Third party company Newage Toys have shared images of the color prototype of their H28G Lucullu (Legends Scale Delta Magnus/Shattered Glass Ultra Magnus) via their Weibo account.
This is a very nice redeco of H27W Conquest (Legends Scale G1 Ultra Magnus) in Diaclone-inspired red and blue deco. The figure is also a homage of Shattered Glass Ultra Magnus thanks to the inclusion of a skull face, remolded shoulder missiles and a new sword. We are sure your optics will be pleased with these promotional images.
we still have no concrete information about price or release date, but stay tuned with TFW2005 for more updates. Now click on the bar to see the mirrored images on this news post and then share your impressions on the 2005 Boards!
One of us! One of us!
The back part of the panel should keep it secure enough. The front part "peg" is more just a kind of guide and doesn't connect securely into the foot. As long as nothing is flopping around loose, it should be fine.
Quick question, after transforming to bot mode, I feel like foot part is missing something. I see the back of white foot can peg into the blue panel but towards the front of the white foot near the toe theres another peg that doesn't go anywhere. Does the blue panel just flap over like that? Doesn't seem secure on that part of the foot unless I'm missing something. Thought to ask on here.

Really happy to have this guy, Newage is killing it with these pieces. I started with the Toon and Toy version of Grimlock and then Jetfire and now I'm sucked in the rabbit hole for Newage Legend figures lol

OMG that's so neat! Thanks for sharing. Proto Piss Magnus must smell like a public bathroom lol. I think I prefer the darker proto Straxus over what we got; that deeper blue's quite pretty.
My mind went to the same place lol.
Huh, folks have speculated (and I think NA even stated) that NA touches up their promo shots, so that they look different from the actual product we get in our hands, but these prototypes are a clear indication that it's not just changing the color balance of the photos or whatever; the actual prototypes have different color paint, too. Would be interesting to see the prototypes for G2 and SG Grimlock, since there was a lot of disappointment with the retail product's colors being very different from the colors in the promo shots.
Prototype Piss Magnus needs to drink more water!
Cool stuff, thanks for sharing. I too was wondering if the prototype has the glow.
So cool. Does the magnus armor glow like the production versions?
Super cool stuff. I think I actually prefer the prototype colors for all three! Especially Elita-1.
very cool, thx for sharing! i'm glad they went lighter yellow for the shinning armour. but i quite like the darker blue on straxus.
Hey guys I have something interesting to show you: the prototype of Shinning Magnus (and was probably used to take product shots).
He comes in a bag, and has a written "Time of Great Sorrow", which is a line from the Marvel adaptation of TFTM, and it is exactly where this version came from.
Unlike the actual product, the prototype is looser, just like the toon version.

Robot mode, and it is deeper in color compared with its mass produced counterpart.
Also, proof that it is a prototype: the missile launchers are the same type as H28G and the product shots.

I do not know if you can see from my pic, but while the translucent parts are deeper, the painted yellow parts are actually lighter in color.

And pay attention to their toes. The prototype's toes have red above yellow (same as the product shots), and the actual product's toes are the opposite, which is more G1 toy accurate.

Then the screws on their thighs.
Left (actual product): flat screws
Right (prototype): round screws
You can also see that the protype's yellow paint is lighter, evn lighter than the nylon parts on the top of the cab.

Kept in the box. I will probably never open it again.

Also I have 2 other prototypes: Elita-1 and Straxus.
View attachment 29838872
Straxus is deeper than the actual product. Yeah he has a quote, too.

Then Elita-1's quote. She has no lipstick applied, just as in the product shots.
In hand, it is really the actual product that looks nicer.

Yes, I have bought a ton of stuff from baba. ebay seller but they have an actual site
Terry's has it as well.
【IN STOCK】NewAge Toys H28EXR Shinning Magnus
i don’t know that seller, are they trustworthy?
Baba's still got him. Newage NA H28EXR RHODES Shining Magnus mini Robot action figure toy In stock
Where is he easy to find?
Glowing Piss Magnus? Still not very hard to find. It's Shattered Delta Magnus that's worth "killing" for.
I like him too! <—
god i would kill for that deco
Finally got my EX. In short: I love it. Blows away MS's armor version on several fronts.
I mean, Has Magnus EVER had this much fun?
"IT'S COMIN' RIGHT FOR US!"

He also sometimes- SOMETIMES, feels the uncontrollable urge to just do the pelvic thrust OF DOOM
"WOOOO HOOOOIIIE!!!"… Or, something similar
View attachment 29827696
…I dunno, maybe he's been listening to Deathklok again. Optimus can't stand it.
But Octavian really does fit in wonderfully with the rest of my Magnuses. While the MFT up-size of the original MS design will remain with my Season3 Shelf, this guy is a GREAT pickup for my collection of my favorite Autobot.
Here's my attempt to get the boxart pose:

To the Shelf, where hopefully he'll tide me over until Gears and Windcharger happen…
LOVE this guy!

Love the EX versions. Every NA I've gotten I have the EX (except Galvatron, but I have the M version of that one, which is really the EX, because its like why is a giant rubber ball from some weird Japanese cartoon storyline on what they called the EX???)
