    I like the repaint, it works very well in that mold. Maybe a bit too "dirty".
    I don't like the head, although :-/ It has too big antennas.

    Hmm I think its suppose to be Ultra Magnus. I think its not half bad, I think the head is a little bit odd, but all and all very nice.

    Welcome aboard,, man! I'm curious, did you hand paint the entire figure? was it all dry bushed with out a base coat? You obviously put a lot of work into it. The head remold/mod looks good.

    I started off with base coats of krylon spray. Then I went over the details in testors enamels. finally a black wash to get the war torn look.

    nice work.

    kudos for not only this being your first repaint, but the fact that it's showing you're thinking outside the box, you had the balls to paint with enamels, and it's not a typical repaint (you were quite creative)

    keep it up!

    Not really critique-ing but UM looks like him mostly,
    but his Antenna on his head look like Vulcan ears from
    Star Trek.Sorry hope you don't take it too bad.
