While he does look uncomfortably naked without all those panels snapped on, this is an amazingly nice and detailed looking figure. Unfortunately it's a deal-breaker for me... Any Transformer that can't actually transform is, for me, not really a Transformer, or worth collecting. Especially considering this thing's price tag.

My first thought was that there was a Matrix to go in his chest and another one to put on the display base... But if they are one and the same, you're right, this thing must be quite large. I could see how the huge price tag would start to make more sense if that was the case.

It is the same one, this thing is about two feet tall.
The price is due to the size and the fact that this is mostly diecast, plus heavy on paint.


Goddamn that thing just looks better with each pic, I wish I could aford him.

Cant wait for the first review of this figure...

Thus far, it seems like the metal armor is limited to the arms, the front of the legs and hips... Im thinking that MP1 may have as much metal content as this figure does. If that is the case, then I dont think the price is justified... masterpiece voltron, 40th anniversary mazinger z and MP-1 seem like such a bargain comparing their price point at their time of release.

I wonder what an MP-1 like figure would cost nowadays if the masterpiece line had honored that much metal content and size in all of their figures, maybe it would cost $300-450 dollars, who knows...

Cool figure nevertheless, nice display stand. Nice box, kinda like 40th anniversary mazingers, big box with smaller boxes inside to keep the figure and armor and accesories separate and protected...

Very nice! :D

ill second your "Goddam". i had no idea he was that big. what i love about this thing is: the glowing eyes and matrix, and the smokestacks... strange i know. but look at them!

It's crazy, it's huge, it speaks....sure I want one, but that price! Not to mention how insane shipping would be to New Zealand! I second the call for a review or three.

I had a hard enough time convincing my better half that I could get a Generations Metroplex from a friend at $X per pay!

Agree 100%, a transformer must transform... pass on this one too.

His website has been updated with four entire galleries of the figure.

Glad I ordered it. Looking forward to it. The engineering is amazing, the details are phenomenal, and it will immediately be the centrepiece of any room I put it into. Completely worth the $800 to me.

Disagree. I bet big money if you had a real doll sitting in the same room it would draw way more attention than Terminator Prime...

The 2015 Japan Dynamic Toy Show, taking place from February 6-8, revealed a new entry into the UM Ultimetal Line, the one featuring a giant diecast non transforming eletronic and fully articulated Optimus figure. This new entry is UM 03 Ultimetal Ultra Magnus.

This Ultra Magnus figure seems to be a white repaint of UM 01, Ultimetal Optimus Prime, in a similar color scheme to MP 02 Ultra Magnus. Judging from the packaging seen in the picture below, it seems to feature removeable Ultra Magnus Armour, in a similar yet much updated fashion to the G1 toy.

A battle damaged version of Ultimetal UM 01 Optimus Prime was also present at the show. This is probably UM 02.

The following pictures come from the Cybergundam Facebook page.

Hasbro and Takara should license out the name "Action Masters" for these types of products. The recent Gohkin Art Storm Roadbuster, Alpha Trion, Optimus Prime and Grimlock would have been phenomenal candidates for a licensed Action Masters sub-line (especially the latter 3 with their cartoon accuracy).
