    Now that we know Blackout also returns, this better mean that Hasbro will come up w/ a Leader class, and I hope they do, discuss. :thumbs2:

    Ah, this issue again ;) 

    Well, i'm with you and a lot of others on this... Leader Class Blackout would be good; assuming they could make it accurate, of course.

    Doubt it, we'll likely just be getting the three Leader Class molds. I do wonder what the Voyager toy will be, a repaint or a new mold.

    I have nothing to base this off of, but I'll give a 1/1000 chance of Blackout gettign a leader class figure. I dont see Hasbro spending the $ on a character that already has a figure out. Chances are Leader sized figures would be reserved to new characters, like Jetfire.

    Leader class is unlikely, but it would be nice if Blackout could get a new toy that isn't total shit this time.

    Buy the Legends figure. Awesome little thing.

    Also, this thread has broken me. Just the other day I commented that I hadn't noticed that many duplicate threads, but this... Man, I nearly wept at seeing another "Why don't they make 'X' as a Leader class figure?" thread.

    Blackout does'nt seem to have a big role though. A new mold voyager with some mech alive instead of automorph would be great.

    Starscream got a completly new voyager after all.

    I think I saw a Q&A here that said they get 3 leaders a year. Sorry, no Blackout.

    I don't care one way or another. Voyager Blackout is cool so whatever. There are quite a few letdowns from ROTF, but there are also alot of cool stuff in trade.

    I've taken this matter into my own hands. My Xacto knife-chopped, paint-splattered hands. Unfortunately he'll be in progress for a long time :(

    As much as I'd like to see one, no I doubt it. Hasbro hasn't shown any inclination to budge from the 'three Leader class figures' thing. A new Voyager that at least gets his head to Starscream's height would be nice. Save box space by displaying him in 'bot mode if that helps at all.

    As much as I would love to see, and buy, a Leader class Blackout figure, I honesty can't see it happening. At least not in the RotF toy line. We aleady know who the three Leader class molds are (Prime, Megs, & Jetfire). I also think a new Voyager class mold is out of the question too, unless the other repaint we've recently seen (the one similar to the FAB Grindor repaint) is also a store exclusive. Even then I have a hard time seeing it. At best I think we may see a Robog Replica figure made for him, but other than that, I think we'll only see the repaints we already know about, and possibley a couple more (another Legends class repaint or something).
