    Well that's the Robot Kingdom price so you got to add $30 shipping to it :D 

    Walmart price will be lower!

    That's the point.

    Their exclusives are theirs to do with as they please. Not Robot Kingdom's.

    Cool. That wasn't my point. They get mad if another E-tailer puts up preorders for their exclusive, but they don't even bother stocking it when the release date comes around anyway? That ticks me off.

    What would't I give for a whole US G1 line reissue. Everyone. Except Megs, of course.

    I hope that everyone who wants one of these gets one. Especially me :D 

    One of my favorites as a kid he was your typical "tries to do the right thing but screws it up" character, a cliche, sure. But I was 5, the world was new and every cliche was a new and exciting way to present something. After all even the most overused cliche was once an original idea.

    Anyway, this figure will replace the one I dropped out of my window with the army parachute attached to see if it would work with him. Spoiler alert, it did not.

    Pretty well, back pack went flying. My Dad repaired it as best he could with a matchstick and that held him together. Kinda.

    Important lesson learned that day. :)

    i hope i can find one in stores! Also, really really hoping for them to release an Optimus Prime in its original g1 packaging. Man this is glorious! Hope this is hugely successful so we can get more releases.

    Nice. Guess I'll be going to Wal-Mart more often now. Hopefully more reissues are on the way. Surprised Hot Rod was chosen instead of Optimus despite the numerous reissues of him over the years.

    I have the Hasbro reissue, the Takara collection reissue, the Takara Pepsi reissue, and the 25th anniversary hasbro version of Optimus Prime. And I'd still pick up another reissue of him.

    Online's fine, but what I really want is to walk into a physical store, pick up a G1 Transformer in a G1 box, take it home, open it up, apply a bunch of stickers (badly) and have fun.

    At that point, $30 pays as much for the experience as the toy itself.

    Dear Diary, today I learned that we shouldn't drop transforming robits out of windows. Next time he might not make it. :D
