    Another little tidbit from the new Hasbro Catalogue is that the G1 colours Animated Magnus will not see light of day with Roadbuster Magnus taking his place. Shockwave is confirmed and and will retail at £22.99 :)

    Glad I picked mine up from FP.

    Typical no show of one of the best animated figures.

    You're really rocking the news forum today Andy. :thumb 

    I already got my Magnus from FP after you last post about him but I'm glad Shockwave is coming, I wa sgetting worried that they might have skipped over him, swindle and blurr.

    Pity about that price hike tho. :(

    So, they're canceling the figure in the color scheme in which he appears in the show, but releasing him in the 25-year-old obscure homage colors?


    Neato.

    What, there was a blue/white/red version of Magnus on the way? Or you're just talking about the regular Magnus?

    Heh, glad I grabbed one from FP the other week also.
    He's such a nice mold, but there's no way I would buy his redeco.
    Not this time Hasbro UK. Not this time.

    Good work, Hasbro UK. You just lost even more money from me. :)

    Well, the replacement of standard Magnus with Roadbuster Magnus is a move of colossal plank-like idiocy, but it's still good to hear about Shockwave; frankly, I was starting to doubt that we'd see any more Animated figures over here. Better start getting on eBay for Magnus, though...

    I didn't even know there was a possibility of a G1 colored Magnus, but I'm not surprised they canned the idea since it wouldn't look too different from the current version.

    Sorry, it's a bit confusing: when we're saying "G1 Magnus", we mean the normal blue-and-white show-colours version, the one you all have already. There's no G1 repaint or anything.

    Ah, okay. The thread title is misleading and should probably be changed then. It makes it sound like there was going to be a G1 repaint of TFA Magnus but that it got cancelled.

    My brain really hurts trying to figure out the thinking behind not releasing show-Magnus.

    But then it feels better as I'll have the opportunity of buying Shockwave locally :)

    Man. You guys are gonna love the absolutely hideous looking Roadbuster Magnus. I saw them in person the other day and seriously thought Hasbro was on some acid trip when they decided to go that route.

    It makes no sense. Green and yellow/orange with a BLUE HEAD AND HIP GUARDS?

    Wish they did the repaint as an Onslaught instead.

    Had to dump all the ugly ass figures on some unsuspecting country I guess.

    Sorry to all you U.K. folk that are getting the royal-screw-job on this one. RBUM (Road Buster Ultra Magnus) is hideously-ugly-faced. I wince in fear whenever I see him.

    Way to meet demand Hasbro... :confused:

    Probably won't be released over here either. I'm glad I imported it before it got sold out everwhere online!
