Forbidden Batman toy at Walmart

A Batman toy has a notice reading *DO NOT PUBLISH*. This will probably disappear soon, so click on it while you can. Batman rides a dinosaur called (a?) CybeRex, that shoots flying discs out of its exoskeleton. There is a choking hazard notice: "Small parts. Not suitable for children under 3 years."
Maybe Do Not Publish means something else? So, Walmart puts the toy and the notice on its website.

Get exciting play right out of the package with the gargantuan CybeRex and Batman action figures! As seen in the upcoming Batman Unlimited Made-for-Video animated movie, the beast features colorful, iconic details, five points of articulation for major action and offensive attack and an awesome transformation: just squeeze the trigger on his tail and a disk launcher, disguised as exoskeleton, slides up and forward! His neck lowers and his jaw opens as Batman slides up with it to take aim. Pull the trigger behind his seat and the disk launcher fires in quick succession! Villains don't stand a chance. When you bring them down, lock them up in the CybeRex belly jail. The streets of Gotham City are safe again! Colors and decorations may vary.
Put villains in the CybeRex belly jail? Hey, they stole that idea from Return of the Jedi.

The Tauntaun wasn't a jail and it wasn't even bred/designed to hold a life form within it. Han Solo just had to come up with a plan before his friend died.

I'm betting the *Do Not Publish* is more to do with the fact that the information was created before the video's release and was not final copy.

Here is Target's page for the toy which has a similar description:

Target's page even mentions the belly jail.

Not the tauntaun; the CybeRex is like the sarlacc, but without the digesting.

EDIT: Or maybe the ending of the Tex Avery cartoon Jerky Turkey (1945).
