    Is that an RPMs Prowl I spy? May just be a Prowl look on a Barricade. And the track set looks kinda dumb.

    Those stealth force vehicles are kinda tempting, if only because they're so much like MASK cars. :D 

    I'm gonna cross my fingers and hope that this is Hasbro testing the waters to see if they could successfully bring back MASK...

    Wait, so they have Transformer vehicles that kinda half-transform, but then get stuck?

    What's the dealio with that?

    Well if RPM's were meant to compete with hotwheels then these weapon pop up versions are a logical progression given hotwheels whole battle force 5 line of toys which are all basically cars with attachable or pop out weapons. I might want to pick up one or two just for the hell of it but the RPMs generally aren't my cup of tea.

    So are there two RPMs Screamers? I still have yet to see the one that was packed with Ironhide at retail.

    It's for stuff like in the 2007 movie where Barricade transforms his headlights into probes to menace Sam Witwicky. Except these are more like "driving along, spot an enemy, transform to attack mode and blow some traffic away".

    Like Fort Max said, the appeal to us older collectors is in the fact it's a partial revival of MASK, with Transformers characters. Kids will probably love racing their cars along with pop out guns regardless.

    RPMs surprise me...simply by their continued existence, but at the same time I can't help but feel this is wasted engineering. :/

    Wow these look so odd and lame. Am I a hypocrite for loving Robot Heroes & Mighty Muggs which don't transform - and hating these things and RPMs? So lame. At least make them transform to another vehicle like Mask.

    Don't get this at all :(

    Amen. I probably wouldn't pick any of these up, (unless Human alliance figures can sit in Hound, that is).

    I'd love to see the return of MASK. Failing that, I'd love to see a transformers subline where the Autobots decide to share their technology with the humans after all, the result being morphing vehicles that can fit HA figures. Hell, why not just incorporate MASK into the Tf canon, and have them as a secret ops unit like NEST. Just a thought.
