    Man, he'd look so much better if his head and hips weren't blue.

    I don't know, I kinda like how they kept some of the original colors so we know we're still dealing with Ultra Magnus... Not getting it though.

    It's kinda like Ultra Magnus decided to attend a dress-up party as Roadbuster.

    It the typical Hasbro way which is giving us a re-paint for the sake of a re-paint.

    Still looks to me like they just recycled parts left over from the first run Ultra Magnus. I was really looking forward to this figure too, but this is awful.

    Well that's kindof what the figure is. "Roadbuster Ultra Magnus". Ultra Magnus as itself painted as Roadbuster.

    That's true, my bad then, it leaves me wondering why they left the head blue though.

    Is it possible this is an early, non-final color test shot? We've seen instances before, such as Elite Guard Bumblebee and Universe Cyclonus and Hound who had several test shots leak before the final colors were added to the molds.

    Looks good.

    Though he'd look better if the head was green.

    I really hope they change the head colors like on EGBB.

    Hmm.. There might be a possibility, but the OP (who took the pics himself) didn't mention anything about it in his post. Did tfclub members ever posted high-res pics of test shots before? I'm new at this so I don't really know.

    The level of disappointment met my expectations. If they were so hell bent on keeping all that blue, they could've come up with some other color scheme.

    Looks like Ultra Magnus' community service outfit.

    The deco wouldn't be based on a character only older collectors know anything about if that were the case, it'd just be some random shit

    Diaclone colors would've been an instabuy, hell, just calling it Roadbuster would've been an instabuy. I'll keep my original.

    If that bot had a new head, I'd be SOLD. Cause Roadbuster is all kinds of win. But Roadbuster Magnus Bluehead Thor Thing is.... all levels of fail.
