    I want a LC Megatron pretty badly, but I'm worried we won't get one.

    We are going to be getting some leader class figures already, I believe they're called Powerizers? I don't know about a Decepticon leader class figure though. Was Starscream the last one we got, not including Sentinel Prime?

    correct me if I'm wrong, but i'm pretty sure Weaponizers are more of a HA replacement size-wise.

    I am pretty sure the weaponizers are at the ultra price point, and are not leaders.

    Aren't Weaponizers Ultra sized/priced?

    When does the sub-line where everyone turns into Bumblebee come out?
    You know, Bumbleizers.

    As long as we get a Megatron down the line, I'm happy. The Voyager is great, but he needs to be bigger than Optimus (scale's not a big issue, but Megs always needs to feel imposing to me)

    Yep, not Leader sized or priced. Pretty sure it's 29.99 in the States, info is out though if anyone wants to confirm. I'm positive I read it here.

    Oh they're part of the new line Transformers: Bumblebee.
    You, know the one they're announcing at Botcon, along with the immediate cancellation of Prime.

    Maybe Hasbro aren't doing the Leader size class anymore... I mean apart from Ironhide, DOTM leaders are complete shelf warmers over here...

    Also, when exactly did Leader class actually become 'normal' as it were?

    RID Optimus Prime and Ultra Magnus were 'Leader Class' I suppose, but really they were more like Voyager/Ultra sized figures with extra bits to make a trailer, so not really Leader class (ie, not mahoosive figures)

    Same thing with Armada Optimus Prime, he was the only figure that big from that line (IIRC) but again, he was an Voyager/Ultra figure with superpants. Unicron was his own class, (LOL. IIRC he was like £50 or something when he came out, which I thought was spectacularly expensive).

    I dunno. Leaders as giant single figures only seem to be the norm since the '07 movie, Leader Optimus Prime, Megatron, Devastator/Brawl and honestly, I could do without the class anymore. They're just... too big. I lkied the days when the Leader Price point was for figures with trailers or something like that.

    These days the Leader price is for one big figure, that realistically we're never going to see trailers for, and that sucks. So anyway back to my point, I'd actually be glad if Hasbro no longer do 'Leader' sized stand alone figures.

    Bring back Voyager/Ultras with trailers!

    A bigger Megatron would be cool. Not getting an Optimus until I see a Megatron first.

    Not if you buy them from TRU, lol.

    But yeah, I think they are going to be more HA/Ultra sized (and priced at "sane" retailers).

    Names for the gimmicks, not names for the size classes. Check the packages.

    Apparently THESE ones do have Weaponzier printed on the package.

    Go figure.

    Yeah but apparently they are a new(ish) class with their own pricepoint, unlike deluxevealers and voyagerizers.

    I don't think we'll get Leaders. I think Hasbro and retailers are finally coming to terms with how hard a time they have selling most of them. I'm sure we'll occasionally see more with future lines, but I don't think TFP really needs them.
