    So from what we've seen so far:

    Deluxe:
    Topspin-Armored
    Roadbuster-Normal

    Cyberverse:
    Topspin-Normal
    Roadbuster-Armored
    Leadfoot-Armored

    Human Alliance:
    Roadbuster-Armored
    Leadfoot-Normal?

    So it makes me wonder-the Deluxe Leadfoot, HA Topspin (assuming we get him), what do you think they'll be?

    I'm keeping my fingers crossed for normal Leadfoot. But even if they make him armored, I'll still get him.

    i'm hoping normal too cause it will probably be easier to make him look chubby, though i think it'll be the opposite of his HA toy, which (as far as i can tell) s more of a normal thing than anything else

    Armored up deluxe Leadfoot is all I am looking for now. As for HA Topspin, I think he will be teched out but that's just my opinion.

    Personally I'm hoping Deluxe Leadfoot is armored-up, though if done right I wouldn't mind it being normal looking. As for a possible HA Topspin, I honestly don't really care either way, as there is little chance I would get him, but if I had to take a guess, I would say he'll probably be armored-up. We'll just have to wait and see.

    The one picture we've seen if the alt-mode makes it really clear that he has the "normal" alt-mode configuration.

    I just wish Hasbro picked one and stuck with it: normal or armored. It kinda peaves me that they are like "Lets make Roadbuster normal and Topspin armored! As for Leadfoot, we'll leave them guessing!"

    I want that Steeljaw figure to be released as a Cyberverse. Hate to have to pay $30 just for him alone.

    I'm not too big on the HA figures because I'm someone who concerns with scale. Why pay $30 for Leadfoot when a $12 version will be released.

    I'm hoping they made two sets of parts for each mold, so we eventually get all three in both normal and armored in deluxe size.

    They'd have to make a completely new mold to do that. Slight retools like head sculpts and minor details isn't an issue, but something like that wouldn't be feasible for Hasbro to do.

    Honestly, as much as I would love to see a teched-out Deluxe class Roadbuster, I'm not sure Hasbro would create two unique molds for each one of the Wrecker's at the same scale. I'd love to be proven wrong though. Especially if the teched-out Roadbuster took it's basic transformation and look from the Legion figure, and kept the same chainsaw weapon the normal version has.

    The more I look at Topspin, the more I'm inclined to agree. I was thinking maybe they could pull a Wheeljack/Tracks type remold, but there's too many parts that would need changed. Alas...

    I'm starting to think Leadfoot will definately be armored, which makes me want an armored Roadbuster even more

    To be honest, I don't care what form he's in, I'll be buying him either way. I kind wish though that he does have that beer gut. I like how Leadfoot looked in those leaked pages from the children's book. I think it'd be cool if his gut had a massive Autobot logo on it.
