    I've been eyeing Striker Magnus for quite some time. I currently have Classics Universe 2.0 Prime as my (only) display Prime and while I like him a lot it kinda bugs me that Generations Springer is taller than him.

    I have the newer TR Galvatron and I was wondering how well Striker Magnus would fit with Galvatron, TR Astrotrain, CW Magnus, et cetera.

    I've been trying to find size comparisons or even side-by-side images but it's been difficult. So far the best I've found is a youtube video where a guy very quickly measured Striker Magnus with a tape measurer and said 7.5" but he was clearly taller than that (looked like at least 8" to the top of the head).

    So, yeah, anyone know if Striker Magnus would fit in well with the current voyagers? Would I be better serviced waiting for the upcoming voyager Prime?

    Thanks for any advice :)

    Striker Manus is ugly. I'd skip him. FAR from an acceptable Optimus Prime.

    Still better than Robotmaster OP's!

    But eh, honestly Classics Prime is sort of the best Prime for these sort of things full stop. You could probably make do with the CW Optimus if you need a taller one, but that mold is so much better as Menasor its not funny

    I've honestly been going back and forth on every possible Classics Prime for ages, but the buck finally stopped at MP-10V - I'd recommend it!

    I've been looking at MP10V too though I really like the artistic style of Striker Manus. Are there any more pics of the upcoming voyager Prime other than one render/test shot?

    This'll be the prime that'll go toe to toe with TR Galvatron.
