    It seems that G1 Vintage Reissue Astrotrain has been found at a Walmart in Farmingdale, NY.

    Hard to tell from the photo, but it looks like it rang up at $49.67.

    If legit, credit goes to Michael Aragona Jr. of Facebook.

    While i\'m thankful that Astrotrain has been reissued in proper colors , But who the hell is gonna pay 50$ for this? I\'d only pay 30$ at most

    Funny that this is out at the same time as the $50 Leader Class Astrotrain.

    Believe it or not $50! I think that's a bit much. I would think $30 to $35 would be ideal.
