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!
