When SS86 Perceptor was revealed I think it was a foregone conclusion that Magnificus would come sooner or later. The man in black features a head that is based on Perceptors original toy head, which was also used on the Diaclone release back in the day. The biggest part of this release was being able to experience Hasbro's new insert tray that's supposed to be eco-friendly. For fans of the Japanese exclusive, this is a must-have release.
Along with Minerva's light bar and guns.
It's some sort of real figure going by the color of the translucent plastics. With the way Hasbro has been making people's wish lists lately, I don't doubt that this is a real figure. I made that mistake in doubting them when reading the leaks before but not anymore. Bring it on Hasbro. I just want cool toys regardless of my connection to the fiction or if I have the mold several times over.
The only thing I don't look forward to is buying yet another filler kit. I very rarely pick them up but this is one mold where I did for all versions so far. So this is yet another one to get. Then there's Crosscut as well. Not to mention Reboost if they get around to that one. I'd also want the other red Skids as Reboost is red Crosscut or vice versa. And I'd want AoE Rollbar too lol but I wouldn't mind if they didn't do this one so I have a reason to keep the T30 Skids mold around.
Sonic Bomber-Core drops some more possible leaked figure images with the look at the so-called Leaked Transformers Legacy Medix Deluxe Holiday Exclusive. The remake of the Skids / Crancakse mold with Burnout's head is a supposed Combiner Wars homage. Read the notes followed by the images.Transformers Deluxe Holiday Exclusive (Medix?)This appears to be a holiday exclusive repaint of Crankcase with Burnout's head, and bears striking resemblance to the Rescue Bots character Medix, but with a head homaging the Combiner Wars Medix. - Read the Full News Story
