What happened to his face?
No idea why that link didn't work.
Cheem The Rup
let's link those glorious pics





I see a puppet head anyway lol
Erector
Yeah not sure on the face, let's see what we get when the pics aren't too blurry...
Ikkstakk
It looks like there's some sort of removable battle mask, and this is what the face looks like without it attached. Or, it's the inner face under the outer face.
TigerBlade
Initial thoughts? Stack looks better.

Still open mind till clearer pics and in colour.
Fort Max
Head does look rather odd, can't imagine why they'd screw that up though, there must be something going on that the picture alone isn't getting across.

Cheem, ta for posting the pictures directly.
TigerBlade
They could have snapped all of the pics, there are some off to the side cut off. I can see he has an opening Matrix chamber too.

Yeah, I'm guessing no included matrix since the one shown is an mo10 one.
TigerBlade
I'm guessing he has a face swap gimmick like Bumblebee...albeit only the lower part. The lower part of the face looks like MP10's neck joint to me.
Mr.Deflok
Was the guy who took these photos having a wank at the same time? And was he a time traveler from 1999 using a cellphone from that time to take the photos?

Why is it the "first pics" are always this crappy?

On topic though, as a Magnus fan, I'll buy this regardless. The pics don't inspire much confidence though I know the final toy will be great and hey, these are terrible pics. That weird face is obviously NOT gonna be the actual Magnus face but still... weird. It actually looks like the back of the head since it has clearance by the neck joint to tilt backwards.

His vertical crest is on the other side of the head too.
Starscream Gaga
The opening Matrix chamber is awesome.

Yeah, I believe its a swapping face. I think the text next to it says that he has a toy and cartoon face. Or its explaining how the UM head goes over the Convoy head... Looks awesome either way and the full body picture clearly doesn't have the weird face.
Seeaich
With what looks to me like a small port in the back half of the Magnus crest and a big one in the Prime-style head crest, my guess would be a removable faceplate, front crest & antennae to stop Magnus having a derpily large head when armoured up.
SouthtownKid
Finally pictures... although blurry. Still exciting to see it's all new and not another repaint.

I'm almost more excited about the FigureArts Kikaider on that page, though...
Shin-Gouki
That face is god awful.
Josh
Ahhhhhh I can almost see
TigerBlade
Why do ppl not think it's a(n) MP10 repaint? Looks like MP10s thighs and inner lower legs to me. Plus that cab couldn't look more like MP10 if it tried.

As people have pointed out, that's obviously not the normal face, as can be seen in the full body pic, the picture is merely showing off a gimmick in mid use. Its either face-swapping or showing how it connects to the Convoy head.

Mp-10 was designed for it to be retooled in the future as Ultra Magnus.

As for the face no need to get worked up over nothing, it's just a blurry pics that's all. I'm sure those who can read Japanese can explain it to us. Some of us here can get overly paranoid at times.

Edit: Thanks to Fort max & Cheem the rup for the heads up.

That's what I think too, I think it'll come with the face Magnus made when he was straining to open the Matrix before Galvatron destroyed him. Maybe the entire head itself is swappable too, with a white Optimus head(Magnus head with blue battle mask and red eyes) included.

HOPING the eyes are like the glasses/goggle-look from the cartoon. Eagerly looking forward to seeing this in color. I hope it has the G1 toy colors. I already like the way this thing looks over Citizen Stack(though they do serve different purposes).

Looks like mp10s legs with snap on armour so im going with mp10 and trailer so it going to cost mucho dosh...still going to buy it
Trent
Holds 4 MP cars.


Cool.
DJW107PRIME
Citizen Stacks looks better at this point in imo but it's still early for this guy.

There's a price on the pics, I know there'll be some mark up but you should be able get a guesstimate in mind. It's 19,940 yen.

In the description of this pic I read two times "MP-10", please if someone can translate the text would do a great favor to the fandom

Looking at the head shot again the magnus head snaps on to the prime head thatsw why it looks weird as the back half is not on
SuperGrimlock
Jeez I'm getting all I asked for this week. New prototype reveal from fans toys for ft-05 and finally seeing a prototype for mp-22. Not only that but the rest of ft's dinobots and they are including grimlock. Also on that page I finally see the awakened full action unicorn gundam with what appears to be three shields hopefully included. Well I'm good for the rest of the year. Now we just need some clear scans of magnus because I can't make hardly heads or tails out of those. I will say I will be sadly disappointed if I can't have an armorless magnus. Was hoping he would retain his armored optimus gimmick that way we could see a powered optimus repaint in the future. Nice to see the matrix chamber opens appropriately.

I think you guys misundertood me. I know it's MP10 in a suit....I'm asking those that think it isn't and think it's a new mould think that way
starscream-99
Not digging the face but some 3rd party can fix that. The rest though looks really good.

Ha ha gotcha!

I think those guys are still in denial.
ferrari35

No one said it was a new mould, it's been retooled/remoulded to have new parts and people think that because it's in prototype grey. They wouldn't prototype a straight up repaint.

About 115 quid or $194 dollars thats not bad might be best to get it straight from japan
OptimusTimelord
This looks spot on, proportions are perfect (that was the only thing that concerned me about the armoured-up MP-10 concept). Citizen Stack was seriously tempting me, but now I can relax and wait for the real deal

Holds four cars! Awesome
OptimusPrimeFour
AHHHHHH Yeaaaaa!!! here we go! looks great so far. Im just curious what is going on with the face/head looks weird but interesting.
Shin Densetsu
Almost sure the legs are MP-10 legs with armor added on.
Mr.Deflok
With a little remolding this will make a great Sunstreaker.

OK, I admit I laughed.

Do my eyes deceive me or does he have a big back pack goin on?

They managed to fit four cars on his trailer! I wasn't sure they would be able to. So sexy!

That did catch my eye, can't think what part it is though.
Cheem The Rup
ok a guy in the fb group Addicts (https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?f...type=1&theater) translated the text on the scan and it's written that the mold inside is an MP10 and that head is an helmet

You make a valid point but it could be something as simple as a new head mechanism. We need more pics really.

Oh awesome. The back pack lookin thing is not as crazy as the blurry pics, and he is not that huge compared to Prime. I am digging this. The thing I was worried about the most to be honest was the space for the Matrix, and they got it. *Thumbs Up*
Star Saber
Wow, Magnus looks awesome!
