    I love you.... :lol 

    I did find 1 or 2 Megatron today at K-Mart. Didn't pick it up since I already ordered one through Wal-Mart.

    Wow, really?

    As much as I complain about the availability of toylines in my country, at least when one wave hits stores I can almost always find what I'm looking for. There were plenty of every wave 1 when it launched last friday. Luckily scalping seems to be pretty rare here, thank goodness.

    No wave 2 yet, sadly... I'm waiting for shockie!

    Sorry about that, man. :(  I got lucky and picked up Megs on Saturday. Don't give up looking - he is totally worth it!

    This worries me.

    You can always order him online. When Wal-Mart's website restocks, use their Site to Store shipping, its free and then ur only left having to pay for tax. Its like going to the store to buy it in person, except you need to wait a few days :eek:

    This is why I'm glad I got him yesterday. Keep looking he's awesome. Incidently any Spaceballs reference is pure win and so I feel you now deserve a Voyager Megatron. I'd send you mine but...well, I'm not going to but I wish you luck in finding one.

    Megatron's only 1 per case, so yeah, he could wind up being a bit tricky to find initially.

    I went at midnight to grab the figs like Megs that only came one to a case. Good thing, too, because my Walmart only got ONE case of each size class.

    There's a crap ton of them at both of my local Targets.

    I bought one actually, but returned it an hour later because I found it to be a POS. I'm sure I'm pretty alone on that one, though.

    idk if anyone had used it but i was at BK when they had the DOTM toys and i got a kids meal just to collect one of them and the little pamphlet had a coupon for Kmart stores for i think 20% off any transformers toys or clothing purchase of 30 dollars or more (if you used it too and i got that wrong please correct me) so i went the day it was to expire and found the LAST shockwave and megatron on the entire shelf, i had asked the store manager if they were getting any more megatrons in (cause i was gonna buy another one and make toxitron) but they said that was their last shipment of him i had that same problem with generations thundercracker..i had to wait THREE more months till retail got the last shipment with him in it i ended up finding THE..LAST one at target, best un-intended find ever

    Yeah, I'm surprised at how rare DOTM Voyager Megs is. Glad I got him on the first day DOTM toys came out.
