Transformers G1 Ultra Magnus New Commemorative Reissue Version Has Tall Stacks and Short Missiles!
Jack - Friday, December 07, 2012


I don't know how this happened, but I think fans are going to approve, and not if you already got yours, Hasbro released a new production run of the G1 Ultra Magnus Commemorative Reissue that is a new version. The popular reissue is now back in stock with all of the original accessories, including full length smoke stacks and short missiles. Has the era of impotent Transformers ended? The figure is in-stock now for $79.99 USD at bigbadtoystore.com

Ultra Magnus’ accessories include his laser gun, missile launchers and missiles, small robot fists, large robot fists, large robot head, cab connectors, and chest shield.

Ultra Magnus is characterized as the archetypal soldier, a stoic warrior with unsurpassed courage who is disinclined towards the prospect of leadership. A large powerful robot, he possesses launchers capable of hitting a target 30 miles away. In Transformers: The Movie, Optimus Prime passes the Matrix to Ultra Magnus; the latter, believing himself unworthy of the role of leader, accepts the mystic vessel reluctantly. Soon after, Ultra Magnus rallies the remaining Autobots as the Decepticons, now led by Galvatron, launch a follow-up attack against Autobot City. Piloting the vehicle mode Cyclonus, Galvatron, eager to gain access to the Matrix of Leadership, resolves to destroy Ultra Magnus. Dividing their ranks, the Autobots board a pair of shuttles and withdraw from Earth. On the Planet of Junk, Magnus makes a valiant stand again Galvatron and the Sweeps to buy escape time for his comrades. Failing to open the Matrix and unleash its power, Magnus is swiftly blasted apart by the Sweeps. In the aftermath of the battle, however, Magnus’ remains are collected and reconstructed by the Junkions.

So, I got the Ultra Magnus that I ordered from BBTS. The information provided in this news is incorrect. Ultra Magnus has the short smokestacks and long missiles. The copyright does say 2012, so it's not an old release.

Makes no difference anymore. It is right here to buy in the USA for a nice price.

Actually it's still a mystery as to why TRU MP OP got to keep his stacks, collapsable or not, they're still much longer what safety standards would normally call for. The only reasonable explanation is a change in classification which would reclassify MP OP from being a childs toy to an adu... read more

I suspect that TRU MP Optimus Prime got to keep the long stacks because the stacks are designed to move up and down.

Don't get too excited. My understanding is that Hasbro made these for the Asian market so it makes sense that they wouldn't be prone to US safety standards. Long missiles are still a safety requirement in the US. The short stacks are another story, TRU MP Optimus has long stacks. Emerje

Ooh, neat. I got the Japanese reissue years ago, but I'll buy this one, now that I know it's got the proper smokestacks and missiles. It's Christmas 1986 all over again, only this time the wheels are rubber and Ultra Magnus' face is painted.

Imaginarium Art has posted a new render to their Facebook page revealing an upcoming statue. Inspired by the animated Transformers The Movie, the statue depicts Grimlock and Wheelie fighting off a pack of Sharkticons in a very dynamically arranged piece. This appears to be the payoff to a post from back in November where they showed off various angles of a high detail Grimlock render, which we can see now was being designed as the centerpiece to this statue. Pricing and release details TBD, but keep reading to get a good look at the renders!
Just when we thought we have seen it all, Transformers make the high-fashion scene at the 2017 Fall Menswear and Pre-Fall Womenswear Fashion show in Milan, Italy. Designer moschino was there with a whole line of clothing that feature none other than the original G1 Transformers. Based on original box artwork, There's more than meets the eye with these designs that are quite extreme, even by GeeWun standards.
Dr. Tess Hightower, wife of actor Richard Gautier, has reported to Facebook that Gautier passed away quietly last night at the age of 85. Gautier was likely best known to readers of this site as the voice of Rodimus Prime in the third season of the original The Transformers cartoon as well as Serpentor on GI Joe: A Real American Hero. He also had a long career of onscreen performances - most notably Hymie the robot on Get Smart - and was among his other talents a gifted caricaturist as evidenced by his website. TFormers offers its sincerest sympathies to his family, friends, and fans for their loss today.
Transformers @ The Moon has posted yet another tape of G1 dialogue! This one is a special treat, because it's from the episode that would come to be known as "Fire In The Sky," in which the character of Skyfire was introduced... but here, in the original unmodulated recording sessions, the name is given as Jetfire throughout! Keep reading to hear a lot of unused G1 dialogue!
Transformers At The Moon has returned to posting their recently-acquired tapes of G1 cartoon audio! For the most part this video is "SOS Dinobots," featuring some great unmodulated growls and snarls from Gregg Berger, Neil Ross, and Frank Welker. But also, the video opens with a clip from "Fire In The Sky" with Starscream referring to his old friend as Jetfire! Keep reading for the video, plus a link to the transcript of the dialogue and voice director Wally Burr's instructions!
