    It’s not that noticeable. Yeah it’s there but eh I’m not bothered by it

    The different colored reds on the legs are more noticeable than the blues in the chest

    I'm wondering even more if a silver bumper would help with a slimmer appearance. Will post pics when I give it a shot.

    I dont think it would have. The red bumper matches the rush red on the chest and makes it look like one piece.

    Ya know we’ve certainly come full circle. 10 years ago we get a white Prime with no armor and a third party making armor to getting armor only for a 3rd party to make a white Prime.

    Just took some quick pics in my lightbox
    Minimus Ambus can fit snugly inside the cab in vehicle mode when Magnus is in combined robot mode for storage(see 5th pic).

    Might just be my camera. The reds came out like shit too. Quick pics, I didn't have time to tweak it.

    No disrespect to your photos, I just think they should have done a Hasbro version and a Takara Version on the chest. Doing something halfway for each doesn't seem like the best choice.

    The whites on Takara and Platinum are whiter than CW.

    I'm totally fine with the colors, really not a big deal to me.

    And in the 1980s we got a white Prime with a trailer that wrapped around it to make a "new" bot, and people wanted something like the cartoon instead. Now we have an MP like the cartoon and people want a white Prime with trailer armour.

    All of this has happened before, and it will all happen again...

    I really don't remember anyone wanting a toy like the cartoon, most people I knew wanted the show to show Magnus' inner prime. I guess different areas wanted different things.

    They match the Takara and the Platinum Heroes figures; they're actually white.

    Does this Magnus work with the original chest?

    No. It's like trying to cram 42 DD breasts into a 36 B bra.

    I imagine someone will eventually make some adapters to allow the stock chest to work with PC-17. It'd most likely be through shapeways though.

    Best mental imagery invoked on the site all day.

    That is literally impossible, it would have to be a 3rd new chest to work.

    While not preferable or even remotely the best option, it is entirely possible. It'd take just three new parts. An extra connection joint for the crotch like the PC-17 chest has and extender pieces to connect and fill in the gaps at the top and sides of the chest.
