    That's brilliant thank you so much! While understandably easily arguable not in scale I don't mind that at all! I am extremely tempted to get him rather than try and hunt down another Optimus Prime. I love that his cab doesn't turn into white Optimus leaving that bot as effectively his own character.

    I was curious of how well SS86 Magnus could carry the rest of the Movie autobots.

    Turns out, not so well really. T30/SS86 Arcee fits pretty well, SS86 Kup KIND of okay but not great, and Siege-Springer SS86-Hot Rod and TR/Legends Blurr don't fit well at all.

    Yeah, he's kind of not a good car carrier.

    How do you guys like Studio Series Ultra Magnus compared to the Masterpiece one from like a decade ago? I’ve passed on Studio Series because I have the Masterpiece one, but I do think the Studio Series one looks awesome. I’d be all over that if I didn’t have the Masterpiece.

    If your into the mainline it’s a must have…
    If you’re just collecting the best version of your favorite character and you already have masterpiece… you might not need him. Your money could go towards a something you don’t yet own that you need.
    I was hesitant after already buying kingdom.
    I have zero regrets he’s nearly perfect.

    If they're in the process of doing all the minibots in nice deluxe releases why did they do a core Wheelie recently? It's bad enough this will be my third Ultra Magnus in the space of a few years but burdening us with multiple Wheelies? :sly:

    At least Wheelie's cheap. Buying an Ultra Magnus will never not be an investment that last leaves you feeling stupid you bought it because something better came out later.

    Wether or not you're like me and don't have the stomach to just toss the previous one/s out but know selling it/them is a borderline impossibility because of the new release plus the customizations/upgrade parts you've done decreases the likelyhood someone will buy them is a matter of your mileage varying.

    Weird take…. but to each their own.
    I consider this a hobby… I’m not addicted to plastic crack.
    I have a choice. I bought Magnus. Because I wanted it… I never wasted my money on kingdom. He was a free replacement for a defective galvatron. I spent 70$ on kingdom Not-Masterpiece Optimus trying to make him relevant. No… just no. Wasting time and money on collecting is what we choose todo. If something new and better does Not come out… I’ll just give the money to another toy company with a better product…. Because I chose to.
    I was about to dump my bulk and buy something new because hasbro was just cranking out random products and not touching ss86 (I’m old let’s get this done already) and they dropped Magnus… the real Magnus.
    What todo with modern update toy Magnus… eBay?
