    ...as if you couldn't already guess what he was going to look like.
    SPX_Toys has an auction up for a test shot of WW Magnus on eBay:

    Perhaps i've had one of my brainfarts, but i don't remember WW Magnus looking anything like WW Prime.



    IIRC, it's shipping with Sunstorm.

    Ahhh. A nonsensical repaint into a character that looked nothing like that. not to mention yet another Prime=Magnus repaint at that. Total crap. Pass with extreme prejudice; I'll hold out for the G1 Titanium version.

    Will get it if the joints are improved like the Hasbro guys mentioned last Botcon. If it's still flop city, I'm likely gonna skip.

    The lack of blue faceplate isn't helping. :(

    You know... instead of making it so we'd never get an accurate WW Magnus in this line -sorry, he wasn't a white Prime even though they did have similar "cabs"- if they were so hard up for a repaint of WW Prime they could have at least BSed a WW Nemesis Prime. Oh well... they are doing Nemmy in the 3" line so... maybe at some point...

    Sorry, I dig black Prime repaints more than white Prime repaints. I guess I'm just more excepting of the "Prime's Evil Clone" thing more than "Magnus is white Prime" thing. Probably because I've never ever ever looked at Magnus as a white Prime wearing body armor...

    Yeah, as much as we all know that I think the War Within designs are the holy grail of TF's, I'm even skipping this one. I think the idea of repainting Prime white and calling it Ultra Magnus is BEYOND ridiculous enough as it is, and this latest one just proves that they're going to milk that retarded idea for as long as possible *because* fans keep buying it without objection. They finally got things right with the G1 Titanium UM figure... for the first time ever, actually... but of course it has to be only 6" tall limited to a line (diecast) that more people seem to hate than love. Talk about frustrating.

    I'm still wondering why they gave Sunstorm a WW design since he had nothing to do with that series at all, but even that makes a little more sense than this supposed WW rendition of Magnus.

    It comes from years of having to use Prime's leftover bodies.

    Well don't forget. In the original cartoon series. their was a Decepticon Seeker who had SunStorms colors. He was in only one episode, and had no lines, but that's pretty much who he's based on, so it makes some sence to me.

    Hell yes. They've beaten that dead horse soooo many times.

    I blame it all on Pat Lee.

    I guess I'm totally in the minority here, but I really like it. But then, I dig white Prime repaints. I don't know if I really think of them as Ultra Magnus.... just white Prime. I just tend to really like how the Prime molds look in white. I'll be buying this, no question... especially if they've rejiggered it to hold together better.
