    There may be another thread about this, but I'm pretty sure I realized why there won't be a leader SS made for this movie, and it's really quite simple.

    With Megatron defeated, Starscream is now the leader of the Decepticons for TF2. Whether or not Megatron is brought back, I'm sure some of the focus will be on SS's leadership.

    Therefore, I would bet a bundle that one of the first toys we'll get for TF2 will be a leader Starscream... and maybe something like an Ultra Magnus if they put him in the movie lol.

    If TF2 is similar to the treatment that was leaked, I'm hoping for a new Prime leader figure, and a Soundwave leader figure. Starscream would be cool to see at that size, but, I'm not going to be surprised if he get's another Voyager, or even an Ultra, if they introduce that size class to the movie toys, :D .

    What would be unique about the new Prime toy then? If the setup involving the different loyalists is accurate to what they do with the new movie (without trying to give much away), I could see both a leader SS and Soundwave, considering it would be truth. Also, Ultra Magnus would fit the bill of a leader. Then again, they didn't exactly stick to the whole "leader" concept with Brawl/Devastator.

    leader is reserved for leaders, and big cool altmodes. which is why we will never get a leader bonecrusher.

    Bonecrusher's design was cool, period. The rear-mounted prongs in robot mode looked awesome. Truck mode seemed a bit bland, but, that might be to do with the colours.

    If they stick with all the parts that I liked about the leaked treatment, the Matrix gimmick :thumb .

    But with TF2, will they be using the same mold? I mean they need to sell toys, but if they stick to the old mold (particularly the Leader class - Prime & Megs) most of us would already have them and not justifiable to fork out extra dosh for the same thing. Or I could be wrong...:p 

    As for SS having a Leader class, that would be awesome - A detailed F22 that hopefully does not have exposed robot parts.

    I fon't think Prime will change a lot for TF2, since the cgi model needs to be almost the same to simplify the designs, maybe he'll get a new paint job or maybe hasbro will just made another toy for him based on the same design.

    Selling the same molds again for a few characters won't be hard to do for TF2. Prime in particular. Even with the restock, I haven't seen a Leader Prime in ages. I think there's enough demand for that figure to see it get released again in 2 years.

    I still stand by my belief that it'll be a mix of remolds and repaints, with new accessories and stuff. So Megatron might be repainted / remolded to reflect the tweaks to his look in the sequel or just to make him more accurate in the first place (perhaps a darker grey or something), essentially he'd be the repaint of the Leader Class toy we've not had yet.

    Although if the TF2 leak was true, I fully expect a "Leader Class" Devastator giftset. 5-6 Deluxes at a Leader pricepoint who combine? Yes please :p 
    I wouldn't be surprised if the Megatron were a deiced Voyager Class one or something, maybe fixed compared to the first one so his feet work and everything.

    I'm 99% sure Prime will get a new mold. It was confirmed by our TF2 insider that he'd be combining with jetfire. Unless the Jetfire mold is pretty genius then they're gonna hafta make a new prime that's combine-able.

    oh jeez. Zombie thread! I didn't even realize. GRAB THE SHOVELS! BURY IT!


    seriously though, the "related threads" deal at the bottom is responsible for this and doesn't seem to be useful for much else. I think it should be removed.
