Great news! Thanks!

 

So far, I like the look of Leader Prime... Looking forward to more pics...

 

Devastator better knock my socks off, or I may have to pass on $100 bucks... That's alot for a toy.

 

Or can I wait it out till next spring clearance?

 

 

Leader Jetfire sounds nice, too. Hopefully he's not to "hunchbacky".

 

Will he combine with Prime?

 

 

And who is the third Leader class fig? Fallen? Megatron? Or just another Prime repaint?

 

 

Do they count the total number of figs as original molds with or without repaints?

 

 

Sounds good, cant wait for more pics...

6? 6 constructicons? i hope thats a misprint. Because the CGI image revealed that SEVEN form up Devy. This would mean that 1 or 2 of them have half of another vehicle melded into them. UGH

Only 3 leader class molds :(

 

I can't say I'm surprised, but that Prime had better be much, much, much better than the last one (and so far the pictures just look like an equally nice toy to the first time that's just traded one set of problems for another). Other wise that's a big waste of a space when there will probably be ass loads of characters more deserving of a leader class when we already have a very nice leader class Prime.

I'm squirreling away some money for that guy, or if it comes out closer to my birthday, I'll ask for him as a gift. (Gotta love the large families)

I hope so. It's the rumor, and I hope it's true, and it would at least give the Autobots a combiner, even if it's one that we've seen before.

 

And who is the third Leader class fig? Fallen? Megatron? Or just another Prime repaint?

 

Don't know. Probably Megatron. Hope not since he's not in the movie. If it's the Fallen, awesome.

 

Do they count the total number of figs as original molds with or without repaints?

 

Don't know, but I was bored and did the calculations and if one were to purchase every single one (all three leaders, all 11 voyagers, all 24 deluxes and the Devy set), that'd come to a total of $784.61.

 

I didn't count in the extra stuff like the younger kid aimed toys, and the BB helmet.

 

 

 

All in all, it sounds like enticing news. I will stick with my usual collecting formula of on screen only unless it's totally awesome, so that'll cut down on the purchases a little, alone with some other guidelines.

Interesting that there is no mention of the scout price point. Does that mean that the toys we have seen and thought were scouts are actually deluxe class only in price point?
