    Well, I guess that's good new for me too, considering we get our products from Hasbro Europe.

    Glad I ordered my Ultra Magnus from Kapow seeing as the outlook is not good :) 

    Hope he does make it, though.

    no normal magnus is just... a travesty. I'll have to go about this online then. The one's were getting I would happily trade for a normal magnus. :'(

    Erm.....OK.......why is the repaint being released over the toy that kids will actually recognise from the show??

    My brain obviously can't comprehend the staggering thought matrix involved.

    Safeguard coming is welcome news though.

    (Got his Magnus from FP before christmas, and feels vindicated for doing so)

    Well, it's good to hear about the others, but the idea of the standard Magnus being skipped would just be a colossal failure of the worst sort. Magnus is a major character - why on earth would they think that a gaudy repaint based on an obscure homage would sell better than the show-accurate version? :confused:  It doesn't make a lick of sense...hope that one's not true. :(

    So am I. Magnus is awesome, repaint not so.

    Hasbro must think that beacuse Leader Bulkhead and Megatron are shelfwarming (even at £20 - £30) then Magnus will as well.
    Really they must read these forums and give the people what they want.

    Yay Red Leader! =D

    I must say SB Megatron and RB Ultra Magnus are funny choices, but I'm extremely pleased to hear that we'll be getting the jet twins here! =D


    I guess I'll just have to order Ultra Magnus online!

    So much for me waiting for Magnus. I'll have to track him down elsewhere now, no way I'm buying him in those horrible colors.

    Which leaves us in a somewhat sticky predicament.

    Where do we go for our blue Magnus goodness?

    I certainly hope so.
    I did a preliminary search around my fave webstores, and I can't see hide nor hair of blue Magnus.

    And I so hate using american webstores. You get absolutely raped on shipping.

    Cheers for the info Red Leader.

    I'll pick up SB Megs, as I'll buy any G1 inspired Megs. The others are an easy pass for me though, I've recently decided to stop collecting Ani, mainly due to space issues.

    I've still not watched any of the show though, so that may all change!

    I really should watch it before I sell most of my Ani, I can see myself watching the show, then re-buying those I'd let go.
