Banana Force is bringing us high detailed non-transforming figures made of ABS and die-cast. In a very original move, their first release is not a G1 character but Optimus Prime from the Robots In Disguise 2001 cartoon (of Fire Convoy as he’s known in Japan).
The second release in this line is a modern and stylized rendition of RID 2001 Ultra Magnus ( or Car Robots God Magnus in Japan). We have the first proper renders of this mold. While still recognizable as Ultra Magnus, he looks bulky and imposing, his wings look bigger and two great big cannons have been added to the design. We can also see the Matrix Blade on his back. While not able to transform, this Ultra Magnus figure can split up and become an armor for MPL-01 to form Omega Prime (God Fire Convoy in Japan).
