    Because we need another Ultra Magnus that's uglier than all the others out?

    Yeah I'm pretty much done using that mold as UM.

    FansProject needs to share some of them oversized hands with MMC (seeing how MMC's hands tend to be too small in relation to the rest of their bodies).

    This is neat is an odd sort of way and I do have a spare Voyager UM that I'll be hard pressed to get rid of without losing money on, but I'm not digging the proportions on this guy at all. Legs are too long, torso is thin and gangly, and those oversized oven mitts / boxing gloves are a bit comical in my eyes (similar to FP Revolver's add-on armor hands but worse). Also not a big fan of Jigsaw-puppet-mouth syndrome with the face sculpt.

    I love Fansproject's products but I'm not so sure about this one.

    But eh, at least it might be better suited for Henkei Optimus than their DIA Commander upgrade.

    I want that PM Prime set so bad, but man I will definitely need some kind of mod for those hands.

    Also, I can't help but think that UM set would work really well for a Thunderclash with a different chest piece and head.

    This is awesome. They managed to integrate the armor and add ankle tilts

    Since this forms only the cab and FP loves trailers .... I want a BIGASS power master prime trailer

    This has an Animated Ultra Magnus feel to it which I like. I'm only interested in the Prime version though.

    Why does Ultra Magnus get stuck with tiny little missiles while Optimus gets to have huge howitzer cannons? :D  Bigger missiles woulda helped with compensating for the small-ish shoulders and improving the silhouette what with the overly long legs and giant boxing glove hands.

    They couldn't figure out a way to bury the truck cab on his arms?

    Whoo, somehow I kind of like it. Hm..not sure he has mouthplate or acutal mouth as it appears to have chin below. My only beef is the ginormous hand, need to scale back 40%.

    This remind me too much of Wing of Honor Magnum, FP should've used this opportunity to create it. That would've given me a good reason to purchase even more, not to mention another reason to get the all white Classic UM from TTomy version.

    these things don't appeal to me in the slightest. What is it supposed to be, just armor for armors sake?

    What is FP doing that they push something like this into production, instead of the rest of the headmasters???

    Well it's one way to have Classics UM wear armour again though the head's a little too big.
