    Well, I guess I'll be the first in this thread to say... I totally enjoy my City Commander as my Classics Ultra Magnus. I feel like the face/head/neck is a little off for the Classics styling, but otherwise, I think FP did a pretty good job.

    Still, everyone's entitled to their opinion, and I hope you guys who want a better G1 Magnus do end up getting one you like. :)

    I hope we get some form of Magnus in a Masterpiece form soon, official or not.

    There you go. Let us not forget MP-02.

    Still, the recent news of a 3rd Party Powermaster Prime gives me hope that someone will make a better Armor for Magnus to make him a proper Ultra Magnus.

    Seriously, you guys are doing a great job making PM Prime for the Classics Line. How about some power armor for MP-02, Xovergen?

    I wish i could get my hands on one of these Ultra Magnus 3d digital models. I would love to try to make it work as close to G1 as possible. I just dont have the time to model one from scratch.

    The Titanium Ultra Magnus had funky, hunchback shoulders.

    I swear it's the same one, I bet it's just buried in the thread. I very specifically remember watching that video as I took a shit in the Denver airport.

    Edit: actually I think it was this one, still don't see the video.

    Blocky and kinda generic and simple IMO. Never saw the appeal of that add on but to each their own.

    I'd rather have the classic car loader trailer.

    I was going to suggest RID Magnus but I just googled him and yeah, the robot mode leaves a lot to be desired.

    For all those yelling and complaining that city commander is not G1 enough you have to remember that he wasn't meant to be G1. He was meant for the Generations line of TFs.

    No one's yelling and we're just giving our opinions..kinda like you with defensive mode there. If a toy needs excuses to determine it's validity then it failed somewhere. Let it stand on it's own. Not everyone is going to conform to a single persons idea.

    As far as that goes the classics still try to remain relatively familiar to the originals in alt and bot modes.

    I dont think anyone is complaining about that? I think we are just wanting a G1 accurate UM.
