    My man Tonyformer made a comment in an earlier thread that he thought Ultra Magnus might make an appearance in this trilogy. I am pretty new to the character but from what I know about him I really like. What do you think he would be like in the new trilogy that (fingers crossed) is hopefully going to be more focused on developing the transformers as characters more so than the previous films. Personality, alt mode, etc...

    If i remembered correctly they originally wanted ultra magnus to be the villan but they changed it due to UM being a sacred heroic character in TF mythos.

    The head of what supposed to be magnus is shown briefly before the nasa astronaughts exclaimed omg.

    I would like Ultra Magnus to not look similar to Optimus. I don’t think he should be a car carrier. I would like to see him in another alt mode. Ultra Magnus is classed as a soldier so I’d like to see him as a military type vehicle. Not like hound is currently but something bigger and bulkier with firepower to match.

    I like Ultra Magnus personality him been a solider/commander who would forsake himself rather than others. This would be a good trait for the character and have him like he is in transformers Prime. Very professional and stick’s by the rules and is heavily influenced by a military back ground he served upon Cybertron.

    I'd love for him to be the commander of a military squadron of Autobots, similar to the Wreckers, like he is in the aligned continuity. Vehicle form, I have no particular problem with, as I always love the vehicular choices for the characters. The robot mode would any of the one's Autoboticon suggested, particularly the second one; it really fits with the new sleek, streamlined style.

    Also, if he could be represented as one of Optimus's old time war friends and field commander as he is in most continuities, then that would be great, but, when he sees the new Optimus, he doesn't necessarily agree with his tactics and techniques of dealing with the enemy. Kind of like they clash heads.

    I have been asking for his debut since TF Movie 1. When the Hasbro big guy said TF4 will have different crews and involved space, a few of us were thinking of TF Season 3 bots like UM, Rodimus, Springer, etc. Oh well, we'll raise the UM debut again for TF5, lol.
