Spelt apocalypse wrong...but don't worry, it's not the end of the world.

Sorry, terrible joke, but I couldn't resist!

Aaanywho, Magnus. He still looks pretty solid, but the lukewarm reactions people have had when getting it in-hand, has just dropped my interest in him a little bit.

Still an eventual buy, but I won't be dropping the cash on him this week now, as I was originally planning to.

For a non show bot (that we know of) it seems weird that they went with a design that cheats all over the place. I didn't even know that the chest was made up of faux windows because there is no paint detailing there...meanwhile the cap just sits there on his back.

At least he has the best powerizer weapon. I seriously don't understand why they didn't design any sort of lock for the others...as I kid I would hate not being able to switch the things unless I held it. Still I think its just Thundertron and Skyquake for me. Lots of blue lately with the voyagers between these 3.

This fake chest door is kind of hard to make out from the pics since I don't have the figure yet. Is this some sort door like Prime chest door where it houses the Matrix or is it something else? Seeing how they cheated so many stuffs, this doesn't give me any hope he'll be in the show. His robot mode and weapon are really interesting.

Its the choice of blue and the overall lack of paint. Vehicle mode just looks like a big blue block on wheels; the weird proportions on robot mode don't help out much, either. There's not enough going on to break up all that blue, in either mode.

Voyager Magnus just doesn't appear to be enough of a step-up from the Cyberverse version and to me, for the increased cost, it should. I'm not sure where the disconnect lies, if the Cyberverse figures are getting better designed, or of the traditional sized figures are getting worse. There's a meeting in the middle going on that I'm not a fan of when there's a $15 price difference between the two.

Where's that extra money going? The Mechtech weapon, seemingly.

he looks decent. but I like the Cyberverse toy's vehicle mode (visible legs aside), and it's robot mode (much better color breakup) much more.
