This isn’t a five star figure for me mainly because the Siege one is, and this one has a few issues that keep it from that rating. Obviously, this is a retool of the Siege figure that mainly shares the same transformation scheme and some of the same parts. It’s mainly gotten a retool and redeco to make it look more like the design seen in the 1986 movie and successive seasons of the TV shows. The robot mode looks great, as does the Siege version. It’s got that G1 vibe. The truck mode looks good, from certain angles. The trailer doesn’t come up to the cab, like the Siege version does, to create the look of a separate cab and trailer, but they’re not separate. The trailer still tabs into the sides of the legs, just farther down. This makes for a less secure connection. It also means that the trailer can’t rotate independently of the cab like the G1 toy’s could, and as was seen in animation in the ’80s. This also leaves the robot arms and hands hanging out of the back of the cab and highly visible from a side view, since the trailer doesn’t come all the way to the cab. So, it’s kind of ugly and full of issues in that spot. I realize they wanted to use the same engineering as the previous figure, but this is one of those instances where cutting corners led to a less than satisfying result. But, it is what it is. Ironically, I do have this figure displayed in his truck mode, along with my Earthrise Optimus and G1 Optimus and Magnus. (I have the Siege versions of Optimus and Magnus on display in robot mode) I have him where he’s mainly visible from a head on view, though, to cover up the issues with that cab/trailer connection.

Much like most of the other War for Cybertron trilogy figures, Ultra Magnus makes a good first impression but ultimately leaves you underwhelmed.

This figure is a retool of the previous Siege Ultra Magnus. There is some remolding here and there, mostly to make his alt-mode look more Earth-like, but the basic framework and transformation remain identical. He looks nice enough standing on the shelf, though as in the previous incarnation his legs are very stubby (there are 3rd party addon kits to address this issue but you really shouldn’t have to go that route to make your relatively expensive Transformer look right).

Transformation takes many queues from the 3rd party City Commander kit (that came out back in 2009ish) where the cab is basically a white Optimus Prime and the trailer then detaches and separates into smaller bits that attach to the main figure like armor to give the classic G1 Ultra Magnus look. However, unlike the City Commander set, on this one there is nothing particularly compelling or clever about how it all works. It all feels pretty lackluster as it comes together.

The car-carrier alt mode is pretty terrible looking. Only the feet and chest armor really make up the trailer. The rest of the parts just sort of peg on inside of it without adding a whole lot to the overall look and Ultra Magnus’ head is pretty visible hanging down from the top panel. And the cab is the worst part. The figures arms fold back and just stick out completely exposed behind the front. You can clearly see the forearms and hands just sitting there when in truck mode. The engineers didn’t even bother to make it so the hands could fold up into the forearms like many other Transformers do. It’s like they figured nobody was ever going to want to play around with the alt mode so they just didn’t put any effort into.

Again, if you don’t mind the stubby legs, the figure looks decent standing on a shelf but there is really very little fun to be had in transforming it. A better alternative (if you can find an affordable one) is the Combiner Wars Ultra Magnus. That one is much more fun, with better proportions, and even features a very cool full-figure transformation (as opposed to splitting the trailer into parts and clipping them onto the cab figure).
