    Yeah, we've seen this before, but I think the Wal-Mart pre-order (and the price, maybe) is new.

    Exclusive items are made to entice the retailer to buy and sell the entire line. What's the point of giving wal-mart an exclusive Kre-o set if they are not going to buy/sell any other Kre-o stuff. Not only that but it was announced months ago that Kre-o AOE would be an exclusive to TRU. Isn't this a slap in the face to TRU?

    "Thanks TRU for all your support in being the only retailer to buy the entire Kre-o line from the start so to show are thanks we are going to give an exclusive Kre-o set to one of your competitors."-sincerely, Hasbro

    Not really news, sorry... It's been on robotkingdom for weeks and was first shown in a booklet that also revealed the Autobot 5-Packs and Elite Optimus Prime a month or two ago, which showed the packaging or at least the picture used for the packaging.

    This is a strange case with this set...

    The Kre-O line is TRU exclusive, but isn't the use and sale of products involving Stinger wal-mart exclusive?

    EDIT: Actually, wasn't this set originally called the "Stinger replicator set"? They could've changed the name to "Decepticon Replicator set" in order to sell it at TRU without breaking the "Stinger is walmart exclusive" contract.

    That being said though, the "walmart exclusive" one-step stinger was found at Target a few days ago...
