Ultra Magnus

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.

 

Thanks Liege! Much appreciated!

lace front wigs are called this because they are constructed by sewing hair onto an invisible lace base that is

 

custom cut perfectly to the wig wearer's hairline. These lace wigs are the most natural looking wigs on the market

 

today. They are perfectly shaped and very light weight. When worn correctly, no-one will be able to tell that you are wearing a wig as these hair units boast an

 

invisible hairline which gives off the appearance that the lace wig hair is actually growing from your scalp.

 

lace front wigs really offer you a natural and original look which is why they are immensely popular, and if you are losing your

 

hair, they offer an excellent hair replacement solution. In addition, unlike weaves, fusion, strand-by-strand, and many other popular hair extension methods that can

 

damage your hair and natural hairline, full lace wig are completely safe.

Wow, that had nothing to do with anything. Is this how wig salesmen drum up business these days?

 

Also, I was pretty sure this thread would be dead by now but since it isn't, why don't we ever see Ultra Magnus out of what is essentially his exoskeleton? He's a "white Prime" but we never see what's inside the trailer armor. I think there's some fascinating psychology tied to this tendency to not expose his more vulnerable side.

just gonna beat the geektards to it.

 

There was that one time, when he was fighting, and his armor got all blowned up that yeah they showed him as the white prime jumping out of it, and he had his gun and everything...

 

Then in the megatrons origin, they showed him and prime and elita one at the guys memorial, and it was the Titanium prime painted white but dam hasblo for not making elita-1 cause it was befor and she looked like ariel and even though I think Megan Fox is a ugly sinful girl cause she has tattoos and my mom doesn't, I think she's pretty and would take her out.

 

sorry, just figured sum it up quick.

The white prime cab is only a component to Ultra Magnus, not Magnus himself. He is not Ultra Magnus until he is fully assembled, as the original box clearly shows.

 

Has/Tak passing the white cab off as UM in the Masterpiece and Classics line is embarrassing.

 

I don't care what TF Wiki, the "canon", comic books or anyone else says.

 

Forgive my forthrightness, but it's a pet peeve of mine. He's been my favorite character since Christmas morning '86.

That's all well and good but you still didn't explain the part about the wigs....

So is the white cab the "Ultra" or the "Magnus"? My money's on "Magnus".

then you'd better take a good look at the original box Magnus came in. At the top of the box there's a picture of the white cab robot standing next to the trailer (there's a link to a boxed pic below his name at tfu.info).

 

Also, in the backart of the space battle featuring Metroplex you can clearly see magnus: both in his armor and once without it.

 

 

That he was never shown without his armor in the cartoon was likely to avoid confusion with the (very dead) Optimus Prime.

Yeah I was a Magnus Fan from the day I saw the toy in the Sunday Paper toy ads- Zayre was the store I believe.

Even on first viewing the movie at the theatre I could see that the only reason the Matrix reponded to Roddy and not to Magnus was because when Optimus had (forgive me) primed it for it to bond with the next leader, Roddy had to touch the danged thing first. Seeing how it upgraded his weak @$$ and made him somewhat more impressive, it's always made me wonder what it would have done for Magnus if he'd been teh first to touch it as originally intended.

 

That plus, I figure we'd have a season three with Magnus Prime somberly and humbly kicking Deciptibutt from here to the the Magellanic Clouds.

Now that I would have loved to seen. Could have been so much better than any Rodimus Prime crap.:agree

Oh What perilous times we live in, when a lowly wig salesman can not pimp his goods. Without the judgement of those with full flowing locks.:cjdance

