Looks like an unfortunate lighting situation combined with a reflection from the shelf. The in tray pics appear normal. Most of the silver and chrome bits look pretty dark in the pics.

Calling $75 steep for this is just silly considering what the originals and past Devy reissues go for. I was very pleasantly surprised that it was only that much.

I don't know, in shaj's review, devy is only a little bit taller than generations scavenger who is roughly voyager sized. As I said, this is good for those that want him but not for me.

When it comes to G1 reissues... unless it's an extremely hard to find toy (like those Japan exclusive dino tapes), I want it to be "different." G1 Devi, Hot Rod, Starscream... they're pretty easy to find, and with no significant changes, are an easy pass. Giving SS the Megatron gun would be a pull if I didn't already have that, so kudos there.

I want to see Devie done in Diaclone colors. I want to see a Shattered Glass Perseus color scheme. The anime version from a few years back? Gimmie. Hell, I'll even go for an arctic camo battle color. Just something "different." But just standard same old same old... meh. That's what ebay's for.

Diaclone G1 Prime would be nice. The Sunstreaker release where he looks like fused with Prowl looks nice, too.

And all the triple changers were done really well. Except Broadside......woof.

I agree with Burn here. Rerelease some of those guys that came later, let us enjoy some G1 Target/Head/Power/God/Brain-masters and some G1.5 guys. Better yet, Rerelease Thunderclash without gold plastic, or at least better gold plastic.

I do have Thunderclash. He's awesome. But he would be even more so 100% complete and UNBROKEN. :michaelbay:

Awesome in every aspect of this. There are some amazing and easy repaints that could be done with these that would reap huge benefits. eHobby can't be the only ones to step it up for the G1 repaints.


-Kanrabat- wrote:Different like the latest Astrotrain and Blitzwing. Those were unique plus a nice niche hommage. We need more like these.


Agree as well. It would have been nice to get those done as MachTackle and "sorta not -Flywheels" proper a la eHobby
rename instead of as Astotrain and Blitzing in secret colors. If that makes any sense. Otherwise a US release Overcharge and anime Astrotrain would have been a much better repaint in the proper name. Or just reissue MachTackle and Flywheels proper G1 toys.

In full go ahead with this move. So much amazing stuff in 1.5 as well as late G1. GPS be damned... or hopefully corrected for by now.

Walmart Exclusive G1 Devastator and Minibots Available for Preorder

Postby william-james88 » Wed Aug 08, 2018 12:37 pm

The Walmart exclusive Transformers G1 Reissues of Devastator and the Minibots are currently available for preorder on Walmart.com. While these are showing up at brick and mortar in Canada, all except for Hot Rod, we have yet to get a brick and mortar sighting in the US.

For those outside the US, Robot Kingdom still has a few of the G1 reissues in stock, click here to find those links.

Here is hoping all those who want these toys get them. Also, just for info, if any of you have any inclination towards getting Outback, do not hesitate if you see him. He is short packed in order for there to be three Bumblebees, which are also in incredibly high demand due to the remolded cartoon face never before released in the US.

Here are the links:

Thanks for the heads up and the links. I got what I needed most. Tailgate and Swerve. Pre-ordered Starscream last time he popped up and those were the most important for me. Holding steady on Devy, may wait to see if he pops up in-store.

Is good that everyone loves 'em G1 bricks! :APPLAUSE:

Please continue to support them! (I wonder why Pipes was not included)

Btw, are there plans to release the G1 minibots from season 1 (aka TFC#12)? I've got 'em all but it'd be good for the other collectors to have them too!
Buy Official Hb/TakaraTitancityformers at retail price or else the 3rd party makers win!

"Shelfwarming"
Btw, its been nearly a year now and TR Soundwave and Blaster aren't moving in the shelve of TRU, is that shelfwarming or what?
