    I think the price could drop to 25 eventually.

    I finally found one locally three weeks ago. Nothing else since. Still going to hang onto the receipt, you never know.

    No sign of him here yet. We're sitting on Soundwaves if anybody's interested.

    My Northwest Indiana Walmart had at least five Astrotrains on the shelf when I was in there last week.

    Smaller Walmarts actually seem to have better stock of the reissues for whatever reason, at least in my experience.

    I love the packaging, it's what all reissues should have. Vintage packaging. But I have all of these toys (minus Astrotrain) several times over already.

    Ok thanks. I was hoping Soundwave would be on clearance by now, and was hoping for the cassettes to be available. Guess I'll keep looking/waiting.

    whats odd, since April, new in box Astrotrain prices on Ebay have averaged $30 shipped
    And was able to get one for about $27shipped but my box had a razor blade cut on one side

    So, if you guys cant find him on clearance in the store, I would check Ebay and maybe get him for around $25 or less

    went to my local Walmart store and they had Astrotrain on clearance for $25
    At $25 its a great price or close to retail if it was the 80s

    and love these reissues so much, I enjoy seeing them on store shelves, its like being a kid in the 80s
    Not to mention my Walmart recently had 80s reissued Ghostbusters and reissued Star Wars figures
    I think its super cool

    All of the walmarts in my area have him discounted to $25, according to brickseek. And they got soundwave down to $13.

    He's been shelf-sitting for a while now. I'm considering getting one for myself. I'd like an A-train with a classic train mode.
