Courtesy of TAG Hobby, we get a blurry look at some scans of issue 195 of the Figure King magazine, which finally reveals the quite awaited Masterpiece figure MP-22 Ultra Magnus! The figure, a remold of MP-10 Optimus Prime with add-on armour, is shown to be able to carry up to four MP sized cars on its trailer, we get a close-up of its headsculpt. Check out the images below, including a clearer shot, with comparison, of the page courtesy of the TF Upgrader Facebook page.

Yep, KFC lost the Magnus war. As far as far as we can tell, this thing rocks so hard.

Why? Is it because I'm a ginger? Or because I sold mine on ebay?

I'll take a fresh pair of pants, though.

in my eyes.. this thing is PERFECT.. from it's height difference to MP10 down to the ankle tilts, which i love.. this thing looks PERFECT.

i can't wait. and i LOVE that they've kept the less is more aesthetic with this figure.. there isn't a whole bunch of unnecessary ugly mold detail.

i'm so excited for this.. i'm super excited for bumblebee and wheeljack, but i'm WAY more excited for this.

and i love that it's a parts-former.. rather than what KFC did by going with the titanium route. i hope we see color photos soon.

i hate having to wait for these masterpiece figures. the wait is always too long.

As do I (though I'm sure someone else will be along later to tell us how we're wrong).

While I don't share you level of enthusiasm, I really can't wait for him to be released.

The transformation in the legs is quite different than the G1 figure. The size looks good. I just wish his feet were better defined and the inner lower leg could get covered a bit more.

Does anyone know what is up with the head shot in this picture? Is this showing Convoy's head with the back half of Magnus's helmet?

I dunno what it says, but I'm guessing that the naked magnus head will come with removable parts to be replaced with the actual Magnus helmet, so that pic is of the original head with said parts removed.
