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.
For months now fans have been told that Walmart would be releasing several G1 reissues under the banner of "Vintage G1" figures. While Walmart has posted listings these figures are not yet in stock with the giant retailer. Meanwhile, BWTF sponsor BigBadToyStore has Hot Rod in stock so I thought I'd snag one to see what fans have to expect from this line of "Vintage G1" reissues.
