    So Im trying to complete my Animated collection and to do that I need Lugnut, Swoop and Megatron. I'm kind of a stickler for getting screen accurate figures as well as getting scale as close as possible. (Which yes...i know is impossible to be in scale to anything with Animated Lugnut). However with my hunt this late into the animated lines run...I am in need of advice. I havn't found ANY leader megatrons here in southern cal, just MANY voyager cybertron modes. Now I display my figures in Bot mode so the alt mode isnt that big of a deal to me really...so should I just suck it up and grab a voyager class cybertron megatron? or hold out and maybe just eventually order a leader class? Opinions would be appreciated.

    Nice work, shouldnt be too hard to find Swoop. I think they are still floating around in random places here although I havent checked in the last couple weeks (not much I want out right now). I just wish I had picked up a Shaddow Megs when they were on clearance for when I set up my master collection.

    If you get hung out on Swoop, I can do a little searching around here (Washington State).

    This may sound like gloating, it isn't, it's just a rumination on supply bottlenecks around the world. (And I'm not digging at Hasbro, these things happen.)

    Literally, in West London, the only stuff left is Leader Megs and dlx Swoop discounted to half-price. (And leader Bulkhead, and a glut of Blazing Lockdowns.)

    Yet we've never seen Sunstorm, (purple or normal) Shockwave, Samurai Prowl, Waspinator, Wreck-Gar...

    Haha everyone said Samurai Prowl was going to be the hardest to find. I was able to nab one very easy with about 7 remaining on the pegs...although since then I havn't seen him since.

    Hold out and get Leader Megs. Best Megatron figure ever, IMO.

    Leader Megs should be here in about 3 days. Thanks all for the advice. And the shelf warmers where I am are Sentinal prime and oil slick

    Ebay:
    TRU.com is currently selling Leader Animated Megatron for 39.99, for anyone who is interested. I bit last week. He and Shockwave go great together.
