He's ultra big... and a Magnus...
He looks very spot on to the cartoon look. He's big, bulky, and overall very clean. Where he faulters is the range of articulation. A slight lunge is about as dramatic as I could get him without the use of supports. He's got the stoic pose down to an art, however!
Materials-wise, Ultra Magnus has a little diecast in him, something rarely seen since the mp10 reboot. Everything tabs in fairly solidly, and ratchets are strong enough to hold similarly sized figures without losing a click.
Transport truck mode is slightly weakened by the obvious thighs in the trailer, but overall captures the look very well, and is a very easy conversion process compared to many other mp characters.
As someone who holds no special connection to the character, I am honestly glad I picked him up. He looks right at home alongside DX9 Carry and Tyrant, my other Season 3/movie characters.
