    Popped into my local TRU here in Aberdeen hoping to find a SS, found the only one they had (my apologies to whoever had hidden it, but I've been very keen to get him), then noticed some unopened stock boxes in the aisle. Leader Megs and Prime! That was a surprise!

    An assistant obliged, and Megs is now mine, yaay!

    They had 2 of each, left Prime for now (unbelieveably, the only TFing Prime I have is from the TFA 2-pack!) but snapped up Megs.

    I'll post some pics later, too busy having a play just now!

    Leader Prime?
    Do you mean the Roll-out Command or Voyager?

    Both Megs and Prime were in their Hasbro cardboard outers, I got an assistant to open up the Megs for me. The boxes were the same size (2 Megs in his box), and had TFA Leader Megatron, or TFA Leader Prime printed on them.

    As I didn't see the Prime, but the box said it was Leader, and Megs IS Leader, I'm presuming the same for Prime. Should've checked though, got too excited over Megs!

    You must've seen wrong, as ther is no TFA Leader Class Optimus Prime.

    Wonder if it was RO&CP?

    On checking, you're quite right.

    The outer boxes were the same barring the word Megs/Prime, I'll pop back the morn to check, don't have time tonight.

    I hope it isn't Voyager Prime. £39.99 for a voyager would be a new low for Hasbro UK.

    My local Toys R Us didn't have Prime, but they had Megatron and Bulkhead. Two to a box.

    Aargh, do want both.
    But what to have as the freebie? Another Bulkhead to do the arm switch? A second Megatron for display in box?

    YEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
    Man, I know my TRU isn't going to have these guys, and yet, I'm still going to go tomorrow. Luckily, though, when the DO show up, I'll be going with another guy who's getting them both too, so we can lump them in together and get one free, and split the cost of the rest.
