    Yes, these were supposed to be released back 2009 but TFW2005 has them listed as not released. Found them at a local TRU in San Jose, CA.

    RPM releases are really weird. Still all the info I have seen points to this being the actual first retail sighting, so up it goes :)

    Man I've still yet to see Screamer and Rollbar in the multipacks. I'll get these if I see them.

    I've had Skids and Mudflap for weeks, and I'm pretty sure I got them on clearance.

    I saw these at the TRU in Wayne, NJ today.
    I didn't realize that it would have been news.

    Wait, this is news? I saw these about a month ago here in Ohio. Gah, if I had known these were new... Trouble is, who gives a toss about RPMs?

    Bought a Starscream on clearance because the new ones were mixed in with some older ones. They didn't scan so I waited a min. and he ended up just scanning the older BB 1. $1.42 after 25% off clearance. SS is cool and will def get Jetfire.

    I do. My OCD requires me to keep the information in Resources as accurate as possible.

    Me, I think they're rather cool. (Though I think the upcoming "Robot Racers"-- the robot modes bent in a position so it looks like they're racing-- look pretty lame, and will be passing on those.)

    just checked the TRU in Totowa, NJ (right near Wayne) and I didn't see any RPMs at all. Are they putting them in a separate section than the regular TF isle?

    99% of stores stock them in the Hot Wheels-type vehicle aisle.
