The Energon one is crazy money you say? I like him with my AEC cast (need to pick up a Bulkhead at some point to be my Springer) but he's not 100% there for Classics. He's a nice placeholder, but I personally could do with a better likeness to G1.
The Titanium one is sort of good. Shame he's so white, and the blue isn't really blue. That puts me off. I like how they made it all one thing though, no partsforming, is there?
Here let me put you off of that horrible toy:
If that's not enough, his knees bend the wrong way, his arms pop off just from being looked at funny.
Plus it's super rare and therefore super expensive, getting a Classics Ultra Magnus and genuine City Commander with upgrade pack is cheaper especially considering what the tits version offers compared to CC.
And the sad thing is, It's such a simple fix. Just place the head farther back, paint it a darker blue, and bring in some more red. Done. But they royally screwed up, and it's super expensive to boot!
My Vote STILL goes to RID Ultra Magnus.
oh yeah, RID Magnus lights up and says like, I think 5 phrases, 3 of wich are only unlocked if all the right tabs are pressed, I.E if he's combined with optimus plus four different firing sounds? and his carrier mode fits up to four deluxe car/truck figures. With a few acceptions, he can fit almost every deluxe car and truck in his trailer from the actual RID show, straight down to classics, even RTS figures. He's simply put, the best magnus. Giant legs and all.
