    I think they are pretty nifty, if you have the Devastator Showdown track set.

    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 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.... ;)

    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.

    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.

    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.
