    Today it gives us pride to share a new Transformers gallery with you! Next up is the first of two new releases in Voyager Class Wave 4, Ultra Magnus!

    Ultra Magnus may be familiar to anyone who picked up the Cyberverse toy, as the Voyager Class toy is very much an upscaled version of the Cyberverse Commander, with a few extra steps and panels for the arm and leg transformations. This regrettably brings over some of the bad points of that design along with the good ones, such as the rear view of the truck mode having the robot mode legs on full view. But there are some good points too, including some excellent articulation and the best MechTech weapon on a Transformers Prime toy yet - one that not only locks in its deployed mode, but that also features two distinct modes.

    All in all, Ultra Magnus is a great toy. He's not without flaws, but he stands up well all things considered. Well worth the purchase in my opinion, provided you are able to pick him up at retail or close to retail prices.

    Awesome gallery. Though the box art is really puzzling to me...it looks like a very crude CGI rendering of the toy itself, whereas Thundertron's looked far more like actual show art. Even weirder, Cyberverse Magnus had a much more realistic looking mug shot on his packaging-- it looked like it could have been one of Lopez's concept paintings or something. Not at all like the ugly picture used on this box and the trading card.

    I would have rather there been a comparison with PRID prime as well, as they would in theory scale better....

    Judging from the picture, my only concerns are the lack of ankle joints and how far the shoulders stick out, but that's due to transformation i'm sure....



    I MUST have this now.

    It seems to be some really thin plastic.
    Well at least it looks like it with the white background.I cant help but think about how long these will last,Considering g1 toys are still in good shape after all these years.

    That is very much a robot who is sticking his butt out the back of his truck... Someone was in a weird place when they designed this.

    Pretty decent, he's got waist articulation which is a rarity these days, ball joint hips and shoulders, thigh and upper arm swivels, plus ratchets in his elbows and knees. Ball jointed head as well, good range of movement there. There's very little to keep him from striking a lot of poses except, as nOObiE do0 picked up on, the plastic feels a bit lighter, which is a double edged blade but generally it means wider stances are harder to balance because there is less weight in the legs to keep them grounded. It's a real problem with his big ol' gun.

    Wasn't going to jump on it, but these pics changed my mind. I would be up for a Motormaster repaint too!

    The blue plastic inside the arms seems vulnerable to stress marks.

    Hasn't caused a problem yet but keep an eye on it.

    Yep. Like I said before...

    The transformations are so similar, that it makes me wonder if his show CGI model is currently in the works.

    Love that picture of him with the kids.

    Best pictures seen so far. He's cool if there was ever any doubt. Just a little dry in execution.

    You get much more a feel for his character with the voyager... Pretty sure if he'd had been in show already everyone be going bananas for him.

    Probably needs more pain detailing in vehicle mode (and some comparison photos with RiD Ultra Magnus/Car Robots God Magnus) - but other than that, he looks superb! :D

    Yeah, or worse. As much as I wanted to buy Magnus, I just don't think I can go along with elbow joint parts (or any joints really) made out of translucent plastic. There's just too much history of those breaking. :(

    Something about this guy is really speaking to me. Love the accessories and the robot-mode design. As for the truck mode, we'll just pretend that didn't happen.

    Could use some more paint apps. I'm hoping/thinking Ultra Magnus is the commander of he Autobots who aren't on earth.
