Can't have too many insecticons. They are a plague. And that Magnus is pretty great for the character. Didn't work as well for prime.
Oh, both are fantastic. No question.
But FP matches his other two brethren (if there were all three Insecticons .... I'd have a tougher choice). Plus FP is closer to the old G1 look that I like.
As for Magnus, people who couldn't afford City Commander finally have a great alternative. I mean, he looks sweet. BUT CC is pretty much everything I've ever wanted in Magnus. White Prime? Check. Armor donning? Check. Badass? Double check. Plus I sprung for the iGear, Perfect Effect and (just two days ago) Dr. Wu upgrade sets. A new Magnus would have to be made of platinum to get me to switch it out at this point.
But I'm still down for getting both. Make no mistake, I'm not knocking the official stuff here.
