Hailing from an alternate dimension where the Evil Autobots run rampant, Shattered Glass was one of this year’s Botcon exclusives that I was lucky to get my hands on at a non insane price…ish
Based on the Generations G2 mold with a new head, he can hold some nice poses. The coloring is reminiscent of the Dia Clone Powered Convoy which the G1 Ultra Magnus is a repaint of.
I like that they took time to really give a unique paint scheme to his legs. Very much like the Powered Convoy armor.
Storywise his face was to be scarred, hence no face plate. This is the mother of all light piping and I find it nice and sinister. The hard molded matrix looks dead inside his chest as well. A real nice touch.
And while armed with the sword…
of course I had to use my favorite accessory…just to make sure he could keep the proper level of imposing.
Really, that axe makes all toys better…
Vehicle mode has some nice touches…but robot mode is where this figure is at.
A note, while the plastic is decent, I don’t ever plan to transform him again. The arm popped off twice, so there is a limit to the stress.
Ultra Magnus is pretty sweet, but not an essential. A great show piece though, and if Make Toys makes a tanker trailer for him like they did G3…oh it will be on!
