No, Hasbro started the trend to repaint EVERY Prime into Magnus for marketing, while DW just did it once for their story. Hasbro has the bigger fault.

why on earth don't they make his head look like the ultramagnus that doesn't look like an albino prime you know the blue helmet with the long silver antennas and large blue eyes!

It looks like it has cool paint applications at least... but yeah, I'm going to have to agree with most of the posters here. If I have one fanboy complaint, it would be repainting any Optimus related toy white to deem it Ultra Magnus in recent years.

Though I also feel kinda bad feeling that way seeing that I like the current Starscream/Skywarp/Thundercracker (hopefully soon) repaints.

Yay, another Albino Prime. Glad to see that this lame trend is still being beaten to death.

Hopefully these white Primes stop selling and we actually get the real Ultra Magnus back. It was a cool concept in the comics but it is getting very annoying in toy land. Ultra Magnus is one of my favorite characters and needs to be done justice...

I don't know why they havent made the Masterpiece Ultra Magnus trailer. Have the trailer become the body armor that fits onto the White Prime/Magnus and you got gold (just like G1). I guess I would actually have to buy both those. Come on Takara I am asking you to make me poor here.

Primus knows this would happen, Prime comes along & then we get Ultra Magnus. Give it a rest.

Ok i seem to remember magnas lookind diferent the G1 toy was indeed a re paint but they hid it behind a exosuit of sort and a snap on helment with a diferent face so why is this a white prime

First other then the first toy the repaints did not start until after the DW issue. Also we the fans at the time thought it was so cool to finally see Magnus with no armor, look what it got us. Now to think of it maybe we should blame ourselves :-?

the last decent magnus toy to be released was for Energon, and even that was a repaint but at least not of prime. plus everyone wanted him to be UM in the english version anyway

Technically the origanal Magnus was a repaint too (unlike Prime/Convoy which was the same colours as the diaclone version, the diaclone version of the Magnus mold was a completly different colour).
As far as I know the only mold that was truly designed for the charecter (before the titainium one) was the RiD one.

I'll help. Im so sick of this "White Prime is Magnus" bullshit. It was ok the first few times but now its old. I understand that the first Magnus toy was a white prime but he at least had that trailer mech thing and a new head. If they want to keep makeing white primes magnus then at least give hime something diffrent like a trailer that combines with him like G1 or a diffrent head and weapons.

While I am a sucker for all things Magnus (Prime repaints and all) I just don't know what I'd do with a giant Magnus head. Maybe I could use it as a hat rack or something.

I'm now officially pissed at Transformers G1 comic vol.2 because of that, all we get now is effing Optimus Prime repaints!!!!

*@#$ing Lame!!!!
I know the idea here is that they can get more mileage out of the Prime mold, but don't you think they would sell more, or at least as much as Prime, if it was an actual Magnus bust?

No. They wouldnt. Magnus isnt as popular as Prime, never will be.

Bah, that's Anti-Hate Plague Prime. All that happened is they took back all of the unsold Prime's and repainted them white.

Ironically, I want to see an Ultra Magnus repaint as Optimus Prime.
