Ah, making fun of others. Got it
Considering how much adorable DX9 X34 Prime appeal to me, these pics from DaimChoc of Magnus/Ranton with his trademark red bumper just make my day! Both Apollo and now Ranton/Magnus need to be in my collection.
More teasing release one
It seems Magnus DX9 X34W Ranton is out for those that wanted. Apparently, another Magnus will be passed from me as they switched out the red bumper for silver bumper, lol.
I was a bit on the fence, but the silver bumper looks better!
For anyone else on the fence, I have to say that these DX9 Optimi (vanilla, black, white, or clear) actually look a lot better in-person than they do in these pictures. I was not a huge fan of the chest windows being kind of smallish, but when I saw the figures on display at TFCon Chicago (2018), I couldn't believe how good the figures look up close!
Did they fix the hip joints for this guy? That's a big part that holds me back on these. I have Dutch and the hips are awful; even the replacement hips.
I have Ranton and sadly nope, they did not fix the hips. He has the same breakaway hips as Dutch.
I like how him and don't mind owning him because I like albino inner-Magnuses, but it is impossible to recommend any version of this mold to anyone. It just has so many flaws, especially when you figure in the price.
