    Biggest issue I have is that, instead of doing a new trailer, they took the Unicorn Trilogy and retail it. We want a G1 Magnus, not a half assed retool a year later.

    In all fairness, Siege Magnus isn't really going for G1 in vehicle mode. I think it really excels at what it's trying to do. I understand if it's not your thing, though. I just really like it

    I think it looks good. Nice and bright white and a nice blue too. And none of that battle damage crap.

    The top of the trailer is the same height as the top of the cab. That shouldn't be so. That is why I say I think of the toy as being embarrassing - its just way too small / out of proportion. Even if we compare Siege Ultra Magnus' vehicle mode to RiD Ultra Magnus, it's still an embarrassment. If only Takara had done an extensive premium recolor like they used to, it would have looked a lot better. But they haven't / weren't allowed.

    I definitely like the overall look of him. Does he cheap out a bit on the engineering of the cab? Definitely. Could he use a bit more paint? That's Hasbro standard.

    But he's more than decent.

    his visor is permanently attached on the head
    but inside there is indeed normal robot eye
    both visor and eye are lightpiping , but it doesnt shine well unless you shine the ligh direct behind his head

    Hmmmmm...I have the Siege figure that I removed all the battle damage on and I DO like it but the temptation for an Earth mode is great.

    I kinda wish they added a silver cab stripe and painted the front bumper red. I also wish they used a brighter silver on the rims, The fists also needed to be hidden better if they were going to move that carrier back like that. The full robot mode is the real buying point here though. I'm kinda disappointed that they didn't add an Autobot logo on that right shoulder. They left a big blank spot for it. All in all I'm up for another go with this figure. Here's hoping we don't get a Studio Series UM that\'s EVEN BETTEREREST THAN THIS ONE!!1! XD You know they would do it too!

    Sorry, but I don't understand why it's an embarrassment when comparing it to the RiD figure. To me, it pulled off the vehicle mode almost flawlessly

    Man this figure looks dooooope!! The issues with the cab and trailer don't bother me; a car carrying semi isn't the most aesthetically pleasing vehicle anyway, so I'll have him in Robot mode almost all the time. Siege Magnus is one of the darlings of my collection, so I'm happy they just retooled the mold. I will say that I really, really, really hope they make Rodimus and his cab two separate pieces though!

    Not bad at all. I will buy it. However the eventual OS with retool would be its best version. Hope they can hide those hands.

    My qualm is the trailer isn\'t exactly like G1.  Hopefully there will be a 3rd party to do that.

    Flawlessly? Not even close. God Magnus' cab looks like a regular cab, with armor on the front end. Siege looks like a squashed down cab stacked on top of some blue cow catcher thing. Neither the cab or bumper follow the same shape like God Magnus does. It's weak. I don't how how a cab manages to have an hourglass figure.

    Hey... a remold of a Siege figure that I think isn't bad at all.

    I'm not double-dipping as I'm quite happy with my Siege one and I spend more than enough on it at full price and the very much needed kit.

    But if I didn't have it, I would consider this one quite fine.

    It's really sad that they didn't learn from their mistakes and the hands are still sticking out in the truck mode and that they didn't try harder to redo the trailer to carry the cars as it should...

    Oh well... if I would see it on liquidation like I did for my spare Siege one, I might get one just for the heck of it.

    I was genuinely impressed how they took the RiD alt and seemlessly turned in to a G1 bot.

    Ok, maybe flawless was a bit of an exaggeration, but I still really like the shaping. Maybe it could have been a bit thicker, but to me, it works. I can totally see this thing plowing through waves of enemies, or smashing through a wall like a battering ram. It feels like a was vehicle, like something out of Mad Max.

    Nah, roll with it. It's instantly recognizable for what it is.
