    A solicit for a re-release of 2007 Movie Leader Optimus Prime and Megatron has been announced. It will be an Asia Exclusive. I am guessing it may be part of the Asia exclusive Trilogy line. It may probably have the same deco as the originals. Keep in mind Asia did not receive much of these toys compared to the USA and Japan. The retail price translates to about $210 USD. The release date is slated for August 2012. This information comes from a Thai website:

    China has more money then they use to (For obvious reasons), this is a sign of the times, they have mass disposable income.

    That's... kind of random.

    I'm not sure who'd want these, regardless of whether they'd not had them available before. They look pretty sorry next to later Leader versions of the characters.

    Leader Megatron is a pretty crappy figure, Optimus though I still like.

    Nice to see them releasing some of the original movie toys in the Movie Trilogy line, here's hoping they give us a second chance at Brawl in the near future, he was definitely one of my favorite Leader Class toys.
