Wait, so this will be an armour set for their Optimus? That's so cool!
Hm. Would have liked beefier wheels section. Looks a bit unbalanced now.
Looking at it more, yeah I definitely would have preferred a retool over an upgrade kit. The games truck mode is pretty rocking, but aside from the front, this doesn't really capture that. Hope the robot mode fairs better.
I hope they release a powered convoy colored one to upgrade jupiter, I'd buy it for sure.
I doubt PX is doing an addon set. If this is gonna be UM, can't we assume that the parts in colour are the parts that would be the same as Jupiter and the new grey pieces be new tooling?
I agree. The side of the trailer barely resemble the game or the artwork. I'm also not fond of the proportion, looks so unbalance in some area. I'm usually a sucker to a white Magnus wearing armor. But in FOC UMagnus case, I think his design works best as a non-armor/ non-upgrade kit type.
I'm looking at that prototype pic and compare to the game and art pics below, the robot mode is the deal breaker now for me as the alt.mode is a meh at most.
WHY IS IT A ARMOR KIT!!
Hey guys, let's just remember that this is obviously in an early stage and anything could happen. Planet X has been reliable in the past, so why not have a little faith and wait for more news in the future?
Pitchforks and torches ready to go.
Here's hoping. As-is, this looks kinda terrible and looks almost nothing like the in-game design. I was never a fan of the White Prime Magnus, especially in cases like these (most cases) where Magnus is clearly an entirely different body-type than Prime.
Turd on wheels?
Jeez, every time Planet X show something new (and that something will be WFC / FOC flavoured), a bunch of people pile on and tell us how much they don't like the WFC / FOC aesthetic. Pfffft.
I myself, am looking forward to this one
...did you even read this thread?
They must be doing some kind of regular Magnus/Prime repaint
Uhh, no one has done that in this thread.
My hype train will pick up more steam once I see this assembled onto the bot mode. I wonder if it parts-forms or if it can convert into place while attached?
I have a feeling this guy might be refined down the road, especially if there's strong enough feedback from fans. Planet X is one of those that's usually pretty good about listening to feedback. Not to mention the fact that this prototype is very crude right now.
Yea the hate for this fig went straight to the tf-con toronto thread
