This is a can of worms. ;)

What most people agree on is that he lost one arm in battle (probably against Magmatron) and replaced it with a prosthetic.

As far as I know, it's only vaguely alluded to, and never explicitly shown in the anime or manga.

I love it, it augments the character of Big Convoy and makes his toy pretty unique. I don't know of any other toy that has an event or story element sculpted into it! :P Even the fingers are different on the other arm!

Do the small vehicles still go in the back or did that feature fail to carry over from G1?

Well, you see, now that he's a beast, that feature of Ultra Magnus is a little different ... :HEADHURTS:

This rendition of Ultra Magnus holds 2 scout sized turds in his rear storage compartment. ;)

Is that so??? Thanks for the info! I also find it to be pretty cool, and this is an awesome mold!

I don't know who looked at Big Convoy and said "We need an Ultra Magnus version of this!" but I just love it. If I get the subscription service, this guy and Scourge are the only ones I'll be keeping. No disrespect to anybody, but obscure G1 characters aren't my cup of tea, since I wasn't born in that era.

TRUKK NOT HEPHALUMP?

I think it looks pretty decent. Gotta say though, were I to get one, he'd be in robot mode 97.319% of the time.

You mean like most other Transformers? :P

The colors are sick, and trunk formers are the best...

I was hoping that we'd get a new head sculpt for this guy - something sans face-plate. Still, as transforming blue mammoths go, this is one of the best I've seen in recent years.

This thing looks great, and I'm glad to see they didn't remold or try to cover up his Maximal symbol on the chest.

Maximals forever!!! :MAXIMAL:

There is another, but the diversity of color on Ultra Mammoth looks much better in my opinion :).

This is the one I've been looking forward to the most. Finally; another figure for my Beast Wars shelf!
