    Wal-Mart had the movie premium figures come in, and the was a Megatron fig. in an Optimus box. It was clearly a graphics error 'cause Prime face was mismatched against Megs' head shape. Could this be worth something later?

    General consensus seems to be that, unless you run into just the right collector, packaging mistakes generally end up being less valuable than a normal/correct version.

    I bought my Leader Prime for $6.00 cuz it was labeled Megatron on the box, and at a Target where I told them that it was false advertising.

    If you tried that at my store, I'd explain that I'm not the one advertising falsely, and that you could kindly take it up with the manufacturer. At which point that particular toy would be pulled from the shelf. If an employee had taken it back as a return, I'd flog them endlessly with leather straps with bits of glass and shards of metal in them...
