    Hey dudes what up, Jimmy here, yeah last few days been overdosing on TF film toys, starting with my Buster Prime arriving then seeing Sentinel Prime, and then seeing all of the Toy Fair images and then freaking out over Leader Ironhide. Even though this owns why havent we gotten a Leader Blackout who I have wanted ever since Leader Brawl came out for the first movie. Look at the track record of every Leader class for all 3 films thus far....

    1) Film 1 Prime
    2) Film 1 Megs
    3) Film 1 Brawl
    4) Film 2 Prime
    5) Film 2 Megs
    6) Film 2 JetFire
    7) Film 2 Starscream
    8) Film 3 Bumblebee
    9) Film 3 Sentinel Prime
    10) Film 3 Ironhide......

    I think thats all of them, 10 Leader and still no Blackout???!!!!!

    The guy that died from one bullet to the taint two movies ago?

    ...I'd rather see Leader Shockwave, or hell, The Fallen.

    If they were ever going to do a leader class Blackout/Grindor it would have been done by now!

    and for that matter abandon trying to keep figuresin scale for transformers its more trouble than it is worth IMO.

    This again?

    Seriously, I dont get all the hype around a Leader Class blackout. The voyager is perfectly fine in my eyes.

    Sorry Jim, but you can give kids and the fans a polished turd and call it Blackout and they would be happier than getting a Leader Blackout(see above). Its a lost cause if there was one...

    Let me tell you something. While you're probably not going to care at all, and you're going to keep whining, if you do listen to me, it could do you wonders. It could make all of your worries stop. Are you ready?

    I thought we were done with wanting Leader Blackout just because the character was really tall... a human killed him with one shot, he didn't do a whole lot, and he's been gone 4 years now, asking kids to pay $40-$45 for one now is a marketing disaster waiting to happen.

    What is with this obsession with Leader Blackout? No calls for improved Voyager Blackout, no calls for Leaders of fellow giant Scavenger/Demolisher (and Long Haul?), or anything like that; just Leader Blackout.
    and we all know should Hasbro ever announce they'll make him, the typical fan response will be "I'll wait for clearance"


    I wonder why they went with Brawl for a Leader back in Movie 1, and not, say, Barricade. Barry's got obvious lights and sounds, a lot of screen time, a solid fan base, and would make a shnazzy rival for the larger Bumblebee toy.

    The because Brawl was by far the Decepticon that put up the strongest fight of the Decepticons. For the most part, he was the big centerpiece of the final battle of that film. As such, Hasbro predicted there'd be bigger demand for him as a leader instead of Bonecrusher or Blackout.

    Retrospect is a funny thing...

    deluxe ratchet,ironhide (deluxe )

    scout bumbleebee jazz ( we dont have )

    see it makes more sense that we get a scout jazz and bumblebee then leader black out And bigger dosnt meen better

    Time for a lost cause forum:

    Somewhere people can endlessly discuss things like:

    1) The rest of the Consructicons.
    2) A US re-release of G1 Megatron
    3) How Hasbro and TRU conspired to stop you from getting MP Roddy, with a trailer,
    from WalMart for 9.99


    Meanwhile the rest of us can get on with focusing on what is actually available to buy.

    ...and some of the other suggestions in this thread are ludicrous.

    You should have your eyes checked. :p 

    I'm still optimistic on the whole leader Blackout thing. It would be a thing full of awesome and win.

    I know how you feel OP. I mean, come one, what was the point doing Leader Bumblebee and Ironhide? I know we can't keep a perfect scale while collecting TF but it's still logic to get the bigger characters in the bigger (regular) size class, especially when there's already so much Bee and IH figures.

    DOTM Meg, Shockwave and Optimus needs Leader class figures, same goes for Blackout/Grindor, Bonecrusher, The Fallen, some Constructicons... Everyone knew from the beginning we wouldn't get all of them but the fact they are ruining Leader slots with figures that does not need this size class is really really annoying.
