    Hmm, interesting. Leader? Wonder if it's just the Takara Ultimate Optimus without all the jet stuff.

    I dunno. If we get any more leader optimus figures I'm going to have to build an addition onto my house.

    Chances are it's just the jetwing...minus the jetwing parts. Hopefully they'll do the buster paint-job for this guy. :p

    my interest is peaked for this. I've waited years to be able to buy the "ultimate" movie Prime figure

    I've been thinking that there would be an updated leader. I think Takara used the other one for the Jet Wing because it was already made to get a backpack.

    That'd be disapointing to get a Jetwing Prime redeco minus the jetpack. I hope it's a brand new mold.

    I plan on buying JetWing Prime, so I don't have any desire to buy this one.

    Me too. I would love to see what haskaromy would come up with. I imagine just as detailed as the rotf leader but more pleasant to transform and mechtech ports in strategically placed places...besides, it makes sense, considering
    kids might want a leader prime to take on sentinel but might not be able to afford ultimate prime assuming this "new" leader will be sold here eventually unlike jetwings prime

    Depending on how this one looks, might bite on it. Jet wing prone is expensive as crap, and bigger than the jetfire prime combo I'm guessing, if not the same size-ish.

    I think jetwings is defnitely bigger by a substantial amount.

    I was thinking that Hasbro might release the Takara remolded jetwing Optimus without the jetpack, and so now it looks like Takara might do the same...
