    I think I might get several of these. You know, to give to the kids of my fiancee's friends when they come over, and wanna play with my toys.

    I just bought the G1 version one of my local Walmarts. Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
    Looks nice and I like the box, but for something called "Metals Die Cast" stamped in big letters on top of the box, it sure is skimpy on the die cast.

    $6.97

    UPC on receipt is 080131024078 but doesn't seem to show anything on brickseek.

    maybe its wate of time all you need to do is walk in store find it shelf there is price, same with shopping online type in product name there it is.

    upc is only good for people who work in retail store that sells these products see if there in stock and how many they have in stock thats all code does

    Note, Target has them too (three generations worth) but they are in the "Pop Culture" section, usually behind the movies & music section.

    Hey bro nice find i looked for these the other day but i thought they were 1/24 scale. I probably was looking but just in wrong spot. Were they hung up on pegs? What scale are they bro? 1/38? I already have yue original The Last Knight versions. I dig metal Diecast cars and so does my 13 year old son. :D  Thanks for sharing

    Totally looking for this next time I'm at Walmart.

    For all those 'but it doesn't transform' people, look at the bottom. That's Prime bitches. Very simple stand on end transformation but his robot mode is there. Boom.

    2 scales both bigger than hot wheels. The pictures are of the 1/32 scale, the bigger more traditional model car 1/24 scale is the other scale

    How about some actual real world measurements? 3" or 4" is easy to understand. 1/32 really means nothing if you don't know what the thing would be in the real world. I know a truck is big but I can't tell you how many feet long it is to then try to math that bitch down to 1/32.
