    That's something else. Cool to see.

    Given the armor bits cover the arm and shoulders, I think the inner bot should be blue on those parts. It'd be more accurate to the Core bot.

    Also wished the armor would have come with an extra skull face plate to match SG Magnus proper.

    The armor does come with a clear, skull faceplate and it's pictured in the post you quoted.

    Sorry. Was on mobile. Looks similar to the one on the version I have. (Mine uses G2 Hero Prime as a stand-in though...)±

    Looks good with that axe.

    Second pic... Someone shop this onto Abbey Road. Hehe.

    Every time I see this mold and especially in other color redecos, I am still pissed off at MakeToys for never release Ultra Magnus in his original colors! The image below is the closest for my reality. Damn you MakeToys & Kos :banghead: :banghead:

    That's the rts mold. They technically didn't even show gento in the dia colors.

    Anyways the Cross Dimen Magnus is better anyways so hopefully that comes

    Oh man... this UM recolor brought back painful memories. I had commissioned a custom recolor, sent the figure / trailer to this customizer from Malaysia. Never got anything back.

    What a scumbag fraudster.

    My bad. Haven't taken it out of storage since... 2013? Last pic I had posted of a trailer has that date. Even then, I think I actually put a Prime faceplate instead.

    I mean I can't be the only one that forgets what some accessories were like... You received a thread inactive for three years with a what appears to be a cool, but one-of-a-kind Gento deco too!

    Another deco I thought feasible was Galaxy Convoy... A flip of that Josh sketch of Nova Prime using that mold.

    Made this digi like 6 years ago... Eesh.

    That sucks. I actually had that happen when I first started collecting back in 2011 or so with a Shadow Commander from FPJ. Kept the product and pretty much laughed in my face.

    Okie.

    I guess each to their own, but I'm not a fan of the Cross Dimension UMagnus design. So I'm not looking forward to it. I would rather have the old Reveal The Shield mold in UMagnus color w/ the battle armor like that digibash. Also, I'm more of an Armor UMagnus fan so that may have some bias as well.

    I feel your pain man!
