    Concept art-only slide depicting a busted-up Ultra Magnus-like character. Posted by Oscar Fung on his Facebook account:

    Its only one picture but it seems like Magnus got F#CKED up in some battle and is piecing together parts from various other bots, possibly the Datson bros and i think i saw Hound's door on his shoulder.

    Cross-Dimension's world seems to be a dystopian one. We already saw the Seekers with bits of Dinobot being used as armor

    Definitely an interesting and original concept, and I applaud Maketoys for that. Not sure yet if I'd buy a figure of him though, I'll have to see more details first. A Mad Max style alt mode would probably sell me. ;)

    This stuff kinda has a Mad Max vibe to it or even an Age of Apocalypse vibe

    If this is the angle they are going with for this line I will immediately go all in. I didn't get this vibe from Optimus or Megatron, but this Ultra Magnus looks awesome and I totally get where you're coming from.

    I'm a bit burned out on nothing but slavish remakes of 30-year-old figures, so I absolutely love this concept just for being original. Just hope they don't drop it after three figures like Hearts of Steel, I was super into that also :\

    If he has pieces of other characters in him, it's not just zombie Magnus, he's Frankenstein's Magnus! Or possibly Fresh Golum (Bot-Steel Golum?) Magnus to use the AD&D term.

    The non-damaged version will probably be the armored figure that everyone thought was P/M Prime.

    This is what I expected him to actually end up looking like after the junkions fixed him in the original movie. Would have made so much more sense at the time haha.

    So I certainly dig the idea. I do wonder if this is just art or will be an actual figure though, I wonder how the transformation would work with so many unique parts.

    If they actually make something like this, there better be a crazed-mad scientist version or Wheeljack and/or Ratchet who created this monstrosity.

    I mean it's one of thing that the seekers skinned the dinobots, but to cannibalize parts from your own teammates seems extra low.

    I was a bit apprehensive at first at the thought of Zombie Magnus, but seeing this quells my fears.
    Oh my god. This Franken-Magnus is sick! Like, I don't know where to begin. We almost never see battle-damaged figures, so this is truly a treat. I love the look of robots with bits of their armor torn off, revealing their interior skeletons. Just makes me wonder what the alt mode is going to look like. A vehicle torn to shreds just sounds so cool.
    Maketoys... You're knocking it out of the park with this line...

    That being said, I still would love to see a non-damaged Magnus, just because.

    Kind of reminds me of Lawrence Fishburn's character in Predators. I will laugh if they make Magnus' CPU half-fried due to the events. :lol 

    *in the deep, movie commentator, voice*: "In a world where parts are scarce and energon is even more. Bots do what they must to survive, some showing the war was less kind to them than to others ..."

    <a battle ravaged Magnus makes his way past the wreckage of cybertronian bodies ... the screen fades the black>

    "CROSS DIMENSION! Coming to a retailer near you!"

    :cool:
