    Based on MP-10, looks like this is firmly in the deluxe class at 5.5 inches.

    I'm pretty sure that this is meant for CW Optimus/Legends Ginrai. A white one for Ultra Magnus is likely to be made.

    Wait a minute, has anyone else noticed that new Hot Spot torso for CW Defensor? Those are definitely the CW limbs.

    That's some slick engineering.
    Especially love how they've gone for hidden rear wheels in the calves. Even the slender torso and funny wrist wheels become acceptable at this size. I like it, a lot !!

    For me, this is the holy grail !! This is how an MP Prime's leg should have been done. Rear wheels hidden as much as possible for cartoon accuracy. Instead of just simple covers.

    Looks like X2's Prime will be joining my 700 other prime figures. <facepalm>

    This would be great! I'd really my Magnus to be, well, Magnus; not Animus controlling Magnus like a suit of powered armor.

    I usually don't say things like this but what is the point of the version. There is already the MP-10V. I just don't see the point in making it.

    Its look reminds me of the G1 Ginrai toy and its minimalistic design convinces me its meant to be inserted PMOP/Ginrai/Magnus. Though not revealed, I'm pretty sure that a new head for whatever trailer body they are meant to occupy would be included.

    I dunno. After looking at it some more I think it's even too large for that. The Ultra Magnus/PMOP Prime cab is pretty darn small and this Prime looks bigger than a legends class. The cabs for those two are barely legends sized.

    The cab on TR PMP is only slightly smaller than the original Power Master Optimus Prime. You could easily incorporate a bot that size.

    Uhh, what? They're only slightly smaller than the voyager MP10 KO.

    You're talking about the cab to Combiner Wars Ultra Magnus and Power Master Optimus Prime?

    If so, not even close. They're miniscule. Classics Prime is at least twice the size if not even larger than that and that was a small voyager.

    I'll take pics if you need them of CW Magnus and Classics Prime in alt modes if you need reference.

    You could, sure, but this one won't be it.
