    For both the TF and TF2: ROTF movies, I wish Hasbro/Takara Tomy would release Leader Class versions of all the characters who are featured in the film.

    I'm just not feeling Voyager Class. I would've loved to see characters like Barricade and Blackout in Leader Class level. What do you guys think?

    I honestly don't think leader class figures are worth $45.

    I think that's one of the most unrealistic and, frankly, dumbest ideas ever.

    Leaders should only be larger characters Prime, Megs, Brawl, Blackout, SS etc... I have more of a problem with Wheelie, the Bike sisters, scorponk being deluxe they should be scout. While I love the coolness of Chromia is just looks odd on my wall when u see a bike that's bigger than a Vette.

    NO. Some figures aren't big enough to merit a Leader class figure. A leader class Bonecrusher would be out of scale, but a voyager Bonecrusher would be in scale. Also, with the economy in the shitter, it would be impratical. We're not made of money.

    Can you explain how a Leader Class Bonecrusher would be out of scale?

    Um, a leader class Bonecrusher would be in scale. His mine-sweeper truck mode is just as big as Prime's truck mode.

    NO.

    it would be a line of shelf-warmers, that no retailer in their right mind would ever even order.

    I dont get the obsession this fandom has with making retarded demands for leader class figures. started in 07 with demands for leader class brawl, blackout, bonecrusher, and even goddamn bumblebee. hasbro then released a leader class brawl, but he didnt sell that great. his repaint didnt sell. his repaint was still available a few weeks ago at some local meijers stores. the fans demanded brawl, and didnt buy him. so of course, now they're demanding more giant expensive toys for them to not buy.

    consider the kids. I know this is hard, because many people on this forum make a habit of thinking the adult collectors are the only ones that should ever be catered to. kids cant get a line full of leader class toys. they're lucky if they get one of the three that are being released this year. that would doom this leader-class line to failure no matter how big the fan support was.

    and seriously, asking for leader class barricade? BARRICADE? you think the people who complain about scale are angry enough already? oh hell no, they'd explode if that happen.

    That's what I want.

    However, that's not what we'll ever realistically get.

    Hell, I want a hot date with Milla Jovovich--and that's about as likely.:D

    My head would explode if that happened. And I love Barricade as a deluxe, even.

    Absolutely, 100%, NO! Only the larger and more important bots should be made into Leader class figures, and really, the only one they haven't made that deserves it, imo, is the Blackout/Grindor design. That and Hasbro has repeatedly said in the past that Leaders don't sell as well as the smaller size classes. Which is why they tend to stick to only three unique Leader class molds per year. I think we're lucky enough that we're getting a total of four in this line as it is (Starscream's coming out sometime next year). Which means we'll see at least a total of 8 Leader class figures in the entire line, as there's most likely going to be at least one repaint of each mold, if not two of some of them.
