    Saw some new RPMs 2-packs, and decided to pick one up. This particular one contained Sideways and Longhaul. Are they worth it?

    Sideways-

    The vehicle (mode) looks more like the FAB Sideways than the deluxe. It has some nice details on the engine, and a nice big con symbol on the front.

    Also, the license plate says: EUR 5P7C

    Turning it over reveals the robot.

    It's not SUPER accurate, but it's still got some really nice details. There's silver, gray, blue, and red paint on the robot itself. There's also a con symbol in purple at the top, and his name on the bottom.

    Overall- Not anything spectacular, but still a neat toy.

    Longhaul-

    When you compare him the other RPMs, he's BIG. The truck is quite warped in size from his on screen counterpart, but it adds an extra bit of charm, IMO. There's a lot of dirt/rust detail in the bed, a large con symbol, and the numbers 0728 on the front.

    He also, surprisingly has a working dump bed!

    The robot mode's appearance is hindered due to the wheels, and the proportions of it, but it's still a pretty good representation of Longhaul. There's a purple con symbol at the top, and his name at the bottom. The robot uses green, silver, and red paint.

    Overall- Highly recommended if you are into the RPMs line.

    I found some of these RPM two-for-one packs which figures out to $2 each so I bought them. I bought Bumblebee with Prime and Ironhide with Ratchet. They are not as heavy as I'd hoped, but for $2 I like them. For $4, I don't think I will buy any. I hope I can find the two-pack reviewed here.

    Nice review!

    Though I'm not into the RMP line, there's a chance I might pick up Long Haul if he's cheap here in Canada.

    I love Long Haul, the dirt painted on his dump bed was such a great touch. I'm still lookin' for Sideways badly, haven't found him yet.

    I think it's clever that the wheels in vehicle mode match up in position with the wheels for the robot mode on Longhaul.

    I really like how Long Haul and Rampage both have movable components.
