I never used to own the first Ultra Magus, had the cab, aye, but never the full toy. So getting this one was an easy choice, wanted the Omega Prime mode, plus I love the idea of a car carrier since I'm up to 36 Transformers and nowhere to store them. So review time-
Vehicle mode: Mmmmmmm, I love this mode. The cab is amazing, it looks so solid and I've used it to send Mega-Otane flying back a few times by ramming Magus in hard, it's fun. Just love those angles, wow.
Robot mode: Nice, but why did the back pack, I call it a back pack, have to be so heavy? It's really hard to pose Magus and get him to stand right without the pack making him fall backwards, plus that gun of his is a pain in the rare end, really hard to get it to stay on and just makes him heavy and unbalanced, dang.
I love the vehicle mode of Magus, just love it! It's so solid looking and the added bonus of holding three deluxe Transformers is great, but why is the robot mode so unstable? Maybe a rethink if he gets a new look, hope so as this is one great truck to play with.
