    Probably been done to death, but I don't remember anyone actually asking about specific release dates so.... Do we know when the release dates are supposed to be for DOTM deluxe wave 6 (Wheeljack, Soundwave, etc.) and HA wave 3 (Leadfoot and Soundwave) will be?

    Also, is there any indication that we will see any new DOTM Leader Molds? Even if they are Megatron and/or Optimus?

    No new leader molds were announced at SDCC.

    HA Leadfoot won't be a mass release, he's a Target exclusive. HA Soundwave is supposed to hit Q4 of this year.

    Wave 4 Deluxes are just now hitting, I'd say we've got a couple months till 6 hits.

    Wheeljack and Soundwave - shown on the Hasbro slides at SDCC. Slated for October / November, but my gut tells me it'll be nearer to late September.

    HA Leadfoot - not sure. Target exclusive, probably October if Takara is anything to go by.

    HA Soundwave - I think he's on the Hasbro presentation as November, but again, my gut says he'll show in October.

    Leaders - I saw reports that Shockwave and Megatron were in the works, but the source was questionable at best. The only new confirmed leader is the Japan-only Striker Optimus Prime, which is the reworked RotF Buster Optimus Prime with the alternate gun and shield. No word on if he'll make it to the US - but on the other hand, it's Prime, he's an easy sell.

    Didn't Peaugh get an international release version, which is essentially the same figure but without the Target logos?

    Yes. Nobody knows what wave he is, or how they'll handle distribution for him though

    I thought there were two versions of HA Leadfoot, mass release without Target logos and Target exclusive with logos?

    Within the US he'll be a Target exclusive and have the logos. Outside the US he will not have the logos, and will be mass release.
