Think we'll ever see a widespread Deluxe Leadfoot release?

    Title sums up the question. I personally think that there's a slight chance that we'll see him pop up in the AoE Generations line.

    It would be nice but I'm afraid that ship has long since sailed. If it was ever released, I would hope for a Target release so we can get him complete with the Target logos.

    There's a few things still unnamed in the Takara AD line, IIRC...Maybe just maybe, perhaps with sponsor logos this time.

    Hasbro, it's actually a fairly complex toy and i don't see it passing their 'new improved simplified' (see cheaper to make) costing model.

    For you guys, I hope so. He is a solid little thing. You guys would love him.

    I hope that since he was shown being assaulted by the Attinger's forces in AoE that there's a chance that we'll see a toy made of him. I mean after all, out of all the bots they could have shown footage of, why Leadfoot? I'm sure fans would have appreciated a cameo from Sideswipe more.

    You'd think after all the movieverse KO'ing that's gone on that they'd have gotten to deluxe Leadfoot by now.... come on china.

    That's the main reason I think there's a slight chance of him showing up in a random giftset or something, especially if Target does any more exclusives.

    Glass-half-empty take though,
    maybe Hasbro requested Leadfoot expressly so they could kill off the character and avoid Hasbro being stuck with a character whose alt mode contains a corporate sponsor's logo on it that limits where you could sell it to, while keeping other characters (like Sideswipe, Dino/Mirage or even one of the other Wreckers) in their hip pocket for later films should they want to bring them back.

    No. We'll never see the barely released or unreleased DOTM stuff at this point. They're not going to go back and get licensing for stuff based on an older movie in a series that is continually getting worse.

    I think Leadfoot has a chance in the Takara Movie Advanced series. They released Deluxe Soundwave and Dispensor there.

    I don't think so either. You're better off buying the japanese version of purchasing an armored Topspin, painted it red, and doing the custom transformation to make him your leadfoot.

    They probably tossed the mold already, even though they seem to hold on to certain ones forever.

    If it was released it certainly wouldn't have the Target on it I am sure that license has went away by now that they had for that one figure.
