Huh. So he IS a United toy (not that that's surprising, I would've been flabbergasted if they randomly went back to the Henkei packaging) but in the "normal" United packaging and not the windowless boxes that the exclusives (Stepper, Black Optimus, eHobby sets) have received.
I'm not sure if I wanted a fancy box for it to come in...but I guess at the price it's being offered, it wouldn't have hurt.
Still, cool to finally see a pic. The addition of chrome is still really interesting, since United releases (even Black Optimus) lacked chrome, even Perceptor.
Has this come out yet?
Either it has, or it's about to. It was scheduled for late September/early October. Since October's here, I imagine its release is imminent if it isn't out already.
Pre-order, delayed to late October 2012.
*Full body in white colour, different colour with the Hasbro version, more G1 color accurate!
Due to a sudden cost increase, the item is temporarily taken out.
All customers with preorders will not be affected.
This item will be relisted after the stock arrival.
Also, the release date is delayed to late October 2012.

I prefer that the packaging fits in with the rest of my United figures and I like the more G1 accurate UM even though I have the Classics version already.
Good thing I preordered it before the price jump.
damn. took too long debating before they sold out. oh well, i'll just live with my hasbro magnus as he will be in his suit forevar!!
Wait, was the price increase on TakTomy's end, or RK jacking prices to cater to interest?
TakTomy end, TFSource's price went up too. I preordered it there when it was $69 and now they have it at $79.
I mIght have to get this guy later on down the road.
What exactly is "exclusive" about this, other than the ridiculous price?
Yikes, I'm thinking this may wind up "shelf" warming til the price dips a bit.
Im with you , waiting ..it will go on sale sometime after X-Mas..
How is he different from the previous Target exclusive Ultra Magnus a few years ago?
Just colors and chrome.
I actually prefer the Target version more...all the white is just really boring to look at.
I considered getting this but I already have the Target version and he'll be staying in the FP CC armor forever. I would get him just as a standalone mold but I already have Henkei Convoy for that. It's neat but my wallet is pulled in too many directions already.
Pass! Maybe if FP was to re-release there Base Commander at a lower price I might buy it.
They need to re-release Skywarp as a United. Or even better, Hasbro brings him out in the generations line. I would buy that
Damn, BBTS raised their preorder too. They still have 162 left (did it grow recently?). Go figure, I'd canceled my preorder thinking I'd have time to pick this up later at $70 instead of $80 because I figured with no sellout and plenty of stock still left the price wouldn't be in danger of going up in the short term...and naturally the price is raised anyways. At least it's been raised by most/all of the online retailers, so it's not just one or two sites arbitrarily trying to squeeze more money out of one listing.
It's supposed to be a Chinese exclusive.
It's...not sold out, at least not on BBTS.
The main difference is the jeans have gone!!
