In the latest in a line of formerly Asia exclusive Transformers making their way across the Pacific, the Movie series GDO Ironhide and Starscream Leader class recolors - sporting decos based on their Generation 1 releases - are Canada bound. Listings (linked above) have popped up on the Canadian Toys R Us website. Plus, new and official pictures are up for your perusal.

Will these two movie series Leaders also make it to the US or will they stay north of the border? Reports indicate that they will also grace store shelves in the US so keep an eye on the Toys R Us US website and your local store shelves.

Nice Catch! $45 pre-ordered is a damn nice price. Anyone else also notice that prime voyagers also had a price drop to $20.97. Wonder if this online only or store/site wide

Canada's pricing doesn't always follow the US.

But $45 each beats $99 each on BBTS.

Now if the Voyagers were available for US pre-order... I'd be more excited. I want that Powerdive!

Wonder if the iGear Ironhide head would fit on this guy... >_>
Arkitect76
can the US preorder from TRU Canada?

OOPS....didnt realize they will also be in the US....lol

Nope, I can use a US address for billing but not shipping.
Lazerwave
I can't believe it!

They have these but they have not released the Asia Exclusives Deluxe Movie All Stars at all.
Noideaforaname
US release? Awesome!
Kinda tempted to get that Starscream because I love the mold so much and it'd be nice to have one version where I don't have to get all paranoid about possible GPS. Though the spots of bright blue are kinda weird.
gokuz23
totally picking up Starscream as i never got his Leader Class Figure and i LOVE G1! and $45 in canada means it will be cheaper here right? Even Sweeter!
Arkitect76
....and i was about to pull the trigger on these overseas...just saved myself some bucks...
Snake_eyes1975
AWESOME! I so want those...and Megatron too! PALEEEEEEEZE release megatron here!
konrathink
Fugly mess.
PcPrime23
I just wanna know if the dark energon leader class Megatron will come to the US. I need a leader Megatron for my collection
Sideswipe1954
I wonder why DOTM packaging instead of the Generations red packaging
StayingInTheBox
I'd pick up the Ironhide Leader on discount for sure. Looking forward to seeing him in stores.
UltimusPrime
I want a pair in DOTM Packaging. They just look OFF in that Generations packaging.

The article on TFW's front page for this is rather confusing. The title states they're coming to US TRU's too, but the article itself doesn't suggest that it's for certain.

I'm waiting for someone to generate a UPC and scan it at TRU. They should be in the system shortly ...
Barricade24
Awesome! This saves me a ton of money.

Um no... LOL.. Canadian and American dollar are trading at basically the same rate
Autovolt 127
I'm not sure If I should even bother with them at all.

I do like the G1 Starscream deco on the Leader class but I have a MISB HFTD Leader Class already.

Yeah,I don't like either one.

It just doesn't make sense to take the movie figure and paint it in their G1 colors when the actual character looks nothing like the original G1 figure.

That's just me though.
cobra zartan
Thanks for the heads up!
Heavynova
So, can people finally stop bitching that Ironhide and Starscream weren't in their G1 colors in the movies? Now you get to see what they would have looked like, and it wouldn't have been pretty.
fake
I gotta say Pass on this one. I dont like the movie figures, period. And these figures make no sense.
Bahamut Prime
Interesting prices - wonder if they'll arrive in Australia? BTW, even though I should have noticed before, but like the burn marks on Starscream's vehicle mode!
Billzilla
Preordering from TRU: The surest way to not get something.
RedAlert Rescue
I like them both I wonder if the Black Megatron will show up too. If the Brawl Mould is still available i'd quite like a Tankor blue one.
silverbolt25
when r the figures going to be here??? i got leader ironhide i just got to get leader starscream... i better start saving my money
Composite Ghost
If these are coming to North America maybe I preordered that Classics Seeker set a bit too soon.

It's only $45 in Canada right now beacause TRUs having a 30% sale on all TFs(Oct12-Oct18)

US release? Thank you Hasbro! Seems they're making quite a few good decisions this year

Buying Starscream!

That Ironhide is about 5 years too late for me to care.

Agreed on that one. Doesn't look that appealing at all anymore.

I could see a possible purchase of the Leader Starscream, but maybe if I sell off my Voyager version from the first film. Don't need two G1 re-decos of movie figures.
eagc7
though i dont live in canada and USA, i am happpppy there will be more movie figures!!!

yeah man, releasing old movie molds, repainting more old figures rather than giving us breakdown, jet vehicon, voyager unicron, a new mold of Prime smokescreen.. etc.

i see this as them going in the wrong direction.
Aeronnz
These figures look pretty sweet. Might pick them up if I ever see them in stores...
sh002
Pass
charsdc2
Pass! Bay bots in G1 colors? That's a no, no!
gothsaurus
I'm glad the Bayverse line didn't START OUT like this. If everyone was in their G1 colors, I might have been tempted to buy them all... then be a completist with the movie lines.

Instead, when the movie line came out, I was put off by the non-G1 colors (and voices, and faces, and personalities) and I skipped four years of toys. Now, it's way too late to get me to jump on board.

Funny, because four years ago I would have REALLLLY wanted these versions... just as being some small nod to the old G1 fans.
Megatron118
When we first heard of these, I was excited. Not anymore. I'll stick with my mpm-01 Starscream and black Ironhide
tfpro
Ironhide looks nice.

Starcream's knee joint is a horrible color mashup. Why does Hasbro insist on doing authentic battle wear on the wings when the rest of him crafted in dull grey plastic? It's a shame.
