    I have no problem with white Primes as Magnus' generally, but Alternity Magnus' robot mode is just so bland, especially compared to the black repaint.

    End of October. I suspect a lot of people are looking forward to it.

    I'm a sucker for Ultra Magnus as well. Want this and the re-release of red Convoy.

    I like how Ultra Magnus looks, but that white could stand to be broken up a bit. Perhaps slapping on a few Cyberglyphics would help remove the bland feeling of a white car?

    Damn it, for some reason it is getting harder and harder to stay away from the Alternity line. I know one of these days I am gonna break. Probably will be the day before Hasbro announces that they will release them domestically.

    They should just call him agnus. Way more suitable for a naked magnus

    I preordered him, but hell I hope the paint on mine is less sloppy.

    Also, that clear prime looks a lot nicer than the original colouring. The clear actually seems to hide a lot of the mold crappy-ness

    Not bad. Would have made a cool Jazz with a new head.

    Now... Can we please have some new Alternity moulds please??? I know BT releases were slow but this line is as bad as the MPs!

    Typically the only 2 lines I collect.

    Sorry, but this dates all the way back to the 1986 Ultra Magnus toy, so White Prime does equal Ultra Magnus. Besides I don't think a Nissan GT-R could pull a car carrier:D

    They just got in today. Processing right now.

    Too bad I just shipped my POL after the Bruticus upgrade kits landed in it. Now this Ultra Magnus fig is going to be the first item added to my next POL that I probably won't ship for quite awhile. :(

    It might date back all the way to 1986, but Ultra Magnus included the armour, not just a white prime, and has never in the cartoon continuity been just a white Prime.
    Unfortunatley (IMO) just about every Magnus since then has been a white repaint of Prime in an attempt to get the most money out of a mould.

    It's a trend that I personally find lazy and requires no imagination, and basically brings nothing new to a figure. Unfortunately I wasn't able to get a hold of the City Commander, otherwise I'd be quite happy with that. I'm still holding out for a new proper Ultra Magnus toy though.

    Just my thoughts, feel free to disagree.

    I wish they added some color to break up that monotony but alas. Either way I still want that Ultra Magnus.

    If anyone did have one, can you post some pics of the comic and what's the story about?
