Hopefully he's able to have that trailer removed if needed...not a fan of that "citizen Stack" version. For $200 I'd like my OG style Magnus please! ;)

I think it is the reason we are seeing the prototype so early too.

First off, why does the 'Click Here to Comment' link for Lawson G1-colored Grimlock lead to the Ultra Magnus thread?

Anyway, MP Magnus news is good. Not sure why he needs two sets of fists, can anybody think of a scene where something weird/different happened to his hands?

I also like the fact that he will probably come with spacesuit Spike and Daniel. I'm guessing the Spike that comes with Bumblebee will not be removeable from the Exosuit, so these figures will give alternate display options. Also, MP Rodimus never came with a Daniel figure like I thought he should, so we'll finally be able to recreate that famous beginning scene from the movie. :D It would also be really smart of Takara to make it so they can both sit in Magnus' cab. I might just repurpose the MP-10 Spike as Sparkplug instead. Except his shirt is wrong, but whatever.

There is no inner cab robot, as there is no INNER CAB!! The cab, as you can see in the photo, folds up and attaches to Magnus's back when he is in robot mode. I'm betting the cab is just mostly a hollow shell, designed to be in the same proportions and look exactly like MP-10's cab.

Because the original news stories this thread was created for was a trio of news items from the same magazine; MP Ultra Magnus, AOE G1 Grimlock, and the new Campaign Microns.

lets try and clear this up a bit.. look at the cab in the photo of the prototype.. it doesn't share the same panel lines as MP10 does.. and it certainly doesn't have enough panel lanes to suggest that there's a robot folded up into the cab.

next.. look at the magnus robot mode.. look at the waist, there's clearly no inner robot there.

as of now, going off of the majority of the translations and the visual evidence.. you've got to come to the conclusion/the realization that there is no inner robot mode.

for me that's perfectly fine.. he was never like that in the show why in the world would he have an inner white magnus for the masterpiece version?

i do quite enjoy parts-formers.. but i enjoy accuracy more.. so, this is perfect for me.

quick question....

UM comes with a spike and daniel. assuming theyll be the same scale as spike from MP10. so does anyone know if the MP10 spike fits in MP09 hotrod, meaning MP22's daniel will fit in hotrod?

sorry if this question made anyone cross eyed :lol:

While the evidence does suggest that, until we see more from TT or in hand images, I won't be forming any conclusion.

And as they just said, you "don't need to remove the cab to transform him into robot mode" ... It's a bit of a stretch but I and my 10 year old self will continue to hold out that little bit of hope.

Okay, where's the discussion for Grimlock?

Well, he's already got articulated fingers so he can point. I guess maybe they might have an addition set of hands with more articulation, but I can't see why they'd do that instead of just building that articulation into the first pair.

Haha, well yes, I was joking. He can indeed point with these hands. My only guess right now would be...a fixed pose pair more suitable for holding a Matrix? Until we know more about what this toy does, it's the only thing I can think of logically at this point.

I can see something getting ready to happen. The takara version won't have the naked white prime where as the hasbro version will be the naked white prime only.

I'm with you, Burn. All the pics and evidence suggest otherwise, but it would be really nice for the inner robot to exist.

Someone, please translate, STAT!

This was found on the MP-22 product page at BBTS:

Is this indicating an inner robot, or is it simply an overlay of MP-10 on the MP-22 silhouette?

Must... know... :HALUC:

Looks to me like somebody just took the preexisting Ultra Magnus sihlouette from a magazine, faded it, then took that image of MP-10 Convoy, and slapped it on top of the sihlouette for a "what if" or a "wishful thinking" case.

In other words, a photoshop of these two:
