    FOR THOSE THAT ASKED, THERE ARE ALT MODE PICS ALONG WITH A FEW PICS OF THE HEAD FITTING IN THE CAB! JUST CLICK ON THE PHOTOBUCKET LINK AGAIN. See, I told you it wasn`t any different. j/k

    CUSTOM TRANSFORMERS CLASSICS ULTRA MAGNUS G1 STYLE. THIS MAY HAVE BEEN DONE BEFORE, BUT THIS IS MY VERSION OF HIM. ANYWAY, I FABRICATED A NEW HEAD FROM THE ONE HE CAME WITH BUY GRINDING AND TRIMMING OUT THE EYES AND FACESHEILD AND USING CLASSICS JETFIRES FACE INSTEAD. THEN I CUSTOM PAINTED HIM TO RESEMBLE G1 ULTRA MAGNUS FROM THE ORIGINAL 1980`S TOON. I DIDN`T BOTHER WITH ALT MODE PICS BECAUSE HE LOOKS THE EXACT SAME WAY AS HE DID BEFORE. I ACTUALLY LIKE IT LIKE THAT. THE ONLY THING THAT MIGHT LOOK ANY DIFFERENT IS THAT THE EXAUST PIPES ARE NOW WHITE AND SILVER AS OPPOSED TO ALL BLACK.

    HERE IS A LINK FOR SOME BETTER PICS. JUST CLICK THE THUMBNAILS: http://s107.photobucket.com/albums/m296/WarMachine_01/Classics Ultra Magnus/


    He is up for sale if anyone is interested: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewI...em=220181680564

    See, that is what a classics Magnus should have been. Much more interesting than the white prime.

    That's a real beauty. It's a shame that wasn't how he looked right out of the box.

    Ya know I love the whole white prime as Magnus thing, but the Classics one didn't fit. Now if he looked like this I bet Magnus wouldn't be so easy to find on the secondary market. It's amazing how a few paint aps and different head can make a bland figure look so damn good. Awesome work!

    Lovin' the head, like everyone else has said. It looks perfect. I wouldn't have sold my Classics UM if he looked like this!
