The Transformers Prime Beast Hunters Galleries roll on! Today we have the latest two figures from the Voyager Class, Ultra Magnus and Grimwing!

Ultra Magnus makes brilliant use of the Transformers Prime Robots in Disguise Voyager Optimus Prime mold with extensive retooling, new colors, and accessories, which include the Forge of Solus Prime. This retool works especially well since so many fans use the First Edition Voyager Optimus Prime in their displays.

Grimwing is the latest addition to the Predacon ranks. According to the Transformers panel at Toy Fair earlier this year Grimwing is an Ursagrpyh, rather than a generic dragon. He comes with Blackbeak, a semi sentient weapon/drone.

wth is an Ursagryph anyway? Anybody know? He does have some resemblance to G1 Birdbrain.

Excellent galleries as always! Just FYI, there is a little piece that flips out to fill in the hole under Ultra Magnus' chest plate.

I've been trying to recall what they told us during the panel. I know they said it was a cross between a bear and some other animal, a falcon maybe?

Never fear, mythical creature expert is here! ;)

An ursagryph is the fusion of a bear and a falcon, similar to hair a gryphon is a fusion of a lion and an eagle.

Bear and a griffon, maybe?

Upon Google searching "ursagryph", "ursagriff", etc., articles relating to this toy are the most ubiquitous results.

Sounds like something Hasbro just made up.

Again, he's half bear, half eagle, half lion? Please tell me Hasbro wasn't cereal with that. :lol:

Best I can tell "ursagryph" is not an actual mythological creature. Seems like it's supposed to be essentially a griffon with a bear in place of the lion part.

Incidentally, the Hippogriff (which is similar to the "ursagryph") doesn't appear to be a true 'classical' mythological critter, either, rather it seems to have been created in the middle of the Renaissance (i.e. several centuries, if not millenia, after the griffon and other classic beasts were 'born').

This is the first time i've seen Grimwing. He's impressive. His crossbow gun thingy reminds me a lot of the gargoyle crossbows that the Evil Horde figures came with in the MOTU line.

It may very well homage MOTU. It wouldn't be the first MOTU nod in the line (See: Bulkhead-at-arms)

When will these appear at local retail???? :sad: I'd love to pay $20 @ Target, rather than $30+ at online shops!

Here's hoping they make their way to stores soon! =P~

Oh Grimwing looks sweeeet.

Loving how he's a Ursagryph. Wish he had a Bear's Head instead of a "Falcon" head. But that's the Alaska in me. I like Bears.

We need more Bearformers.

Bears.

Amen to that.



A true "ursagryph" should have some elements of a bear. If it's got wings, then it should have a bear head. If it has other bear features, the other features should compliment the bird it is suppose to represent. Fuzors pulled this off really well. While I love Grimwing, it fails at being an "ursagryph" to me with it lacking any actual bear features in my opinion.

I am pretty excited for Ultra Magnus, I really like RID Prime and I think Hasbro did a great job remolding the figure. There is enough new parts on Magnus that makes him feel like a new character rather than a remold of an existing one. The winged jetpack is pretty cool looking. I wonder if it'll fit on the RID Prime and make that figure look more like the new Beast Hunters version. Do we have an estimated retail date yet for the new voyagers? I have a feeling it will be pretty soon and I wouldn't be surprised if I see them on shelves by mid June.

I agree. The RID Prime is a pretty sweet mold! :x I'm not too keen on the robot design (kibble windshields on his chest???), but the ALT mode is solid!

As much as I like seeing it used for Magnus like this, would it be too much to ask for a trailer??? Optimus seems half-finished without his trailer... :sad: I'd much rather have a trailer to interchange between Magnus and Optimus.

You think June release? With how poorly these Voyagers seem to sell, I worry about stores missing entire waves. I was holding my breath for the Voyager Shockwave for a while, and even now, it's hard to really tell he's hit stores around here! :-(

Any reason why you guys don't order these online?

DAAAAAAAAAAAA Bears. :lol:

Anyways, I think it's because of online pricing, shipping, all that stuff. Same reason I don't order much.

Can't wait to get my hands on Manbearpig (South Park), I mean Grimwing. Don't know if I'll pick up the Ultra Magnus yet. I've already got most of the Transformers Prime RID figures and until I know for sure after watching the upcoming season three episodes, which characters are actually gonna appear and get remolds I'll pass. :BOT:

1) Optimus has only used a trailer once, in MECH's debut episode.

2) Ultra Magnus will probably go the same route and pull a very Ultra Magnus-y trailer only once in the series.

Why make a trailer when it doesn't even appear in fiction more than once, compared to the daily happenings with Generation One Optimus Prime?
