    I like the idea of an armored-up bot. I was examining some of my other PX figures earlier and they are amazing. I have my nitpicks, but I don't see PX giving us something that isn't top notch, whether a re-mold of an existing figure or whatever.

    Completely new, accurate in both modes = a buy. This add-on = not getting my money. I like to play with my figs and I don't need another prime i clip shit onto. To those who like it, more power to you!

    What if the add-on pieces are integrated though? Imagine that.

    No way, all the addons seem to clip on the upper part of the vehicle in alt mode and yet in bot mode, you see attachments on the leg. No this is a partsformer through and through.

    And it's fine that you like that concept.

    But this is supposed to be FOC Ultra Magnus. You know, NOT an Armor-up bot. Magnus has his own design in FOC. This isn't top notch because it's NOT the Magnus this is supposed to represent.

    Unless it performs some miracle of origami there's no way it doesn't partsform. The chest piece in robot mode is fake and forms the trunk of the vehicle, where as the front of the vehicle folds up to be the heels in robot mode.

    Yeah, looking at bot mode and alt mode, it looks outright impossible for this not to have a parts-forming transformation. Add to that the fact that the alt mode barely resembles FoC Ultra Magnus (who looks nothing like Prime in the game) and I have serious doubts about getting this figure.

    Which really sucks, because just about everything PX has made has looked very accurate to the game (sans Paddles for obvious reasons). And the details still look great here, it's just, it looks more like Prime's going as Magnus for Halloween. Which would be fine for G1, but not FoC. This really should have been a new mold, or at least an extensive retool.

    Why do I like it? I usually have great taste. PX hasn't delivered a dud yet. First time for everything I suppose. Just wait and see before jumping to conclusions.

    I'm guessing you have never owned or handled Summanus.

    The problem with Summanus was the fans wanting clear plastic for the fins. They got what they wanted. I still enjoy mine.

    He certainly has his flaws, but I don't think I'd go so far as to call him a dud. He looks very accurate in both modes. It's just his super loose joints, and his feet that drive me nuts.

    Super... loose? My Summanus has a couple of joints that are so tight I can barely move them. The tail armatures are the only bits on mine that are on the loose side of things, and aside from that I've had no issues. In fact, my only real non-subjective issue among all the PX figures I own is a single missing paint application on Vulcan. So, yeah, I'd say PX is pretty dud-free, at least from what I've purchased.

    I just saw a movie recently about a CIA agent convincing someone to create a company called IAC. You see "dxp", and you know he is an automatic PX fanboy :)

    My Summanus doesn't have "loose" joints and his feet are fine. He's far from a dud because he's accurate in both modes and the plastic quality, on mine at least, doesn't show any signs of breaking.
