    I'm on the fence if I should get Commander Ultra Magnus...thoughts? I have Leader Kingdom Ultra Magnus, and I'm not sure if the size of the commander fits my collection. I feel he's out of scale in robot mode.

    Takes a day to get used to it… then the leader class looks too small. He’s epic.

    Proportionally commander looks better for sure, but he towers over everyone right?

    Kingdom has 86 beat in both sunbow scale and proportions. The shoulder kibble on 86 is crazy. He's also way too huge, looking down on even Grimlock. Though I'm a bit more forgiving for his being massively oversized as he needs to transform into a car carrier that can fit deluxes. Sunbow scale and proportions aside though he never the less as a more accurate anime aesthetic. And completely destroys Kingdom in alt mode. If you don't care about scale and proportions his massive size may even be a benefit, as he looks like he could bully Galvatron like he's a kindergartener.

    Really tempted to get this and collect SS 86 too. Wonder if the next commander class is Optimus Prime

    I'm in the same boat. He really does look to be too large in robot mode.

    The scale is the only downside to me but can see how it works as he is perfect scale in alt mode. Hard decision as I still have both Siege and Kingdom. Plus it will through off the look of my SG Magnus. Decisions decisions.

    The scale of SS86 Ultra Magnus is what's stopping me from getting him. According to the Sunbow scale chart, Magnus should be as tall as the Dinobots. Not taller.

    And before anyone says the SS86 Dinobots are too small, they're not. According to the Sunbow scale chart they're exactly the right size when compared with SS86 Kup, Arcee, Hot Rod, etc. The problem is, SS86 UM is way too tall.

    Even though the SS86 version is really nice, and I'll probably get him eventually as a stand alone, as of right now I'm more than fine with the Kingdom/Shattered Glass versions.

    The Shattered Glass figure is affecting my decision too. I don't like the idea of having mismatched Magnuses (Magni?).

    Thanks, I think I'll wait for a discount. I grabbed Rodimus Prime at retail and could have gotten it for $20-25 on deepdiscount. I mostly keep my figures in robot mode as well.

    I'm having the same problem for the same reasons. I still have him on pre-order through Amazon but I have my doubts. He's just so big but an Ultra Magnus that is all one transformation is really hard to resist!
