    I meant how much would the trailer run. The Prime one was over $100, then there was the panels later.And the prime trailer had less parts. So $200 or more? When would it come out so I can budget. Do you still use the same ebay name? I have it book marked?( okay i admit I want it bad)

    Uhm... don't they know someone already made a bad-ass armor/trailer piece for Ultra Mag? They can't top City Commander... really. Just ain't gonna happen. To make things worse they would need to have it live up to the Masterpiece line. THIS.. is definitely not Masterpiece anything.

    Bwa ha ha.


    Uhm... don't you know that Classics and Masterpiece are two different lines? You don't have to buy it. There are plenty of people who
    already have the trailer for Classics Magnus and will buy this one too.

    There's something I just don't like about it - if it were way cheaper I might pick it up, but over $200? Not a chance.

    That's a very nice idea. I'll wait for final pics and prices before I decide "yay" or "nay" but I'm certainly interested to see more.:thumb

    I think this will get a better response when you show the proto in actual colors. Some better shots of the face and any extra tidbits would probably add to the intrest. It looks pretty poseable, what kind of poses can you get?

    I realize that, but it doesn't stop this one from looking second rate. You would think the "Classics" version of such a piece would be the cheaper looking of the two.. not the "Masterpiece" one.

    I love your Prime Trailer, (And I can vouch for the good quality) this looks great as well.

    As far as being better than City Commander, they are two separate things. Both are equally awesome, IMO

    I would LOVE to add this to my MP/Alt collection.

    Can you tell us if it holds the BT?Alts? (I am gonna guess it does ;) )

    And it if priced reasonable like the Prime trailer (I think it was $100 or so then) I would buy this, no question. even $125 would not be too bad a price for the custom you are getting.

    True G1 alt mode, while having poseability in MP scale - where do I sign up?

    amazing job, man, keep us posted! :)

    Also, I just picked up MP-02 Ultra Magnus MISB in the new production run from BBTS for 104.99.

    The one thing that's kept me from getting an MP-02 is the fact that he doesn't have the trailer. He glaringly incomplete without it. If this is produced I definitely want to get one and finally pick up Ultra Magnus




    I got hosed on a deal for that add-on set. I bought it through eBay, but my set had 2 outer left side panels and no outer right side panel. The seller kept saying he'd send the missing piece but it never came. The time had passed for me to be able to file a claim with Paypal, and then the seller disappeared.

    Anyone on here know how to contact the guy who made them? Or did anyone happen to get an extra right outer panel? I'd really like to get that missing piece.
