I think, based on pictures we've seen before, that they collapse further into the shoulder pads to look less awkward.

Seems to be twofold:
The shoulders are pushed down to fit him in the box
AND
Hasbro stock photographers can't transform the toys well

EDIT: Okay I read his publicity blurb on BBTS and it's kind of funny
Courage is Stronger When Combined!

Who is he combining with, Minimus Ambus? I don't know if him sitting inside, having no visible impact on the outward appearance and function of the toy, qualifies as "combining."
The TRANSFORMERS Generations Leader class Ultra Magnus is rendered in incredible detail and with impressive conversions.

INCREDIBLE DETAIL!
IMPRESSIVE CONVERSIONS! (that are more or less the same as all Ultra Magnus toys of this style.)
This large, feature-packed LEADER scale action figure features a firing projectile, massive weaponry and working vehicle features.

Hype to English translation: "working vehicle features"=rolling wheels and a turning cab
Figure converts in 15 or more steps and includes a Collector Card.

15 or more? Why can't you just say how many steps it converts in?

I dunno, I just love marketing speak. Every little detail is the COOLEST EVER and you're a LOSER if you don't have this toy. It amuses me. I'm not saying he isn't an awesome toy, but the blurb kind of oversells him.

Purely design-wise, yes, it's accurate (more or less). But in the comics he has a blue waist and red thighs, rather than all that white.

Another Magnus? The excessive reuse of G1 characters is really getting ridiculously out of control, now...

Don't care what the IDW haters say - Minimus Ambus is cute!

Preordered!

They probably worded it this way because Hasbro wants people to think of Ultra Magnus and Minimus Ambus as two independent characters. They said one of the reasons why Ambus can't ride inside in truck mode is so it didn't look like Magnus was just a mech suit when in the comic that's exactly what he is.

He has a firing projectile? I thought all four were fake, which one fires?

15 or more? Why can't you just say how many steps it converts in?


I'm guessing it depends on if you include Ambus into the mix or not.

Blue waist and red thigh? Smart bet that's what the Tomy version will look like.I'll wait (gives my wallet a chance to recover from all the butt hurt it's been experiencing.

The last G1 Ultra Magnus toy that turned from car carrier into red, white, and blue robot (other than the Masterpiece) was the 6" Titanium figure from 2007. That figure was a floppy mess, and the Masterpiece is in a different league of price, intricacy, and aesthetics. There have been a few White Optimus Primes but this is the first time there has been a proper Classics-style Ultra Magnus.

Still on the fence with this one. I have the TFA version of UM, which I still think is the best made to date. And this one doesn't have a hammer - I thought that was kind of UM's 'signature weapon' now...

Edit: See below - guess he DOES have a hammer...

I think he does come with a hammer. :-?

Edit:


Had to dig. :D

Check the video above. It's formed from his gun and shoulder rocket launchers.
(Yes, hammering your enemies with a hammer made from rockets. Because that's how Magnus deals with things)
