Japanese retailer Hobby Search has posted a preorder page for MP-22 Ultra Magnus, and bring us not only the highest quality prototype photos we've seen yet, but adds a couple of fully new images not previously revealed in Figure King! Notably we can now see seams on the truck cab that indicate, if you hadn't guessed already, this probably has no intermediate robot mode at all. See all the images below!

Thanks to site sponsor RobotKingdom, we have some new information about the upcoming Ultra Magnus Masterpiece, including its list of included accessories!

The listing also confirms that the toy can transform without removing the cab portion at all.
Following yesterday's initial reveal with hasty photos of the pages of Figure King, today we have a clear, direct scan giving us an excellent look at MP-22. Seemingly hidden at the moment is the scope of the integration of the truck cab to the robot form. All we can tell is that the backpack seems to at least emulate the shape of the small robot's legs hanging from the back as on the original G1 toy. Check out the image below!
