    No it won't. All leaders share the same DCPI number which is what target uses to track inventory.

    I don't get why they reused the rotf molds chest for the new megs, he doesn't look like a remold of the rotf figure, is it even the same part?

    Ah ok. It's just a bad habit to have as other toys do not. Plus he seems pretty easy to find elsewhere (at least in my area).

    I'd recommend Hasbro Pulse or even Walmart. Pulse for convenience and Walmart because you most likely won't have to deal with these stupid street dates.

    Back on topic, I really like how Mixmaster turned out. The other half of these boys can't come soon enough.

    Shockwave looks even better in hand.

    With each passing wave, Studio Series keeps getting better. I hope we do get every Bayformer.

    Is Studio Series ROTF battle damaged Megatron rare or something? I was considering picking him up, and just tried finding him and no one has him in stock for retail prices.

    Didn't he just get released not too long ago?

    I don't know about the States, but he's super plentiful at Toys R Us here in Canada. Most stores have a dozen or more.

    My two cents on the new Megatron:
    1. Great alt mode! I like how compressed and compact it is. For a vehicle the size of Brawl's he seems to grow quite a lot.
    2. Love the transformation. It's quite *blocky* :lol 
    3. The legs look better and sleeker than the CGI renders suggest. They seem a bit big in terms of proportions though, just like DOTM.
    4. Not that bothered by the inaccurate torso, but I wouldn't mind a DNA kit to replace it with something more accurate.
    5. Despite being less accurate to his source material than his base tooling, 07 Megatron improves on ROTF Megatron's engineering drastically. For starters, his sides are no longer hollow and I assume he's lost the popping parts that plagued ROTF Megs.
    6. Silver paint, really? I know TonTon got a prototype/factory leak but I hope it'll carry over with the widespread release.
    In all, I'd say he's the best Voyager of the three Megatrons. Followed by ROTF and (lastly) DOTM.

    It seems to me that to allocate enough budget money for the silver paint on Megatron, Hasbro had to cut down on paint apps.

    Not realising Megatron's size and just how much plastic they had to slath in silver, they went all in and ended up only having enough left for his eyes :D 

    Not that I'm complaining but Megs is so blindingly silver he's practically immune to monochrome:

    I’m good with the paint he has honestly. Color wise he looks far better than ROTF and DOTM. Although ROTF battle damaged still looks very good

    While that suggestion works, you can possibly get in serious trouble if they see you scan one item and put another in your bag.

    Awesome to see he’s getting all the wave 8 figures now and not just the deluxes. Really hoping he posts some reviews for the two constructicons soon!
    You’re not alone there. I can say that he definitely looks good, but for some reason I’m personally off-put by him. The paint is excellent, and the engineering is awesome, but I think between the wrong chest, baggy jeans and his thicker proportions, he ends up looking awkward as a result. I might’ve gotten the new 2007 one if I didn’t already have the ROTF megatron, but since I prefer the latter’s proportions and whatnot I’ll personally be passing on him.

    That silver does look delicious though, can’t lie about that. ;)

    Got this dude out last night. Preparing to possibly sell him in favor of the SS.

    I was considering selling mine as well, but the new ss seems to have pretty much have nuked the market for him, so to me it's not even worth selling the guy.
