    I was thinking recently - Do you think a Leader Class for the Prime line will ever be considered? Recent toylines based on shows usually have them (most recent being Animated)... Will Prime turn out to be different?

    I don't think a Leader Class Optimus or even Megatron would be necessary... But a Skyquake or
    Unicron
    would ROCK.

    Thoughts?

    If we have one, Bumblebee will probably be one of them.

    According to shadow2879, there are two season 1 related TFP Leader figures in the works, though he hasn't said who either one is yet. Unicron would be great, but I'm not sure they would make a toy of him. As for Skyquake, he's lucky to be getting a Voyager, imho, and I would be extremely shocked to see them do a Leader of him.

    I'm going to melt a DOTM leader Bumblebee in an oven if there isn't leader Bumblebee for this series.

    I'm not sure if there are even any Leader class toys I'd be interested in buying. Maybe Unicron, but ehhhh.

    I'd go for a Unicron, but I'm not sure about if I'd go for anybody else.

    There will probably be leader class Optimus and Megatron, like in almost every line. But I'm planning on just sticking to deluxes and voyagers for this line.

    I personally hope to see an Optimus. Although we got one in ROTF, it seems quite a while since we've gotten a Leader Optimus Prime. Megatron would be a solid addition as well.

    I wish they'd forget leaders for this and just give us some Ultras. I reckon leaders of Prime and Megatron won't fit with any other toys, but the Voyagers won't be big enough aswel.

    I would seriously hope for a Megatron and can see it happening. The two-pack Megs looks pretty much spot on to the animation, but he is so small and Megs is such a hulking beast on the show that he deserves to be bigger, hence the Leader treatment.

    This Megs of the best Megatron incarnations in years. I'd love to have a huge one to add to my collection.

    Hm, Hard to say. Give me a few days to think about who should be a leader class.

    The only characters I currently want as Leaders are Megatron and Optimus since they're so freaking huge.

    A Unicron Leader would be nice but I'd prefer a Supreme considering how large he is compared to them. Skyquake could have also been a leader but I think we're lucky to be getting him as a voyager so I won't complain.

    We should think of other characters because what if it weren't Optimus and Megatron like everyone hopes or predicts.

    Well they said season 1 characters and outside of those two I don't really think anybody would be fitting as a leader.

    Maybe Unicron but I'd prefer he get a Supreme.

    I would love to see some leaders other than Bumblebee and Optimus. A Starscream leader would be nice...but I know that won't happen
