If only (for me). I haven't seen him for less then 50 online and never reached my store only the carded g1 ones did about 2 months ago. Probably see him by Christmas if he shows up. But Studio Series & Siege right as rain....usually. heh Amazing Spider-Man reference.

The local WalMart still shows the full retail price, but if you scan it on the price check it comes up $35. I'll wait for another price cut.

That means all those other overpriced OPs sold at your location, I guess the price wasn't so tough to swallow for those people.

Did you scan the toy? Although my WalMart still had them listed on the shelf at full price, the scan price was $35.

There are more issues than that regarding a reissue.

Yeah, I know alot of the issues that would make this reissue particularly difficult to happen, and not just the "anti-gun" thing.

Well, space blasters seem to be more acceptable anyway...
A re-licensing of the Astro Magnum mold wouldn't seem to be completely out of the question - if it's still intact. I mean, ToyCo has sold licensed Transformers merch relatively recently, so they would seem to have an amicable enough relationship with HasTak for a licensing the other way.

Transformers G1 Soundwave WalMart Reissue Found in Canada

Postby Stargrave » Sun Jul 14, 2019 3:02 am

Motto: "It’s all the in the reflexes"
Weapon: Glass Gas Gun
As reported all the way back in January here we've been eagerly awaiting the new Wal-Mart re-release of Transformers G1 Soundwave with Buzzsaw. Well thanks to member DesertDog at TFW2005 we have visual proof of his arrival! At least in Canada, which should give us at least a rough indication of when we'll be receiving it elsewhere around the globe.

That's right this G1 fan favorite, the Sonic Iconic, the Chest that beats the Rest has officially kicked off his 97th retirement tour. Let's rest assured it won't be his last.

Will you be picking him up this time around? Share your thoughts with the Seibertron crew in the forums and stay tuned for the latest and greatest in Transformers news!

70$CAN for Soundwave PLUS Buzzsaw. Contrary to the similarly priced Optimus Prime, THAT is a relatively fair price. Let's hope there's plenty to go around and there will be a sale down the line. Because I already have a reissue, that's the only way I'll ever double-dip.

If the number of units produced are as limited as Starscream's, Soundwave will sold out fast even at full price. Especially because he's COMPLETE with a minion, unlike the trailer-less Optimus Prime.

Hmm, nostalgia and if I happen to be perusing through the Walmart toy aisle with a bunch of disposable income that day might make me do it. But if all 3 of those factors aren’t lined up that day it’s a pass. I’ve still got my ‘84-‘85 MISB Soundwave and Buzzsaw and the last Walmart Exclusive (at the time) reissue so... :BOT:

Key word: MISB.
If you're a boxed guy, just get the Walmart reissue to open and play with. Sure, G1 box and all, but the last one have the "book style" box if I remember? Plus it have the big double-tape chest. This here G1 reissue will have the normal chest. Plus the minions will also come.

Having one sealed of a different edition and one open to play with of the current one is a nice way to collect. At least you'll be enjoying the mold. That's still double-dipping and you could just open the one you currently have and skip this one too. Keeping your old G1 reissue sealed now make no sense as the new one is coming out after all.

Does anyone have any tips on where I could find a Soundwave reissue online? I'm in Australia so walmart isn't an option for me.

My best guess would be ebay, but have any online retailers had the previous G1 reissues in stock? maybe they could possibly be getting some Soundwaves in?

First, Welcome!
Second, just be patient. All exclusives will come worldwide sooner or later, in one store or another.

Online price for OP finally dropped to $35. Have a feeling it'll go lower but bit the bullet. Always wanted this as a kid.

I dont see how thats a fair price. The rerelease of Starscream was 50$ and both bots are around the same size so I dont see how 1 casette minion can be an additional 20$. This feels super overpriced to me. I really expected him to be 50$

50$ for Starscream? That must have been the price on sale because if I remember, Starscream was also 69.99$ at it's normal price.



Oh, just found out that G1 Optimus Prime at Walmart.ca is now 39$CAN!

Not surprising. The G1 Soundwave toy has never been sold without at least one of its minions.
