    Yay for Ultra Magnus fans but I'm not sure if I'm digging the all white.

    Hopefully this will pave the way for some more releases, like Cliffjumper!

    Man, from that pic, I just wish TTomy/Ehobby would just releases MP10 white Magnus for the time being w/out the Prime trailer until we get the armor version, then I'll be one happy UMagnus fan!

    Back to topic, yeah baby, he shall be mine and will stand side by side with my current CC.

    2012 is the year of UMagnus:
    Prime Cyberverse, Voyager, Botcon SG, Botcon Ultra Mammoth, FOC, and now United,

    Well well well, this is happening...but as an Asian exclusive, rather than a United release? Interesting.

    The return of chrome is also a welcome, though odd, development, since the recent Black Optimus Prime didn't feature any. There is word that the Takara FoC stuff will feature chrome though, so maybe this is connected some way.

    Another thing I'm curious about is will this actually be sold in Henkei packaging (even as an Asian Exclusive) or will it keep the United exclusive packaging of stuff like Black Optimus, Stepper and the Darkside Optimus/Megatron set?

    This would also be nice.

    Want...to see what it looks like in City Commander. It's probably a pass though since even if it looked better in CC, which it may well not because the legs might look strange, the difference behind all that armor would probably be negligible.

    Well I wouldn't keep my hope up on that one. Considering the GDO Cliffjumper is floating around.

    Not bad. But really not worth it if you already have Classics Magnus.....unless you are a Henkei-Head.

    Check out post #164 in this thread:
    http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/trans...3352-takara-henkei-ultra-magnus-exists-5.html

    Looks pretty good not much difference if you already have CC though :)

    Thanks. And yes, it does look good, but hardly a notable difference. I'd also like to see alt mode pics as that might be the more noticeable.

    But yeah, no reason to drop another $80 or whatever this thing is going to cost you shipped.

    Hopefully this leads to FP making more City Commander armor and add-on kits. I wouldn't mind getting the add-on kit at a nice price.

    His price has dropped significantly since the last "reissue," I think last couple months or so it was $130 or so on BBTS. Even another reissue probably won't go below that.

    Well that's nice and all. I suppose it might even beat the price of a Classic one loose at this point...which would be the only reason to recommend the figure IMO.
