    Now I have him in hand this Magnus isn't as bad as I feard but it's convince me he needs to be done again at the commander price point so he can actually carry other TFs in his trailer.

    It's honestly not a great kit. I disliked it so much by the end of it, that I restored him to stock configuration because of how cruddy it is.

    It works well for the Siege version, in vehicle mode, because it hides the horrible gap in the front of the cab, but it lacks stability.
    It's terrible during transformation and in robot mode because it's just terribly assembled. (The design isn't horrible, though.)
    When transforming, the side panels of the trailer don't want to detach from the new gray hook pieces (look like they replicate the Hasbro pieces down to the last detail, but do not in reality) and takes a lot of gut-wrenching force to pop 'em off. Guess what happens? Those gray connectors come away from the legs with the panels, each and every time. Why? They just tabbed all of the leg pieces together and nothing is pinned, screwed, or glued in place. You end up putting their legs back together each and every time you transform him. The only screws/pins are for the new wheels and panels that help the leg "extend".
    The panel does move out of the way for alt mode and the legs compress (think CW Deluxes). In robot mode and vehicle mode, the legs are not obtrusive, so there's no worry there. It's just the construction that's a big problem.

    In robot mode, for whatever reason... Those connector tabs will not keep his leg shells on to save a life. One tap and they'll come flying off, yet in vehicle mode, you can't get the trailer to detach from 'em. It's so inconsistent and annoying.

    I hope the set they make for Kingdom is better assembled and actually solid, because the Siege version SUCKS. I like DNA's stuff, I've bought a sizeable number of their products, so this hate is coming out of being purely frustrated and angry at them dropping the ball and wasting nearly $30.00 of my money on a kit that doesn't work.

    The accessories are nice, but feel completely unnecessary and aren't really G1-centric, so you're basically taking a G1 character and making him into an Animated/Prime homage. (The hammer.)

    Saaaay! I never thought of using the armored forearm pieces as hand covers! That's no bad!

    Did anyone preorder Magnus from Target, only to have the item delayed multiple times? I pre-ordered back on Dec 6 (they had a $10 toy promotion)with a delivery in April, which was then delayed to May and now June. At this point, my credit card will expire before it gets charged for this.

    I just really want a Delta Magnus repaint from the Kingdom mold.

    It certainly helps a lot. It kinda makes me wonder is they could have made some extending forearms or something to hide the hands.

    All they had to do is carve a cavity and allow the hands to swivel inward on a pin. Unlike some fans, I don't really mind visible wrist cavities if it means not dealing with visible fists in truck mode.

    I'm not too sure that would work. The fists are pretty big so you'd have to make the hands smaller or the forearms a bit too big. Honestly I think they could have just left the cab further back in the trailer like the Siege toy and it would have been fine. I tried the Kingdom cab in the Siege trailer and I thought it looked good still. Too bad the shades of blue don't match or I'd do a mix and match XD

    That's kind of what Target does. Unfortunately, there is probably a decent chance they'll eventually cancel your order.

    I’ve been seeing a lot of Kingdom Ultra Magnus at both Walmart and Target. Seems that saturation is hitting for the figure, which is good.

    I wouldn't buy it, but I would still like to see it exist. The cab robot should be called Magna Convoy.

    I would also like a Powered Convoy repaint. With a bonus figure painted as the buggy.

    Powered Convoy/Delta Magnus would be the only way I buy the Kingdom mould.

    They’d probably repaint Power of The Primes Beachcomber into Powered Buggy.
