I am currently waiting for Shockwave and HA Roadbuster to hit my local TRU and also waiting for more pics of HA Soundwave and confirmation on HA Topspin.
kibble everywhere?? you're kidding right? he's got a couple panels on his arms. and so what if the transformation isn't a giant messy puzzle.. you're going to skip out on one, if not the best figure of the line so far just because of a couple panels on his arms that aren't even all that noticeable when you have him in hand? .. you're missing out big time. leader ironhide is awesome. very awesome. it puts all of the voyagers and deluxe to shame. you should at least give him a try, then return it if you don't like it.
i got mine at costco for $35. i love it.

voyager primes feet are "so accurate"? not really. leader primes feet are SOO accurate. the voyager has the proportions all wrong.
it's a shame they couldn't have just tweaked the hftd voyager prime mold a bunch and given us that.. like add his new parts and try to improve upon that design. i really just can't bring myself to like voyager prime.

That's a hell of a reason not to buy a toy. 2007 Optimus didn't look like his CGI version, nor did 2007 Starscream (bearly). Almost half of the figures of the bayverse line don't come 70% close to the CGI apperance.
A reasonable determination is on articulation (and kibble amount, I guess), accuracy on how you want the figure to look, and so on. I understand this is your method, and that second reason came close to it, and I don't want to change that. It's just not the best method. Do whatever you want, though. Have a nice time toy hunting

It was Starscream that killed Mirage. Soundwave uses his head as a puppet to torture Bumblebee. As for Wheeljack, um...well, do you want to be spoiled? If so, I'll tell you.
As for Soundwave...no. He's not crushed. That too, I will tell you, but only if you want to be spoiled.
Now, onto the main topic...
I have no desire to purchase the Optimus Voyager mold. Blech. Sentinel just isn't done justice by anything but the Leader Class. It's an excellent figure.
As for Ironhide...he's awful in Leader Class. I think it's great they went for ease so kids could enjoy him, but he's pretty simplistic, and waaaaay out of scale. Not to mention his colors are just awful. He's an easy pass for me. Kinda sad though, I was looking forward to him at one point. =\
