    For me with most of them, bigger is better. With the size reduction on the new Voyagers, I just don't think Voyager Shockwave is big enough for my collection display. I could really care less about getting a Prime as Busta is the shizzle, though I would like the Takara Jetpack to be released over here. As much as the Leader Megs have been turds in the previous movie, I am not begging for a new one, as two in the display is enough for me.

    I think we just want a few more options that scale (I know true scale is never achieved, and I am not a scale nazi) with their counterparts. It has been why people have been begging for a Leader Blackout (and to a lesser extent Fallen) for 4 years now. But I can't complain too much, I like what we have gotten for the mostpart up to this point.

    For Shocky, I'm not going to hold my breath since he didn't do too much in the movie (although he was badass),
    which means I'm going to hunt for that Voyager.
    But if he does get a Leader Class in a subline or later, i'm going to have to pull a
    Leader/Voyager Starscream in having both.

    As for Optimus, we already have two Japan exclusives using the ROTF mold, so it doesn't really matter.
    And the ROTF mold is already the perfect Movie Prime.

    As for Megatron, DO WANT!

    Because we need a DOTM accurate Prime. But he's last on the list compared to Megs and Screamer.

    I didn't like the first two leader megatrons. I hope they do a better one this time around.

    I need a leader size to go with my other leader and HA figures. Not going to do voyager sized movie figures

    I don't want a leader anything anymore. Too big and expensive when perfectly good smaller ones exist.

    People love their scale. And Leader figures tend to get the most engineering love from Hasbro. Megatron's new design deserves better than the Voyager, albeit a decent toy.

    The Prime forum this is not.

    Completely agree, my friend. I love his DOTM design and think they could make an amazing Megs if they try. Look at HFTD Starscream for support

    I just want a Leader Megatron, one that will hopefully be screen accurate and be way better than his previous Leader figures. So yes, it is a big deal to me that we get a DOTM Leader Megatron.

    I'll also take a Leader Shockwave if they do come out with him, just because he has a bad-ass design that should warrant him a Leader figure, despite the fact he isn't the big bad in DOTM like I initially thought he would be.

    Personally, I don't want another Leader Optimus Prime, since the ROTF Leader mold is absolutely perfect. But I would like a re-release of ROTF Leader Optimus Prime with the trailer from DOTM. There's no way I'm getting the Ultimate Optimus Prime since I'm not too pleased how his robot mode looks; I wished that they took the ROTF Leader mold and retooled it instead of coming out with a new mold for Optimus that's not all that screen accurate.

    Shockwave's not a bad looking toy honestly. Don't quite care for his Cybetronian Tank alt form... but the main form looks pretty menacing. He's also good enough to stand in for a Classics Shockwave update methinks.

    THIS, I've become MUCH pickier with my collection and really I'd rather have a smaller voyager size TFs than a leader class that looks REALLY cheap next to my large diecast Chogokins.

    well you said it. we have the perfect prime (rotf leader), perfect starscream (hftd - bot mode at least) and pretty cool sentinel (i don't have it yet, so i don't know if he's perfect). we NEED the perfect megatron to go with them. i just want Optimus=Megatron=Starscream=Sentinel>Ironhide=Ratchet>Bee=Sideswipe=Mirage=Soundwave and other cars like they have in the movie. is it really too much to ask? also, i wouldn't mind voyager Dreads or leader shockwave but megatron comes first, as always :)

    They could do so much with a shockwave leader. Who says his alt form has to be a tank. The metal snakes that surround him could form into something also. That 4 tentical thing could be his alt form. We have seen tank forms with Megs already I hope Shockwave gets something new if they leader him.

    Movie 1 and 2 Megatrons were terrible designs with even worse figures.

    TF3 Megs is FREAKING SWEET!!! and the voyager is a fairly poor representation of the awesome design (plus just too dang small)
