    Yeah, I will take your word for it, and I will be waiting for the reveal. This changes my plan in a bad way. I wasn't planning on any MP-10 at all.

    I'm going to laugh my ass off when this gets KO'd.... by CHMS....

    Anyways, the new image is looking good. Much better than the first image, that's for sure.

    He kinda has to partsform. Having a separate cab and trailer combine into one robot inherently means a bit of partsforming. Now, if you want the trailer all be one piece that the cab/bot jumps into, then I suppose I can understand.

    I, frankly, couldn't care less if it partsforms or not as long as it looks good when it is done. UM gets a lot of forgiveness for doing it this way.

    6" Titanium Ultra Magnus would like to have a word with you.

    Was it confirmed though? With so much shit going back and forth, I don't recall if it was just speculation or if the insiders really confirmed that.

    You know you have the ability to turn your words into "fact", so I just want to confirm.

    I actually thought the same thing myself, but I want to make sure. In either case, that won't be out for like 3 years and will probably be like $350.

    From what I recall. They said that MP 10 was designed with UM or PM already in mind. I think that was expanded to mean that he already has connection points. They also said that they are testing out the $250 MP price point. Those sales will determine if they will continue with it. I take that to mean that UM will be at the $250 price point.

    So no nothing confirmed because TT needs more RnD before committing. So I heard, so I say.

    I can't recall the exact thread but it was an MP10 or 11 speculation thread. I remember it started off as every other spec thread and was about to die until some insiders stopped on by and then a ton of info was eluded to. So it went from lame thread to megathread.

    I won't pay $250 for a new MP Prime, but for a new MP Magnus with armor...?
    I hate hate, hate to say this, but there's a good chance I would. He's one of my favorites, and my willpower is not strong.

    I wouldn't pay $250 for the Prime but that is because I find the G1 trailer nothing more than a riser to display figures on, one hell of an expensive riser lol) I will get the eventual NA Prime release sans trailer.

    $250 for an MP Ultra Magnus though? Easy buy, Wasn't MP Hotrod
    $200 and a bit? And that came with a lame trailer.

    If he is going to try and argue that he is indeed a separate cab and trailer in alt-mode, then I'd love to hear how that conversation would go.

    Nope he will just argue that a combined cab and trailer mode can turn into a bot with no partsforming or no cab jumping into anything. Just the way he does :)

    I am thinking $350 because if someone is willing to pay $250 for Rodimus and Optimus, and their trailers barely do anything, it will be $350 if the trailer actually connects to the figure and break apart. Etc, etc.

    I really don't want to see that QC thread for that figure. I could already see the my paint chipped thread on that one.

    So he'll throw out argument that has nothing to do with what I was talking about?

    You must have missed the part where I specifically mentioned separate cab and trailer. :inquisiti

    I must have. But in the end, who is to say they need to be two seperate peices with attachable armour. MP UM will be but that is just because they are still looking at the figure in the same way. White Prime + armour.

    See now this actually looks like Ultra Magnus and not a nu-anime knock-off. But yeah, the face.

    BTW, there's a link to the video on youtube: CHMS Ultra Magnus - YouTube

    Gotta say he look interesting. Wonder if they'll have any prototypes up soon....

    Is it just me (maybe mentioned already) but the Prime mold looks like MP-10 to me.

    I just can not get over how silly the proportions are. He's got these huge arms and huge calves and tiny thighs and a short torso.

    Jeebus, that looks a lot more involved to transform than I had imagined. Definitely has a lot of promise.. hopefully they can pull it off well when it becomes a physical creation.

    It hasn't been mentioned but while watching the video I thought the same thing. That's too complex for 3rd party and not MP01 Prime. They must have obtained the mould like iGear scored the Seeker mould.

    I was just about to point that out. Between the proportions, the face, and the fact that most people are content with City Commander, I can't see this being too successful. The design and transformation does look pretty impressive, however.
