Well, that comparison shot with 2006 Classics Optimus Prime makes it pretty definitive. Hasbro's SW Ultra Magnus has a much lighter blue, which matches the IDW comic coloring pretty well. I still like Takara's apparently darker, deeper blue much more. From the pics, it looks like disassembling the leg assemblies at the knees might be possible. Although the insides of the joints look like pegs, the outsides look like they're sporting screw holes. I'm thinking it's a long screw with a grove near the head and a smooth body below (or perhaps all the way down) holding the legs together at the knees. I think the shin pieces are held on with double friction joints right above the feet. That should be easy to swap. If the shoulder assemblies are screwed together, it should be a simple matter to swap the stacks. I'm planning a kitbash of the Takara version to give it the white thighs and shoulder stacks and knees without the yellow detailing of the Hasbro version to create a "nearly" perfect cartoon G1 colors Ultra Magnus (yet obviously with the IDW design for the mold). I could swap the corresponding parts from the Takara version back over to the Hasbro version for an IDW detailed Magnus that also has the right color of blue to match the comic prints.

Compare to the Takara version, This Um look terribly underpainted. It's really not like Hasbro Megatron VS Takara Megatron! For some oddball reasons, Hasbro was the more colored version there.

Still, That mold look FANTASTIC, with a solid bot mode. The vehicle is not too shabby, but it's clear Magnus was designed as a robot first. Waiting until sepetember/october to get my Takara UM will be a long wait, but will totally be worth it.

Important question answered. He can hold deluxe cars in his trailer. I'd imagine you could fit legends cars on there too but we'll find out.

That's some awfully nice metallic swirl in that blue.

Well first it's because that's how Magnus's alt mode looks in the comics, but also it's designed to be gigantic. The windshield slits are meant to be as big as normal windshields, if that puts the rest of the truck in perspective. Note the tiny doors.

Personally I am stoked for this guy. He looks fantastic, and I admire that they put all that detail inside the cab, based on the artwork. I bet it'll look better if someone paints it.

Wow. The hollowness is stunning. I was stoked, but that is instantly been reduced to: 'Hey, let's wait what Takara has to offer in future pics'. I like the hammer, though. Nice touch.

UM is looking awesome. Bot mode is scaled great. Alt mode does seem a little smaller than I expected. Super excited for this guy.

That cab seems to be made up of two hinged panels. I hope some third party company makes new panels for a more traditional cab appearance. Then this Magnus will be perfect.

I'm still stoked, but I agree that he's super hollow. Then again, he has to be to hold cars in vehicle mode.

The biggest turn off for me is that the truck cab is smaller than Optimus from 2006. But that's a pretty minor gripe IMO. his back kibble could use a touch up as well.

But doesn't that mean he's out of scale with the other toys? The cars he's carrying would have to be tiny in comparison.

Say for instance the cars being the scale of Minimus Ambus' alt mode?

The colours make a big difference but there isnt that much new in terms of paint apps, just some yellow here and there.

The big difference for me is that I know alpha trion more than minimus ambus. But alpha trion riding magnus isnt anywhere in the fiction, so I am having a hard time coming up with what I want out of this toy.

This isn't the double you're looking for. You can go about your business. Move along.

More blue on the trailer works like a charm and the red looks verrrrrry nice. I'm holding off untill I see some in-hand pics of Takara Magnus. I want to know if he looks just as nice as the official pictures. And since I don't read the IDW comics, Minimus Ambus doesn't mean a single thing to me. There's at least a GEEWUN connection in Takara's version and that (drumroll) I can deal with.

Vehicle mode on the Takara version looks better, but I've always preferred white thighs if you know what I mean. :lol: 8-} :P

Alt mode looks small, but he's definitely growing on me. Still think I might go for the Takara flavor though.
