I received my Titanium, G1, Ultra Magnus, a few days ago. I was aware of the shoulder setback before I purchased it but thought I wanted it to go along with my collection. I have determined that "as a toy for my collection" it is crap, BUT, that toy is loaded with some really good joints that would be great for any combiner kitbashes or even for bashing any robot. The elbows each have a pop off socket that also has clickable rotation. (good for a shoulder connector of a combiner) Also just below the hips is another set. You could use the hip connector alone or with the hip joint. The waist also pops off and has clickability. The ankles could be used for a set of legs that needed to retract inside for alt mode or maybe to repair any of the legs that don't stay in position. The shoulders have ball sockets and the carrier beams have mutiple points for adjusting the length. While disassembling UM, I found out that the cab can also pop off and drive around without the carrier. I don't know how many of these toys are going to make it out on to the shelves. Some have said that they are having a hard time finding them. I suggest purchasing one as soon as you see it, instead of waiting for them to go on sale, in case you don't find very many. This might also signal Hasbro to make more Titaniums that hopefully are a better design that this one. At least the Fallen, Jet Fire, WWI Optimus and the Seekers have been good designs. Megatron seems destined to s**k (twice now). Just thought I would mention this.
