New Details For War for Cybertron: Siege Leader Ultra Magnus And Titan Tease!

Via Q&As shared on their official Transformers Instagram account, Hasbro have revealed a bevy of new details regarding the upcoming War for Cybertron: Siege line’s Leader Class Ultra Magnus as well as a cryptic teaser of “Something BIG” on the horizon!

Up until now, we have learned very little about the new Leader Class Ultra Magnus figure, beyond what Hasbro and TakaraTomy’s stock photos have shown off. Well now, via Instagram “stories”, we have a little more to go on regarding his design and how he will interact with the line’s C.O.M.B.A.T system:

Here’s the rundown:

  • Ultra Magnus’s full robot mode will stand about 8 inches tall. So he is a little shorter than previous Leader Class figures.
  • His robot mode mode design takes inspiration from both his G1 cartoon design and details taken his 1980s Japanese concept art (possibly the Studio OX design).
  • Yes, the inspiration for his much beefier car carrier alternate mode is definitely taken from Robots in Disguise (2001) Ultra Magnus / Car Robots God Magnus.
  • Magnus will not feature an optional “hover mode”. However, he can give Micro Masters a lift in his trailer!
  • While Magnus being armed with a hammer has become a part of his character of late, Siege Ultra Magnus will not come with a hammer initially. Instead, Wreckers fans should keep an eye out for one later in the line. I guess this means Magnus is getting a hammer-themed Battle Master buddy!
  • When talking about shoulder launchers, we’re told that the line’s C.O.M.B.A.T system interchangeability will allow fans to give Magnus his classic launchers, or shoulder cannons, or something completely different.

Finally, this was found.

With New York Comic Con coming up the weekend of 4 October 2018, could we be looking at the reveal of Hasbro’s next Titan Class figure? If so, who could it be?
