    When that new batch of Rainmakers is released, do you think I will be able get a Nova Storm separately for a decent price or will the current insane prices still hold? I would like to pick up only Nova Storm but I'm wondering if I should just pre-order the whole set & sell the other 2. I didn't pull the trigger on Nova Storm when he was being sold for around $30 on ebay & now I'm kicking myself.

    Is anybody here buying the set & wants to sell Nova Storm separately?

    Just got Jetfire last week and he's awesome, a great big Marshmallow Man of a bot, but he's still in the process of learning what the pecking order is around here:

    I’m actually torn on which version of Ultra Magnus I should get; Siege

    2E40E0B5-79C3-47FD-9AD0-304A295DE739.jpeg

    Or Kingdom

    The changes between UM in my opinion are minimal enough not to warrant another $50 figure, and as others have noted, I do not like the gap on the Kingdom Truck Mode, so I am good.

    Yeah like the other 2 posts above, prefer the Siege version due to it being a cyber vehicle.

    I consider that the Kingdom has better shoulder missiles launchers, and that is the only thing that's an improvement, but still, those should be two pieces items to be as it should be.

    Everything else, Siege is by far better... the details are much better, and while the KD version has the cab being the earth truck, there's lots of things that looks off/weird with the design.

    The chest that was a small flying ship is so much better on the Siege version that it makes KM look like a cheap KO. Same with the "belt".

    The thing I hate is the gaps, especially the shoulder pylons so a gap filler kit is really a huge improvement. Sucks hard that Hasbro didn't even bother fixing that.

    The face mold is also a lot better on Siege, again, KD looks like a cheap KO. And the two black guns being canned for KD is another kick in the teeth. And the gap thing is just so worst. They really should have done a serious rehash of the mold and fix things... make it able to carry cars inside the trailer, make the trailer an actual trailer that can pivot with a proper hitch, fill the gaps, etc. THAT would have possibly swayed me, but they did nothing better aside those missile launchers, but actually worst.

    Simply: Every time I look at the KD, the more I don't like it.

    I'm actually really excited for the Kingdom Magnus, I completely understand where people are coming from and their complaints are valid.

    But I really think Kingdon Magnus's Earth mode IS an upgrade over the Siege, I get Siege was a homage to RID but to me it's ugly as sin. Yeah it doesn't come with the black guns, but I'd taken them off Siege as they were awkward as hell for him to hold or do anything with.

    Would I have liked a more faithful G1 Trailer/armour, sure, but the small/big changes done to the Kingdom are a big win for me, plus I really like the bright white.

    Only thing I'd have liked was for the shin armour to be painted like it is on the box art (blue instead of white on the sides) but no biggie I'll do it myself.

    I guess general consensus says Siege Magnus over Kingdom. Ok, now I just need to get him and the DNA kit, as well as Siege Ironhide/Crosshairs’ weapon to use as Magnus’s hammer since the DNA kit one is way too small for him

    I went and painted a Smashdown silver with black wash, and an extension for the handle and it turned out perfect for UM. Just to give you an idea.
