    Ultra Magnus is made from Leader Class DOTM Sentinel Prime. My goal was to give him a movie version of the character design in he Transformers Animated series. I really liked that in the Animated series Magnus was not just a repaint of Prime but without the G1 styled armor, but a whole new design.

    The head was a mish-mash of stuff. The base was the head from a Transformers RPMs Battle Chargers Sideswipe. I saw it in a Goodwill for $1.99. The heads are all over-sized cartoon-style, which made it a perfect fit for a Leader Class scale fig. Gundam pieces, Apoxie Sculpt and Zap-A-Gap took care of the rest. To me, he look like he could be Ironhide's uncle or something (that's a good thing, mind you). The hammer (Sparkcrusher) was made from Thor's hammer (perfect time to find Thor stuff, huh?) and the ladder that I removed from the back of Prime. I added the handle in the center with Devcon plastic welder epoxy and dropped a magnet in the bottom. It attaches to the ladder base on the truck/back for storage. The cannon is from the 12" Iron Man figures that came out when the first Iron Man was released on DVD. I sawed off the barrel and added one of the guns from a Universe Whirl figure. The jet intake vent I added I also got from a Goodwill a while back. Dropped a handle on it and there ya go. Lastly, I hacked up the original shield and added some parts from Gundam 00 Evia's shield. It attaches underneath in Alt mode and can be stored on the rear of Magnus in robot mode.

    That is amazingly badass-tastic! The headsculpt is awesome (it manages to look Prime-ey without looking too much like Optimus Prime-reminds me of RID Prime's super mode), and the colours are brilliant!

    Very nicely done! I always appreciate the effort involved when new heads are made to go with repaints.

    Concept AND execution are both PURE WIN! This is one of the coolest ideas yet for customizing Sentinel Prime and one of the most original Ultra Magnus ideas ever! Awesome work!

    Now that is the stiff right there, so gritty and a perfect fit in the movie world.

    Another absolute Masterpiece. I wouldn't be surprised to see SP repainted as UM, from Hasbro.

    I just spent like five minutes staring at him. That head sculpt and the accessories really sell it.

    Your photobucket link is broken btw.
