I like the new head sculpt. Hopefully I'll be able to get this and/or Stealth Bumblebee.

The more I see these, the less I want them.

HASBRO may be losing big on this one. Hardcore collectors will buy, but I cant see the average mom and dad springing for these after they just bought "Billy" the first edition, and had a heck of a time finding it to boot.

But on the other hand what if Billy couldn’t find the first one and never got it? The movie line has done so well you could probably put crap in movie packaging and someone would buy it.

The paintjob is a bit more accurate, but i guess that's all.
This not badass. It's so BAD, it's ASS!

Then why are deluxe models headed for clearance at most major market area stores? I can find at least two Leader Brawls and Megs at local Kmarts and Wallys everytime I go.

Heck even Rescue Ratchet gets no love.

Well now even in the “drought” I had no problem finding leader class figures and its January so kids aren’t going to be buying much.
