Awhile back we reported that there would be a 2 meter-tall statue of Optimus Prime produced by the company 86 Hero. Now we have learned over the past few year no Optimus Prime can go without a white repaint to become Ultra Magnus. Yep, you guessed it, there is now a white repaint of the 2 meter-tall Optimus Prime statue renamed Ultra Magnus. However, only one has been made, and Remy of Tfans.com has posted an image of Ultra Magnus here.

Just take a picture of the existing Prime statue and convert it to B&W.

Although it would be cool to have one of him and one prime on either side of a doorway.

First thought that ran through my head when I read the title for this article was "Gee I wonder if it's a repaint?". Lo and behold... it is..

The original Ultra Magnus toy was a car carrier. The cab connected to the trailer, which both combined to form the robot mode. The cab was a white Optimus Prime cab.

Just look at the Seibertron galleries.

There's a little more to that. One of the comics (DW?) had Ultra Magnus out of armor with a smoking gun.

It stuck

Well, more to it than that.
Shockwave killed Magnus, but he actually wasn't dead. He got up and walked with much difficulty and removed his armour piece by piece, eventually got to the chamber where Shockwave was going to kill Prime, took Prime's gun and fought Shockwave. It was kind of cool.

No Pic? and it's just a Re-Paint of Prime? Again? Not too surprised. It's funny, the original Toy, and the DW comics are the ONLY places you'll ever find Ultra Magnus Represented as a White redeco of Prime. Makes for interesting speculation for sure, but I want more OFFICIAL stories using that dynamic, and so far there have been NONE.

GEEZ!

At least the NP one would be worthwhile doing. Alter ego and a decep to boot!

Is that even a real picture? Given that it's Remy I feel stupid asking, he's come up with the goods in terms of images so many times and I don't really see him getting fooled, and certainly not posting anything maliciously, but the image just looks off somehow. Considering the size of the thing it should just look less flat, you know? Unless it's suffering from a 'dazzle camo' effect.

No, I remember Gen 1. He's only been his own figure once in RID. And even then he was Primes little bro and had issues. The only other 2 Magnus figures that weren't Prime were Energon (still a repaint but not of Prime) and G1 Titanium and that is damn near impossible to find. I love the character but Magnus has always been a Optimus repaint on some level. Deal.

Yah I know, I owned one when I was a kid. I never saw that white cab as Magnus himself...My childish mind converted it to the ghost of OP (lol).
