    I have no interest in the majority of those. Gots to get me Screamer, though.

    So you're importing a Japan-only redeco? Why not stick to Thrust, if you don't mind me asking?

    I actually think this Prime is at vehicle-mode scale with DotM Voyager Megatron. Probably look good with the RotF one too.

    Oh wow, is that the same Jazz and Ratchet mold from the first movie again...? Haven't they been repainted to death already...? Cheesh!

    ^ Dude, they're exclusives. There are two kinds of exclusives: product that Takara made for their market that Hasbro's frantically shopping around for a seller for, or redecos that the retailer wants that fit into the theme of the main line, apparently just so that they have exclusives.

    Seeing a new mold Deluxe Prime for Walmart is actually kinda funny, although with Walmart's clout I guess it's not too unexpected.

    I'm actually assuming Hasbro will release the Air Raid, Arcee, and Vortex repaint/retools at some point too. If not, I'll either track down the Thrust repaint from someone here on the boards, or use another Deluxe class mold for him.

    Their alt-modes might be in-scale with each other, but I'm going to have the new Voyager Megs act as the opponent to the Voyager Prime I already have, and if I get this Deluxe Prime, I would want a Deluxe class Megatron for him (it's weird, I know, but for every Prime in my collection, I want a Megatron to counter him). That and I think Voyager Megs will look better size-wise in bot-mode next to the Voyager Op I've already got.

    Might not make sense to anybody else, but it makes sense to me, lol.

    Definitely not a must have with all the better versions available, but I suppose he might make a decent in-scale grappler with my Bonecrusher. Still an impulse buy at best.

    Oh, I sure hope they do, but my hopes aren't up. Nothing that doesn't pack MechTech seems to be showing up unless it's exclusive. And TakTom actually made a positive claim that Air Raid and Arcee were exclusive. Arcee, meh, she's Chromia. Air Raid though, I think I'm actually getting from BBTS or wherever.

    That's a neat collection theme you have going, actually (not one to judge, we all quirk it up). I think if I were going to get a Megatron out of a movie Deluxe that I might go with Deep Desert Brawl though.

    Sideswipe, Legends pack, and Space Case are good as mine.

    And, um, and entire fucking case of Prime?

    QUESTION: Why?

    ^ I dunno, does Walmart have other exclusive Deluxes? Aren't all the rest going to Target?

    I am actually drooling over how it will look with Mixmaster, Bonecrusher, and maybe that new Voyager Megatron.

    Really? If true, that really sucks. I was really hoping for a US release of that Arcee figure. The darker blue looks good on the mold, and the addition of the Mechtech weapon helps balance out her huge cannon arm.

    Thank you. It's one of just a few quirk's I have about my collection. Only other major one is that I like to keep my collection at an even ratio of "good guys" to "bad guys". Hasn't been too hard, but with the Autobot to Decepticon release ratio becoming more even more towards the Autobots these days, it's getting a little harder, lol.

    The reason I was going to use Air Raid, was because I think he could have made for a good looking movie-styled Megatron, but without looking like any of his on-screen appearances. Sort of a "what if I could design him myself" sort of thing.

    It's Walmart, if anything they did started to make any sense, I'm pretty sure the world would implode.

    *the following is merely my opinion and in no way designed to pick a fight*

    What, Megatron a wimpier plane than Starscream? Blasphemy! As for Brawl, Megatron hasn't been an even approximately realistic tank since the '90s. I've just always thought that the defining characteristic of Megatron was having a HUGE gun on one side. I'm not sure the Thrust mold supports one...although to be honest I still like that idea and am just having fun with you. (It also seems natural that Movie 1 Megatron's earth mode would be a plane, but I've always liked him as tank or "might as well be a tank" flying thing.)

    Hmm, I wonder if you could get a good Megatron out of Tomahawk or Terradive.

    I hope this gets release in Singapore at least Space Case, Deluxe Optimus Prime and the Legends 3-pack. I kinda wished that Jazz got his Final Battle gun.

    I'm so sold on space case. A perfect repaint for a perfect mold. I will probably pick up the deluxe optimus. Shame about the backpack on it, but i have been wanting a deluxe scaled movie prime to compliment wfc prime. The rest i could care less about.

    Truth be told, I'd be buying that Terradive mold again no matter what the deco was. I like it THAT much.

    Same here. It's like the Crosswise mold for me, only a jet.

    That was my first thought when I saw Terradive too. I hope they do 3-4 recolors eventually.
