Vintage G1

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.
