The poster, raltherr, states that he was able to purchase both toys although there was difficulty with Smokescreen. Apparently, he was not in the computer yet.
I found Universe Smokescreen and Dinobot in a local Wal-mart today. I didn't think they were due until March. When I brought them to the register Dinobot rang up fine. Smokescreen was not in their system. After about 45 minutes the manager rang up the Smokescreens as TFA Bumblebees. Then they pulled the remaining stock off the pegs. I'm not sure if this was a mistake with Hasbro sipping early or Wal-marts distribution. But they have been purchased by me in North Carolina. I have attached a few pics. One is in Wal-mart, the other is in my house. I didn't scan the receipt because Smokescreen wouldn't ring up anyway. And I don't want to get anybody at Wal-mart in trouble if they weren't supposed to sell them.
Smokescreen UPC: 653569376057
Dinobot UPC: 563569371007
