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.
Looking to acquire a complete set of the G1 Insecticons (Bombshell, Kickback, and Shrapnel). They dont have to be MISB, have the cards. The TRU re-issues are fine too. The only person that can verify my buying status is CounterPunch as he is the only person I have purchased from.

I love the way they have Magnus' armour flying off like hes busting out!!
It reminds me of an old Dreamwave incentive cover which I think perhaps Pat Lee pencilled [TBC by Matt Moylan!]?

Hmm.... Only just noticing how very white he is. Heaven's Warrior Magnus?

That armour breaking off of him looks bland enough that I hope they're not bothering to produce it.

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

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.

Sits with shotgun while on Troll Watch Duty.

Seriously, incase you havent noticed how the two armours are different, think of this, the G1 chest piece is somewhat thin, FP CC chest piece is bulky.

Look at picture, see chest piece? Good. Now, chest piece thin or bulky?

Anyone who says that chest piece is bulky, then... :BOOM: :BANG_HEAD:

Still, I thought this mould was toast, and then it has been used twice in quick succession. Naughty HasTak. 8)

Sick of these exclusives though. Where is Aisa, and is anyone living there willing to do a bulk buy for us? :saint:

How can anyone confuse G1 Ultra Magnus armor with Fansprojects City Commander? Look at the bad head, the full chest guard and the long shoulder stacks. That is the G1 armor. Anyone else hopeful that by including the armor in this picture, we might be getting a new Masterpiece Ultra Magnus with armor sometime in the future?

Damn it. Just to let my British brethren know that Kapow have this guy up for pre-order. £59.99. Too much! Still bought it though. The simplicity of the paint and lack of blue on the cab is byootiful. I reckon this will look awesome with the FP upgrade set.
