    Has anyone used Classis Ultra Magnus with this armor? I'm thinking of getting one, but I don't have an extra Prime to go with it. I do, however, have an extra Magnus, and I was wondering how he'd look in the armor. Thanks for any help, and any pictures would certainly be appreciated! :)

    Paint it blue and it'll be perfect.

    He's almost invisible when in the robot mode so it makes little difference really, I'm using mine on Shattered Glass Optimus and aside from the fore arm panels you can't even tell really- with a casual glance which cab is wearing any Commander Armour in Robot mode.

    My advice would be to sell your spare Magnus for some big bucks and buy the cheapest Prime you can find. Not only will you likely make a profit but you'll end up with (technically) the correct figure for the armour.

    Simples!

    Damn, that is a good price. I had it in my POL for months at about $100 and I felt alright at that price. It will look alright, but I would upgrade when the re-release of Henkei Prime hits the webstores or search for a classics on the Junkion. The thighs won't look that good, and IMO the miscolored kibble on the arms looks terrible. There are some reasonably priced ones on the Junkion ($35) that were talked about in another thread a couple days ago. Or you could trade your Magnus to me for one of my Classics Primes :)

    Aren't they re-releasing Henkei Convoy?

    You could sell your spare Ultra Magnus, and get enough to get a brand new Henkei Convoy AND the armor.

    No, technically Ultra Magnus is correct. Only, as I said in my previous post, he should be painted blue.

    Example:

    This is the toy DIA Commander is hearkening back to. "DIA"clone Powered Convoy. The figure that became Ultra Magnus.

    I know that.

    I meant in the context of the available officially released figures, ie DIA Powered Commander armour is designed for Prime, City Commander for Magnus etc.

    Sorry, should have been more specific. :) 

    Although I agree that the Prime mold should be blue and I want one now!

    *remembers the early TFTM trailers where Ultra Magnus was coloured that way*

    I ordered mine last night, been shipped already.

    Very good price, especially with the exchange rates.
