    So down the aisle from my walmarts repaint endcap display I saw a massive pile of Transformers Robot heroes Giftsets. Thinking my store had found a stash of the g1 set from Xmas I went to see if they were one clearance. Much to my surprise this was a brand new item. It comes in the standard half-circle box and includes a metallic Megatron and Prime, Battle damaged Jazz and Blackout, and an allspark Ratchet. Am I on crack or have we never heard of this before. Is it possible something made it to stores with out us knowing?

    It's existence has been reported before, but you're the first person I know of that's seen it. Did you get a pic??

    It was originally reported by TFormers a few months back, but they had no idea about its purpose yet.

    Obligatory :useless 

    Man, I snap pics of everything, then I do a search, and find out I'm too late. Every time. It's not like the cellphone is at home or something.

    I think from this point onward that I'll skip out on exclusive repaints unless it's a new character (Skywarp, Cliffjumper duo) or significantly different (like Hologram Mirage, and maybe this Ratchet). Seems like a safe - and less expensive - rule to follow to me.

    I saw the set yesterday........the only one worth buying is Megatron, super metalized and shiney. So I passed on it.

    I'm totally addicted to the Robot Heroes as well, so take my word on the fact they're nothing special.

    Saw them today as well.

    No pics, I'm not a cell-phone person, and don't carry my dig cam, but yeah, this set is out.

    I was a little surprised by it too
