    i am really concerned that there isnt going to be a leader class megatron for the new dark of the moon movie, with how awesome the voyager class figure is, i was pretty pissed off that one of the leaders is fucking bumblebee....

    so what is the chance that they will make a leader megatron figure?

    probably next year. Hasbro releases like 3 leaders a year since the 2007 movie from what I remember.

    He's got a better chance of happening than just about any other major character. DOTM could easily give us five different Leaders if Starscream and Optimus from HftD and RotF get recycled once more. Megatron would be more complicated as a new mold would need to be designed, honestly though I'd be surprised if he didn't get a Leader toy down the line. He's a major character so he'll sell, the only reason Bumblebee got a Leader is because he's the most popular character in the Movie franchise and will sell at literally any size class.

    Hope it happens. He's got a really good shot i think, but we'll see. The voyager figure looks amazing, I can only imagine how he'll look at the leader scale.

    Strong chance. Hope it comes late down the line so that it's as good as Prime and Starscream are.

    We're going to be getting Bumblebee and rumor has it a Sentinel Prime in the first wave of leaders, so I'm guessing him and Prime will be in the second. I guess that way the voyagers don't shelf warm.

    Not to mention they're still doing stuff with CGI environments and characters, which is for all practical purposes the exact same thing as filming.

    I'm not buying the DOTM Megatron design unless I can get it in Leader size, so I'm hoping they do make a Leader Class to duke it out with my ROTF Leader Prime.

    That was a misconception based on the earliest photos of Voyager Ironhide. To the best of my knowledge there will not be a Leader Ironhide at this time.

    I think a leader class DotM Megatron is pretty much a given. He's gotten a leader class toy for every movie so far, and I don't see that stopping now.

    I don't think there will be a Leader Class Megatron because this time, in DOTM, Megatron was no longer a "Leader" in the movie. He wasn't one of the main characters in the movie anymore. Bumblebee was a leader class because he is Sam's best friend. And also because he survived this long. But Megatron, He was so badly damaged, and like I said, he wasn't a main character and he didn't really appear in the fighting scenes anyway. So there really might be no Leader class Megatron, but you never know, Hasbro might always decide to make us happy :)

    ...wow this topic was old....

    On topic now. I hope there is a Leader Megs and Shockwave, as there was rumored to be from a "reliable source'', which I take w/ a huge grain of salt. Still, the next wave for DOTM is Wave 5 and I think there may be a wave or two left to go, so we might see Megatron then, or in a sub-line for next year, but Hasbro said that by December, everything they have planned for DOTM characters will be out there so....maybe we will, I hope we will, and if not, Hasbro better have Dino ready to roll into production VERY soon.

    IF they do Leader Class Megatron it will not be by the holidays this year....they already have 3 Leader class figures out which is the max they do per year (since 2007) so there is no 4th. 2012, however, is a different story....he'll most probably appear in a subline along with 2 other leaders...hopefully another con and a remolded OP?
