    I know there are 20 places to discuss this, but I plan on doing a good chunk of Siege shoots over the course of the line so this will be the gallery update thread.

    First up, Ultra Magnus!

    2000 Ultra Magnus looks fat better than modern Ultra Magnus.

    Top notch photography here!

    I just picked up UM and what a great figure!  Still don\'t care for the Alt mode because of RID influence, but still a great bot!!

    So question is this ultra Magnus, far more superior than CW magnus. I think it might be due to better mold and plastic, but the only thing I’m hesitant on is the size.

    Unfortunately, Disney apperently owns the rights to the show. So unless a deal is made that will never happen.

    If you're concerned about size as in value for the money, I feel you.

    But outside of the G1 toy and to a lesser extent IDW, Ultra Magnus is not a supremely tall character. So a big figure is not terribly accurate.

    I\'m going to get some hate, but I really don\'t like how this guy looks. He has little resemblance to \'86 Magnus, he\'s got a big, blue baboon butt, and he\'s blocky as heck. More power to everyone else, but I\'ll stick with the Combiner Wars Magnus, even with some of my problems with him.

    How does Disney own the rights to it?

    They dont own the rights of the show outright, only the english language dub when they bought Saban.

    As for the topic at hand, I'm rather eager to get the leader figures after getting all of the voyagers and deluxes. Sideswipe in particular may be one of the best deluxe figures Hasbro has ever put out.

    I got them both off of Habro Pulse and I have to say that I absolutely adore both of them. Shockwave IMO is just amazing. He is the perfect update to the character. UM’s trailer is a little dissapointing in vehicle mode, but it still forms a nice solid chunk thats great to hold.

    I personally like to peg his black guns onto the ports in the middle of the trailer where most put his missiles. It sits much more flush to the trailer and looks more natural.

    Another great gallery, as usual.

    He seems to have lost his ability to be a car carrier, but elsewise looks totally awesome in every regard.

    I love it that he's just a little bigger than Prime and Megatron when armored up; he doesn't tower over them as other Ultra Magnus toys have in the past.

    Thats because he is exactly what he originally was, Optimus Prime in a suit of armor.

    EDIT: Before I get pounced on, yes I am aware that was an extreme in arguably the most terribly animated G1 episode. Just having fun people.
