    G1 box/style never seems to look outdated. Til this day, all the G1 box looks great. If I didn't own a G1 Blaster and an AFA version, I would certainly purchase one. Hopefully, more reissue to come.

    Yea, I thought about that as well, but G1 boxes suck me in. Thought about selling the perceptor/blaster pack instead, but damn it, all those extra accessories.

    I checked my order online and it says delayed, but I haven't received any email updates whatsoever.

    Crossing my fingers.

    Maybe this guy will be the start of more reasonable prices on these G1 reissues. I like seeing them in-store and I love the boxes...but I hate seeing them shelfwarm. I just watched a shelf full of Astrotrains go for $9 each. If they are making enough money on this guy at $30 a pop, maybe future releases will be more reasonable as well. Unless, of course, they just felt Blaster is not a strong enough seller to command a higher price. I suppose time will tell. I hope a reissue Skywarp happens. That is the only one of the original 3 seekers I don’t have in G1 flavor.

    Did everyone get an email saying that it was delayed due to “high demand” or is it just me?

    It makes you wonder about the point of a preorder...then again, Walmart isn’t known for offering preorders in good faith. Perhaps we should all be ready for ongoing disappointment with the upcoming Netflix products, etc.

    Your question assumes we all receive the obligatory notification from Walmart. I have never received an email from Walmart. I have to go to their site for any information. not received any notice of delays with my order.

    Any chance an admin or mod can roll this thread into the main one: Hasbro Reissue Vote 2020: G1 Blaster

    Just cancelled mine. Was supposed to come yesterday and TODAY I get a delayed notification in my order status. I’ll just check the store and if I can’t find it there then oh well.

    According to Walmart support 30s ago..."Thank you for staying connected. As I had a check on your order which was supposed to be shipped on 8.6.2020 due to inventory issues, the expected ship date for the Transformers Toys Vintage G1 Autobot Blaster Collectible Action Figure has been postponed to 9.4.2020."

    Haha. It seems hard to believe G1 Blaster went a whole year in G1 before getting tapes. I hope we don't have to wait that long this time.

    This is good news, imo. I haven't seen any reviews of this on Youtube and there aren't any in-hand auctions on ebay so it doesn't seem like this thing has made it too many places yet. Waiting to Sept works for me.

    At least you got an email telling you of a delay... I was expecting mine last week according to my pre-order. But the delivery date came and went. I only found out about the delay after checking here. I went to check my account and there it was... "delayed"... No reason. No communication... Nothing.

    I can wait. But if Walmart does what they usually do and send the box through their automatic package bashing machine before sending it to me, I'm going to keep making them exchange it at their shipping expense till they get it right. The G1 box is just as important as the toy inside.

    For this reason alone I am hoping he shows up in stores and not just online. If the box isn't pristine then I don't want it.
