Where you shop you at 3d tvs 859 and up where I live some of them are sale nice but nice enough to buy could be little better bigger expensive size of robotech transformers I never got into that series


What did you mean about robotech?

I didn't mean it literally. ;) He does look a lot like MP-10, and at the end of the day, even with all the gimmicks, this Ultimetal Prime is essentially a poseable statue. So is the MP-10, but it can transform into an awesome truck!
It's odd.

Wolf, for $800 you can get almost the entire remaining 1st season Autobot cast in Masterpiece form (when they finally get made and released. :)

That's a nice looking figure, but not 800 bills nice. Plus it doesn't transform. Perfect if your into this type a figure.

I never thought of it that way, but you're right, it would make for great stop mo' animation! But seriously, if I bought this, and that's a massive IF, I'd be too scared to touch it! I would just sit back and bask in the glory of it's awesomeness. If you see the way some guys do stop mo', they break apart the toy into it's component parts to achieve certain poses, I couldn't imagine breaking apart something this brilliant! :D

That is a real thing of beauty, but 800 is just to rich for me, not that I wont spend 800 on TF's but I agree all the MP's for this year and next or one of those. Hmm I will just still with the MP line.

I'm paying $800 or more for a figure that doesn't transform, yet it is a Transformer. Didn't Optimus Prime had a cosmotron?

the Optimus Prime Maquette did not transform yet it's very expensive. I'm not complaining about the price on this one. Though I just feel bad because my budget for toys is a 300 USD at max. Must make more money.

Alfes2010 has tweeted a plethora of new in-hand images of the highly detailed 17" UM-01 Ultimetal Optimus Prime by Action Toys. This premium figure features lights and sounds as well as snap on armor and a premium price tag. Even if you can't own this beautiful figure, you can drool over the in- hand pics mirrored below.

While he does look uncomfortably naked without all those panels snapped on, this is an amazingly nice and detailed looking figure. Unfortunately it's a deal-breaker for me... Any Transformer that can't actually transform is, for me, not really a Transformer, or worth collecting. Especially considering this thing's price tag.

My first thought was that there was a Matrix to go in his chest and another one to put on the display base... But if they are one and the same, you're right, this thing must be quite large. I could see how the huge price tag would start to make more sense if that was the case.

It is the same one, this thing is about two feet tall.
The price is due to the size and the fact that this is mostly diecast, plus heavy on paint.


Goddamn that thing just looks better with each pic, I wish I could aford him.

Cant wait for the first review of this figure...

Thus far, it seems like the metal armor is limited to the arms, the front of the legs and hips... Im thinking that MP1 may have as much metal content as this figure does. If that is the case, then I dont think the price is justified... masterpiece voltron, 40th anniversary mazinger z and MP-1 seem like such a bargain comparing their price point at their time of release.

I wonder what an MP-1 like figure would cost nowadays if the masterpiece line had honored that much metal content and size in all of their figures, maybe it would cost $300-450 dollars, who knows...

Cool figure nevertheless, nice display stand. Nice box, kinda like 40th anniversary mazingers, big box with smaller boxes inside to keep the figure and armor and accesories separate and protected...

Very nice! :D

Glad I ordered it. Looking forward to it. The engineering is amazing, the details are phenomenal, and it will immediately be the centrepiece of any room I put it into. Completely worth the $800 to me.

Disagree. I bet big money if you had a real doll sitting in the same room it would draw way more attention than Terminator Prime...

The 2015 Japan Dynamic Toy Show, taking place from February 6-8, revealed a new entry into the UM Ultimetal Line, the one featuring a giant diecast non transforming eletronic and fully articulated Optimus figure. This new entry is UM 03 Ultimetal Ultra Magnus.

This Ultra Magnus figure seems to be a white repaint of UM 01, Ultimetal Optimus Prime, in a similar color scheme to MP 02 Ultra Magnus. Judging from the packaging seen in the picture below, it seems to feature removeable Ultra Magnus Armour, in a similar yet much updated fashion to the G1 toy.

A battle damaged version of Ultimetal UM 01 Optimus Prime was also present at the show. This is probably UM 02.

The following pictures come from the Cybergundam Facebook page.

Hasbro and Takara should license out the name "Action Masters" for these types of products. The recent Gohkin Art Storm Roadbuster, Alpha Trion, Optimus Prime and Grimlock would have been phenomenal candidates for a licensed Action Masters sub-line (especially the latter 3 with their cartoon accuracy).

I did not. I tried getting a sample for Seibertron.com but came up empty handed unfortunately. For a non-transforming item, it was simply too expensive. $200 I would have been in. Heck, the Hot Toys Optimus Prime is more than half the price and while I'm in on that it's more an excuse to finally get a Hot Toys figure than anything for me. I also didn't get the massive Black Zarak and Scorponok "Action Masters" even at 50% off from HLJ when they had their Christmas sale because I couldn't justify spending $500 plus shipping on those two for non-transforming Transformers.

I'd rather take that money and get Dai Atlas and the Big Powered giftset, Browning, Blue Bacchus, Black Shadow, Grandus, or Galaxy Shuttle. Maybe when I finish up my Japanese G1 collection I might consider large items like that.

Even I have my limits!

In Five Faces of Darkness, Rodimus Prime journeys through the Matrix and learns about the origins of the Transformers.

In the beginning the Autobots and neither the Decepticons could transform at all.

Then due to the war, the Autobots turned to stealth and invented the art of transforming.

So yeah... Transformers weren't always Transformers, but just plain robots, consumer goods and military hardware :-B

That's all well and fine, but our buddy Magnus DOES transform. So he's got no business showing up naked and non-transforming.

Too bad though. Been looking forward to your pics if you managed to procure them. I was also considering those "Action" masters (just one btw)but the d@mn shipping killed me too.(despite the 50% off by hlj.
