Unless Hasbro comes out and says this themselves then I call BS on BBTS. If this were really the case then they would have stated this already not that long after they were first shown, like last year’s SDCC when they announced that the G1 reissue Piranhacon set was a BBTS exclusive or when they stated that Animated Arcee, Ironhide and Rodimus were TRU exclusives. This is also incredibly stupid from a business standpoint as it prevents the first edition figures from getting out into the mass market. Not to mention that most kids and parents would most likely never heard of BBTS.
Besides, an insider from the site I get my links from posted a response claiming it to be false:

Not to mention that they’re out in both China and Malaysia (in great numbers).
