    if it meant we finally get a Leader Class Blackout? would be good for 3 uses-Blackout, Grindor, and...Vortex maybe?

    I hope we get another Blackout clone, but they still dont make a toy for him.
    The rage has been delicious.

    I honestly cant see Hasbro doing it for a character as unimportant as Blackout/Grindor/Grindout.

    I hope there's a Blackout clone in the next film, and that Hasbro make him as a Deluxe.

    Malicious.

    I love it.

    I'd say no Blackout clone in TF3, for the simple fact that people would start catching on that roughly the same robot has been in and died in the prior two movies. And while we (the fans) would probably know why and have tons of official and/or fan-made explanations for it, the general public would be lost.

    So no Blackout.

    No more movie Blackout versions for TF3, please. I don't see what him being in the next movie has to do with whether they'd make another toy of him though. I'm pretty sure Bee whacked Barricade in the first movie and they're making a HA version of his dead a$$.

    I do want them to have another Blackout clone in the next movie, but only if they also put the time into making a new mold for the design. Doesn't have to be a Leader, just something new and improved compared to the old Voyager. Would be great if they started to make new Ultra class molds for the movie lines.

    I'll go ahead and say it.

    Only if the toy is leader class.

    Toy opinion aside, the movie model of blackout will probably show up in TF3. Bay recycles a lot of things (aircraft carrier footage for example)

    not no, but hell no.
    mediocre toy at best.
    and a ldr class won't happen because they will save slots for more important molds.

    I'm kind of sick of Blackout in general. I hate the grindor repaint. However I would probably buy a leader class version if it was done well enough.

    I was actually a little confused as to why they went with Brawl as a Leader Class fig in the first.

    I hope they bring back the design. I actually hope Bay makes it an army of Pave Low 'cons in the next flick, and that they DO make a Leader class toy. Then all the people that were begging for it go broke trying to recreate said army out of $40+ figures and I'll have a good laugh and a cup of hot cocoa.

    Here's the reasoning behind it: reading the script by itself, Brawl is the main Decepticon in the final battle, apart from Megatron. So Hasbro ran with Brawl as the third leader based on that. They have said that had the knew about how prominent and noticeable Bonecrusher and Blackout were in the movie itself, they would have been given bigger toys.

    Gotcha. I just started collecting when the first movie was out, so I wasn't reading up on stuff and just thought, "Well, if there's a Leader Brawl, then there's no doubt a giant Starscream or Ironhide will be out soon."

    Thanks for the info!
