    Alright, I know Takara have launched all of the original Classics and Henkai figures into new packaging with new, G1-accurate color schemes. Are they planning on doing the same for Ultra Magnus? Or are they just gonna leave him out of the Henkai toyline?

    It's TakaraTomy. They repaint every Convoy a million times over by default. If they don't make a Magnus, I will be surprised.

    I hope so, out of all the Hasbro Classics deserving of a Henkei treatment Ultra Magnus would be it.

    in all honesty, I'd prefer a 100% white Ultra Magnus if they make one. Then it'd be like the real cab section from G1 Magnus.

    Allow me to clarify. With the city commander armor in the mail for me, I think it would be closer to what the real g1 magnus was to have a wholly white robot in a red and blue suit of armor.

    They did not release Cliffjumper though, and TC/Skywarp are exclusives, so could this mean no Henkei UM?

    I'm still waiting for a Henkei Cliffjumper to be made.

    Not to intrude on UM's parade, but they never made Cliffjumper either, which is a shame.

    Yeah, I'm going to have to echo the 'they still haven't made CJ' statements... couple that with the fact that SW & TC are exclusives of some kind (though, me thinks that might have a lot to do with them being exclusives in the states too...) it makes me wonder if Takara are even interested in doing repaints in the Henkei line. It's possible that they aren't and the only reason that they did SW & TC was because everyone knows that the three original Seekers sell.

    Except for the parts that aren't white, like the thighs and bumpers. But wholly white cab? Yeah, I'd dig.

    There were also variations with the painted face (i.e. red eyes, blue mouth plate).

    Yes, absolutely I'd love an Ultra Magnus from Henkei but not just a white Prime. Come on Henkei, surprise us with something original!!

    The only thing that'd make the color scheme better, imo, is the light blue highlights, and those wouldn't be worth the import price at all

    Well knowing Henkei we'd get Cliffjumper's "Oh Canada!" silver splotches in psychadelic chrome all over his body.

    Wouldn't mind seeing what they could do with Magnus though, especially if they do him in Diaclone colors at some point.

    Did someone say "Diaclone Henkei Magnus"?

    Just kidding; this is just a custom repaint of mine...
    (Yep, I keep whoring these pics out, mainly because it seems that this is what people want to see...)

    With the current price Magnus is going for, I'd definately consider getting the henkei version.
