    I just recieved MP-02 today but never really intended on getting him but after looking at my collection of MPs I realized it would be off balance when my MP-05 Megatron arrives in March. So here he is just waiting for Megs to arrive. I know hes old news but here are some pics of him anyways.

    If They ever release him with a trailer like they did with Convoy, I'd be all over Magnus. As he is now though "meh", glad you like him though!

    I'm on the same page as Robogeek. This version of Magnus does nothing for me. Obviously the biggest reason being that Magnus isn't just a white repaint of Prime. The white cab used for *the 80's toy* was apart of the overall makeup of the final character, not just a component with so-called "body armor" as invented by Dreamwave. But that's a different rant, hehe.

    But yeah, if they ever release a functional attachable trailer to complete the character, then I'll definitely grab him. It would also be nice if they replaced the green on his hips to match the blue on his face in this current form.

    The best thing about MP-02 is the black gun. I almost bought it specifically for that one little thing (to give to MP-01), but ultimately decided against it. But I do see why you bought him... to keep your MP numbers even. Fair enough. I probably would have done the same thing if I considered MP-03 to be an actual Masterpiece. But thus far, I consider him to be more of a Seeker Alternator due to his small size and all plastic design. But that's just me.

    Yeah, same boat as robogeek and Inception here. It's just "meh" to me. If we get a perfect edtion down the road, but until then, it's just not complete. It's just Magnus, Not Ultra Magnus.

    Like you and many others, I am also waiting for a "Perfect Edition" of Ultra Magnus to spend the money on him. If a few more years and MPs go by and they still haven't done so, then I may cave in and get the MP-02 Magnus (non Ultra edition).

    Your comment on the gun got me thinking about the stupid blue gun with the 20th anniversary DVD edition of Prime. I wonder how Magnus would look with that blue gun. Maybe it wouldn't look so bad in his hands.

    You should switch Prime's and Magnus' guns like I did with mine. Prime just don't look right with that gray gun.

    I'm with Robogeek. If he was released with a trailer, I would consider it, but it alone just doesn't cut it for me. I won't buy Screamer either simply because he doesn't resemble screamer. Megatron on the other hand I'm all over.

    If Magnus was re-released with a Magnus trailer, I'd buy it.
