    Edit>> Throwing the others up here so people don't miss 'em.

    I was fiddling around with my Pulsar Convoy digibash (which can be seen here) the other night because I realised that I hadn't done one for a Liger Convoy shot. I also received a PM from Ops_was_a_truck, asking if I had thought about making an Ultra Magnus digibash. So I gave it a shot there and then since I already had the pictures sitting in my photoshop folder and here's the result:

    Vehicle mode:
    [​IMG]

    Super Robot mode:
    [​IMG]

    As for my Pulsar Convoy update, I decided to try give him a slight make over, make him more his own thing than a complete Black Convoy clone. Then I realised he ended up with slightly similar colours to another evil version of Convoy/Prime: Motormaster.
    So here's the new form for Pulsar Convoy, Galaxy Force Motormaster:

    [​IMG]

    Now, when I went to find a picture for the Dark version of Liger Convoy, I found that no one was doing any pictures of Galaxy Convoy with just Dark Ligerjack linked up, only regular Jack or both of them. I figured I could just digibash a regular Liger Convoy picture, but it ended up looking all wrong, it was boring looking altogether and didn't look very much like the real toy. So, I decided to do my own Dark Ligerjack recolour, making him look somewhat undead-like. Here's "Zombie-Jack" with Motormaster:

    "Liger Master":
    [​IMG]

    So, the question is, am I the only one who prefers GF "Motormaster" over Pulsar Convoy? Did I do a decent job on "Zombiejack"? Does GF Ultra Magnus look enough like his G1 counterpart?
    Only you can answer that~

    that Magnus looks swell, except for one thing... the head still looks just like Prime.. need to do something about the head's colors I think...

    Mmm, yeah. I definitely agree with you. I'm not very good at super imposing stuff onto my digibashes, so colouring is definitely the best way to go about it... but what colours are Magnus-y, but different from Prime?

    Decided to give "Zombiejack" his own digibash and came up with something I think looks a bit better than he does in the "Liger Master picture" (so I edited it, too).
    I still haven't come up with a decent name for him, I was thinking "Wraith Jack", "Spectre Jack", and a few other undead related things, but nothing really feels right...
    Anyway, here's the beast mode (robot mode is on the way):

    You'd think I have an "evil repaint fetish" or something, wouldn't you? :p

    But then the horns or whatever those things are have to be white and that's it.
    Correct me if I'm wrong but aren't Magnus colors:

    -Blue Eyes.
    -Blue Helmet.
    -White antenas.
    -Grey? face.

    Well, I've made an attempt to graft someone else's head that is more "Magnus-y" onto the picture. I'm not very good at these things though, so it looks kind of off to me. Anywho, here it is:

    That looks wicked. I love the new head. I'd buy that. Of course, I guess that is kind of a given.

    i like the vehicle mode on magnus. robot mode's a bit of a Captain America-looking bot though. :D  would've preferred red shins a la G1 magnus or something, but it looks good.

    hasbro really ought to consider this... a recolored base prime body with a different, car carrier sort of 'trailer' [it's not like the current trailer's that big of a deal in vehicle mode anyway].

    red legs where prime's are blue, and the new head is nice, but I was just figuring you'd decorate the head like Magnus, not Ultra Magnus... make it mostly white with a blue moutplate and red eyes :thumb  as far as superimposing... other than scale, maybe you tweak the head through perspective (not this case, just saying) , and then blurr the VERY edges around the head where you cut it out, that way it'll blend into the new picture and not look out of place... a wonderful tip I got from Lazerbeak! :thumb

    I like the UM a lot. I would buy this easily. Funny though, he makes these colors look good where Ramjet sucked.
