TFW2005 has shared an exciting report today, revealing that Wal-Mart will be carrying a series of "Vintage" Beast Wars figures! Previously the "Vintage" line was reserved as a title for the G1 reissues put out in G1 styled packaging at Wal-Mart as exclusive items. If this line follows suit, could we be looking at re-releases of original Beast Wars figures in "vintage" Beast Wars packaging?
In a surprise afternoon reveal, Hasbro has opened up orders for a surprise Transmutate figure! Based on the character who appeared in the Beast Wars episode "Transmutate", the character made a huge impression on fans over the years even though she only appeared in one episode of the television show.
