    I know its a long shot, especially since Omega Supreme wasn't made for WFC but with the huge push for FoC and the large role/presence Metroplex seems to carry is there an opportunity for Hasbro to release maybe a leader sized figure?

    It's possible. But I would imagine it would be en exclusive if they did make one. Maybe the way say something about it at Comic Con but we will have to wait and see.

    Anything less than Leader Class would be a major disappointment.

    Then again, we don't even know what he turns into this time.

    This is about a 99% chance that any Metroplex toy made would not be at a larger size. Generations doesn't go up to leader.

    True, but up until FoC, Generations didn't go up to Voyager either. I don't think that means that Leader toys for Generations/FoC are inevitable, but it does make me a little curious.

    This is the main line replacing the movie line. It has bigger visibility then the classics which seem to be tied to nostalgia or idw.

    That being said, anything is possible. I think the first go round saw nothing big because of the untested waters with wfc in the pre production stages. Now they have a voyager Soundwave .

    I'd take a FOC figure in pretty much any size. Make them in multiple sizes and I will buy them all.

    Im pretty sure Prime is the main line now being that you know its the new show and all. It also has cyberverse, deluxe, voyagers, weaponizers, playsets, etc. Generations will run along side the Prime line.

    Right, brain fart on my part. Haven't watched in a while and not really into the figures so I forgotten. I think foc reaches past the tv audience and hits gamers and others not interested in the tv series though.

    Hasbro indicated true Leader class toys are shelved for now.

    Aside from which......unless FOC is some sort of smash hit toysales-wise, i just can't see Hasbro being willing to take the risk.

    We'll be extremely lucky if we get one in Leader Class, but given the shrinking sizes of the newer TFs, he'll probably be much smaller than Galaxy Force/Cybertron Metroplex, but still bigger than G1 :p

    I will assume we are getting nothing from Fall other than what has been shown thus far. That way if something else does pop up, I'll have a nice surprise.

    Im sure they will show off a few surprises at SDCC, like voyager Grimlock. We know soundwave voyager needs a case mate.

    Yes, but they confirmed Voyager Class just for WFC Soundwave and his dumb gimmick.

    For any size fears let me just refresh everyone's mind:

    What class would this monstrosity be? Leader, ultra? Supreme (haven't seen it in person so no idea here). Yeah so size wise anything is viable.

    Would be neat to have a WFC Trypitcon, Omega Supreme and a FOC Metroplex in leader class. Most likely a pipe dream but the figures they are making will help ease the pain from the lack of big bots.

    can you put him next to a deluxe WFC or PRID figure?

    but i'd love to see a leader class Metroplex. just leader though. i don't want one of those weird cyberverse playsets. especially a translucent one
