There's been some buzz around lately - with auctions for purported leaked toys on Taobao and assumed early releases - that Takara-Tomy was revisiting Transformers Henkei one more time to release the Classics Ultra Magnus for its market complete with full white legs like the Generation 1 toy. The more skeptical of us were, well, skeptical.
Here's the reality though. Transformers Henkei Ultra Magnus is for real. It's coming out as a new Asia exclusive release, due out late September / early October 2012 - in other words, it's not a revival of the Henkei line by Takara-Tomy but an Asian market exclusive, like a growing number of items recently.
If you would like a Generation 1 accurate version of Classics Ultra Magnus, it's up for preorder now at Robot Kingdom
