    Didn't even bother to paint the head a different color.

    Yeah, and the box art confirms that wasn't just a prototype mistake.

    I actually think it looks cool with the blue head. nice contrast.

    but I like my normal magnus just fine. never bought a leader class repaint before, not gonna start now.

    Yeah, even IF they had painted the head, I'd pass. I like the original, thanks.

    Sweet, finnaly something good about skipping him the first time! He looks alot more imposing and even the animation model looks good in these colors.

    As much as I hate to say it, and in Hasbro's defense, the box DOES say "Roadbuster Ultra Magnus." I.E. it doesn't say "Roadbuster." He's obviously a rendition of UM wearing camo, so the blue/white head, though ugly, is purposeful.

    Hmm...I think I might get one but I'll only open it if one of our trusty customizers makes a new head for him. If not, I'll toss him in the 'Bay.

    I wonder what would happen if they repainted every Magnus toy in Roadbuster colors. And then by extension repainted most Primes in Roadbuster colors as a result.

    Some people would bitch, some people would buy them, Baby Jesus would laugh and then cry, Buddha would fart and an interdimensional vortex would open up and allow legions of shadow monsters to drop into and ravage our world. In that order.

    This would have been killer with a different head. As is... maybe if I just got a bunch of good pics I wouldn't need to buy.
