The details on Takara Tomy's recently revealed Transformers Masterpiece MP-22 Ultra Magnus continue to roll in! Site sponsor Robotkingdom has posted a list of accessories that will accompany the figure, which will include both Spike and Daniel minifigures. As expected based on the prototype images there will be a face swap feature, plus alternate fists. They go on to state he will be a new mold, and the cab does not have to detach from the trailer for transformation.

Excited alright but does that mean no white Prime? (The no need to disconnect the cab description)

Spike again? That is now three Masterpiece Spike figures. Why not use Carly?

I imagine it'll be adult Spike and Daniel with their "futuristic" white suits from the Animated 1986 movie, the 3rd season and Headmasters.

That's what I figured, too. I just hope that they have the Dr Wu Partners level of detail, and not MP-10 Spike's level of detail.

I'm not sure if they're being coy so that they can reveal the inner robot later with great fanfare, or because there is no inner robot. Sigh. The suspense.

Can someone recommend the best deal for this guy to the USA? I'm so tired of the ridiculous markups!

Yep. Must have. Definitely must have. I hope the inner robot is Minimus ambus and not just a Prime repaint. Though, I always liked the White repaint of prime, but only because it was like the silver alloy-coated Prime from the Season 3 episode "The Return of Optimus Prime". :-B

I'll be among the first to own this figure.

Do we even know for sure the cab transforms? As in, into a proper, stand-alone robot? :-?

good news to know what will be included, another possible good new, according to big bad toy store there's a price drop, here's the email I got a few minutes ago:

Hi - We have just learned more about the pricing of the MP-22 Ultra Magnus. The figure is set to sell in Japan for 19,440 yen retail. We have adjusted your preorder from $279.99 down to $189.99! Please note that the official solicitation has not yet been sent out from Takara, and the 19440 Yen retail price is subject to change. If the retail price goes up, we will need to adjust our pricing up proportionally, but we hope that will not be the case. Thanks so much for preordering from BBTS and we can't wait for the MP-22 to arrive!

Thanks!

It honestly doesn't seem likely. This new info states 'totally new mold item'. That can be read to mean it's all new, which omits an MP 10 repaint. 2 out of 3 translations of the magazine scan state no cab robot, and the article goes to length to describe the cab 'shares parts with MP-10' like the grill and tires etc. If it was MP 10, it's a no brainer it would share parts :lol: . That plus scrutinising the pics suggests no inner robot from the cab...

Although...

This here does say it does not 'need' to detach to transform. Maybe the cab 'can' detach if you want to, but is not a requirement to get him to Ultra Magnus mode. Maybe the cab can turn into a robot of some sort, but isn't an MP-10 repaint. Maybe I'm a little obsessed with this topic now and need a good walk in the sun...

I'm leaning toward it having no inner cab robot from what we have so far. But admittedly what we have is very little, so who knows. I mean, why alternate fists? Who saw that coming? :-?

Sabrblade wrote:@hinomars19 - I think you're mistaking me for things said and asked by Doctor McGrath and TimothyR. All I've said was some clarity on the Japanese text and noting the cartoon-focused nature of the MP line. The other two were asking (out of innocent curiosity, in Doctor McGrath's case) about why folks want a White Prime and (in TimothyR's case) defending the show-accurate nature of this figure. I was doing neither.


Ahh, then you most certainly deserve an apology. It was indeed TimothyR's comment I was referring to, the quote headers got me confused as one of your posts was in there. Not an easy mistake to make given I know how the layouts of quoting work (not like I'm a newbie here), so there is no excuse-I apologise! I'm usually much more careful, but I will be doubly so from now. (I'll also edit my original post)

Sorry again, especially since the mix up was over such a harsh backlash!

On that note, defending the show accurate nature of the figure is certainly not a problem to me. I just didn't feel right about the way TimothyR's comment went about it.

Again, sorry Sabrblade.

I think UM looks great. Only things i would nit pick at this point would be that back kibble (should be able to fold up) and the eyes. It's looks like his eyes are too small from what they were in the cartoon and in TFTM. I think he loses a lot of his signature look without those big baby blues. Hopefully we will get a closer shot of his face and will prove me wrong.

In our second piece of MP-22 Ultra Magnus news for the day, site sponsor BigBadToyStore has notified those with existing pre-orders that the price has been dropped from $279.99 to $189.99! While this is certainly welcome news, keep in mind the official solicitation from Takara Tomy has yet to be received, and the price is still subject to further change. The big guy is tentatively scheduled to arrive in December, of course that to is subject to change.

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.
