    he tells me 100% positive, and that we shouldn't expect to even see a pic until 1-2 months.

    Neat, but I'm not making any bets until I see prototypes.

    I do like that Jetfire even more, though, the scratched con symbols on the wings along with excelent small decos really makes the alt mode stand out, and I don't care if the bot mode is totally inaccurate since the engines don't really become his legs, he's still an old guy!

    I'd say so, most of the new stuff we see comes from him anyway, and he hasn't been wrong yet.

    Yay, starscream is my most wanted Leader, Can't wait to see what he looks like, hopefully...hopefully...they take the Leader Prime route and make sure this guy is 100% bad ass, however even if he was just an enlarged voyager I would be happy.

    So they'll destroy Starscream's leader figure with pointless electronics and gimmicks, while the voyager figure is excellent by itself.

    No thanks.

    I'd rather have a leader class Blackout.

    Any chance TFW or somebody might mirror the pics? The PC that I'm on blocks the images from that site.

    there are no pics of SS yet, might be a while (like def. not this week, possibly several weeks I am told)

    I think you can request the mirrored Jetfire pics in the respective thread though.

    I guess that's newsworthy info, but I thought the link was for pics of Starscream. You might want to edit your post to indicate that the info is at the very bottom of the page and contains no pics of SS. A lot of people won't read it since they will think the link is to the wrong place.

    I imagine we'll see pics either before, or during Botcon. So anytime between now and Botcon...
