Out of the box, Animated Leader Class Ultra Magnus is a very impressive figure. However, he's unfinished when you compare him to the box art. So I did a little painting here and there. I used Mr. Color light gray to paint the hands, forearm lines and kneecaps below the spurs. For the Mass Hammer, shoulder cannons and gatling guns, I used Mr. Metal Color #214 Dark Iron. What's unique about Mr. Metal Color is the application. You brush the surface and let it dry. Once dry, it leaves a flat black finish, but when you buff it with a soft, dry cloth, it gives the surface a bold, metallic finish. In the case of Ultra Magnus, the Dark Iron gave the cannons and gatling guns a gunmetal finish, while it made the Mass Hammer look like a weathered and well-worn stone. After re-watching episode 17, I plan to apply Dark Iron on the butt of the handle. This figure is still a work in progress, as I'll need to bring him to my local hobby shop to match the teal and metallic blue colors. Hope you like these pics.
