Edit: A little googling to refresh my memory indicates that indeed, the "proper" fix involves pin removal, which is a huge pain.
OK, now we're talking. There's a pin that needs to be removed. How do you remove? Which pin?
You need something small, strong, thin to just push the pin out. It's hard to do, easy to mess up the figure if you slip, and just all around a hassle, but it can be done.
Which pin? I don't have the figure in front of me and don't exactly remember the details, but I assume one in his arm near the part that needs swapping. Elbow maybe? I dunno look at the arm for a pinned joint.

This is what I found to refresh my memory via google. No idea where I originally got the info years ago when I first fixed the figure.http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/transformers-toy-discussion/185038-deluxe-universe-ultra-magnus-arm-fix.html
The site they link to in that thread is broken it seems, but there is a wayback archive of it herehttp://web.archive.org/web/20080704173423/http://www.capturedprey.com/scripts/magnusfix.asp
