Hey, mans...we all get our freak on how we gotta, dig? No judgment.
Found a listing with stock photos of both Leader Optimus Prime and Megatron at UK distributor Wind Designs, confirming the line-up for wave 1 of the Leaders!
Also: Stock photos of Autobot Sqweeks RC.
Photos mirrored in this thread, as well as barcodes for those that might want to use those.
You seem to have missed the alternate mode photos for the Leaders. You can find them on the Wind Designs page using the > navigation arrow.
Looks like Berserker's made from a silvery plastic. Why couldn't they use this for the deluxe and Voyager Optimus instead of varying shades of grey?
Leader Megatron\'s sword appears to have lost the gold paint it had at ToyFair. A shame.
Nevermore dude you are the best. I was just concerned since I haven't seen ANY listings for the leaders, thanks for putting my mind at ease.
Legion Crosshairs & Drift
Deluxe Squeeks, Drift, & Steelbane
Voyager Megatron & Hound
My planned purchases for Wave 2.
Man in hindsight Wave 1 was a dissapointment since I'm only getting/interested in four figures from it (Legion & Deluxe Barricade, Berserker, & Voyager Prime)
Anyway, Voyager Hound has to be my favorite. Love the character and this figure seems to be an improvement over the last(even though I love the AOE Voyager)

Glad to see this updated with Op and Megsy The two Megsy voyager and leader classes are on my radar.
i wonder if the fusion canon / shield can seperate and swapped placement on the other arm, because i have seen an artwork of megs with a shield that resembles the leader class toy's fusion canon + shield combo
That zero-effort "I guess the kids like Optimus" leader re-release better be the biggest shelf-warmer of all time. What a waste of plastic.
That doesn't make sense, he's still a licensed vehicle, he's even the same model only with a different back end. What would they be saving?
I bet Mattel has the rights to those toy cars that size.
I can wait on Sqweek and Drift, but Definite on Hound and Megatron.
Though I am not really a movie toy collector, both Hound and Megatron interest me. I\'m going to wait and see what people think is the better toy between Voyager and Leader Megs, and get that. And Hound must have some interesting stuff going on in order to pull off those feet.
The more I look at that leader class Megatron the more impatient I am to get it.
Why are they rereleasing the old leader optimus mold and not the updated one? It doesn't make any sense :-/
It was the same with lockdown. The deluxe was licensed but all the gimmick figures were modified into a made up car similar to a Lamborghini. Which probably meant the cost of licensing across a number of products was too much so they decided on just one. If you look closely the non-premier Drifts have the Merc badge missing in both modes as does Hound. Drift's car mode is modified enough to not make it require a license, same as Lockdown Compare the stock images for the legion and deluxe, the differences are subtle but they're there. The one step has exactly the same spoiler as the legion so it's not specific to one figure. WPlus it can't be anything to do with scale because the allspark tech figures look to be roughly deluxe size. We'll soon know. We'll just have to look on the packaging to see if they're licensed or not.
Well, I guess Hasbro thinks that the 1-step designed for younger collectors deserves a lot more detail then the deluxe.
