Ugh... Here I am, sitting and hoping that GT-R Maximus is the 4th and final GT-R (2012 had 4 GT-Rs in Super GT), which would make a nice (possibly temporary) cap-off. Because by then, I would have a complete set of non-Convoy/Prime GT-Rs. And then this is confirmed.

Sonnofa... I just hope this version is not as cool as the original. :BANG_HEAD:

Are you talking about the same thing we're talking about?


Yes I am. A month ago, I had found the original e-HOBBY version, which came with Ga'Mede. One was MISB, and a second was graded by AFA. The whole background for these two were great, and I was tempted to get the graded version (as the non-graded version was not guaranteed the same condition or better). Because, I mean, how can you top the chance to have an "expanded universe" (Star Wars terminology) character that is a Destron who wants revenge on other Destrons? 8)

Which lead to my point. If the piece is the same as the original, the only point I would skip on him if he was a Generations piece. Do not collect that line. Otherwise, I need to refocus my plans and budget for the magnificent Magnificus. :lol:

Something this cool should end up in the Generations line for mass retail, not as an exclusive from foreign markets. I would import this beauty, but not for $60.

SG Perceptor already exists. Magnificus, based on the original Perceptor toy, was in the Botcon comic.

Both will work fine though.

Indeed, but I don't want a G1 Magnificus, I don't do G1 figs so he'd look real out of place.

Maybe the people in the bar are already drunk? :D

Not bad, in comparison to TFCC's stuff. Hope TFCC does not jack up the price IF they import it.

Anywho, that must be the alternate toy-accurate head Hasbro was talking about at BotCon 2011. I think Reflector will become a reality. ;)

Well, yeah, I'd have suggested him, but all the UT molds have been written off as too old and/or overused. I've been figuring this Perceptor mold would be used for MW Soundwave since we started guessing last year.

Slap on Hoist's new head and rework the color scheme on the mold and you have an armored research truck Soundwave. Not as awesome as an armored ICBM carrier, but the available alternatives for similar military vehicles is a bit lacking, and none of them have such a distinctive shoulder cannon.

But this is a bit off topic, so I'm gonna put an end to further speculation on MW in this particular thread.

This looks really awesome but I can't help but think that this was a wasted head mold. I think most of us would have been fine if Magnificus just had Perceptor's head. It's cool that he doesn't, but now I can't help but feel that I want to see Magnificus as Perceptor now.
