    so, i've heard he's been selling for alot, but jeezus...he's been hitting 40 bucks loose on ebay...that's insane...why's he selling for so much? is it because of the upgrade set? i had one sitting around i was gonna customize, but i think i may sell him now...i could buy nightbeat with most of the money from selling him...

    The price hike is purely because of the upgrade set. Personally I wouldn't mind getting him and then the upgrade set if I had the money for them. My collection will just have to go Ultra Magnus free until another great Ultra Magnus figure gets made. The Animated one is ok, but I generally don't like Leader class toys.

    Yeah, that's it. People didn't want him when he was available (quite a few people bought the two pack for Skywarp and sold their Magnus), now they want him because of the upgrade set. Supply and demand: the more demand there is, the more you can charge to supply it. Almost makes me want to sell one of my two Magnuses. Magni. Whatever.

    The funny thing is I bought the Magnus / Skywarp set for Ultra Magnus, I'm pretty sure I was in the minority at the time.

    yeah, but so many people on the boards want to undercut prices so bad...but ebay i'd have to pay fee's...so i'll probably put it on the boards...

    I think the demand's here on the boards where you don't have to settle for being undercut.

    I bought it for Skywarp, but was so happy with both figures I happily bought the set again when Woolworths were selling it for £15.

    I bought the set for both. Since he is the only "White Prime" I have, the mold choice doesn't bother me. Plus the mold itself is awesome.
