    Does anyone want to see a Leader Class Lugnut be made? The Voyager one is sooooooooooooooooooo small. We need a bigger one, maybe one centimeter shorter than Leader Class Megatron, but maybe an inche wider that Leader Class Bulkhead. Please reply anyway you want to express your feelings on a Leader Class Lugnut.

    no. the voyager mold is great. its short, but the sculpt and engineering is top-notch.

    there's nothing to be gained from it, and he's not a major enough character to warrant it.

    I don't think the character is prominent enought to justify a leader class figure. He really hasn't been in many of the recent episodes and when he is in one, Blitzwing seems to get shown more. Voyager is probably the largest class he'll get. Bulkhead getting a leader class is justified since Bulky has such a large roll on the show.

    i think we've had this petition before, along with the leaderclass supreme blackout toy lol!

    if you look in the episodes he's not that big lol. voyager is fine, and we'll probably get better characters to be leaderclass ones later on anyways. like optimus prime, or shockwave.

    Everyone says that Lugnut isnt a prominent enough character so he wont get a Leader Class. Magnus on the other hand is in just about every episode so he is getting one. Ohh wait a sec he hardly on either what was I thinking.

    I'm unhesitantly signing the petition. Whether or not Hasbro heeds it is another story, though.

    Here, here!

    I'll sign that! Put me down. Sorry, but Bulkhead and Lugnut, despite being big guys on the cartoon are really tiny. That's a GROSS size discrepancy, akin to BB being larger than Prime. If Bulkhead being a brand new character and not based on any existing character can get a Leader size with soundbytes, than why not his arch enemy? Bulkhead vs Lugnut...the two characters are classified as big bruisers, so why not make "The Incredible Hulk" of the Decepticons this hulking big mofo? Imagine how many Decepticon fans would snatch him up for his sounds alone?

    And as for prominence, he is one of the three main Decepticons on the show, not counting Starscream.

    What is with the old threads? Granted it's not that old, but still, it's over a month old.

    Voyager lugnut is shelfwarming a little.
    As long as it doesn't sell big,
    hasbro won't justify a leader upgrade.
    Current lugnut is one of my top 5 animated.
    It's a great fig.
    If you're measuring all your figs to the millimeter
    You'll never be satisfied.
    Move on, enjoy the lugnut there is,
    not the one that will never be.

    I look forward to repeating this in next leader lugnut thread.

    Look, the real hurdle here is the lead time it's going to take from acceptance of a petition to store shelves. If Hasbro isn't simply hiding its existence from us, it's going to be at least a year until we can see it. You know what's coming in about a year? Bayformers 2. We'll be lucky if Animated picks up afterward, let alone keeps going uninterrupted.

    Ordinarily, I'm not someone who complains about scale. If anything, I'd say the scale of the toys is prefereable to the scale of the cartoon. Bumblebee isn't embarassingly tiny, and Voyager Prime looks uber manly, able to reach up and bitch slap Megatron. No being carried around like a dolly and chucked through space bridges for THIS Optimus!

    But Voyager Lugnut is really a gross misjustice. You cannot give me a Lugnut who is the tiniest of the Animated Decepticons and tell me that that is ok. Dude should be at least as big as Starscream is in height. And I'd say that THAT is why Lugnut is a shelf warmer, too. His size. I'd go out on a limb to say that if Lugnut were bigger, he'd FLY off the shelves.

    I know for myself, dispite my love of the character, I most likely will pass on Lugnut altogether. But IF a Leader Lugnut comes out...I'll have it in a heart beat.
