    I can try a mockup later but I think Prime's eyes would be level with the base of Magnus' neck. It's not a pronounced height difference.

    They're playing with height more. Sideswipe is close to Voyager height but has less depth. Hound is the same size class as Sideswipe but shorter and includes a transforming weapon.

    Shockwave could be a leader due to needed transformation depth/complexity but a Voyager sized figure packed with a throne or Reflector triplets.

    Ok I know these aren't siege toys But this puts some things to rest. Remember that Leader jetfire and megatron listing from amazon Well I did more research into them, and I seemed to found a whole studio series wave. Their listings come right after the leaked voyager bonecrusher and Prime from months back. so I think its safe to say they're not siege. Leaving one leader unaccounted for in the line, there is only one leader listing left that leaked..... Optimus Prime (E4522, AUD 74.71) This seems to be our last leader for siege. I'm thinking most likely it will reuse the magnus cab and do a power up gimmick (hoping for galaxy force prime)

    For anyone interested the studio series numbers

    With regards to Skytread, i personally think Hasbro will (and if they haven't they should have) created two new legends molds for this, so that with these and the other two that make up battle trap they could with a little retooling and jiggling about have a landcross retool down the line.

    Too bad we're not getting a leader Skyfire for Siege then.
    He would have been perfect for Siege.

    Based on the Battle Masters in the previous picture, I re-scaled Magnus and Prime to be at the same camera distance and then re-scaled promo shots to match the same head size.

    This should be a decent scale approximation.

    Some cool stuff I’m hoping to see:

    - Voyager/Leader Shockwave (all but confirmed)
    - Deluxe Cybertronian Wheeljack (confirmed)
    - Legends/small deluxe+accessories Cybertronian Bumblebee
    - Voyager Tetrajets (confirmed)
    - Voyager Rainmakers- hopefully an exclusive Amazon set or something
    - Voyager Seeker guards- same as above
    - Omega Supreme (rumoured)- G1 base mode please
    - Legends Cliffjumper
    - Legends Goldbug (VW beetle mode)- unlikely due to Cybertronian theme
    - Legends Eject- c’mon Hasbro he’s right there
    - Legends Steeljaw
    - Legends Ratbat
    - Targetmaster/Legends Slugfest
    - Deluxe Lancer
    - Deluxe Greenlight
    - Deluxe Elita One- watch them spring this on us after giving us the POTP voyager
    - Voyager Alpha Trion- old non-buff man
    - Deluxe Red Alert
    - Deluxe Bluestreak (I have the CW Prowl and Smokescreen rip)

    - The Ark micromaster playset- Haslab?

    Irrrr......IDK about Hasbro entertaining his IDW "Senator" story since it would likely mean that the Voyager part would be his Pre-Shadowplay version, while the Suit would be an oversize G1 Shockwave (which is a pass for me). Plus they haven't been Showing Robert's lore any real love anyway so why start here (and not Rung, Spark Eaters, Pharma or the DJD)?

    Now a "Voyager G1 Shockwave" with an "Energon Shockblast Suit" (that more people would recognize) would be more plausible.

    one point to remember for skytread/flywheels, its likely he will be a two legend duocon with bot modes like battletrap. reason being is that warden said they would reuse prime wars gimmick engineering where necessary. battletrap uses the head of the leg half as the connection plug and to serve as a waist joint. id say its a safe bet skytread will use the same plug/port system and might even be compatible with battleslash and road trap as a cross combining sort of thing

    Omega is most likely to be the ark
    Any legends are likely to be duocons , trottlebots can get away with this.
    As for tape bots it's tough, but check the up coming exclusives...

    Rainmakers are a great pick for exclusives and sunstorm, though rumors point to a tall deluxe like ironhide

    Since we're getting a cog & sixgun to go with fort max & metroplex its likely that the next weaponizer is going to be either wipeout or most likely brunt to go with trypticon.

    I'm hoping we get some more repaints
    In this line & these are some ideas who they could repaint deluxe wise with new heads.

    Jazz- boss, stepper, sg treadshot,

    Wheeljack slicer, exhaust

    Sideswipe- sunstreaker, clampdown, tiger tracks, deep cover, armada Wheeljack

    Hound- hotshot, crankcase, roadtrap (yeah I know he's legends figure that was meant for battle I just thought they mold would look cool for him & plus that sweet headsculpt), scorch, trailbreaker, smoulder

    Chromia- Arcee, Elita-1, lancer, greenlight

    Impactor- stalker, BM tankor, quake

    I didn't even think about there being a possibility that he could have Shockblast armor but that'd be awesome. Nice way to get an Energon homage in the line too.

    I know this line skews further from IDW, but there's also the possibility he could come with Onyx Prime armor, which would be pretty sweet. I will admit that I like your idea better, though.

    Also, are we certain all leaders will have an armor gimmick?

    That's an awesome idea. He already resembles a Super Mode for the G1 version;

    [​IMG]

    And that way it would be both a Voyager AND Leader Shockwave, sort of. I'd vastly prefer that to Senator/Onyx forms.

    Voyager Soundwave, a triple changer? Robot, Boombox, and Jet.

    I'd buy it. I doubt he'd be a triple changer though, unless it's robot-to-boombox-to-lamp post, as per Warden's "gimmicks to characters they'd make sense on" claim for Siege. The jet could be justified as a TF Cybertron homage though. ;^)

    I mean this as a joke- but you are crazy if you think the majority of your suggestions in that post, and other posts, ever have a chance of fruition.
