    Considering the events that occur in Dark of the Moon.
    Was the reason for Leaderclass Ironhide. Just a cheap way to cash out on, what happens in the film?

    I think he's just among the handful of characters that they considered popular and memorable enough to get the Leader treatment.

    I don't think its because of that,I think it was mainly cause Ironhide was as popular as Bee is to some people and since they did him mostly in voyager size for all 3 movie lines they wanted to change him up some,hence Leader Class.

    But I just wish I could find him,my Walmart has about 100 Sentinels and Bee's clogging the shelves and until they sell I doubt we'll see him here so I can get him.

    My guess is that he was the last of the original group of autobots that they decided was worth a leader class and had not had one and his death would kick up more interest in getting the figure. Would be much surprised by a Red repaint of the leader class down the line.

    I have a feeling Leader Ironhide happened because they broke the rules by giving Bumblebee one, and it works so well with the Human Alliance figures. I also have a feeling that we're going to see more than just 3-4 Leader class figures come out now that the movies are over. Lots of people claim that Hasbro won't release more than that because they never have (yet), but I think we're in for a literal shit ton of movie related figs for another good year or two.

    At least Hasbro has given us 3 never before done Leader Class toys this time round, not just shitting out another half assed Megatron or a half dozen repaints of an otherwise amazing Optimus mould.

    I fail to understand how a death would stir up more interest in buying a character...it has the polar opposite effect on me. *shrug*

    They still need to make a Human Alliance Ratchet.
