Classics Ultra Magnus Smokestacks/Gun WTF??

Postby Skalor » Fri Feb 02, 2007 9:24 pm

Why are the smokestacks black??? I like the look of the all black gun, but the nasty looking black smokestacks suck. Why couldn't they do the black and silver gun/stacks Prime got. I was totally hyped up to get Magnus, but this sucks.
(Breaking out the airbrush) Here we go again. Anybody get the right one?? Even the pic on the box is right.

I was rather ticked off about that too. Oh well, that's what paint is for. Just like MP Starscream............I will soon paint both Magnus' gun & Classics Megatron good & appropiate colors........

I liked them black to be honest with you. Doesn't bother me one bit

I might try switching guns between Prime and UM. (Prime's gun was originally black anyway, right?)

I switched the guns between the two, and I also switched out the little tabs that hold the guns together so the red one is on the full black gun and the white one is on the other gun.

it looks TONS better

Personally I don't really care what color the smokestacks are I mean the meaning thing is that the character looks good.

Agreed. I don't really see a problem with this.
