We have reported already of the Transformers G1 Reissue toyline appearing in United States stores - as you can see in our story here - but fellow Seibetronian Bounti76 has some additional information from a Walmart store in Utah: it seems as though some pricing changes are in effect, as the Hot Rod set is priced at $15 USD rather than the previously seen $30, and with no signs of a clearance or sale ticket or label!

Check out the image below, and make sure to let us know if other Walmart stores (or any store, for that matter) are also offering these products at a lower price than expected - and also make sure to use our Sightings Database to help out fellow fans on the lookout!

I got mine for $15 a couple of weeks ago. I think it was a pricing error when they first get them in stock and then they correct the price later on. After that, it was $29.99. That's how I got some Marvel Legends figures for 10 bucks sometimes at Target and 10 for Star Wars Black series at Walmart. :-D

Really? Because when I first saw Starscream 2 weeks ago, both Walmarts I checked had him for $15. That's what he scanned up for, and he was the only G1 reissue I've seen there to date. I thought it was a good deal, but it never occurred to me that it might be an error.

And I neglected to check online because I still have the Takara "Book-Reissue" Starscream that first came with that Megatron gun, but now I'm thinking I should've bothered.

I've only seen him for $35.99

If I had the receipt still, I would have proved it. I'm guessing it was an error at the Wal-Mart I got him from? I went through self checkout and both g1 Starscream and Hot Rod both scanned in at 29.99 and it said something on the screen when scanned like "TRANSFORMER". Maybe an employee assumed that they both were the same price and entered in a generic scan in title?

Greetings Gents-

I was able to score a Starscream for myself on the shelf at Walmart in Queen Creek AZ last night. It had the absurdly long missiles but so be it. They also had plenty of Devastator sets and Hotrods. I must say it was quite surreal to walk down the toy aisle and see a bunch of G1 style boxes on the shelf. Starscream seems to be the one selling the fastest but not by much.

I was afraid that I missed out on the chance for a Bumblebee mini bot but now I'm not so sure. It doesn't look like anyone is reporting them hitting the shelves in the USA yet. Maybe I'm wrong, not sure. I'm going to be monitoring the situation because I'd really like a Bumblebee with the cartoon style face. I could get one on Ebay but all I can find are sellers from Canada and I don't want to pay beaucoup bucks for shipping. Wish me luck.

Cheers

Nice! I think these reissues are cool because of the reissues, there is at least one a lot of people kinda sorta want and will probably end up getting at some point. Devastator was my guilty purchase

Hey, If I can find a Devastator for half price (would be around $40 after taxes), Not even I would pass that up

Thanks triKlops.

I'm hitting my local Walmarts a lot but still no sign of Bumblebee or other minibots. :(

Thanks to the good folks over at Ozformers, we have word that the Transformers Reissue Minibots are now available for purchase in that country! This news comes to us with some information regarding the reissues in Australia: the minibots are the only figures that are expected to arrive in Australia, robbing them of the chance to get Starscream, Hot Rod, or Devastator most likely. The figures are currently an online exclusive to the Cotton:On clothing store, and are available there now for $14.99 Australian dollars. If you order more than $30 worth of product, you can collect them from a store for free if one is close to you. There are a few other Transformers related products available as well, so even if you only want 1 minibot, you might still be able to get a free in-store pickup.

So what do you think of this news? Are you Australians ready to buy some reissues? Let us know what you think in the comments section below, and if you do pick one up, let us know what you think!

So as it turns out there's two of those stores an hour from me.

Don't think I really need reissues though.

You guys do realise I have these figures already yeah? Image
I need to check but I think it's Gears and not Swerve that I may need to replace as the one I have isn't in the best condition.
