That's just the name they came up with.
Between Optimus, Megatron and Starscream, that's 3 Leader classes already. We've discussed this in our Transformers thread a few times and it's just highly unlikely that given the fact that they don't sell very well, Hasbro would be reluctant to spend that much on the tooling for an LC Blackout.
Come on guys, HTS isn't that bad!
By my estimate, I've ordered from them 40 times total and never received anything that I didn't order. The condition of said packages are an entirely different story but the contents have always been correct.
I got this one a few years back. It still makes me laugh.
I'm glad he/she didn't pack my AOTC wave order...geez!!!

OK, there are 4 Leader Classes. Jetfire has even been found some places (Louisiana Target for the one I know of).
LC Starscream is confirmed, but might not be out until Christmas or next year. There might be pictures at Comic Con or the prototype on display at Hasbro's booth.
I would totally want a Leader Class Blackout / Grindor - I'll use him as either, and I totally support there being a Leader Class Fallen - though I'm not really interested in him as a Transformer. The jet-mode doesn't impress me.
I also wonder how big Soundwave is supposed to be (next to other TFrmrs)?
Leader Starscream is slated for Fall of 2010.
Darth Vader is becoming the Mickey Mouse of Star Wars.

The use of a lightsaber does not make one a Jedi, it is the ability to not use it.
