    Well I FINALLY got this little bugger in the mail today. Bought it off eBay from a seller in Hong Kong and took 2 weeks to get here by EMS, which I could have done with air mail for half the price.

    Aside from that though this was totally worth the wait. Never been a huge Ultra Magnus fan but recently I've been on a UM tear. Saw this guy at TransformerCon a month or so back and really regretting not buying him them (damn indecisiveness :banghead:  ) But afterwords I had to have him, ya paid $35-50 more then I should have but oh well.

    But this toy is absolutely beautiful :rock  I'm not talking just ordinary beautiful but JAW DROPPING beautiful :ROCK

    I've had the original UM for a long time now and this beauty just blows it out of the water. I always find it amazing despite how people bitch and complain about repaints, I gotta say its amazing what a simply repaint can do to a toy. Not to mention he looks great in all three modes (Man I love his cab :cry )

    What makes this such a great toy for me as well is that he was such an unexpected grail to pick up as a before TFCon I would never have pegged to pick this toy up. Even after buying him I never expected I would like him this much either, I knew I would like him but wow.

    This has definatly turned out to be an unexpected grail for me, wile the original UM has always been a good toy in my eye this Magnus for me is worthy of the title I'm defiantly giving this toy and it joins the sacred rank of special toys that can only be called a grail. And what makes this extra special as well is it came on a lousy day (13 hours hauling HEAVY computer gear :( )

    Anyway here are a few snapshots I took hope you enjoy, and I defiantly know which gallery I'm shooting this weekend :D
