I wanted to put my opinion on how I think you could rework Siege Megatron into the greatest ER toy in existence (so far, at least.):

Invert his colors to black and purple,
Switch the treads out for wheels,
Give him his fusion cannon,
Do a shorter Prime-style knife blade,
Make his turret telescope a bit,
Add a connector to his front so that two Astrotrains (or just one in the middle), can pull him.
His alt-mode should now look like this: https://www.warhistoryonline.com/wp-con ... Modell.jpg And kaboom! What ER Megs should be.
What do you think? Would this work?

Motto: "A knife is simple, using it ain't."
It's a unique idea, for sure. How would it affect his robot mode? In tank mode, would he be immobile unless Astrotrain was there to pull him?

First of all, he's a rail gun, not a tank. Second of all, I just want the Astrotrain connector for added realism, because if Megs could self propel, it would be terrifying.

I wanted to see ER Megatron as an anti aircraft turret or Howitzer cannon. Split the legs out as Stabilizers and a ramp section that can attach to the other Base Mode Ramps. Years ago there was a fan art that basically had Megs Arms fold up over the body to form the gun system and used a waost swivel as the turret swivel. I really feel like they could be doing more to embrace the play pattern without sacrificing character design here.

Thanks! Does anyone know what the lowest price Omega Supreme went for? I remember Amazon had it at 20% off for a little bit, which would've been about $140 after tax. Did it ever go lower than that? Can't believe this thing is sold out at most places now, and more than retail where it is available.

IIRC, Amazon's lowest price was around $110.

I kick myself because my "buy it now" price was $100 or less shipped. We're in strange times, so I'm going continue to play the waiting game. Disclaimer; I'm OK with missing out.

Yeah with tru gone from the US no other store will carry it, so I’m guessing Hasbro massively scaled back production to not take such a loss on unmoving merch

I don't remember $110, I only remember that one time Amazon had him for 20% off, I think shortly before or after black Friday. That's why, when BBTS got him back in stock in late February at normal retail I jumped on it. Now a few sites still have him but goes from $170 and up.

I'm definitely preordering Scorponok. Though typically Decepticins don't sell as well, I think Hasbro is learning, and producing less, then if demand is still high ( as in the case of PotP deluxe wave 2) they can actually produce more.

But seeing the glut of Leader Shockwaves unsold, I'm sure Hasbro knows retailers will be ordering less because they don't want to lose money either.
I am very much interested in Botcon 2016 Customization Class Medix, Shattered Glass Ratchet, G2 Ratchet, and Marvel Comic Ratchet, willing to pay fair price, PM if interested in selling.

You know who is awesome? Crosshairs. The phenomenal Ironhide mold suits him perfectly and his head sculpt makes it scream “beefy badass” even more than it already does. He looks so good alongside other chunky slobberknockers like Roadbuster, Twin Twist, and Topspin that I have head canoned him into being a Wrecker.

I got mine the first weekend of December $111 shipped. that was the cheapest he got, he's hardly had many deals because he was so popular as well, he was well received.
