I consider Thew to basically be the model toy collector. We should all aim to be so amped about the thing we collect.

@  Pennpenn : (21 July 2017 - 07:21 AM)

And some people are just whiny jerks who like to complain about stuff and don't realise that, so will invent irrational grievances to fuel that need.

@  Rycochet : (21 July 2017 - 06:13 AM)

A lot of toy collectors don't seem to get that the things the collect are toys.and have unrealistic expectations of what's doable in a modern retail environment. You're not going to get a $100 figure's worth of parts and paint for $20 or less and gimmicks are needed tomake the toys actually, you know, fun.

@  Foffy : (20 July 2017 - 09:40 PM)

Not necessarily. With the right condiments, they can taste surprisingly nice.

@  Evac : (20 July 2017 - 09:37 PM)

I think most toy collectors are bitter in some form.

@  Diecast : (20 July 2017 - 09:37 PM)

...or maybe I'm the bitter one?!  Oh no.

@  Diecast : (20 July 2017 - 09:32 PM)

And I don't even mean that everyone should love it all. But it does seem to bring the angrier ones in from the lurking.

@  Diecast : (20 July 2017 - 09:29 PM)

It's these reveals that always remind me how exceptionally bitter a large portion of toy collectors are on other forums.

@  Sean Whitmore : (20 July 2017 - 07:06 PM)

SDCC toy reveals make adults happy by telling them what they can get eventually. Kids don't care what they can get eventually, you make them happy by getting them whatever's available now.

@  Jalaguy : (20 July 2017 - 06:10 PM)

They exist, they just don't show them at SDCC because they assume that the adult fanbase doesn't care about them.

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 July 2017 - 06:03 PM)

On SDCC stuff...I'm disappointed, but not surprised, at the lack of the actual KIDS toys among all the toys for us old men

Made by the same guys who made the WST G2 Optimus Prime, and the WST Music Label trailer, we are going to be getting a WST Ultra Magnus trailer.These guys also make a bootleg Magnus cab, so don't worry if you don't have a real one. From the size of the cab, I'd guess it to stand about 4 inches tall, about the size of a Legends toy. Here are pictures of the prototype:

I picked up the G2 Optimus with trailer, roller, extending arm and stickers from this guy last month for under $7!



I still need the WST Music Label one:

It would be neat if they can just take that mold and multiply the size by about 5 or 6 for Masterpiece. Still, this will make an excellent Legends G1 Ultra Magnus.

For that price, I guess Ultra Magnus will be affordable. (that G2 trailer is sweet.) how much was shipping?
It's good that we'll finally have a WSTF Ultra Magnus that's actually obtainable unlike the previously existing one.

Uhm... Even if they could make this mold to hold Masterpiece UM, it really wouldn't be all that great. First, Masterpiece UM's bulk wouldn't likely be supported a super sized version of the original mold. Plus, it really wouldn't be a Masterpiece level product anymore.

Now if this (or something like it) would be much better in my book.

I paid $19 for 3 different KO WST products together (G2 Starscream, G2 Ramjet and G2 Optimus), shipping incluced. So I did the math and figured Optimus to be under $7.

When he makes a new mold, it usually costs more, then as they sell, he lowers to cost to what the market bares, and then makes a redeco and sells it for more, again slowly dropping over the months. I hope we get a shining Magnus and a Diaclone Magnus from this.

So far this guy has sold 4 or 5 unpainted prototypes from his ebay stores. So I guess it's coming along. I might have to pick up the ipod one before this comes out though so I have one of each trailer.

He does have a Pepsi Prime one, but it's just the G1 trailer with a Pepsi sticker, not the different Pepsi bottle holding trailer.

Its annoying that this the first color choice, but...I'm just glad that we're getting a proper WST Ultra Magnus. I don't know if any of the rest have you done this just for kicks but try setting up your WST with your normal City Bots. The scale is so cool.
