IDW Transformers artist Andrew Griffith, regular on current The Transformers ongoing title, has updated his Tumblr with some concept work for the upcoming Generations Combiner Wars Leader Class Ultra Magnus (with Minimus Ambus) figure - specifically, the cockpit design, both inside and outside, and the interaction with Minimus in vehicle mode. Check it out below!

So a while back I got to work a bit on an upcoming Leader class toy version of Ultra Magnus from IDW’s More Than Meets The Eye. Since the toy has been revealed, I got permission from Hasbro to show off some of my art for it.

Just to be clear, the overall design of the toy was already done, based heavily on Nick Roche’s design for the book. What I was asked to do was to sketch up what the interior cockpit could look like within the confines of the space they had available for it. I worked with Hasbro to develop it, and they sent my art along to Takara-Tomy to use for the sculpt for the final product.

The cockpit for Minimus Ambus inside Ultra Magnus functions a bit different than James Roberts and Alex Milne worked out for MTMTE, but personally I think it’s pretty cool that Hasbro took inspiration from the comics and even went to the trouble of using the concept of Minimus “driving” Ambus at all to be pretty darn cool.

I was thrilled to work on this particular project.

Rad. I can't remember from all the toy fair pix so I wonder if those door panel monitors/consoles will be featured in the interior of the toy. Wouldn't that be cool?! Keep more of these concepts comin!

There's a little readout that says "CAST IN THE NAME OF PRIMUS, YEE NOT GUILTY".

I picked him up on sale recently too (I thought I posted a pic here, but it either got lost in the shuffle or I didn't hit "Submit"). The color scheme is really growing on me. The head sculpt is nice too, but I wish the colors were more toy/cartoon accurate.

I wonder how much of the detailing will making in the final product? Even MP UM's truck mode interior didn't sport that kind of molded detail.

Well, did MP Magnus have a driver? Legit question, because I don't feel like pulling up a review of him.

I find it cool that the Magnus Armor's cockpit is laid out like a battlemech cockpit from the BattleTech universe, with the joystick on the right side, throttle on the left side, and foot pedals (in battlemechs the foot pedals are for turning the machine, or both are pressed down to activate jump jets).

Finally after months of trying to find this toy. Earlier today Walmart.com relisted this G1 CW Megatron toy as back in stock. Finally was able to buy one.

Had to also order a $7 Hero Mashers Jetfire. to save $5 on shipping fees and qualify for free shipping. As $50 orders before tax qualify for free shipping.

Awesome! I'm glad you finally found one! I know you're waiting for the DX9 kit (as am I) and the ReproLabels are awesome. Posted a pic earlier.

They are completely worth it. I used my trusty Exacto knife from my scale model days, I find that easier than tweezers in the tight areas. Just make sure you have good lighting to make sure they line up well :D

I dunno. Honestly the only one I want is the chest label. I don't really care for the other bits....but that chest label is perfect.
