NEUTRIZOR has sent us an e-mail regarding an auction for a rare Japanese exclusive release of the Generation 1 Ultra Magnus mold. This variation is called "Shining Magnus", or sometimes "Matrix Glow Magnus" and is based on how Ultra Magnus appeared on screen during the Transformers: The Movie when he received the Matrix. While in the movie that was just a lighting effect and not an actual change in colour Ultra Magnus got repainted by Takara anyway.
The figure comes in a light yellow plastic, yellow paint and translucent yellow plastic and is limited to just 800 figures worldwide.
If you're interested you can view the yahoo Japan auction by clicking here or here for a translated version, the auction accepts bids from international buyers.

Stay tuned to seibertron.com for all your Transformers related news!

I would actually really like to own this figure, but I'm never going to find one in my price range. I paid enough for the Diaclone colored version. I still don't understand why he's yellow, when anytime I've watched TF: The Movie, when he catches the Matrix, he's bathed in BLUE light. and now that I go back and check, it was Hot Rod that was bathed in blue light, not Magnus.... This figure doesn't make SENSE!!!!!! Why do I want it????? :BANG_HEAD:

When in the movie did he look like this? I don't recall any such lighting effect done in the film that made him look all yellow.

The only part in the movie were magnus is yellowish is when he explodes on Junkion after being destroyed by the Sweeps. Even then, that's more orange ;-)

Perhaps this 'Shining Yellow' Magnus was off camera, on a storyboard, or never made it past the cutting room floor.

He was never like this in the movie, but it is based on him holding the matrix for a while in the movie. It's more of a what-if form, depicting the energy of the Matrix flowing through Ultra Magnus' body. Just so you know, in Japan, eradiating pure energy is almost always yellow, look at Dragonball Z.

That's weird, then, because Hot Rod holding the matrix was all 'blue.' I suppose it's all up to imagination and/or an inconsistent rule of thumb.

Or the fact that Magnus was blue to begin with. :P

But yes, it's either yellow, white or blue-ish.
