Takara Transformers Asia Exclusive Henkei Ultra Magnus

Weapon: Gattling Gun
It appears the rumors are true, Takara will be releasing Classics Ultra Magnus in the Asian market. Earlier in the month Seibertron member Primeultimus reported purchasing what was assumed to be an unreleased prototype of Henkei Ultra Magnus, which sparked quite a debate regarding the figure's authenticity. Since then Seibertron member 千代爸爸 has also reported purchasing one of these figures off TaoBao, and has went on to post some in-hand images of the figure (see below).

Now site sponsor Robotkingdom has confirmed that Takara will be releasing this figure in the Asian market late September/early October. As you can see the figure sports a new deco and chrome. They have also posted a pre-order, the figure is priced at $67.90. A great opportunity for those who missed out on the Target exclusive version!

About damn time Takara, how long has it been since Henkei started? It's a shame it won't look good in City Commander. Too much white will show in it. Though, I wonder if Fansproject are rubbing their hands together and planning a rerelease of the armor. Maybe even a new limited run in slightly different colors.

O, I prefer chicken myself. :lol:

I did have doubts at first, I admit, but with TakaraTomy confirming it, well... Color me surprised. I wonder what brought them to this. I already have the Hasbro one, so I see no need to get him.

BTW I thought Asia was Hasbro Asia territory.

His being too white matters not. The armor cover him anyway and the lower extremities is just as it should be just like the G1 version.

Money. Did you see that price tag of almost $68? I'm glad I have the original release already. Ignoring the price tag the paint is awesome. I like it.

Postby craggy » Mon Aug 27, 2012 9:52 am

only thing I can see as maybe being a problem is that his thighs are silver. the hasbro one has white thighs which make the CC armour look more G1. so it's actually not a case of "too much white will show", but quite the opposite. Still, the KO Magnus I have has the armour sitting all wobbly. Hopefully this one will fit it better.
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Blurr, or 3rd Party iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.

Takara superior. :APPLAUSE:

Hasbro inferior. :sad:

Six years in the past, Takara made these toys all right. But they let Hasbro be the first to release them as Classics, but their way (wrong details, neon Megatron). Two years later, Takara wanted to show Hasbro that their doing them the wrong way. Luckily, Takara made these as Henkei figurines but this time, the G1 way.

Another reason why Takara is MUCH more better than Hasblow.

High hopes for UM's own trailer. :PRAY: :PRAY: :PRAY: :PRAY: :PRAY: :PRAY:

Im sittin here lookin up at my authentic city commander armor with henkei optimus inside and I just cant imagine him looking any better. (dont care about the truck mode)
The red arms look so much better than the white, he doesnt look like he's wearing an AC slater shirt showing off white abs because the red blends in, his legs are silver so his kneepads pop more and the dark blue works fine and is hardly noticable. Plus the red gun looks better than the white one with all that silver trim. of course the silver machine gun looks cooler than a black one.
Its cool that asians can get a classics magnus though. seems more like dreamwave style with the white legs. I dont see it looking very good in the armor though.
anyone rockin their magnus with henkei prime? back me up on how sweet it looks! :BOT:

Like you are going to look at the based figure with the Power Armor on. Its the armor that makes Magnus.............well Magnus. Btw, if you own a G1 version, just look at how the all white figure works.

I think this mold looks spectacular painted white! I really like it a lot. I do think, however, that i like the Hasbro version just a tinsy bit better with the blue legs but i certainly won't say that i "dont't" like this total white one. Especially because of G1 accuracy.

I'm glad i have the Hasbro version already but i'd be tempted to buy this "naked :lol: " Magnus to stand beside my FP armoured up one.

68 bucks is a little steep though but not too bad i guess. Not including shipping of course.

The arm kibble completely spoils this mold for me. I do not own one and do not regret not owning one. I will easily pass on this one. My only regret regarding this mold was that I skipped the 2-pack with skywarp and I do regret not getting skywarp when I had the chance.

Well, the mold IS a shell former of sorts hence the kibble. The things you have to pay to make him look like a truck at the same time.GF Convoy on the other hand......now that's how you do a modern Convoy!

Not that I have anything to complain about this mold either, oh wait, no 'stacks while in 'bot mode :lol:
