Great news for you Americans!
Even if it's a bit pricey, it's cheaper than the vintage original and it's way better than some Chinese bootleg.

Wasn't there a lot of QC issues with this set? :MAXIMAL:

If you dig many pages back, I asked that question because the Takara Encore "anime colored" version that I got was stable as a house of cards. But the Walmart one was confirmed to be rock solid.

Damnit! I just missed out again! I had to wait until today to make an order, and of course, now it's out of stock, even though it stayed in stock for several days. I kept checking back when I first heard G1 Devastator was restocked at Walmart.com, and on the day when I can finally order it, it's gone! :-(

Huh, one of my local Walmarts restocked Soundwave. Haven't seen him for over a month since the original stock sold out. I've seen the tapes come and go a few times, but this was the first time I've seen Soundwave in a while.

I never saw Soundwave nor his casettes in any Walmarts I went. Ever. The things sold out lightning fast, by fans and scalpers alike.

Those who skipped in hope for a sale were complete fools.

I have 7 Walmart's in my immediate area. As of thursday, they all still had plenty if Soundwaves and cassettes. Selling out is wholly dependent on location. I was a complete fool to pay full price.

No, you did the right thing.
Because distribution is always a gamble and when you bought yours, you cannot know how much would be available.

Also, SEVEN Walmarts in your area. Man. The USA have LOTS of people. Or if you have a car, it make "your area" much larger.

My whole city have 3 Walmarts and they are very far appart. Got no car and Laval busses suck. Only Montreal have 12, but that's for the whole island. Hunting there would require me to spend the whole day and buy an expensive weekend bus pass for that purpose alone. Something I never did. Guess, I'll just stick with my old TrU reissue.

Finally saw Soundwave and his cassettes for the first time this weekend. Passed on them. Cannot justify the $50 for him right now

Are there any differences between the SDCC 2009 Soundwave reissue and the 2019 G1 Vintage reissue for Walmart?

Unless you already have the cassettes, you should have gotten them. Soundwave himself is much more common.

Wanted to shout out to the gang I also saw 5 Soundwaves and 1 Cassette pack at my local Wal-Mart...which is by nobody :lol: but just the same check your local stores if you regretted passing them up the first time this might be your last chance.

I don't really want either, they would be nice to have, but unlike Devastator, they aren't something I really want.

Swerve and Devy are still the only 2 reissues i've gotten so far. I'll get them if they are cheaper and I have money, but they are low on priority list.

No matter how great the thing is, buying it if you don't really want it would be indeed a waste of money.

From what I understand the 2009 version has a clear chest while the 2019 version has a tinted chest like the original and is lacking a rub sign.

Thanks to a heads up from fellow Seibertronian Solipsist we've learned that the G1 Walmart reissue of Optimus Prime has been marked down to $25.00! Many fans were turned off by this toy's high price tag and lack of a trailer. At this new price tag this is one reissue that's hard to pass up.

Click HERE or on the images below to head to Walmart and get your G1 Optimus today! Share your thoughts in the forum and as always stay tuned to Seibertron for the ultimate in Transformers news.

Getting this and Beewun Prime together beats getting that two-pack from TakTom...that is if a Walmart has both at once.
