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:

Are there any decent KOs still around for not-too-much? I also picked up a weaponless Classics Prime when I saw it for cheap an he could use his own guns. :P


Go to Chimungmung's Toy Shop. I know he has the KO Prime's cheap. He might have KO Magnus too but Im not sure.

It just looks a little plain, not that I'm saying I don't like it; theres something missing that I just can't quite put my finger on.

Maybe I'm too used to the blue on my Classics one?

WHOOOOOOOOO! Finally some more Magnus love! I love that pic of him busting out of the armor. Hope everyone that doesn't have a Classics Magnus has a chance to get this guy.

Well it's officially ... A big fat hoax.

For those still believing this is official, let me say, 1 the pic picture is amateurish at best.

Takara would never use a 3rd party item to promote its toys.

Takara has never used the term Classics. Heck not even Hasbro used it. It's a fan term.

Combined with All the cloudiness surrounding th figure, I'm calling it a big fat, ugly, and worthless hoax.

1) Why wouldn't they? They KNOW it'll sell, and they have every reason to produce it. What's Fansproject going to do? Sue them? Somehow, I think not.
2) Okay? So they can start. Nobody used the term "Generations" before 2008/2009. Everyone already calls it the "Classics ____" mold, so why not use a term that's engraved into the fandom?
3) There's...really no cloudiness anymore. I mean, it was under debate at first, but there's no reason to doubt the authenticity at this point.

Those armor pieces actually look like the G1 toy, not the FP City Commander

Overcracker wrote:Takara has never used the term Classics. Heck not even Hasbro used it. It's a fan term.


And Fan terms can be made official. Like "kibble" and "faux-part" are now used by Hasbro's design team. Besides, we may import a lot of Japanese figures, but the opposite has also happened: Japanese importing Hasbro figures, and using our terminology as well. Don't underestimate our influence!

Fans project city commander armor is Flying off of him in the pic.

Why on earth would they use an American term for an Asian Exclusive (which by the way, Asian exclusives are a Hasbro thing not Takara) where nobody calls it that or knows the term?

Too many inconsistencies... Call me a scheptic but, I don't buy it.

Robotkingdom has already confirmed that this is an official release. These images come from an official website that was recently set up to promote all the new Asian market exclusives. The images look similar to the promo images e-Hobby used to promote Stepper and Artfire, and that's not FansProject CC armor in the image, it's G1 Ultra Magnus armor. As far as the Classics terminology, this whole Asian exclusive market is a new deal, they seem to be doing whatever they want.

Except that is HasTak G1 Magnus, not FP City Commander. I think (and hope) that it is legit. I prefer the all white to the white/blue.

Oh, Japan how I love you!

Granted your SIX years late to the party but it's cool bro :p

The Magnus is sick, Is it better then the U.S. version?

Too early to say. Personally, myself, I always found
classic magnus more eye catching and striking then
classic prime. The white just oozed detail & win.

I find it utterly depressing how many people on a dedicated transformers forum don't recognize the 80s G1 Ultra Magnus armor. That's the armor flying off in the promo picture, for those don't recognize it. It's not Fansproject's City Commander (which really does not look much like the 80s toy), nor is it an entirely new armor. I'm pretty sure it's just supposed to be a reference to the fact that the Classics/Generations line is supposed to be "neo G1".

As for the use of the term "classics", Asia is not somehow unaware of the fact that the line is well known as that in the US. Go look on Ebay at all the sellers in China, Hong Kong, Japan, and other Pacific/Asian regions properly labeling TFs as "Classics". The only thing I find odd is the mix of Classics and TakaraTomy being mentioned at the same time. Most "Asia" (not Japan) items are Hasbro, not TT.

No, that's "Classic Ultra Magnus" spelled in Japanese. To be exact it says:

"Ku-ra-si-kku U-ru-to-ra Ma-gu-na-su"

There is no armor.
