    There are two Leader Primes listed, but what if one is another without Electronics, orientated more towards collectors with less kibble and more accuracy, but maybe not as fun to play with?

    I'm really disappointed with all the movie Primes thus far. The only one I really want is the Revoltech, and I've even gone off the Voyager because of the inaccurate chest.

    It's a sad state of affairs indeed.

    I'm very sure that it will be a repaint. I'd be very surprised if there were to be two Leader Optimus molds in the same line. I for one am not disappointed by the Primes of the movie line. I already have the Protoform, who's awesome. Voyager looks ok - his main strengths seem to be posability, his guns, and the disappearing driver gimmick. Leader Prime looks very amazing to me. It's very detailed, doesn't cheat on the transformation, very articulated, and has some cool automorph stuff going on. Even the FAB looks highly posable and fun to play with, and the legends version has a great truck mode and interesting transformation.

    As for how they should do the repaint, I wouldn't mind an Ultra Magnus. However, I don't really expect it - we've yet to get a Leader-size Magnus repaint. That said, I'm not sure what direction they'll take.

    Yeah, Leader Prime is a piece crap even though its engineering easily surpasses the one found on all previous Leader Primes. Gee, some people are just begging for stuff to complain about.

    Your hoping for an all new figure. I doubt a repaint is going to solve all of that.

    Not a chance that it's a retooled version of the mold to remove electronics and get rid of kibble. A toy with less electronics is less likely to sell well based on its on-shelf specs, and would require more money to make due to retooling costs.

    No, it most definitely wont be a new mold, and I'm quite happy with that. What I really hope is that it wont be an awesome paint deco that I HAVE to own that isn't revealed until after I pick the original up :p

    However well he's engineered, he's still very stout and kibblish compared to the actual Movie Prime by a long shot. I don't see how you can think nobody can take issue with it. It's a charming figure but it's also very messy.

    Plus, "All previous" Leader Primes means the UT Primes. Come on, that's not exactly though competition.

    I've decided long ago that I'm never getting an Ultra Magnus repaint, I think it's a lame cop-out, and I don't want to support it. However, if they come out with a kickin' black and red repaint, I would get it.

    Unless the repaint is chromed out the whazoo I'll have no interests in it. If the Voyager gets repainted to a 'new' character however I might be all over it.
