    Trying to think, but nothing comes to mind. Have we never gotten anything bigger than a Voyager/Ultra class figure in the CHUG lines? That isn't a repaint (thinking Unicron).

    Could a FoC Grimlock break that streak if he is announced?

    No to the first question.

    If there is a FoC Grimlock he'll probably be a Voyager.

    Probably because Hasbro has never had to have CHUG as it's main line or something to spend most of their money on. Usually, the only things that get Leader figures are TV shows or Movies.

    No, from what I remember, Ultra class was $30, Voyager was $20, Leaders were $40-50. You should also be able to tell by the difference in box size.

    Well we had Unicron but he's more of a supreme class figure than a leader class figure

    Well, I doubt we will get him as a Leader, but maybe? I think he might be a little too similar to MP Grimlock if they do that though. I would like to see them make other characters in Classics as Leaders though, especially someone like Trypticon or Scorponok. I'd love to see Scorponok with the movie scorpion mode, and the G1 Robot Mode!

    I guess one can argue that the Masterpieces released so far sans MP-01 were all Leader-sized.
