We had a listing on Robot Kingdom for a supposed Walmart exclusive reissue of Transformers G1 Hot Rod a little while ago but no confirmation on the Walmart end. Until now. G1 Hot Rod is now listed on Walmart.com. It is not in stock and there is no price shown either, but it is proof enough that this G1 reissue is coming soon. It is listed as Transformers: Vintage G1 Autobot Hot Rod and will come with a vintage style G1 box, as we can see in the official stock images. While there is no price shown, the Robot Kingdom listing showed $30 so that is he current ballpark figure. We thank Scoty P and Steve K for bringing this listing to our attention.

Let us know if you need a(nother) G1 Hot Rod in your collection!

Yay let’s continue the trend of reissuing G1 figures that have been reissued before

The last reissue was in 2004 with the Commemorative Series. That's 14 years ago. That's quite a while so where is the problem?

It's true that some TF could be reissued like all the headmasters and such. But the lost of molds and other shenanigans may prevent that.

False, they reissued G1 Prime in, I think, 2009 for the 25th anniversary.

...How does one mistake the G1 Prime toy for the G1 Hot Rod toy?

I think they were talking about the last reissue in general. I don't know what that is but i know that :TAKARATOMY: reissued G1 Megs and Prime with a DOTM Megs and Prime around the time DOTM came out. So after 2009.

Why are we talking about G1 prime, in a thread about hot rod? Also, as someone who is not collecting 14 years ago, I am very glad to see this is getting re-issued.

There have been several G1 reissues since. Like predaking, fortress maximus, and the cone heads, just to name a few.

Oomph, I completely forgot about those. #-o

All said, I'm always on board for a good round of G1 reissues.

Hell yeah, me too. Did you ever get those Cone heads? I thought those were and excellent re-issue. I hope we get more like those.

Yep, they are still sealed and in storage, with the insecticons. I still can't believe I forgot about them.....

I will buy it, even though I don't need it. The more they sell the more likely it is we get more reissues. Also noticed he has plastic feet. I believe the TRU reissue had metal feet. Just an observation, I could care less either way. ;)^

With the unexpectedly large amount and variety of Hot Rods I have now acquired, I am now interested in getting this to add to the pile. And also to have a complete G1 figure

Going to skip this one because I have a good friend of mine that’s about to sell me his older brother’s bafflingly minty Hot Rod, but if they do more reissues like they’re doing this one, I’m game.

I have no interest unless its got some major difference from the original. Make it purple or green, or blue, or whatever and I'll buy it like gangbusters as I'm a sucker for G1 figures in funky colors, but if it's just like the original... meh. That's what ebay is for (and sealed figures from the LAST reissue are pretty much already at this price point).
