    The Arker has posted some images of both Battle Hook Optimus Prime Leader class and Starscream Leader class in packaging. I think we've seen Leader Starscream already, as his Bio has been revealed. Optimus Prime's Bio for this particular figure is now revealed.

    No, he is just plastic.

    Great find man. Very much looking forward to SS. I wont be getting this Prime though, I still like mine. However, I think for TF3 we should get a leader Prime similar to this mold (with articulated hands and other additional details) but with:

    1-Retractible battle mask
    2-Twin swords that unfold to hooks (I honestly thought that is what these were going to be)
    3-An ion blaster that converts from his tanks (ala Buster Prime)

    I gotta say, I'm really digging the minimalistic look of the Leader-class packaging.

    Looking at it, I think Hasbro's trying to make something that they can EASILY internationalize. As it reminds me a LOT of the TFA Voyager packaging that we got up here in Canada- the back of the box had no bio on it, and instead we got a big picture of the toy and a list of all the features (the bio was on an insert).

    This minimalistic design should be REALLY easy to make multilingual.

    Also, is that Marcelo Matere's art? Pretty sure I recognize his style.

    I especially like how Prime's face on the box looks pretty good as a battle damaged deco but the toy looks like a black splotch from a melted plastic factory accident.

    I need a second Leader Prime and might get this one to leave combined with Jetfire. I am wondering if they will put out another Jetfire deco with battle damage too. He got fubar'd in the movie pretty good before becoming an organ donor.

    Aww, just great....MORE Prime repaints/ retools.:rolleyes2 : He just has Buster's head and a new hook-like weapon?!! Meh. I already have BOTH versions (single pack and jetfire two pack) of the Buster Prime mold. So an easy pass for me... :( 

    Also, yeah, the photo shopped "battle damaged" scar on his head is nothing compared to the toy. :D 

    Leader Starscream is also a big pass. I need to save up for more ehobby exclusives... :D

    All I want to know is when will these be released? I don't know about you all, but I'm tired of the NEST line. Just give me red Rampage and lets move on. I need leader Starscream, and Prime will just be an impulse buy for me.

    When intenational means 6 langauges or more, those bios on the side are going to get a lot shorter.

    Starscream is awesome, do want. Not interested in another Leader Prime, at least until the inevitable MkIII rolls around next year.

    Hahaha, Starscreams Intellegence 4...Courage 5. Who do they think they are kidding with SS's bio? He is such a coward, that he wouldn't go into a fight unless he had an army backing him up. :lol

    anyone else think it's pretty dumb that they gave starscream a 4 for intelligence? I mean, I'd give Michael Bay and most of his bots a 4, but I thought Starscream was supposed to be pretty smart. Especially if you consider G1 Screamer was a scientist.

    Look at how Starscream has a transformation level of 4, but Prime has a 5. Looks like they actually acknowledged his difficulty instead of just giving the same number to everyone in a size class.
