That Magnus looks good. The "ears" being separate pieces are odd but understandable.

I'm fine with Magnus being super robot sized because well, he should be. He combines with his trailer just like the Optimus Primes  that get that big. The only thing is I really would like to have had the smaller prime but done like the Perfect Effect figure with the CW/TG Magnus. The armor sets like Classics Fansproject City Commander and the Siege/Kingdom figures are nice but obviously leave a lot to be desired. The CW PE set worked perfectly. Just like Super Ginrai, Star Saber and even Armada Optimus to an extent.  Having the smaller figure be the core of the robot and/or just the arms in some cases works better. Although the way Energon and Cybertron Prime work should also still work as long as they stick to those designs and not do the Galaxy Upgrade Optimus Prime way again for Cybertron Prime.

Okay so it might be a little difficult to make a separate cab that can still transform into a robot mode. There's quite a bit going on there.

Those shoulder flaps are just one flap too wide. Had they extended the first flap before the hinge and then had a hinge similar to the one Beast Machines/Universe Skydive has at his shoulders then it could maybe have sucked the shoulders in by one stack. 

I just finally found a RotB voyager Rhinox yesterday in the wild (but not Prime or Primal) and his shoulders are too close to the body. SS86 Magnus' shoulders are too far from the body. I guess the two counterbalance each other or something lol. I also got SS Rhinox as well. Rhinox is getting a lot of love lately. I should get out Kingdom Rhinox and T30 Rhinox to have a voyager Rhinox Party.

Now I understand the upgrade kit for RotB voyager Rhinox and the shoulder extenders though. I'll probably be getting it as I think it's really necessary. Shame the shoulders would still be too close once the Chainguns of Doom are being held but it is what it is. I just don't know if I want the hammer and new head though. The set is so much cheaper without them. They're charging $19 for just the head by itself. That's crazy stupid. The shoulder and filler kit is almost $20 and the hammer is $14 but all the sets together are $40. I like how the hammer kind of fills in the belly but I don't think it and the head are worth another $20 more than just the shoulder and filler kit. Yeah I think I'll just get the filler kit. This way RotB Rhinox can have the Chainguns of Doom and SS Rhinox can have the hammer. He'll be the odd one out though since the other two Rhinox also have Chaniguns of Doom. Maybe I'll give SS Rhinox the two Battlemaster Rhinox figures (retail and the one that comes with Wheeljack) to make up for it.

It started with SS86 Ultra Magnus and ended with a Rhinox party. That's just how it be sometimes. You just have to SHRUG it off.


Do you get it?

Because you use your shoulders to shrug.

That was how I went from Magnus to Rhinox.

The shoulders.

You get it right?

I'm sure you do.

You have to now right?

I mean I just explained the joke.

So you must get it now.

Yeah you get it.
