The head can rotate on Rumble though?
Yup.

To be fair, he does remind me of the TF watches of yesteryear. Honestly, that's a positive for me.

Hot pink neon Rung is pretty darn cool. Was hoping for Gnur, but this is fine too.

How are they hacks? Just because your not a fan of them doesn't mean that they are that.

The toys aren't even for us, why would they make drastically different looking decos not based on the show?

Wow, that looks real bad, like real bad; like why the hype? why the secrecy? so rungs red, they could have kept him secret? only reason I could think of is that they knew this thing was trash and didn't want anyone to know what it looked like until the credit cards were charged >:oP

I'm just waiting for the fandom to once again inevitably split as the Netflix show turn out to be **** awful and Rooster Teeth start spasming out and attacking the fanbase for not liking it, given their track record.

Okay, I'll be in the minority again. I like the Netflix Magnus. The inner robot doesn't look so bland any more, he has some color, some life. The only thing they should have not done is dirty up his shoulders. Those are iconic to that character, and making them black just doesn't work.

I think a lot of disdain comes from the fact that it was kept complete secret, and maybe some people expected better extras. Yeah, the jolly rancher rung is a big letdown to some, but to me rung wasn't a big deal in the first place. It felt like the designers were trying to appease the IDW fans, and it came off bad. If they wanted to do it right, he should have been a deluxe.

Anyway, if I hadn't bought a Magnus already, I would definitely pick this up. As a matter of fact, if someone wants to trade 1 for the other, PM me and we'll work something out.

I can't believe that made it past Hasbro's QC people. Whether because they didn't pay enough attention, or thought it wouldn't be too noticeable, that's a big oopsie. Because those definitely look like middle fingers. :lol:

I don't dislike the Netflix Magnus, just don't see enough to make me buy him again. And I really want that Rung. But right now money is tough, buying TP on the streets lmao.

The molding up close doesn't look that way at all, just that one picture. Mostly it just looks weird, but it is fun to attach the pew pew effects to.

As somebody whose spent a large chunk of their life following rvb and other projects, I have heard literally nothing about this and angry comments on their videos would be prime real estate to learn such things; I feel like he's just here to start a flame war over it, but this isn't the thread for that.

Anyway, I'm glad there are people that like this figure, I agree that a lot of the dislike is likely coming from the fact that hasbro hyped it up with the 'secrecy' gimmick and the spoiler tag line, with it ending up being just 'extra battle-damaged' magnus :HEADHURTS:

Yeah, that's why I said I wouldn't buy him again, but I would gladly trade this for the earlier one. I like how this one looks, except for the shoulders. But it is disappointing it wasn't a new deco entirely.

As for Rumble, I would like to see someone take a frontal pic of him holding both his hands up, to see whether he really is going all 'Stone Cold' or not. :lol:

Do you mean just the prominently featured few, or all of them? Because there are like 5 or 6 'cons on there as well...

Oh god don't say that, now you're making me want Hasbro to make it.

Of course, it would require a new Hot Rod/Rodimus, Kup, Blurr, Wreck-Gar, Cyclonus, and Galvatron, but I think at least 75% of that is coming in the next year or two anyway, so...
G2/Action Master/obscure variant-inspired redecos and retools are my lifeblood

Looking for:
- the Headmaster head for Legends LG56 Perceptor, LG59 Blitzwing, LG22 Skullcruncher, or LG30 Weirdwolf
- Unite Warriors Computron's Lightspeed
- Combiner Wars Air Raid
- rifle and shoulder guns from Siege Bluestreak
- rifle from Siege Red Alert
