With Tokyo Toy Show 2014 underway, a LOT of new Transformers products from TakaraTomy have been seen on display. One such figure is the highly anticipated Masterpiece MP-22 Ultra Magnus. Though we'll get to covering the Tokyo Toy Show in due time, e-HOBBY
has posted the first official TakaraTomy stock images of the figure in both of its modes.
Two things that might stand out about this figure are its red robot mode lower legs and its red vehicle mode bumper. For the former, that's to help the look of the car carrier in vehicle mode due to where those leg piece end up being. As for the latter, the bumper is red because, well, because that's how it was in the cartoon. Show-accuracy! Through the space bridge for the pics.

“Critics who treat 'adult' as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence. And in childhood and adolescence they are, in moderation, healthy symptoms. Young things ought to want to grow. But to carry on into middle life or even into early manhood this concern about being adult is a mark of really arrested development. When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.” -- C.S. Lewis
