The display shows off how the whole line centres around customizable weapons. You can even use the flame effects in the micromaster cars to make it look like they are going super fast. Of course these are al hand painted prototypes so it is not indicative of th final deco. Chromia is a retool of POTP Moonracer but her combiner component may have been removed. Ultra Magnus is also quite the enigma. He seems to be a white prime covered in armour and while th robot mode is spot on G1, the truck mode is an homage to the original RID show.
Let us know what you think and if you give us a list of the Micromasters you see, we will update the article accordingly.

It was really Cobotron's list. He's the one who chose the top candidates, if h wants to redo it thats fine by me.
Well, I'd have to have this new one in hand to really determine that, but I'm not afraid of change or improvements, that's for sure.
And hey! Glad to see you back in action Amelie.

Yup. Looks to be fashioned very similarly to the MP Magnus.
There's also a Deluxe Hound, and a blue robot with red missiles or smokestacks sticking out of his shoulders, I can't make out to the far left. EDIT... That's the Deluxe Weaponizer. Whoever he is.
I still think it is a leader class figure and I actually prefer that way. As for the deluxe weaponizer, I think it is a combination of weapons from other figures. For example, the torso part seems to be from Ultra magnus, as you can see those wheels. It could also very likely to be the other way around, a deluxe figure that can be dissembled into weapons for other robots.

I wish there was a clear shot of robot mode Cog in this, instead of just having to pick out which weapon pieces are his parts, but he still interests me.
I...can't tell if the front of Chromia's alt mode has a peghole for a combiner HFG or armor. It might, but this angle doesn't help.
And here I thought more G1 would be boring same old...I mean, some of it is, but some of it is actually surprisingly interesting.
Now, um, Hasbro, question: where are the Decepticons?

Hasbro decided that, since there's 'brand unification' that they will do like Japanese toyline and only sell heroes.

Is chromia a repaint of moonraker?
Micromasters look to have same articulation as originals so why bother with new?

Literally, the best thing they could have done for a new Leader Ultra Magnus. Also very happy it's a leader class figure, as I always Imagine Ultra Magnus as one of, if not the biggest members of the Autobots, not including special cases such as city bots or combiners.
As Emgo always says when reviewing this guy: MAGNUS
