    Never got G1 Magnus (brick). Was sorely disappointed by Titanium Magnus (terrible vehicle mode). And the first MP Magnus was, well, a white Prime. But THIS?! SWEET MUNKEY PRIMUS!! I am all over this. Now....BRING ON GALVATRON!! (so that I can justify getting MP Rodimus)

    TCracker, you are the man for the info! I'm praying TTomy would release the armor version or shall I say the partsformer, ehehe!! That would certainly be a homage to the G1 figure as well as for more playing value. This way, one week I can display him in his armor mode and the next week in his white Magnus mode.

    And if Hasbro want to release MP UMagnus, they can use the design base on....
    *wink, wink at TCracker*.

    I'm not quite understanding the hate for an Ultra Magnus utilizing armor. Ever since I had the G1 figure I've always considered him an armored white Prime even if the toon didn't.

    The fact is, if you want a non-armored Ultra Magnus it'd hafta be an all new mold and that's just not gonna happen.

    ^ I understand it perfectly. But for one obscure story, Ultra Magnus has never been presented as wearing "armor." Does it make him more powerful? Can it be taken away? Destroyed? What is it called? Can Optimus wear the armor? Why does Magnus resemble Optimus underneath? We've never seen these addressed in a story, and I'm sure we never will.

    For the toy I don't care, they can do it however they do it. But it's not difficult to understand why much of the fandom thinks of UM as a blue-and-white robot who turns into a car carrier, instead of some weird armor fusion thing.

    And when Ultra Magnus is re-envisioned in other lines like RiD and Animated...he's not a white Optimus. He homages the character, not the toy.

    Am I the only one that ughhh at the UM concept? I guess at this point of time , many would have spurned UM toy as White Prime , even though he's in blue/red armor... after so many incarnations of him before from a deluxe sized to a Masterpiece.

    This time around... Taktomy could've saved their engineering efforts and produce UM MP toy just like his G1 cartoon incarrnation , with no intermediate "white prime" to complicates things. If I wanted a Prime with extra armour... they better be to the tune of "Powermaster".

    The price of upcoming MP10 is already wallet-bleeding, I dare not think whats the price is like having a white MP10 with UM armor would do... its gonna put my wallet in a permanent coma.

    I have always consider Magnus the White Prime without Armor and call him Ultra Magnus with Armor on.

    Great idea. I'd also love to see a MP Springer and Galvatron. Hell, a decent Classics mold for either of them would even be nice. heh
