And we have more Takara Tomy Transformers Masterpiece news this early morning, too! Thanks to fellow Seibertron.com user xMXUx, and the Cybergeeks Alliance Facebook page, another scan of the possibly the same magazine as this one has appeared, showing off one of MP-22 Ultra Magnus' features: the cab can separate from the trailer, but it is not necessarily a robot by itself. Check out the image below, and let us know if you have a translation handy!

Detaches out of necessity for the transformation or because it does form it's own little white bot?

Seriously, if it doesn't form a robot itself, I will most likely ragequit. If it isn't add-on armor, to me, it won't be worth the price...

So the cab can detach just for the sake of standard vehicle functionality, but is otherwise pointless since it doesn't turn into a white inner robot form.

BIG. FRICKIN'. DEAL! >:oP

Not pointless. It still transforms into the core of the robot mode.

You see that big hexagonal piece that forms the cab's roof? That's his butt flap in robot mode:

Which happens to be show-accurate:

Looks to me like the cab transforms into the torso (+head) while the trailer forms the rest of his body.

Detachable bot is detachable.

They said that it would be separate from the armor a looooooooooong time ago. Not sure how this is "new" news...

The image itself is what's new.

But it's still not gonna form its own separate robot mode.

See, that's the thing: we still don't know if it's a detachable bot.

It appears that it may just become the torso of the bot.

Seriously. I don't get why people want a white Optimus with armor. I think that is crap. It made sense to do that for G1 figures, but today? I want a fully transformable truck and trailer. It's why I got Citizen Stack and looks like I'll be getting this guy now. If it was a white Optimus, I would easily pass.

I still don't see how that's not pointless, a detachable cab has no purpose when it seemingly doesn't even need to separate for the transformation, so it just comes off for the sake of emulating a vehicle function, and giving false hope to the sense that this Magnus is a white Prime in armor.

I would love this MP Ultra Magnus to be a seperate white MP10 with the trailer that wraps around as this would give this MP the additional playability of a; White bot Magnus, b;Super mode/Ultra Magnus, c; Car transporter mode.
A triple changer!! :grin:

And here's Ultra Magnus! Once again from the Planet Iacon Facebook page we have better quality image of Takara Tomy's Transformers Masterpiece MP-22 Ultra Magus. Unfortunately he's not in full color like Bumblebee, but still some good looks at the grey mold prototype from some different angles. Check him out below:

I like it and will buy it. The only part that sticks out to me as odd are the lower legs, there are the legs and then a large gap and then a floating panel in front. Looks odd to me.

Hmm, the tires on his feet are fake... Wonder if that means there is to be changes. But then, I don't think the flap ass is going away, although I'm not that big of a hater of that thing, it's better than MP03's skirts or MP17's hollow legs IMHO.

Yeah, the butt flap is a bit bigger than it should be, but at least they got its shape right:

I would have preferred no homage than how they designed it. It sucks the way it hangs down that much. Any 3rd Party up for the challenge of making the first Transformer butt transplant? Seriously, I hope the flap is detachable because that is how I would like to display him.

The flap is way too big for its own good. It's surprising how good the rest of the figure is until you get to that one piece. It's got to have been some budgetary setback or something if they couldn't find a way to make it fold in just one more time for a better size/positioning, cuz it's hard to believe that it being that large and hanging that much over his whole back section down to his knees was planned from the start.

Like with MP Prime, the human figures can also ride in Magnus' cab.

Can anyone confirm please if Magnus will come with his own Matrix?

I have a Rodimus matrix but do not have MP 10 so this is quite important for me if the Rodimus matrix would not fit in MP 22 if he does not come with his own one.

Yeah. It's too bad the way the flap has turned out. In the concept image, the flap doesn't look too bad, but it hangs too low on the prototype. Looks like there is a line on the cab roof in the alt mode. I wonder if it originally was going to fold in half.

Two things I still wonder - doe UM have a waist swivel? If not, why? Do his shoulders have any more articulation other than spin laterally?

I do like the arm transformation. Different from the original. I don't like the chunkiness of the toy though.

According to a part from the Transformers Generations 2014 Volume 1 book, it seems that Ultra Magnus was started by Hasui but then handed over to and finished by Kobayashi, since Hasui couldn't figure out how to make the toy as a white MP-10 with trailer armor work within the budget they were given to make the toy. This would explain why the cab looks a lot like the MP-10 cab but ultimately isn't just MP-10 with armor, as well as why there are some less-than-show-accurate aspects about this robot mode design since it was Hasui who's been giving us all these super show-accurate MPs since MP-10.

So Magnus was a collaboration of sorts.

Someone from TFW2005 translated the interview:

I wonder if Hasui will do more MP figures.
