Courtesy of our very own Jtprime 17 we have some extra stock images of the recently revealed Vintage Transformers Beast Wars Reissues for your viewing pleasure.
Walmart have updated listings of the classic Beast Wars Optimus Primal, Cheetor, Megatron and Rattrap toys from the 90’s and they have added some extra pictures. Strangely, some images of the previous Beast Wars 10th anniversary toys are also shown. We can see the “Mutant mask” of Optimus Primal and Megatron as well as shots of the accessories.
All listings are “out of stock” at the moment, however we have no official confirmation yet that they are Walmart exclusives. Assume that is the case with Wally’s previous vintage lines. Make sure to discuss over on the 2005 Boards and let us know what you think!
Rattrap's tooling is entirely new, while based on the sculpt of the original toy. The transformation is gappy in the photo above because the gearing has slipped a notch.
The lever is not supposed to go flat, it'll always stick out a bit. Unless you just mean parallel with the back itself?
Theres little switches on each bicep. Try flipping those?
hey guys would really appreciate if someone could help me out here i recently got my copy of primal and after messing with it and trying to get the lever thing for his gorilla chest beating gimmick flat im unable to make the ratchets in his arms work properly did i just bust the gears? i cant get em to get out of the chest beating loose floppy mode
Dang. Another purple paleotrex is tempting for that price
Walmart. Vintage Megatron, Primal, Rattrap, and the Kingdom Spoiler pack are *deeply* discounted.
What site is that?
Not sure how long this will last but Megatron is $13 USD right now!

Hello, all! If anyone fancies, I have a new vid up. It's just a quickie, too!
Yep. Known issue with the gear mechanism. Has nothing to do with any degradation of being a reissue. My copy is fine. Should be an easy fix for you as above.
The figure possibly is thus precisely because it is a reissue, since the original was very firm, that proves that perhaps Hasbro sent the factory a used and half-worn mold instead of keeping the mold from 25 years ago (Since according to in an interview, said mold was lost).
I remember having a similar problem with my basic bat Optimus Primal way back in 1999…The teeth that make the spring mechanism work had skipped a tooth making it loose and gappy. I just had to gently force the right tooth back in the gear. Hope that makes sense. It is a simple problem which is hard to explain.
Whats up with this gap on Reissue Rattrap

As much as the prices are way past the point of ripoff and unacceptable, I am buying every single one of these! And this epic version of the theme is from another thread, but it’s too cool not to share!
Kinda forgot what a great looking bot mode Primal had.
The reissue is more show accurate.
I feel like since I still have a decent amount of the originals, the only reissues I'd buy would be Rampage, Depth Charge and Tigerhawk. I just recently dug out TM primal and put him on display.
Which rattrap is more show accurate? 1996 or the reissue
I like the color changes on them, especially Cheetor
