Would you buy MP Ultra Magnus V2(if made) repainted as MP Diaclone Powered Convoy?

    No.

    While it would be a cool homage, it would be a tough sell on a $20 voyager figure, let alone a $250 + one.

    For me, if it releases under the name UMagnus, then yes. If it's under Prime, then no. I know about the Diaclone Powered Convoy back then, but until I saw the Movie Preview clip of UMagnus in his Diaclone colors that was when I started to have interested in those colors. Later, I also ended up getting the Movie Preview version when they reissue UMagnus in his Diaclone colors. Too bad I can't find that clip again or even forgot how it was circulated around the internet.

    If there's a MP UMagnus, I can almost guarantee Ehobby will release in his Diaclone Colors. So far, in an exception to MP5 Megatron, every MP mold gets a repaint.

    Never. Just don't care enough about or even like the Diaclone stuff. A partsforming albino Prime with "armour" will already be a hard enough sell for me.

    Hands down I'll buy a MP UM. Don't need a powered up OP though. Nor any other repaint version of UM. sorry.

    No interest here for it but I'd be surprised if there WASN'T one made somewhere down the road.

    No, because I'd only be buying Magnus and I don't double-dip on molds. However, I would not be against one being made for the people who want it.

    Yes, I'd rather buy a MP PC than a MP UM.

    Nah.

    I don't know if I'd get regular Magnus.

    I'd buy it so hard it would need a pregnancy test. Unless it was an eHobby thing or something elsr that would push it way past $250, then I'd have to think about it more.

    The blue convoy alone is exciting. The whole thing would be fantastic.

    More power to those who want it, but I have to say no. I'm just too much of a "casual" collector, I guess.

    No, but I'd want to see one created for those who do.

    No.

    But then I have very limited funds for MP TFs and if I was lucky enough to even get Magnus (in addition to an American released Prime), I would pretty much not be buying this.

    Power to those that want it, but to me pre-TF diaclone colors don't really me anything to me.
