That is a bit steep for me, not worth it in my book.

That's not the final version pictured there right? What you get in the box will have a bit of paint on it?

It does say that it isn't painted in the pic. It also says it will have the same paint scheme as G1

I have to say, this looks pretty damn good. Kinda reminds me of a big-ass p*ssed off Gundam (which is never a bad thing). If I had Classics Magnus, hell, I'd pick this up. The concept colour looks bad-ass, too, but where are the missiles?
And is it just me, or does that trailer look like it's made of bricks when seen from the side?

I've pre-ordered one since my toy budget will have lots of funds stowed up from my disdain of Animated.

And it also looks really cool.

Looks neat, and thinking of getting it.
Not really intreasted in Animated, but gunning for most of the new molds in Classic2.0.

Looks pretty sharp; it would be good to distinguish Ultra Magnus from Prime, too. Apart from the paint colour, of course. I have to wonder now, though, how long it will be until someone comes up with the idea of issuing a trailer for Classics Optimus.

Incidentally, I love the write-up on BBTS. Definitely worth reading even if you're not tempted to view the armour.

Probably some sort of in-set compensation for the lack Magnus's signature shoulder missiles...

Edit:
On a side-note, here's hoping BBTS can work out a way to put out a package set of the City Commander Armour and Classics Magnus - becuase by damn I'd snap that up.

I believe these same guys may well be working on the problem.

I'm really looking forward to the Ultra Magnus armour though... Had it on pre-order since April despite moving house, it looks that damn good - and even better in sharp focus!

It would be rather nice to see a trailer for Classic Prime; admittedly the trailer isn't always that big on functionality (apart from mysteriously appearing and disappearing from the cartoon series) but still and all, there's just something comforting and familiar about his having a trailer. It will be interesting to see what they come up with.

Sir, as it happens.

I feel as though I should take a bow and I might yet after I finish laughing. That just made my day.

It's nice and all, but I probably wouldn't pick it up since it cost about three times what the Magnus/Skywarp pack cost.

Now if it came with Magnus, I could see paying that. Other than the creative liberties, it's just way too much to pay for Magnus with Skywarp pack, and then the armor for Magnus.
