I really hope it doesn't mean Impactor is just an Ironhide retool and comes with the same hammer in Magnus white and blue. Would they really include two different giant hammers in the same line? Doesn't seem likely.

Didn’t the first Galvatron toy concept “evolve” from megatron to Galvatron? I’d like to see that toy become reality because for a G1 toy it looked pretty sweet.

It could mean that they reffer to the fact that in Prime, Magnus was a wrecker and used a hammer. He didnt have a hammer in G1 (when he wasnt a wrecker) so maybe thats it. Still a wired thing to say.

Because he’s usually always affiliated with them. Who knows maybe his packaging bio states he’s leader of them back on Cybertron.

They did it in prime. First Magnus came with a gun that tuned into a hammer and voyager Magnus cane with the forge of Solus and that giant weaponizer did too.

If a gimmick of the line is gun turning into melee weapon there’s not too many options. Axe, sword, spear knife and hammer.

I'd guess the hammer they are referring to is probably the weapon mode of a yet to be released Battle Master.

Roller maybe? Or would be a fun little homage to the roller that came with powered convoy

Because the Aligned version of Ultra Magnus was leader of the Wreckers and wielded a hammer. Plus a hammer is the main part of the Wreckers insignia. :WRECKERS:

Holy SCRAP! Well, I feel like a real Sam Ham. :roll:
I can't believe I've never noticed that hammer in the insignia before.

My only excuse is I just don't spend that much time on the fiction, and we don't have a ton of toys sporting that badge.

We can thank the 2001 BotCon fiction for that hammered insignia design.

"Battle Master that turns into a hammer" would be my first thought about that hammer comment too. I mean, when you have a "guys who turn into weapons" class in the line, it kinda paints a picture.

I'm still just really happy about Cog. HasTak making him saves me from having to make one myself, and he even comes with a G1-accurate gun for Cerebros. The one knock against him is that his other gun is in fact also Cerebros' gun and not his own gun, but that's very much outweighed by the good points.

That was not the first Galvatron toy concept. Galvatron's first toy concepts were taken directly from his initial movie design, as with every other new-mold TFTM character (and he would never have been planned to have a Walther mode; US retailers were souring on realistic gun toys by the time 1986 rolled around). That's a later design concept by someone who also conceived of a Megatron-Skywarp triple changer, and it would have been a Japan-only toy.

Also, that's not an evolution gimmick so much as straight-up triple changing

Considering the existence of Lionizer it is very likely that the 'Magnus Hammer' (to use it's name from Animated, even if it won't be the same) is a new Battlemaster character, as I suspect melee-themed Battlemasters could include not only a sword (like Lionizer) but also an axe, spear, hammer and maybe a mace or morningstar of some kind.

So I won't have to try to fashion him a hammer out of Cog's body parts? Sweet.

Really? I cover lots of fiction, being staff for this site, and the only time I saw him associated to them was in Prime.

There may be another instance but i highly doubt its a usual affiliation. Definitely not in the G1 lore i am familiar with.

I believe Magnus may have been leader of the Wreckers at one point in the UK G1 Marvel comic.

Magnus has ties to the Wreckers in the Marvel UK timeline, which formed the basis for his association with the group later on.

Im more interested in the hover mode Prime has, is there any thing to back this up?

Also kinda glad there is no hammer as I always thought it was a strange addition to his character.
