    And it is this:

    We all know the Megatron sucks. Most people are talking about passing on him. Hell, even Remy took, like, 10 pictures of him for his gallery and called it a day. You know it's bad when even he can't make something look cool. I keep picturing shelves two months from now littered with dozens of Titanium Megatrons, clogging things up and preventing the later, better looking stuff from coming out. Have you guys seen the Star Wars Titaniums? Some of my local stores have literally dozens of Darth Vaders that have been sitting there for months, presumably keeping later waves from being ordered.

    I hate to say it, because I usually don't do this with domestic stuff, but I really think I may just preorder from online shops. I'm fearful that some of them may never show up because of that damned Megatron mold.

    Anybody got any soothing words? Am I being completely irrational here, or are you thinking the same things I'm thinking?

    The only thing that I can think to say is:

    As awful as megatron is, soundwave is thousands of times worse.

    I've just about given up on finding toys in the store at ALL anymore. bbts' pile of loot is the only way for me now. so yeah, I'd say just preorder the tits, that's what I've done with all of the 6"ers

    Finding toys in stores is damn near impossible. You want it for sure, you pre-order from an online toy shop. That's the only way.

    BBTS pile of loot FTW.

    Did someone say there's another megatron mold coming out later in the line as well, or am I just imagining things?

    As long as I can find Rodimus Prime, I don't care what else happens with the Tits.

    I'm in pretty much the same boat as you. I've got all the figures preordered through BBTS. Their "Pile of Loot" system is the best. And, hey, Megatron may be ass, but I'm still going to pick one up... considering that it's an all new design, I'm not judging it as harshly as I would an already established design.

    Maybe they should just make Titanium Megatron a HasbroToyShop.com exclusive, then they'd...oh...wait...nevermind.

    I'd suggest tricking small kids you see in TF aisles into buying them...

    "Those TTN Megatrons are the BEST!!! You'll be the coolest kid on the block!!!"

    I suggest we buy them all and throw them off the top of tall structures.

    The entertainment of this would be well worth $15.

    theyre selling pretty decently here.

    must be the generous price to size in packaging ratio.

    looks like a good thing.

    oh, soundwaves alt mode looks like ass.

    i have no problem with the megatron wwi toy i think it looks great, and isn't this what you've all been wanting for the past 3 years? and now you finally get it, and you do nothing but complain?

    with this it is a wonder why transformers is still around, hasbro should of just quit long ago, if this is the kind of thanks they get for giving us what we want.

    hasbro is used to creating the toy first, and that toy being used for the comic/show, not the other way around, designing a toy around a drawing is a lot harder then drawing a character, based off a toy.

    That Megatron is total garbage.

    It's a shame. And they really need to make a toilet titanium so all the 3"'ers can finall take that poop they're all so desperate to take.
