for real i would rather pay for f.a.b.s or cyber slamers or even a good powerbot
I don't bother getting the RPMs, FABs, or Cyber Slammers.
I think they are pretty nifty, if you have the Devastator Showdown track set.
personally i won't buy any of them
I love these things. Especially the Devastator playset. They're a bit on the pricey side, but whatever. There are worse things I could be spending my money on.
I think they're awesome. I just don't have enough money left over after buying the actual Transformers. Otherwise, I'd be all over these, Robot Replicas, etc.
I'm buying one of each character to display in vehicle mode.
I like the RPMS! Since I display almost all my figures in bot mode, this is a nice way to have a small-scale, non-intrusive representation of their vehicle modes. My only complaint is that I wish they had gotten the full Hot Wheels treatment, with die-cast and slightly nicer paint apps.
But overall I like them. Eventually, when they've all come out, I'll probably grab one of those wall-cases (shudder) Hot Wheels collectors use to display them all....
I love RPMs!
I voted FAB but, that Powerbots Powwer-Up OP is pretty cool looking.
It is not a waste of money if you didn't buy them.
and it isn't a waste of money of Hasbro is selling them (and making a profit.)
I think they are nifty for younger kids to get them into TFs and then let em have the real TFs when they are old enough to handle the transformation.
RPMs will sell well with the Hot Wheels/Matchbox/Cars audience. I personally don't like them but, I can see why they exist.
I think these are junk compared to actual transformers, but they are good for younger children who might not have lots of money. So i guess it depends on interests and financial situations.
i like them, i wished i had the spare cash to get the devastator set and all of them. it just sucks sideswipe won't look like sideswipe
I'd buy them if they were free. Or of G1 vehicles.
They aren't really my thing, but I can see how they would appeal to people to do things like this.
I guess all that really matters is it doing well for Hasbro or not. Depending on how well they are doing with Hasbro will determine if it's something we see more of or if it will just be an experiment for them.
I actually like the RPMs, only have one of the bonus buy one get one free little package, but they are pretty cool, and I'll be able to give my nephew Transformers that he can play with that won't break if he touches them.
Toys are a waste of money.
Then why are you even posting in this thread?
This is also the 'Transformers TOY Discussion thread.
I love FABs. They're FABulous.
Kando, don't play like that. We know your love of the plastic crack. I think he's just being funny.
I don't collect them, but the FAB's tend to have the most playability of the alternate lines. They still transform by design, and some of them are better looking than the deluxe full transforming toys. RPMs are cute, but it's just too Hot Wheels for my taste.
