    I'm a huge Magnus fan, and I loved FrogDNA's awesome custom he did awhile back like this, so I figured I'd give it a go today. The notion struck me to work on this and take a day off from the Dyno's until my figures from Snarl and Sludge come in. Still need a Uni. Onslaught for Sludge, so if anyone has one for cheap, PM me! Built this little mock up in about 2 hours or so, mostly fidling with the head to get it on their solidly. Got it on a nice Balljoint though, so well worth it. Getting the gun to fit these hands was a bit of work as well. I'm likin how he's turning out. The flags are mostly for fun, but will be painted white with autobot waterslides applied when finished- completely removable of course! The KO Powered Commander missile launchers are also removable and screw on/off by their original pegs. Getting the head on disabled the head LED, but the blinking flashers on either side, and all the sound effects still work. Probrably start paintwork on him real soon. Cheers!

    I think it will look great when it's painted.

    Thanks guys, I just literally started on this guy a few hours ago and liked it so much I thought I'd give ya'll a peek. Definitely alot of painting to come!

    It seems the inspiration just keeps comin today. Just made me a Pyro for my Wreckers collection as well. Hot damn. Took the headless RTS Grapple (from making my WWII Swoop) ditched the crane, added Uni. Inferno's canon, and transplanted the extra HoS Optimus head I got (came with Knight Morpher Anhilator) on him. Looks good too. Gonna add another chestpiece to him I think, to more resemble the comic LSOTW. Cheers!

    I like everything about this, but I think you should lose the flags. When did UM even have those? Was that a comic I can't remember?
    I love the hammer though. Can't wait to see it painted!

    Randy!

    Thanks guys, and you won't have to wait long. Weapons are almost done as I type this.
    Thanks Randy. Yeah, the flags are just a fun gimmick for me. just a little something extra, but fully removable, and when finished I'll just do a few shots of him with the flags for kicks, and the rest of the photos will be flagless :)

    The flags and big hammer give me a samurai vibe.The truck panels look like armor.

    Thanks man!
    Man I never thought of that until you said it, now I really see it. To add to that, he also has 2 Drift-like swords on his back that you can't see from these angles. Ha, dang man, not intentionally shooting for that look, but it is there. Though like I said, the flags, and the swords, were just for fun:)

    This looks promising, but I think the head is a little off stheticwise. I think you should try a City Commander head instead.
