    It is likely that there is a plan to sell besides e-hobby in an event meeting place in China.

    Ahhh..... after the lack of one in the Movie and Animated lines, another white-Prime-as-Magnus actually feels somewhat.... refreshing? Like a familiar food you like, but haven't eaten in a while.

    Should make that Reprolabels Jazz conversion kit all the more tempting, as well.

    So white Prime (with blue face) is officially accepted as Ultra Magnus in Japan as well? :D

    I expected something like this was gonna come up sooner or later. It actually looks pretty good. Now let's hope they'll do a Thundercracker too. (and maybe a green Megatron as Bludgeon.)

    I was wondering the whole time why they didn't do this instead of the silver one.

    I don't mind as I think it's probably the best mold anyway. it's not got fall appart legs with huge gaps in like Megatron or an awkward chest like Cliffjumper - it's not got 4 eyes like Starscream.

    The only problem it has is a lack of a hand weapon and slightly weak pegs on the back of the legs that can fracture.

    The only problem is that I wonder how many people thought of the Silver Convoy as Ultra Magnus already anyway.

    If E-hobby wanted to be Useful they be doing the following :

    The MIA Heroic Black Henkei Convoy (with red windows) basically like Jafcon Convoy, THS-02B, Nucleon Quest Super Convoy, Robotmasters Black Convoy & Masterpiece Black Convoy etc.... (heck they even made a black bottle cap convoy).

    So I'd like that to come out someplace before they loose the mold down the back of the sofa.

    I'd also like to see stuff more like this from E-hobby :

    Henkei Detritus,
    Powerlinx Henkei Hotshot,
    A Pinkish Brown Henkei Dinobot Or Dalmation striped Grimlock (made from henkei Dinobot) a Blue Classics/Henkei Grimlock
    A Blue Henkei Ramjet
    A Decepticon Air Trooper (as seen in the cartoon)
    Henkei Sunstorm
    Galaxy Force Voyager mold (Pre-earth) Ramjet, Skywarp, Thundercracker.
    Henkei (USA G1 toy based Edition) A Henkei Astrotrain that is black & purple
    Henkei Cheetor as Shadow Panther (pre-Transmetal Ravage)
    A Henkei Cliffjumper (with a new head)
    Henkei Ratchet in Movie Ratchet colors
    Henkei Ironhide in Movie Ironhide colors / (Diaclone colors)
    Voyager ROTF Desert Ratchet (in tan colors like the Legends toy)
    One of the more recent Bumblebees Bumblebees as Cliffjumper or Japanese movie 1970's Bumblebee as Windcharger or Cliffjumper.

    Heck I could go on for 3 times the maximum post limit... but you get the idea.

    Perhaps it's blowing up his own space craft then crashing the leftovers ?

    Meh, we all knew this was coming. I'd be more interested if the head was retooled, but oh well.

    Sighs: Even Alternity is vulnerable to White Convoy-As-Magnus syndrom. Most likely more expensive than regular Alternity as well. Pass. I don't need to complete Alternity that badly.

    While not terribly original, it still looks nice. I never got this mold so I may consider picking Magnus up if the price online isn't too bad.

    Apparently :lol 

    Aww, those crazy back-story Alternaties... :D 

    Hmm, looks decent enough, and for that being a neat homage, id buy it! :D 

    Although, a newer car/ robot design would have been more appropriate. Say a mini-van/ pick-up truck ala Binaltech Prime/ convoy. :/
