    Maybe more than the TRU reissue, but worth more than an original G1 toy In the same condition no.

    I don't think Ultra Magnus is worth much G1, Reissue, and Hasbro...:2c: 

    I remember watching a couple of MIB G1's go for under 100 bucks awhile back.

    I just got an open G1 magnus mint missing a launcher and a missile for $40 w/shipping, so no I don't think its worth the same as a misb G1 magnus. Sorry man.

    Reissues are generally more common than originals, so they tend to be worth less than a vintage release. It is certainly true of characters like Ultra Magnus where the reissue was quite widely distributed at the time of release - there's a whole lot of them out there.

    It is worth more than the US reissue one, though, for being a true and accurate representation of the original toy, not altered in any way to comply with modern US safety laws. That does put it up a bit for those who dislike the huge missiles on the reissue.

    With all of Takara's 2010 hype, i'm a bit surprised they haven't solicited a reissue.

    The last one was what... late 2000? Early 2001?

    Unfortunately, this theory doesn't fit into that darn eHobby Astrotrain which I'm missing for years. :cry

    That was never available for purchase during the G1 era. The only grey Astrotrain was a prototype that couldn't transform and who knows how many of them survived after all this time.

    I'd love to own that one, the arms even slide out:drool:
