Transformers: Walmart Exclusive Vintage G1 Reissue Minicars Wave 2 (Gears, Warpath)


The Autobot’s own Complainer-in-Chief, Gears, has finally got a USA reissue. As you can see, Swerve was remolded from Gears. They share many of the same parts, the changes being in their chest, head, thighs, and legs.

“What’d you do to Gears, you monster?! You turned him…nice!” – Ironhide, The Transformers, “Changing Gears”


Warpath was always a favorite of mine. I love his tank mode, and his robot mode is pretty cool too.

Overall: I complain about Hasbro a lot, but I also give them credit when they get something right. We need more G1 reissues on the pegs, but a wave of two new mini cars seems a waste. These guys sell out. Hasbro should be doing more of them.

Thanks for reading!
