    Oh man! I'm totally behind this! While I'd like to see some mold improvements, I'm okay with the size of him. They don't call him Ultra Magnus for nothing.

    Yeah this has been popping up a lot lately and they always follow the same format- random crap mixed with a few expensive Transformers.

    Always private auctions- and feedbacks of 300 or less. The most blatant evidence is in the auctions themselves. If you just click around the store, you can see none of the information comes from the same seller, its all copy/pasted from other auctions. The info, text, shipping options, none of it matches up. Not to mention the photos. There are always deals to be had, but if you think you're getting a $200 (average market price) Takara item for less than $100, you're an idiot. Now if you want a cute little Takasa Tony, then go for it! Those things are cheap.

    I've politely asked a few of them 'why their prices are so good' and I always get the same cookie cutter answers "we have a good relationship with the manufacturers" or "we are the manufacturers, so we can offer good prices". I'd like to say I helped EBAY shut down 5 scammers this month.

    Lol, even a 100 seems overpriced for an MP um. That thing is beyond simple.

    Why do people keep posting time wasting prototypes as "KO"? Imo this thread should be deleted. Waste of time.

    he lists it as a new, original, takara product, and at just $36 its still the most expensive item he's sold. he doesnt appear to have sold any TFs before. 89% feedback.
    back away. yes you get your money back but when ebay has to pay both you and them, that money has to come from somewhere... which is higher fees for the rest of us including you.

    Just spend the money and get the real deal. It's worth it for the truck alone. When you have him with mp10 you won't give a fuck about that money. Trust me. Instant nostalgia hard on

    Hope it's undersized. If it's undersized and the knees are done with metal I'll buy this and the delta Magnus reprint for sure.

    But if it's 1:1,
    I'll still buy it as long as they fix the damn knees.

    This has worse knees than MP-09 imho

    Given THF's recent history with KOs (MP13 and MP36) it will be 1:1 standard MP size.

    They seem to have quick turn around, too. I'd expect this end of December. Just to beat the reissue.
