I'm also hoping that was the reason for for Dinobot's price, but given the price of the new MP+ Shockwave over the original MP Shockwave I'm doubting BW Megatron will be cheap.

Remember MP+ Shockwave is a TTMall exclusive, so the price is artificially inflated.

The other thing is that I imagine this release will have a much smaller run and the bean-counters at TT have already counted on MP-29+ having a much smaller market appeal.

Actually what will be interesting is if Hasbro does an MP T-Wrecks out of this to commemorate Beast Machines.

Finally! BW Megatron! Can't wait to see the alt-mode. I wonder if the rubber duck accessory will be included.

Bot mode is great but he is very panelly in dino mode.
I love the size and while it might be different to the cartoon it does make scale sense considering the difference sizes in the animals they turn into.
