    I have the three Magnus.

    MFT is great all in one. Perfect scale with MST in bot form, but the vehicle form is ridiculous small. Can't carry other vehicles.

    MST v2.0. White Prime and Armor Set. It's a completely mess. White Prime chipped arms after putting the armor plates. Lots of falling pieces over and over. Lots of leftover pieces in a drawer. Very good bot form, but short arms and small elbows that can't hold the HUGE absurd gun. Vehicle form can barely carry some little vehicles like MST Bee / Cliff but not bigger ones like Trailblazer, Hoist, Silverstreak... Etc... The inner surface isn't flat, neither the top surface of the trailer. Vehicle form scales perfect with MST vehicles but the bumper is silver instead of red.

    NA Magnus... Ok, being honest is in delivery process, I'll give you my thoughts very soon. :lol

    I am still pretty content with the MFT one.

    Despite not liking the NA version when we first saw it (hello shoulder arms and double chest), it has grown on me since - that insufferable New Age charm always gets me in the end! At least the double chest problem is a nonissue because I'd likely keep him in full armor mode anyway; and there seem to be some aftermarket solutions for the shoulder arms (although so far, none look "great" and I still hate that it's necessary).

    I look forward to your thoughts Manel, maybe you will tip me into picking this up after all.

    I've never been all that interested in legends scale figures but since I'm possibly returning to the office on occasion next year I want some desk bots that won't take up too much space but I'm not familiar with which brands/figures have a good reputation. Can anyone recommend any legends scale versions of Galvatron, Sixshot, Thrust, Thundercracker, Wheeljack, Perceptor, Blurr, and/or Springer?

    Well, there's only one of some of those anyway:

    New Age Galvatron
    Toyworld Wheeljack
    Magic Square Perceptor (being OSKOd by MFT right now)
    DX9 Blurr
    IF Sixshot (plus MFT OSKO)

    There are two Springers from MFT (an old one and a new one that was released in the past month or so).

    There are now three Thrusts and three Thundercrackers - DX9 (KOd by Pocket Toys, plus MFT OSKO), New Age, and Magic Square. You most likely won't be able to buy any of them as individuals, but rather sets of three Seekers.

    Some of these (anything by DX9 and IF) will be very hard to come by.

    I highly recommend the Magic Square Perceptor (Deadly). They nailed the sculpt IMO, and the figure just feels overall solidly built.

    IF Wheeljack is my favorite legends Wheeljack. NewAge and Magic Square might be releasing one next year; a lot of next year's lineup should be revealed at the Shanghai convention in December.

    NewAge and Iron Factory for Galvatron (both great, depending on what you’re looking for).
    IF and (OS KO) MFT for Sixshot.
    Magic Square/NA/IF each have all seekers and are good quality.
    IF and Toyworld for Wheeljack.
    MS for Perceptor, though there is an undersized and impossible to find IF version.
    MFT for 2 different versions of Springer. They’ve got Blurr in the pipeline and no one else does.

    I don’t own any NA figures, but they have a good reputation. I have both IF and MS and the quality of both is very good, especially (in my opinion) for IF.

    Thanks for the suggestions y'all!

    I'm curious, how big is the OSKO MFT Sixshot? Is he still reasonably sized for Legends scale?

    he is a great size for a legend collection. the original was a little on the small side and from a time when IF hadn't credit a real scale yet.

    the MFT bots are great with the rest of the decepticon heavy hitters.

    Wow, those DJD cons look great! Wish they weren't so pricey for being so small.

    About 138mm to the top of the head. Add another 30 or 40 mm for the shoulders and wings. He towers over stuff from MST and NA, which is why I chose the MFT version (apart from the original not being available...). My IF collection represents the 2005 IDW comics stuff, where Sixshot was a Phase Sixer, and so big and nasty. This toy (along with the MFT OSKOs of Black Shadow and Overlord) gives me just what I want for the character.

    That picture above is pretty good for giving an idea of how the toys will look together - IF Megs is a bit smaller than MST's Megatron and Prime.

    Looking forward to seeing the individual bots, but so far I am thrilled at the possibility of a legends size ABI combiner like this.

    Hey peeps, I have a favour to ask. I want to hand my son my old MfT ko Hulkie set for Christmas now that NA have taken over on my shelf, but I’ve somehow lost the transformation instructions. He does really well with manuals, but not so much freewheeling things, and I’m keen to have things figured out by himself these days. Can anyone scan me their instruction sheet, or point me to an online version? I’m sure any of the dx9 mft or OS ones would do fine. I’d super appreciate it!

    I might have a copy floating around still (never had the team, but when I bought my YX Devy, HZJ sent the instructions for the yellow hulkie instead). o_O
