    Since the recent Soundwave, Megatron, and seeker trio were all leaders, I feel like a Leader Shockwave would fit very nicely with them. However, that's just for my collection, obviously not yours. I feel like the seekers should be voyagers, but I feel like since we got leaders I might as well roll with it.

    I'd also like a leader Shockwave to stand beside my leader Soundwave and Megatron.

    And only have 3 leader seekers is a weakness in my CHUG setup. Need some leader coneheads.

    I've been on these boards long enough to know you stated that all wrong. You're supposed to list a size and then pretend everyone should want that size, too, and that it's wrong-headed to want Shockwave at any other size :D 

    I'd be fine at Shockwave at either leader or voyager class - my Starscream will probably* be the PotP voyager one, so I don't mind Shock being that size, too. I have an unsupported feeling we'll see Shockwave as a late wave voyager in PotP

    *As long as I can get at least the other two Seekers at that size class

    Shockwave solution- POTP Leader that lets you choose between slightly bigger than Deluxe sized Shockwave or Leader Class Shockwave Prime (that both happen to look like G1 Shockwave). :)

    Orion Pax G1....
    I'd say POTP Optimus cleans this up a bit.

    I think I may have said this already but since we're talking about the Primes prior Optimus, I'd also like to see Nova Major to Nemesis Prime.

    It does look fantastic, it makes up for the shock of going G1 instead of modern Orion.

    Thanksgiving to Christmas would be the best guess right now (end of Nov-mid Dec).

    We know that TRU has a release date of Dec 1st for everything except the Leader Class figures. That is (I believe) for North America or at least for the U.S. If you work from that, the figures should be out in Asia in November sometime. Maaayyybe even late October. So, if you are okay with paying an EBay markup, you could perhaps get your hands on them early November-ish...?

    Also depends on if that is the release date or saturation date - They could be out in the US a couple weeks before that if Dec. 1 is the saturation date. But yes, definitely in Asia in November or late October. We'll find out all sorts of fun things then - can Slash interact w/Volcanicus, do the instructions give 'canonical' combiners for all the singletons we know about now, etc. Should be fun

    Man I don't care when to expect seeing them on US pegs all I care about is when to expect preorders on Bigbadtoystore :lol  I'm not buying a single Transformer at retail again.
