    I'm actually surprised they packed these 2 together. Often they get us to buy 2 different packs in order to get the correct partners.

    Also is that international packing... cant blame them its not like RPM's need bios.

    An interesting other thing I noted was that it says they serve under Ironhide. I cant say I've read the book but I was under the impression they were teamed up with BB

    I wonder why only Skids has the "Autobot" prefix and not Mudflap, since both names are usually generic terms I'd think they'd need to use Autobot in front of them.

    Either way, I don't really care for RPM's all that much (I only ever wanted a Barricade one, and that crave vanished when I heard about Human Alliance Barricade w/ Frenzy), but for those who do care they look pretty with good paint app control.

    Question for those who have them.

    How do they feel/roll compared to die-cast cars like Hot Wheels? Do they feel cheap being made from plastic? Do they roll far? They are starting to grow on me, and I'd prefer to know if I'm going to be disappointed before I decide to buy.

    cheap gimmick toys

    I'm seeing more & more of these cheap gimmick toys being produced daily. I Love the Transformers lines but come on... am I the only one who thinks these are not fit to carry the Transformers logo. Every day I watch video's on You Tube of people who gotta work for the company ( Peaugh ) cause all they do is praise worthless junk... RPM ... Gravity Bots & lets not forget Mighty Mugs.

    Welcome to your first post.
    I 'd second your opinion !!!

    But what matters the most (IMHO) if these stuff occupied the shelves/pegs of my beloved deluxe's , I 'd complain more...

    It's called merchandising. And hey, simply because YOU don't like something doesn't mean that NOBODY should. Plus, if you don't like people praising that "worthless junk" so much, why are you watching the videos in the first place?

    If there is an actual "vehicle mode" on a Transformer? I'd say there is definitely an expectation for transformation into a robot mode and rightfully so.

    I want my kid to hold the same joy and amazement I had when I got my first transformer when it actually transformed. That's what made it the most unique toy of it's kind! Now just push a button or flip it over for robot mode? There's nothing magical or special about that.

    Sorry, it's just something that I personally won't buy for myself or for my kid. The future generation deserves something better than flip over TF's. :( 

    I don't want to say it, but even GoBots had arms and legs, these things... well...
