Imminent Beast Wars Transmetal Optimus Primal repaint/retool, anyone?

Wow. Crazy obscure reference! Makes me wonder if they might release these guys as part of the 30th anniversary or something.

I wouldn't bet on it, but I would like to see an attempt at a modernized Pretender (Thunderwing and Black Shadow are out of the question).

Yeah, unless they were vintage style figures, I'd probably have no interest in a new "line" of pretenders. I think in the era of HeMan figures, you could get away with awkward, muscle-bound mustached guys and walrus-dudes and bugs wearing belts. Twenty years later, all that gets a raised eyebrow from this guy. Nostalgia would be the only thing to get me to bite.

That said, if the original toy was the same size shell (which it reportedly is)... the TWO interior bots would have to be about cassette-bot sized. That by itself makes me a lot more interested. A modern version would have a real Soundwave and his minions kinda feel, I'm guessing. That might be a selling point.

But yeah, the original gorilla toy looks pretty cool for his sculpt. Too bad it never came out. Was one of the better molds. Black is definitely the better of the two colorings.

Unreleased spider looks kinda silly, IMHO. Okay. No "kinda" about it. Flat silly.

Well that's just frikkin' awesome. Man I'd love to get my hands on the Gorilla Pretender. I'll take a modern day update to a figure we never got as well.

I like that Ga'Mede is in the comic. What I don't like is that he isn't included with Magnificus. My two cents is that it's kind of a jerk move.

e-Hobby continues to tease the release of their upcoming exclusive Magnificus. They're now posted several more pages from the exclusive comic that will come packed with the figure. As previously reported the comic appears to feature the never released Gorilla Double Pretender. It also looks as though G2 Eagle Eye is in the mix. Images mirrored below.

Which would be his European name ;) Nice cameo there. I wouldn't be surprised if e-Hobby used the name of his canceled Japanese release, Hawking.

And it looks like Scrash is rearing his ugly head in the last panel.

I really like this Magnificus Exclusive figure. I pre-ordered from BBTS as soon as I saw it, according to their site it is estimated to arrive May 2013 so it should not take too long. :grin:

Pretty cool. Is that an antimatter energy cube he is holding in the last clip?

We previously reported on eHobby Magnificus, which is a redeco of Reveal The Shield Perceptor. (You can preorder yours here for $82.00)

Now, fellow Seibertronian Sabrblade alerted us this morning to an email he received the collector's club store telling him his eHobby Magnificus has been shipped! He had this to say:

$82 + shipping is a bit pricy. Maybe if he were $50.

Indeed. The chrome is pretty, though.

Congrats Sabr! :APPLAUSE: Hope you enjoy it! :x

I kind of agree with Megatronus here. But even $50 is a lot for what's otherwise a repaint. Ehhh, I'm just peeved it's not a microscope proper, really, so I went 3rd Party. #-o
