    I put my battle tanker on Botcon Ultra Magnus and I think it looks good.

    Looks good, other than the head. Matches nearly perfectly.

    With the announcement of Scourge I hope Maketoy does a Battle Tanker redeco to match it.

    Not bad, I think with the Prime head he'd look good as a G2 version of Powered Convoy.

    Almost wish I had picked up a second Battle Tankor when BBTS had their sale. Ah well, didn't need to drop another $75+ right now.

    One of your ultra magnuses is missing a paint app on it's leg. That kinda sucks.

    Looks damn good if you ask me... but the head is a little puny compared to the body+armor.

    That's only because he didn't put the Battle Tanker head on Ultra Magnus. Curious though, will the BT head fit on Magnus? or do you have to take the head off and replace it with the standard Prime head?

    nice. u should repaint the tanker head and plop it on there.

    im still wanting to do a regular paint up of ultra magnus with battle tanker. think i might pick up a ko set to do it. or hire one of the great radicons to do it. surprised no one else has done it yet...i guess scourge/nemesis is the easiest way to go.

    The BT head is on my Optimus prime. It could fit but would look a little odd. But I agree, the head is a little small. But I was really surprised at how well the kit matches color wise.

    The BT head always needs to be a replacement. Even on Optimus you have to remove the original head.

    I don't own BT, but I was under the impression you were supposed to put it on top of the original head, and not replace it. I was wondering if the Magnus head would fit the BT head.

    The BT head has to completely replace the Laser Prime mold's original head. That means in order to put the BT head on SG Magnus, you'd have to completely take of Magnus' head (just like you'd have to do with any iteration of that RTS Laser Prime mold).

    I personally don't think he looks bad with the SG Ultra Magnus head, though. Looks a little small, but considering the fiction says Prime ripped most of his face off, it makes sense that his head wouldn't be completely proportionate. I'm seriously contemplating getting SG Magnus and a KO Battle Tanker set since it looks REALLY good on him...
