According to sources on the Allspark, it appears that the metallic RATCHET and MEGATRON repaints will be BEST BUY exclusives.

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.

First exclusives at Target. 100 mile roundtrip. Now they might be at Best Buy? At least the good thing is it's in the same plaza as that Target. :P That and I don't like my Voy Megatron so I'll be saving on that.

Best Buy? Man, I would've never guessed that one. Anyone know when they're coming out? With the DVD I presume? Whenever that is. I REALLY want that Megatron.

Me like that Ratchet very much. I know the mold sucks, and looks next to nothing like the movie model, but at least the new metallic colours will look good, especially since I've passed on every movie Ratchet figure so far, and don't have any rendition of that character in my movie collection yet.

Congrats TF! Once again you can be found outside of a toystore! It's like he 80's all over again!

Best Buy actually had some exclusive "Legend Class" figures when the Transformers Video game came out. You got one free with a preorder... I used to work for Best Buy (lil bro still does) so its no surprise that my local store dropped the ball and ended up with a ton left over. My lil bro (29yo) picked up the a few that were left for a penny each.

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.
