Leadfoot was THIS close to getting the magic number goddamnit
Damn. That reveal came out of nowhere!
So much for waiting for Fans First Fridays for getting news. They just do it whenever.
Getting to Leadfoot himself I think he looks great! Obviously a little simple but the included Steeljaw is cool.
A bummer that he is a target exclusive as that will make it harder for people outside of the US to get him.
But, hooray!!! More studio series figures and a chance to buy a character that never saw a release stateside in 2011!!!
Edit: Pleased to find out that this was my 2,000th post here on the site. Glad it was about something positive and exciting.
Leadfoot looks a little simple, but I like it! Love the potbelly look they pulled off.
Looks like his 'doors' fold inside the back like Roadbuster, wonder if he's a heavy retool/based on that transformation skeleton.
STEELJAW!!! THEY INCLUDED STEELJAW!!! Maybe this is a chance that we’ll get more characters that weren’t necessarily in the movie!
oh god please Studio Series Breakaway
Further thoughts on Leadfoot now that the hype's died down for me:
Robot mode looks basic... but that ain't a bad thing! He reminds me of Swindle from the 2007 line. Looks like he has two missile sets (which also seem to be connected via ball-joints) and four guns. Gonna be a pain to keep them all. Steeljaw looks nice, although kinda worried that he'll be a brick. Don't know how they'll differentiate him from the AOE Steeljaw (if that actually gets a release). Vehicle mode, while it doesn't look as nice as the HA one from the DOTM line, still looks alright... probably might just get used to him like I did with Roadbuster. Definitely purchasing, if at least just to give Roadbuster a friend to bust heads with.
...Now I'm worried about which unlucky character's going to get 69.
Fans will be saying now they are finally getting a Deluxe Leadfoot. Now we just need one last Red Sports Car to be released.
9 years later we finally get all three Wreckers in consistent weaponised modes. Awesome.
I had my doubts about Studio Series when the line began but heck, this line is amazing now.
Holy shit. A random Studio Series reveal?! Will wonders never cease?
This looks so good. It’ll be nice to have the Wreckers that actually look consistent with each other. I’m not surprised it’s a Target exclusive, it I hope it’s easy to come by. And hopefully Target doesn’t botch the pre-order for the figure like Walmart has done with their figures.
What a nice surprise!
Probably won't be available in my country but its still very cool. I like how he looks and he even comes with that tiny dog Steeljaw robot!
"Amazing. A booby trap that actually catches boobies."
My gawd he looks beautiful.
How long has it been since we had a reveal for Studio Series?
I guess Leadfoot makes it up.
There's really only one true option
I knew it was false when i saw kingdom runabout
6 months too long from NYTF (iirc) in February... or around half a year
He looks decent, and he's fully loaded.
They didn't even mention when in stock.
