    I've seen at least one Walmart where they put some of the re-issue transformers near the front of the store in the card game and pokemon plush section.

    Ordered one of of walmart.com and it came loose in a box with no padding. Looks to be in mostly good shape, though. I seriously hate these reissues being walmart exclusives. You're lucky to find in stores not beat all to hell, if at all, and it's a gamble on shipping as to how it arrives...

    That seems like a weird place to put them. :confused:

    I think they've got them placed in a separate stand-alone TF display, too. I have no idea if said display is actually in the toy section or elsewhere...

    seeing this pic gives me flash backs being a kid in the 80s and my parents buying me Astrotrain I think at Toysrus.

    At $40 the price is still bit high for my budget but will be tempting if I see him for that same price in person.
    Still $50 on Walmarts site

    Yeap, Walmart matched store price some days ago. Not a bad price for a G1 reissue IMO but considering the trend of other reissues there are a lot of chances for a lower price.

    So far, have no issues with my boxes from the website. Thanks Primus!

    I still could use an insert tray for one of these for my Canadian G1 box I got as a kid if someone is tossing the insert by chance.

    Saw a few discounted down to $38 (from $48) but the boxes were completely thrashed on one side.

    I wasn't going to get one, but scanned one the other day at Wal-mart. Came up for $25, so I bought it.

    Yeah, I've been meaning to ask somewhere. I just didn't know what thread to ask it in. Is there any word on Blaster yet?
