    Already? The stuff from the first movie won't be gone by the time that stuff's out.

    Cool! I can imagine a Leader class Starscream, it has great possibilities!

    I'm excited already!

    I'm frightened that we're gonna get a leader-class Bumblebee, or a barely-changed mold of either OP or Megatron.

    Jeebus. Samples leaking in AUGUST?

    Maybe Hasbro will show a tiny bit of stuff at SDCC to beat them to the punch.

    Wow...already. Can't wait to see the leader size Starscream. My guess is that he goes to Cybertron and gets fully loaded. :D

    I still think that it's too early. We know how quickly designs can change during production, though with most characters it shouldn't be an issue. (if it's someone like Starscream)

    Also, they give credit to Dak on the front page, but it's Pascal who's delivering the info.

    Bah, there'll probably just be another leader class Optimus Prime, taking up one of like 3 leader class slots, even though we already got an excellent leader class Prime with the first movie line.

    If it's SS maybe he'll go to Cybertron and fix his legs, giving him the proportions of G1 SS and making him larger

    A Leader sized Starscream would be cool. But, I wouldn't mind seeing a brand new character get the leader treatment, either.

    I'm not surprised.

    And if they're doing a Leader-class Prime, I would LOVE it if it was a new mold that IMPROVED on the already phenominally awesome original.

    well i'm sure that there won't be any MAJOR changes to starscream in the movie. just to have a leader class starscream is worth the price of purchase. hope they do his paint like the deep space version.

    Not surprising that they're already working on them. Would be cool to see a Leader class Starscream, but I have a feeling that even if they did make one, I still wouldn't buy it, as I'm happy enough with the Voyager I have. It may not be perfect, but it's really good as-is.

    Edit: As for the Jetfire character we're supposed to be getting, I'm hoping that even if he gets a Leader or even a Supreme toy, that he also gets a Voyager class toy. It's a much better size class, imo, and it'd also be cheaper for me to get ahold of, lol. The only TF figure that's larger than an Ultra that I can see myself buying anytime in the next two years is the Supreme class Animated Omega Supreme that was rumored a while ago, though even at that I'm hoping he gets a Voyager class figure instead.

    I love the Leader Class Prime (with some custom paints and reprolabels for more movie accuracy), but I hope that they change the transformation to be closer to the movie. If they can take Deluxe Dropkick's upper body transformation for the Leader Class Prime... with a few tweaks on the leg transformations, I think it'd definitely be worth buying him again.

    Please be Jetfire, please be Jetfire.

    A Leader class Blackout would also rock, but seeing as he was destroyed in the first movie, I'm doubting it.
