    I seriously doubt it. BBTS has it for about $120.00 I think? Damn Takara gets all the good stuff!

    That deluxe Leadfoot looks awesome!! Do you guys know if Deluxe Leadfoot is suppose to be another Target exclusive or just mass retail release? I hope it's a mass retail release, these store exclusives can be a pain in the ass to hunt... *cough*Spacecase*cough*...

    These are photos of the Hasbro one, so it could go either way. I don't see the issue with them doing it with the logos, but maybe they won't to play it safe.

    I was assuming Japan wouldn't get the target logo just because there is not targets here and even the dotm deluxe roadbuster was missing one sponser that the hasbro version had.

    lol @ all the complainers about the small pictures, at least we have something to look at. if you spent at least 30 seconds trying to make something out of the picture you'd see some of the differences between the rotf leader and the new striker mold.

    The low price point/case assortment thing that US retailers tie Hasbro to is the very reason why its not getting a Hasbro release.

    US toy prices are already artificially low. With the Dollar soft, raw materials and labor going up, they have to cut corners to get Leader class toys out for 40-45.

    This has more paint more accessories. It costs more to make than a standard leader toy.
    US retailers wont pay extra because of it so why would Hasbro bother?

    I guess some of us are still waiting for a Hasbro version,of Buster Prime?

    In brief: you can blame the,'every day low prices' thing for why Hasbro almost definitely will not release this.

    I'm going out on a limb here and guessing that that pic of the stealth force mode is a concept. I bet they are going to incorporate the shield he comes with as some sort of stealth force overlay for the figure. I don't see them reworking ROTF leader class to make a believable stealth force mode but I could be wrong. I can't tell either if he has the premium paint job or not. I would like to know if he has the Jetwing Modifications to wear the jetpack properly.

    Small pic is still small even when enlarged. When will Takara stop dicking around and give us an actual decent large photo of this guy dammit!

    ^ This. The stealth force image looks like a movie concept image, complete with the 3 in the upper right corner.
