Magnus

I'm not sure what you mean about Pat Lee maybe I'm out of the loop? But I've read some of the new G1 comics, some are every good for us older fans. I like this Revotech toy. Why does a robot who's body is basically and exoskeleton need armor anyway, just a though. Ask Pat Lee right.

Pat Lee didn't invent the armor,it's on the original toy!

Anyway,I don't really know the whole scoop but suposedly before Lee shut down his comic company,he stiffed a bunch of writers and artists using the excuse that he didn't have any money to give them,but in actuality he pocketed a great deal of money.
That's the story that's gone around,I'm not saying I can prove it or disprove it,I'm just telling you what's out there.

You sure...

This toy I thought was an original Diaclone toy (pre-Transformers) if I have that right? So wouldn't that mean it was created back in the early eights even before Transformers the movie?

True enough, Ultra Magnus is no one else than recolored Powered Convoy from Diaclone, his armour colors are reflected on the Fansproject Powered Commander armour.

Was the blurb on the main page made in sarcasm? Because as of fairly recently, a white redeco of an Optimus Prime toy to make Ultra Magnus has been pretty common.. Off the top of my head I can think of Masterpiece and Classics.

Nope, it wasn't. I agree

Nope, it wasn't. I agree about MP and Classics and would probably add War Within Titanium to the list, but I guess that's all for the G1 Persona. There are countles other toys named UM and resemble him in naked mode, but none of them represent the original character that I'm refferring to here.

Wow, I had no idea Dreamwave had imploded. I personally thought Lee's version of the TF's was the pinnacle of how the G1 robots could look. I no longer collect comics, so I didn't follow his books, but I picked up a poster or two. I never realized people disliked his art. Hmmm.

Magnus looks good. I just can't help thinking of him as "variant Optimus". LOL. My Magnus is the big, clunky car carrier...who said "damnit" on the big screen. ^_^

Yeah,I felt the same way until I got a little more immersed in the online "community" and it turns out a lot of people think he sucks.
