    Hear a rumor that RST Megatron is being pulled from the shelves due to his gun mode. Any truth to this?

    No, if there were a problem Hasbro would have put out a statement a couple of months ago when he first started appearing on store shelves in the UK.

    It's got the orange tip to prevent such a thing from happening.

    It's also got a total lack of distribution to prevent such a thing from happening.

    Anyone who mistakes this little Megatron for being a real gun (orange tip or not) is a complete idiot deserving repeated swift kicks to the head for their sheer stupidity. I am a proud owner of one this little guy, and he is awesome. And he is also super tiny as he is a Legends figure. I fail to see any danger this thing could pose onto anyone.

    No, it's coming out. It's just a matter of if you can get your hands on it or not.

    He may be being pulled off the shelves save for the fact that he never even hit the shelves here in America.

    I heard speculative rumors are annoying as hell and drive up pricing to benefit someone.

    So, is it impossible?

    haha maybe someone should know something about guns before talking like an expert about them. It helps to avoid pie in the face.

    I found one at Target, and there was a guy telling me that Hasbro was allegedly going to pull them off of the shelves. I figured if there was any truth to it, you guys would know.

    Agreed 1000%

    I found one at Target, hidden behind a ton of HFTD Rampages.

    Mainly Scalpers, I'll bet.

    Still looks nothing like Megatron.

    If you really found one at Target, you should report it to the News and Rumor section with your receipt as that would probably be the first US retail sightings and BIG news especially since there were rumors of it being canceled.
