    I've really been wanting a Megatron for my Dark Of The Moon collection other than my Cyberverse but i was hoping for a Leader at Comic-Con but didnt see one so should i just wait till they announce a Leader or buy a Voyager and Keep him or just buy a Voyager and keep it in packaging till they release a Leader then return it cause maybe they wont release a leader then it will be hard to find Megatron. So what should i do?

    Buy the Voyager for now. It's a good toy from what I've seen and read. I've also wanted to buy it a number of times and I don't even collect movie-related figures.

    Purchase the Leader when it's available. If the latter ends up being even better, then sell the voyager to make back some of the money you originally spent. I'd still keep it. I don't mind having multiple interations of the same character even if it's within the same line.

    Same advice I offered regarding DOTM Shockwave.

    Do get the voyager, you won't be dissapointed. I'm actually planning on picking up another one for customization purposes.

    Do you know why u should buy voyager meg?
    1st, because the scale fits with deluxe Optimus n Voyager Sentinel, even with ROTF Vygr Starscream...[​IMG]
    2nd, because he's a triple changer:
    Robot Mode:
    [​IMG]
    Truck Mode:
    [​IMG]
    and the 3rd one, ARTILLERY MODE:
    [​IMG]
    3rd, because he is THE BEST movieverse Megatron toy so far, unless the dotm leader class rumor come true...

    Yeah I really wish there was a Leader one, but that's ONLY because I bought the Voyager toy and fell in love with this design. Seeing it in the movie helped, but the Voyager toy won me over. It's literally the first time I've liked a Movie-verse Megatron design, andI think it'll actually end up being one of my favorite incarnations of Megatron across the board.

    Now if only it had bugs-eating-his-brain mech-tek action, it'd be perfect.

    If they do announce a leader Megatron it probably wouldn't be until Toyfair or Botcon next year. If they don't announce one I think finding a voyager Megs around then could be pretty tough.

    A new leader is unlikely to be out until 2012...

    Same here. I needed a Megatron for my movie collection and without a Leader on the horizion I ended up picking up the Voyager simply to have a Megatron. Ended up being one of the better movie figures I've gotten in a while, not only because it's a Megatron who actually looks like a Transformer and has two working arms this time, but he's actualy got a legit fusion cannon on his arm that has some cool mech-tech that locks, and the cloak is pretty cool too. It helps hide that rediculously small head, which frankly outside of ball-jointed wrists (which I know would be impossible for this figure) is the only lacking part of the toy. The Alt. mode even has an articulated trailer, which is quite impressive considering the trailer is nothing but his legs and remain attached to the truck cab, but DAMN does it sell the alt. mode for not being a robot.

    Sounds like a great figure (haven't got him yet).

    I'm more interested in the pics on previous page - I didn't realise there was a Voyager Sentinel released! Must've missed the news...

    I'm hoping for a Leader too, but I got the Voyager anyway. It's a good figure. I'll be displaying it with other smaller versions of characters, like HFTD BB Optimus, Voyager Starscream, and The Fallen.

    I have mostly voyager movie figures, including teh RotF Voyager.

    Pros and Cons. Pros are the mold is really good and the best movie Megs from a deisgn perspecitive. Cons are that is is really small compared to the rest of the movie voyagers and has some QC issues around the black grill shoulder joint.

    Possibility is great but then you get the pygmy head. Lots of compromises here but all in all a good toy.

    The alt mode is AMAZING. The bot mode is disappointing in light of the design we got for the film. I'm holding onto my RotF Voyager as well, that is an imposing robot.

    We probably won't get Leader Megatron until 2012, if we get one at all. I would advise you to go ahead and get Voyager Megatron. He's a great figure and is the best movie Megatron so far, IMO.
