In 2018, Walmart announced a line of exclusive Transformers
figures that would reissue several Generation One Transformers
. These figures featured molds that had previously been used by Takara Tomy for its own releases including Starscream and Devastator. As a hook to make these more appealing to collectors, the packaging for these figures were based on the design and artwork found on the G1 packaging, adding a level of "classic" authenticity some previous reissues lacked.
