    As the DotM toyline looms forward I still really wish that we got leader versions of Shockwave and Megatron instead of Bumblebee and Ironhide. From what I hear Hasbro wanted to move away from doing Decepticon leader class toys but I don't get why they would do this after the success of Leader Starscream and considering that Shockwave is the villain it continues to not make sense on why they wouldn't give the leader spot to one of the main villains. I know I'm complaining a little bit but still it just bothers me and I hope that in the wind down line for the movie we get Shockwave and Megatron at one point.

    Megatron isn't going to be stuck with only Voyager being his biggest toy. It's friggin MEGATRON. A big name seller.

    Shockwave...not so much. He may be the new big-bad in DotM, but The Fallen was the titular character and his biggest toy was the Voyager.

    "Why can't we have leader class Decepticons?" Is not the right question. ""Why can't we have GOOD leader class Decepticons? Is the right question. Starscream is was a very good one, but Megas is crapppp.

    Movie Bumblebee has become the John Cena of the Transformers world. Women and children love that yellow bastard, while most of us are tired of seeing him everywhere.

    Still to soon to tell. Botcon or Comicon should show more and May I remind you that the DOTM franchise is just beginning. Maybe they will do 3 Autobot leaders and 3 decepticon leaders but who knows.

    Let me get this straight, you guys are cool with Shockwave, the main bad guy, beings a voyager?
    The last I check BOBB and Ultimate BB are SHELFWARMING also HFTD LDR Optimus Prime is too. Meanwhile Starscream is really hard to come by....

    LDR BB will Shelfwarm until 2014....

    I'm hoping for Megatron and Shockwave to be leaders. Hasbro should of replaced Leader Bee with a Leader Megatron. I just hope SHockwave doesn't get stuck with the Fallen syndrome.

    And maybe they'll suprise us with a Leader class we never expected. (Like how they did with Movie 1's Leader Brawl)

    I was surprised when I saw four Leader Starscreams on sale at my local
    K-mart, along with two RotF Jetfires. Leader class figures tend to become
    shelf warmers just because of their price. After all, most parents won't buy
    their kid a $40-50 toy except on their birthday or Christmas.

    They need to bring back the Ultra Class. :(

    Kids LOVE Bumblebee. The bad guys exist so their glorious Bumblebee can have someone to fight. Kids don't want Shockwave, they want Bumblebee.
