    The coloring looks kinda weird for my taste. But that robot mode is awesome!

    Me, like it. Now show the bot mode :drool: 
    The only strange part is that darker blue diagonal line looks like the elephant has zipper for a pocket.

    I dig the gradient effect, but the blue makes him look like he has a vascular/circulation problem.

    Like Pete said at BotCon, I think this was such an obvious and brilliant repaint I wonder why it hadn't been done sooner. This looks solid!

    it really does. but every now and then obvious repaints pass us by, and we were onto Armada by the time Magnus got popular again after "War & Peace"

    Think of it as a scar. They often heal up to be much darker-colored than the rest of the skin.

    It had kind of, by fans. I remember seeing a Magnus Mammoth years ago around the same time people started painting B'boom as Rodimus.

    Yeah, white Magnus didn't become famous until DW War & Peace. Otherwise, we may have it sooner. For me, thanks to DW, now I have more Magnus than ever. That's the beauty of being a Prime repaint because Optimus usually has the best mold. If Ultra Mammoth is a successful and even though I'm not a beast war fan, but I hope TFCC/Ehobby/Hasbro/TTomy would repaint that 4 modes Transmetal Optimus Primal to Magnus.
    Yeah, I guess, I can look it as a scar. Is that line just a design or part of the transformation. Hm, looks like I gotta search YouTube for that mold.

    Nice, but not a Beast Wars fan/collector, so that'll be one more available from my sub for someone else.

    I want to see Ultra Mammoth, Optimus Primal and a Leo Convoy. No not a Leo Prime, but the Beast Wars II figure. Thanks.

    I'll save you the trouble, it's the trigger mechanism for his missile launching feature in robot mode. He has one on both sides.

    And I have to agree with the assessment that the mammoth would've looked better in white. It would've made more sense anyway, as an albino mammoth is not too far fetched of an idea. A blue mammoth is just really silly looking.

    It's the trigger for one of the hip missile launchers.
