    I wanted to do either Cybertron Ultra Magnus or a Cybertron Optimal Optimus, and couldn't decide. Then I saw that SamiWCP was doing one, so i started mine. Thanks for the motivation, fellow 'Bot.

    I have only finished the trailer so far.

    Jet Pack for Super Magnus:

    And my favorite part, the cannons..

    I took an extra Prime and used 2 of the dual cannons, instead of one dual and the ion cannon. I wanted him to have more Firepower. To make his cannons, I took two Prime Ion Cannons and 2 cannons from Cyb. Sky Shadow. That way Magnus gets more of a G1 look in Alt Mode, and more firepower with 6 missles total. So far so good.

    This is my second project, so be kind. Post more when finisished.

    Pretty good so far. Are you going to give it a new head in robot mode by any chance, or at least mod the existing one?

    wow there is so many repaints of this guy in ultra magnus colors now... what happened? everyone decided to start repainting him at the same time?

    but it is nice to see this one incorperates a little more then repainting, very nice. i'd buy this one over the others.

    The missile design you did really seals the deal in terms of making this dude look like Ultra Magnus. It changes his look up appropriately. Awesome work so far!

    Hey man, just FYI - if you can shave down the regular Prime head that comes with Cybertron Prime, the Magnus head from G1 - at least, in my opinion - works awfully well with that sculpt. I kept trying to talk myself into doing this same repaint (me = no time for kitbashing) and was playing around with it.

    I've you've got an old school G1 Magnus, I'd suggest at least pulling his Magnus head off and popping it on the shoulders of your repaint, just to have a look. It looks pretty sweet. :)  Not sure if this'll help you or anything.
