    I've recently started collecting Ultra Magnus figures and I'd like to hear some opinions on which UM they think is the best.

    He's got a point there, I think this thread's been won. I've already got G1 and classics(can't wait for the upgrade kit) and plan on getting the others listed here.

    Yeah,but he said he started collecting Ultra Magnus figures. Even though that MP custom is awesome it's not like you can actually buy one of those.

    I love G1 & RID. But my favorite is the Diaclone Powered Convoy (G1 movie preview).

    Damn, that is SHARP! Nicely done!


    Gotta agree with you on that one. Everyone I've seen is WAAYYY outta my price range though.
    ... And it has to be my favorite Diaclone commercial.

    Yes you can buy it but it costs $700. I can't afford that....But God I wish I could! I keep holding out a slight hope for a $300 dollar one from Takara. Similar to the Prime with trailer MP04

    I second that :) . (but at all cost get the G1 UM first b'coz dat's the one dat started it all)

    If you can afford it by all means get Anemis upgrade kit for MP-2 UM but that thing is gonna cost u a bomb.

    I really wish Hasbro had done it that way. The way the mold transforms easily lends itself to being able to be white in vehicle mode while hiding those colors. They probably wouldnt have remolded the head, but I could overlook a white Prime head if the rest was colored so well

    I love the one VP did to win the Vector contest. It incorporates parts from RID, Energon, and Cybertron to make a great G1 UM.

    g1=brick
    RiD=brick
    that custome=epic victory.

    the only problem i have with RiD UM is his alt mode. i cannot for the life of me keep his trailer attached to the truck. right now i have the 2 sections intimately close so it looks like he is attached. just don't move him.

    any pics of that powered UM? gotta see what a grand will get me...

    We'll probably see our first glimpse of the best(official) Ultra Magnus at botcon.
