    should i wait for leader class shockwave or just settle for the voyager? the i try to buy all the figures in scale to how they are in the movie, so its needless to say buying the voyager would disrupt that. but his part in the movie was so small(like bonecrusher who is optimus' size) but then again so was brwl and he got a leader class toy i am trying not to miss out on any figures this time around and have to order them online. do i buy him even though he is out of scale or wait for his possible leader class. what would you do?

    Buy the voyager now. If a Leader is released and it ends up being superior to the voyager, then you can sell off the latter to someone that wants it. Problem solved.

    Buy the voyager (which I have) because I don't expect a leader class Shockwave to be made.

    Get the voyager version now, because there might not be a leader class figure later on.

    Yeah, get the Voyager now and sell it if a Leader one comes along at some point. The Voyager is a pretty cool toy.

    Since the leader has so far only been speculated and wished for... wait for SDCC. If they're making one, we'll probably hear by then. The voyager shouldn't be hard to find in a month's time. Or buy it, keep it sealed and keep the receipt till then.

    The Voyager is a great toy. Buy it and continue to hold out hope for a leader.

    I'm guessing Shockwave is DOTM's The Fallen.
    No alt-mode in the movie, hyped up as the main villain, but falling short to other Decepticons, and only getting a Voyager and a Legends/Legion.

    What you SHOULD do is wrap spoiler tags on your post.....some of us didn't see the movie yet....I'm going Sunday.

    I can't un-see what you said about shockwaves screen time...

    Spoiler:
    It was a spoiler in a way. Those of us who have seen the movie know that Shockwave's role was minor at best, but before seeing the movie I have to say I expected to see A LOT more of him. So by saying he had a small role you're already "giving something away."

    I just got back with mine. Found him (only one left) in the fourth store I tried. Scooooooooore!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Im also about to eat my Bacon Cheese Chicken sammich thing from BK. 7 bucks, jimminy christmas!

    Yes Shockwave, you bastard. You are mine. :) 

    He's goin with my WFC Megatron an Soundwave, an Straxxus is hanging with them.

    I say you should pick him up before its not so easy to waltz in and find. There were TONS of Primes and some white helicopter dude or something Drop bolts or some weird thing.

    Get it while you can brother!

    For whatever reason, the first post read like someone going through a major dilemma, like the friend you went to Vegas with deciding if he should cheat on his girlfriend with that girl in the bar, or trying to choose between drinking the last beer in the fridge before or after you go buy a new case (drinking it before means you have to go get more because that first one wasn't enough, but if you drink it after that means you have to turn down a beer for now and no one wants to ever do that).

    It's not that big of a deal. Get the toy now. We already have 3 Leaders currently out, meaning a new movie Leader wouldn't come out for some time. By then you should easily have the $40 to buy a new toy.

    Considering Bay said Shockave was the main villian, if he has been lucky thus far to avoid spoilers, then what you said is indeed a spoiler.

    Just buy the Voyager.

    I seriously doubt they are gonna waste precious leader space on a character that was barely in the movie.
