ya highly doubt there is a metal and a plastic one...
I bought my Droid X at Walmart physical store off plan for 499. At the time I saw them at Best Buy for $569.
The best thing about Walmart is there tends to be less sales hassle buying off plan and they sometimes have stock of costlier devices since your average Walmart shopper is likely not buying $500 smartphones.
Not all Walmarts have the same carriers or selections.

When I was at Walmart the other day I they had the plastic display model out. The one with no working screen and a plastic shell. Its the same one the Verizon Wireless store had so you could hold it, drop it, and shove it in your pocket to see if you like the size before you bought the model. Where the actually models were tethered to the display at the Verizon store.
But for $88 I did not see. It was $199 with the 2 yr contract like it was at Verizon.
Walmart does sell some seemingly identical products as other retailers for a lower price, when in fact the item is of lesser quaility. The manufacture may use cheaper materials in order to keep costs down.
I don't know if they do this with phones. The Walmart version of a product can usually be differentiated by the part number. There is usually a letter different than the higher quality product. I believe the normal part number for the Droid X is DROIDXVZW. If the phone at Walmart has the same part number, it should be the same as getting it any where else.
