Why is this guy so darn expensive?
Because more people want it than there are selling it at the moment.
wasn't as many produced as there were 20th prime/MP-01
Luckily I got mine when he first came out...
er, delete please?
Well, when it was announced many people made fun of the figure. This lead to many people not ordering it. It was still available for a while but suddenly sold out. Now the majority of the people who didn't get him in the first place want one now. Luckily I wasn't one of them and got him went he came out.
Same thing happened with BT Police Prowl and now with BT Skids...
Didn't want it then, don't want it now. Now if they did say MP-05 with a trailer/Armor I would be all over that!
even if it was pink?
I wish that were so... But more likely we'll get MP-05 Magnus with regular Convoy trailer and no Roller!!! Yay!!!
Suddenly people dont want a number gap in their masterpiece collection
I want one now too. Never really ruled him out but wasn't that big on the idea. After seeing classics Magnus I think I may have a little Magnus group set up when I get everything back out and displayed again, so I'd kind of need to have that big guy in there.
I want one and I paid through the nose to get it unfortunately. Originally, I thought it was just a Convoy/Optimus Prime and I didn't want to waste the money since I already had the first Masterpiece. Now, with MP-3 and MP-4 coming out, and I plan on getting both, my collection would look a bit silly without MP-2 in my eyes. Not a logical reason but it bugs me nonetheless.
How desperate are you guys for international shipping? There's a few around here collecting dust on target shelves for $89AUD. Of course a few have been opened from sitting there for so long, but there might be one or two left sealed.
Like some of the others on here, I am glad I got mine when it first hit. Actually, that is one of a handful of figures I have imported. He looks great in my Magnus collection!
I picked up my MP Magnus for like $120 Canadian when it first came out as he was pretty undesirable at the time as we were hearing a lot of the usual rants from the fandom of how he sucked and was just a quicky repaint to make money (damn those Takara bastards ). But ya, I think a lot of it has to do with the fact that this gem really fell through the cracks first time around and now that he's been sold out for quite a wile now and people are starting to go back and re-examine this guy the cost of him has really climbed, especially recently I've noticed.
Truth be told- 1) that one is a little old 2) Gotta thank Alphie for that one, she took the pic. That is most of my Magnus collection, however.
You did something bad to my childhood! Just kidding, it's still nice regardless of who took it.
