Not on sale, but it is in stock:

Note that the cab is not included.

Yes, it is expensive. However, kudos to Walmart for reissuing favorite G1 Transformers. Soundwave may be coming soon as well.

These will be clearance soon. Collectors have been letting him sit protesting it being $50 without the cab. All the others got marked down even devastator set

Wow pricey. Not buying this on principle alone, greedy buggers.

Definitely not worth $50. Wait until it goes down to under $20. I was able to get G1 Hotrod for $5 and StarScream for $7.

Besides, I think the Siege or Studio 38 Optimus looks way better and both under $30. Wink

Saw 5-6 of these at my local Walmart, thought they would never sell at $50. Went back a few weeks later and only one was left! Maybe resellers?

BTW, these do include the cab, what they don't have is the trailer laugh out loud

I saw the g1 Hotrod deal, but never the StarScream. Started following these a little less than a year ago after getting my mini-sized-version-of-myself started as a budding enthusiast/collector. Now I am attempting to source Hun-Grr, Grimlock+Dinobots, Kup, Soundwave, and of course Optimus... As cheaply as possible. (kicking myself that I missed the $22 leader class Optimus at Christmas, and that my old G2 Optimus flew the coop at a yard sale... ).

Any tips for staying on top of this market and hitting deals? The wish list is getting expensive. At least we're going for all Generations/G1 general style and not the Cyberverse and others...

If you're lucky Grimlock and Inferno are also on clearance for $5

https://brickseek.com/walmart-inv...=348384109

https://brickseek.com/walmart-inv...=674435604

I got 5 of each to be used for my son's friends birthday party gifts and Christmas gifts.

If you know what you're looking for, use Brickseek's price change alerts. You can do 1 per account so just create as many email dummy accounts.

Here are the Transformers you'll most likely find on clearance at Walmart:

Good luck Wink

I had this original and it is by far the toy I miss the most from my childhood. Those red blocky things (a little different that on this version) are probably still floating around in a box somewhere. I miss you, Jetfire.

I remember the first time I saw the commercial..

Then there was that whole "Jetfire is Skyfire" confusion. Ah, lawyers...

After picking up the Starscream and Hot Rod reissue's I dug out my originals from when I was a kid. My Jetfire the tail portion is broken off unfortunately where they fold back and down sucks. I still have my original Optimus, Megatron both still intact and also have Skywarp, Thrust, Swoop still in good condition. I will never sell them.
