    I was looking at my THS-02 just a few minutes ago and it hit me. Since they love repainting Prime white and calling him Magnus, wouldn't the THS line be the best to do that with? Since they made a new trailer for Prime, a new Magnus trailer wouldn't be that hard. And half the work is already done with the Prime mold already existing. We could finally get the MP style Magnus we should have gotten in the larger size. What do you guys think. Good idea or no? Would Takara be likely to do it?

    Discuss.

    I'd be all over that as long as they actually DID a new magnus trailer. I think the trailer's the best part of 02!

    This is takara we're talking about.

    no way they'd break up the mold, and engineer a new, transformable magnus trailer. They routinely take the cheapest way out with stuff like this. if they cared about being true to the character of magnus at all, they would have at least gave MP Magnus his proper weapon.

    it's nice to imagine, though.

    Sadly, I'm going to have to share Valkysas's opinion here... It would be a thing of awesome beauty... but I doubt it'll happen.

    I'd hit it if they ever made one.

    The most likely thing for Takara to do is repaint THS-02 into an exclusive. Either black, white, gold, or crystal.

    I doubt Magnus could deal with that now

    I have no interest in THS Prime, but I'd love Magnus(if he had transforming trailer armor). I bet we'll see a Magnus repaint eventually, but he won't have his trailer armor. Chances are they'd just repaint Prime's trailer and give him that.

    Black ehobby exclusive. Because with no cartoon to go with Transformers, TV Magazine wouldn't have gold/silver versions :D 

    But Magnus would be nice...and TakTom must be very pleased how well THS2 are selling, so you'll never know.
    Though for THS3 I want Fire Convoy.

    Man I would love that. Especially seeing how they practically reinvented Primes trailer.
    It's been a long time. Another Magnus trailer is long overdue. Especially for someone that popular. Plus it would be nice to finally have a combined UM with poseable legs.
    After seeing what they did with the THS 01 trailer they can definitely pull it off.
    Hope they do a Rodimus and Dark Convoy as well.

    :lol 


    But yeah, a THS Magnus would be quite cool. I don't see it happening though, not with a new trailer. I think that especially for that size, the armor would have to be more of a clip-on kind of deal like RID Magnus and I don't know how well that'd work. Plus they'd have to figure out where to store the head, bigger hands, etc.

    I bet they'd do it if they didn't have to remold the cab in any way- that's going to be a hell of a trailer. I doubt they'd do that much engineering.

    I'm not too keen on either THS we have seen thus far, but I would get an Ultra Magnus if he had the arnor. Likewise I would be all over a THS Ginrai. That is who I am really dieing to see get some Hybrid Service.

    Oh, yeah. A Ginrai would kick ten sorts of tale. Him and Magnus in the line and I'd be a happy camper.
