    To me personaly I like Magnus as a repaint he looks awesome in the classics line and being a repaint makes him and Optimus seem more like brothers.

    not at all. After taking a little paint to his face to make him have the same colors as the Revoltech, I love mine! I think I like him more WITHOUT the armor than with. He's a beautiful figure.

    Still, I preordered the armor. :)

    I seriously doubt that dude. Magnus is one of the most popular characters on this board and the Classics line is one of the most popular toy lines. Do the math and you will find your answer. :D .

    I got ultra magnus instead of prime because I thought he just looked better, IMO.

    Classics rock and fill the much needed desire for articulate toys, in their updated likeness, from lines when articulation wasn't possible.

    I wanted Skywarp more than Magnus, but still I wasn't like complaining about the 2 pack. Didn't get the set after all, though :( 

    I'm not a big Prime fan, so I generally prefer Magnus/Nemesis repaints. They look cooler as toys IMO :)

    Kicks arse. I never thought of Prime and Magnus as brothers, any more than I did the Seekers, or Ratchet and Ironhide. But I always thought of him in the sense of white Prime with power-up armour, because that's what the toy was. I'm doing a bit of repainting on him to make him a bit more G1 (mostly-white truck mode, chromed-up bumper and thighs etc), and I'm currently designing a set of armour for him. The Fansprojest stuff is nice and all, but it still doesn't look right to me. Meantime, I'm perfectly happy with him as is.

    Nah, good repaint of the Prime. Just wish he was closer to the box image though.

    You're not the only one. I love Classics Magnus, and White-Prime Magnuses in general. In fact, I sorta specifically collect them (though I'm still missing Magnus Jr. and that damn Nike Marine Convoy). It always fascinated me as a kid that Magnus had an albino Prime as his core, and I enjoy toys that hearken back to that.

    Though I agree with earlier posters that Classics Magnus needed a couple paint touch ups. I left his faceplate and eyes alone, but I did paint his forehead vent metallic blue and his forearm cylinders silver.

    Your not the only one, dude. After all the pics I've seen, I think he looks rawkin'. I ordered the Magnus vs. Prime off BBTS, and he should come today, along with Henkei Grimlock.

    I've got both Classics Prime and Magnus, though I like Magnus' color scheme better. He awesome on his own, the armor just makes him awesomer(can't wait for mine)

    I hate his guts and I never took off his twist ties when I opened Skywarp. That's all going to change once I get the upgrade armor though. :)

    Magnus has grown on me. I'm not a fan of Prime being painted white with the name Ultra Magnus slapped on the box, but I gotta say this is the best one of that group. I also wish it was closer to the box art but I won't complain.
