    God damn I can't wait to get my hands on this figure. Unfortunately I'm in the UK so I have to wait until the 20th of April :(  if possible, is anyone able to post some photos of him next to other movie leader class figures? If so, please keep his legs extended all the way for maximum height! :)

    Actually it was just the angle. He is about 1-2" shorter. Here is a picture from a better angle.

    That's taller than I was expecting him to be. Thanks so much!

    Man. I could quibble about tiny things here and there, but overall, they absolutely knocked these leader figures out of the park. Best quality mainline figures we've gotten in a looooong time. I'm so glad they didn't drop the ball on what will probably be the last versions of these charscters we get for quite a while. Bravo, Hasbro!

    Hm... personally, I like to collapse the double knees all the way. Makes him look much bulkier and in-proportioned and less like a fat man on stilts.

    Sooooooo... is there any way to fix his hands? like maybe cutting them and gluing em in a less stupid position yet still have them function for transformation? they're p much the only thing keeping me from wanting this.

    A simple wrist swivel won't fix his hands. His thumb is in the wrong place. His hands are supposed to be positioned more human-like yet the Leader has crab hands for whatever reason.

    Here's an image of what it's supposed to look like:

    Gads his voice makes my ears bleed. I always have to watch his reviews with the volume down.
    Anyway, the limited articulation has me reconsidering my desire for this figure. Seems like too many sacrifices were made to playabiity just for a good looking bot and alt mode. Both are excellent, but the end product just doesn't seem...fun.

    Hmmm so Blackout is huge in altmode compared to SS Grimmy
    But when bot mode, he's shorter than SS Grimmy
    :lol :

    I feel I should call the collector store to see if they are expecting any shipments of anything this week, but I shouldn't.

    Its not so much that I care about how accurate it is, because ultimately I don't really care for details that minor, its just the position of the hand that bothers me.

    Man. Hasbro was really spoiling us around Revenge Of the Fallen. ROTF Prime, Leader Starscream, Battle Blades Bumblebee, Legends Ravage.

    I think the engineering of this figure is great. He’s just so small.
