    Hey all! This Dual Model Kit by TakaraTomy was done a couple of months ago as an entry to my local custom competition by Hasbro. Finally had a chance to take pics with a proper camera, so here it is...heh...

    It's a conversion from Optimus to Magnus. I didn't do much modding except for the head and shoulder cannons. Repainted it to suit Magnus colors and added some aftermarket decals for 1/24 scale cars.

    For more pics and detailed shots you can check out here:

    And for a 'Work In Progress' shots, you can check it out here:

    I got 6th place. heh. But it was okay, since i got myself a goodie bag with a bunch of Hasbro tf toys and best of all...i get to keep the DMK kit. oh...the DMK kit was sponsored by Hasbro Malaysia and we had to custom it to our creativity...

    Awesome Magnus! It's nice to see an Ultra Magnus repaint of Prime who isn't just white. And is it just me, or does this actually look more like Optimus than Bay's version?
