Is your CLASSICS Ultra Magnus feeling a tad naked? Does he need a little help to feel complete?

TFCLUB, the makers of the Cliffjumper upgrade and the upcoming Masterpiece Starscream upgrade, seem to have hit yet another homerun for upgrade sets.

A blurry picture, and some knowledgable TFClub customer talk on TFW2005 and the Allspark, seem to relate that this is true, and the best part, that the auctions should at least start at an affordable price and that there should be enough for most of the folks who want one.

Will this set come to fruition, and be available for the common folks to get at a reasonable price? Time will tell , but it is certainly interesting to consider.

You can see the thread with blurry image here.

Note: I did not go to the original link, because folks were complaining of viruses there, like last time.

Here's an auction for the CLIFFJUMPER UPGRADE SET from TFClub.

Whoa, with no forseeable new Classics Ultra Magnus on the horizon (due to the Animated one), this may be a must-purchase. Assuming it's pulled off well. Anyone have the Cliffjumper set that can vouch for quality?

awesomesauce. (there, i used it. :P )

though it's a tad bulky for my taste, here's hoping it actually transforms into a trailer. now that would make my Classics Magnus shine (and not be relegated forever known as "Naked Prime").

That would be sweet, but I'm not holding my breath. At least bot mode wouldn't look "naked."

:D :D Someone did mention that the armor does transform into a trailer and can be hauled by the classic Magnus.

For an unofficial product, it's sure is expensive for an upgrade on Cliffjumper and maybe on Magnus too.

Wasn't Hasbro gonna do this?
Well I'll wait till Classics Magnus or Animated Magnus comes out.
I ain't gonna dish out like... ALOT of money for that. I liked the Cliffy upgrade but it was expensive and this looks like it'll cost even more.

If the final bids for the cliffjumper set are any indication, this will be far out of reach for many collectors.

And with good reason, my collection is appraised and insured at $25,000 and even I cannot justify $250 + for some molded plastic parts to accessorize a $14 deluxe.

Nice, but if the going price is anything like CliffJumper's starting auction price, I'll have to pass.

I remember when those where first anounced they where supose to be like $30 or so.

$30 is one thing, $300(squiggly L)gets in the way of my rent. For an upgrade set, I can't justify it.

I wouldn't mind a set up for Magnus though, and upgrade him to ULTRA, but we'll just have to see the mark up when it hits. Till then, he's regular Magnus.

I knew that $30 price point was a bunch of BS and wouldn't last. Why would they sell them for $30 a pop when they have been going for $150+($300+ now) on Ebay?

God only knows what that Ultra Magnus set will sell for on Ebay. I wish it would be affordable but if the price of the Cliffjumper set is ANY indication, it will be waaaaaay out of most collectors reach, financially.

The blurry image is of an unofficial armor upgrade for CLASSICS Ultra Magnus. There is no existing mold for Animated Ultra Magnus to put these on. If you look closely you can see the forearm 'doors' hanging off outside the armor, and a blue leg in the bottom armor.

And at Botcon, I remember HASBRO saying that there would be (finally) a separate from Optimus Prime, brand new Ultra Magnus mold, but they did not say whether it was ANIMATED or CLASSICS. :-?

According to a poster who actually knows how to pre-order them on TFW...yes, and yes.


I assume to be able to pre-order you need to be a former customer, and they probably send out an e-mail, etc. :-?

Holy cow! I can't believe that Cliffjumper set is up to 355 now! that's still 10x the actual price. I'm very lucky I ordered mine last year.
I can't wait for the Magnus armor either. To all those wondering, the Magnus set will NOT be limited and it will be approximately $50. Apparently "Anyone who wants one, will get one."

Looks nice, now I wish I had picked up Magnus & Skywarp when they were in stores, I just don't like buying a recolor unless it's been retooled(well there's always eBay) but if it goes for the same price as that sweet CJ upgrade I'll unfortunatley have to pass.

How would one go about pre-ordering one? I sounds like you have dealt with these folks before.

I'm torn. I actually like him as Magnus. The Ultra armor's always seem like overcompancation to me.

Magnus: "Orion got the Matrix, I got the shaft!"

Alpha Trion: "Oh, is that not fair? Here have a male enhancement suit."

Don't get me wrong, I love Ultra Magnus. But as both a little brather and an older brother (Middle Child Syndrome! WHOO!) I can't help but think of it as a sibling thing.

Still, I want one and will probably get one. And a new Classics Magnus to wear it so I get the best of both worlds.

My Magnus is still mint in box so i have no use for this. Cool idea but seeing as how that Cliffjumper upgrade is extremely overpriced im gonna pass.
Re: TFClub to make CLASSICS ULTRA MAGNUS Armor Upgrade. (621558)
Posted by zemper on February 2nd, 2008 @ 8:45pm CST
finally, a good enough reason for me to open the Ultra Magnus vs. Skywarp MISB 2-pack. 8)

$50 is a bit overboard though.

I ordered mine through the Ozformers board so I haven't dealt with them 'directly'. A friend of the designer (who lives in Australia) is organizing Australian orders. I haven't heard any word on orders for anywhere else other than Australia and Hong Kong. As far as I know the Magnus kit seems to be a much larger run than the Cliffjumper (limited to 300 kits) and will probably will be available internationally, as far as I've read.
I'm probably not the best person to ask about how to order these into America or the UK. There's some fellas in the TFW2005 thread that seem to be able to get these kits through 'local dealers'.

HK-TF & TFClub no idea who's offering it elsewhere. As far as I know Magnus wont be a limited release and will be available readily. I don't know if a particular online store will pick it up though. Some posters on TFW2005 mentioned ordering their's through a 'local dealer'.

That's good news! I'd cough up £25 to complete Ultra Magnus.


I'm gonna trot over to TFW2005 and see if the Brits know who's bringing them to our shores...

hmm, well, for starters, TFClub isn't even remotely associated with Hasbro business-wise. they're a third-party customs business that provide otherwise unmaterialized accessories for TFs. the Classics Ultra Magnus was produced by Hasbro, so that is why there is no chance in heck UM woulda come with this armor.

I hope BBTS or one of the other on-line dealers offers this as a pre-order. I would gladly pay a little extra to let them do the leg-work. But I'm kind of lazy.

I just contacted these guys direct on the CliffJumper set and they set it up via PayPal for $60.

Leary as I am, I fear I may get beat, but I saved a copy of our emails and submitted them as part of the PayPay message.

Hence even if I am beat, I'll still get my money back as PayPal is secure, and I have everything documented.

Here's hoping!

Now all I gotta do is get a Classics CliffJumper :D

You contacted the manufacturer directly and ordered a CliffJumper upgrade, or preordered the UM upgrade?

Believe me I did!

They told me the Ultra Magnus armor is still in the design process and were kinda floored that I even knew about it as I could hardly navigate there site.

The Ultra Magnus set has no preorder, packaging, or even finalized form yet.

This is of course acording to emails and nothing I found on their site.

They did however promise me that they would keep me posted, if they do of course, that knowledge will be posted ASAP.

Still, it's cool that I beat the scalpers on the CliffJumper set :D . I wanna get a sealed CliffJumper and display them next to eachother, I'll post pics!
