    I was on my bimonthly toy run when I stumbled upon these fine pieces of die cast.

    Transformers RPMs: Metal Heroes Series.

    [​IMG]

    I found these at the Toys R’ Us at Robinsons Galleria in Quezon City, Philippines and their on sale, prices are marked down to Php 199.75 (approximately $4.10 USD) each.

    Here are a few more pics.

    I don't collect RPMs but there is one on this set that I definitely needed to have…

    SOUNDWAVE

    He was bought on-site, did a little photoshoot as soon as I got home and now, I'd like to share the pictures with you all.

    War for Cybertron robot mode?

    [​IMG]
    Revenge of the Fallen bio?

    [​IMG]
    TransFormers Animated vehicle mode?

    He's an amalgam of several Transformers continuities.

    Looks wonderful! I hope he's out here soon.

    Also, it looks like yours is missing the purple Decepticon symbol on the bottom.

    Awe! I didn't notice that before. Damn! It's my first RPM to. I guess I'd need to have it exchanged. I just hope they don't give me a hard time. Last time I tried to have a broken Transformer exchanged at a toy store was a debacle. They wouldn’t take it back at first and insisted that all items sold at their store are in perfect condition and if my toy was broken, it was me that broke it. Well toy stores of the world, Hasbro’s QC is not perfect, it’s barely passable and bordering on sucking. Plus I’ve seen my share of toys being thrown to the floor in your stores, so don’t tell me everything is in perfect condition.

    Thanks for the info, SoundMaster.

    This is embarasing.

    Thanks for the pics! This will be one of the very few RPMs in my collection. I love the bizarre fusion of movie, WFC and Animated. It's also about time these things were diecast. I generally have trouble saying no to anything Soundwave, so that probably has something to do with it, as well. :D

    Actually, looking at the picture on the back of the card, I think he doesn't have the purple Decepticon symbol. Looks like he was designed without it, which is odd. Although then yours has a space where it should be, so one looks as though it was added later in the design process.

    I'm almost positive you're looking at the new Soundwave Earth Mode design in Transformers:p rime.

    The "Nightwatch Bumblebee vs. Patrol Barricade" 2-pack has also been released in the Philippines:

    I'm so happy because of the RPMs price markdown here. :)
