    RPMs found at mass Retail (Wal Mart) in Bellingham, MA

    RPMs = Robot Powered Machines.

    Found these at an endcap half full at WalMart today, have not seen these yet, if this has been reported, please delete.

    They were $3.46 each or so. Great price, IMO (can't find the Receipt, but, I assure you it was retail.)

    I did a quick review on YouTube:

    Price isn't too bad (at least they aren't near as overpriced as Gravity Bots, which I like but cannot justify the price of a deluxe for), but they just...don't do anything for me.

    Those Cyber Slammer-esque things. Deluxe-priced, you slam them into stuff and the top half of the robot mode pops up out of the vehicle mode. We know of Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, and Sideswipe battle chargers so far.

    Found these in Canada as well. Shame about the exchange rate we have - our dollar is doing pretty good, but I would still have to pay about 6$ for each of these.

    It amazes me how so many people delight in announcing their intentions to not support a product.

    HEY IT'S AWESOME!

    FOR ME NOT TO BUY THESE!! LOLOLLOLLO ROFLFL


    You add nothing of value to these threads. You're not clever or relevant, just annoying threadcrappers.

    Are they Hot Wheels scale or more like Cars scale?

    Personally, I'll pick up a few just because they're cool-looking. Bumblebee and Barricade are a given, with Prime and Megatron a close second.
    Sadly, Megatron's RPM is the best example of his sleek tank alt-mode yet. Also, Prime has an open hitch. I wonder if anything's planned for it.

    I'm gonna go crazy with these. The price is a little higher than I was hoping, but that's not going to keep me from getting them.

    Can't wait to get some of these for my son to play with. He is only four, but loves both Hot-Wheels and Transformers so these give him the best of both worlds!

    He has already requested the track set for Christmas. I'm pretty sure "Santa" will grant his wish on that one.
