    C'mon Hasbro.


    Blackout was easily one of the most popular characters from the movie, all my non-tf friends even knew he was the most awesome. However, Starscream, the character with next to no screen-time, and one that does not blow a military base up, and Jetfire, geriatric old man-bot that I have no idea who would want both get leaders.

    If hasbro's worrying about Blackout not selling well, that's not a problem. He was hugely popular, and he marked his place into TF history with that beginning 10 minutes. What I'm saying is,

    Why won'y Hasbro show Blackout the love?

    Never.

    Seems like Repetitive Thread Syndrome has spread beyond Movie Discussion!

    Yeah, the leader blackout threads are starting to become the "Jazz lives!" of the toy board.

    There are a multitude of reasons why a Leader Blackout would suck but I'm getting tired of repeating them at this point. It can be summed up by saying "making a figure bigger does not magically solve its engineering difficulties".

    But it would make him bigger.

    Bigger = Usually better

    Hi it's Vince with Usually!
    You'll be saying wow, sometimes when you use this word.

    That's why I said usually. Not everything is better bigger.

    Well, maybe Texas.

    It's never going to happen.

    Ever.

    Just like Leader Lugnut.

    Move on with your life.

    Can we let this go, already?

    And the Voyager is fine, IMO. I'd buy a Leader Blackout, if it was well-done, because I always like a good toy...but I don't really care if we never get one.

    In answer to the thread title: Likely never. It's not happening for the current movie toyline, and doubtful for anything further.

    Also, because I like to nitpick, the poll is wrong. Blackout did not die in both movies. Grindor was the helicopter that died in the second movie...Grindor just happens to be identical to Blackout.

    In conclusion: ...*sniff* I feel so lonely because I actually really like the Voyager. :'(

    Voted "hells yeah," as I love Blackout.

    Chances of it actually happening--close to 0.0000001%.

    And, oh yeah::horse:

    To everyone who says, it's never gonna happen...
    Hasbro would Never Give us up,
    Or let us down,
    they would never run around, and desert us.
    They would never make us cry,
    they would never say goodbye,
    they would never tell a lie (Okay... maybe.)
    Or hurt us.
