    This is my entry for the "In honor of Vector" contest. Since we have the ok from Redline to post here as well, here are more pics of Magnus/Ultra Magnus. It's made from a RID Optimus Prime. Ladder was replaced by Cyb Defense Red Alert's rocket to make the vehicle mode a rocket transporter/carrier. Color scheme for Magnus is based on Vector's Alt Magnus custom. Ultra Magnus is of course based on G1 colors. I also modded the chest to make it look more Ultra Magnus and replaced the head with a Hydrospanned (and modded) Energon Superion head. Oh, you may notice some of the pics of UM lacks the yellow highlights. I added the yellow after I took the initial pics.

    Edit: After seeing base mode on TFU, I played around and did a base/launch pad mode. Pics below.

    Honestly one of the best custom magnus' Ive seen. Very unique choice of robot as well as excellent choice for head. Great paint job all over.

    that is awesome. I so prefer UMs with his "armor". I just can't acknowledge a white prime as a character

    Wow... very nice Ultra Magnus!

    Surprising we don't see RID Prime bashed into Magnus more often... it seems tailor-made for it! Great job!

    I like white-Prime Magnus when he's integrated with a transformation into the maxed out G1 mode. On it's own, it's just a white Prime.

    Ditto. Once again, great job, and thanks for sharing more pics (Redline and plowking are going to have to work overtime just to get the contest entry's into the gallery by June...to say nothing about all the other ones deserving of the gallery!)

    This is a Magnus custom that could stand beside Vector's with pride.
    Very well done.
