    I don't very often, but the Iron Factory open hands are awesome.

    INCOMING!!!

    Hopefully NA read our comments and we get some block filler hands to hide the visible fist look. Lol

    Oh man! This is coming faster than I anticipated. Really hope NA addressed some of the gripes the community had with both their Prime and Ultra Magnus. Can’t wait to see in hand pics. Hopefully sometime next week?!

    Not sure if this is news or not but the showz descriptions under the photos claim that the blue will be a bit darker and the red panel on the inside of the armored foot will be blue so they have been listening to some complaints!

    No that’s not a reaction to complaints, NA announced those changes from the promo pics when they dropped them, before anyone could complain

    Ah I see. Strange that they would release the promo pictures anyways if they had to plans to change a major facet of the figures appearance.

    Really on the fence with this one. Would the MS one be out of scale with Darius? It's way cheaper and cleaner imo.

    Seeing the posts here I guess no one knows what the end result will be.

    Uhm, the Magic Square UM isn't really cheaper, at least not by ShowZ standards. NA UM is currently $85 on ShowZ. The Magic Square UM armor is $49 (originally it was $53), and the white Prime is $39. Granted, you can probably find the white prime for cheaper, although it's gonna be hard to find nowadays. I paid about $35 for my white Prime on Robotoybase. But those prices end up not really being any cheaper, and going off of original prices, it actually ends up being more expensive (around $90).

    About scale, Magic Square UM is 14cm, and NA Galvatron is 10cm. I don't know how tall NA UM is. Here's a Pic for comparison:

    Yeah like @TheGrimReaper said MS isn’t cheaper because you have to buy the white prime and Armor separately. The $49 or whatever is for the armor only.

    If you mean MS Magnus v1 he’ll be shorter than NA Magnus and scale fine I guess. He won’t be shiny like Darius though.

    V1 UM from MS is 11cm, which puts him 1cm taller than NA Galvatron. Also did some more digging and I believe NA UM is around 13cm, which would put him 1cm shorter than MS UM V2. How all of that works into the grand scale of G1, I have no clue. Scale in that show is all over the place LOL. I say just go with whatever makes you happy and with whatever looks right @Dead End14.

    Edit: I forgot, but MFT did an OS KO of the V1 UM from MS, and that figure is 13cm, so that would put him around the same size as the NA UM. If you don't care about the whole white Prime gimmick, that one would be the cleanest looking option, only having the truck front on the back of the figure, and I guarantee you can find that thing for pretty cheap somewhere. On ShowZ (even tho it's sold out), it's only $28. So you have plenty of options for your display.

    Yes! Last two months are going to be very good for legends scale fans.
    My NA shelf was getting very lopsided; UM & OP should even things out.

    Thanks guys. Still not sure about him though cause of the double cab thing and the hands... Hope a review comes up soon.
