E-Hobby Classics Magnificus / Mebion Revealed

6721_326808630755076_150149913_n

Some sleuthing from Snakas has uncovered a fresh image of the E-Hobby Mebion / Magnificus that was teased yesterday. As speculated, the image confirms that what was being teased was a black, Decepticon version of Reveal the Shield Perceptor (complete with alternate, toy accurate head sculpt). According to Snakas, E-Hobby is due to start preorders on this item on March 26, with the preorder period closing at 12:00PM, May 8th. The release is priced at 5,500 yen.

Snakas urges just a little caution in his report though – the image of Mebion shown here was uncovered through manipulating the URL of yesterday’s teaser image – so much like the Botcon 2010 Clench as Octane redeco, it could be a red herring. However we feel that the overwhelming balance of the evidence so far points to this being the genuine article.

    Gotta be RtS Perceptor as Magnificus based on this image. The 3 lights are Perceptor's in vehicle mode, and the coloration and previously link to eHOBBY makes me think Magnificus.

    My first Perceptor was the Microchange black version. Pretty cool. I'd be down for it.

    Magnificus sounds cool enough. Not cool enough to for me to buy though, I don't really like either the G1 or RtS figure. I'd be far more interested in us finally getting the Reflector from that mold.

    I think that's a pretty good guess there.
