 More New G1 Transformers Reissues Coming to Wal-Mart!
We reported last week that Hasbro was releasing a new Transformers G1 Soundwave at Walmart this year. Now it seems that even more figures are coming. In Demand Toys on Facebook is reporting that we also will be getting 'Warpath' and 'Gears'. Hopefully even more figures will surface as the year progresses. Check out these two new offerings below and share your thoughts.

Is anyone hunting these down? I know my Walmart had older ones (Bumlebee, and a few others) on clearance for $3.
Not sure if they will be getting new product in just so they can clearance it to $3... I can look if anyone is really in need.

I'm almost positive I have an extra loose "real G1" Gears... Glad to trade an extra to support my new blackmajor addiction, err, hobby.

It is cool that there might be success with vintage packaging.

Maybe they should experiment re-releasing G.I.Joe O-ringers from 1985-1986.

If I suddenly saw Crimson Guards, Flint, Dusty, Alpine, EELS, and Snow Serpents carded at Walmart, I would have a serious pain in my left arm and chest...and wallet. :-)

Just sayin'...

Is there anything real obvious on these reissues to keep collectors from being fooled? I know Starscream had a little Megatron gun, and that is new, so that would be obvious. But on the others, and these little ones for example?

If I was a hard core TF collector, I would already know that answer. But i'm not.

The last Transformers I got were a really "used" lot off eBay around the turn of the century. But I got G1 Prime and a dinged up Soundwave. I should dig them out.
I have one tote that is Transformers and MASK. But most of mine were pretty little ones, like the aforementioned Gears and Warpath, Cliffjumper, Windcharger, Brawn, etc.

My first ever one was Bluestreak. I still have him, but I need to glue his windshield back to the pivot point. It just rests there with him in car mode now...

There is slight difference between re issues and G1, ex constructicons originally have metal parts the re issue does not. Other bots are lighter vs heavier plastic back in G1 also paint aps vary always in different ways.
