    heres a cybertron magnus im working on, because i got an extra cybertron prime for almost free

    i still have alot to do still, but someone asked me for pics, and i decided i needed some help deciding how im going to paint him when i get through sanding and stuff,and can afford the paint. i do have windows and stuff made for him, just not putting them in until i paint it...and i made the chest shield into a bumper after i took pics,i also have some other stuff i need to attach to the sides of the cab and top when i get all my materials
    so yeah look at my abomonation

    ha ha... I love the hideous colour combinations... don't worry, I know you're gonna paint it. :) 

    This is a serious mod you're doing here. Looks cool!

    My only suggestion would be to replace the head with something else more "Magnus-like". I'm a little weary of Ultra Magnus version who are really just repainted and suped up Optimus Primes. Maybe you're already planning this? You could probably keep the head, and just give him a more humanoid "face"... then graft some cannons/pipes to the sides of his head.

    Hasbro is overdue to do something like this... bring back UltraMag as something other than just a white Optimus!Nice work... can't wait to see the finished product! :)

    Yes i Wanted more then just another prime repaint myself

    actually i do plan it, but i havnt figured out out how to get prime apart if you wanna know the truth...its more then just the screws in his back...some pins somewhere, i have a head that im going to switch it with. but i figured i wont take him apart to change it till right before i paint him,so i only have to take him apart once, because i dont know when that is going to be, whenever i finally decide to finish his alt mode, and can afford the paint.


    And Sock dood.... i wasnt going for a G1 Magnus............. its been done, but yes after i did it i almost thought about going Nemi with him actually, and then i stuck clocker on the back and i liked the way it looked.

    I think my son has one of those trucks you're using for that, it was some kind of "config your rig" dinosaur trapper play set that came with all these parts to build different trucks, a cage, a dinosaur and a few drivers.

    yep i have the cage and some of the stuff, i pulled them out of a bag of parts that were discarded at the thrift store our company uses... if you look close to the leg armor there are shovels by the knees, and on the back there is a bone and rat. after i got the shoulders built, i almost wished i would have used the other truck front but they actually looked to bulky at first, i may still change it after all.

    the chest is from a KO aeriobot set i bought an easter basket for,combined with some zoid parts. the arm wings were leg wings on some transformax jet i got at a dollar store that my niece broke for me. and the wing boosters i dont know what they were originaly for, i cut them off of some spare part i pulled out of a junk bin.
    the head im thinking of using is the helmet from the KO set as a matter of fact..looks really human and has the piping and stuff already.

    i have boxes n boxes of spare parts, that i may never use, but i cant ever pass them up.

    im also thinking of making him a drone using the other cannons missile launchers and key ports, and using a mcdonalds battle bot as a base, i still havnt decided

    :D  Yeah, I thought I recognized his hood ornament. Neat idea, creative too! Most people would just paint him blue and white and call it a day...glad to see you're going the extra, uh, 23 miles on this one! Keep us updated.

    that would be it i believe, except the long trailor part i used had a big front on it that i cut off, so i think it was thisone
    [​IMG]

    i still have the middle caging part, the cage , the claw (which i plan on using)
    and 2 of the small vehicles tops,ones a fire truck, and ones a streamlined suv type thing as well as the long wheel bases with tires, the harness for the dino

    yeah i have to move some parts, and he does have a non armored mode, all the armor but the shoulders come off
    i was hoping for that actually, especially since Cyb prime was such a neat mold, and had so many connectors left over
