    So in the movie the dinobots are huge ass robots that tower even over prime so I had a thought
    why didnt hasbro/takara make all the dinobots leader class?

    Given how rare non-Optimus Leaders are, that wasn't going to happen anyways. As cool as it would've been.

    I'm far more perplexed as to why they removed Cyberverse.

    I think it's more about selling toys than movie accuracy - the price point is just too high as a leader for most moms and dads

    I do think they are releasing one more leader Dino (at least)

    They only release 3 leader molds per line I think. Maybe 4 max?

    I'd love a leader sized Scorn though.

    I think it would be cool if they made Jumbo sized versions of the dinobot molds. Like the upscaled cyberverse.

    Even though i'm already collecting the current size, I'd love a Slug figure that's twice as large.

    Maybe 1 leader and 3 voyagers. Or make it easier and make cyberverse versions of the autobots so all current dinobots will still be in scale.

    Scorn is larger than Grimlock in the movie. Even if they continued Cyberverse (soooo irritating that they didn't), the deluxes wouldn't be the right scale with Grimlock as a voyager.

    Leader sized would have been to expensive. All of them being Voyager size would have been fine though

    I just want a deluxe Optimus Prime (in his new body) with some kind of engineering that allows him to 'ride' Leader Grimlock. I know Scorn was the same size as Grimlock, but I bought the leader on sale the other day and I love it. I'm gonna buy at least the Dinobots that were in the movie. I think Leader Grimlock's colours look awesome with Strafe in particular.

    I'm glad I can get all of them for a low price right now but yeah, making them at least Voyager sized would have been preferable.

    In the film, Optimus was only as tall as Grimlock's thigh in bot mode. They were enormous

    Thats why they should all be leaders scale btu hasbro gives a doesn't give a shit about fans
    I mean come on scorn and the rest of the dinobots look ridiculous next to leader grimlock
    Even Hound towers over them!And they didn't have to release that shit dotm leader bumblebee again did they?Without its mechtech it looks like an oversized knock off!
    They could have made a leader scorn instead of that shit!And all of the dinobots dont have to be leader class Slug and Strafe could be bigger voyagers And Snarl too and slog could also be a lleader class !
    And most importantly Everyone would be happy because there would be a voyager western star OP

    I would really hope for More Larger Dinobots, but I wouldn't count on it. Plus, I believe there is still a rumor for a 3rd AOE Leader Class figure.

    I don't see how it's a spoiler that the dinobots are big.

    It's also because very few people would buy all the Dinobots at that price point aside from some collectors.

    The mass public wouldn't it would be a waste of money to make them.

    I thought we heard that Leader Bee was an Australia Exclusive or something months ago? Considering the boxes of the Leader Optimus and Grimlock are actually shorter than Bumblebee's box it seems odd it'd be a Mass release thing

    Yes or they wouldn't keep making Bumblebee stuff.
