Fits in rather well with the "hey, I'm not just a white Prime cab" Magnus in the IDW spotlight...

And here's War Within Magnus...

Who is just a white Prime cab.

I award G1 Magnus with Massive Win.

WW Magnus, in the other hand, is awarded with Epic Fail.

I can't wait. This is probably the only titanium 6" I'm picking up. They look really good, but I had to draw a line and they just don't really fit my collection.

EDIT: G1 Magnus, not the WWI one.

Will forego the dork. I really want a WW OP rather than the white version, but Argos only have Roddy and Soundwave, despite the images in the catalogues.

Next 6" Titaniums I want are TC and The Fallen.

I'm really looking forward to the G1 Magnus if I can find him at a reasonable price.

I ended up picking up the one 6" Titanium my 'local' Argos had on the way to a conference on Friday (excellent use of a voucher given to me by my ex-boss - and only half used with the intro price of 11.24GBP or something of the like). Got Rodimus Prime, and I have been blown away! The failing of the original character was always the toy that went with him (which I had, and hated), but this new version is superb!

Fallen is in the post...

But, yeah, it's a shame about the WW Magnus - even more hideous than most white Prime repaints!

Default G1 Ultra Magnus!

What a success man! This toy looks awesome, can't wait to get him in line with my other Titaniums!

He looks quite a bit different from the version I saw in a posting a few months ago. Different in a good way! I think he looks fantastic, such an execellent homage, here's hoping he ain't too fiddly like some of the other Titaniums.

(I have six of the Titaniums, I really want the Soundwave and Rodimus Prime but I have been having a real hard time finding them.)

I will make it a point to get G1 Magnus; however, I'm going to skip WWI Magnus.

It's nice to once again see Maggy in a mold that is exclusive to him alone, as many could most certainly do without yet another white Prime. It makes such an important character seem generic. Now if he'd only receive a fresh new design rather than rehashing the older, but still good, model.

I dunno. I'm glad they did this version of him. It's about time there was a battle-armored version of him with decent articulation.

Fantastic figure. The mould's only drawback is cleverly photographed out of the way (shoulders are way too back on the main body). Looking forward to this and maybe WW Magnus. He doesn't look that bad.

Has anyone got any pics showing this? I'd like to see the figure's flaws as well as his fabulousness before I decide whether to buy.

There are pics of it in the botcon gallery over at tformers. The prototype pictured had red eyes and somewhat different tones of blue, plus the arms were sort of missasembled. But you can clearly see the "flaw" of the shoulder placement on the body.

EDIT: Nevermind, you can see a full gallery for THIS version right here

The improved picture quality works wonders! Still looks fantastic, and appears to Transform as I had figured from the BotCon photos. I did actually prefer the red eyes of the earlier prototype, but the blue does fit with the film and cartoon, and, of course, his character.

I don't think the set-back shoulders really negatively affects the figure. His arms were set back a bit in the G1 figure (although not quite so far) anyway. Besides, some of us real people have their arms 'set back' a bit (darned barrel chest... ).

He does look great - although I think Rodimus Prime still wins out for me (although the real figure may change my opinion). I reckon it's the lack of a great original Magnus and the central nature of his character that makes this toy so exciting! And with the IDW Spotlight comic as well, Ultra Magnus has never had so much attention!

Cheers! Yeah I see what you mean about the shoulders. Am still planning on getting him though!

WW UM should be renamed into "Ultra Failus"

Yes, I like beating a dead horse. That's the necrophile, zoophile and sadist in me.

Hmmm . . . yeah, the red eyes and darker blue looks a bit sharper, but whatevs. In spite of proportion issues, he looks like he'd be worth picking up. The more I see of Roddy, the more I like him, too. Kinda wish they'd do a highly-articulated battle armored magnus in the main line, since these things are rumored to only be able to take so much play before they loosen up.
