    Yeah, I guess not many here care about RPMs.

    Still, from what I could gather, the last wave never came out in the United States, but apparently in Asia. (Apparently they are coming out in the USA in "Speed Stars" packaging instead.)

    I found these ones at a German TRU last week, and yesterday I also saw them at Real, a domestic supermarket chain. These photos were taken at the Real store in Moers.

    Also, is the Speed Stars Bumblebee Track Set new?

    And while I'm at it, Real also has Hunt for the Decepticons Deluxe wave 2 (Axor, Rescue Ratchet, Tuner Skids)... for a discount price of 15 instead of 20 Euros (i.e. $21 USD instead of $28 USD).

    Found this at Toys"R"Us. The TFW toy resources section currently lists it as "only released in the Philippines and Asia".

    I honestly had to discipline myself not to buy the RPMs, as I think they looks wonderful in their packages. They would make a great collection to have hanging up.

    This is certainly interesting news; certainly thanks for sharing :thumb

    Speed Stars Long Haul looks nothing like the RPM's one.

    I saw those RPMs in very limited quantity in our tesco stores a month ago or so. Such meh that I already have forgotten about them.

    I really wanted that Jetfire/Megatron set. Maybe there's still hope.

    I care about them, well my son does. They are his favorite toys. He has battles of transformers vs. Lightning McQueen Cars, it's hilarious

    That Cyber Hunt Bumblebee with his name spelled in Cyberglyphics on the packaging is weird. Is that even trademarkable?

    All that stuff has been out in Canada for quite a while except the deluxes (Axor and friends).
