Generation One (Vintage G1)

In 2018 Walmart released an exclusive line of Generation One reissues. These were called "Vintage G1" figures and featured some of the same figures previously released by Takara in the "Encore" series.

In a surprise release for late 2019, Walmart has released a new addition to the Vintage G1 line up: Astrotrain! While his Siege counterpart begins to trickle onto shelves this release gives fans a chance to own the figure that inspired several versions of the character over the years. Like other Vintage G1 releases, the figure is in packaging that reproduces the G1 packaging.

Back in September 2019, Hasbro released a (then) Hasbro Pulse exclusive three pack featuring Gurafi, Noizu and Frenzy. This special set sold out very quickly on Hasbro Pulse. To add insult to injury, a certain number of pre-orders were cancelled due to some mysterious incident with the stock (some rumors say in package stock was damaged, other rumors say they simply ran out).
