Need proof? How about pictures with a 'BEST BUY Exclusive' sticker on each package...
Metallic Ratchet and Megatron thumbnails located in first post of thread with stickers.
The going theory is that these may come out to help promote the movie's DVD sales in BEST BUY when it is released.

Oooh, you're talking about Erie, PA...aren't you?
Heh. Erie's a crap shoot. Good luck.

Best Buy has done some cool stuff like this is the past... BUT, a word of warning. There are many geeks/nerds/fan boys, whatever you want to call us that work at Best Buy, and too often they stash stuff away. I'll be surprised if each Best Buy gets more than 20 units of these exclusives in (thats 10 each guys and gals).
If my bro can get me one I MIGHT have him grab me one, but to be honest, metallic repaints dont do much for me... I never even bothered with the "metallic" Robovision Prime, and I go for COOL over exclusive anyday. If my lil bro can hook me up, maybe I'll get a few to sell off on here...no promises though.

I saw them carry Final Fantasy VIII toys back when that game was out for the PS1 in 1999.

It would be awesome if it happens. Nothing new, since that's what I think happened with the FF8 figures I was talking about after my quote from First-Aid, but good cross promotion. I just don't remember if the FF8 figures were exclusives like the Megatron and Ratchet figures would be in this case.
