I'll have to say, the Takara version is most impressive. However, I think the Takara uses the toy accurate blue, and the Hasbro version uses the G1 cartoon blue, similar to how MP-10/Toys "R" Exclusive Optimus Prime was differentiated.

Magnus is the traditional palette swapped; whereas Ultra Magnus is predominately blue with red and white highlights, Diaclone
Magnus is predominately red with blue and white highlights.
While Combat Hero Optimus could be a potential suit, keep in mind that both the original canceled figure and the Generations figure that homages said canceled product both lack the sufficient amount of white that helps define Ultra Magnus.
Many thanks to Godzillabot Primal for this epic signature!
