    I heard a rumor that there is going to be a 4th Leader Class. If there is what would you want it to be? I really hope for a Leader Class Blackout, since he is coming back in the second movie.

    I wouldnt mind Soundwave he deserves better than a single deluxe. Blackout would be cool too but eh id rather have Soundwave

    Every character got at least 2 completely new molds last time. Megatron's getting at least 4 completely new molds all on his own this time out.

    I don't think it's out of the question at all.

    I know but I dont think SS in both voyager which is already pretty damn accurate and leader would sell very well itd basically be nothing more than a larger voyager class

    Megatron & Prime & BB cant be compared they sell like hot cakes cause there really big characters. not saying SS isnt but hes not Prime or Megatron level

    How would you know? Compare it to Leader Megs and Voayger Megs. Completely different figures. Prime and Megs may be big names, but if they were going to do another Leader class that wasn't an Autobot, I'd be Starscream.

    Oops, not an option.

    I actually voted No, mainly because the only one I'd be interested in is Starscream, and the Voyager version we're already getting fits nicely with the other Voyagers like Prime and Megatron. A Leader version would just be ruined with more light/sound gimmicks.

    If Hasbro would be willing to make another Leader class figure, I'd rather they just put those funds into more original sculpts of game/comic book tie-ins. I want a triple-changing game version of Shockwave, dammit.

    im not sayin it wouldnt sell im just sayin I cant see what would need such an improvement with him over the voyager mold which from what ive seen is damn near perfect to the on screen appearance (aside from his color and pointyness)

    but it would be cool to see him in leader I just think Soundwave or Blackout deserves it more. that and the possible fear of them ruining the look with gimmicks (Megatron im looking at you)

    I've said this a billion times, but I hope they make a Leader Class Blackout. Though I wouldn't mind a Leader Class Screamer or Soundwave.

    Blackout. The Voyager class figure from the first movie was so tiny (relative to the character's size) and the head sculpt just looked terrible (not to mention the annoyance of his faulty auto-morph chest). He had a very substantial role (for a Decepticon) in the first film, and is clearly seen battling Prime (whom he is clearly far larger than) in the trailers for ROTF. Starscream already has a new mold (that looks fantastic) and even though it's a Voyager, Blackout should clearly be larger than him any which way you look at it (height or bulk, vehicle mode or robot mode; an MH-53 is just a hell of a lot bigger than an F-22). Plus, with Blackout's bulk it would be much easier to work in the gimmicks (which seem pretty much mandatory on figures this size) than it would be on just about anybody else (not to mention they'd actually make sense; he's shown that he has pop-out weapons in the first film, used a transformation soundbyte on screen, and has flashy weapons like his EMP to justify light effects).
    When his defining characteristic was his size in the first film, it doesn't make sense that his only main line figure stands eye to eye with your average deluxe (hell, his bio started right off with claiming he was the biggest Decepticon).
    Soundwave could change my opinion on this, as I don't know what his role will really be, but so far Blackout would make far more sense as the "Leader class Air Force type figure" we're rumored to get. He really deserves a proper update, just like Starscream already got.

    Starscream would be interesting, but I honestly would prefer either Soundwave, Blackout, or one of the Constructicons get a Leader class figure. Really the only hint we have so far is that it's "some air force thing" (S250 said it here). Which, imo instantly rules out the Fallen, and possibly even Soundwave, unless he gets an Earth alt-mode that has something to do with the air force. I can't see the Fallen altering his look just for a disquise, but I can see Soundwave turning into something to do with the air force. Maybe one of their satellites or something (makes sense to me). It could realistically be a Jetfire repaint for all we really know. It does seem more likely than a fourth Leader mold does, imo, anyways. Voted for Blackout in the poll, as I would absolutely love to see a Leader class copter-bot, and he could use the size upgrade, tbh. Soundwave comes in at a close second for me, with Long Haul in third, and Demolishor in fourth, though I think I'll be happy enough with their Voyager class figures, and the other Long Haul figures I plan on getting :D

    Soundwave!

    If we support it, then the dream of a Leader Soundwave firing Deluxe Ravage can come closer to reality...

    If that's what we're going on, I'd like to point out that the MH-53 was (until 2008 or somesuch) used by the United States Air Force.
