    That alone may very well have just moved this figure from a definite no to a strong possibility...

    Oh & you forgot his pirate coat in that list!

    I just wish he was molded in black to further reinforce that theme...

    magnus looks disproportioned... tiny legs... huge chest and a head that fits with his chest, but not with his legs x.x
    thundertron must be mine!

    Can't wait to see a video review of Thundertron, I cannot figure out how his shoulders and paws switch places during transformation.

    Is it just me, or does Magnus have a very different version of the usual Autobot sigil on his alt mode? The one on his chest is par for the course, but the alt mode one...I've never seen before.

    It just has gaps in it because of the molded detail it's painted over. the spots missing out of it match up to the molded "holes" under the symbol.

    It's not that complicated, actually. His robot mode arms fold up into the beast body, and the lower arms (the clear part) connect to the front beast leg at the top of the leg. You can see this in the second photo, with his shoulder detail being under the beast head. The actual beast front leg is a completely different set of parts, seperate from his arm. So you unfold the lower arm, pull the rest of the arm out of the body, and then using the actual beast mode leg, rotate the paw around to go above his robot mode shoulder. His actual beast mode front legs start at the blue part you can see connects via ball joint in the side view photo. his robot mode lower arm is just pegged on to the front of that blue part, creating the illusion that the clear part is the beast mode shoulder.

    I am terrible at wording things like this, but I hope people can understand it.

    Magnus looks good, and looks like his weapon A: Locks and B: Actually looks pretty decent in both modes.

    That said, I like the Cyberverse version so much the Voyager seems pretty superfluous so I'm not going to bother.

    And Thundertron just doesn't appeal to me. The cat mode doesn't look... like a cat. It looks like the same cat-transformer shape that HasTak has been trying to convince us is that cats look like for years. And the robot mode doesn't even appeal to me either. I don't like the head or colors and the skirt armor doesn't look good to me either.

    I hope if Magnus shows up in the Prime cartoon he's sort of halfway between Rescue Bot's Chase and IDW's Magnus.

    Hilarity.

    I kinda like the proportions of the CVC better too...

    EDIT:
    And after seeing this review...


    - I think I'm gonna have to pass on Thundertron as well... crap - he was starting to grow on me...
