i was just about to make a comment about the waist. it made a big difference. my only advice is to add a blue strip across the top of the boot. it'll break up the white of the leg with the front of the boot. if you do that, you won't need to do anything else imop.

This looks ace, I second the commet on something to break the white of the legs, but it does look v cool. It is a shame it doesn't transform but its a really nice mix of styles that work well

As much as it pains me to suggest this i think some Gundam Front leg flaps would help the look if him. Most ARMOURED Bots dont walk around with their hips joints exposed and unpretected.

And by add a waist I mean ADD one, his torsos length is too short that or his arms ar too long, He's kinda suffering from "Truck NOT Munky!!" Syndrome.

Nice improvements with the waist painted and hip flaps and narrower shoulders and filled in lower-legs.

but his legs were too short before. the under-side of the groin is supposed to be about halfway from the floor to the top of the head. (optional, but usually not counting "helmets") it's usually a good idea to make the legs at LEAST as tall as the top half of the figure. taller if you want it more heroic. shorter if you want it more squat and dwarf-like.

also, the reason his hip joints look "exposed", is because they're round. If they were flat in the front, it would look more normal. Those thighs are just too rounded. even the tapering towards the knees looks too smooth and organic.

I think adding to this is his shoulders being lower than they were before. (which I mentioned already) the wrists are supposed to be at groin height.
looking at least at the movie, Magnus doesn't have anything to split up the white between his upper and lower legs. he also doesn't have red on the inside of his lower legs. *shrug* I do sorta like the cartoon adaptation of his chest design though.

Now send it to Hasbro and tell them to make it transform! :lol:

Oh, and cut about a centimeter out of the shoulder stacks.
