The hand of Ga'mede, perhaps?

Looks like a monkey's hand to me.

Another guess as to the identity of the hand is:



The gorilla one, that is.

Awhile back, Hydra mentioned doing something with Magnificus and the unreleased Double Pretenders gorilla in this comic. Sure, yeah, he did say that in April 1st, but... not everyone was joking around that day, so... yeah, maybe.

There also exists a black version of the figure:

Could the hand be Beast Wars Prime?

I like e-Hobby exclusives but this may the be the first one I pass on. Not sure if I am feeling the design.

e-Hobby has tweeted a couple of new in-hand images of their upcoming exclusive Magnificus. They've also updated his profile on their website with a color version of the previously revealed comic cover and his bio.

[quote]Once Military Affairs Advisor for Mebion, Magnificus was betrayed by an unknown comrade and banished to frontier space. Forced to serve as a gun-for-hire, he has spent long years on the run from bounty hunters with his comrade-in-arms, Gamede. But the pair has finally found a means to achieve their revenge: body data stolen from Perceptor using Gamede's ability to shrink to atomic size! Redesigning his body using this data, Magnificus has successfully mastered the art of "Psychometry", which is the ability to see residual images by scanning objects and other lifeforms. Can Magnificus master this ability and use it to determine the identity of his betrayer?

Wow, that looks fantastic! Too bad the price is way out of my range. Just can't justify that for a deluxe, especially for a character I don't really know, but man it does look really awesome :D

Pretty sweet, but I'm not willing to pay the $90 plus shipping the club will charge for this. Frankly, I'd rather just import the eHobby version and save myself some cash...

Hm, well...

Nah, I'll pass.

I'd have bought it for $60. Sure as hell not buying one deluxe for $90 + shipping.
