You know, if this was a year ago and canada was still on par with the states, these prices would be really good. I always thought takaa prices were 100% higher than US prices, but this price sounds perfectly fine to me due to the extra deco and import charges.

I recently got my hands on LG Arcee, Chromia, Windblade, and Jetfire and I have nothing but greatness to say about them. They all look amazing in every way over their Hasbro counterparts.

I especially love Jetfire and despite the thread that referres to Hasbro's version as pure unsatisfactory, I can honestly tell you Takara's version is just stellar! Regardless of the flaws they are totally out weighed by everything that is great about this Takara Jetfire. :BOWDOWN:

I got Roadbuster and Brainstorm on the way and judging by the figures mentioned above I'm sure to expect even more greatness when they arrive...another score Takara! :KREMZEEK: :VEHI:

Alpha Trin (Yes, that's spelled correctly: in Japan he is called Alpha Trin without the "o")? Is that supposed to tease us with whatever happened to Dion after War Dawn?

Grrrr, how much is this thing going to be? :sad:

The hovercar alt mode of Minimus Ambus actually fits:

BWTF posted an new image of Takara Tomy's TakaraTomy's Legends LG-14 Ultra Magnus! What is interesting is that in this image they show that Ultra Magnus may come with Alpha Trion instead of the Minimus Ambus that the Hasbro version comes with. From the looks of the picture Alpha Trion will be a repaint of Minimus! Please take all of this as rumors for now as this picture is unaccredited and unconfirmed. Check out the image we've mirrored below, and remember keep your optics tuned to Seibertron.com for the latest in news and updates!

You mean in order to get a fully comic-accurate Magnus I gotta buy Takara for the body AND Hasbro for Minimus?!

If you're gonna buy both and mix-and-match, I'm sure you can sell off Alpha quite quick.

I don't want to buy both. I want just one, but Takara just made doing that more difficult. :evil:

Yipee-skip!

So, if I want both I get double dipped for the equivalent of a $3 arms micron!

What a privilege to give Hasbro my hard earned cash for the smallest and cheapest to manufacture product that they can produce!!

Wow thats lame. If anyone wants a real classics Alpha Trion, get your hands on Titanian Saint. You wont be disappointed.

It's not really the Alpha Trion that's sellin it for me but Magnus's extra detail and paint apps. Looks sharp, blurry picture and all. Hasbro's inclusion of Minimus makes more sense though if we're following IDW's interpretation of Magnus. Alpha Trion as a minibot? What sense does that make?

Why did Takara go with red thighs for their version of Magnus? As tribute to the original G1 box art? I think I'll be happy with the Hasbro version. It's got a better color scheme and fewer paint detail embellishments that aren't on the G1 screen version.

Red thighs for IDW comic accuracy
