I always have to laugh when I read you guys rave about the MaxiLite. It's so old-school.
I have 2 and use them but seldom as a key light. It's just a deep 16" reflector that creates specular highlights.
The shots above could have been done with a Speedotron 20" reflector or a Profoto Magnum and you wouldn't know the difference. I shoot with all of them, I'm speaking from experience.
Not criticizing your taste, so please don't take offense. But if you take a look back at hollywood shots from the '30s and '40s and you'll find a lot of the same look.
I say yes on the profoto magnum making the same light but I dont own profoto
