    Firstly, all power to zeroXII for posting the first in-hand pics of City Commander Ultra Magnus. You can view his informative review here: http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/trans...-city-commander-trailer-pictorial-review.html

    I could not stop fiddling with him since I got home and decided to take many pics for your viewing pleasure. Hope you like them.

    Disclaimer: I have got crap lighting in my home and it's night time so please bear with the slight grain. To make things worse, my regular Digicam died on me halfway through the photoshoot and so I had to use my phonecam.

    Without further ado, I give you: CITY COMMANDER ULTRA MAGNUS!

    Front of the box. I think FansProject has got something cooking. Perhaps a whole line of custom add-ons known as the "Parallax" line?

    Back of the box

    If you're under 15, you can't play with this :lol

    Laying it out

    Back of the comic book which also serves as a step-by-step instruction guide. Refer to zeroXII's thread for great pics of each page.

    Decals for the trailer's license plate. I see a nice shout out to California on the 2nd decal on the right column :wink:  Which state does the top left decal come from? And the one at the bottom left is kinda like New York's?

    Bottom of the box.

    [​IMG]
    So was this whole thing good enough for me to defile my MISB UM Vs. Skywarp 2-pack Target Exclusive?

    [​IMG]
    HELL YEAH!

    Front of the trailer.

    Back of the trailer. Obvious crotch is obvious.

    A Prime is fine too.

    [​IMG]
    All the body parts laid out.

    Close-up mugshot.

    [​IMG]
    This is the inside of his Head/Chest piece. The exposed springs :eek:  I hope this toy can stand the test of time.

    Close-up crotchshot :lol

    The BFG.

    Ta-dah.

    Comparison with Classics OP. Okay my bad, I forgot to flip up OP's kneecaps. Don't laugh. :tongue:

    "Magnus, I need you to make a special run to Autobot City on Earth. I also need you to flip up my knees."
    "I can't deal with it now."

    [​IMG]
    Comparison with G1 UM. G1 UM is still taller.

    [​IMG]
    A closer look.

    [​IMG]
    Now hand over those shoulder cannons.

    [​IMG]
    And I'll take that gun too.

    Classics Geewun Ultra Magnus.

    Same shot taken with flash. Just in case the one before was too grainy.

    [​IMG]
    Charge!

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]
    Fully-loaded Ultra Magnus. So I want you to ask yourself, do you feel lucky...?

    [​IMG]
    ... Well, do ya?

    [​IMG]
    Good night, and good luck.

    Hope you guys liked the pics. :)

    I heard his BFG had 2 modes, is this true?

    I need to send my stuff into BBTS soon and get my armor preordered, also need to get a G1 Magnus gun and missiles and launchers. Can the G1 missile launchers attack to his sides in trailer mode or only in bot mode?

    Yes, a Cannon mode and Rocket Launcher mode.



    Top left is my design for Autobot city. :)  The other ones are variants based off it to look like real City license plates. Those were not made by me, so I'm not sure if their based of specific cities.

    My MISB Ultra Magnus vs. Skywarp will also be defiled when I receive this awesome piece. And it will be worth it.

    Hey Solitudinal, just noticed your holding the Rocket Launcher the wrong way. The blue front is suppose to be facing the back, since its in the Rocket Launcher mode. You will also notice the handle part, has an angled cut, thats to fit the arm better when you have it attached the proper way. And to convert to Cannon mode, from Rocket Launcher mode just flip the back, up towards the front. You'll see the hinges on the base, which should help you see which way to flip/rotate. :) 

    Here are pictures showing the two different modes for the gun and how they should look when held.
