    I've finally gotten around to buying an Ultra Magnus, so I head to Walmart. I picked up the figure and was about to walk out of the toy isle when I notice that where the toy should be white, he's more of sky blue tinge. So I put the thing back on the shelf and head to target.

    and then Toys R Us.

    same story at both places. Blue and sky blue instead of blue and white

    I would like to know if that light-blue-color-where-it-should-be-white is the norm or if southwestern missouri has just been getting coloring duds.

    From what I can tell, and have seen, all of them have been like that.

    Would have looked better if he was actually white, imo. Would be cool to see them make a Voyager class toy of his Cybertronian design, and give that one the proper color scheme. Extremely doubtful, but one can dream. Though it has a better chance of happening than a toy of Highbrow does.

    Edit: As for show accuracy, I admit that there may be a slight blueish tinge to the "white" on Ultra Magnus, but the toy's color took it a bit too far, imo.

    It's the real deal. First official photoshopped pics made it look white, but it's actually blueish. (Unfortunately, I would have preferred white myself, think it looks better, this blue seems a tad too dark).

    Still a great figure, so get it! :)

    Ultra Magnus was never white, he's truly blue with light light blue.


    Just like in the show too.

    I really, really like this bot. He's just fun to transform and has that transforming sound while you're in the process of transforming him.

    ....

    .... I have never used the word transform(ing) in the same sentence so many times...

    too bad he doesn't have his molded in shoulder cannons like in TransWarped.
