    I like the Roadbuster color scheme, but the blue head ruins the whole look for me. Pass.

    No, now he just says "I'm a big rolling turd! Roll out!"

    Just kidding, yeah, he's got the same phrases if Shadow Blade Megs is an indication.

    Trouble with crap like this is ratilers don`t distinguish between crappy repaints that shelf warm and decent original stuff that sells well.

    Yes there here in MD found a couple in TRU, Walmart and Target. I guess the TF frenzy is dieing down here.

    I'm not picking up any Leader class repaints, especially since I don't dig repaints on Leader class figures. That, and I've been to four or five different Wal-Marts and never found even a hint that they had the regular Ultra Magnus on their shelves.

    i really don't see the point of this guy or shadow blade megs. two complete wastes of money imo. i predict they'll both be big time shelfwarmers and be on the clearance rack in the very near future.

    I look at RB Magnus and cry. "Hasbro" - Lets Repaint Ultra Magnus. What paint do we have left? "Hasbro Employee" - We have light Brown, Baby Blue, and Green. "Hasbro" - Great use it.
