I never go to Walmarts because I have none nearby, but events conspired to bring me to one today, and DAMN. Seeing Optimus and Rattrap on the shelf brought me right back to 1996.
I never had nostalgia like that from G1 reissues, since I was too young when those originals were out to be buying toys from stores. When G1 was new, toy stores were barely a concept for me; Transformers were just something that occasionally appeared gift-wrapped in my house.
I have part of a Cybershark, wouldn't mind having a whole one.
I remember he got the Transmetal 2 treatment, too, which would go on to greater fame as Sky-byte... meaning that not only could all further iterations of Sky-byte have repaint potential as Cybershark, but this Cybershark re-release could theoretically be repainted into an organic Sky-byte, too!
But I digress. Where I was originally going with that was to say that we've had show characters who got Transmetal/2 forms that were in the show and show characters who got Transmetal/2 forms not in the show, but did we get many other non-show characters like Cybershark who also got Transmetal or other new forms?
