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.

An enterprising fan in China has apparently decided to take it upon himself to add a Metroplex of appropriate scale to help display his collection. We don't know the name of the builder (but if you do please let us know!) but these photos show some impressive building work, starting with a metal frame. One image even suggests it's designed to lay down for the battlestation/ship mode, though that's not depicted in the finished image. Despite being taller than a human, it seems this is still not quite big enough, being shown with Smallest Transformers. But it's still super impressive building! Keep reading to see the pictures!
The Hollywood Reporter has posted a story on the Hasbro Cinematic Universe writer's room, which will be getting underway shortly! It's headed, once again, by Akiva Goldsman (Batman & Robin, Batman Forever, The Da Vinci Code) with such noteworthy authors as Michael Chabon (The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay) and Bryan K. Vaughan (Runaways, Saga). Keep reading for the full roster!
Seen previously as a grey prototype at a hobby show in Hong Kong, tonight we have a quick pair of full color images for Ultra Magnus from the Ultimetal line. You might remember the Ultimetal Optimus Prime, a large scale figure with removable armor parts to show detailed internal structures, and which by itself cost in the neighborhood of $1000. Ultra Magnus of course adds full Magnus armor on top of a recolor of that Optimus body, making a very impressive piece, but one whose potential price tag is staggering to even think about! Keep reading to see the new photos.
