    From the pics posted you can notice UM has red eyes on the box, but blue eyes in reality.

    Also, the knee parts on the box are painted, but not so on the toy.

    The toy is also mistransformed when it comes to the kneecaps, I haven't openend my instruction booklet, so I don't know if they intentionnally did that to differenciate him from Prime.

    Okay where to start. Magnuses face is totally off, His Gun is Black not White and gray. his thighs are all whit not white blue and dark blue like on the box. Skywarp has some small Misses on his legs but nothing as major as Magnus.

    And he looks so kool on the box. I almost think I'll pass on this. The head on the box is soo much better.

    Thank the maker I bought that airbrush last summer. Now, for decent weather so I can run through my Classics paint-up list. This guy is going to be a doozy when I get him.

    Got mine today as well. I was surprised at the differences between the Magnus toy and box art. Ah well, I bought it mainly for Skywarp anyways.

    Ya for an otherwise great set the Magnus paint was a pretty big let down in my opinion. He's OooooK but no were near as good as the original test shots and box pic's made him out to be. I would have been happy if they just put the blue face plate on him, that alone would have made a huge difference. Its just very blah and bland.

    Skywarp on the other hand is leaps and bounds an improvement over Starscream and is indeed a very killer paint.

    The head is the worst part of the figure as far as differing from the box. I like the eyes being blue but the rest would be better like the box has it. The body is not that bad to me but there are some paint applications I miss and a few I'm glad they changed. I think the smoke stacks/gun look better white like on the box and would have been a great homage to the original Magnus' gun but I think we saw it from the start in the black color, this is the first time I recall seeing it white. I still want this set and as soon as it is sighted I will call the Target in Savannah so I don't drive 240 miles both ways to look for one.
