    Bio

    Name: Ultra Magnus
    Alt Mode: CullenTough "Ice Storm" six-wheel drive semi-truck with R. Stack customization kit.
    Faction: Autobot
    Function: Bounty Hunter (current), City Commander (former)
    Motto: "I don't care if I have to haul my chassis from one side of the galaxy to the next, I'm hunting down every Decepticon I could lay my sights on!"

    Ultra Magnus was a courageous warrior on his homeworld of Cybertron. But after Cybertron fell into ruins, Ultra Magnus felt that he no longer had any purpose. Rather than follow Optimus Prime and his fellow Autobots in their quest for the Allspark, Ultra Magnus took to the stars in search of rogue Decepticons.

    His journeys took him throughout the galaxy, hunting down Decepticon filth. Throughout the galaxy, Ultra Magnus gained a fierce reputation amongst alien species as "The Decepticon Hunter."

    Finally, the vindictive warrior found himself on the planet Earth. Here, he would cross paths with his former brother-in-arms, Optimus Prime. Unlike Prime, Magnus does not share Prime's compassion for the humans or their world. To him, Earth is just another stop gap in his quest to kill every Decepticon he runs into.

    Maybe in time, Magnus will learn to care for this green world...much like the world he lost.

    Yup, and you've given him a very tough, more Ironhide or Grimlock personality. I like it though.

    Thank you, mentat emre and alienbot, I appreciate the comments. I'm a big fan of the original G1 Ultra Magnus, and I really liked how the original character was bulky looking. So, I gave my character a more fortified look. And since the original G1 Ultra Magnus had that "white inner Prime mode", I thought I'd give my Magnus some similar lines and elements that the movie Prime had, but give his armor/exoskeleton more bulk and a few sharper corners to make him look more aggressive.

    So, yeah, he's kinda bulked up looking like Ironhide and sorta has a more tough-as-nails personality like Ironhide or Grimlock. Ultra Magnus is supposed to be this great warrior to begin with and I never pictured him being this reserved soldier -->I like to think of him as a bold, got-nothing-to-lose, sort of anti-hero.

    Thanks again.

    Great concept! For a moment, I thought you copied Prime's design. :lol  But yours is very original and awesome :D 

    Is his trailer included in the transformation? :)

    Does he have some kind of super mode that involves the trailer.
    Nice Job.

    I have some plans for the trailer, but being short on time, I just didn't get around to them. I wanted to finish the 'bot before the deadline. But I do plan on finishing up Ultra Magnus with the trailer. We'll see.

    But I appreciate the comments and criticisms. Thanks!

    Thanks for the comments and praise. I really appreciate it. I'm really glad some of you like my Ultra Magnus. And I finally added the trailer/Power Up mode to him. Thanks again. ~L
