Keep in mind that's rumored to be a Shanghai Exhibition exclusive making it very rare and very expensive if all you want is a cartoon Frenzy figure. Although, just existing does make it a possible future Walmart release just like their use of other repainted Japanese reissues.

My local Walmarts here in AZ have a few Primes left on the shelf but no sightings of Gears or Warpath yet. :BANG_HEAD:

From what I've heard, Walmarts only received two of each in stock. They may have already been purchased at your local store. I know I picked up the two each in mine when the UPC wasn't even recognized yet. I had to have a manager manually override at the register. So, brickseek hadn't showed quantities because they weren't registering in Walmart's system.

Kapow: Only getting the upcoming tapes [] and some re-stocks of Wave 1, they have been knocked on the head for worldwide sale now and very exclusive to the US.


So that's a big middle finger to the Rest of the World, eh? Thanks Hasbro... :evil:

You sound suprised, I always guessed this was the case. Could be a good time to make friends in the States and start saving for shipping costs :P

Well it figures I guess. Takara doesn't give a damn about the fanbase outside of Japan, so it follows suit for Hasbro I suppose. "We are the World" and all that.

Well I've been buying these reissues for other people, so I guess it's eBay now. Or paying extortionate Customs via BBTS... :roll:

That means there was more demand than anticipated. They can always make more. Plus they are getting the tapes. Hasbro can still make more Soundwaves.

I wonder if Walmart hadn't been wanting rid of Asda for the past few years, if the reissues would have made the way over in small quantities

We are almost up to date with our smaller sister country ;) We got Overpriced Prime but not the new minibots yet. I am sure they will be found sooner or later.

I finally found Gears at a local Walmart today! No sign of Warpath, though. I wonder how short packed those two are, honestly. The pegs had several Bumblebees and Swerves, but just one lonely Gears, which I bought, of course, and no Warpath. The hunt continues! I hope Soundwave and his minions won't be as hard to find when they're eventually released.

I also picked up the reissued Optimus Prime a week or so ago. I like the shades of red and blue used much better than those on the 25th Anniversary edition from the Universe line. However, the stickers are very disappointing. They are thin and flimsy. One of the knee cap ones tore as I was peeling it off the sticker sheet. Luckily, I was able to get the other piece out without difficulty and mostly line it up so the tear isn't very obvious. Hot Rod and Starscream had nice thick stickers that were sturdy and would remain rather rigid while you applied them, making it far easier to line them up correctly. Hasbro has obviously cut costs on this reissue line already. I will say that these thinner stickers at least stick very well. I haven't had any peel up yet. I struggled a bit with Starscream to get some of the torso stickers to finally stay in place. One advantage the 25th Anniversary reissue of Optimus Prime had was the tampographed Autobot symbols on his shoulders, instead of stickers. The ones on this new one are, as I said, very thin, and the molded rivet detailing under where they are supposed to go crinkles them up. They just don't look good. I think thicker stickers would have solved that issue too.

Lol, everyone here is talking about the new Minibots, and I'm still looking for just one to appear on the shelf, much less the one I want(Bumblebee). Kudos to you though ;)

We still have Overpriced Prime, and we had Devy, Screamer, and Hot Rod here before they sold out. No sign of Soundwave or his buddies though

I don't think Soundwave and his minions have been releasaed yet. I did miss out on Devastator, though. I only saw him twice, and each time hesitated because of the $75 price tag. When they went on clearance, they were nowhere to be found, of course.

I want OP but I'm not paying $50 for it. I did notice it's going for about $40 on eBay. Might snag it at the next eBay sale

Trust me, don't do it. It is an Ebay scam. A few of my friends have been scammed by sellers like this, who sell the reissue Prime for 40$, and the mini bots for 6-8$. They are scams, please avoid them

Well, I live in Elkhart, right next to South Bend, IN Despite what certain presidential hopefuls might be saying, the economy in this area is NOT healthy. Toys above the $30 price range rarely sell well, and almost every Walmart in my area still has a full section of G1 Primes just sitting there and collecting dust.


Its taken extreme use of my will power not to buy one yet. :-D
