The Toy Corner: Transformers Blaster Walmart G1 Re-Issue Coming in August

by robotGEEK

I feel bad because I always forget to give you all a heads up with some of these releases. The truth is, I get so caught up in trying to personally snag any one particular limited edition release for myself that I often forget to let others know any potential awesome news. I'll try to be better about that. For someone who continues to collect vintage and commemorative releases of vintage toys to this day, I'm almost always out of the loop. I don't know how some of y'all keep tabs on these things. I'm usually either told by a friend, or just happen to randomly come across them by accident, like with the Black Hole Walgreens Exclusives

Walmart's successful line of Generation 1 Transformers continues with this new entry, the retro cool Blaster. He wasn't a Transformer I had as a kid, but I always wanted one. I do remember having Soundwave, but even as an adult, I'll randomly look for a used vintage Blaster and either he's just too expensive, or he's missing his original gun, or his tape deck button and door are broken. But good news! This re-issue is an exact replica of the original, right down to the box art we all love so much and is currently available for pre-order on Walmart's website for $29.99. It is set to arrive August 6th.

Here are the details via Walmart's website:
