    Just wondering if you guys think they will release one in the Prime line?
    It would scale quite well with FE Prime and most other figures

    Having a Weaponizer Megatron will scale nicely with the FE Optimus but then there's the idea of how his transformation goes. I mena we already saw how it effected Optimus and Bumblebee. If they can manage to pull it off well with Megatron that'll be great.

    No, Decepticons don't sell well according to the fired Hasbro employee in my head. He also told me that you can expect to see Supreme Bulkhead and Smokescreen at a Target near you!

    But seriously though, with the new, "Lets leave Decepticons stuck as Voyagers and Deluxes rule", it won't happen.

    I sure hope so, but, as stated above, it's unlikely.

    Doubt it, Hasbro thinks big cons don't sell with the kiddes.

    Weaponizers aren't leader class.

    and I don't know how he'd transform while keeping that gimmick.

    I just know I need a good TFP Megatron that isn't one of the ones released yet. Ugh, that Voyager doesn't work for me.

    I'd love to see one, Weaponizer Prime seems like a fun toy and the benefit of this size is that it's bigger than the voyagers. Honestly, I was disappointed in voyager megs, I thought the Cyberverse figure was a much better Megatron figure. So a Weaponizer would be nice.

    Unless Weaponizers sell well, doubt it.

    And i doubt they're selling well.

    Honestly, a Weaponizer Megatron, if done decently, would completely rekindle my interest in the Prime line.

    I'd like to see one. Weaponiser Prime is a really fun guy (Bumblebee... isn't that great) so yeah, going by averages he could be decent.

    As a concept, i think Weaponizers have (had?) potential.......The exectution, (imo) leaves a lot to be desired.


    This is why i think Hasbro's estimation of what's "decent" would fall well short of where a lot of members here would place it.

    :(  Methinks it'll never happen. The DOTM didn't to leader class cons because they don't sell well. That being said I have been happy to see the high level of decepticon characters released in the line.

    If they release Weaponizer Megatron, I would buy him and Prime. If not, then Prime will stay on the shelf.

    It might happen eventually. Hopefully so.

    Weaponizers seem to be selling decently from what i've seen - a local store had 4 on the shelf last Thursday, and only had one lonely Optimus left when I popped in yesterday.

    It's already on the shelves. He is just in disguise as Bumblebee.
