As the release of the Japanese version of Leader Class Ultra Magnus draws closer, we are getting a better look at the figure thanks to TF Yuki! This version features significant color differences from the version released outside of Japan with more paint applications aimed at making him look more like his G1 counterpart rather than the character from the IDW Publishing comics. Also, the Minimus Ambus figure has a completely new deco and identity as Alpha Trion!

Toy News: New photos of TAV 21 Optimus Prime show just how BIG he is!

Taking a break from his recent focus on "Unite Warriors", TF Yuki has posted a couple photos featuring the newly released TAV 21 Optimus Prime figure and it is huge! This figure stands shoulder to shoulder with "Unite Warriors" Superion and is about half the height of Titan Class Devastator! This figure doesn't just have height. It is also full of features including light up parts and the ability to fit a Warrior Class figure in its trailer in vehicle form!

Toy Review: "Combiner Wars" Leader Class Ultra Magnus

Honor, duty and being a law keeper are as much of a fabric of the being known as Ultra Magnus as his physical form. After the first Ultra Magnus fell, the mantle of that role and name have been passed on from Autobot to Autobot. The latest is Minimus Ambus, a dedicated soldier with a no-nonsense attitude! Today's review brings you a look at Leader Class Ultra Magnus!
