Autobot roll call,
Ultra Magnus is back, but it's an Ultra Magnus who's quite different from the one we saw in the original Transformers series - and the differences are more than superficial. His relationship to Optimus Prime, his former friend, is strained. The reasons for Ultra Magnus' animosity dates back many millions of years - he and Optimus Prime were created at the same time, but it was Optimus Prime who was entrusted with the Matrix. Ultra Magnus has never got over being overlooked, and now he arrives on Earth to challenge Optimus for the Matrix.
Ultra Magnus transforms into a car carrier, capable of carrying Autobot warriors over long distances at high speeds. A professional soldier, he wields a fierce and fiery weapon called Blue Bolts. The Blue Bolt is linked directly to Ultra Magnus' power supply, and consequently its power varies depending on his condition. He has flight capability thanks to a turbo-charged, high-powered jet engine.
Ultra Magnus and Optimus Prime can join together to create Omega Prime, a super-powerful force of strength
Hidden somewhere on Earth, is the largest Transformer of them all - the gigantic city Transformer called Fortress Maximus! When Megatron eventually learns of this forgotten secret, he immediately realizes its importance. With Fortress Maximus at his command he will be able to defeat the Autobots once and for all, and reduce them to a bitter memory! The Autobots' only chance for survival is to find Fortress Maximus before Megatron does...
The giant Fortress Maximus isn't a living, sentient robot like the other Transformers. It is an enormous
robot body, 350 meters tall, which can be controlled using "Headmaster" technology.
In robot mode, Fortress Maximus is bristling with weaponry. He has retractable pulse cannons, machine
gun batteries, and laser-guided mortars. When he fires off all his cannons at once, no enemies can
withstand his onslaught. Transformed into a space-going battleship, he can carry Autobot warriors across the
vastness of space at the speed of light.
The Build Team
A strangely composed team, with a young, inexperienced Transformer as the leader, and three immensely loyal Autobots who do everything to protect and help him.
Landfill is the 12-meter tall super robot formed of the four members of the Build Team. Thanks to his unique Tornado Fusion System, he can optimize his configuration for any combat situation. Landfill has three different modes, each in which Wedge remains at the center while the other three members rotate around his hub. The Hurricane Mode, in which Grimlock(*) forms the back and arms, is a superb multi-purpose type formation, balancing offense and defense; the Cyclone Mode, with Hightower(*) in the upper body, is a power type form excelling in close-quarters combat; and the Typhoon Mode, with Heavyload(*) in the topmost position, is his battle type formation, which has high offensive power.
(*) The three modes are named after the Build Team members' Japanese names - Grimlock is
"Build Hurricane", Hightower is "Build Cyclone", and Heavyload is "Build
