    First off folks, I'm not really concerned if you dislike this things with a passion or whatever, I just need some assistance.

    I've seen reports of the first wave of single RPM's and the RPM two packs hitting store shelves. Hasbro's little promotional insert that's included in some of the newer toys says you can find RPM's in the vehicle (i.e. Hot Wheels) aisle, but I've checked there AND the Transformers aisle in at least a dozen stores and still no sign of them. Am I missing something? What part of the store have you guys seen them stocked in? Thanks much.

    Yea, in with the TFs at TRU. The stores here have only had one set of the first 4 two-packs on one peg, so they are far from plentiful right now, atleast here.

    Now that I think about I haven't seen them either DN. I'm not into them personally, but I've been keeping an eye out for a friend. I don't think they've hit our part of the country yet. For whatever reason...

    Seen the singles for a while now but only just came across the double packs this morning. So far I've only ever seen the RPMs with the other TF stuff, not with any Hotwheels-like things.

    R.P.M. stands for Robot Powered Machine(s). Basically, they are hot wheels with the robot mode sculpted under the vehicle.

    I haven't seen them in my area either. It seems like most people who don't want them can't spit without hitting them, and those of us that are interested can't find them to save our lives. XD

    Indeed. I only have the Megatron RPM because a supermarket here was giving them away free with Deluxes.

    I haven't seen any or really thought of getting any yet. But I was thinking it would be really cool to have them displayed with their respective Robot Replicas. Don't have the money to buy into all these sublines, but it was a cool thought.

    ...I don't think there's anyone here who doesn't know what they are.

    No sight of them around whatsoever, which is sad, because I definitely want to pick up the two-pack with Bonecrusher when I do spot them. If he's even out - I don't know how the waves on these are organized.
