and people would have complained about how over priced they were too if it had been the G1 figures
So Walmart will have 3 exclusive Transformers lines, reissue, red and now these. Neither of my Walmarts have put the red series out eventhough they are the only ones carrying it! Lol. I did find Blaster.
Walmart, how about you Stock your exclusive lines!
4, Reissue, RED, Retro and Netflix WFC
Dont forget the wfc Netflix line
Those are some very nice boxes IMHO. Almost makes want to become a NIB collector. Almost.
I don't really need to upgrade my TR Headmasters other than Chromedome, but it's hard to say no to those vintage style packages. It hits me right in the nostalgia whenever I see that design and the boxes with the flap at the top.
For a second I thought they meant actual G1 reissues of the headmasters, I was very excited.
Then I realized what it actually was and lost all interest.
Yeah, these boxes and the one for Gigawatt make me want to buy extra copies to keep MISB. Do I think Wal-mart is capable of delivering to me in un-smashed condition, though? Hmm....
We’re only able to purchase these as a set of four here in Europe. While one or two would have been cool for the packaging, I’m not feeling the need to drop £90/€100 now on these TR toys when there is so much stuff on the horizon that all takes priority right now for me.
Are you aware of the Walmart G1 reissue line? Why would they do a 180 and do something so awesome all of a sudden?
I would have preferred the Studio Series '86 to have this style packaging. Although I do love they did this.
Might get Hardhead. Prefer his toon face.
You make an interesting point. Would Hasbro's graphic designers be majorly pissed off if all Generations toys came in retro packaging appropriate to their original toyline?
I don't know if the graphic designers would have been happy, but I sure would have been.
Gonna be a hard no from me.
Sorry for not having the foresight to put these three comments in one post
I think Brainstorm having a mouth is going to be a turn off to American fans. These figures are great for people who wanted the Takara versions to begin with. But not so great for fans of the Rebirth. Also I dont think the G1 artwork goes well with these figures. The G1 artwork is drawn to look like a toy but not the toy in the box. They should have used TR artwork.
I already have TR Brainstorm but I’m probably going to get this one and keep it in the box.
Any chance this Mindwipe re-release will feature hard plastic? The excessive rubber parts on the original kinda spoiled it.
Anything with OG G1 and i'm a sucker for. The fact that Hasbro is reissueing these toys with the G1 package is IMO a smart move.
It pushes consumers like myself to purchase new transformers that I would never want to purchase.
I am glad that so many seem uninterested in these. Makes me hopeful I may actually find them!
