    Where is he? I know he's coming. I wonder if his tanker truck alt mode is only temporary and he scans a new vehicle for the final battle in the movie. It makes sense as to why there's been virtually no mention of him as a leader class yet.

    I think he means one would think it's obvious they plan to bring one out at some point. It is odd there isn't even a mention of him in leader class. It really could be another tight-lipped thing regarding the film.

    A leader class Megs, especially with the tanker truck design, would be really nice. Then again, a leader Bonecrusher or Blackout would've been just as nice :(

    I haven't seen a mention of any Leader class Decepticons for the DOTM yet. Also with the exception of Beastmachines and Machine Wars, every toyline offered the Decepticon leader as a larger toy.

    Either you do know, or you don't know. I'm going to guess you don't.

    I would love to see DotM Megatron's design made as a Leader class figure. However I'm not going to hold my breath waiting for him to be announced. I'm also on the hunt for a Voyager Megatron to go with the Voyager Optimus I have. That way if we don't get a new Leader class Megatron, I'll still have an Optimus and a Megatron in the same size class.

    My guess is they have already designed Leader Megs and are just waiting to reveal him after the movie is released.

    I hope I am WRONG, but I am starting to believe that we will not be seeing a Leader Megatron or Shockwave. The reason being is because we are not getting a Leader Optimus this time because we are getting an "Ultimate" one instead. I don't know much about the movie, but it seems Megatron will not be as prominant as he was in the previous films. Again, I hope I am wrong because finally we get a pretty good Megatron and it would be a shame not to get a Leader version of this one.

    I'd LOVE to see a Leader Megatron and an "Ultimate" Shockwave with his "pet".

    There will be probably be a follow-up toyline for DotM, like HftD was for RotF. HftD brought us Leader Starscream, so if we don't get Leader Megs this time around, there is still hope. :)

    The only one I see possibly happening is Leader Megatron.

    Well, we're apparently not seeing any leaders for the TFP line (initially, at least), so that might free up a slot or two for extra DOTM leaders post-Ironhide.

    If Prime didn't have leaders that doesn't mean another line gets bonus ones.

    I would love Megatron, Shockwave, and Ratchet to get the Leader-class treatment (and with the level of detail and articulation we've come to expect [ie NO repeats of the RotF Leader Megatron fiasco]), but I don't really see Shockwave or Ratchet getting larger toys. Megatron's a maybe right now.

    So far, there's not much evidence going for any more movie leaders. True, there's usually three per year, and they could be next year's three, but the Bayverse seems to be done.

    His semi truck vehicle mode is not temporary, he has it all through out the movie. I've got the novel, read it and he still has his truck mode for the final battle.

    I'm willing to say, that we won't see any Leader Megatron or Shockwave, we're getting more Autobot figures and less Decepticon figures now and like others have said, we've only had 3 Leader class figures in the other movie lines.

    Movie 1: Optimus, Megatron, and Brawl
    Movie 2: Optimus, Megatron, and Jetfire
    Movie 3 (We know of the 3): Sentinel, Bumblebee, and Ironhide.

    Starscream was HFTD which wasn't technically a movie line. So, if we do wind up getting a Megs, it will probably wind up being like Starscream and be in a follow up line to DOTM.

    He's coming late. He's had some trouble getting used to a truck form so he got towed for illegal parking. Currently awaiting for Soundwave to pay the fine.
