    I'm a total newbie, but I did use the search function and was unable to find an answer to my question.

    I'm wondering what the availability of movie leader Megatron is. I saw him today at K-Mart but I passed up on it because K-Mart was selling it for 45 instead of 40. I haven't seen him at any other stores though and amazon.com has him listed for 50 dollars while optimus prime is listed for 40, which leads me to believe that he'll be a rare figure. Should I hurry up and just order him online from the Hasbro website? Or will the availabilty of Megatron increase?

    He wont be rare, once the stores run out of Optimus they'll get in Megatron. Most places haven't seen Megatron yet only because Optimus got to their storerooms first.

    And Megatron is wave 2, that's why he's still semi-rare.

    No real need to hurry, but that will probably be the cheapest way to get him, barring a signifcant sale elsewhere. Use code TRNS627 for free shipping.

    (This assumes you're in the U.S.)

    I found my Megatron at Kay-Bee. The only one I've seen so far.

    After bashing the design for months, I can't believe I'm saying this but he's my favorite movie toy! His alt mode looks 1000 times better if you pop his head off.
