Site sponsor Kapow! Toys has shared a magazine scan on their Facebook page that gives us some fresh looks at Takara Tomy's eagerly awaited Transformers Masterpiece MP-22 Ultra Magnus. These images give us a look at the inside of his cab, which can hold both Spike and Daniel who are also pictured, plus a secondary face hidden under the standard Ultra Magnus face. Check 'em out below:

Seeing them inside Ultra Magnus has me expecting a repaint of Magnus in his "disguise" colors from "The Ultimate Weapon".

Well, after Diaclone Ultra Magnus, "The Killing Jar" reverse colors Ultra Magnus, Hate Plague Ultra Magnus...point is, milk the s#!t out of this mold for repaints Takara, cuz it looks even better with each pic!

MP Ultra Magnus seems to be returning (a bit) to the MP01 design aesthetic where extra little details are built-in to the design. I miss MPs having a little more die-cast, chrome wheels etc., rubber-tires (somewhat), and extra opening communication panels, & clear plastic car-lights. And as much as I like all the car-bots being in-scale (except Bumblebee-a little too small), I wish the line had been done at MP01 scale.
Anyway, I've seen in other pics that his butt-flap folds up a little bit more in bot-mode and doesn't look like a long shirt-tail. Well at least it has a real purpose as a roof panel for Spike & Daniel. It does look like MP Magnus has a neat little interior for the humans!

Agreed....I've have been fine seeing a white redo of MP Prime who could combine with his trailer. As it is, he's a cool figure, but a bit chunky.

Kind of weird that they retained the head with some references to the original Diaclone design (check the half face plate)

I wish Magnus' "amazon exclusive" accessory was a pair of tiny Constructicons that he could hold in his hands, like this:

I can't wait. I'm also looking forward to the inevitable repaints. It should be interesting to see which ones they do. I'd like to get Shining and Diaclone versions!

The Powered Convoy colors are pretty much a given as a "Movie Preview" release. They've done that with both the G1 and the PVC figures. Maybe as MP-22P?

I could also see them doing the Black Hole version as a convention exclusive.

Man it'd be really awesome if they did the Diaclone version with his little "Scamper"-like figure that he originally came with.

That's what I was thinking but man that looks horrid.

Between Hasbro or Takara, I could also easily see one of them doing a toy accurate version with chrome and other toy details.

Once again from the CYBERGEEKS Alliance Facebook page, we have scans from Transformers Generations 2014 Volume 2 that give us new looks at Takara Tomy's Masterpiece MP-22 Ultra Magnus. Quite a bit of good info in these images. We get a full 360 degree look at the figure in full color, size comparison with Masterpiece Rodimus, transformation sequence, Spike and Daniel mini figures, and his alternate faces. Enjoy the images mirrored below:

Still not pleased that the cab is attached to the trailer; as amazing as it looks transformed. It doesn't feel accurate because it's not a separate transformer and armor set.

That's because they went for cartoon-accuracy. Ultra Magnus never appeared in his white Prime-looking robot mode despite the toy having one. (considering Prime was killed off, a good decision). The cab does separate, but that's it.

And I do hope the red bumper isn't final. At least cover it in chrome if they can't change the plastic color layout.

I love the overall look of the figure and the way it transforms. I just cannot get over the way he looks from behind though. He is too much of a rectangle/chunky when viewed from the back.
