    I will find a way to make his hammer lock, no matter what it takes. And that warhead he has is wicked.

    But yeah, I've never had a Magnus, and it's cool that we're getting both him, a Commander and a Deluxe for FOC. Can't wait to see more of this guy and get my hands on him.

    Animated has convinced me of the worth of hammer-wielding Magnuses. And having the Cyberverse one already, I'd like a chance to mess around with a full-sized version. Just gotta find a suitable rubber band for that hammer...

    Ultra Magnus is one of those characters that I simply have to have every figure of, if I can help it. He's been cheated so often in the past by just being an Optimus repaint (original G1 figure included, but at least he had armor), or by getting a crappy toy, so it's great that between Animated and Prime he's getting some respect. Even the FoC is not terrible, given that he got his own head and weapons.

    Considering how much I adore the Prime Cyberverse UMagnus and to me, as of 2012, that mold is probably the most gorgeous of any 4 inch and under class size Ultra Magnus incarnation out there. So just imagine how much I would adore the Voyager size.

    So far, that voyager looks really magnificent, I love:
    1, the robot mode.
    2, the rocket missile at the lower left arm is stupendous!
    3, truck mode with those canon and rocket missile remind me so much of Animated Ultra Magnus.

    My concerns:
    1, Let hope his shoulder and elbow joint are strong enough to support the huge hammer.
    2, In truck mode, I hope the top rear of the trailer is covered up and not expose half of the lower body like his Cyberverse counterpart.

    So looking forward to both Prime and FOC incarnations of Ultra Magnus, still keeping an eye out for the cyberverse version.

    You know if Hasbro and/or a customizer remolded/retooled the Prime Ultra MAgnus figure it can make for a pretty good Sentinel Prime toy based off either his DOTM or WFC version.

    ^ Agreed, but I think a mold with such potential for being fantastic must belong to someone slightly more iconic and deserving.
    oh, and: Cantwait.

    Hoping the Voyager turns out well, and that the character turns up in Prime and makes things difficult for Optimus.

    I hope he will be in Prime as the Leader of the Wreckers.
    That would be awesome.

    Considering how closely Prime has been following the canon of the novels (where the idea of Magnus as the leader of the Wreckers originated) so far, I think it's pretty much a given that that'll be his position on the show. I'd love to see how Bulkhead and Wheeljack react to him being around, especially if Mr. Question-Authority decides he's more interested in following his old boss than his new one.

    Probably not getting the Voyager, but I'm definitely getting the Cyberverse and the Deluxe.

    I don't really care for Voyagers, even though he looks pretty awesome. But I think between the Cyberverse and the Deluxe I'll have all my bases covered.

    Especially given rising prices and shrinking shelf-space I'm finding myself less and less tempted by Voyager or larger figures. Except for FoC Soundwave, because... he's Soundwave.
