Re: Walmart Exclusive G1 Astrotrain Released in Canada

Found G1 Astrotrain and Seige Astrotrain at Keswick Walmart but they had a nice display stand at the Newmarket Walmart! Sadly my wallet has seen better days

The US walmart price is fair and it's a reduced price already.
Then let astrotrain clog shelves till they reduce price.
Simple.
Exactly, I never understand what's the rush and worry for the mainline stuff. You're going to get it eventually. Why pay $70 for nostalgia.

Re: Walmart Exclusive G1 Astrotrain Released in Canada

How can you have this tiny G1 triple changer on the shelf next to Siege Leader Astrotrain and charge the same price??

G1 Astrotrain should retail @ $20.00 USD / $30.00 CDN same as a DLX/Legend/Lightning/Black Series. In this day and age that seems "fair".

If there's anything the new Siege display/standie really hammers home, it's this

Re: Walmart Exclusive G1 Astrotrain Released in Canada

We can't put a price on nostalgia, I mean we can, but who are we to judge.

Transformers The Movie was released in 1986, so was did Top Gun, but this year Maverick is coming back so I'll probably go pay to see it in theatres. Rick Astley is still popular and Backstreet Boys concerts sell out full to women in their early 40's throwing larger underwear onto the stage, in Toronto, Leafs fans continue to purchase Doug Gilmour & Wendel Clark jerseys.

With respect to G1 toys, they aren't my thing, but like anything else, if you like it, see it, buy it, help out the economy & enjoy your purchase.
