its not that hard to take a decent high quality picture - flash off - decent light source - macro on - steady focus on
from what i can see of these pics henkei magnus just looks terrible. He looks like some kinda KO the factory couldnt be arsed to finish adding the final paint applications to
The figure is just TOO white and looks unfinished. The classics version just looks miles better than the late henkei version. The white legs the completely white arms...it just looks unfinished. Only thing the henkei one has over the classics one is the blue face plate but again you can fix this yourself by getting the FP city commander stickers from reprolabels
the henkei 1 is way way to late and just doesnt look that good. I cant justify spending cash on this when theres far far superior 3rd party stuff coming out like the ko shadow scythe kit or the new insecticons etc
How about this for justification?
In the Dreamwave G1 continuity, Ultra Magnus shed his armor and looked like a G1 version of this figure. The second Masterpiece figure was a G1 version of this character. In the Binaltech/Alternity version of G1, he also shed his armor in order to use the Matrix of Leadership prior to defeating Unicron... And he also looked like the G1 version of this.
The Alternity version (sold at the Transformers China Carnival, and also by e-HOBBY) was this color scheme. As was the Revoltech variant of Convoy, which was based on the Dreamwave version, was this same color scheme. And all because... You guessed it... The robot that resides underneath the armor is that color scheme.
Here is an example on what I am talking about:
But yeah... If that is not convincing enough, consider the fact that this could result in the making of a new "City Commander" armor set for this figure. I know that there are others out there that are.
