I love it, and i don\'t even want it.
Most of the "good", action-master action figures are officially licenced, because they're not allowed to make transforming figures. Why on earth anyone would consciously, without any limitations, make an un-licenced, non-transforming TF figure is beyond me.
It's like falling into a barrel full of milk-producing glands and coming out sucking your own thumb...
Their Fire Convoy was a pretty decent "mecha-ization" take on RID Prime, but this Magnus just looks like crap. It's everything people criticize Flame Toys' original designs for cranked up to eleven. The proportions and details almost look bent and forced into place, like they took a nice design and just started dragging corners on every polygon to distort it. The face is just hideous, totally at odds with the mecha/Brave-style they're seemingly going for, and the arms, wings and cannons are grossly oversized.
I can see what they were aiming for, some super dynamic Brave/Gundam-style design, but the thing with those series were they never pushed it too far because they knew it'd look silly. This goes too far, and just looks like a dog's dinner. Just look at the random angles on the forearms. It's all so messy and disjointed, like there was no clear vision for the final product and every piece was designed independently. The original RID Magnus design was such a great, towering robot, and the animation model is an excellent example of "mecha-ization" whilst still looking visually appealing.
You can just say boobs my guy, I like to think most here aren't so cossetted they'd take offense to seeing that word written out.
I believe the site has become more child-friendly these days, plus, where I'm from, the term was this instead:
Meh. Not accurate to anything.
As child friendly as it seems (with a few figures not being allowed) the MP arcee discussion includes swearing, boob talk, and whatnot. From what I can gather, they understand that 3p and MP figures aren’t really for kids. Tho honestly I still think there should just be an optional 18+ label on threads so they don’t have to police as harshly on figures.
(Not questioning mods, just suggesting a feature)
Is it? Can you give a straight forward answer for if this site is meant for children?
I think they meant.
I’ll give you that one
Because kids do browse here. They don't post, but they are here, I know because I was one of them growing up. But I posted that because I find discussions about breast vocabulary on a thread about toys.
I mean... it is also that
This is less an artists rendition of RID UM and more an entirely unique blue guy that can kinda do the thing RID UM did. Think convenient allusion more than homage.
I do like general mecha. How was their prime?
It would be cool if they do RID Scourge, Gigatron and Devil Gigatron at some point. I would buy them all. I know we already have Fanshobby Scourge but one from Banana Force would look way cooler probably.
This looks awesome, anyone get him and have him next to fans hobby Scourge? Would love to see them in proportion!
Wow! Looks great!!
It is a great pairing, i've got them together on my shelf. Sometimes with Perfect Beast PE-DX09, which is the closest i've got to Megatron from that era.
