    Thinking about getting DOM voyager Megatron because I just love that truck mode in the movie. Is it worth getting? Think there'll ever be a leader size?

    Considering that the DotM line is dead, with no new toys being developed for it, a chance at Leader Megs in the near future is slim to nil (although stranger things have happened).

    Voyager Megs is a great figure, though.

    I genuinely think we wont see a Leader DOTM Megatron for a while....Hasbro seemed to have turned against the movie line altogether.remember ROTF was followed by NEST/HFTD and there were movie guys in RTS too.....

    DOTM has stopped cold.but I have to say I like this figure and recommend it.he looks great squaring off against Battle Blades Prime.

    Nope.

    The Voyager is a good toy though. Get him.

    Voyager is a great figure. There won't be a leader toy, but the voyager would still be worth getting even if we were. You won't be settling if you get one.

    I wouldn't expect anything new in terms of movie toys til 2014, when TF4 is slated to be released.

    I say, get Megatron if you can.

    Agreed, buy him, he is so ugly in all the right ways, very Mad Max-ish.

    Speaking of DOTM Voyager Megs, does anyone have a pic of him next to RTS deluxe Prime with Battle Tanker? Been wanting to set up a battle scene with both tankers, but I would like to see pics of both figs in bot and alt modes first.

    I love DOTM Megatron. He's not super accurate, but he looks good.

    I'm a guy who hates all movie toys with a passion.

    GET Voyager Megatron, the sculpted detail is mind blowing...sure he looks like an unpainted proto-type toy, but the engineering involved in him is staggering.

    As others have said, a new Leader Megatron is highly unlikely.

    However, Voyager Megatron is one of the BEST DotM figures IMO. He's highly articulated and pretty solid as well. A few things worth mentioning, though:

    - His Mechtech Weapon is not one of the better ones.
    - His truck mode is not to scale with deluxe cars.
    - His head is a little on the small side.

    None of these are really deal-breakers, and the last point doesn't matter if you plan on displaying him with his cloak. All things considered, he is definitely worth getting and you might even be able to find him on sale right now, since some stores are putting DOTM on clearance.

    That's not such a bad thing. The lack of paint makes him out to be the pathetic, sad leader he was in DOTM.

    Which is kinda funny, since he's actually got a pretty good amount of paint on him. Just that all that paint is simply the same colour as the surrounding plastic, so you can't tell.

    Here's one reason, among many, he's so cool: The trailer is incorperated almost fully (not countign the cannon) into his body. In fact, the back of the truck and trailer make up the legs, and it still pivots as if on a hitch.

    Yeah, and it serves to remove as many "patches" as possible, like painting a grey square the same surrounding brown.

    The Voyager isn't as great as I would have liked, but he's moderately cool.

    And no, I wouldn't try to wait for a Leader. I wish they would have done one, but it clearly isn't happening now.

    The interesting thing is that they said nothing about doing a Leader Megatron. But they were thinking about Shockwave at some point.

    That makes no sense to me, since Shockwave doesn't even transform into anything during the entire movie, as far as I can remember.

    Meanwhile, DotM Megatron had an awesome alt mode and was my favorite character design of the entire Movie Trilogy.

    Maybe they felt they had already done a Leader Megatron and it had underperformed for them. But that would be because the previous movie Megatrons transformed into an unintelligible lump of junk with the aesthetic appeal of a pile of wood shavings. DotM was the Megatron they should have done a Leader for.
