    I think it due to where the trailer bed/hitch sits over the top of it but you might be right.

    Already have him in my hands and I must say... WOW. Very solid and clean in vehicle form, It's an all in one without leftover pieces. For obvious reasons is a little smaller than MST Optimus v1.0 but they scale together better than I expected.

    One thing that I don't like is the difference between whites between pieces. I'll show you pictures tonight but it's a VERY recommendable figure to let MST Magnus V2.0 stored in the dark. :lol

    Enjoy my pictures!. Fits perfect with MST figures. Better in everything than MST Magnus v.2.0. It's a very solid figure, everything is used for vehicle form and bot form. But the mold of Optimus is full of gaps, after transforming him over and over, I admit that I don't like this NA Prime, the MST Prime v1 still being superior and has a cleaner shape than NA. But NA Magnus is almost perfect, I'll wait for an upgrade kit for the back of the waist and for the arms on the top.

    A recommendation: use the line of the window to open the matrix chamber easily. Push with the nail where the line is (marked with a yellow arrow). It's like a little gap. You won't chipping the paint using this way.

    @ManelFigures Thanks for the photos. Can I ask for some comparisons (thoughts and pics) to MFT's 2.0 Magnus (OSKO of MS 1.0)?

    Are you saying you got Thunder Manus for the same price as Delta? If so, where at if you don’t mind my asking?

    Anyways... issues with weak joints in the hips and knees and the crotch plate scratches aside. I do really like this figure, he looks great.

    If you’re reading this forum on your phone, just rotate it to landscape and additional info just appears - like people’s signatures and their social media links.

    I mean, as a figure - in bot mode - it's a pretty fantastic-looking one. Absolutely zero buyer's remorse in that regard.
    With that said, I'm never gonna touch this guy again. The beyond-fiddly transformation was a nightmare, with all the flipping & folding around, trying to be extra careful to not scrape or chip any paint. It sure is remarkable engineering at this scale, but definitely not fun to me personally, when everything feels so fragile and easy to mess up.

    I guess it's too much to hope NA will be kind enough to give us Nemesis Prime packed in robot form, isn't it? XD

    This figure definitely has one of those ‘gets easier the more you do it’ transformations.

    I agree. At first I thought the core White Prime was a bit of a pain. Now I can transform it with ease and I find it enjoyable overall.

    Yeah I agree it gets much easier. The wheel wells/lower abdomen sides are still not secure in bot mode in my copy though, they come undone if I manipulate him. Thankfully Magnus mode is solid and fun to mess with.

    Agree, the more you play with it, the easier it get to transform him
