    I've got 2 Target stores within reasonable driving distance, so getting this shouldn't be a problem.

    I went hunting this past weekend and one of my targets had 5 Voyagers total for all TF lines. Every single one was the first SS Megatron. Guessing this version is going to completely clog the shelves for all future waves until Christmas clearance 2019.

    Dope. I’ve seen the BB 2-pack at Target before, so I hope I’ll be able to get this guy.

    Since Target is where I do most of my miscellaneous shopping, and I end up wandering through the toy section there once or twice a week.... this has “impulse buy to get a plastic fix” written all over it.

    You mean because they'll have a stack of these (in-store), tons of availability online, and a lot of fans will skip it? :) 

    Once or twice a week seems really... EXCESSIVE.

    I mean, Target refreshes their toy sections once or twice... A YEAR. :lol 

    Every time I go in, it's like visiting my recent past! :D  "Huh... same toys... in EXACTLY THE SAME SPOTS. :banghead: "

    Exactly. Even more convenient is that both of them are right next to each of the office buildings to which I commute for work.

    A redeco of the standard release sharing the darker gunmetal paint of this figure would be pretty cool imo

    Who's saying they didn't? The first megatron WAS accurate, as is this one. Just one was when he was resurrected, and now this one, after his butt kicking by Prime. More options is NEVER a bad thing.

    I'm more or less going on about the bland coloring of the SS ROFL Megatron.
    Plus the battle damaged head could have easily been a head swap, especially considering how simple it is to just pop it off.

    I set up an alert to let me know when he's available to order. Love that he's a target exclusive.

    I'm glad this is getting a worldwide release. I have it standing next to the original in my cabinet and this version looks much, much better.

    Thanks! I can't find a listing for him though. All I see is the regular rotf megatron when I search for "megatron" on their site.
