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.

Is there a preorder anywhere? I hope e-tailers get him at $60 still.

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.

I dont think this new head makes a good reflector. In the cartoon reflector did not have a face plate. Im not sure about the G1 toy. But on the toy, the 3 robots were different colors and Funpub is too cheap to do that with a troop builder set. But I like the face plate on Magnificus. It's Diaclone accurate and will look great on my classics Diaclone shelf.

Perceptor was Microman, as was Reflector. Supposedly they even had the same designer >:oP

So they'll do a mix of toy and cartoon: make all three the same color Perceptor repaints, but only one gets the alternate head. Spyglass (blue) and Spectro (red) had mouths, but Viewfinder (black) had a mouthplate as toys. It's an idea, and they're not shy of using alternate head if the SG Junkions are any indication.

Why are people bringing up Fun Pub/TCC with this? This is all e-HOBBY/TakaraTomy.

Regarding SG Perceptor, he's dead.

Regarding Relfector, Takara's the only one who have shown any sign of making it a reality with that listing of theirs. Hasbro's original idea appear to be in limbo.

Regarding MW Soundwave, there's already three Soundwaves in the story. Why bring in a fourth?

We were talking about BotCon possibilities my dear, the souvenirs to be exact. I think having the Reflector trio as the Troop Builder set, with Viewfinder as the commander with a unique head isn't such a farfetched idea. :)

Wasted how? I can practically guarantee that this was the other tooled and intended head for the mold. I say overdue. I absolutely didn't want a straight up repaint if this head was available for use. Especially considering Magnificus and SG Perceptor in their only appearances have this design. If you really need Magnificus with the Perceptor head, I do a have a spare from the RTS figure I could simply give you. Minor transplant and there you go!

I know that I wanted one of these when the Club announced their partnership with e-hobby, but RK's price, $85 plus shipping, for a deluxe is outside my current price range.
(spake he whom was able to pre-order the star savior before christmas, and is still paying it off)
Maybe the club will include it in their subscription figures for next year???

e-Hobby has posted a sneak peek at the cover of the exclusive comic that will come with their upcoming Magnificus. TFCC will also be offering this figure domestically at a price of $90.00, pre-order open on Monday, April 15th and run through May 8th. Check out the cover art below.

Another guess as to the identity of the hand is:

The gorilla one, that is.

Awhile back, Hydra mentioned doing something with Magnificus and the unreleased Double Pretenders gorilla in this comic. Sure, yeah, he did say that in April 1st, but... not everyone was joking around that day, so... yeah, maybe.

There also exists a black version of the figure:

e-Hobby has tweeted a couple of new in-hand images of their upcoming exclusive Magnificus. They've also updated his profile on their website with a color version of the previously revealed comic cover and his bio.

Once Military Affairs Advisor for Mebion, Magnificus was betrayed by an unknown comrade and banished to frontier space. Forced to serve as a gun-for-hire, he has spent long years on the run from bounty hunters with his comrade-in-arms, Gamede. But the pair has finally found a means to achieve their revenge: body data stolen from Perceptor using Gamede's ability to shrink to atomic size! Redesigning his body using this data, Magnificus has successfully mastered the art of "Psychometry", which is the ability to see residual images by scanning objects and other lifeforms. Can Magnificus master this ability and use it to determine the identity of his betrayer?

It's a rough translation. Physical fitness should be "Strength", Intellect "Intelligence", Durability "Endurance", Teamwork "Rank", Firepower "Fireblast", and Skills just "Skill".

Because it looks like no one updated this posting, TFCC is selling this figure for $82, and with $9.85 USPS Priority shipping I'm getting this guy for a total of $91.85.

So if you're thinking about getting this figure AND you already have an active club account, this is better than the usual online retailers (I'm sure there's a legit business reason for this too).
Re: e-Hobby Fully Reveals Their Next Exclusive Magnificus (1481127)
Posted by El Duque on April 22nd, 2013 @ 11:02pm CDT
e-Hobby's official YouTube channel has been updated with a video showcasing their upcoming exclusive Magnificus, a redeco of Reveal the Shield Perceptor featuring a brand new head sculpt. The video is in Japanese, but they've been kind enough to provide an English transcript of the video as well.



English translation:
Hello, Transformers fans! This is Andrew from e-HOBBY. Today, I'm going to show you an early sample of Generations Magnificus!

And does it ever look good, with that clear red and silver chrome! This is still a prototype, though, so the final version should have more details that will make it look closer to the sample on our product page. The release is a few months off, but don't forget that reservations end on May 8th!*

Robot mode:
In robot mode, of course the first thing you notice is the retooled head, which is based on the toy version of Perceptor. United Perceptor had a different, kind of friendly-looking face, but for the revenge-bent Magnificus, it's all about the faceplate.

The painted yellow eyes are another important point. If the toy used the built-in light piping feature, it would end up with eyes in the same clear red color as its chest. Magnificus is a little different than normal Autobots and Decepticons, being a lone-wolf type, so I think the eyes are key for him. The back of his head is painted black so that the colors match well.

This is a little different than the G1 Magnificus, but the chest window is colored in clear red. You can open or close it to change the color balance of the figure in a cool way. The chrome parts from G1 Magnificus are authentically recreated with his chest panel and arm dials.

Actually, there's one more big reason that the chest is colored like this, which G1 fans may pick up on right away. Being that he's a former military consul, you would imagine that Magnificus is good at analyzing the abilities of his foes, right? To convey that, the chest is colored so that it can be used as a tech spec decoder!

By the way, I've heard some fans say that they wish Generations Magnificus had some hand-held weapons to choose from. Well, it just so happens that Magnificus's fists use 5-mm holes, a common standard from G1. What this means is that for those of you that own the 2005 release of G1 Magnificus, its rifle and missile launcher can be used here to fully arm the new Magnificus! These weapons here are actually G1 Perceptor's. The Ga'mede figure from the 2005 release also has a very nice size balance when paired with Generations Magnificus.

Vehicle mode:
Now it's time for vehicle mode. There are just as many fine details here are there are in robot mode. The clear parts such as the lights and windows are red, giving him a Nemesis Prime-like impact. The bumper parts are painted in metallic silver, but the details on the treads and grill are gunmetal-colored. To avoid the toy looking plain in black, it's got tons of detailed paint apps.

Finally, there's the license plate... "Mebion" is spelled out "M3810N," so it's convincing as a vanity plate. "MEBION" was the keyword from our first press release, and it was hidden among three glowing red circles. The image for those was these three red lights. It only took about 2 hours for fans to deduce that the new figure would be Magnificus, so I guess we need to make the hint a little more difficult next time...

Comic:
The 8-page comic is still in production, so I can only show you the cover right now, but I hope everybody will be looking forward to it! It's got Ga'mede, and this enigmatic gorilla-like dude here, in a Western-styled story where the bad guys get the spotlight. I think that Decepticon fans will have a lot of fun reading it.

That concludes this video review, but I'll be doing a special review next time, comparing G1 and Generations Magnificus! Until then... IT NEVER ENDS!

*May 8th is the planned cutoff date for orders shipped within Japan. For international orders, please contact our partner, the Official Transformers Collectors' Club.
