    Saw him as well as FAB BB, FAB Blackout. and FAB Frenzy at a Target yesterday (only got Frenzy, he's the only FAB I intend to get because it is the only way to get a transformable movie Frenzy).

    Cost me a bit more than I had thought it would though, same as a deluxe...I was hoping to pay a bit less for them >_>

    Its amazing how like, there is no "perfect" movie Transformer. Each rendition from Unleashed, to FAB, the titaniums, through the different mainline price points all render some particular robot's detail a little better than the other versions.

    One character's toy might have a beautiful looking head, the other might be better articulated, another will capture some arm detail better, and the last version might fully represent its weapons. Or take the two Optimus Prime's, between the leader and Voyager they each seemed to embody about a %50 accuracy to the movie model, and if you mixed and matched the way they capture the details you'd have the perfect Prime. Or like, FAB Prime has accurate legs and chest, almost moreso than the other two, but he doesn't have the rest of the details (particularly in the arms) as the bigger Primes.

    Am I making sense?

    What this comes from is the fact that I'm buying toys I thought i'd never by like FAB's and Titaniums because they might have the best headsculpt or weapons, or particular detail I loved in the movie art, etc..

    QFT

    Except for like...Frenzy and Scorps since like, they aren't in any other size class and actually are fairly accurate (save Frenzy's kibble).

    Nice find! Frontpaged.

    Seems like he is a part of the same wave as Frenzy, so presumably he'll be showing up in the same place as him. Wonder if this one will even make it to the UK?

    It looks like Megatron tripped and fell on his face.

    But it's growing on me.

    I didn't realize this was rare. I found him and Frenzy in New Mexico (Albuquerque) yesterday. A whole ton of them.

    I'm more than happy with my leader Megatron, but still I'm not a big of FABs. I might pick up Frenzy however, since I don't think he'll come out as anything else (a Voyager one that was basically movie accurate would be super sweet, but it won't happen).
