    It's kinda surreal that they just straight up redecoed Kingdom Ultra Magnus into an Optimus Prime.

    That stuff is rather unusual, but since the mold is technically a leader class, and is basically just Optimus' Body type, they just went with it.

    Sweet Anti-grav platform though.

    As a bigger guy myself, I can safely say he's fat. He so fat. So so fat.

    Not when you consider the original source of Magnus' core robot...

    The fists going out the back murder all enthusiasm, the designer should have designed that out.

    I do wish they had increased the parts count a bit to put a couple of folding panels and slots in the torso that allowed for the arms to slot into the torso, like a slightly cruder version of ER Prime's transformation. The fists look bad on every version of this mold. It's hidden a bit better by the Siege versions of the trailer, but they're still there.

    If we use this handy-dandy Chonk chart:

    upload_2021-10-2_15-32-24.jpeg

    He looks to be "A Heckin' Chonker" at least and "Heftychonker" at most. If anything, we should be thankful he isn't "Oh Lawd He Comin".

    (Real talk, getting another Magnus repainted into Optimus is hardly the opening salvo to the end of days since it's happened twice now. And if this doesn't get sold by Hasbro via Generations Selects, then it's even more reason to believe it's not the end of the world. Besides, potato-quality of the picture set aside, he doesn't even look that bad anyway IMHO.)

    The best solution is that the inner Robot has the Skull Mask...

    Or maybe third-party guys make an alternate DM head on the likely chance that SG UM has a skull face?

    We haven't gotten any Leader guys in the Shattered Glass line yet, have we?

    If you count SG Prime then it breaks the pattern set in the SG subline of deluxes getting new heads because of Ratchet. So far outside of the subline there has been no new tooling and within the subline deluxes get new heads, voyagers get new accessories and commander got nothing new.

    Just count Optimus as a Voyager and Ratchet is his new accessory obviously.

    The deluxes they released needed the new heads to match their originals whereas Ratchet really didn't so I'm unsure if they'd have even made one

    Those bases look really cool. I wonder if they would be available alone considering we have three colors.

    I always did wish that magnus had transformed like the g1 toy. They could have had the bumper collapse in on itself, to fill in that spot

    Well it doesn't look that bad. They could have at least had the fists flip in

    The red and purple bases appear to be sold by themselves.
