    OK

    Im trying to get some KO ALTERNATOR ULTRA MAGNUS put into production using the Optimus Prime Mould.

    I just need to know who would be interested.

    So Let me know "YES" or "NO" if its interesting.

    and "YES" or "NO" if you would actually buy one.

    This will give the guy making them an idea if he will produce them.

    To get them produced I might have to take some preorders so he is sure there is a market for them, but if this takes off we can worrry about that later.

    So

    I say

    YES, it is of interest (well i thought it be cool)

    YES I will keep one if I can get them made

    I don't really care for the Prime mold but where I already have a Prime & a Nemesis Prime there should definatly be a Magnus.

    Only if the colors are correctly applied so it looks like a legit version of Ultra Magnus and if the quality is pretty good.

    Do you have a price in mind for the future? And I agree with the quality and coloration

    If I were to sell them they would probably be around 35 or 40 USD as a first item and 25 as an additional (which includes EMS Shipping to most countries)

    ha ha, great response.

    I might be interested. depends on how the quality would be. would it actually fit together in both modes, unlike pretty much every alternator KO that exists?

    No. The Alternator Optimus Prime mold isn't very good to begin with and I can only imagine how much worse it would be with KO-quality materials. It's an interesting idea, but not one that I'd be interested in or consider buying.

    This, plus a general disdain for white Primes being called Ultra Magnus.

    You would be better off with a ko alternator trailbreaker or hoist using the alt optimus mold. All it would take is new heads and a hook for hoist. It would get more interest than a white prime.

    No interest. I don't even display the Alt Prime I already have.

    No. Alts are boring and the mold is by far the worst of the lot.

    I'd be interested, if only to try and see if I could make a trailer armor for him, which I doubt, but I'd take him anyways.

    I'd much rather see this mould used with Swindle's head to give us Trailbreaker. My alts (well, BTs) are displayed with my MPs so no need for Prime or Magnus Alts (see my recent post in the collection showcase thread).

    So would I by a white Magnus? NO.

    Would I buy a well done Trailbreaker? YES. Even better if he's die-cast, BT style.

    Alt Prime and Rodimus are tainted with KOs already so go for it.

    Yeah but I'm kinda tired of a bunch of white Optimus Primes rolling around.
