    Currently their is no leader sized toys in the Prime toy line.

    The Two Maximus toys are selling at the $39.99 Leader price point in American retail stores.

    Maximus toys have the height and bulk of the Leader sized toys.

    Leader sized toys since DOTM. Have had a Optimus and Bumblebee in the assortment.

    I say by default,The Maximus toys are the Leader sized toys in the Prime toy line.

    Powerizers is the new size name for Voyagers. Weaponizers is the new size name for Ultra sized toys. Maximus seems like the new size name for Leader sized toys.

    Perhaps Hasbro felt the bigger more exspensive toys needed to be designed for younger kids. Hasbro might have taken away the high detail and complexity of the Leader sized toys. because younger kids found them too overly complicated and scarry in design.

    Nope, they're actually selling at the 30.00 price point. And 45.00 is actually the nominal price point for Leaders.

    They're selling at the same price point as the Weaponizers, which are a more apt comparison to Leaders.

    Like I said before, Weaponizers are just toned down leader toys that can be sold at Ultra prices. Optimus Maximus may be large, but it's also very hollow.

    TRU has consistent markup compared to Hasbro's MSRP and other stores.

    The Optimus Maximus playset, (of which there is only one so I don't know where you're getting the whole "the whole pricepoint is now called Maximus" deal) has an MSRP of 30.00.

    TRU is the worst place to go for Transformers unless they are TRU exclusives.
    And even then TRU is the worst place to go for Transformers.

    Their are Two Maximus toys that got released thus far. Optimus Maximus and Bumblebee maximus.

    The Prime section is for discussion of the prime toys and prime media.

    I thought Bee was a Cyberverse vehicle class not Maximus size ? -

    That said I've never seen all 4 at the same time so I have no basis to compare to as no where near me sells any of them.
