    As are the “leaks” posts to be completely frank. Everyone and their aunt is some anonymous Hasbro leaker from Vietnam apparently

    No image? No link? RUMOR. RUMOR. RUMOR

    I'm just trying to look at it from different points of view. In all fairness, we don't know 100% it isn't Magnus. It's not likely, given all the evidence, but it's not 100% deconfirmed.

    Just because it's a leak does not mean there's no proof. Leakers can prove to be trustworthy. I was only wondering if it came from a trusted source

    I never saw that debunked if it was. So yeah, that was probably it.

    No, it's confirmed. We've already seen the Paleo that confirms the initial leak was correct and it's Megs.

    I don't think we can rely on the veracity of text on the box when it's from a company that spelled "Skywalker" wrong two different ways on the same box.

    I would give up man. I've been trying to explain the phrasing for an hour on the HP thread and I just can't waste my time anymore. People keep confusing my quoting the phrasing and comparing Siege Megs being listed as a Leader to Prime and UM and keep giving examples about them really being Voyagers with parts and see? It's the same!

    The correct interpretation is that the description has a typo and should reference a Voyager Class and a Fossilizer (which doesn't indicate Class since those are all over, we just happen to know it's the Deluxe), and extras. Everyone keeps jumping on saying the parts add up to a Leader and that makes sense but it doesn't because the price point is then higher. Just take it for the typo it is. Someone in editorial messed up. The rest of the description (17 steps, vehicle mode) point to yet another Siege Megs but people are misunderstanding the question you and I are asking.

    That would suck. I literally go to my local Walmart only once a month.

    Give Walmart a hand! Only 84 minutes after there countdown hit zero and most of the items are easily available on their website without direct links...

    Now if only they would add netflix deluxes...

    I don\'t know if anyone has noticed yet, but the seeker is up. If so, sorry, but I\'m not scrolling through 100 posts of is it Megatron or not to check while waiting in the car to pick up my kids. :)

    What a whirlwind of emotion. I ordered the Vintage Beast Wars figures on Pulse the moment they were available to non-Pulse members and canceled my Walmart preorders. Now I only need to rely on Walmart for the Sparkless Seeker and Ghostbusters stuff. A partial win is still a win... but at what cost?

    A good point, but I'm not giving up on the theory until we know for sure what's in the box. It could be a typo, but there's also a chance that it's not. We'll just have to wait and see

    My original thought had been that it was BW Megatron and purple Paleotrex for the alt mode scan scene. But apparently Netflix is going to scan regular Megs into BW Megs so *shrug* I don't even know.
