    My TRU still has several Animated Ultra Magnus figures and I'm thinking about picking one up. What do you guys think of him now that he's been out for a while? It's still at full price so I really only want to get it if it's absolutely worth it.

    (I suddenly found myself disinterested in ROTF now that Animated is disappearing from shelves so I'm kind of scrambling to get the last of the good Animated figures before they're gone for good.)

    He is a hell of alot of fun!!!! The most important thing i can say is Guns inside his Guns. My only complaints about him are his weird shoulder articulation and the hammer is too short but these are very minor nitpicks. Loved him so much i bought the repaint too

    My personal favorite of the three Animated Leader figs, and my second fav of the whole line. My first being Deluxe Prowl.

    The shoulders don't bother me.

    The shoulders are weird, but Ultra Magnus is loads of fun. He's got a cool transformation, for one. And, lest we forget, GUNS INSIDE GUNS.

    Definitely one of the best Leader Class figures in TF history, and probably the best Ultra Magnus ever. He's my second-favorite of the entire Animated line (Deluxe Jazz being the first).

    Amazing figure, probably the best of the line and one of the best toys we've gotten in years.

    One of the best leader class toys ever made, never mind in Animated.

    Get him if you can.

    I got mine when there was sale for half off leader class figures at TRU in Cerritos. I really like his facial expressions, and how the eybrows move when you push the button. I personally like leaderclass bulkhead a little but more, but I definitely was glad I got him.

    He also looks good with Classics figures if you (like me) weren't quick on the draw to pick up the one with Skywarp. Great figure!

    Totally Agree....

    This is one of the best figures of Ultra Magnus I've ever owned and yes,if you have the chance to buy it,get him now because not only is is an EXCELLENT figure for the reasons already stated but I gaurantee by this Xmas its going to go for at least $100.00 or more on e-pay or other TF websites.

    The animated leaders are now half price this week at TRU, and Ultra Magnus is a great figure

    Sup dawg, I heard you like guns, so we put guns inside your guns so you can bust caps while you bust caps.

    Pick him up.

    I say go ahead and get him, easily IMO the best leader in animated, the only bad thing as everyone else says is the shoulders.
