    First revealed back in December, it was evident that "Battle Damaged Megatron", a slight retool of wave 2 Voyager Class Megatron, would be some sort of exclusive.

    A few weeks ago, Toys"R"Us Canada added him to their catalog.

    Now Target US has followed suit, thus answering the question how the figure is going to be available in North America.

    @Black Convoy I'd consider this news, what do the mods think?

    That's great and all, but if you're going to double dip on this mold, might as well buy the first one and buy the DNA upgrade kit with the damaged head and a full set of wings, plus the new (and accurate) right arm. Same price, but one figure does it all and more.

    Awesome! I’m really glad I decided not to spring for this and pay extra money. I will gladly pick this up at retail price though.

    They actually announced this during the toy fair. One of the guys asked about the random Megatron and one of the guys at QnA said it was gonna be in mass retail before correcting himself to say it'll be a Target Exclusive.

    I’m surprised this wasn’t covered sooner. One of the team members from Hasbro was asked about this during Toy Fair and he said that it would be a mass release before correcting himself and saying that it would be a Target exclusive.

    Oh cool. I actually live near a Target. Hopefully this will end up on 75% off clearance like that Target Exclusive Beast Fire Predaking.

    Damn I should have waited. I pulled the trigger on him last month from China for $60 free shipping. Ive had him for almost a month so at least I can say I got him super early. Who knows when Target will have him ? You win some, you lose some.
