    I got him in the mail not too long ago and already I'm loving him. I find him to be a bit more sturdier and more poseable than my 20th Ann Prime for some reason.

    I can only recommend this however for completists as he is just a straight up repaint. There's nothing new here except for the really nice colors and the paperboard carrier.

    Neat pic, but where'd the G1-Magnus style gun come from? I was under the impression that MP Magnus came with the black version of OP's rifle.

    Most likely a repro. I saw one quite similar to that on Ebay a while ago.

    Yup, that is correct sir! Although it took awhile and a lot of aggravation to get it. At least the guy did a good job on the gun. But then again for $25 it better be freakin' good!

    Ah, thanks guys. I didn't know that anyone had done any, much less put them up for sale.

    Much better than having the poor guy carry around Prime's gun. (Would the tooling costs really have been that much for Takara to incur, given the toy's hefty price tag and the fact that he has absolutely no new parts? Probably.)

    I just saw that they made a trailer for the 20th ann. Prime. It would be awsomw if they could do the same for Ultra magnus, and some how have him combine with it. :rock
