Dino Pavlopoulos recently posted on the Seibertron.com Facebook page that he found Transformers Combiner Wars Megatron at a Walmart in Beloit, Wisconson. Even though this isn't a first retail sighting, due to popularity of this figure we thought we would share this sighting as it does show that the Megatrons are showing up at more than one retailer. If you are on the hunt for Megatron, it's time to start hitting your local Walmarts.

I still cant decide if I want these or not. If I was a little kid that played with my toys I would be all over that G1 megatron. But as an adult who collects figures to display by scale, leader class is pointless to me. This toy should have been voyager class. More units would have been sold. Leader class figures warm the shelves cause parents are cheap as hell. More than once I had to bite my tounge in the toy aisle when a mom starts takling to her son about his allowance or how much he wont have next week if he buys what he wants. Anyways, ill have to pass by walmart and see the figure in hand. Im leaning on buying the armada version because thats a character thats not going to get done in a proper scale by any company. But G1 Megatron....meh. I own Hegemon. Maybe if he looks cool enough ill buy him.

I shouldve added as well, that it is confirmed that retailers are only receiving a 2 figure case at a time, a case consisting of one of each Armada and G1 Megatron. My daughter was previously on the hunt for me, was told at a toys r us location of a fight between two collectors over G1 Megs just 30 minutes prior to her arrival.

Yay. I now have both. I found Armada Megs in Peoria, Illinois last week. I stopped in Pontiac, Illinois, off I55 on my way to Chicago and just snagged G1 Megs today 3.7.15 at 10:40 am central time :grin: . Armada is awesome in both modes but G1 will remain in bot mode. Yes confirmed only two to a case 1of each. I imagine G1 won't make it into wave 2 cases unless Thundercracker is 2 to a case like Jetfire. Happy Hunting.

~reluctantyouth~ :BOT:

A piece of potentially actual news from the Transformers exhibit at The Children's Museum of Indianapolis concerns the bot within the bot that is Ultra Magnus, according to the IDW characterisation: Minimus Ambus! Site owner Seibertron was able to take a couple of images of the tiny loadbearer's prototype shots in both robot and vehicle mode, plus the transformation sequence - check them out below!

Why does that thought make you sick?
Wheelie could be kinda slick;
The irony of be'ng a hulk
When Wheelie gets some added bulk.

Awwe, he's got a little Hot Rod wing in the back of his car mode.Forget Wheelie, he could be redone as Hot Rodimus for Star Convoy!

Or a Bumblebee. His vehicle mode does remind me of the RID Bumblebee.

Another thing too, I'm getting a Cybertron Safeguard vibe from this figure. :BANG_HEAD: Is it normal?

UM getting better and better. He's on my most wanted Christmas list.

Too bad character wise in the IDW comics, he's long gone. From what I hear, the latest is just as good (the way he tortured Tailgate with history :lol: ) but will the "original" ever return? Sure it's now just a suit but, I'm kind of attached to the original "old friend" of Optimus.

I'm hoping to get leader Megatron soon. I like how he's in scale with MP10 Megatron

Dino=me ;)

Saw an associate put out Armada and G1 Megatron in Burlington Wi, Wal-Mart this morning. So hopefully you guys on the hunt for him get a chance to snatch him up. He's an out standing looking figure and looks great next to my MP's and Leader Jetfire. Very, very pleased with this figure.

I don't think there's too much chance of that happening. From what people were saying at Toy Fair he's pretty tiny, like a Micromaster or Minicon. They wouldn't be able to sell the Minimus mold on its own as Wheelie. If/when they do another Wheelie I'm sure it'll be a Legends figure.

I really like what James Roberts has done with Ultra Magnus. It's a nice spin on the "robot inside another robot" thing that UM has always had going, and which the original cartoon and comic saw fit to ignore.

Although the original Ultra Magnus is apparently long dead, the current UM still fulfills the original's role. He may not be the same Magnus that knew Optimus in the early days of the war, but from all accounts he has been playing the role longer than anyone else. So, Minimus Ambus is still the "Ultra Magnus" that Optimus has known the longest.

I wonder if Optimus even knows they're not the same Ultra Magnus
