    Im gunna shrink magnus down by 1 to 2 inches in height
    you can call me crazy and stupid
    pleads of dont ruin this toy will fall on deaf ears
    i basically dont like how tall he is (i know hes a leader)
    Does anyone have any good ideas as how to do this
    Also i wont be transforming him (he will stay in robot mode) so anything goes
    I am thinking that if i make the legs shorter then that might work but then his shoulder pads would need to be small otherwise he would look to stocky

    Man, I wish there was a shrink/enlarge machine. You know how many toys I would change size to be in-scale?

    Oh, right, the thread. Well, you could always remove hey section, like the back end, of the shoudler pads. They'd appear smaller.

    If you unscrew the front of his shoulder pads, they should look alot smaller.

    I dunno how you're gonna do his legs though, that will take extremely drastic modification

    There is a shrink enlarge machine...it called a pantograph. the factories i n china use them all the time for toys...when they're made as two-ups they need to be shrunk down. Enlargemants can be done in the same way.

    3d Laser scanners and 3d printers are starting to be used but they're still very pricey compared to the old hand pantograph machines

    Same thing happenned to me. I got Magnus off ebay, and now my local department store is selling him at half-price, packaged together with Leader Megatron.

    And yeah, I see no other way for the legs except for chopping.

    What exactly is your problem with tall figures?!

    First Blurr and now Magnus? Magnus is supposed to be big!

    Also longarm as well, i think i just need to have the figures either around the same height or as close to the show as possible, i am fussy but not to the point where im messuring everyones head,
    with magnus tho he just seems to tall compared to the others he doesnt blend in and because of this im aware of him sticking out, so every time i look at my display shelf all i see is magnus sticking out
    It might not make sense but it just bugs me, apart from longarm, blurr and magnus all the others are fine size wise
