    He posted a direct comparison. I'm not sure how you can argue with that.

    Because he's completely wrong and by a huge margin?

    He posed that the CW Magnus and PMOP cab is barely smaller than MP-10V.

    That's way off.

    In the 3rd party forum, anyone can find anything to argue about. ;) 


    That being said, I really do hope for an upgraded transformable cab for my Legends Ultra Magnus and upcoming Legends Ginrai.

    I'm not sure how you define 'barely' then. From the picture, they look to be a very similar size.

    Unless you're also using a different definition of "cab".

    EDIT - I assume you're referring to actual cabin of the truck, in which case you are correct. But that's just becuase the PMOP cabin is disproportionately small. In general terms (as least as far as TFs are concerned), the whole structure is referred to as the cab.

    Yeah, I mean cab in RL truck terms (so not including the trailer).

    Well for me, from a purely selfish standpoint, there's never enough OP's out there... this one looks very G1 like and hits quite a few of the right buttons for me :)

    Are you saying Legends when you mean Deluxe? I just took some pictures with Legends Prime. It's significantly taller, and almost twice as wide.

    What the heck, I'll get Classics in there. PM is about the same width, little shorter (minus the wind vane) and maybe 2/3rds as long. It's closer to Classics Prime than a Legends in both absolute and relative terms. Given that people are only expecting a Deluxe, that seems plenty large enough.

    Yeah, was definitely thinking deluxe, not legends. My bad. But check the width front to back between the two. Classics is double. And wider. And taller. And it's a very small voyager to boot.

    You might have possibly gotten me back on board with it being a CW Magnus and PMOP cab though.

    That would be awesome. I've been wondering how we weren't getting that sooner anyway so if this is the case this is perfect. Bonus points if he also comes for CW Ultra Magnus and the rumored Powered convoy repaint of TR PM Optimus as well. Good also for Super Ginrai from Takara.

    X2 Toys would have my attention if they would make new feet with ankle tilt for TR Pmop.

    I'm astounded they haven't made it yet, given the fact they did CW Magnus' new feet.

    Hope we'll get more news of this soon because I REALLY want a confirmation about this being made to be the replacement transforming cab for both TR PM Optimus/Takara Legends Super Ginrai and CW Ultra Magnus. So far there are good hints of it being possible but still.
