    Awesome, but Best Buy exclusive? I want that Megatron since I didn't pick up the regular Voyager one.

    Shiny. So conflicted on whether or not to pick up another Ratchet or not...

    Cool, especially since I can't swing a dead cat in this town without hitting three Best Buys.

    Weird place for a TF exclusive. Movie DVD tie-in I bet, buy the DVD/HD-DVD here and get $5 off the TF kinda thing.

    It's being sold from Hong Kong. Could be a KO. 90% of the time stuff from there is fake.

    Um, no. It's official product that's been shown before. The Best Buy sticker is new.

    I've heard rumors about this before. But wasn't sure if it was just speculation or not.

    Best Buy??? I dont know..its possible like Foster said for the DVD. But Best Buy?? Wouldnt Wally World be better?? Well its already getting the animated prequel so they may have wanted to spread out the exclusives.

    I've no idea if Best Buy is in Asia, but Hong Kong is where most of Hasbro's prototypes come from when they show up on eBay.

    If they actually are coming to the US, I really hope they aren't "with purchase of Transformers on DVD". For starters, I want Ratchet and Megatron. Also, unless the Wal-Mart exclusive animated prequel is outstanding and not just the comic with some animations added, I'm getting Target's exclusive prequel comic featuring the Decepticons (including Wreckage).

    Besides, when Revenge of the Sith came out (theaters or DVD, I forget which), Best Buy's exclusive Unleashed Darth Vader was available to buy without a pre-requisite purchase.

    So Best Buy has had exclusive toys? Cool, I bet they come out October 16 alongside the DVD. And I also hope they aren't tied to a purchase of the movie. But come on, knock a few bucks off for me if I buy the DVD and Megatron!

    Well, at least they aren't TRU exclusives that are drastically overpriced for no reason. I might get Megatron. I'll have to see him in person before making a final decision.

    I am glad it is not Circuit City. Never shop there. Bunch of bastards laid me off after nine years, because I was too good at my job. I'll buy doubles of both, just so BB can make some money.

    guess I'll have to stick with leader megs. The only best buy in my area is 20 miles away in the busiest and most insanely slow intersection around town. I am never going back to best buy.

    I'm getting rescue ratchet anyway and also have the normal green one.

    No big loss, at least I'll have money for leader brawl.
