His candy cane truck schlong is certainly interesting.
I expect the mold will be used for something else, and then I might pick it
I really wish it came in Christmas, Hanukkah and Kwanza variations. I would
pick up one of each then. But, just Christmas? Eh, I don’t know.

He’s missing Ga’mede, and I honestly like the G1 Perceptor mold more than
the Studio Series. This looks good, and is a bit more posable, but there’s
still going to be the hole in his back.
I’ll have to see how Studio Series Perceptor works with Ga’mede. Get them
both out, check scale, interop, etc., before pulling the trigger. I’m
rapidly running out of space though. But I might play with Studio Series
and just decide it’s a fun toy, now that I’ve had my initial disappointment
with it and let that run its course.
Still, weird to have just Magnificus.
If they cobbled together a Ga’mede from GI Joe parts, I would be more
interested. (To get the slender physique and delicate face of Ga’mede, I
think it might be best to remold Lady Jaye with a flat chest, and go from
there… which I guess might make Gammy a trans man, but whatever). Assuming
that a GI Joe figure is the right scale for Magnificus’ cannon mode.
