    Walmart should flood the market with these.  That way scalpers can\'t buy them all up and charge 3x the retail price on them.

    So I have heard over the years. But wouldn't it be great if they decided to remedy the situation? At this point, you'd think the fervour for the so-called 'lost molds' would have easily justified TakTom to go recreate them, imagine the frenzy that new Dinobots would create! Literally would be the story of the decade, were it to happen.

    Not a single Hot Rod at any of my nearest 3 super WM.

    Is there an actual release date for these figures? How does one know?

    Please don't make me ask an "associate"...

    I tried to use the chat feature on Walmart.com. I gave her the item number and basically had no idea about when it will be released.

    Past the initial sale, Walmart doesn't care what happens to them. They got their money for it.

    I initially read this without seeing "getting" and thought you were kind of weird.

    I totally forgot about Hot rod being released, which is great cause Hot rod sucks, but I definitely want to pick up a Starscream. I don't collect G1 figures but because of Maz I want to pick up a couple to sticker and display in their box.

    it's a fair cop, but I meant for myself/my collection.

    I don't wanna have reissues. Okay, I have the reissue Tracks because it's the only toy I sold off that I missed having, and I got one version of the various Soundwave reissues because it was really the Soundblaster mold & therefore different.

    then again I'm prob'ly a hypocrite given how many different copies of Robotech I have.

    Walmart needs to quit. I wont be able to resist buying them all in original packaging.

    Which is why Hasbro and TRU failed on the commemoratives.

    Wonder why Starscream still has the bloated missiles while the recent Seeker Squadron Thrust got away with the original sized ones?!

    Based on all those in the thread who report already having these figures (even duplicates) and STILL wanting a copy, I see it being done

    Actually, reading recent comments, I'm beginning to get the idea it's not so much the toys people are wanting, it's the packaging. I feel like somebody at Hasbro is also realizing this and slapping their forehead pretty hard...

    I was wondering too. I don't really want the long missiles, but I really want that box!

    He's shown up on some store shelves but he's not a universal thing. From what I understand he's more of an online thing.
