    This must happen!

    You can't have one without the other (Optimus Prime and Megatron).

    TFC would be foolish to let such an opportunity to have purchase synergy go to waste. Buying one toy would most likely provide more motivation for customers to buy the other.

    Heh. TFC saw you coming and already prepared their trap. Judging from the three logos, this will come in an Ultra Magnus deco as well :eek: 
    Take that “Optimus moratorium”!! LOL

    While Magnus is possible, I see it more as simply being the original Joe logo colors:

    I'm guessing $150 or so.

    Hopefully he'll be much less.

    Yes, same here. I have more than enough Red, Black, White, Purple Primes, while I don't think I have one single Green Prime. (I couldn't afford the Japanese Ape Green MP10...)

    While I do hope the do the Classic Prime Colors so that they get the sales needed, I want them to do a green version as well.

    It just seems a bit more interesting to me, something different, you know?

    Let's say I buy the Green version, what repaint option does the theoretical Megatron would match? :D

    As long as the quality is there, it's just a matter of when I buy this, not if. The more we see, the more I like it, and I'm glad that tends to be a trend with TFC these days (rather than the opposite which was TFC just a few years ago).

    This is a great idea!

    But I think we can do better.

    How about a Don shrine?

    so without the boots he would be around the same height as mp10?

    actually tempted by this , would have to paint that huge bit of clear plastic that covers the back of the head

    The more I think about it, the more I think that Megs needs to be made to compliment this guy.


    Just sayin....:D

    This in Magnus colors would be amazing! It would be an automatic buy for me. As it is, I wI'll prbbly get the green one no matter what.

    I dunno, their most recent thing is the mediocre Road Caesar set with cheap plastic, weird transformation bits, and tiny heads. Poseidon was pretty good by most reports but that seems to be the one thing they did that was very good. Hopefully this somehow turns out great.
