    Admittedly it may not be neccessary, but...

    What if they took PMOP, and re-revearsed engineered it back to Ultra Magnus, but kept the parts that allow him to be a Titan master. his T M could even be Minimus Ambus.

    I guess I say this because I like how the Titan Master gimmick works a lot better than how Minimus Ambus worked with CW UM. So a new version of the toy as a TR would be worth double dipping for me.

    I also wouldn't mind TR Galvatron being de-TRed, giving him a straight head that just folds into his chest.

    No thanks. I would rather have a Magnus that come with a white prime mode.

    I'd be okay with this only if it turned out to be the rumored Delta Prime in Diaclone colors and his head became a little blue Optimus Prime.

    I'd rather they recolor the voyager Prime into an ehobby G2 Magnus update.

    With the Takara small Ginrai / Prime face Titan Master instead of the Orion head as a nod to the original. Also...better and smaller feet than the Hasbro mold has by default. I remember the rumor...I was hoping it was true, being a basically new character, making him a HM would be a nice separation from Ultra Magnus.

    It's not a necessity but if they made this with Base mode compatibility, I would straight up buy a second magnus!

    Takara Legends Ultra Magnus may have his flaws but compared to TR PM Optimus Prime he is damn near perfect,why would anyone want to turn a perfectly fine figure into a Headmaster or Titanmaster as they are calling them now.

    For me I wouldn't want one since I have Takara's Legend version.Sure some people might like your idea of TR Ultra Magnus but I'm just not one of them.

    TR Delta Magnus? Sure!

    Not like my Legends Magnus will share feet/shins/forearms/head/guns with him anyway :ev:

    Should still have plenty of variety between Legends Magnus and Super Ginrai to keep all 3 molds unique!

    THIS

    And while they are there, they can do a PM Op Prime with a freaking POWERMASTER and a transforming cab/robot, too.

    Seriously... ONLY two other people agree with this BRILLANT idea.

    I would definitely want it since the original mold could benefit from the improvements made in the Takara Ginrai version. Particularly the hands and PMOP ability to fold the head in the cab rather than having a fold up head while Minimus pops out. Besides who wouldn't want his head alone or a Delta Magnus redeco.

    As for Galvatron his Titanmaster issue would be alleviated if in the new wave revision they installed a helmet similar to PMOP with said ability to fold in and out rather than that poor faux helmet flip out mask that barely does enough to work right with its intended design.

    Nah. Two good uses of this mold is good enough. CW UM is good enough (its a great mold). Use the resources/budget for another great leader-class sculpt. Like maybe leader class Grimlock that can be retooled into Deathsaurus...!

    This, except I don't want Delta Magnus remolded in any way. I'd want him to be exactly like Powered Convoy was: a straight prepaint/repaint of Ultra Magnus. Color Minimus as Power Buggy and you have a winner.

    Because who doesn't want to buy the exact same figure but with some silly mold changes to make it less like Ultra Magnus?
