    Hope the mini bots get sold individually at some point. Hmm. Glorious red and purple grids and metallic lettering.

    These G1 Transformers boxes are BEAUTIFUL! It just occurs to me that the box for Starscream is subtly different; the corners are square & sharp, while the G1 box corners are rounded off. That & the fact that they're bilingual.

    Gotta love how they recreated the original G1 packaging, but not 100% completely so scammers could try and sell them like that on ebay (like some people tried to do with the Takara reissues). Especially carded Bee is nice!

    As part of the \" Walmart Family \" I wish Asda in the UK would stock these so i could sneak a Devastator in with the weekly food shop

    OMG

    Is the same Devastator that Takara sold in the Encore line?

    Have all those reissues, from Takara,, but the feeling of buying a new fresh G1, like in the 80s has no price. I would buy them again.

    They are being sold individually. There was never a reissue "box set" planned. That was a misconception based on early incomplete information of Robot Kingdom offering a case (as in, Hasbro shipping case) of eight figures (three Bumblebees, two Tailgates, two Swerves and one Outback). Don't believe me? Walmart is backing me up on this!

    Bumblebee on Walmart
    Swerve on Walmart
    Outback on Walmart
    Tailgate on Walmart

    And for good measure, the other three which have been linked before:

    Hot Rod at Walmart
    Starscream at Walmart
    Devastator at Walmart

    Neat. Hope the G1 enthusiasts are happy. I know a couple who are pretty excited.

    Lol @ "don't believe me?" I just said I hoped something would happen, I didn't write it in stone that it wouldn't. Thanks for the information, though. :)  That's great to hear.

    I think they’re banking way too much on toy nostalgia with this. Sure we want to see devastator on shelves, but updated with new toy technology.

    And for $75, you'd hope it'd be cartoon accurate! :banghead:  I wouldn't mind seeing some add-on parts, too. So that he isn't a statue-combiner! :lol  If 3P can make better legs, why can't Hasbro throw in a combiner part or two? :confused: 

    $75 for what's basically a re-release... just feels lazy and sleazy to me. I like the G1 re-releases, but I wish Hasbro would consider a Disney approach, rather than an Eisner approach! :banghead:

    Have we seen any confirmation yet as to whether this set comes with the toy style or modified cartoon style head? It might still possibly have the updated head. They gave Bumblebee the new head so with Devastator at least there's a chance it could have the new head as well.

    What happened to the Megatron accessory with Starscream. His fists have been moved to cover up the spot.

    Why? Because you already have the Encore release?

    I'm thinking the sample at SDCC is a mockup, as we've seen other pictures with the Megatron gun accessory in the packaging. this one is totally different.

    I just hope the other pic isn't the mock up and Megs has been removed.
