BioAs commander of AUTOBOT City on Earth, ULTRA MAGNUS commands the most powerful forces ever assembled, of which he is among the greatest. He was given the honor of City Commander by OPTIMUS PRIME because of his superior intelligence, and incredible might as a warrior. Since taking command he has defended the city against dozens of attacks by DECEPTICONS led by the crafty SKYWARP. For his part, SKYWARP is determined to breach the city's defenses and destroy ULTRA MAGNUS in order to prove himself to MEGATRON.
Because these figures are both repaints (and in the case of Skywarp, a very slight remold) of figures already released in this line, instead of giving you what you already know in regards to transformation instructions we will simply link back to their original figure releases.
ULTRA MAGNUS is a repaint of OPTIMUS PRIME, done up in colors reminiscent of the Generation One ULTRA MAGNUS figure. The difference is, of course, that the original ULTRA MAGNUS had some body armor that went around him. But when he was out of body armor, he was basically a white OPTIMUS PRIME. With SKYWARP, you get a repainted STARSCREAM figure, with minor remolding. The minor remolding? The exhaust vents on SKYWARP (next to his head in robot mode) have a few extra notches in them than STARSCREAM did. This remold is also seen in RAMJET.

ULTRA MAGNUS, Vehicle Mode
Instead of having a red and blue truck, you now have a white and blue truck. The paint applications in vehicle mode are actually somewhat better than OPTIMUS PRIME - they look and feel a little more realistic. Or maybe I'm just tired of looking at this truck and seeing red and blue. Either way, I like it. Kudos.
ULTRA MAGNUS, Robot Mode
For starters, THEY FINALLY PUT AUTOBOT EMBLEMS ON THE SHOULDERS. They just did it with the wrong figure, as that was OPTIMUS PRIME's trademark visual was the Autobot emblems on his shoulders (well, that and the facemask ... chest ... stomach ... and such). What I don't like about this robot mode is that the faceplate is painted a light silver instead of blue like on the back of the box. Having the blue faceplate would have just made it so much more nostalgic for me. It's not a huge factor, but just enough to make it so I can't give the paint applications on this entire package a 10.
SKYWARP, Vehicle Mode
I love, love, LOVE this toy. Out of all of the three jets (STARSCREAM, SKYWARP, and the eventual THUNDERCRACKER), SKYWARP has always been my favorite. His colors are just a perfect blend. His vehicle mode is well done, especially with the orange/gold cockpit. He looks like the perfect update for his original toy/character, and is a beautiful addition in vehicle mode to STARSCREAM. In fact, SKYWARP himself looks to be better painted than STARSCREAM.
SKYWARP, Robot Mode
Perfect. That's the best way to describe it. Absolutely perfect. I cannot think of a single flaw. The purple is just the right shade, all the colors accent the others nicely, and it's just so much fun to put in various poses. If you're a fan of the original jets, SKYWARP is a not-to-be-missed piece to your collection.
If not for freakin' ULTRA MAGNUS's faceplate, this set would be the first (and most likely only) Classics package to get a perfect 10. For the price of 19.99 USD, this set of beautiful figures can be yours. Just get to your local Target store and check the endcaps. If you're even luckier, you might be able to pick one up on clearance sometime in May for possibly 10.00 USD or cheaper, but we don't recommend waiting. In fact, we highly recommend this set of figures to all collectors - casual and serious. The kids will love it, the collectors will love it, and your pets will love to chew on it if you leave it on the floor. Don't miss out on this beautiful set.
