A quick comment:     Back to Review A-I     Back to Ultra Magnus Homepage

This is my first and last Ultra Magnus Electronic Voice Synthesizer (EVS).  Back in the old day, I had never known such item exist for Ultra Magnus EVS merchandize.  I don't recall whether Ultra Magnus is the only Transformers figure to made into this EVS line or there are other Transformers involved too.  Anyhow, I got Ultra Magnus EVS on Nov. Xxiv, Mmiii for $ ($VI) $X from SnarlsHP website.

Original G1 Ultra Magnus' Bio:

Ultra Magnus is all soldier.  Most comfortable when carrying out Optimus Prime's orders.  Possesses magnificent fighting skills, courage, and a gift for battlefield improvisation.  Uncomfortable in the mantle of leadership, but presents strong profile as a commander.  Carries missile launchers capable of hitting a target 30 miles away.  Resolute, fair, and courageous beyond reproach.  Ever ready to sacrifice himself for the good of men and mission.

R-1 Ultra Magnus E.V.S. in its Original condition:

MagEvsorg.jpg (63559 bytes)1 - Ultra Magnus Electronic Voice Synthesizer  in its brand new condition from the card. 

2 - These are all the contents that were included in the box/ package/ card:  "1" electronic action figure with "1" pre-applied straw, and "2" mini straws.

 

R-2 Ultra Magnus E.V.S. Figure:

MagEvsrob1.jpg (47602 bytes)All I can say about this electronic Ultra Magnus figure is that it's extremely simple.  This figure is basically designed to convert the sound from your mouth and mimics them to sound like the way robotic talk.   Since it doesn't really function like an action figure, I can't deduct to much point off it.  Other than the shoulder and a very slight head movement, there isn't much this figure offer in term of articulation.  The rear image shows a fold down and pre-applied straw connect onto a peg of Ultra Magnus just below his leg, See R-3 for detail.

 

R-3 Image Details:

MagEvsdetail1.jpg (38750 bytes)Ultra Magnus EVS does not come with a flat 9V battery, you have to buy it yourself.  The battery compartment is located underneath his feet and only one battery is required.  As mentioned in R-2, the straw, once the battery had been inserted and you are ready to talk then simply swing Ultra Magnus left arm out and you'll see a black button.  Once this black button is pressed, the straw will swing upright, see middle image.  From there, just put the straw into your mouth and you are ready to talk like a robot, see R-4 for more.  If you look closely, you'll notice that the straw had four holes, one to your mouth, the second to Ultra Magnus peg, the third and fourth located just above the mouth piece on either side.

 

R-4 Back Card Instruction:

MagEvsdetail2.jpg (148325 bytes)In R-3, I wrote: "just put the straw into your mouth and you are ready to talk like a robot", well it's a little bit more complex than that.  Just click on the left image, you'll see that it involves more steps than that.  The image that you are view is actually the back of the card with all the instruction for you to follow.
