    And that's why I brought Dr. Egg which costs 175 bucks. English is not my native language excuse my crude explanation. Assuming 175 is 100% how much of that we pay for the sculpt - the actual toy (bared of electronics)? I don't believe that sculpt cost them that much if not for unnecessary gimmick. If one can buy a Gigapower toy for 200 bucks which is similar pricewise to Dr. Egg there is no way the price they charged for electronics and everything associated with it was 10-20 bucks as that sculpt doesn't look like it's worthy of 100 bucks let alone 150.

    Edit. Before I read the earlier post about pre-order price my expectation of how much this was gonna cost made me compare this pricewise with electronics and other gimmicks with latest XTB products. I admit, my number was out of proportion.

    What other Magnus would come out that would be under that number? A Takara v2 would cost more, FT would certainly cost more, MMC would most likely be right around or above that price..

    Too bad it's MP. Looks really nice.

    I only collect mainline now. MP is way way out of my price range anymore.

    TFCON posted a shot of 4 display cases to their FB and said that they were intended for bots that didn't arrive in time d/t shipping delays.

    It may have been for XTB products but no confirmation on that.

    If only they had gone with a white robot and power armor figure like they once hinted at many years ago.

    My guess is that elsewhere with shipping included and some markup that translates to about $230 retail that is about the same as TT MP-22 at retail. I would be surprised if it hit that but maybe with Deathsaurus being 15 inches or FT Phoenix height at $300 this might be a realistic price target. Just hoping I am not proven naive and foolish by the end of the day with a $300 preorder.

    I’ve been trying to figure how the heck it tuck/hide/cover all the trailer bits into the legs and still look like legs and not cobble together trailer parts

    Overall really nice looking figure.Maybe the best of X-Transbots.

    I assume that Rodimus/Rodimus Prime is also on the way.

    Wow! XTB has come such a long way since I left the 3P scene. Their attempt at magnus looks phenomenal! Very clean all around. Correct height. Lean and slim. Fantastic work!

    The more i look at this, the more i like it. Ive been trying to work out the transformation, the trailer appears to be straight forward and there is a hinge visible between the front cab and the rear of the truck.

    Best guess is the rear truck wheels slide up next to the gray matrix chamber to provide shoulder support. The cab then folds on that hinge so the roof of the cab can be opened and rotate the head panel out. Then the cab origamis into the rest of the chest and possibly flips part of the cab out to form the back of bot mode.


    I want it.

    not bad. it'll be more here in the US but now that we know the price for a place not too far away from china, we can sort of guess what it will be here. also man, that face is SPOT ON. i don't know what people are talking about. i'm just going by mental memory though. in that photo u posted, that IS magnus. no question, like way better than the mp-22 face even (mp-22's best feature lol).

    Got a preorder email from BBTS, which was my first time hearing about this.

    Impressive. Most impressive.

    I didn’t think Ultra Magnus could be done this close to G1 animation accuracy, but X-Transbots did it. You son of a bitch, you did it.

    Did XTB just forget to go to TFcon or something? Seems like they've shown more lately than everybody else at that show put together.

    I keep trying to get out and they keep pulling me back in! Damn you, X-Transbots!

    On a completely unrelated note... anyone want to buy a never transformed THF04 Hyper Magnum?
