    I've been meaning to ask. Why are they using that Movie 1 Voyager Megatron? Anyone know?

    Wait, wasn't the Fallen's fiery repaint supposed to be in this box? Don't tell me they're selling that separately! :/

    I don't think Blue Soundwave is gonna be enough to move this set.

    That Megs looks nothing like the one Hasbro had in the display booth, shame. Soundwave looks somewhat different too, ah well. Was passing on this anyway.

    Burning Fallen is a Target exclusive.

    The "Fire" Fallen is a Target Exclusive.

    EDIT: NVM, Dinobot Nuva beat me to it. :)

    Interesting. If it had the new Voyager Megs mold with a similar deco, had a more accurate paint job on the Fallen, and wasn't a Walshit exclusive, I would have more interest in this set. As it is, I'll probably just get the new Voyager Megs, repaint it myself, get the Target Exclusive "Burning" Fallen, painting some parts of him too, and just not get Soundwave at all (haven't even seen him in-person yet).

    Wait wait wait....I'm confused....It was said at Botcon that this would be a Walmart exclusive, yet this boxed version of it has a TRU exclusive sticker on it....

    Edit: It's odd... the more I look at Megs in this set, the better he looks. There's just something about his deco that looks really nice. If this is a TRU exclusive instead of Walshit, I may attempt to get it. I'd repaint the Fallen, but at least I would then have a Megatron figure, a Fallen figure, and a Soundwave figure. Though I have a feeling the price may stop me, lol. On a side note, it'd be kinda interesting if someone could figure out how to kitbash TF1 Voyager Megs to have a sort of cross between his look in the first movie, and look in RotF. I'm slowly coming up with more reasons to buy this set, lol.

    They repainted him. You can see its more grayish then blue. A lot closer to the premium but not quite so much.

    We knew about this set before Botcon based on TRU computer listings and employee information, totally TRU. Walmart is getting Sideways VS Blowpipe (Dropkick repaint)

    Nope, new run of the same mold, different colors.

    Agreed. They should've just sold the repainted Soundwave by himself.

    I'd get the Soundwave redeco if it was sold seperately, but not if I have to buy an unchanged Fallen and a nearly-unchanged TF1 Megatron as well.

    Okay... repaint of the original Movie Megatron that I didn't like enough to get even when it had its absolutely gorgeous Premium repaint, and this is nowhere near that level.

    Completely unaltered Fallen, who I already have.

    And Soundwave repainted in G1-esque colors, even though the mold really isn't suited to a G1 repaint (I'd much have a premium silver paint of him)

    Not seeing a lot to entice me here.
