    I'd argue that we need better pictures.

    After really looking at the pics, I'm kind of bummed about this. I was actually looking forward to a Magnus repaint (love the mold), but I really just don't like the deco. It works for Hotlink better, but the stark charcoal color on Magnus that replaces entire areas instead of enhances them just doesn't sit well with me.
    I do like the Targetmaster, effect pieces and Energon cubes, but not enough to keep my pre-order. This is the first time I've cancelled a pre-order like this.
    Oh well, the money I was going to spend on this will be put towards three of the Reflector repaints.
    Win/win.

    when I look at them side by side, it definately makes me think one thing, wish I could isolate Ultra Magnus out of my preorder, but also I don't think Hasbro will ever be able to do this successfully again. I think the spoiler was Battlefield Rung, but even if that was the spoiler why hide Magnus too? We thought we were in for something really really special after looking at Hotlink and Megatron. I think you hit the nail on the head, they replaced areas instead giving us the dry brushed wear; especially the stacks. I think the better move would have been to get drastic with unarmored Magnus and go with lighter wear for the armor. Oh boy what will the fandom name him?

    Im sure the whole deco is to say magnus dies in the end. I hope minimus ambus, agent of the tyrest accord picks up his armor.

    For the people that wanted it to come with the cloak, you can always just mold the putty into the shape of a cloak.

    Well, that spoiler pack was a shockingly easy pass. Yuck.

    Man, I wish. But it's said on the Zavvii listing IIRC that the cybertronian inside the box is the spoiler aspect.

    Really wish the "spoiler" was the cloak shown in the trailer. Or something like it that adds to Magnus. Still a cool repaint that fits with the other repaints in the line.

    Unfortunately not. Just a partial picture. I tried to translate it:
    However now I think Chris is right and it isn't an L but an E on the second line. E and L look very similar in the Cybertron alphabet.

    I'm using clear purple dice (no numbers) for energon cubes in my collection. I'm curious how the official cubes compare and how the ones you got on ebay compare too.

    It looks good but not $60 worth. I think i'll wait for a sale.

    That doesn't explain why the box doesn't let you see the toy.
    I'm talking about the toy. Why was the toy a spoiler?

    No, I getcha, but come on. There's a major difference between trying to do something that will both make a profit AND do somethign special and then there is just bad marketing.

    I have no qualms with toy companies being, you know, companies. I like some stuff that would otherwise get me thrown into a volcano by some fans, I'm sure.

    With the reveal of Ultra Magnus, I can now say that there is absolutely nothing in this line I want.

    I am never going to get a Delta Magnus/Sentinel Prime/Powered Convoy from this mold.
