Transformers G1 @ walmart

Postby mike boss » Sun Nov 04, 2018 1:13 am

Just wondering if anyone has got into these ?
I saw them and passed on them. However after watching numerous YouTube videos with people talking about how great they are, I regret that.

I think of all the ways I waste money (more sneakers, more cologne, more ball caps I'll never wear) and wonder why I didn't buy em ? (The Transformers I mean)

I saw Hot Rod was still available, sadly Starscream is sold out. But I'll keep looking.

Does anyone know if they will continue this line ? I was looking (not hard mind you) to see if a serries two was slated and if so who would be included.

I'd love Soundwave, that would be my top pick
Then of course Optimus and Megatron.

I saw in the states a YouTuber posted a few weeks back that Hot Rod had gone on clearance for under $15 US.
However I've been looking online here in Canada and no such luck yet.

Starscream isn't available online either, must have sold out.

None the less I'll keep looking to scoop up Hot Rod when he goes down in price.

I like it, I just don't like it for full price.

I'd love it if Soundwave would come out, I can remember getting Soundwave as a kid. Soooo cool!

My buddy tells me Soundwave is the next one in the line to come out!
Anyway for anyone interested, Hot Rod is clearing out at Walmart.ca for $19.
I just ordered two !
Starscream isn't available online, my buddy saw him in store this week, but he was full pop!
I'll need to keep my eyes open !

I was @ my local Walmart today and snagged the very last Hot Rod for $7.50! Score !!!
Optimus is still full price.
They had none of the little guys, no Starscream (I can not find this guy!) and no Devastator !
I'd love to find Starscream on the cheap.

I thought I would try my luck so I also went to the Pickering Walmart, but all they had was 6 Primes.
Didn't see any Hot Rod or Starscream. I didn't even Starscream online...........I'd love to find one clearing out in store.
No such luck tho.

I'm kinda on this Transformers kick as of late.
I managed to get a KO G1 Optimus Prime complete for like $50.
Looks cool as F**K!

@ Walmart he is as low as $34 CDN now....which isn't too bad !

I was able to pick up the reissue of Soundwave @ Walmart last week, I was in store @ 7am. They had 2 on the shelf and I scooped em up!
I had no issue paying the $70 for him, all be it I think it was most definitely a nostalgia tax !
I did not get the cassettes, @ $30 I think the were a rip off.

But I did pick up a Bumblebee for the asking price of $12 (slightly less) and order a KO 6 pack of Soundwave cassettes. Hopefully they arrive.
I've had some EBay issues as of late with stuff not even shipping.

I did however score a cool G1 KO Grimlock which looks really good, and I ordered a KO version of the Transformers X Ghostbusters Ecto 1........fingers crossed it actually arrives.

Just a few pics.
I'm hoping to get a couple goodies today.
I'm also waiting on a few other things to come in from Ebay.

I've really started to build a collection.
Always looking out on Kijiji for local pickups.
Even went to a local toy show in Ajax which was awesome.
I actually added up what I've put into the collection thus far, I kinda shocked myself.
I've got a few more KO things on the way in the next few weeks, including Mastepriece Soundwave, Hot Rod, and Red Alert.
I've got a KO version of Sixshot on the way, and two versions of Grimlock..one with an awesome metallic finish.
(lets hope they all show up.............I've been scammed by a few sellers so far)
