    If it transforms, I will march into Mordor for it.

    Great detailing, but 100% uninteresting for me.

    It might be...mostly because it doesn't sound like it's for sale, or there's only one so it may as well 'not be'. I also doubt it has an alt mode...or at least a 'good' alt mode.

    That looks amazing. And look how huge he is compared to a Leader Class figure! Wish this was a 3P offering (hopefully at a reasonable price) but my gut feeling errs toward this being a custom. I want to be delightfully surprised and wrong though.

    The amount of Leader Prime parts alone lead me to think that it's a custom.

    The picture with RotF Megatron makes him look like an in-progress custom.
    I also have my doubts that this can Transform.
    My bet's on custom.


    All the same, for the right price, I'd put this on my Movie-verse shelf, even if it can't transform.

    That's a custom and there's no way it transforms.

    No transform, no want.

    This is a custom and an old one. You can see the Lego ball joints in the feet.

    I see Bowei Blocks comprising the hands...

    But seriously, I'm a little surprised that not a single 3P group has tackled a Leader Blackout or Bonecrusher. There's still a demand for them from movie toy collectors (even 5 years later). I'd imagine that a Leader Fallen and Shockwave will also be met with plenty of enthusiasm.

    Damnit, I got excited until I saw the leader OP parts. :( 

    Would totally have bought this too. Don't care that it doesn't transform, it looks amazing.

    Damn, wish it were real. I'd pay good money for a Leader-scaled Blackout with HALF that detail...

    I completely agree. I wouldn't even mind if they didn't transform.
