    That's....interesting.

    I would say that they accidentally replaced the picture of the first Deluxe Ratchet, but they've got a separate listing for that.

    Makes me wonder if it's the regular (Earth mode) Ratchet and they fudged up the pic.

    Interesting.

    More than likely they just mean the Earth mode figure, and used the wrong product image.

    I saw that too, but the model numbers are almost identical. Regular one is 67658211-1, new one is 67658211. only difference is the -1 and that's on the old one. I'd bet that if it were ordered, you'd get the old one.

    K-Mart item number is slightly different though (...0005 vs ...0021), so...

    How did Kmart get the photo? I might give it a try. If I got another Earth mode Ratchet, I'll just return it to Kmart.

    Well was it 100% confirmed that he was supposed to be a TRU exclusive? I know that was the common thought, but...

    Yeah not a bad idea. You'd only lose out on the shipping.

    Yeah. This isn't like the Target HA Sideswipe thing, where it costs a bunch right off the bat.

    It doesn't matter to me. I'll probably use the money and get another toy anyways. :)

    We've seen in-package pictures of both Arcee and Cybertronian Ratchet, and both had TRU Exclusive stickers on them (the first in-package pictures of them, if I'm not mistaken). If they aren't TRU exclusives, than it's really odd that they had the stickers on them. I have a hard time seeing whoever got ahold of them, putting the stickers on there themselves. Though who knows, maybe they wanted to have a little fun with us, by creating a little uproar (the people who got ahold of the in-package figures, that is).

    Remember when the Classics Prime vs Megatron two pack was a Walmart Exclusive? It had a sticker on the box I saw at the store, and I saw em elsewhere too. (Or am I remembering that wrong? o_0)

    It's a gamble, but $6 is less than I'd spend on a trip to TRU.
