Plastic, I have little plastic heroes running rampant all over the place. This is Ultra Magnus. He wears a mask on his head, his real head looks like that of Optimus Prime. In one of the best storylines ever it was revealed in Dreamwave comics that Ultra Magnus was hearing body armor and when it was blown to bits he looked just like Optimus Prime and they are in fact brothers. There s one really bada$$ shot of Magnus with the armor all on the ground steaming and smoking and he is out to punish those who attacked him. Back when he was introduced in the movie in 1986 he was a bit of a wuss. He wasn’t the true recipient of the matrix, that went to Hot Rod who later became Rodimus Prime. That also never sat well with me, it should have BumbleBee who became the next Prime. Only because he was the least likely but had the heart of a hero. Of course then what would you call him Bumblemous Prime. Sorry that does not command respect, but then again Rodimus isn’t the best name either.
