Very enjoyable read. I loved

Very enjoyable read. I loved all the cartoon references you used, it shows that you put a lot of care into your writing. I especially liked the rage virus infected Magnus.

Great review

Very nice review, I appreciate all the references to the original material and to the history of Ultra Magnus.
I have my own nostalgia for the original I had from Takara, Blue and red "armor" with magnetic pilot, ship and all.

Too bad they will never make that in MP, not even as a variation since they ditched the armor design.
As a kid I really "hated" the white cartoon UM... probably since I had the takara toy before watching UM in the show, and hated the colors. I won´t be getting it - but kudos to the MP line for making a new design that will surely make the fans happy!

I'm surprised they haven't

I'm surprised they haven't done a special recolor of MP Optimus (original or MP-10) from when he had the special alloy sprayed on to repeal the hate plague. Imagine it all mirror chromed!

Can't Deal With Recoloring

....I'll get my Krylon.

but seriously, I'm expecting at some point we'll get the Diaclone color edition. Maybe with a vintage style box like that "Other Guy" by KFC.

Ultra Magnus was a cool toy

Ultra Magnus was a cool toy back when, but this new version really hits all the wish list items in MP style!
Very nice, warm review, as usual Andrew! Go Veef. Easy to tell who likes trucks, and planes around here, ;)

Trailer adapter

I am selling an adapter that allows MP-22's cab to haul MP-10's trailer. You can find it on Shapeways.
