    I'm searching for a classics ultra so i can buy a City Commander kit this Summer.

    the only one's i can find are Classics Ultra with Prime or Skywarp 2 packs that cost $100.

    are there any other cheaper alternatives that use the same mold.


    ..25-30 bucks would be nice considering I have to pay almost $ 100-200 for CC

    Thanks TO the City Commander add-on pack, you probably wont find UM anywhere near the price range you're looking for.

    You're not going to find it any cheaper than $70. Spring for that price the moment you see it on eBay.

    only way to find it cheaper would be is to find um loose, but it wont be in the price range you're looking at.

    Board member autobotx23 was selling one for around $40 bucks shipped last month. Ask him if he still has.

    It'll be tough. Given that there's a Commander set for every version of the mold except Shattered Glass Optimus, every version is tough to find these days (With the possible exception of Nemesis Prime)

    With the CC set re-issue, it'll be even TOUGHER to find UM.

    Unless you're willing to repaint a figure into UM, you're probably just gonna hafta bite the bullet at this point if you want him.

    not sure if it would matter as they won't be much cheaper than UM $40 to 50$ lose for Prime compared to $60-70 loose for Magnus as the armors have made them all jump in price more than just being out of retail for a few years would have

    Differences would be mostly restricted to the upper legs and waist, the arm kibble sticking out of the hand armor, and the side of the legs sticking out of the leg armor.

    Nemesis prime is youe best bet, still need to repaint him though, and it probably cost 40 at minimum

    Best advice is try to find one loose (unless ya want Skywarp too) so try the Junkion Exchange.

    I'd also invest in a Energon/ ROTF Superion and Bruticus as well as classics/henkei Rodimus.

    Don't miss the boat on those :)

    Keep track of them on ebay. You're probably VERY unlikely to find them at the $25-$30 price you wanted, but you can get them considerably cheaper than what others in this thread have said. I got the Magnus and Skywarp 2-pack MISB last week for $59.99 ($44.99 +$15.00 shipping). I also noticed that the UM/Skywarp 2-packs are a little cheaper proportionately to the individual guys (70/80 for the single 80/90 for the 2-pack) while the UM/OP 2-packs were a little more .

    Bonus for the seller calling him Mugnus!

    I had been watching them for a couple of months though. Just keep track of all of them that you can find, but be patient.

    except in vehicle mode, it looks pretty good i must say. the red matches almost perfectly (the side arm kibble just looks off) and the blues are two different shades, other than that it looks great

    I was fortunate enough to have gotten one through Shadow Dragon here on the boards, but definitely keep checking the Junkion Exchange.
