    Anyone got any juicy word on whether there will be a leader shockwave or megatron? I was hoping botcon would shed light, but alas.

    Botcon was light on news this year. More should come out of Comiccon since it's after the movie release. However, we may not find out about news on leaders for a while.

    One the one hand, IIRC, there's always been three leaders per year in the past (?)

    On the other hand...i think news out of Toyfair said 'more leaders than usual were in the work's.

    Kinda soon for Hasbro to confirm either a Leader Shockwave or Megatron though.

    Plus Paramount seem to have them on a short leash this year anyway.

    Movie 1 and Animated had 3 (Optimus, Megatron, Brawl, and Bulkhead, Megatron, and Ultra Magnus), Revenge of the Fallen had 4 (Optimus, Megatron, Jetfire, and Starscream).

    If you include repaints, then the count goes to 7, 5, and 6, respectively.

    I think they made voyager megatron first... and then will release a sorta different leader megatron, do you remember in movie07 and ROTF, first there was leader megs with a non-movie design (more of a sketch inspired design) and then a voyager with the real movie design?, well, maybe this time they wanted to do voyager non-movie accurate first and then leader movie accurate (well, as accurate is possible)... and plan to show him (and aaall other DOTM figures) after the movie :p  I dunno, just supossing... and btw, there's still so much time to have a leader megatron, do you remember how much time it was since ROTF to get a leader starscream?

    Blackout have no chance. He isn't even appearing on the film. The best shot of having a leader are the major film characters.

    Yeah, there's no way in hell they're doing Blackout/Grindor/whatever if they didn't for the first two.

    I'd be happy with either a leader Megs or Shockwave, but I'd prefer Megs so I'd have one to match Prime. Shockwave would be nice too since his Voyager doesn't look that much like the movie version

    We'll get a Leader Blackout when hell freezes over.

    Megatron and Shockwave both will hopefully get Leader figures.

    With everything going on, I wouldn't be surprised to see "clones" of Barricade/Grindor in the movie
