    Well, I am planning on a trailer. As far as a head, I would need it comissioned. I don't even know how to make one...

    I bought a trailer months ago for just this purpose... the question remaing is whether or not it'll be a transforming trailer or not.

    While we're on the subject, does anyone know where I can get a custom head for my Magnus made? Or anyone who'll make it?

    I have this one available, that I am using on my own Classics Magnus. I am converting the original trailer from G1 Magnus to "armor" and it will still work as the trailer as well. Hope this helps. (the head is on the top row by the way)

    Well I drew some plans for a transforming Ultra Magnus trailer a while ago but the cab would need some remoulding as well for it to really work.

    I've actually been able to build the trailer around Classics Prime without having to do any cuts or remolding on the cab. I did have to fabricate some parts for the trailer itself to serve as attachment points to the cab.

    does the old trailer look good on him though? I would think the two styles would glare... not to mention that thing was a brick for sure.

    I have added a lot of seperations and joints that take advantage of the articulation of the Classics Prime mold. The trailer basically comes apart and makes "boots" and the rest becomes the arms/chest. The trailer looks fine with Prime, but I will reserve final judgement until I get Magnus in my hands. I will snap some pics soon and get a thread up!

    please tell me that you've gotten pictures that will make it easy to follow along so that others can try to replicate?? Even if I don't like how he looks with the original trailer, I'd be able to follow along with this new realistic trailer to achieve the same results.

    I will do my best RL! I will try to do it in a tutorial format, and make sure I list as many of the materials as possible.

    Why doesHasbro hate Magnus so much by refusing to ever give him a trailer? I mean it was cool when they did Bendy Prime cause we were all still hopped up from "War & Peace" but whats up with it now? how long do they think they can just give us nothing but a white optimus and expect it to sell?

    My answer to that would be, as long as it sells.

    Hey cool thread! And sweet work on those sculpts sculpt bot! I was always wondering how you would make a mold. Do you make the prototype first, then cast a setting around it, then once thats done, set the molding sculpt inside that cast and let it set and dry? But if so (granted Im not completely wrong) how do you get it out?

    Just curious as Im an artist and thought of this for some time now.
    Thanks for any help given.
