    Ah now to start waiting for tfsource to get this in stock.

    I wonder when we will start seeing adapters for the titanmaster UM to make him work with this.

    I've already added the back part to my TT UM, but obviously, line you said, it won't work on it with this set. However, I didn't, and won't, use the extra feet, as they hang out of the back of the trailer, which isn't very G1.

    Nothing some paint won't fix. I might even add metallic red to the Takara version...

    I don't use those feet either but they can be folded at the shins to store inside the trailer. Not that they really look any better that way though. Plus it kills some of the ability for the car carrier to carry cars.

    I got mine and...it’s fine. That’s about it. The chest piece is just kinda stupid. I popped off my original Magnus chest piece and put PC-16 in to see if I could use the original over the weekend before he arrived back but ya can’t. If they’d said “for $10 more it will come to other with two chest pieces for your preference I wouldn’t have complained.

    Also I don’t care about grey hands and knees. It makes no difference to me

    I finally got home from work got to mess with it. It’s takes getting used to. While the mold was made for LG Ginrai and this is the result of people wanting a Magnus redeco, in my opinion its a mold only for for Ginrai or Power Master Prime. Because the CW/Legends Magnus is straight up MTMTE Ultra Magnus it just doesn’t look right.

    PC-16 completes the powermaster look of Ginra/PM Prime. PC-17 is trying to make something look like something else and to me it doesn’t look proper. Maybe it’s becuase the Magnus figure is 2 years old and I’ve grown used to it but having a futuristic cab on this fusuristic trailer and then giving it a 80s looking cab on a futuristic trailer is just off putting.

    The chest colors are okay, they stop bothering you after a while.

    The real complaint I have is the head sticks out really high. The top of the original cab was curved and the head rested kind of snug. Now it sticks up really high up and the top of the cab is flat. Just looks weird.

    I think you may have just described the majority of my issues with this set, that and the chest shape looks weird, looks too boxy compared to the stock chest plate

    I collect Ultra Magnuses.. I have over 40 by now. I've had this in my TFSource stack forever because it's another UM to get. Even against the dings piling up against it... grey hands/knees, lazy chest plate coloring... but I've held on to it... until now.

    Your 'this mold is Ginrai not Magnus' argument finally helped me to let go. I'll pick one up on sale or used some day... but I'm not gonna spend $60 for an afterthought of a figure.

    It’s way too boxy for who the intended character is. While the width of both cabs are almost the same, the futuristic cab and chest of the stock figure made him look buff and somewhat slim. The PC-17 set makes his look chubby as if it doesn’t fit and was never intended for the figure which well...it wasn’t.

    Exactly, the stock chest piece gives him very heroic proportions whereas the New chest piece looks like he just finished eating thanksgiving dinner. I think it’s in part due to the shape of the red being more angled on the stock chest piece

    Here’s a side by side with my combiner war magnus(my Legends one also has X2 toys upgrade).

    I this helps with what I’m saying about the chests and the cabs. The CW one just looks more angular and proper where as the PC-17 set looks like just an after thought. The chest piece doesn’t blend with the cab at all like the CW one does or even the PC-16 Jinrai set does.

    You know what would be great? This would be fucking epic.

    Someone needs to make a NEW chestplate... I don't care if it's compatible with PC-17 or just the stock cab... but it needs to be a chestplate that you can remove and slightly transform into a little blue fighter jet, with a seat for Titan Master Ultra Magnus.

    An homage to how you could combine the G1 helmet and chest piece together into a a little jet.

    Seeing that hideous CW blue on my Legends Magnus bothers me more than that chestplate :lol 

    Mine just barely shipped today so the wait continues.
