The question should be "will we finally get a good Leader Megatron?"
Not on board with DRAGONS. Lame-o.
Why does Hasbro keep trying that? Cybertron, Prime, and now this. I just don't see the connection. Why not do unicorns and trolls, too? It's a fantasy element, and when the fans bicker about Prime being a truck or monkey, it makes little sense to add yet another alt mode: fanta-crap creatures!
I'm not saying it's a bad concept... I'm saying dragons are for 14 yr old girls? Just tired of the concept, and even when included into the media (i.e. Prime), it's always so forced and awkward. Like those 3 kids in the Unicron trilogy.
I just hope that, like those 3 Unicron kids, this dragon holds the fate of the entire universe by being able to sense or hear something that Transformers normally can't. Cause what better way can you make an unusual thing most prominent? You shoehorning it forcefully into the main plot! "PRIME: We need this dragon to fly us into the heart of the black hole cause only this dragon can withstand the dark forces and save all of Cybertron from imminent DOOM! (Also, buy this toy!)"
The first leader was okay and was good for it's time.
LOL, pretty sure they're just marking where Easter falls. Easter is the second biggest toy buying season next to Christmas.
You mean besides the size of Stomp n' Chomp Grimlock compared to Beast Fire Predaking and how both transform?
No. No. Carry on.
No kidding. He looks pretty badass. Still wonder who the dragon is because seeing it and Megs as seperate figures rules that theory out (unless he goes balls to the wall and gets *another* new form.
That was the name of the main villain from the Ultraverse comic Mantra
is that, BRUTICUS!!! wow i thought we were getting menesor but both! wow. the dragon reminds me allot of TFP Beast fire Predaking, and it is the return of the allspark! really excited now! also do i see, the return of bot shots near the left corner? leader class megatron looks amazing and the hound looks worthy of a purchase unlike AOE's hound. i just can't wait to see titans return wave 5. and on the packaging to the dragon, i thunk i see *BONEYARD* : ( if thats his name i will stick my head in my pillow for 24 hours.
Snarky response aside, have we seen this new Predaking be transformed?
I also think that Drift is licensed as a Mercedes too !
Where are people seeing Bruticus? I mean...it's safe to assume he's in there in some form due to Onslaught and TLK having combiner packs but...
Lot of interesting things here.
Surprised to see MEgatron get a Leader class figure. I'm not complaining though just shocked in a good way.
Speaking of leaders does it look like we'll be seeing Takara's Armor Knight Optimus mold be released in the USA?
I'm liking how Hound is looking. Same goes for Drift. We also get a better look at the dragon's robot mode.
Not gonna lie I would not object to that being his name. Very macabre and epic.
Where is this Leader Megatron? I only see what appears to be a gimmick Megatron in open packaging.
So they took a figure that was neither the size nor the same gimmick as Stomp n' Chomp...and then retooled it into a Stomp n' Chomp sized figure and added electronics?
Occam's Razor at that point would suggest he's either an entirely new figure or a Stomp n' Chomp retool. Not this magical Beast Fire redo.
Just realised thats a non-chromey AOE leader Optimus. Can't decide if that makes it more or less desireable lol
He means to RID
Cautiously optimistic for that leader Megs. The leaked proto pics looked pretty nice.
Nope, he has chrome.
Some more points...
That's an F-22 next to the silver car in the blind bags area, so Starscream and Cogman or Sideswipe.
Can we just appreciate the fact that Hasbro, I repeat, Hasbro, is using a Takara mold for the Movie line. That shitty "I hate cheap knockoffs" Bee doesn't seem so prominent now.
All-Spark figures come with an All-Spark. Nice, I'm getting one for my display.
Nice to see Dragon/Monster/Boneyard has a robot mode.
Deluxe Drift or Titan "Thick plastic but more hollow than a cereal bowl" 12 inch Drift?
Again, how do we know it is a stomp and chomp like figure? I am way out of the loop since i saw pics a while ago, i should add.
That's a voyager class i think (the proto).
Separate names with a comma.
