    Hi guys I thought by myself can I make more cool TF's with minor mods...??

    The answer was probably Yes to begin with, but I needed some confidence...
    Unfortunatly I don't have a classics Magnus yet :( 
    But I did have a junker + a mint G1 Ultra Magnus...
    So it set myself a goal the make minor mods only a few screws/pegs/holes :) 
    Again since I don't have a Classics Magnus or a junker prime etc.
    I used my Classics Optimus from my own collection as a stand-in...

    I need your help to find me an affordable Classics Magnus...
    (I might aswell use a KO for the first time)
    So I can finish up this project and present you guys the tutorial ;) 

    Once again I only used extra leftover parts + Lego...
    YES IT'S A PARTSFORMER :D  hahaha so is the original UM and FP version :p 

    EXTRA:
    This is still a WIP, I'm using a STAND-IN and I'm already on Ver.2

    EXTRA2:
    I'm gonna make a real large exclusive TUT/DIY for this, but I think I really need help in getting a Classics Magnus! Since I've decided to paint the upper legs and some other parts red so it resembles the looks on the Digibash I really need to go for the KO's and swap out some parts first :D  But I'm very low on cash, to be extremely honest I'm having serious money issues right now, from all the purchases and project that are going on (since 90% of my projects are for my own collection It's investing without gaurantees)

    O well... So bottomline is I cannot continue this project untill cashflow is back on track or get some help from others...


    Tell you what if there's someone who could help me get the KO 3pack (nemesis/magnus/prime) and ship me a 2nd 3pack (or if you want a cheaper version a single KO magnus, or even a more expensive original Classics Magnus) + "G1 magnus trailer" (with all the items I've used) I'll make you a copy of the finished project, how does that sound?

    If anyone wants to help or likes to help, shoot me a PM! ;) 


    UPDATE2:
    Last 4 pics added those are Ver.2 Less additional pieces...
    since I found a super cool way of using the windvane/shield/gun
    Still 0 mod's to PRIME/MAGNUS and G1 Ultra Magnus :p 

    UPDATE3:
    Removed the last 3pics (they were the same anyways) and added a digibash colorscheme
    (If I'm really do my job good I can make the cab white but have to make sure the inside of the arm are red)

    UPDATE4:
    Added Alt-Mode Digibash (might not do the stripes, don't know yet)

    UPDATE5:
    Since it will take a while for I get my hand on a classics magnus (or KO)
    I though lets make a few extra additions.. (still in BETA phase)
    Behold a G1 Magnus replica head, but with longer face :) 
    I'm also gonna replicate his original G1 gun, maybe add some details
    Here's the corresponding 3D-art thread: http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/trans...s-2-0-ultra-magnus-head-beta.html#post5810769

    UPDATE6:
    Version.B Torso and shoulder joints/connectors + extra articulation...
    (I guess this will be the final version of the upper body!!)
    Can wait for a magnus so I can start on the legs, if the waiting takes to long I'm gonna find a solution with extra pieces + Lego and leaving the STAND-I Prime unharmed :p 

    UPDATE7:
    Well obviously after being motivated by my buddy destrongerlupus I got back on this bad boy...
    still my Magnus has not arrived thus again using prime as stand-in so still no mods to the main figure :D 
    I have made an amazing discovery .... let the pics do the talking!!
    (it's hotglue so it can be removed to make G1 magnus trailer fresh and unharmed)

    UPDATE8:
    Version3 is done... now I'll prolly await the arrival of magnus...
    and gonna do some 3D work in the next couple of days...
    my bashing spree has come to a halt and I'm gonna save some energy
    (since 3 other combiners still await my attention :p )

    Looking good. Always amazes me how people like yourself can take a G1 toy and with a few alterations get that much posability out of them.

    So is this finished (minus the stand-in Prime), or still a WIP?

    ouchhhh. Nice comeback !!

    hey kitbash, is this the original UM trailer you used? It's not some sort of smaller-sized KO ?

    Not very familiar with those from that era.

    thnx!!

    heheh yeah the comeback was pretty epic :D  but he does have a good point since I love the Magnus FP armore... I hate the looks of the trailer :( 

    No this is the original G1, I wanted to practiced on the junker I also had, but eventually still no cutting is required for the G1 Magnus ;) 

    Yup It's still a wip... I'm improving as we speak...
    You can see I still have TAPED the legs together cuz of the stand-in :2c:

    You have been on a serious roll bud. Nice work on this one i may have to try this when you put up the tutorial. If your looking for a classics ultra magnus id pick up a couple from KoToys.com that way you could steal the wheels off one and put them on the trailer. Id make for a better continuity in my opinion

    No can do ;)  ... I'll wait for a original or indeed go for KO *sigh*

    If I indeed do go for KO, I'll by the 3 pack... nemesis/prime/ultra...
    f*ck prime for the wheels, put them on the trailer and magnus stays himself
    and then make a nemesis version out of the junker magnus I've used now :p

    I like the idea of making a nemisis magnus. Question though do you plan on heavily armoring nemy and how do you plan on doing his sword (im sure your not even at the planning stage yet, but im just curios)

    Hehe... well in my head I'm always planning :D 
    But I'm not even sure if the KO's arm are strong enough...
    ths STAND-IN original Classics prime is tight and strong joints :popcorn 

    :confused:

    Is it possible to do a "almost no mods" Classics magnus with Vintage Trailer/Armor custom?

    Evidently it is. I'm pretty much in awe here. The 2-era mash-up Magnus concept has been one of my favorite ideas all along (I like the Commander armor very much, but not AS Magnus, Powered Convoy sure, but Magnus is too distinctive...), and have LONG planned to do one myself, but haven't been feeling the time/dedication required to do the kind of crazy modding all previously successful projects have evidenced.

    And here you are, no cutting, pretty much perfect. I can see a little room to tighten up the configuration of the Prime-Core and how the parts connect to it, but it's at least 75% there.

    Damn.

    Can't wait for some detailed pics on this one, it's a thing of real glory!

    thnx :rolleyes: 

    a junker G1 magnus without the cab parts, but with the rest complete (maybe reprolabels) + KO Classics Magnus (+ some lego and paint) you're all set!

    Thank you for that huge complement... I'm gonna make a real large exclusive TUT/DIY for this, but I think I really need help in getting a Classics Magnus! Since I've decided to paint the upper legs and some other parts red so it resembles the looks on the Digibash I really need to go for the KO's and swap out some parts first :D  But I'm very low on cash, to be extremely honest I'm having serious money issues right now, from all the purchases and project that are going on (since 90% of my projects are for my own collection It's investing without gaurantees)
