    Diaclone.

    Battle Convoy(G1 Prime) and Powered Convoy(Ultra Magnus) were two types of battle mechs.

    They were adopted into Transformers and given character names. Ultra Magnus, being a Diaclone Powered Convoy, has a basic white cab that pulls the trailer, which is his body, it's a repaint of the same mold as G1 Prime. In the show, he never had a basic robot mode, but Dreamwave decided to fanwank away his character distinction and make him into a repaint.

    Not really. The smaller robot mode was never acknowledged by any form of Transformers media until Dreamwave. Until then, Magnus was just a car carrier that turned into a big robot, not an Optimus Prime repaint with a funky suit of armor.

    I'm picking up what you're throwing down, but I've always been a fan of toy-accuracy. And as the G1 Ultra Magnus toy IS "an Optimus Prime repaint with a funky suit of armor", I like the acknowledgement. Besides, it's not like the white cab Magnus has a six-issue miniseries devoted to him. It was just a couple of pages, wasn't it?

    Starscream and company, and Prowl and company are accepted reapiants,why not Prime and Magnus?

    ultra mags is a pansy (i wanted to use the other P word), thus necessating his combination with his trailer.

    original optimus prime, on the other hand is a stud. no power modes, just his gun and his good to go.

    thats what separates the king and pretenders (not the ones with shells). no super mode necessary.
