    hi again, sorry for all these questions. but as you know im new to these products and started collecting very late on these add on kits. i want to get a magnus for the ultra magnus fansproject blue/white armor. so my question is i did a search for the classics ultra magnus, and all i found was he came with skywarp in a 2 pack. is that the only version to get for the add on armor? or is there another version of the ultra magnus which does not come in the 2 pack box? i need the one ultra magnus and not the skywarp. thanks again.

    Other than cheaply made ko's, the figure from the 2-pack is the only one. Takara never did come out with a Henkei version of it. If you're up for it, you could always just get a Classics Voyager Optimus Prime (same mold, just different color scheme), and paint it into Ultra Magnus.

    Shouldn't be all that hard to find an Ultra Magnus on it's own. It's going to cost a decent amount compared to the original retail price, but if you really really want him, it'll be worth it in the end. The armor being made and sold for him caused the aftermarket price for the figure to rise quite dramatically.

    It only came in the 2 pack, but you can put the armor on Classics Prime or Nemesis Prime if you want.

    There are 3 ways to get an Ultra Magnus:

    1. The two pack with Classics Skywarp.
    2. The two pack with Classics Optimus Prime.
    3. Loose.

    classics prime - dia powered convoy
    classics ultra magnus - dia city commander
    classics nemesis prime - shadow commander

    all 3 are interchangeble because they're all the same mold. only downside you'd get is that the colors won't match. be prepared to spend at least $100+ to get a prime/magnus/nemesis mold + armor.

    DIA Commander is actually a nod to the Diaclone Powered Convoy, the toy that was later repainted into Ultra Magnus, which had a blue cab robot. So DIA = a blue Prime.

    But yeah, Ultra Magnus was a Target exclusive 2pack that came with Skywarp. There was also a 2pack with Optimus that was sold overseas and online. That's it.

    he's talking about pre-G1 transformers diaclone powered convoy. try to google "diaclone ultra magnus" and you'll see what it is.

    i'm talking about picking them up as a set (prime mold + armor), which the total cost to you would be around $100+.

    thanks for all the helpful info everyone, the blue prime is sort of confusing me. do people use the reg classics prime for this add on kit? fo dia i mean. instead of the blue version which i dont know anything about. i just dont want to be the only one doing a weird combo. so do anyone here use the classics prime for the add on kit for dia commander?

    like i said, kusanagi was talking about the g1 prime mold. diaclone powered convoy is basically g1 ultra magnus in different color. blue cab + blue/grey/red trailer hauler. he only used it as reference to where dia powered convoy was based from.

    for the classics mold, you use classics or henkei prime for the dia armor as hasbro and takara didn't made any blue classics prime. hope this helps.

    glad to help! yeah, if you really wanna get any of the classics prime mold as well as the armor, better do it now, as prices have been really on the upside. try looking at junkion exchange too, you'll never know, you might find a good deal there for both.
