    Signal boosting the new, sassy, pity-the-fo' Ultra Magnus render from the TFPrime Top Trumps Cards, which were very, very kindly scanned and shared by londonprophecy over on Tumblr. (Thank you for blowing minds and inducing keyboard smashing!)

    Let the headaches over whether or not Magnus will show up in Prime continue.

    On the aiming for cautious optimism that Magnus will show up and DEAL WITH ALL THE THINGS! in Prime side: Cyberverse toy! Voyager toy! Unique character design that isn't a redeco like Dead End/Hot Shot, etc - let alone a new character render that could have easily been a cannibalization of Optimus. On top of that, this new character render differs from his Mr Grumpy Face render on the Cyberverse box.

    On the why can't we have nice things why Hasbro why side: there's something odd about the hammer, not to mention the legs look identical to the Voyager toy - including the hammer-peg clip--? I can't figure out if he's a full CGI model, or a mutant-hybrid Autobot lovechild of the original toy + Photoshop + Maya. Time and the rest of season two/three will tell, I suppose.

    It looks like a direct render of the voyager toy. The way his wheels pop out of his legs don't look like something the show would have. Also, he doesn't have the same detailed texture as Optimus Prime, and his hammer has a bunch of trash around it.

    Never heard of Top Trumps Card until this. Hopefully, they'll show us more characters sampling. Base on the link, guess that dude already got his pack of card from Fenwicks department store, let see other retail show up.

    As for UMagnus, yeah, they're just basing on the Voyager toy, nothing much was added. It's funny they even included that extra bump located at the inner of the hand so UMagnus can hold the hammer securely. Talk about toy accuracy, so definitely not a full CGI. The hammer, I don't see any trash around it. I thought it looks really cool, hopefully it can be converted and used as a gun as well. So, his ranking is 28, Prime 30, wonder who 29?

    As for Prime, that pose made him look kind of weird. Not sure it's the I don't care mood, or feminine looks, or I'm just having too much time.

    If Magnus does appear, and I'm assuming his voyager toy can do this, his wheels will wrap around his knees.

    Yeah, this pic makes me lean towards Magnus being toy-only for now.

    It even has the same mistransformation as the toy's stock photos...I wouldn't take this very seriously for now.

    Agreed... but am I the only one who doesn't see this as a bad thing? Someone literally used the word "crappy" which seems much too cynical... and entirely inaccurate. But that's just my :2c:

    And Fall used the head for Primes Cliffjumper model.


    THere's a lot of shared pieces, partly at the request of Hasbro.

    Looks way better here. Something feels... "off" about his FOC head, IMO.

    I'm sure they just posed the Voyager's CG model. The one they use to 3D print pieces off to make the actual toy.


    .....what you actually think toys are made with care and by hand anymore? PFFFFT.

    Yeah, that image of Magnus isn't the same quality as the image of Optimus. For the lack of a better description, the Magnus image is a photo of the voyager toy with some fancy image-editing filters on it, while the Optimus image is the legit CG model used on the show. I know that not be exactly the case, but it's the best way I could describe it. Hence why Magnus' hands look like giant single-piece toy hands, while Optimus has dextrous CG digits. Or how Magnus' apparent "model" looks like it stepped directly out of the box.
