    Came upon this when I was googling images of truck cabs... probably the coolest looking truck cab that I have ever seen.

    If, for some reason, Bay decided to bring Ultra Magnus into that movieverse of his and, though I doubt it, he chose to make him a white "clone/redeco" of Optimus, I think that this truck would be a really neat alt mode for him.

    Again, I seriously doubt that he'd use the character, it just doesn't seem like he would, and even if he did, he'd probably make him into some sort of multi-wheeled missile platform, like Animated's Ultra Magnus, rather than a car carrier since that'd give him an excuse to blow more shit up.

    Thoughts? Suggestions?

    Ultra Magnus has always been a Prime repaint, it's just during G1 we only ever saw him combined with the car carrier, and I hope this approach is done with Magnus if we see him in the third film, since the transformation/combination will be very cool.

    Oh jeez....that cab looks terrible...I hope to hell if Ultra Magnus comes into the movie-verse he has more common sense then to scan that waste of scrap.

    That has to be the ugliest reject from the hot wheels factory I've ever seen. Yes to Ultra Magnus. No to that

    So would Animated and Energon Magnus.

    Also, that cab looks like a truck and an accordion made sweet sweet love and birthed an abomination mix breed.

    D'OH!

    Didnt Homer Simpson bankrupt his half-brother's car company for designing something like this?

    What if he was a Japanese Dekotora style of truck, like in RiD, only blinged out?

    Oh yee if we doin da defending of big blue lets not also forget Spychanger RID Ultra Magnus, Robot Heroes Ultra Magnus, Titanium Ultra Magnus, Takara SCF Ultra Magnus, and Heroes of Cybertron Ultra Magnus...all Ultra Magni that aren't white Prime repaints....hell if you want to include busts there's another 3 where that came from.

    If we're looking for how many different versions of Magnus (white prime) there are by my count...6....7 if you want to count the Sports Label

    Ummm no....I mean I don't mind change (ie different alt modes) but his name is Ultra Magnus not Ultra Fa.....nevermind....

    Don't like that cab design....but if you painted it red, it'd very closely resemble Animated Optimus' cybertronian alt mode.

    Be interesting to see Ultra Magnus as Prime's "clone" in the Movie-verse, but I'd pick a way better semi-truck than that.

    Or even better, have Nemesis Prime show up as Prime's clone.

    It kinda reminds me of a mix between a truck and one of the Railracer trains. I think a toy of it would be neat.

    Yeah, I actually think the cab's cool. I'd buy a toy of that, the transformation would be interesting.

    I like that truck, but it doesn't say "Ultra Magnus" to me.

    I'd like a white/blue vesion of Optimus' kind of truck, but with a combining trailer/wuthever that it carries.

    This. I love ugly cars and trucks. They have so much "nobody loves me :( " charm.

    It looks like the Jetson's car landed on top of a big rig.
