    Ok, first I gotta point out that Im not responsible for this: the body was painted from Prime by Vector (shown earlier) and the head is a Sculpt-bot work. I did paint the head and stick it on - you know, the hard bits :wink: 
    Anyway, thought I'd better post pics of the finished product. Only Question is what to do with Autobot logos. I have a regular red one that can go on his chest (prob the preferred option), a silver one for the chest (not sure it will stand out at all) or maybe try find some small ones to go on the white shoulders?
    What do you think?

    Thanks again to Vector & Sculpt-bot for their work

    i think the red makes him look more ultra magnusy.

    i plan on keeping the autobot symbols he already has on his shoulders as they don't stand out too much but definately add to the appearence

    I'd go with either the silver chest logo or the smaller ones for the shoulders. I've found that subtlety is the key for alternators.

    I have no input as to where to put the insignia decals.....I just wanted to say that it looks very cool.

    As always, sweet job Vector.

    The head looks very cool Sculpt-bot.

    Good job on the head painting, and congrats on the cool custom icanfly :thumb

    Can you show us a pic. of the symbols near Ult.Mag. ?
    I would have said it (symbols) should be about the size of a dime.....not sure if you have any U.S./CDN coins on hand......I know I don't have any AUD Coins kickin around.
    Should'nt be any bigger than you're thumbnail, maybe, idealy.
    Looks good ! That Vector.....:sly:  ....sure knows how to paint 'em ! :rock

    Can't say i've tried to transform it since the head went on. I think it would be too big though. In fact thats the only minor hangup i have with it is that the head i got for it is marginally big and makes him look a bit squat. But having said that I would recommend both Vector and Sculpt-bot to anyone needing stuff done.

    Regards

    That is very cool, the head is very well done and the paintwork in general as well.
