Pre-orders have appeared for the Transformers Movie Premium Series Leader Class Megatron and Optimus Prime have appeared at Entertainment Earth, confirming that both figures will get a mass release.

This follows our earlier report in the week about the Premium Series Deluxe figures also getting a mass release.

Premium Series Prime will come with a new weapon, a retractable blade, as we reported here, and a resculpted head, whilst Premium Megatron is also expected to have a resculpted head.

Perfect! I preorderd these because I'm tired of trying to track them down in Walmarts, etc...

Bumblebee's resculpted head features battle-mode mask.

Does this mean a resculpted Prime's head will show his shiny lips and tiny teeth? :shock:

Well that’s good, maybe I can call up the rest of my Scalper legion troops and see if I can start limiting how many of these you people can find because I’m the evil scalper! with my army of scalpers secretly placed among each state and even Canada …

I'm not too happy about this habit of Hasbro squeezing every drop of juice out of the same mold over and over again.

Eventually, this scheme could work against Hasbro.

People will be holding back from buying the initial releases. (Which are critical for the success of a toyline.)

Please, that Megatron mold doesn't deserve to be released again. But since I didn't get him the first time.. i'll probably do it this time.

I doubt they could make them much more expensive than they allready are for the european market (prays that they arrive here too) so I'm looking forward for them.

I think so too.

I remember when I used to spend 30 bucks on single disk new release dvds like a chump.

Does Megatron have anything else going for him besides a new head and coat of paint?

Out of all the Premium figures I'll only get Prime, Ironhide, and JAzz if he's mass released. Mind you as rip-off as the Premium concept it at least they're releasing Prime and Megs at mass retail.

If I recall Jazz will be mass released, except in a three pack with Masked Bumblebee and Barricade.
