    Are the masterpiece versions of DOTM Leader Sentinel Prime & Leader Ironhide still coming or not?

    Were they ever even actually announced?

    Last I knew it was just random speculation taken as fact.

    Only source was Seibertron and never confirmed.

    Doubt they're ever coming.

    Sentinel Prime would be nice, it needs a "premium" paintjob. I'm not sure Ironhide is good enough a mold to be considered. I sure as heck won't buy it.

    I don't believe they were ever confirmed.

    I thought the initial assumptions of a Movie Masterpiece release was confusion over how Takara's Leader Ironhide release was referred to as "Ultimate Ironhide" or something like that.

    I believe Lbsammills51 answered the question correctly.

    Yup a false rumor posted on Seibertron. People should realize the Movie Masterpiece figures were only ever Leader or larger figures not previously released in Japan. So Ironhide and Sentinel are not likely as they were released in DotM.

    That rumor is like over a year old now. Funny how people still think it might have been true after all this time.

    Well, it took over 1 year for the Diablock Animated kits to be released after they got announced, so you never know... :)

    Alternity Banzaitron and Galvatron were announced by Takara last summer if I'm correct, and they're still not around.

    MMP Sentinel and Ironhide were never announced by Takara...

    You're missing the point where the other Movie Masterpiece figures were molds previously unreleased in Japan, not stuff released by the boat load during the movie product stint. So yeah, not going to happen (as pointed out below too, they were never announced).

    I have a feeling those Alternity plans were canceled (perhaps the first two didn't sell well enough).
