And it comes with a frikkin' Minimus Ambus minifigure!!

I've been a bit 'meh' about combiner wars, but this is a-w-e-s-o-m-e:

I haven't bought TF figures since 2012, but nothing's gonna stand in my way of getting this. It will not escape my hunger. It looks like all of Magnus' instruments of destruction can combine into a hammer. And Minimum Ambus is the touch that seals the deal. Glad I didn't dare to be stupid and shell out the $150 for the MP version.

This will be my first Leader class figure - it's a done deal. At the mo I only really get the toys that are from MTMTE (so my last was Brainstorm).

Leader-class Megs sizes with MP-10, so Leader class figures are essentially cheaper Masterpieces anyway, it seems.

Is Minimus a Micromaster? And will he size up into another size of Minimus and then go inside Magnus? The matryoshka doll of the Lost Light!

Or have a glass full of spare change near their beds. That they don't have.

No idea if they have another Minimus figure planned. Probably not judging from this. The Minimus minifigure that comes with Magnus does indeed fit in his chest compartment though!

That's pretty darn gorgeous. Would love to have a similarly well designed Rodimus and Chromedome.

FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUDGE!!!!

I was too quick on the draw. Sigh. Life. I was torn between MP Mags and CITIZEN STAAAAAAAACKAAAAAACKAAAAACK (echo), only for this newcomber figure that kicks all ass to make the scene.

Guess I'll have two Mags
