Courtesy of the Thai website Toys2mail Station we have images of a Spring 2012 solicitation that reveals what appears to be an Asian release of the 2007 Transformers movie line Leaders Optimus Prime and Megatron in a two-pack. The solicitation has August 2012 listed as the release date. They have also posted a mock-up of the set in the DOTM Optimus Prime/Jetfire two-pack packaging. The price works out to around $210.00. We will attempt to find out more information about this somewhat unusual listing. Images mirrored below.

Reminds me of the Cybertron Prime + Crumplezone pack. I would expect a wacky redeco but it doesn't look like it.

What an odd choice. I have that Megatron, I love it, really. I replaced that Optimus with the ROTF version, which is far superior. Just a really odd choice.

The price? Terrible. They aren't worth $210.00, even together.

^ fixed with my opinion.
In general, I expect to pay *less* for a box set than I would for the individual figures.

Moreover, these molds are, in my opinion at least, pretty awful. I guess Leader Megatron is alright, but the first movie Leader Prime is nowhere near as nice as the Rotf and onward version.

Exactly. I'll give Megatron more credit, this time. Megatron's design in the movie wasn't exactly toy friendly. Making it work, plus retaining his gun gimmick, transformation, plus Automorph, is nothing short of a miracle. Is it perfect? No. But I'd be hard pressed to do a better job, really.

Optimus, on the other hand, his truck mode wasn't great (what with all of that weaponry junk sticking out), his robot mode was even worse. His design was more pleasing to the eye, so why didn't he receive more detail work?

Odd choice of molds... They should have gone with ROTF megs and prime instead, I own the 2007 prime, he was great.. but the ROTF one is better. Megatron still looks great.

But again, I highly doubt this will sell, just because of the high pricetag. Not many parents would fork out $200 for a kid's toy at one shot. Besides, this seem like a Takara release, or were they too lazy to shop out Takara's logo? Last time a few departmental stores here imported the Buster/Jetfire 2 pack, did not sell at all.

Two outdated figures that weren't too great to begin with for 210 bucks? Are they nuts? If they want us to buy movie Leader Class figures give us a DOTM Leader Class Megatron, Shockwave or that Blackout we've been asking for since the first movie came out.

Interesting. I wonder why they would keep the original paint instead of going with "Premium" series paint. I already have two "Premium" Megatrons and a regular and buster prime, so this is a pass unless Megatron got completely chrome/metallic paint which doesn't seem to be the case.

At any rate I would also rather have leader DOTM Megatron, or more accurate ROTF Megatron, Shockwave, or even Blackout. They already have good molds for Prime and movie 1 Megs and have already sold plenty, so it's time to get to something new.

I'm sure the final product will be repaints with chrome galore, and I'll bite with that being said.

I expect there to be some changes form the orginal products. Given the age of the molds and that price...
