Should I get Leader Megs now, or wait for any chance of a premium version?

    I'm really on the fence about Megatron, he looks awesome, except for his arms. 1 oversized jointless arm and a tiny arm aren't exactly the bestest thing ever. So I wonder, do I get him now in the hopes that he could be modified, or do I wait to see for a premium? I ask because I held back on a few figures because of their decos and mold, but Premium '07 saved a few bots for me.

    One las thing, I can mod about as well as your cat can, and I worry about wasting money on a figure I might destroy. Pee Ehss, tutorials are always welcome.

    For me I have to wait for the third movie Megs. If by chance they came up with the same Mold and Articulation problems well I guess I'll give in to buy it.

    I really doubt that there's gonna be a premium version. You might as well pick him up now.

    I'm personally waiting until he:

    either comes down in sale
    Hasbro gives us a repaint that looks cool
    Hasbro gives us a premium repaint

    Since premium is unlikely, I'll wait for the other two options, which are way more likely. I feel he's an ok figure, but the alt mode looks horrible (voyager has better proportions), and the head looks a bit bad because they didn't paint the teeth..just looks weird to me.

    For a lower price or cooler paintjob, I'd buy him..so until then, waiting...

    I had my heart set on buying Leader Megs, but a few days ago I got a chance to fool around with both ROTF Megatrons at my friend's apartment. I wasn't too impressed by either. Both have problems that the other lacks. I finally decided, though it will be a few years, to wait for TF3 Megs unless ROTF Leader Megs hits the clearence rack. I'd rather hope for a definitive movie Megs then be stuck with a mediocre one. Sadly, the big guy hasn't had very good luck so far.

    I feel strange, that OP get's a figure with Masterpiece level quality, yet Megatron keeps getting bricks.

    Well Hasbro had time to correct problems with the first OP toy. Megatron is an all new design. So if he's the same in TF3, I'm sure they'll make him better. Wait until TF3. And if Megatron is different, you can always go on eBay and get TF2 Megs. I doubt he'll have a markup.

    I'd wait for a sale. My friend bought him for full price (big mistake in my book, but it's not my money), and I've fooled around with him, and frankly that cannon arm not having even one point of articulation in it kills the mold for me. I'm personaly going to go for the voyager, which is both half the usual price of a leader and has better arms.

    To be honest, the only ROTF Leader I'm interested in is Jetfire, since he's an all-new character.
