    Grimlock's a beauty, no doubt, but he doesn't "wow". He's the same basic design as he was 25 years ago.

    Starscream (along with Leader Prime) is an engineering marvel, transferring the impossibilities of the on-screen design into reality.

    I want me a grimlock :thumbs2: 

    Starscream is good but i would have paid £100 for a Leader Class Blackout or Grindor. Heck i would probably pay £100 for a Leader class Bonechrusher with extendable arms for Hugs :p 

    Anyway I vote for a Leader class Grindor or Blackout or basic Helicopter robot for TF3`s toyline. I heard rumors of a Grindor release now my hopes have been dashed.

    Do want!

    Repaint it as Seekers too. I'll buy without flinching.

    This is the toy I can't wait to spend my 45 bucks on. :D 

    Looks like he might equal Leader Prime.

    ...that is one phenomenal looking bot mode. Pop out wrist gatling gun and missiles are a real nice touch. Can't wait to see this beast's alt mode, hopeful it's closer to Prime in screen accuracy then it is to Jetfire.

    Awesome! Can't wait until we see pics of jet mode. I just hope that he doesn't suffer from robot kibble as bad as Jetfire.

    Wow. This might rival Optimus as the "Best Transformer of All Time" if it looks as excellent in jet mode as it does in robot mode, and if looks as good in color as it does in prototype plastic. Hasbro/Takara certainly pushed the limits of Transformers toy engineering with some of these RotF toys.

    We didn't.

    Or maybe because MP Grimlock is supposed to be impressive, wheras Starscream here is a mainline toy.





    Or maybe it has more to do with Mp Grims' being unimpressive.

    He looks small, for a leader, in that last pic.

    OH SNAP.

    But yeah, Leader Class Starscream looks like sex. Let's hope paint doesn't ruin this guy... though to be honest, they could paint him any which way and I'd still buy him.
    Peaugh has mentioned that the abomination of favored characters that is Bumblebee might be getting a Leader Class that's being shipped with Starscream. I say, why Bumblebee when you can Blackout or The Fallen?

    Because Bumblebee is a character everyone knows and loves while Blackout is a nameless Bad guy.

    Fallen could have Leader potential. In fact, for a guy who has a movie named after him, I'm surprised he hasn't had more than one figure. (then again, he's not actually a Transformer)

    I don't know if The Fallen's anorexic body could stand having a big ol' electronics box jammed into it.

    He's also gotten the Legends and Robot Heroes treatment.

    That's the harsh truth.

    This is the first I've heard about this rumor. I'm not sure whether to believe it or not. Don't know where a Leader Bumblebee would fit in my collection and budget, and we've already got the Human Alliance one! That said, I think it would have some big potential.

    But Starscream didn't have a lot of screentime in the first movie. Nor is he a very popular character.
