Transformers News: Takara Transformers Masterpiece MP-22 Ultra Magnus Text Translated


Main paragraph: Masterpiece #22 is confirmed to be Ultra Magnus. G1 toy was a combination of a Convoy same sized robot and a big body part which transforms into a car carrier. However, Masterpiece toy is going to make its transformation as shown in the cartoon series. The cab truck will still have its own robot mode, but it will be able to transform with the car carrier body as one. Its vehicle mode includes a cab truck in the same size as MP-10, tires and front grill will be the same parts. In addition, shoulder missile launcher will be removable, but it does not have to be removed in order to transform.

Pic 1 with Leader's Metrics: MP-10 Metrics can be stored inside its chest.

Pic 2: Truck mode (in the middle) - Carrier mode gimmick will include movable ramp.

Pic 3: This is the size comparison with MP-10. It is made to be very show accurate.

Continued 2nd Paragraph: MP-22 Ultra Magnus will be released around second half of December, selling price will be 19,440 Japanese yen ($190). (Actual available date and price may be changed.)

For the pic on the right: With respect to the G1 Toy, under the helmet, it will have a smaller head of Magnus (same as Optimus Prime).

This sounds like a very big undertaking, engineering-wise. Its own small-robot mode, but transforming with the trailer as a single part, ala the show? Sounds like more complex engineering than MP-9 Rodimus.

I suppose the implication is that there would be a redeco or two (Shining, Diaclone, Powered) to offset the work involved.

The good thing, of course, is that not being a licensed vehicle mode, a U.S. release seems like a slam-dunk, offering more opportunities to recoup.

But December seems so far away...

That is pure awesomesauce!
So it can pull of both, a white Optimus mode and a direct from vehicle to Ultra Magnus Transformation that just sounds incredibly cool.

I cannot wait to see colour pics of this! :D

Ugh, $190.00?? At least it's better than the pre-order prices I've been seeing floating around, but that's still a lotta' dough. So difficult to maintain this hobby.

Even after an early look, man, that thing is perfect. Sure, there's time for them to screw something up, but wow, I'm blown away. My only problem: I love Magnus and now I'm not sure there could ever be a better toy in the future.

I can't believe there are comments about the KFC one with a totally hollow cab and out of scale bot mode being better. If you think that, please send me whatever crazy pills you take, because they must give one hell of a buzz.

I think that's a fantastic price, and the HLJ preorder should put it around $155, or around the same amount as MP Soundblaster.

[/quote]im also a little worried about this, and surprised no one else is scrutinizing it. with how perfect everything is on this figure, this CAN NOT be his head. there has to be some explanation. when i first saw it i thought it was the back of his head. maybe?

I'm very interested in seeing how it can transform like the cartoon.

While I have great confidence about how incredible the combined Ultra Magnus will appear, I am very interested in seeing what the white Optimus Prime looks like. Hopefully it will have the blue face shield!

That's his head without the face on though.

This is his proper head:

You can see the "real" face in the other pictures and it's looking quite nice. The idea is you break the helmet apart to reveal this other head underneath - it's supposed to be Prime's original head sans mouthplate, I think...

So, if I am readingthis right, a Titaniums style Transformation with an optional removable cab robot that is not a partformer like the old City Commander set? If so, awesome!

Also, I'd really like me some Targetmasters, too bad they're in Japan, but Jolt is cool.

I'm guessing it's just an incomplete aspect of the prototype that isn't finished or something.

From what I'm hearing there is no white Optimus, it shares some parts with MP-10 but is specifically not just MP-10 plus armor. I'd still leave that as a rumor at this point though.

It's the sculpting underneath the proper Magnus face. Apparently an homage to this:

Looks like an "Easter egg" type of thing.

I agree with Scotty. Takara beat KFC to the ground so hard, I can't imagine any future versions of Citizen Stack are going to sell well.

Hasbro, are you listening? Here's a third opportunity to give us MP10 here in the states, just don't mess up and not include the trailer/armor. :BANG_HEAD:

Not sure who the others are trying to mimmick.


Funny you should ask, I can barely make out one of the names: Buzz Saw, out of Waspinator.


If it's Buzz Saw, then he needs purple, not blue.
