    The last time Walmart held a "Collector Con," half of the pre-orders ended up being cancelled and fans just ended up pissed off. These events are a joke.

    It’ll be beyond cool to be able to walk into a Walmart and see these on shelves again. As a kid I always wanted to get Rattrap but never saw him in stores. Now I can!

    People often forget just what the Takara Rattrap looked like. The bronze paint was a hideous match to the toy and globbed on rather than actually painted nicely. That was cheap.


    “Umpteen times?” You mean twice for Cheetor and zero for Rattrap?

    Those are not updated colours because I have the anniversary prime and Megatron and they look the same as the show these ones are toy colours

    I would Love a 4th season to TFA. All so hasbro still needs to put out a TFA Omega Supreme. Hasbro will make a Ark for Kingdom They can still do a TFA Omega Supreme.

    I mean, these are still updated, it's just kinda halfway. Megatron's helmet and shade of purple are the easiest giveaways, the original was closer to gray on both.

    I believe he was the size class down, like in Kingdom. It's a weird choice to do it this way, I'm not really sure why they're priced the same.

    Wow. You hate stuff. Aren't you cool and edgy.

    I'd buy two of those....one to mess with and one to hang next to my carded G1 Bumblebee. (My first Transformer + my first Beast Wars Transformers.)

    Can I say yes since they only reissue the molds they've already re-released several times over, and they're just not very good toys?

    Bummer, was really hoping it was Transmetals so we could get Megatron.

    Probably because that would introduce another price point.

    Rattrap was a Basic. The basics all had auto transforming gimmicks that year like the Machine Wars basics.

    Cheetor was a Deluxe. His first release was part of a wave one refresh, so his rock card variant was especially hard to find.

    I need Rattrap, hopefully the price point isn't ridiculous. I have the original one broken somewhere.

    Wow. These look great. I had the originals but sold them off when 10th anniversary came out (but I still have an original Rattrap). I wish I had room for these in box. I will buy Transmetals if they get rereleased since most of mine are flaking.

    That was a rhetorical question intended for the person I was quoting, since they have expressed such a passionate dislike for the Beast Wars reissues and the Buzzworthy reissues.

    I doubt that's why considering the amount of different price points Vintage G1 had (iirc it was $12, $20, $25, $30, $40, $50, and $70, and some of those price points only had 1 or 2 toys).
