    That makes me feel like NA really treat them as different characters, not just simply repaints!

    I thought they were doing away with/redesigning the double chest?

    lol...they were never doing that. only the new fans in the thread were saying stuff like that. those molds are long cut and the bots are well into final assembly. what we see is what we get.

    May release SG and Nemesis together with classic G1 after all with Darius already happened, in worst case my wallet can breath :D  I m for SG but if it they have no trailer I could also buy Nemesis for cheaper price.

    If there is no trailer and I really fall in love with the normal figure I’ll probably get the Nemesis repaint.

    I don't see any difference in the head, but the smoke stacks do look different for these guys. The crotch and legs look mostly like their Ultra Magnus crotch and legs, but the front crotch flap has some slight mold differences.

    The forehead is slightly angled in a way that makes the face/eyes look angry. Its small but definitely different.

    Ah, now I see it! Yeah, that's pretty subtle.

    Dang really can’t get over how much more I like this crotch, smokestack, and head more than the cartoon accurate one. Just stylized in the right ways, more aggressive and streamlined

    Here's a link to a stop motion animation of the new Newage Ultra Magnus with the prime mold. The transformation seems much more simple than I thought, and it pulls off the Ultra Magnus and Prime mold very well. I'm sending this here to spark a conversation or something, to see how others think. It makes me eager to see Optimus Prime and how he compares to this mold. Don't know if this is unrelated or something, but the inner Magnus mold will show what Prime will be like.

    The weird double chest honestly doesn't look too bad here, transformation looks really fun too. Seeing this in action makes me wonder if they'll try and get a Ginrai out of this mold.

    I think most of the differences between the Prime and Magnus versions of the cab figure are in the legs/hitch section.

    I’m really interested in seeing a video of the Prime version in action, just so we can compare the two.

    I skipped the MS one because it was a pretty weak remold, if they found a way to include his Powermaster I would have to pick it up.

    Looks just as good as the Mp-44 without any of the kibble.

    again, the gaping faux double chest design NA went with just kills it for me in an otherwise amazing repaint for Nemesis and SG primes. personally just can't get over seeing that flaw. :(
