    My only issue is they went for the red bar and didn't go full Magnus armour !!

    What 80s character is Ranton referring to? Is it a North American character

    It'd be really nice if DX9 had made this a full-on Ultra Magnus with the armour too. Maybe they'll do it as a separate kit later on...? I'm probably being too optimistic there.

    I really love the bot mode, much better than the regular and black one, colors work out so much better with the limitations of proportions from this legends size figure mold. So on my radar.

    Yeah, the red is ugly for truck... i want it for bot mode though.

    I've gotten over my fear of painting (and otherwise personalizing) my figures, after learning to paint miniatures games. If I ever get an UM, I guarantee I will be painting over the red.

    I'm confused by the "sketchy" jab.
    Are you saying that because you think Baba is sketchy...
    ...or are you making fun of people who think overseas sellers (like Baba) are sketchy?

    I think Scare Bear was kidding around, @dmarsee

    And, based on my cursory research, I think this is a Naruto reference, @OriginalFire :oops: 

    So, if DX9 is going for anime nods, Windblade and Slipstream as Ryuko and Satsuki would be ti~ght :p 

    Now, I don’t think I need Magnus, but it is kinda interesting that it seems to borrow more from Black Convoy than from Prime himself, given all the teal notes.

    While I doubt the following is the case, it would be neat if it turned out the inside of Magnus’ Trailer was unique, even if it doesn’t become his power armor.

    As an Ultra Magnus collector... this is poo. I'm not even going to bother watching this thread like I do for every other legends release.

    Sorry, I can't tell what you're saying.

    I'm a sucker for white Inner Magnuses, and in theory am all over this... but yeaaaaah, that red bumper is... not good. If you're not going for a full Magnus trailer thing, why do that?

    That being said, I'll buy this, as I do most every Inner Magnus.... I'll just leave him in robot mode where the bumper isn't visible. Or paint over it, or strip the red pain off it, one or the other.

    So, forgive me for not being up on this... but is this an exclusive of some kind? TF-Direct isn't affiliated with baba, is it? Just wondering how readily available this will be.
