    Saw Optimus Prime/RPM Sideways here:
    Target
    3369 Princeton Rd
    Hamilton, OH 45011
    *Store #2441*


    Saw RPM Long Haul Here:

    Wal-Mart "Supercenter"
    3201 Princeton Road
    Hamilton, OH 45011
    *Store #3502*


    To Note: I did see both Sideways/Long Hauls RPMs along with Ironhide/Bumblebee #2 at both Target & Wal-Mart (though I don't have pics of the later 2).

    I figured that with 10 news credits as well as being a member on this board for many years would buy my some credibility. However I'll wait till someone with authority asks for pics.

    The other thing of interest is there looks to be 2 variations to the 08 BB Commander series one with an Autobot logo on the hood the other without.

    Wow, I just finally found the first Wave, and I had to travel to three different states to find them. Everywhere I looked in Colorado, Utah and Wyoming, nobody even has a place to stock these. Finally found the Wave 1 singles and doubles out here in Kentucky.

    I can't even seem to find them online. Last I saw, BBTS, Entertainment Earth AND HTS don't have these in stock. What's the deal?

    Oddly enough, the first wave of both the single and the multi-packs is utterly abundant here in Germany.

    Huh. Didn't know those Battle Chargers were new. I hadn't been to Target in a while, so I just assumed, given my Target's track record, that those were old.

    In any case, I'm not sure which RPMs are new, but I saw Battle Chargers Optimus Prime and Sideswipe.

    What is the difference between this RPM single-packed bumblebee and the last one in the last wave?

    Based on the officially released pictures, the Wave 1 Bee has the battle mask, the Wave 2 Bee is a retool with the regular face.

    I saw the remote controlled guy at Target yesterday but, I haven't seen the RPM's yet. They seem kind of neat.

    Maybe these could be fun toys for many different people, but just not interersted in them.They are interesting, but these things are just the same of everything, like RPM's(Hot Wheels) and the Remote Control RPM's ( RC car). None of them can like transform, so let's not bother to get them.

    Waiting for something big.....
