    There has been rumor for a while that CHMS (the makers of KO Seekers and Arcee) have been moving into designing original molds. Well, here are a couple pictures they released of one of their upcoming designs. It's an original Ultra Magnus with trailer. They said the cab-robot is the size of a Classic Voyager Optimus Prime.

    Not bad! I may still like CC a little better, but can't wait to see what the final product will look like!

    Looks good, but I still want a Classics Ultra Magnus and the CC Armor.

    Looks good. Except the face looks STUPID! City Commander still wins for now.

    That head needs some work, as it's hard to tell if his mouth is closed or if he's yodeling. Either way, that chin is comically huge, like if Animated were transferred to Classics but kept the huge chins.

    The rest of it looks fine, though the proportions when armored up look a bit off, but that's really an inherent problem with Ultra Magnus remakes, I suppose.

    I'm wondering about the price though. CHMS make deluxes for about $30 each? This thing is much bigger, and original, but if they can keep it under $90 I'm interested.

    I agree on the face needing work but this has real potential.

    I think it's the chin throwing me off.

    The alt mode Really looks good. If the truck is the same size as classics op truck mode, this would look good next to op with G3 trailer.

    Looks pretty good. Other than the face and chin, I like the rest of it. I'd be interested in this if the price is reasonable. For now, though, I'll stick with City Commander.

    This'll be way too expensive, besides FP's City Commander already has a permanent place on my shelf.

    Not bad actually, but until I get a MP sized UM, my City Commander will be the only Ultra Magnus I'll need/want
