    Yes, if it's not too expensive. I have high hopes for him.

    Yes and it won't be more than $250. The Prime price is a test for Ultra Magnus.

    Yes, I want it, but while we are sending a message, I have one:

    I will pay the $250+ you will most likely be asking for. I ask one thing. Make it QC perfect out of the box. I don't want breaking panels, scratched paint, rubbing issues, bad chrome or anything else.

    You do that, and this is BOUGHT!

    Definately interested in an MP UM. Although, keeping the price at or below $250 would keep that interest alive. $200 is already getting expensive imo though.

    I will have to do some saving, cause it is likely to be $250. I think I would eventually get it, but it would be tough to stomach at $250 especially with Hercules, MP-10, Other expensive things I missed on my list already.

    D) Yes, if it comes with a G1 like trailer that combines with it, then price would not matter much to me :)

    Yes, I would buy it even if it were expensive- with reservations. Ultra Magnus is one of my top five. I paid a lot for my classics representation of him, I'd probably pay a lot for an MP one. I don't care much for the prototype shown, especially for $250+. I absolutely understand that I shouldn't take that photo as a final product, but I have some concerns with it conceptually. I don't mind it being a partsformer. I have no problem with Magnus being a partsformer. It's just that I honestly prefer the chunkier Anime design depicted in City Commander and think it would translate well to this piece. My issues are mostly with the shoulders, but the chest and face also bug me. I do not care much for the G1 toy, which this clearly homages.

    But again, this is early. There's no possible way to commit or pass at this early stage. I will say that I would pay $250+ for a MP Ultra Magnus that I really liked. I really like MP10 and am considering buying it (but I know there is no hurry. Optimus Prime will be released many times, you guys). I am not sure this is the Magnus I've been waiting for, but I will continue to follow developments in the project before I make that determination.

    voted no. For one, I don't care for the MP line, for two, even if I care, it will never accomplish what classics accomplish, because it will always be way too expensive to develop MP versions of characters larger than Prime and Megatron. ON that scale, its too expensive and intruicate .

    Yes, I would definitely want it. If Takara fixes up on quality control, and gives us a great, stable rendition of Ultra Magnus, I probably won't mind paying higher than $200.

    No, I wouldn't buy it. I'm not interested enough in the character, the QC in the MP line has consistently disappointed me, there's no way I could justify spending that much money on one non-vintage TF (at least $200) and I already have an Ultra Magnus update (City Commander) that I'm happy with. I also can't see it ever getting a Hasbro release, so there's no chance of the price coming down on a domestic release.

    That said, I hope it does eventually get made for all the people who do want to buy it, so I'm not against the figure being made.
