    Anyone know if the Beast Wars 10th Anniversary Megatron and Optimus Primal are still shipping? I've seen a few Primals, but only one Megatron. Weird thing is that they were all at one store (a Target). No other stores in my town have had them in stock: They either still have the old waves clogging the shelves, or have stopped carrying the line completely. I kinda wanted another Megatron, but I really don't want to shell out extra cash for shipping, or even worse, have to bend over for eBay scalpers or online dealers.

    So I guess I'm asking if I should just be patient and keep hunting or bite the bullet and track one down online.

    Thanks.

    I'd say track one down online...the "cybertron" ones are shipping soon so it makes me think that the Beast Wars ones are not going to be, however it's just a feeling I have.

    I found two of each at my local Target last Thursday. That was the first time I've seen them in stores. All the Wal-marts near me have discontinued them. When I make it to TRU, they only ever have the first two waves.

    I'm pretty sure they're still shipping to Targets a least. If you're not in a hurry though you could wait for the Cyb versions or the repaints since they're cheaper.

    I haven't seen them either and I've been hitting the stores daily looking for them. Too bad HTS doesn't have them in stock.

    They just started hitting the Targets in my area. I finally broke down and bought both the other day. I could've waited for the Cybertron versions, but I like these colors better and the fact that you got the small Titanium like Axalon & Nemesis ships made it worth the extra $5 bucks.

    I get the impression most stores are either slacking off orders on a line that's finishing up (seems common for all TF lines) and/or are still well stocked on the first two waves. Target is the only place I've seen any Megs/Primal, and very few to boot. Wal-Marts near me don't appear interested (no space in their pasted-up stocking graph) and Toys R Us and Meijer both have tons of wave 1 and 2 toys, at least near me.

    I want a Megatron!

    off topic here but has anyone got pictures of them "loose"? I'm still undecided on whether I should get them.

    Only two places in my town carry BWX anymore. One Target (the other Target doesn't carry them) and TRU. I've seen BW Leaders at both, but never had money at the time. Now that I do, neither has them anymore. Argh. I hope one or the other restocks as they're both down to a single solitary figure (not the leaders) on the shelf. Fingers crossed. I don't really like the Cybertron color schemes as much.

    Yeah, Megatron is definitely my priority...though I want Primal since I don't have a black version of him...I only have the Universe verion of Primal.

    I found them once, and as soon as I saw them, bought them.

    Wal-Mart doesn't even carry them in my area, none.

    TRU only carries the first two waves, which are literally covered in dust by this point. (Enough to wipe with your finger.)

    Target is the only place I saw Megatron and Primal, and they also seem to do a good job of keeping low numbers on the previous waves. (1 of Waspinator, 1 of Rattrap)

    So...online, or Target is your best friend. You can wait and see the Cybertron versions, but they'll most likely be just as hard to find because we're hitting the tail end of the line.
