i hope they make RPMs of the following:
- twins ice cream truck
I want Soundwave and the Fallen, if they made Jetfire and Starscream, then can make those two.
Can I point out that RPM's aren't diecast. With that out of the way....
Satellite on wheels. This mental image just made my day.
i want monstertruck earth-mode soundwave.
i mean.. it's uuh.. for my son.
I'd like see two seperate halfs of the ice cream truck, plus a full one. I'll glady dish out the 12 bucks for them.
Is there actually any diecast in RPMs? The ones I have, the entire shell is plastic.
I'm only interested in the cars, so I don't have much of a wishlist. I'd happily take the ice-cream Truck. Beyond that, I suppose they could do characters from the extended line. Like Lockdown. I'd probably buy a Lockdown.
G1 RPMs might be interesting. Especially if they were original molds. I can think of a few I'd definitely like, such as Jazz, Tracks and Wheeljack.
I think the packaging on Jetfire I noticed it said Die-Cast, so they might be made of die-cast now. I'm not sure.
rpm's from other lines; like g1;g2;MW and ect. would be nice. maybe a cybertron hotshot?
die cast? not in any of the ones I have. Shame too, as I was quite surprised with the lack of weight the RPMs had.
yeah, the bodies are plastic, but i think the undercarriage is diecast though. i just used the term to differentiate it from the large rpms.
They are all plastic, even the undercarriage. I only corrected you because I don't want people thinking they are diecast only to be let down by finding out they are plastic. So I'm not picking on you post.
*edit* I took a magnet to mine just to see if barricade had a metal bumper. It doesn't but there appears to be something metal in there, probably a weight glued to the bottom inside the shell.
That's what I figure. The whole shell is plastic, but they're definitely heavier than if they were entirely plastic. If you're familiar with similar-sized Legends, the weight difference is obvious.
They need that weight in order to roll properly and I imagine Hasbro probably uses the absolute minimum.
If Jetfire is diecast, it's probably something to do with him not having a big enough chassis to house the weights.
