    With the nearing release of the MGS04 not-Cliffjumper upgrade, MGS has posted a teaser for their next project. Looks like a combiner! I wonder if maybe it's a combiner using existing Hasbro molds, and just adding the combiner bits? Looks kinds like a Fall of Cybertron Ultra Magnus in the middle.

    My guess would be a FOC Ultra Magnus upgrade. Those arms have the pylons and shoulder missles that UM has.

    I'm guessing a WFC/FOC inspired Ultra Magnus.

    Definitely FOC Magnus. Looks like the torso is left in altmode configuration.

    Definitely FOC Prime in the middle. The shoulders make me think this isn't a combiner; it's Ultra Magnus.

    Part of me cynically wonders what they'll knock off to do this. The feet look a little like the Iron Army...

    I was praying for Computron when I clicked on the link.

    That is definitely a UM upgrade. Interesting but are we not getting a UM remould from Prime?

    Oh I get it, this is an upgrade for FOC UM.

    Yeah, clearly Ultra Magnus. Really not familiar with MGS though ...

    Definitely Magnus. As if it wasn't already obvious, you can still compare the highlighted areas in the pic. Like the toes, hands and shoulder.

    I just checked that too. The limbs are just copy+pasted from the concept art.

    -edit-

    Now with 100% more illustration.

    Excuse you...you need a defensor :p  (And while I do want a defensor, I don't want one from MGS.) I on the other hand am all over this upgrade set.

    This will need to be pretty awesome if it's going to replace my City Commander.
