    The update states that Unleashed Bumblebee will have an exclusive pack-in at Kmart, which is the IDW Movie Prequel #1 with a new cover. The article implies that Unleashed Bumblebee will be a general release, with the Kmart one being an exclusive, limited run collector's edition.

    So, good news for those who just wanted the Unleashed figures, bad news for anyone who wants to be a completist.

    Also, official photography:

    TRU has these, without the comic, but they're out there. Pretty cool but they just sit there.

    It's definitely not a Kmart exclusive item. I've already seen this at my local toy shop, along with a slew of other TF movie toys. Seems like a waste of money to me, even if there's an exclusive version that comes with a comic book.

    It IS an exclusive... only the K-mart version comes with the comic, apparently.

    No redeco means I will pass on this one, though.

    Yeah, I just saw them at Walmart yesterday so definitely not exclusive. But I'm amused that K-MArt is reduced to a bonus comic rather than whole new packs like Battle in a Box that they used to get.

    And not to mention the Prequel issue #1 is the same one they gave away on Free Comic Book Day. Different cover, but still.

    Umm...I like the car mode art on the comic.....but that's about it. Even if I did want it, there isn't any Kmarts in Texas anymore....or at least not in the majority of Texas.

    They've jacked up the price of Real Gears to $9.19, when they are retailed at $6.99 everywhere else.
