Thanks, noted, but doesn't look like there is a place for them. Mind you, 3 of ours are in upheaval a bit as they are all transitioning to supercentres

At least if you see the blank tag then you know it came and gone. The toy dept person told me that there were no restocks coming according to the system so potentially it could be a one off shipment. Just speculation of course, so take it for what it is.

Re: Walmart G1 reissue Starscream is out

$50 for a Generation 1 Starscream, 4 of these are almost as much as Predaking, wowzers.

How much was Starscream when he was first released back in 1984 out of curiosity? Yes, I know we do have to factor in cost of living increases.

I remember in the 1980's the lowest price I saw for a seeker was $13.99 plus tax. Typical price might have been $17.99. I sure there's a Sears catalogue or Consumers Distributing catalogue image available online somewhere.

Yes. I love the nostalgic packaging, but I already have the seekers from the previous Commemorative Series reissue; I will likely skip this current reIssue, especially at $50 a pop. Maybe with a good sale or coupon...

I do agree that $50 is a little steep considering the conehead 3 pack went on sale for $40 at one point.
I think $30-$40 would hit the sweet spot as far as pricing. Maybe they'll shelfwarm at $50
