Thanks to InDemandToys and KapowToys, we finally have a potential price, shipping date and stock image for the previously confirmed Walmart Exclusive G1 Vintage Optimus Prime reissue. Sporting the same curiosities on the box as the preview seen earlier at a show. With other G1 Vintage reissues already hitting sale prices, we can only guess that Optimus Prime will not be alone in this wave, and with the recent vote on Astrotrain Vs Perceptor, we also have had confirmation this latest spate of reissues is to run into spring 2020 as well.

Optimus Prime will be shipping late January with a price tag of £49.99 at InDemandToys and £47.97 at KapowToys.

Transformers News: G1 Optimus Prime Reissue Release Date, Price and Stock Image

With characters like Hound and Blitzwing being prominent characters in the movies, it would seem like an excellent chance for Hasbro to finally deliver a reissue of figures. What are you hoping to return alongside this legendary figure? Drop in on the Energon Pub and get that wish-listing gear grinding.

Even though I have a vintage G1 Hound, I would love a reissue of him. And I know it's possible because of the recent E-Hobby repaint.

I’m glad they’re reissuing G1 Optimus because I’ve been dying to find one that isn’t used, a KO, or very expensive.

If you already have a good condition vintage trailer but a broken-ass incomplete Optimus, that reissue is a blessing.

I think in America at a retail Walmart store, unless they are raising their prices on everything the price will be $34.99 /to 39.99 not any higher because of the size of the box.

I just polished off having all the G1 figures with an extra Bumblebees and extra Hot Rod. :)

The price has already been rumoured to be $50 at Walmart because of a listing that was found. However, I'd expect that price to only stay there for a month or so as we've seen with Hot Rod how sales can hit.

I was hoping that this wouldn't jump the 40 quid mark. Might wait it out to see if it goes on discount somewhere... but being a TF G1 centric collector and not having an original Optimus is a sacrilege which I've been hoping to remedy. And a trailer isn't too important for me as I have the Mp10 one, the g1 trailer would just take more room, though it'd have been nice.

That’s only happened once though. While Christmas shopping the past two weeks I picked up a hot rod a couple times and took it to a scanner and every time he was full price.

I know people are expecting this guy to be dropped in price but it’s more than likely not going to happen. Hot rod dropped ONCE and now he’s a shelf warmer while Devastator and Starscream and even the minibots have constantly sold out. That will probably happen with this.

It will depend on the demand/supply.
Look like they underproduced Devy and Screamers, but overproduced Hot Rod.
As for the minibots, they keep being restocked. I do hope their popularity will bring more in the future.

But would you buy a yellow Hound with a Bumblebee head? ;)

We'll all get our chance once the Studio Series covers all the variants.

Though I think this next wave will just be Optimus, i'd be surprised if they didn't reissue soundwave again as well.
The new Optimus reissue is on ebay now as well for about $70.

Just checked another Walmart, had a million of G1 Hot Rod but no minibots. For anyone who has seen them, are the minibots on shelves with the rest of the Transformers?

Also, how accurate is brickseek for stuff like this?

They were in the yellow Bumblebee displays in the action alleys but our Walmarts have moved them to the pegs in the TF section. Some people have reported finding them around electronics.

Also the WM app is not accurate when it comes to stock. I've seen them at several stores that reports "out of stock". Brick seek probably won't do ya any good.

I just found them at my local Walmart, on the pegs; Swerve, Outback, Tailgate... but no Bumblebee...

Between my two Walmarts one had them on a massive display outside the electronics department, the other never got them at all. #-o
