    The head really doesn't go with the mold.

    And Ultra Magnus is a car carrier, not a plane.

    The only thing I don't like about it is the neck looks a little too long. Otherwise, I like it!

    Yeah, what they said. The neck looks too long, and Magnus is not a plane.

    On a positive note: I really appreciate what you tried to do, but I would suggest keep up the practice and just consider which figures you are bashing and what that character truly is and what modes say the most about them. Keep it up and dont give up though

    I'll agree with most of the folks here...

    It doesn't look great, but I think most of that is the way that the neck sits on top of that plate on top of Overcast. RID Ultra Magnus' neck is a bit long anyway, so seeing it perched up there looks way too awkward.

    I would suggest that you cut it down, maybe cut away some of the connector plate too... so the head is nestled closer to the body.

    I'm not sure if it suits Magnus to be a spaceship, but I'm surprised to see that head actually doesn't look too big for that body. I would have thought it would appear to be way oversized.

    It would also help if the head color was a closer color blue to what is on the bot already. Can you make it darker?

    Sure, the neck is too long, but...

    Who said Magnus can't be a plane? Why not? Prime doesn't have to be a semi and Megatron doesn't have to be a gun.

    Matt, you cast your own figure's head and made him your own. Not bad at all! Keep up the good work!

    I don't mind Magnus not being a truck either and if do like some others have suggested by shorten the neck and paint the lighter Blue on the Head a Darker blue and would look really good... or even if you paint the darker blue to match the head it would look good as well.

    It is his kitbash. Ultra Magnus can be whatever he wants him to be.

    Anyways. I'm not exactly sure what you were going for with this kitbash? Just trying to make use out of Overcast?

    Interesting concept. The only thing I see really hurting it is, like everyone else pointed out, the neck seems a bit too long. Other than that, I like this idea.

    I think the whole concept is fine; I'm wondering if there might be some technical limitations as to why it'd be difficult for Matt to get the neck a bit shorter.

    I think the thing that would really add to this character's uniqueness as an Ultra Magnus remold would be if you repainted Overcast so he had more defined "Ultra Magnus" colors.
