I read at JTA that this will be a Walmart Fall 2012 release

Is it a Walmart release on an online one? BBTS has this set up for preorder.

So confused....

Maybe it's a brick and mortar exclusive for Walmart, but available through multiple online channels?

I agree, it's confusing. They can't seem to get out of their own way with this line anymore.

This is a straight repack of Wolffe, right?

If there were any differences, I'd say that that Hasbro's image looks to have a grayer look to the deco whereas the carded figure was more blue. I guess we'll only know when these actually hit retail.

Ah, I see.  Thanks.  I was hoping that this newer Wolffe might be getting a slight upgrade in the knee department, kind of like 2013 Rex.  But this pic over at BBTS kinda makes it look like that this will not be the case:

Maybe Walmart pulled the plug on these gift set exclusives and Hasbro is dishing them out to online retailers?

in case others haven't seen yet, the Spiderman set and the Transformer set are also on HTS and also state "online only"

So much for getting one of these mint for my carded collection. Now I just have to hope whatever warehouse drone pulls my item from the shelf happens to select a decent one. Ugh.

They got it backwards - the last one last year that was all repacks should have been the online exclusive. This is one I would have gladly gone into the store for, even Walmart.

At least they had the sense to put it up on HTS this time, unlike the Mando Shuttle which they could have easily sold off rather than shipping them to Mexico. But then again HTS doesn't seem to know how to pack and ship things without stuff getting all dinged up in transit. Or even before transit. So there's that.

Also mean no chance to nab a bunch of these in February at sweet clearance prices.

Did I just pay 20$ a piece for two clone repaints and 2 chew toys for my dog???

But it still feels good to buy something new!

Man, Hasbro can't even get Wal-Mart to commit to an exclusive anymore. The smell of death is on this line as a whole. Sad, really, but a mess of Hasbro's own making.

Kind of disappointing set now that it's an online exclusive and shipping could hit you if you can't team up.   :-\  Add in the Plo and $30 just seems pricey, especially considering how much cooler the K-mart 2-packs ultimately are, for the same price.
