    Lucky guy. His bio says he's older than Ratchet.

    Better yet, his galactic power is that he's older than Ratchet.

    Ebay:
    When does Magnus gets launched at US retail again?

    I'm not jumping for this figure yet, but he seems to be interesting. Might have to actually encounter this figure in person before I decide.

    Man, I can't wait to get him! He's the main reason why I even considered going into Classics. I'm not a fan of the character but his design really appeals to me! :D

    You have the wrong Magnus...

    This is Animated Ultra Magnus that we're talking about. You're talking about the fan project trailer for Classics Ultra Magnus (which does not include the figure, btw. Yes, even at that $80.00 price range.) I know it's confusing, and a lot of people have been doing it lately, but you're in the wrong thread. lol

    TFTOYS.net (siekone on here) has 3-4 preorders left for $1oo or so that includes the figure *and* the trailer in one set. Might be worth a shot, you'll save money too.

    And while it's great that they had the chance to buy him, it sucks because all we were given the chance to get were figures we already have, or have access to. (in one form or another.)

    But, it makes sense. The HK/China region is where the toys are produced, it's only fair they get first dibs. (I mean beyond the eBay auctions where they pawn 'em off. lol) Since he showed up at the convention, he's been sighted on eBay in a Chinese auction with packaging, plus Target's release date of the 14th., aaaannnnnd BBTS's release date of August 7th...I'd say we literally should see a sighting on him any day now.

    Could be as early as Monday. (Target's trucks for the new week are stocked Sunday morning for the ads, the rest of the stuff (that isn't ad time sensitive is usually shelved the following day.)

    I'd love to be able to buy Wave 4 at retail and save me some shipping costs, not to mention, avoiding BBTS's markups. But...it's better than not having them at all, so....
