    What if Hasbro earns back so much money from the movie, toys and merchandise, That Hasbro decides to release a 5th Leader in the ROTF line.
    Since the 4th Leader IS IN FACT: STARSCREAM
    What other Leader would you have gone for...

    i would go with blackout because the fallen is already really nice.

    I think voyager blackout was crappy. I think the spinning rotor gimmick made that backpack unable to fold up. If they did a leader they could make a more accurate head sculpt and also have the back fold up so only the rotors themselves were on a hinge to fold into place. having that whole back panel would make a lot of pieces able to become other parts... The rear steering rotor could be on the piece of that panel thing that was his arm so he could have his little spinning arm rotor of death thing. I think they could also do his chest cannon. It would definitely make him more accurate, and he would be a lot more fun to have especially with the only kibble (hopefully) being that rotor piece. about the rotor piece i think that having a button to lock it into place (open for vehicle and folded for robot mode) could improve it (especially not having the darn things collapse in vehicle mode.

    The only draw back would be the next series may not have but one leader. and (hoping) that prime and megs will be the leader of the bots and cons (unlike animated) will then call for them to both be leaders like (most ) tf series (but of course not all like armada)

    If the movie line is indeed running in to 2010, Hasbro's "Three Leaders a year" rule may come into play, and we may see two other molds as well.

    However, I expect repaints.

    I doubt Hasbro would ever do a 5th figure, heck the fact ROTF has FOUR leaders exceedes the normal 3 leader mold limit. Plus, Hasbro could abuse the hell out of the Starscream mold and make a buncha more seekers from it like last time and every other time we've has a SS mold (except the supreme class one).

    Wow, I'm surprised hardly anyone has voted for Soundwave or Bonecrusher. A Leader Blackout/Grindor would be nice but Soundwave or Bonecrusher is something I've been waiting for a long time. Those two, plus Starscream (confirmed), are the only reasons I'd buy a Leader.

    Leader #5: Grindor
    Leader #6: Autobot Jetfire (G1 Colors) or Stealth Starscream

    I highly doubt a leader bonecrusher, as only the fans want that.

    I also doubt leader Soundwave, as SPOILERthere is no robot mode in the film END SPOILER

    Honestly, there is not a character in the film - except maybe The Fallen - who I see playing a large enough role to justify the bigger toy.

    I think Leader Class #5 will be an Optimus Prime in darker colors to match up to Jetfire's colorscheme. Probably sold as another "night mission" variation, or possibly as
    Optimus taking the colours as a mark of honour to Jetfire's sacrifice
    .


    I guess Wheelie might be a possibility, actually. He'd be near on 1/1 scale. Hopefully he could also include details like his radar and his bum left eye. Articulated jaws, soundbox with Movie quotes, keep the faction gimmick in the chest.

    Grindor.
    It would look great on with a diorama of Leader Class Megatron, Optimus and Starscream in the forest battle.
    Oh, and spinning nunchuk heli blades would seem pretty cool... with SOUND!

    Phrases include:

    "Dat's my eye you crazy sun-of-uh-BITCH"
    "Dis place is uh frigg'n house of horror'z"

    Wheelie also comes with a mouse trap (fully functioning!) so you can put it on his foot and make him say his final phrase!:
    "SUN OF UH BITCH"

    Blackout/Grindor is a pretty obvious choice. Same design for both movies, and would make him fit in scale better. Bonecrusher should be a voyager IMHO. A larger voyager, but still a voyager.

    Blackout, because his voyager toy was underwhelming.

    Bonecrusher could use a voyager, but a leader would be too much.
    Long Haul, maybe if they did his shoulders right, but I wouldn't expect two separate molds for constructicons (legends dont count)
    The Fallen is pretty much leader-sized in Robot mode.
    Nothing about Soundwave (design or size of role in the movie) makes him a decent candidate for a leader figure...yet.
    Wheelie...maybe,

    DEEP INSIDE I want Grindor, but The Fallen deserves it more.

    I agree.. I think that Grindor or Blackout would be a great figure. He is a really large figure in the movie so I think that it is fitting. MH/CH 53 is a bad ass chopper anyway!
