    Well, we all knew about RID Magnus' inferiority complex, but man, talk about overcompensation!

    Looks like a weird hybrid of Rid Magnus and Beast Wars Optimal Optimus.

    True best save judgement for the color pics. Magnus' face really looks like Furai Model Starscream's face, as much as I love that kit the face is the one part which I didn't like.

    That fire convoy looks radical! Maybe its just because we only have renders, but that Magnus almost looked like an Iron Factory figure for a half second there. Lots of people have said this already but too bad it doesn't actually transform. Heres to hoping that the price reflects that. also does 10 inches seem a little... short for a non transforming figure of this style? Again all of this is fine as long as its reflected in the price.

    I believe the proper terminology for this Magnus is "Big Chonky Boi." I can dig it.

    Now that we got a better look from the rendering, good grief, those forearms size are ginormous! Look at that thing, it's bigger than his body and leg. The proportion is a wild one and this including the wing and shoulder cannon too. God/RID Magnus is my second favorite UM incarnation after G1 so I would likely be getting this but man...certainly not feeling for the proportion. Now it will just depend on price.

    Aw man! DUE-CAST!? That's like.. a step up from DIE-CAST!

    On a more serious note, this looks 'okay' I guess.. But I personally don't like all the extra junk they gave him.

    Banana Force? More like Banana Republic amirite lol got em

    I want redone RID Prime and Magnus toys...but not like this. These are basically Action Masters, and in general I'm not a fan of those. Asking people to potentially pay $100+ for Action Masters just seems insulting.

    I actually like their model kits but the $300+ figures are overkill

    It took me awhile, but I just realized why he looks so weird to me: he isn’t 70% leg like the original.

    Like Optimus, I’m keeping this on my radar at least until we get a price tag.
