    After watching the review, they should have SERIOUSLY retooled Earthrise Optimus to fit the trailer.

    This figure is a mess.

    I feel like every time someone mentions that Hasbro should've retooled ER Prime into Ultra Magnus they miss how difficult it actually and how in the end it's very much more trouble than it's worth.

    Better than just having a bad figure.

    Arguably, your method of how they should've handled it could potentially turn out much worse than the one we see here.

    It's just such a mess, particularly compared to other Kingdom/SS86 1986 figures. They should have come up with a new mold much later rather than rushing out a botch job retool.

    I like it... at least in armored mode. It looks no worse than the Siege version in its armored form. That said the inner bot is worse than the Siege version, but honestly, I'll never display the inner bot because I absolutely hate that concept when it comes to Ultra Magnus.

    Yeah, considering how Earthrise Optimus is the best Optimus ever, I doubt so.

    But that doesn't make any sense at all to prove your point. Just because the base figure is good doesn't mean that trying to slap armor onto it would create the best outcome.

    For the time it did.

    There have been a lot of improvements in engineering over the years to make something even better now.

    I'm really torn on this one.
    I'm one of those that only displays one of each character.
    I really appreciate the G1 aspects of this Kingdom retool, but little things like leaving off the red on the shins and fully painting the outer blue on the calves (like the Siege version has) would've helped with the accuracy.

    I'll likely get this one too, and see what bits can be interchanged between the two. To see if I can manage to combine the best parts of each one together.

    Big meh. I'll probably only get him to go with the Toy Galvatron.

    Hope Perfect Effect is working on an white inner robot now.

    I do plan on getting this. While I don’t think it’s a mess, it is just a re-skin into an Earth mode from the Siege mold with as little tooling as necessary.

    I think others were expecting much more. I was expecting just this. He’ll look great with my other Generations scaled Movie cast. I already own much better Magnuses in terms of screen accuracy and engineering that are half the size. I love the character, so he’s probably replacing the Siege version.

    Robot mode is okay, but then so is Siege’s so I’ll stick with that. On seeing the earlier pictures of the figure, I ended up ordering CW version of Ultra Magnus for an Earth mode Magnus for a decent price. It’s not G1 at all, but it’s an interesting figure and I’m happy with it for now.

    If MP Ultra Magnus were to drop exponentially in price, or a new line in future provides another G1 style Magnus who has the proper G1 type cab/trailer, I may pick that up.



    should a proper G1 style (in both modes) appear in future (I’d imagine it’d be in a different line altogether) or if MP Magnus magically drops in price, I might just opt for that.

    I'm much happier with the look of this over Siege Ultra Magnus!

    Unlike everyone else, I never got Seige Magnus. And I reckon that one's hard to find by now (and the ones that are there are probably in the grubby trolly hands of scalpers). So I might have more incentive to consider this fella.

    Guess I'll see what guys like Peaugh and PrimeVsPrime say.

    I like the Siege version enough, and while I appreciate the attempt at retooling the trailer to homage elements of his original trailer there's a bit of an uncanny valley effect of seeing the G1 style cab with a more RiD looking trailer. The Siege version being a full RiD reference in alt mode, at least to me, pulls the whole thing together better.

    I wonder if anyone will attempt a G1 trailer kit for this core robot. I can imagine why they'd have held off on doing anything that extensive for Siege since there were rumors of an ER Magnus that used the Prime core, but now that it won't be happening any time soon...here's a window for them.

    If you're in the US, Amazon has him *right now* for $48.

    (Just as a general heads up, Amazon has a bunch of Siege stuff at retail or lower. Springer's been in and out of stock, I got an Astrotrain for $30 a few months ago....for whatever reason they've got a bunch of that but the ER stuff is mostly gobbled up with markup. Siege really is a forgotten son at this point.)
