Magnificus (マガニフィカス) is the former Decepticon military counsul of the Mebion domain, wrongly ousted by his rivals. Sent into pit-fighting arenas, Magnificus has developed an incredible level of fighting skill.
He has teamed with the Micronaut Ga'mede, a kindred spirit who he rescued from a death at the hands of betrayers himself, and together they wreak a terrible revenge on those who wronged them. The two have amassed an impressive arsenal of destructive weapons over the course of numerous campaigns.
A black clone of Perceptor created by Shockwave was seen inside a cloning tube in a secret underground facility on Cybertron, alongside several other alternate-color clones of various characters. The Protectobots were later combing over the lab to secure it for the Autobots.
- Magnificus & Ga'Mede (Decepticon, 2005)
- Japanese ID number: 68
- Accessories: "Ion Rifle", "Spear Gun" missile launcher, 3 missiles
- An e-Hobby exclusive redeco of the Perceptor toy, Magnificus transforms into a working microscope (though not with a very high magnification rate), as well as a tank that Microman figures can ride. As with all Japanese releases, he has a fully-functional spring-loaded missile launcher weapon, where the US versions had to have them weakened for safety reasons.
- He came with his partner Ga'mede.
- Magnificus' coloration is based on the mold's original pre-Transformers Microman colors. This toy was designed to work with the then-current Microman figures. The set of Magnificus and Ga'Mede is a celebration of Transformers and Microman's shared history with Takara.
- Magnificus' toy appears as a guard, possibly an evil Perceptor, in the BotCon 2008 "Shattered Glass" comic.
