    I really like that design. All I would change is the color of the head, and market it as Ultra Magnus.

    I love the fact you kinda gave him fingerless gloves/knuckle dusters. Makes him look like he is ready to throw down even with out all his armor on.

    Botcon Battletrap today. Mold flash aside, he's probably my favorite version of the T30 Springer mold. Gorgeous!!!

    Well, it’s Monday. Might as well do a Deep Dive headlong into the week.

    Thanks! Yeah, I saw the molding was there, and Magnus is known for his melee prowess, so why not?
    Thank you! I feel like the simple act of taking his chest armor off really improves his proportions and silhouette, if your ok with inaccuracy.

    First time I see this deco and honestly, I would have jumped at that if I'd seen it as it's absolutely gorgeous.

    I'm afraid to even look it up as I can only imagine what he goes for.

    I’m absolutely okay with inaccuracy— I prefer it, if it improves the toy. I wish now that I hadn’t thrown away the armor of mine, because this looks great.

    Cost me about $150, which isn't bad given that it was sealed in bag. Had some issues with mold flash on the backpack/cockpit piece area where it tabs into the back (shaved them down and now it sorta fits) so initially couldn't get him to copter mode. The shoulder armor swivel was very tight due to some mold flash as well. Typical low-run Botcon product. Otherwise, extremely good as to be expected with the Springer mold, one of the GOATs.

    There won’t be many who agree with me on this but that Mould for every version of Magnus benefits from leaving the chest plate off.

    It thins out the center area and makes him look far more jacked and super hero like.

    Most of the time I have at least one if not all of mine (Save Nova, he looks better with the wings) like that.

    Inspired by Death’s awesome Magnus:

    Great! You answered a question I had about Siege Magnus. I like his truck mode and wondered how he would look without the chest piece and helmet.

    Testing out my SND Primo X-Mortis wings on Legacy Nova Prime. I really dig the poseability, but I think I'll knock out the pin and take off the stock wings so I can get some range of motion out of those shoulders.
    Now just waiting on my Siege Magnus leg extenders to come in, and I'll have to grab some fillers for the back guns.
