Transformers Prime Beast Hunters Voyager Class Sharkticon Megatron is starting to hit retail! Yours truly picked this guy up at a Wal-Mart in central Oklahoma (Chickasha to be exact). If you're in the market for this figure keep your eyes peeled, he's starting to show up on shelves.

When this guy shows up your local area be sure to update our handy sightings tool, and don't forget about our regional sightings forum.

So that nice gunmetal grey/black IS the correct color? PHEW!

I just found him at Walmart tonight. I forgot it was out around now. It was a nice surprise. Arm articulation seems more limited than PRID Megatron though. Other than that, he's really cool.

Actually it's kinda brownish.

I picked this up a couple days ago but was too lazy to post a pic.

Update: Sorry, forgot to mention where. Found it at Wal-mart in Maryland. No sign of any at Target around here yet, though I found Grimwing and the newer version of Ultra Magnus there a few days earlier.

I can't wait to pick this guy up.

I realize some people think it's an ugly color scheme but I think it's legit. :CON:

I just wanna know the series of life choices Megatron made that led to him choosing a fish aeroplane as an alt mode.
I think it's a cry for help.
Poor guy.

They've got the Wreckers in my local New Hampshire Walmart on route 11 from Rochester. i already got the set from bbts...

And honestly, these are not that awesome. Their vehicle modes are nice, and their robot modes aren't too shabby, barring Impactor's stick arms. But the combined mode is a piece of JUNK! :BANG_HEAD: :evil:

What specifically are your issues with the combined mode? There's a good bit of fiddling you can do to make it considerably better. Just mess around with it, is my opinion, and you'll find some ways to make things do what you want. :)

It feels floppy, cheaply-made, I have a bad time with him standing up and the weapon makes him off-balance. I wasn't even planning on keeping him in combined mode. All five of these guys are standing on my neo-G1 shelf and that's how they'll stay.

I'll give you the cheaply made part, they definitely skimped on quality for the entire FoC deluxe line, but floppy and having balance issues? Who are you using for the legs? I've never had issues with the G2 version, it's very stable and posable. I guess it doesn't matter if you're leaving them uncombined, I'm just wondering what you're doing that it's not solid. :P

Well, I wouldn't say the entire line. Just the Combaticons (and the Wreckers, from what I've heard) and Jazz. My Ultra Magnus, Starscream, and Shockwave are all fine, quality-wise.

But, at least in the cases of the Optimus and Shockwave molds, they're still EXTREMELY tiny and thin. I love that Shockwave mold to death, but there's no defending how ridiculously small and thin he is.

Oh yes, no argument there. Ultra Magnus, despite being awesome, looks sadly pathetic on my Classics shelf.

I had it in the configuration in the instructions. Roadbuster as the left arm, Twin Twist as the right arm, Whirl as the right leg and Topspin as the left. Admittedly it was more to see how it looks. ;) I don't own the Combaticon set of this.

And do NOT get me started on the cheapness of the FOC toys. Jazz in particular will send me into RAEG! :BANG_HEAD: :BOOM: :BOOM: :evil: ;)

Well there's your problem. ;P Vortex/Whirl doesn't do a whole lot of good as a leg, I'd suggest always using Swindle/Roadbuster as a leg. I'd imagine Brawl/Twin Twist as an arm also makes him balance a little strangely due to 60% of him sticking off the side of the shoulder.

Haven't spotted Megatron yet, nor the Generations Wreckers, but the voyager wave with Sandstorm is popping up all around now...

We have new sightings for the Ruination wave of Generations Wreckers. Baha08 reported in the California Transformers Sightings page that he saw all five wreckers in a Toys'R'Us in the Yuba Bay area. Seibertronian AceMilo sent us a picture of his find with receipt. We also have sightings from fellow Seibertronians Klunk, MP-Prime and TyrannusDrakeXVIII who posted in the individual listings in our sightings section for Impactor, Roadbuster, whirl, Topspin and Twintwist.

There are many ways to report your sightings by snapping a picture and sending an email to news@seibertron.com, posting in our Sightings Forum which is organized by State/Country or in the Sightings Section organized by individual toys. Reporting your sighting helps make you an active contributor to Seibertron.com and helps our fellow members find the toys they are looking for.

I think it's cause California is closest to China. :-? I'm just not surprised that the first sightings are in CA! Same thing with the Big Lots info - never seemed to materialize in IL. :BANG_HEAD:

Just glad I picked these up from HTS, as I've been wasting too much gas chasing TF's! :roll:

EDIT: I was referring to the Wreckers - didn't realize the news was combining threads/attaching Wreckers to Sharkticon Mega thread...

I actually found ONE Mega in a Wal-Mart in Palatine, IL. Sadly, the only one, but he was accompanied by Grimwing, Ultra Magnus, and Optimus. I'm guessing that's the entire wave? Cause that's just stupid planning if they think one Megatron per Voyager case is enough. :BANG_HEAD:

I actually spotted all these guys yesterday - in New York. TRU in Times Square has them in stock.

Next time, I'll report it! #-o

I saw two of each of the five bots for Ruination at the WalMart in East Peoria, IL two days ago. Was very tempted...

Re: Wreckers

Aside from their head sculpts, these guys don't interest me. I have the Combaticons because they are the Combaticons. But I wish I didn't have them. I wouldn't get the molds again.

The biggest news here is that they're listed at $12.99. I was sure TRU had marked up the price to $14.99 by now.

I live in NY and I usually hunt in NJ. I found them at the TRU on US22 and I figured they must be common now because I NEVER find stuff early here, too many scalpers. When I saw they wanted pics, I was shocked that no one sent any. Luckily I found a whole case so I got em all.

Yeah, all the mainline deluxes have been 12.99 lately. The movie figs are STILL priced at like 17.99 which blows my mind.

Honestly kind of pissed I even spotted these things yet I've yet to see any damn Cyberverse Shockwaves.

Also I've noticed them restocking Wave 1 for FoC and the only location for Bruticus I've seen in our area has been K-Mart

Very nice! Outside of Grimlock (which I snagged a few months ago), I am personally uninterested in Hasbro's FOC figures. If they go on crazy 'buy 1 get 2 free' clearance, which may very well happen around holiday time, I'll pick up a few, just for the sake of having them. We'll see.

I live in NYC, and hunt at the various Targets and TRUs accessible by bus/subway. I'm from NJ myself, and as such, I applaud your apparent ownership of a motor vehicle :APPLAUSE:

I just saw the FOC Wreckers at Walmart in Villa Park, IL, Rt. 83. There was one compelte set, and another minus Roadbuster.

They look really great in person, better than even Seibertron's great pics. Amazing but true!
