    So I just got in all the Wave 3 of the FoC line today, and this is one of those bad boys that came in. Since this is pretty much the same mold as FoC Optimus who was already released and reviewed, I am not going to go too crazy in this review.

    Here are the main things to know:

    - I was reading a lot about people saying the paint in the pictures doesn't looks so hot, so they were waiting for the Takara release. First things first. The paint is amazing in person. It just pops. I don't personally see a reason to wait for the Takara paint. I did not notice any paint issues with mine. Unfortunately my pics make the plastic look yellow a bit. In person it is a nice strong white.

    - The Weapons combine. They go from a gun and a sword to one big ass sword. I do have to say, this is an awesome feature. After the mess that the Prime line had with their weapons, this is a welcomed addition.

    I really think that is all there is to know about this guy that is significant over the FoC Optimus Prime mold of this guy.

    Overall, I am very pleased with him, but he needs a trailer. I really hate those pegs that stick out of his feet in Alt mode. Sure they are good for pegging in guns, but other then that, they look like they are meant to fit a trailer.

    I already have a spare rifle from FoC Optimus to fill one of those holes in the meantime.

    Nope, just a thread for the gallery posting. For whatever reason, a UM thread wasn't started with the rest of them. AFAIK, I do not think there is a thread for Airraid/Fireflight, yet.

    Thanks bro. I wanted to make the colors pop. I mean, the colors on this thing are so ridiculously good. Probably the best I have seen in YEARS.

    I searched first, but didn't find one. So that is why I posted this one.

    100% agree with you. I am happy this came out as well, because I decided to skip on the FoC Optimus since I already had the WFC one, which I think is sooooo much better for Optimus.

    This is perfect for UM.

    No problem. Happy to help.

    I know I keep saying this, but the color will blow you away. I am really happy with the FoC wave 3 figures. They don't feel cheap at all. Almost like Hasbro heard us and gave us what we wanted.

    He looks good.

    Can someone post some pictures of Prime Ultra Magnus holding his weapons, though? I just want to know if they look good on him.

    This guy looks so much nicer than Optimus. I'll be picking him up, no question.

    Nice pictures. I had cancelled my order for Wave 3 from BBTS just because I don't really want the Shockwave repaint and I wasn't so stoked about Ultra Magnus, but he actually looks pretty badass.

    He looks good! I hope I actually see him in stores soon. I will probably give both his guns to FoC Prime, and have Magnus carry the sword. They'll look so badass together!

    And yes, I would love for a third party to make an addition to this guy in the form of a trailer! Maybe something that becomes a weapon base like in DOTM, or a power suit, or both!

    I finally got the chance to crack open Magnus' packaging. After opening Starscream first, I'm a bit disappointed. It's not a bad toy at all, just tiny, which I'm sure has been beaten to death on this forum. It looks great and is fun to fiddle with, but let's be honest: I really just bought it for the possible 3rd party upgrade set. :) 

    If this was released as a voyager I'd buy it all over again, 3rd party or not though.

    Wow, I didn't know about the sword and gun combining until I read your review, which was great by the way! Really great, clear pictures! :thumb  This mold looks a bit better as Ultra Magnus than as Optimus Prime! :lol
