    For DOTM, obviously.

    Megatron, probably. I don't want to see one for Shockwave, I think cybertronian mode leaders are a waste.

    I would say there's a good chance of seeing one or both, but maybe not until later down the line once the banner has changed, like leader Starscream was released under Hunt for the Decepticons.

    Then again, we only ever got a voyager class Fallen, so...

    I'm not totally convinced we WON'T see Leader versions, but it won't be till 2012.

    I think Hasbro sees the economy still struggling and Leader Class toys are a tough sell.

    As fans we probably have a bit of a rose tint on how well the larger figures sell.

    I don't think the chances are good because the larger figures just don't move all that fast and retailers seem to like toys that move fast.

    Plus maybe it's just me but the Shockwave Hasbro showed off looks good enough that I don't think we really need a bigger one.

    Be our luck, we'll get a Leader Megatron but no Leader Shockwave.

    My thoughts are no matter how much screen time Shocky gets Hasbro is not gonna waste there time making him,as for Megs he is too important for them not to make a leader fig.Plus he has the second coolest alt mode next to G1's Walther P38.Finally I say I agree that it won't be till late this year or early next before we see him and slim chance Shocky but we will get him.Later all.

    A leader Shockwave would probably not be too great going by past experiences.

    I'm saying Leader Megatron, but no Shockwave. Cybertronian alt-modes are pretty meh anyways.

    As much as I would like a Leader Class version of the DOTM Megatron, I'm afraid the Leader Class assortments will look more like this:

    Wave 1:
    1x Bumblebee
    1x Sentinel Prime

    Wave 2:
    2x Bumblebee

    Wave 3:
    1x Bumblebee
    1x Ironhide

    Wave 4:
    1x Ironhide
    1x Stealth-Tech Battle-Mech Covert-Ops Bumblebee or some kind of BB redeco

    Wave 5 - final wave:
    2x Stealth-Tech Battle-Mech Covert-Ops Bumblebee or some kind of BB redeco

    Well... maybe that's not entirely realistic: They'll probably throw an Optimus repaint in there somewhere too, most likely in place of the Wave 4 Ironhide.

    :lolol 

    As much I like Shockwave's design, I doubt we'll see a Leader Class version of him. Megatron, on the other hand, has a slightly better chances on getting a Leader Class figure.

    Megatron: definitely. Shockwave: unlikely.

    In my opinion, Megatron will be the one to get a Leader-class figure. Shockwave's Voyager looks damn good as it is, while (again, IMO) Megatron's seems like it would be better as a Leader.

    Shockwave will probably get one down the line, like how Starscream got one.

    I doubt they'll do either of them.

    If this is the last movie for a while, I wouldn't doubt if it is whoring around for quite a while. I would prefer a Shockwave just because we have already gotten two Megs (as crappy as they are). I display gimpy arm Megs behind Leader Starscream, so he doesn't look terrible. I would hope that we are getting a 4th Leader mold in this movie's continuity at some point.

    How bout Leader Shockwave and Ultimate Megatron to go with the Ultimate Prime we are getting.
