    Just curious to know if anyone has ever done a custom Beast Wars Ultra Magnus? I think it would be pretty interesting seeing the white/blue colour scheme of Magnus applied to, say, the original BW Optimus Primal mold. *shrugs* So, has anyone done this? Or have I given anyone a little inspiration? It would be pretty awsome to see one.

    I guess BW Magnus would be a Gorrilla in some kind of armor...

    One of the Planet of the Apes warriors perhaps?

    I don't know, are there any TF monkies that have Magnus-like armour?

    I was kinda thinking along the lines of that Alt Ultra Magnus someone made (which was really cool). Not really having the armour option, but just the core bot.

    I don't know if you've seen this picture or not.

    BTW I've been meaning to digibash that pic to accurate colors.


    Edit: I just realised you want the armor on him.

    That would be interesting to see. I wouldn't buy one if it was ever produced, but it would be interesting to see. A little off the main topic here. What BW mold would be good for a kitbash up as Bumblebee?

    Well, if we go by modern Magnus storylines, he's basically prime's body with some heavy armor. The Optimal Optimus body seems to suit it perfectly.
    Cockpit on chest (like UM's blue chest plate)
    Huge towering sholders.
    Long arms.
    And big heavy armored vehicle mode.

    Someone entered a white repaint of Big Convoy as BW Ultra Magnus at BotCon one year.

    What about Polar Claw as the base of a Ultra Magnus figure?

    A Primal repaint of a Albino Gorilla would be awesome..... If I get an extra Primal, I'll give it a shot.

    That's the first thing I thought of before I even started reading the replies to this thread. I always thought he kinda always looks like Magnus to begin with so I think he would be a great one to do as Magnus.

    That Polar Claw looks good too, never would have thought it but now that I think of it, it really does work.

    Most of the Primal molds I really cant see as Magnus, I dont know its weird wile most other Prime toys also work as Magnus, Primal does not *shrugs*

    With his head Polar Claw might make a decent Grimlock as well, I don't have the Photoshop skills or else i'd do it myself.
