It's probably going to be the new voyager Prime with add on armor. This makes me sad since that new prime looks like crap. I'm prepared to eat my words, but man it looks awful.

I honestly like to have a Leader Generations Ultra Magnus that would be a G1 hommage with his own little twist. Like the recent Jetfire Leader.

It would be easier on my wallet than the 200$+ MP.

Sorry if I've missed this, but is the U.S. getting MP Ultra Magnus through a regular big box store (i.e., TRU)?

There has been no word of a Hasbro release of MP Ultra Magnus.

Not annouced yet. It's still a Japan exclusive. Still, a North American MP Magnus would certainly be possible. I predict at least 125$+tx. The box will be in English only because it's way too hard to put some French and Spanish on a MP box. It will be, as usuall, a TrU exclusive. Everybody will be able to buy it except us Québécois because of that stupid language issue. Problem that TrU will still refuse to fix. Scalpers will raid the stores. As a result, Magnus will only be available on Ebay for 200$+. In the end, most people will say "fawk it" and just buy the Takara one.

Honestly, I hope not. I hate that mold for Prime. Could it look ok if covered in armour? Maybe, but I'd rather see a full new figure.


Hope not, Also.

Don't want to see any smaller cab-bot that parts-forms combines with a Armor trailer to form a leader class toy.

Would rather see a Generations one piece big Leader scale Ultra Magnus toy that just transforms back and forth.

I doubt it'll be that good. I think it'll be a simple white and blue repaint.

I'm not sure how people are making the jump from the "Generations Leader Ultra Magnus" rumor to "Voyager Prime repaint with armor" speculation. One is not like the other...

Hasbro seems to be playing it real safe with G1 homages at this point. I can't see the current team re-writing the book on Ultra Magnus.

People really want the old white Prime cab inner robot on this toy, and using the new Voyager Prime mold as a base is but one of several ways that could be done.

I get that's what people would want, but then I imagine the description wouldn't be "Leader Ultra Magnus."

The CW Voyager Prime mold is made to accommodate combination with 4 smaller bots, not necessarily a trailer. Given the simplified route Hasbro has been traveling, we're more likely to get a standard leader class blue, white, and red figure.

That's just my own speculation, given the zero information we have besides the rumor.

From the thread all way on the bottom:

1 of 30: SDCC 2013 Metroplex
2 of 30: SDCC 2013 Shockwave's Laboratory
3 of 30: Platinum Edition Ultra Magnus
4 of 30: Platinum Edition Grimlock vs. Decepticon Bruticus
5 of 30: ACGHK 2013 Metroplex
6 of 30: CybCon 2013 Shockwave's Laboratory
7 of 30: CybCon 2013 Beast Hunter Optimus Prime
8 of 30: MP-01 Masterpiece Acid Storm
9 of 30: MP-02 Masterpiece Soundwave
10 of 30: Platinum Edition Predaking
11 of 30: Construct-Bots Predaking
12 of 30: Platinum Edition Optimus Prime (Year of the Horse)
13 of 30: Platinum Edition Starscream (Year of the Horse)
14 of 30: Age of Extinction First Edition Optimus Prime
15 of 30: MP-05 Masterpiece Sunstorm
16 of 30: Transformers (2014) Protectobot Evac Squad
17 of 30: Transformers (2014) Protectobot Emergency Response
18 of 30: Age of Extinction Slog (G1 Deco)
19 of 30: SDCC 2014 Knights of Unicron set
20 of 30: Platinum Edition Breakout Battle
21 of 30: Generations Jetfire
22 of 30: Age of Extinction Evolution 2-pack Bumblebee
23 of 30: Age of Extinction Evolution 2-pack Optimus Prime
24 of 30: Age of Extinction Evolution 2-pack Grimlock
25 of 30: Age of Extinction Evolution 2-pack Dinobot Slug
26 of 30: Age of Extinction Evolution 2-pack Strafe
27 of 30: MP-04 Masterpiece Prowl

28 of 30: Platinum Edition Silver Knight Optimus Prime
29 of 30: Age of Extinction Silver Knight Optimus Prime & Grimlock
30 of 30: Generations Wingblade

Again, don't bother with it. I think #16 and #17 have proven the randomness of the list.

Agreed... it is such a random list. It's like they just arbitrarily decided to number 30 completely random, unrelated things they were releasing during the year. Odd.

So why are we talking about Leader Ultra Magnus in this thread? It's not going to be one of the Thrilling 30.

We talk about all Generations in this thread. Message me or any of the staff members if you have an issue with it.

A leader Magnus would be cool, especially if it has a g1/IDW feel similar to leader Jetfire...

My question is that there are already 2 leader Megatrons coming, would they release 3 or 4 leaders in one year?

They actually have in the past, though at least one was a retool. Here's the list of what's currently confirmed:

1) Megatron
2) Thundercracker (retool of Jetfire)
3) Armada Megatron (retool of Megatron)

Releasing 2 all-new Leader molds per year is not unheard of, and given 2 of the 3 announced are retools, it's not too far of a stretch that Ultra Magnus is planned, retool or not.

id like leader magnus to be a white prime voyager cab with armor, and then can can release a voyager minimus ambus that would be compatible with said armor, best of both worlds

*Hugs RID Ultra Magnus* I'll never replace you, no matter how floppy your joints get...

Still, this is interesting. Hope we get an actual original mold rather than a Prime retool.

I wonder if this will decrease the secondary-market costs for the FP City Commander set?
