    Stopped by the Elgin, IL Walmart today and almost didn't catch this.

    Hasbro has re-issued at least two of the RPM Battle Chargers (Bumblebee and Cyber Armor Optimus Prime) under the Speed Stars banner.

    The two contain cross-sells for each other, so I'm assuming these are the only two re-issued at this time.

    I only collect the BB and Sideswipe versions. I saw the repaint of Sideswipe with the black rims once at Walmart and never again. Maybe he will get rereleased now.

    They aren't replacing generations in the UK. All their email said was that they would be offering these as well as main line figures, nothing about them serving as a replacement for the generations line.

    I wish they'd do some actual Runamuck and Runabout homages in this line.

    :eek:  I'd like to invoke my 5th amendment rights, as my response to your question may serve to incriminate me.
