Thinking about buying this guy. Any opinions on him?
Long Legs but easily one of the best Magnus figures out there. The Vehicle mode rocks, which makes it worth the price of admission alone
BTW, how much are you paying for him?
He's amazing. Yeah, long legs are long but he's really damn cool.
He's a cool figure. But he's even better with a RiD Optimus prime or Car Robots Fire Convoy.
i say buy it if the price is right. i love mine. but i hold a soft spot for the r.i.d. line.
few places online have him for about 60 dollars shipped.
It's a very good toy. The long legs don't bother me, and if you have the car brothers it enhances play value.
who are the car brothers?
He's one of the nicest power mushrooms you're likely to find. He looks great on a shelf in either vehicle or robot mode, he comes with a big damn gun and he looks imposing as all get out.
Just don't expect to get too many great poses out of him, his legs are ridiculously long and his arms are basically giant rectangles.
The RiD Autobot cars: X-Brawn, Sideburn, and Prowl.
I prefer him in either vehicle mode or as armor for Optimus, but he's a damn fine figure in his own regard. Articulation below the waist could be better, but considering all he was designed to do he turned out fantastic. Like all of RiD's unique molds, he's definitely worth picking up.
Great toy. Buy. Be happy.
But watch the metallic paint on the front. The blue areas rub easily. Clear coat should help.
Also, be careful of tyres - splitting tyres (especially the cab's) have become common over time.
Ok thanks for the replies. Ill buy him.
Now that you've made your decision, I'm also gonna echo the tire remark: Be prepared if they crack. A few have on mine, although you can easily repair them with Krazy Glue. I hope you enjoy him. He and R.I.D. Prime were some of my first Transformers, and I plan to rebuy them soon, since their joints are loose and worn out, their tires are cracking left and right, their chrome is getting worn out, their paint is getting worn out, and I'm missing Magnus's huge gun. Then again, that was from back when I played with my Transformers, so that's to be expected. Do I regret having to buy them again, though? No sir-ee.
I just have my deluxe henkei sideswipe, Generations Drift and ANY third deluxe autobot car who varies on my preference at that time.
Don't need the RID car brothers.
i never cared for him...bought him...meh
stored in a storage bin in our storage locker with other stuff...never missed him.
There is no RID God Magnus. There is an RID Ultra Magnus, or a CR God Magnus.
He is win! His alt mode fits great with the universe figs.
