    Magnus really stands out with his dirty look :/

    But I'm hoping for earthen remolds that might not have the battle paint.

    I cleaned up the silver dry-brushing on his chest, feet, and thighs and he's much better. It was overdone on him moreso than on other toys. I left enough to make the details pop but I'm happier that he looks more blue than silver finally. Really happy with this guy overall though. Makes me wish for a Siege Hot Rod and Kup. *gasp*

    I know they are different molds, but does the magnus armor fit Optimus?

    Not really. Parts do, but not the whole kit n' kaboodle. There are pics in this thread or the Siege appreciation thread, I believe.

    Size isn't important. It's all about how you play with it.

    Just make sure you put the armor on. For protection.

    I tried my hand at Blue Bolts using Cog and was pleasantly surprised at the results.

    Can Cog mount on top of the trailer like that?

    Taking a look at the stack issue (them not wanting to line up to lock in) and the fix being to shave some of the small nub down, I went back and took a look at the original cad renders and preproduction photos. For some reason they added more length to them on the final product. This ends up interfering with them sliding on straight and lining up correctly to lock in. The top of the stack hits itself off the inner ledge of the inner stack without modification done.

    I’ve shaved mine down to preproduction levels to see any possible issues or side affects of doing so. Everything is fine and I now have zero issues getting things to lock in.

    Man, you are not helping me....UM looks really good with that Blue Bolt weapon. I'm tried to avoid Cog, but that Blue Bolt kind of warrant me to get Cog especially if it can also mount on the alt.mode. My RID UM needs his Blue Bolt weapon.
    I want to know too...

    Had to keep the silver portion combined to have the peg on the underside but he totally can fit on UMs vehicle mode as Blue Bolts!

    My guess is the preproduction nubs were too short to securely hold blast effects, and they lengthened them without checking the other tolerances.

    only thing i like about him are the hollowed out shoulder thingies. they look like shelving.

    also his fender butt restricts leg movement.

    also that wimpy face.

    Does the armor do anything when he's in little prime mode?

    LOL These are great! I was wondering if there was anything official that the armor could do while in mini-prime mode.

    Shockwave at least gets a skateboard out of his bits...
