We had reported a few days ago that the new Walmart Exclusives G1 Minibots reissues were already available in Canada. Lucky Canadian fans have had the opportunity to grab and share some in-hands images of these toys.
Thanks to Twitter user @CF_TheNewSam, we have some images and a video of Bumblebeee, Tailgate and Swerve. Some interesting details we could point out. First, the back of Bumblebee’s blister shows an Officially Licensed Volkswagen logo now (between the Hasbro and Transformers: Authentics logos). It sure took some time for the G1 toy to be recognized by Volkswagen, but it was worth the wait.
Then, Tailgate and Swerve feature heat-sensitive rubsigns. According to @CF_TheNewSam video, they have some differences compared to the original G1 rubsigns. They are made in silver and soft material (similar to the rest of the stickers), and they reveal a red Autobot insignia rather than the multi-color style of the original ones.
You can check out the images and the video after the jump. Then, you can share your thoughts on the 2005 Boards!
