    Noticed on TFWiki that there isn't a picture of this on there. Since I can't draw attention to a ten year old thread with the picture, I thought I'd post it in a new one for someone who has an account on there. Honestly...I didn't even realize that this existed until I found the thread about it.

    What a beaut. If I remember right this was one of the insanely scarce Car Robots Lucky Draw figures, and I think this one is even rarer than Fire Convoy. Is this one yours?

    God is that thing beautiful... Have we ever seen it combined with the black fire convoy? Or is that too much to hope that one person would have both?

    No. I found a picture posted by Sol Fury in a 10 year old thread. Looked it up on TFWiki and there wasn't a pic, so I"m trying to draw attention to it.

    And yeah, it IS beautiful...

    I wouldn't go as far as calling it 'beautiful', as the RID Magnus mould is kind of a stinker (though not without its charms of course). Nice colour scheme though.

    Hey hey hey, just because it has like six points of articulation doesn't make it bad, it does its job!

    Its job being, of course, to make God Fire Convoy. :D

    Exactly. And for what it is, this is a beautiful specimen.

    I love CR Ultra Magnus even though it was a brick with a questionable robot mode. The figure has one of my absolute favorite alt-modes.

    Agreed. Maybe I was kind of a dense kid, but I didn't realize any of the Magnuses were supposed to be car carrier trucks until I saw God Magnus' vehicle mode. I loved his portrayal on the series, too; seeing a Magnus being a jealous younger brother is kind of an anime trope but it's pretty interesting in the context of established Transformers relationships and hierarchy.

    It was the first time Ultra Magnus was ever portrayed by Hasbro to be related to Optimus (the fact that neither ARE those characters per Car Robots, notwithstanding). But that was then used in Dreamwave. Trying to think of other times it may have been used and I'm drawing a blank...but it did seem to be a canon relation for at least until Animated turned it around again.

    Ha! I was also going to say that I love his portrayal in the series for the exact same reasons you gave. It was a nice variation on how UM is typically characterized.

    To be honest, TFwiki is the worst when it comes to Takara/TakaraTomy content. There was even a discussion about that, and some of those who contribute agreed that the Hasbro version was more important. Which explains a lot of the inaccurate terms and facts, as well as omissions like this. :redface2: 

    Besides that... I am glad that you found this! I only got to see the yellow variant in the past. But I think that this variant is the best one yet! :buttrock

    That's a lucky draw and 10 was made.
    Transformers at the moon have many pics on their site.
