I got my 2 reserved. Still I wonder if any of the other sites will try and undersell them?

Magnus is a big bot... What did you expect something like this to look like considering it's an add-on kit????

I ordered one as well. I wasn't a big fan of the Cliffjumper upgrade set but this one looks excellent. The price is about what I was expecting and if Prime's trailer comes in at the same sort of price I'll be happy enough. Roll on September!!!

Oh how I would love to preorder this but I don't know if I'll have that amount of money by then

I think gas prices by then might be well over $4 a gallon

I preordered mine right away. Even if BBTS gets undercut (which is likely they do tend to be higher priced) I knew I didn't want to miss out on the chance to own this armor considering how nice the Cliffjumper set turned out. Sadly I passed on that one and the price is way too high to get it.

This is going to be a great fall for my Classics collection.

Nah, too rich for my blood :-( looks good though but that's just too much money for what it is.

Well, if it was closer to 50$ I'd be ordering one, but until I get a job I can't plop down more money than I'm already doing on stuff.
I need to stop spending cash I don't have.

Placed my preorder, might go back and preorder another. This about what I figured it would cost, really I figured it might be a bit higher. What I'm curious about now is how it looks in trailer mode.

Wasn't this soposed to be like $50?

Well I can't afford it at that price plus shipping.

You know, I'm torn. By the time this probably comes out, we'll be knee deep in Animated Figures and Universe 2.0 as well. That 85 bucks could go a long way. I'm on the fence...

look at it this way if you really like the look and want a complete Ultra Magnus you can pay that price, or once it's sold out you'll see it for $200+ on ebay like the Cliffjumper set.

There were some pictures floating around of the mockups of the trailer and it looked really good. Only thing we haven't seen is the coloring.

Personally I thought the Cliffjumper set was over priced and overrated. I bought a Valkfan head and was completely happy.

THIS on the other hand is SWEET! Pricey, yes, I would have preferred a higher production run, and lower price, but this, i feel, is worth it.

I pre-ordered... first I've ever done that for some custom kit... but it doesn't come out until September, so I have all the money for it by then..

How do you contact this Valkfan guy and how much did he charge? I just want a proper Cliffjumper head I could care less about the guns.
