    I've seen these at Walmarts for almost a month. I'm not a fan of Transformers that don't transform, but they are cool.

    Not these. The ones you had in Canada have also been out in the US for a while.

    On a side note, Hasbro has apparently went a little green with the packaging on this product. The figures/cars are attached to the packaging not by twist ties but rather by a small rope or hemp like material. Definately more organic in nature.

    I'm not interested in any class smaller than deluxes so I might not be on the ball for these guys, but are these RPM's that are about the same size as bumper battlers? Seems like they could have just made the bumper battlers with sounds in the first place.

    Damn Hippies!!!

    Yup. About the same size as the Bumper Battlers, if not just a tad smaller. I actually mistook them as the Bumper Battlers releases at first glance until I notice the green "Try Me" stickers.

    Just picked these up over lunch at my local Wal-Mart. I at least like that the Optimus Prime vehicle has clips from Peter Cullen.

    I was actually surprised at the price being just $9.97 instead of $12.88 like the Battle Chargers.

    I could have sworn I've seen these for awhile, but I may be getting them mixed up with those other electronic RPM things..

    I'd rather get the BB Gravity Bots, they look like sacrophagi, but at least they transform... Actually not fond of "tooned" cars, that's why I've been postponing getting those Gravity Bots...

    Absolutely nobody posted about these being available, so yes, it is NEW news if nobody reports it before and something that needs to be documented.

    Optimus' quotes are:
    - Autobots, transform and roll out
    - Move out
    - Turn left!
    - Turn right!
