XM & Legendary Beasts Studios 1:3 Magneto



I don't get Satellite base, seems like a very random object unless I'm missing a story arc involving one.

Are they trying to tie it to Asteroid M in some way? That's all I can think of. There is a famous shot of him in space with space debris. Problem is they couldn't use that same pose because they did for their White Magneto.

I would have much preferred a less busy base and more of a museum pose.

Also, they need to fix that buckle on the front. It's floating there which is not the point of the buckle.

overall nice looking statue, the anatomy looks great but it just doesnt make any sense to me. pretty rare for people to look that shredded without wearing clothes and here hes supposed to be wearing some kind of suit. i know i know - fantasy comic book statue - but ive always been in the camp these large scale statues should appear realistic. some muscle definition is expected, this is a little overkill imo but i suppose thats a minor nitpick

And can we get rid of the super exaggerate, teeth grinding face? Magneto can rip apart most things with little efforts. A satellite as this base implies is weak sauce for him.

This statue isn't doing anything for me and really needs to be looked at again at the design stage. Captain America and Thor are amazing and people are champing at the bit to order...Magneto is just not to that level.

There is some strange vertical striping on the torso of the suit. And why is the cape bunch up under the metal collar? The incorrect cape attachment is the same ridiculous mistake SS made. What’s so hard about the upper body of Magneto to get correct?

I’m happy there are fans of this statue. I’m just not understanding what you love about it. More so when you see the other two 1:3 being total aces. Help me see what you see
