    So, I was in the store about to purchase the Fallen Voyager figure (very nice indeed) but then I decided not to.
    I hesitated from buying this because I remember they gave, Megatron a Silver repaint when the movie was released on sale, in BestBuy.
    So, I'm hoping they will do this to The Fallen also when ROTF is released on DVD, any thoughts?

    They're already repainting The Fallen in fiery form as a Target exclusive this fall.

    just like the premiums, it was a one time only thing. Most fans that came to transformers because of the movie keep assuming that they will do the same things as the 1st movie lne

    Well, Hasbro is all about the Benjamins, so.... why not re-release a more movie accurate paint job that people will go bonkers for?
    The Fallen was a very interesting character so I will put my money on this toy as soon as I see it hit stores.
    I have seen that Red & Green paint job for him, but that is not the color I was going for, more of a Green metallic would be wonders for me.

    Isn't there going to be a new repainted Fallen in a three pack with a repainted Soundwave and Voyager Megatron?

    Maybe the Nemesis Gathering The Fallen will feature a normal colorscheme.

    As an employee of the "big blue box", I can tell you that I have no knowledge of any kind of BBY exclusive on the horizon. -Although, I was made aware of the Megatron & Ratchet via the TF fansites well before I ever heard anything about them in our store.

    At this point, I'd suspect that the Target Exclusive would be your best bet at a Fallen figure... But, things are known to surprise people from time to time, so it should never be ruled out that another store might get an exclusive of their own...

    Geez.. Why must there be so many repaints? I believe Hasbro should just put in the TFs original colours as in the movie onto the toys. That saves a lot of hassle and complaints. And if fans or buyers want different paintjobs they can do it themselves or suggest it directly to Hasbro. I think this is sensible, but sadly we get some oddly-painted TFs like the Fallen and Voyager Megatron. Yuck! ><"

    Well to give Hasbro credit when it's due - they have been rather creative in recent paint schemes. RoTF Voyager Megatron? That's how he looked lying dead at the sea bed, same goes for TFTM Voyager "Icy" Megs.

    Come to think about it, poor ol' Meg seems to be handed the short end of the stick time after time :lol 

    It could've been worse, people. Think battle damage?

    Hmmm....when you do think about it that way, those normal release colors should've been the ones that were the exclusives.

    Anyways.....wasn't there issues with people trying to obtain the Best Buy figures from the last time?

    lol can't argue with that, Deep Sea Megatron or Hibernating Fallen would've made much more sense... :lol
