I ordered a G1 Megatron this morning (Armada was strangely unavailable) and there was a thing in the breakdown saying QUEBEC TAXES. So I'm pretty sure they'll ship to you.

I've been watching TRU.ca for a while now and the Wave 1 CW figures go in and out of stock all the time. So take a deep breath, be patient, and keep an eye on the site. They even have an option to email you once they're available.

Incidentally, they also take Paypal now too! That's news to me anyways.

Don't think that's Amazon.com jacking that price up. Think it's the resellers jacking up that price on Amazon.

Yeah, a couple of hours after that Amazon had him for 45 bucks and free prime shipping. Mine arrives on Monday.

There is a core robot, his name is Minimus Ambus.

If you want a white Prime, get Classics Magnus. If you want a white Prime with armor, get City Commander. If you want a truck and trailer that transforms into a giant red, white, and blue robot, get this thing or the Masterpiece.


Core robot G1 style 1985 release of the Diaclone Powered Convoy that eventually became the G1 UM we all come to love.

chuck must be waxing nostalgic for an updated power armor type UM.

I Would of liked the truck cab to be more boxy like the 1986 toy.


Maybe in a couple of years once the MP hype has died down we could get a G1 style Leader Magnus

How is this not G1 ? It transforms just like the G1 cartoon ? The only thing about it thats not G1 is the design of the shoulder missiles which appear to be ripped off from city commander.


As in G1 with a core robot.

:BANG_HEAD:

In other words he means "vintage toy accurate". People need to stop using the term "G1" so loosely. By American standards, G1 simply means anything transformers related between 1984-1988. There are even G1 pajamas.

#JustBeingOutspoken #KeepingItReal


Just to add some stuff that doesn't fit your definition of G1, the Japan version of G1 extended all the way to 1992 via Operation Combination. Even by "American standards", the Micromasters like Countdown was released around 1991. Does that not fit into your own definition of G1? Some people TOO should stop shooting from the hip in declaring when and how G1 began and ended. Maybe for those living in their own microcosm that is...........

And Burn, nice meme image. Most appropriate indeed.

How many times has White Optimus Prime with Armor as Magnus appeared in any G1 fiction? The only instance I know of is briefly in Dreamwave. Apparently in the Classics comics he's a white Prime with no armor, but that's a different issue altogether.

Somewhere in a animated G1 episode, the withe bot came out on it's own to do something. I cant remember what episode though.

Optimus Prime painted white to immunize himself from the hate plague perhaps?

But still, he did exist in toyform. Not no hung up over it btw. Just an inference on why chuck waxed nostalgic. Me? Already have the MP version. Btw, also planning to get this sucker........only the Tomy version that is. :grin:

While we have seen plenty of in-hand images for the upcoming Leader class Generations Combiner Wars Thundercracker - retool and redeco of Generations Jetfire - but this next batch, via 淡定玩耍 of ACToys, shows the toy next to the Masterpiece line! Size comparisons aplenty, check them out below.

What a downgrade from MP Thundercracker which already exists.

Odd choice of comparison figures...it's like photographing a Chevy Malibu with luxury European sports cars. The one is just out of place with the others...

Also I have to add that looking at these particular pics makes me believe the MP line did nothing to improve the scale debates argued about the classics line. Its just another mismatched hybrid between cartoon and vintage toy scale combined with real world alt mode scale that doesnt look so good side by side. The only difference is now the mismatched scales take up more space on your shelf.

Transformers will always be out of scale g1 ultra Magnus side by side comaprison next to metroplex and bruticus, my Theroy on mp figures there not made to be in scale with transformers series maybe in scale with other mp figures but mp figures are more to adult oriented with higher price rage higher complex transformation more detail, while everything leader class and below is aimed at kids oriented which scale does not matter to kids transformers will never be in scale if that where true they cost more to make buy for fans Tamara gave fans mp series high in detail, price, transformation, but for average collector who plays don't care about scale that is what non mp series is for kids

I'm excited for Thundercracker. The coneheads could definitely use some more love, though.

Right. Because MP Starscream being a few heads taller than MP Prowl or MP Sideswipe is totally not an improvement over Classics Starscream being a couple heads shorter than Universe Prowl or Universe Sideswipe. =;

I understand wanting to emulate what the old toy did, and I think it would have been cool if the Masterpiece did this, but at the same time, they're going mostly off the cartoon, where Magnus transformed directly from truck to patriotic robot and there was never any indication of a smaller robot in armor. Most fiction has adopted this view, including the IDW comics which Leader Magnus is most heavily based on. Also, I think from an engineering standpoint, it's easier to design something that transforms fluidly from one mode to another without having to worry about separating and combining into armor and stuff, which is important for selling to kids.

This Thundercracker looks amazing.






On a different note, isn't the Leader class Megatron supposed to come with a sticker sheet? Mine came with a painted Decepticon symbol.
