    Spoilers ahoy! Proceed with caution!

    *here there be spoilers!*

    When Optimus Prime, believing he is Orion Pax, looks himself up in the archives he is shown an image of a yet unnamed Transformer. I didn't think anything of it at first, but the more I look at him the more I believe this to be Ultra Magnus.

    I mean just look at the attached images and tell me you don't see how they could be Prime's version of Ultra Magnus.

    You know I can see it, but I personally don't think it's Ultra Magnus. If I'm recalling correctly, that image on the screen was decrypted by Orion Pax, which revealed Optimus Prime. My impression of the scene was the Decepticons simply "covered up" Prime's body to avoid Orion Pax stumbling upon his mirrored self in the files.

    That may be actually Zeta/Sentinal Prime,or just some draticly altered image of Optimus that Megatron made up but who knows? It may be a hint of Ultra Magnus,that and he has a Commander class figure coming up as well so that's a possiblety.

    The Arms and Head look like it could be, but the chest reminds me of Animated Sentinel Prime.

    I remember hearing a rumor about a Cyberverse Ultra Magnus.

    I thought that it was Optimus prime in his Cybertronian mode. I mean, Pax did not know what he looked like as a prime on cybertron.

    Or it could just be a drawing they made up for that scene.

    Would be awesome if it was Magnus. I hope if Sentinel appears he looks like the DOTM version.

    Yeah, just looks like some scary Autobot to keep up the charade.

    But I'd definitely agree with the DOTM Sentinel bit! Bring on the awesomeness :D

    Why can't it just be some one-shot design they cooked up to hide the truth from Orion Pax? It wasn't like a full 3D rendering they have to reuse to get enough mileage out of it.

    I honestly thought it looked more like WFC Zeta Prime than anyone else.

    He could be the "new guy" that might show up?

    I considered that myself. I don't know... you could be right. It could just be some random encryption... thing?

    I guess anything is possible right now.

    I think it was two things. 1) An easter egg for fans of the franchise who may recognize Ultra Magnus in that bot mode, or any other as yet unrevealed Autobot 2) As someone else said, the Decepticons putting that image into their dbase to throw Prime off the trail of his true identify.

    It literally was just Optimus/Orion with bullshit schematics placed atop Optimus' real body schematics to make Orion think that Optimus Prime was: 1) not him 2) someone that doesn't LOOK like him [Megatron didn't expect Starscream to fuck shit up] and 3) an armored warlord.

    Maybe some other Autobot or Decepticon who has the same build as Prime? Considering that Soundwave made the encryption, and Intel as his expertise, this may be or could be someone he encountered or entangled with in his past, most likely on Cybertron (someone who wasn't given screentime in WFC or FOC, perhaps).

    This. The only think reminiscent of Magnus is the ridonkculous tower-shoulders. I don't see any resemblance at all beyond that.

    Yes.

    Hopefully Magnus and Sentinel are two different bots. Bay almost made the mistake of making them the same guy.
