Ultra Magnus is kind of a mess. He is difficult to transform, unsteady and does not like to stay together.
In vehicle mode, Ultra Magnus is a car carrier. You can fit 3 standard sized RID cars onto his trailer, along with a large, awkward looking gun platform.
Probably the coolest feature of Ultra Magnus is his electronic sounds. Depending on what mode he is in, and where you place his gun, Ultra Magnus makes different sounds. There is even a different sound when he is combined with Optimus Prime to make Omega Prime.
I found transforming Ultra Magnus to be a pain. Things didn't click in where they should, and once they did, something else would pop out. The whole chest cavity is pretty flimsy. Some transformers I can transform for years and never have to look at the book. With this one, I have to break out the instructions every time.
Maybe I'm just getting old.
