And then yes we're glad they made it, but its not up too par, like not enough articulation, the wrong weapon(s) or just the wrong damn color, the wrong size, the list goes on and on. And now we have Ultra Magnus in the right colors, and in the right G1 colors that i remember back from the 80s, but yet people are really tearing this mold apart cause now UM is too white and too plain? I mean i use to have a G1 UM as a kid yes i loved the armor he came with, but hell have of the time i didnt put it on him, i just like him white and looked great with OP and the other autobots. And even someone said that UM dropped his armor in the comics and he is all white in there too? All i can say is, yes i have the classics version of this mold and its pretty good, but for me i'd rather have one close to the G1 version as possible so ill keep mine on pre-order and i will say that he will a nice edition to the Autobot Team.
There is a saying I have that goes, "When you cannot look past your own views on things, then you are not seeing the whole world as it is." Meaning that when it comes to preferences and beliefs, not everybody looks past their own.
Myself, I am constantly contemplating on adding/seeking characters and series that may fit what I am going for when it comes to my collection. But even then, I always try to keep my preferences separate from my opinion on items. Because I personally like series-accurate reissues, while others prefer the vintage sets.
As for this item - and the fact I brought up the comic - I hear you on the subject. Currently, I have justified myself on not ordering it (yet) as I am wondering if they will have it be a Henkei! piece or not. If it is a Henkei! piece, then I might even though I am not sure how I would feel having him instead of of trying to obtain Skyfire.
So yeah... I'll stop right there since this is making me rethink the idea of seeking out Supreme Commanders that also existed between Fight! to Headmasters, since I am already collecting/seeking other Cybertron Commanders. And the idea kinda hurts my brain more than it does my wallet, BTW.
