    That is actually a head for Classics Ultra Magnus (Target Exclusive), but it is a nice head sculpt nonetheless.

    Thanks for pointing that out. I should have relaized that. Although they should do one for the ALts as well.

    Umm could someone change the Title please?

    definately buying this... i can deal with repaints and the re-use of molds, but it kills me when they don't give a character a new head sculpt.. it makes all the difference in the world IMO...

    So they're actually making an Ultra Magnus for the Classics line? Isn't that just the 6" titanium line head sculpt?

    Man...I LOVE the wording those people use for item-descriptions! If I didn't know they were doing EVERYTHING possible to avoid legal-disputes, I'd swear it was really bad Engrish. And in regards to your question, Sami, the Ultra Magnus from classics is a Prime recolor. He comes in a two-pack with Skywarp. Do you need help finding one..?

    I'm pretty sure it's a shrunk g1 magnus. if you look at the eyes, the biggest drawback I think of the ti version, this looks way different. however, why does it say "for the robot changer store exclusive"? is that his way of getting around the trademark issues?

    Has anyone bought from them before? They have a few things I wouldn't mind picking up, but I've not heard of them before.

    I agree....the guy who submitted it is actually a basher at Tfans....

    He used the myclone head on his Alt Magnus....

    hmmm....maybe he commished the new casting from Alyosha for the classics line?

    The guy mainly does G.I. joe stuff, but a buddy of his got him into making Alt heads (Swerve, Prime, Skids and a few others)....he was pretty popular on Tfans for a while there.

    I've never dealt with him/them personally, but I've heard thru Tfans, TFW2k5 and eBay that they are v....e....r....y....s....l....o....w....about getting stuff out to you.

    If I recall correctly someone on eBay waited over a month to get one of the casted Alt heads....

    EDIT: If you want something like this, contact Sculpt-bot...he's a member here and does fantastic work! I've dealt with him before, he's fast, gives great prices and does excellent work

    Ah, Magnum Ultrus... the autobot we love to hate.

    It's great that nobody's complained yet about the perpetual expression of dismay on his face. I guess that's just how we picture him. :)

    Does anyone have any pics of the MyClone head on Classics Magnus? I'm wondering if it actually fits into the torso cavity...

    Looking at the Myclone head I have and Classics Magnus I dont' think it will fit in the cavity. It's just a little too wide. However on the site it says "sized" to fit, so maybe they shrunk it a bit. I'm curious to know if it's shrunk since if it is I can use it on my Laser Magnus I'm currently using the Myclone head for.
    I just noticed the Myclone head repro looks to be a straight repro (has the neck peg). That would involve quite a bit of modding to make it work on Classics Magnus.

    Crap, it is. Nevermind. Why go to all the trouble of trying to paint it, when I can just use the MyClone?
