The Walmart exclusive Transformers G1 Reissues of Devastator and the Minibots are currently available for preorder on Walmart.com. While these are showing up at brick and mortar in Canada, all except for Hot Rod, we have yet to get a brick and mortar sighting in the US.

For those outside the US, Robot Kingdom still has a few of the G1 reissues in stock, click here to find those links.

Here is hoping all those who want these toys get them. Also, just for info, if any of you have any inclination towards getting Outback, do not hesitate if you see him. He is short packed in order for there to be three Bumblebees, which are also in incredibly high demand due to the remolded cartoon face never before released in the US.

Here are the links:

Good lookin' out y'all! ;)^

Thanks for the heads up and the links. I got what I needed most. Tailgate and Swerve. Pre-ordered Starscream last time he popped up and those were the most important for me. Holding steady on Devy, may wait to see if he pops up in-store.

Is good that everyone loves 'em G1 bricks! :APPLAUSE:

Please continue to support them! (I wonder why Pipes was not included)

Btw, are there plans to release the G1 minibots from season 1 (aka TFC#12)? I've got 'em all but it'd be good for the other collectors to have them too!

I placed a preorder for all the G1 reissues, but have only received Hot Rod on Friday. Has anyone else received the other figures? Has Walmart given any indication when these figures will be shipped?

My Starscream is set to arrive later next week, and I think the two minibots I ordered are scheduled to come first week of Sept.

Was just talking to Itscramtastic. His Starscream was set to arrive yesterday, but he was notified by Walmart of a delay.

I remember either shipping or arriving August 30th for the Minibots.

Yeah. I got the email Saturday that my Starscream didn’t come in Friday (did the site to store option). I’m wondering if I had ordered it normally would it have arrived?! Drat.

Also, hey Cobotron and carytheone, what’s up?! :lol:

Something that I'm truly glad that (at least for Bumblebee), the G1 reissue minibots have PAINT APS contrary to the G1 originals. This set them appart and make worth purchasing.

Good point Kanrabat, I’m definitely hoping to find that Bumblebee in store.

You're about the only person I've heard say something negative about the toon accurate head. Would you prefer a toy accurate version? Not wanting to start a fight, just curious :D

Yes, I'd prefer the battle mask. I do like the extra paint though.

Edit: personal preference and display reasons.

To follow up on thd shipping times for the minibots, here's the email I received from Uncle Wally.

20180819_093159.png


The question is, how accurate is that? I can't get a ship time from their app and haven't checked via their website. Nor have I received a tracking email.

So grains of salt all around.

Your email is the same first email I got from Walmart. So who knows when it will arrive.

Pretty sure I made mention of wishing Bee didn't come with that toon face. Would love to simply have a reproduction of the original toy.



Well, that response feels like it reads nice and diplomatic without any of the nerd rage negativity I actually feel towards that derpy pudge face. :lol:

Edit: What up Cramburger!

These editions and changes arent as new as what some may think. These are mainly the same toys released by Takara a while ago, which had the similar better paint apps. And it was there that we saw the new Bumblebee face for the first time. So not only are you getting a toon accurate face now, you guys are finally able to own a saught after Takara product without having to spend 150$ https://www.ebay.com/p/Takara-Transform ... /135051925

So I think thats why there is very little aprehension to the face, everyone wants Takara exclusives for dirt cheap.

Technically this reissue is the fourth release of that face, after Transformers Collection, e-Hobby "Bug Bite" and Encore. Not as rare as one might think, but not easily accessible regardless. I'm tempted to be honest, I love small trinkets :x