    • I'd like to put something into perspective about this set which is further strengthened by the recent leaks. First: This is TARGET's fault this happened, not Hasbro's. Why? Because they're the ones who cancelled the single release to begin with. Just like Walmart cancelled  "pink" Hot Rod in the Velocitron line.  Second: If Hasbro didn't do some sort of multipack for this, Hound wouldn't have been able to come out at all until possibly late 2025. How do I know this? The recent leaks that show that Crasher, Cosmos, Galaxy Shuttle and possibly Shadowstrip and the aforementioned Hot Rod (and hopefully Sideswipe, Mirage, Jazz and Dead End from Toxitron as well) as all being reissued sometime in 2025. It would've taken another year and a half to two years for Hasbro to try and course correct since that's about how far they plan in advance. If Hasbro not done this five pack then the earliest we would've been able to get Hound was 2025. I don't think the crybabies would've been able to wait that long. There's already people crying about having to wait that long for SS Hatchet as it is. That's the quickest they could've course corrected for the main lines. That is however what Generations Selects is for but I would imagine it couldn't have happened any earlier than this due to the licensing issues or whatever's going on that prevents Hasbro from using and/or reissuing new toolings and decos from store exclusives sooner. So there's a lot of behind the scenes stuff going on with this set. Or rather, Hound in particular. However and as others have pointed out over the internet, this didn't need to be a five pack. In all honesty, five packs are a bit much. Even four packs like the Buzzworthy ones were a bit much. Three packs should be where most multipacks should top out at provided there's no actually reason for four or five to be in a set like if they're a team or combiner or something. This should've been two-three packs by adding in Sideswipe as he also has translucent plastic. Then go from there with more. Bumblebee, Prowl, Bluestreak, Red Alert, Smokescreen, Hoist and so on can join these five, Sideswipe and Buzzworthy Cliffjumper in the blue painted window crew.  I'm not saying we should suck the dick of the great and powerful Hasbro for this or anything as it could've and should've been done better, I'm just saying that it's a lose/lose situation for them and that the vast majority of the hate should be directed at Target...and ultimately the fans for not having bought the previous Buzzworthy sets. However whoever designed some of them should get a lot of the blame too as some of them where badly timed, even if I do own all of them and wanted to own them. Terrorsaur did need to be reissued, Dinobot not so much even in toy colors for both. Tow-Line was a horrible mold reuse and the poor sales showed it. Origins Jazz was great. Bumblebee, maybe not quite as much. The four packs were great as well. But then that was counterbalanced by the horrible Cyberverse 1:1 reissues that had their Cyberverse counterparts also clogging shelves at the same time but hey, at least there's different packaging. It's just that there were big hits and big misses and barely anything in the middle. Had Hound and Hatchet gone through as planned, I would expect them to have sold poorly honestly. The only reason why people seem to be clamoring for them now is that they're two years late at this point and one is still another two years away. Were there people excited for them? Sure. However there seemed to be more who couldn't care less. And I'm sure that would've been reflected in the sales. So Target was right for cancelling them even if their shitty stocking and listing practices caused most of the wild sales discrepancies of the Buzzworthy Bumblebee line as a whole. But yeah, I see a lot of GoBots here lol.  
    • Back in the day, Takara's World's Smallest Transformers surprised everyone with their 2-inch Gashapon (capsule toys) sized figures that could actually transform from robot to vehicle. They even managed to make a transforming trailer and repair bay / command center, with tiny Roller for the Autobot Leader, when he needed to recharge. - Read the Full News Story
    • It is that time of year again for Walmart Collector Con 2024 Spring! This year's exclusives event will being going on March 14 & 15, 2023 with various reveals coming on both days. There will be a Sneak Peek starting on March 7th, that may give us some clues. If the leaked listings are any predictor, we could be seeing the Star Seekers capsule series with a cast of pirate characters including Cannonball, Ferel, Filch, Lockdown, Roadpig, and Thundertron figures, see possible listings below. - Read the Full News Story
    • The Missing Link line attempts to answer the question, "What would Generation One toys look and feel like with modern articulation?" With Convoy/Optimus Prime, the answer is fantastic. C-01 and C-02 feel like the original toy, with diecast metal, and rubber tires, it's nearly impossible to see any differences from the original toy. It's the transformation and robot mode that reveals all the new work, articulated hands and wrists, hips and feet. while I find the waist articulation limited and the ab crunch rather useless, it's impressive that they were included. The 40th anniversary of the Transformers brand is off to an excellent start.
