New ROTF Robot-Powered-Machines(RPM)

Postby *Soundwave* » Fri Jan 16, 2009 4:21 pm

From some new Toy Fair 2009 preview guide.

Image

Robot Powered Machines (RPM) will be cars with robots molded into the bottom sold in 2-packs and a track set.

This is similar to the previously seen Sideswipe car with the robot molded into the bottom that many thought to be a McD or BK toy.

Discuss!

Yea, I hate when that happens, to see my thread sitting there for 2 days with 30 views and no replies, then to see this with over 200 views like 2 seconds after it was posted.

this could be Hasbro's biggest year ever in recent times.

At least in regards to stuff they themselves have generated (I'd wager a guess that when Star Wars: Episodes 1 and 3 came out they had a heck of a lot of product out there. Ep 2 maybe not so much, but I could be wrong) what with the Transformers sequel (regardless of my opinion on the movie or how Transformers-y it was, it damn sure got a lot of media attention and a big presence in stores) the first GI Joe movie (which hopefully won't be bad enough to halt any plans for a sequel...as much as TF is my first love of toys, GI Joe is probably a better-or even The Best-toyline over all) and a Visionaries revival.


Okay, I'm making that last bit up, but really, is it that friggin' hard? I've got a creative team ready to do the comic for them.
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Blurr, or 3rd Party iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.

TF2 + GI Joe Movie = Lots of dough for hasbro to keep them afloat during these hard economic times.

Actually, you are both right and wrong. The word can legitimately be spelled with an I OR with an A.
