2018 G1 Transformers Hot Rod and Devastator Reissues Found in the US

Postby william-james88 » Fri Sep 21, 2018 9:59 pm

Motto: "'till All Are One"
We recently poste that the G1 reissues were going to appear in stores soon, with Starsream already being found. Well now Hot Rod and Devastator have been found at Walmart too. Ryan on Facebook spotted Devastator in California while zatara1701 found Hot Rod in Spring, Texas, north side of Houston. Devastator is 74$ while Hot Rod is around $30. And yes, both are packaged backwards. We still have yet to see the Minibots in stores but that will most probably change soon since if one of the price points would be stocked at Walmart, it would be the smallest one.

If you find the G1 reissues near you, please let other fans know through our sightings section and sightings forum where you can report by state.

Can't wait for the minibots. Those are what I'm most excited about. Already have the updated Starscream from when he came out in Japan. Devie and Hot Rod aren't really improvements on the originals. The minibots, though, those are improvements I don't have.

There are some minor differences. The Constructicons have had their springs removed, Hot Rod is the original mold with the Targetmaster chest sticker, and both feature a new rubsign that doesn't change color, it just reveals the faction symbol.

Exactly. The changes aren't enough on Devie and Hot Rod to warrant a new display figure. If it had been Japan's anime Devastator, I'd buy that in a heart beat, as that would be "new" for me. Don't know what they could do to Hot Rod (maybe different paint apps?) but if I wanted a targetmaster version, I'd just buy a targetmaster version and get a gun as well lol

Starscream has the Megatron gun with remolded hands, so would be worth the purchase, but as I said, I already bought it when it came out in Japan years ago.

The minibots, though? The paint apps are different, making them better display pieces. Bumblebee even has his anime face. Thus, for me, it's worth the purchase as I didn't get these versions when they released the box set in Japan.

I agree. That is how they were originally packaged in the Devastator Gift Set except in styrofoam. Hot Rod is an utter no QC factory packaging nightmare for the whole run. Thinking of opening mine up and fixing it.

For those who opened theirs, need to clarify something.

I got the re-issue 2000 Hotrodimus. His flames were decals. TFC Hotrodimus targetmaster had his flames tampoed, though his thigh decals were that of the originals meaning they get damaged when applied and transformed.

I heard here that this Hotrodimus has the adjusted engine meaning the "targetmaster" mold but the flames are decals.

Please confirm?

Is there a street date on the G1 stuff? I've been in several Walmarts and while using the app/assistant to check prices I've checked my wish list and it marked the G1 reissues as in stock but nowhere to be seen.

A few pages back, there was a photo with the week beginning October 1st as the street date. of course, there are going to be those stores that don't abide by it, but start checking next week, or even this weekend, if its not out of the way for you.
I enjoy asking questions, and always have. Please take no personal offense when I do. It's not about justification, is about acquiring knowledge.

I am very much interested in Four of the Botcon 2016 Customization Class toys (Medix, Shattered Glass Ratchet, G2 Ratchet, and Marvel Comic Ratchet), willing to pay fair price, PM if interested in selling.

Ah, that makes sense. Thanks, I don't follow this thread super close.

I'm only hunting the minibots, which still seem to be online only. I have a bunch of Wallys in town and I tend to pass a lot in my work travels. I really just want to hold the larger reissues in hand and get a feel for them. See if they spark my interest. G1 is a rabbit hole I'm giving a wide berth, a very wide berth.

It's nice to have a niche like that. Having been around for the original series, and the reissues in the early 2000's, and selling them all since, these for the most part don't interest me. I love the idea, but for me it's like trying to catch feathers in the wind, once they've been scattered, you really cant get them all back again. And of course, there are some differences that make them "not quite" what they originally were.

I might get the Devastator set if I see it. Still- not having that Styrofoam insert, or the spring loaded fists/drills again, wont make it quite the same.

I wonder if they’re going to reissue other G1 combiners like Superion and Menasor as well as other characters like the Dinobots if they proved successful. I’d pay to buy a reissued G1 Grimlock. :-?

They're more likely to do combiner reissues that have had their molds refreshed recently like the Seacons and Combaticons. The Dinobot molds are lost/damaged beyond use so they'd have to do some extensive rebuilding to get those guys out again.

However, the exclusive Studio Series tape reissues are entirely new molds so they seem to be testing the waters at a small scale right now and larger new mold reissues could happen eventually.

The G1 Dinobot molds are long gone, having never been reissued after Generation 2.

Here's something interesting I noticed today while out on my hunt. I was at Walmart and using the assistant to check prices and noticed this.

Minibots


They're no longer marked as online only. Potential good news.


Between two stores I was able to get put my hands on Hot Rod, Starscream and Devastator. Some sweet packaging for sure. I was amazed how good of condition they all were. I did not get the feels and left them for someone else (made a post in the local sightings thread as well).

Man, I had zero desire to pick up any of these reissues aside from Bumblebee (if I could ever find one....), but then I saw Devestator in store, and the feels hit me like a Kenworth with no brakes going downhill. I bought it quick like and have zero regrets.
