KidDynamite of TFW2005 has found the Decepticon Sneak Attack pack in stores at a Wal-Mart in Evansville, IN. Many have thought this set to be an online-only exclusive to Wal-Mart.com, but it now appears to be making it's way into Wal-Mart retail stores. The set includes Cliffjumper, Skywarp, Mirage (clear hologram),and Optimus Prime and Megatron, both with shiny metal finish.

I really really hope this set will come out in Canada, I wonder if there is a way I can find out...

If not, I'll ask someone from the US to pick me up a set and have it shipped to me, that's why it's fun to have american friends on the Seibertron staff...

How come only 2 'Cons for 3 'Bots is what I'm wondering. Push come to shove they could've repainted Screamer again for Thundercracker.

Still though, I Must Have It.

If it's an exclusive, then hopefully it'll make it to my Wal-Mart. I'm skeptical because this particular store still hasn't got ANY Robot Heroes, and they don't carry the Star Wars Galactic Heroes.

I smell conspiracyyyyy...

Thundercracker is already part of wave 2.
The only guy I want from this set is Skywarp.

Thats a good Idea though, the 3 seekers together would be pretty sweet. 8)
I just hope hasbro creates a RH version of the new movie screamer.

I'm a little upset they've started RH's in the Movie line. I was really hoping for a Robot Hero Blaster. I mean come on! Blaster's only had 5 different figures and that's only if you count the Twincast reissue as a different figure than the original and count the Binaltech Asterisk Broadblaster as Blaster. What kind of bull is that?!

I DEMAND A ROBOT HERO BLASTER!

Don't worry, there are a ton more G1 figures they can do after they do the 8 or so movie ones. I doubt they will make RH's of movie video game characters.

Don't worry dude, you'll get it cause all the RHs are from the transformers movie(1986) and he was in it.

A side note: not all of the Heroes so far were in the '86 movie. Mirage kinda throws a wrench into that theory.

I know this is a Box Store Exclusive (TM) and as such has a few constraints put upon it...

...but honestly? Part of why I haven't picked it up yet is the lack of variety. I mean, don't get me wrong--Robot Heroes, in its weird cutesy way, is the TF line I'm most excited about--but I was kinda hoping when I first saw "Decepticon Sneak Attack" that it'd be a set including Reflector (maybe just one), Brawn, Laserbeak, Rumble, and maybe Hound, not just three altered-but-already-released characters and two unique repaints. I'm still kinda up in the air about it...

Also: how much do the Supermetal Finish leaders differ from the regular ones found in the two-packs? Are they just shinier, or are there other differences in patterns and paint applications?

I was wondering when it would be out, I knew it was not an online exclusive, but it was looking like it would be by default.

I wish they would have done this with Rumble and Ravage, perhaps this will be the norm now and there will be no more driving to 50 different stores.

Also, the site to store is cheaper then buying it in the store you do not have to pay state sales tax on the item, since you paid online already.

I am hoping they make as many various characters as they did from Star Wars, and hopefully we will get all bots and no humans, the bots look nice but the humans from the Star Wars sets look horrible compared to the aliens, the hands are wayy too big and they are puffy.

I hope we get Ratbat, it would be cute, but ultimately the best would still be one piece Combiners, big or small.

They actually look a lot better. I picked up a set late last night, and they are much better. Megs actually looks like he is silver. The Mirage I could have done without. If it were not for the fact that you would miss out on Ravage and Ultra Magnus, I would suggest picking up this set and not the 2 packs that Prime and Meg are in.

i hope these go on for a while. my only gripe is that the figures with the same mold(seekers, bb and cliffjumper) have the same poses. is it too much to ask that different characters have even slightly different poses? it just seems a little half-assed to me.
