    Congrats man! The price you paid was AWESOME.

    I don't think the stickers were color specific, so if you don't like them, reprolables to the rescue.

    Once again, contrats!

    Thanks. I didn't even think about the stickers. I wonder just how many they "applied". Hopefully they're just on the Convoy Bot and the Autobot stickers on the trailer. That's probably what I'd have done. But then again this guy "adjusted" his TRU missiles so who knows what he's done with the stickers!!

    I would not mind Diaclone Magnus, and I have regular Magnus, but I could really do without golden shower Magnus

    My Holy Grail was lucky draw tracks. You will probally find you do one of two things, get a new holy grail or become more selective about what you buy.

    I did both, I am now looking for a european G1 red Tracks. I haven't even seen one as of yet.

    I totally agree. In fact I really like the diaclone colors for it, however all of the ones I've found on ebay have been pretty pricey.

    That’s an awesome pickup for sure congrats :thumb 

    Was never big on all the various Ultra Magnus paints out there but I’ve always wanted this one as the colors on it just suite the toy so perfectly. One of the very few paints out there I always through that exceeded the original (by original I mean the original UM as I know this paint came first in Diaclone) Funny you posted this too as I was just thinking about this toy a wile ago and how I would like to get it one of these days.

    Again congrats that’s defiantly an awesome pickup in my book.

    Congrats ikado! I've neven been fortunate enough to own Diaclone Magnus. Will someday though, and a few other diaclones. They rule.
    Golden Showers Magnus teehee. If you're ever in a snow jam, just toss him in and you'll be free. Would be like a grenade.

    Your cat is talking to me.

    You won that? Lucky man! Helluva deal, less than $100 each. I still gotta get me a yellow Magnus.

    As for life after the grail, there's always more. :p  I got the guy in my sig not long ago but there's still plenty more rare things I'm after.

    Glad you won that auction. I'd been watching it all week, as I also have been looking to get a Diaclone Magnus. In the end I decided to save money for another auction coming up.

    Then I lost an auction for a MISB Dirge... the bastard literally took me to my limit. :( 

    Plus last month I actually won a Diaclone Magnus for $175.... but the seller flacked on me. So here I am Magnus-less and Dirge-less-ness.

    You better enjoy that bastard... you bastard. :D

    Ebay:
    TRU Dirge, E-Hobby Dirge, or Vintage G1 Dirge?

    We're lucky since Dirge has no missles the Hasbro reissue is perfect (unless you just want an original).

    As for the Diaclone Magnus.. I can't wait! I've been hunting for him for over 2 years. I should have bought one for $90 back in the day.. stupid me.

    Awesome find! I got my holy grail over a year ago, a G1 Galvatron, for a really good price on ebay. My grail now is G1 Grimlock, complete. Don't worry though, once you get this, there will always be something else you'll find as a grail.
