Honestly I think this Siege UM scales just fine with the regular Hasbro Siege figures.
How do you not collect "mainline scale"?
Easy. I don't buy them.
Me too, just picked up this puppy on eBay just now for $37 plus 3 tax come out to $40. It's been awhile since I purchase from eBay, didn't realize now they have tax too? And now, the long wait of shipping from China to NY. All those improvements by MPF on UM is just too damn good to pass up especially the straight feet, the fillers, and the no damage paint.
I'm surprise BPF actually call their UM as Hyper Magnum just like Toyhouse Factory KO MP22.
It's a pretty good/direct translation of the name-----Ultra and Hyper are almost synonyms, and Magnum is just one letter off and a well-known name/term with similar connotations. AND, it makes decent sense in English and sounds fairly Transformer-y. I'd rather have a "good" name than a unique one. We could easily have gotten "Superfluous Magnetic" instead.
...Did they just upgrade the core robot to the old Ultra Class size?!
AKA my 'perfect' Optimus/Magnus size!?!
AND no dumb Siege damage!?
Heck to the yeah, sign me up!! (and please do this exact same upgrade/size for Earthrise Optimus please and thank you I beg of you ^^)
I can live with that.
It varies on the ebay seller, and where you are ordering from. Some work it into the cost, some charge it separate. If they mentioned it is placed on order is on speedpak you should see it within 6 weeks. Mine has already shipped and I thought it was on preorder. I hope the earthmode version of the official looks good and gets an upgrade too. I have the original and Netflix versions of the mold with all the fixings but I wanted a couple more as my figures take a beating and I play with my kids with them.
Man... so much better looking. No crappy battle damage. I want it!
I already have Siege one though. I really hope we keep getting more characters, hopefully some ones I don't already have!
Hmmm, truck mode still shows huge gap behind front wheel, I thought that was changed?
Finally getting rid of the hasbro siege Ultra Mag for the OS KO version.
I find it funny that tformers.com posted this OS KO Siege Ultra Magnus on their front page.
Order one from ebay asap.
Its the reason i still go to that website. I tend to find updates or news on KO transforming toys or good sales.
Does Tfw2005 advertise or promote KO stuff?
KO’s, no. 3rd party, yes.
Does this have 5 mm ports? Would like to know how it looks/works with different addon/upgrades.
So, this is basically around the height of the CW Leader Magnus now? Damn, I think I should get this one. I would prefer the Earth truck from the upcoming Kingdom version... but I don't know if it will really be all that much better since it will be an Earth truck with arms hanging off of the back. It also won't have all of the other enhancements and filled gaps like this one does.
Although I prefer the aesthetics of the CW Magnus, its build quality is laughable compared to Siege Magnus, especially at this height. I returned Siege Magnus as I didn't find him worth $50 at that height, but this OSKO is definitely in my wheelhouse, and if it's similar to the original Siege mold, its build quality should be a lot better. The CW just has so much hollowness and his joints feel flimsy.
Just weighed my CW Magnus and he's 375 grams. So noticeably lighter than this OSKO Siege mold which is 500g.
Can't wait for this guy to arrive. Will buy the Earthrise figure too since I'm a sucker for Magnus. This guy will look great in the meantime and will replace the crappy combiner wars version.
Mine should be reaching me tomorrow or the day after.
Now its time for BPF to repaint this and come out with Galaxy Force OP. Time for a proper upgrade to the old one
Isn't someone making an actual 3rd Party Cybertron Optimus Prime / Galaxy Convoy - or did that get cancelled/delayed ?
If the factory was feeling creative perhaps they'd consider making a Delta Magnus repaint (before Hasbro does) - since they seem to keep forgetting to do that.
I think this Larger Magnus will go nicely as a size between normal small leader and the commander class. I ordered one too (actually I'll go check the tracking now......)
Ah it left China on the 7th and has not been logged into the otherside yet. I may get it in the comming week though depending on what carrier is accepting it for local delivery. If it arrives soon I'll post some pics.
Nice! When you have received him, if you can, give feedback on:
- The joints, I believe one guy via Google translation mentioned the joints wasn't good as the original. Also he said the ratchet joint is subtle.
- BPF and Hasbro UM armor, can both be swapped out with one another.
- The length of the combined cab and trailer, same as the Original?
- Photos of some comparisons with the original and the CW UM.
