    HLJ has announced that the 'Premium' Takara version of RoTF Voyager Megatron (MR-02) "turned out to be a phantom", meaning that Takara will not release it. They are pulling it from any preorders.

    No news regarding MR-01 Jet Power Optimus yet.

    Pity I liked the shiny deco. Perhaps it might make it out as part of a premium release in 2011 or in a multi-pack.

    *looks at HLJ's banner*

    That's hella ironic. :lol 

    I just took a silver sharpie to mine, so this news is really no big deal for me.

    A bit of a shame, but I'm glad I didn't wait for it and went ahead custom painting my voyager Megatron.

    There's an upcoming scene battle back, Megatron Rising, that has a more accurate Megatron and some Legend Constructicons, so if you wanted a more accurate colour scheme that one is still an option.

    Two more Takara TFs I won't have to buy. Shame though, I liked the Optimus/Jefire pack.
