Ditto. They should have a Mech Tech pack, I think a lot of people would buy those.

nice molds and all, but we have at least 5 bumblebees in every movie, so multiply that by 3!
GOD STOP IT ALREADY!

I am still disappointed with Ultimate Prime. He looks silly in the combined mode. Well I guess that saves me 80 dollars.

Ultimate Prime will be mine. I likes it when I first saw it, and like it even more now.

It's good to see Ultimate Prime and the Leaders sort of in the same shot to get a gauge of his size. Although, it would have been nice to see Prime without the armor for comparison. Is he Leader size, or slightly smaller to accommodate pricing and the trailer? It would be cool if the trailer were to look good with ROTF Prime since he is the mold so far.

You know.....Since those eyes are reddish/orange...and sort of Decepticon-ish looking...I'm half tempted to pick this up, paint all the yellow parts electric blue and call it Nightracer, since she was in essence a Bumblebee repaint. Not enough female Deceps.

I bit the bullet and got him off eBay from China, got him a couple of days ago - out of all the movie Ironhides I have, his robot mode is the best - the cannon on his right arm is too small though (done in order to be absorbed into the 'roof' in altmode)
I gotta say though, the altmode is the disappointment for me - where the previous movie Voyagers were good in atlmode (when you finally got all the pieces to line up), this Leader altmode is poor, at best.
Plain clear plastic for some of the windows/windshield (with body parts clearly visible inside), the 2 rear sides and rear screen are non-existent, just molded plastic that fold down as part of the arms (a job for Reprolabels, perhaps?) and front wheels that won't even sit right when the vehicle is placed on a flat surface (they tilt inwards on a hinge that you can see head-on in robot mode)
As with all the DOTM stuff I have got so far, I always feel slightly cheated (either size-wise, or mode-wise) in that I feel like the individual product is not 100%.
