Action Pose – Ultra Magnus Mebsuta

WFC Optimus Prime is a great example of how a deluxe Optimus can be cool. Sure, it’s a bit short for an Optimus, but it looks nice in both modes, has an articulated bot mode, and the transformation is a bit more complex than usual for the size class.

FOC Optimus Prime is short for a deluxe and really short for an Optimus, looks kind of crappy in both modes, has okay articulation in bot mode, and the transformation is so simple it would be better on a basic Cyberverse bot.

The Ultra Magnus version looks a lot better, but a short Ultra Magnus is even worse than a short Optimus.

But use that short Ultra Magnus as Minimus Ambus and combine it with a suit of armor?

Much better!

The Mebsuta armor may not be able to make a trailer in alt mode, but I actually like the rocket sled and the hover tank. The plastic is also good quality, the rubber hands are a really cool design that I’d like to see done on other tiny plastic giant robots, and the combined mode has a lot of poseability.

 

So, dear readers, what’s your favorite version of Classics Ultra Magnus? Should Mebsuta team up with Cosmos?
