    Why? It means you get Delta Magnus AND Magna Convoy in one package. For some of us, the Ehobby Delta Magnus was "the one that got away" and others want an affordable Magna Convoy that doesn't cost $250+.

    Haha anything but Delta Magnus lol, I like the gray though.  If it was normal Price I\'d take another look.

    Ultra Magnus looks cool but I bought the Netflix spoiler box on the cheap and I got Kingdom retooled Ultra Magnus as well so I'm good on this mold family as Ultra Magnus.
    Delta Magnus/Powerd Convoy as people have mentioned, that I'd be intrested in... or maybe even a new Urine Magnus (if they dial back on the transparent plastic).

    I'm surprised it Isn't ROTF Megatron getting the "Premium Finish" treatment considering how bland that figure looks with It's lack of silver paint.

    Hasbro has now released 3 different Leader Ultra Magnus's. 2 have gotten multiple repaints as the same character. (CW - Platinum 86 movie set, TT Legends, WFC:S - Netflix Spoiler pack, TT Premium Paint), so that's 7 releases and no Delta Magnus. With how much love they've been giving Diaclones in Gen Selects, it just seems like low hanging fruit for Selects or a Store exclusive. ESPECIALLY with the money Magna Convoy and eHobby Powered Convoy go for these days.

    I mean, I hate the Siege/Kingdom mold and I'd be all over a Powered Convoy/Delta Magnus repaint.

    (and I totally get that this sin't the line here they'd do it... but it's also not looking like the line for "screen accurate" premium redecoes either with old Magnus the Grey here...)

    I feel like he should be called "The Dirty Magnus".

    Y\'know, weird that the days are gone when Takara would have gone for the braindead option of \"black repaint\" or \"Diaclone hommage\". I kinda miss those

    I did read the description of the line and I'm happy for people like you that like this approach. I just stated it's not my kind of premium. And that I find it odd they went into this direction since the Netflix subline is already trying to achieve the same thing. It doesn't add much to what's already out there. Unlike the Legends line which did that better in my opinion. Not trying to offend anyone here.

    For the price point, it's really too bad Takara didn't take a cue from DNA Design and extend the legs a bit to be in a better proportion.

    So I could buy SS Megatron on bigbadtoystore right now for around $38 shipped or wait for this with its little bit more gray paint scheme for what will like be around $61 shipped. I think I'll just pick up SS.

    I wanted to be a completest (missed out on the Japan SIEGE nemisis-prime) but the premium finish bots I may cancel my other orders on. Definitely not getting this one unless it goes on clearance (doubt it will).

    Magnus is hot garbage. Definitely the weakest mold I\'ve ever bought 3 of, I can\'t do 4. Megatron looks nice, enjoy.

    I’m pretty sure this particular mock-up was before the Kingdon release was announced.

    But I agree. Kingdom mold and yellow eyes and this thing has my money instantly.
