    I know it is highly unlikely that there will be one (which sucks, offcourse), but does ANYONE have any info on whether there will be a leader class Lungnut. Cause I think everyone here can agree that the voyager class one has some serious size issues.

    No... Botcon said no.

    Toys have to be designed for toy class and not show scale. Otherwise they would have half the cast needing leader size toys to scale to the deluxe. We have never had an 'in scale' toyline why start now?

    why not start now? and although not in scale, many are semi close-only one totally out of whack is Lugnut, and i agree-larger toy needed

    His alt mode is pretty in scale with the other flying decepticons,
    So you could just not transform him and he'd be fine.

    His Voyager Alt mode is almost as big as Leader Megatron's, how the hell is that small? You're just seeing things because of your Leader Lugnut dreams!

    We had this disscussion shortly after Botcon, there's no Leader class Lugnut in the first year of animated toys.
    Hasbro do however now know that fans want one so it might happen but even if it did it wouldn't be for some time as these toys take months to design and ready for manufacture.

    As the old saying goes, "don't hold your breath". ;)

    There's a picture of the decepticon air force in Peaugh's Blitzwing feedback topic, here

    He's a tad small, but good enough for me.

    i know! he needs to be leader sized-i wish i could go to hasbro-i know a design for him that would work as leader and give him the P.O.K.E., allow him to keep his mace, and make his back kibble from the ytoy non-existant

    So have you seen Sentinel prime? When are we gonna have the "we need voyage sentinel?"

    And then you have seen grimlock, when do we get LEADER GRIMLCOK?

    Lugnut is not Bulkhead. bulkhead Important, Lugnut is not. It is a waste of time and money for Hasbro to make Leader Lugnut...

    If the reason is "for the fans" then it won't happen because that is not enough to get a toy made. I would rather every other character get unique toys before we start doubling up characters into multi scale as they will cannibalize the sales as people won't buy both for the most part.

    I bet it's the one that's floating around Detroit all the time.
    It'd be awesome if it transformed.

    I and a few other people want a voyager Sentinel.

    and have you seen Grimlock.
    He's only a tad shorter than Voyager Optimus, and in the show he's only a tad taller.
