I've never really had a proble with Magnus being a white redeco of prime, as that is initialy what he's always been. The only thing I don't like, is when they give him a blue faceplate. I'd rather have it silver TBH, or plain white

Viva la cheap Prime ripoffs!

 

 

See the thing you have to understand about Ultra Magnus is he me have looked like Prime he was a totally different personality. I get that they did that to death but still I enjoyed the character.

Well the turquoise face plate was what he had from the beginning too, so... I don't see an issue there either. He also had red optics. The turquoise also makes it clear that it's Ultra Magnus and not the "Hate Plague" armored Optimus Prime (the white coating Optimus was covered in to protect him from the Hate Plague).

I pride myself on knowing a good bit about Transformers mythology, but the "Hate Plague" is unknown to me. Rather than going to the TF Wikipedia page and educating myself, I lay my ingnorance before you and ask to be informed. What exactly is this "Hate Plague"?

a spore radiation thing used as a plot device in The Return of Optimus Prime.

To fight it they brought Prime back to life and coated him in a white aloy to protect him from catching it.

 

Aparently it could be transfered by simple touch.

 

Prime fought Rodimus Prime, took back the matrix and used it to eliminate the plague leaving it empty.

 

The hate plague had a breif revival in Beast Machines.

 

Thats the 101 version of it, I'm sure others will add in the fact that the research team that was testing the alloy and brought back the plague also saved Primes some how rebuilt body after it was all melted and blowing up at the end of Dark Awakening, but whatever.

    • Enjoy reading Joe's analysis per usual, especially about the Knock Out problem, and just re-releasing figures, just without clear plastic now. I just look at a lot of what Hasbro's set to release upcoming, and it's clear to me these decisions are a result of a company in dramatic decline. I know many would disagree with recent updated figures we're supposed to get, but I think there's no guarantee we'll even see these, as they'll probably be canceled or moved back indefinitely. Hasbro,  prove me wrong.
    • We ain't done vetting 2024 and here comes the leaked listings for 2025! There are some notable inclusions are the TF ONE itmes, WFC Game, 1986 Devastator, TF7 Apelinq, and some package refreshes, which are joined by the on-going releases for 1986 and Movie sub-lines. . - Read the Full News Story
    • Diving deep into the Transformers 40th Anniversary goodness today, we're taking a look at those little Transformers buddies from Japan, that we have looked at before. Hasbro called them "Decoys", and made them in red or purple faction sets, or as singles packed-in with figures. In Japan, they were called "Keshigomu" aka Keshi figures, made by Takara and Kabaya in different colors, materials, and sculptures. - Read the Full News Story
    • After the views for the TIER #1 Unlock Promo Video, the TF Team is back with an in-hand video showing us all the big and little details for the HasLab RID 2001 Omega Prime. The painted model is shown here along with some compares with the original retail toys as well as the #1 Matrix Blade and #2 Base / Stands Unlocks in the video below. - Read the Full News Story
    • I don't disagree for the most part about Armada Starscream's alt mode. It feels a little unfinished in a way. However, that's what Armada Starscream is. Nothing more, nothing less. If you're doing Armada Starscream, focus on doing Armada Starscream as it is. If you want to change something up then change up the whole thing like those Predaking and Volcanicus combiners. Don't do some half hearted attempt to keep it looking the same while changing too much about it to actually look the same. The whole silhouette is different. It might as well just be Energon Starscream at this point as you buried the Armada design under it.  Say they do make an Energon Starscream mold after this, will they change that now? Where do they go from here changing Armada SS to look like Energon SS when the rest of their Armada and Energon homages have been accurate to the originals. How do they justify this compared to the rest of what they've done so far?
