    I like Omega Prime, but his proportions suck. I like Burning Convoy, but his trailer sucks. I don't like RID Magnus at all. So I decided to pare off all Magnus' robot parts and all the parts that aren't used for God Convoy and make him into a drone that can be reconfigured into a trailer for RID prime.

    Removed Magnus' head, removed his arms and the shoulder joints, removed sections of the car carrier wall, removed the two cannons from Magnus' gun, and stripped out the section that restricts his waist from collapsing as far as it does now. That's what's pictured.

    And I've since sanded down an inch of the chest so the plate fits closer, added pegs to the guns so Prime can hold them. Do I need to say it's a WIP and state my future intentions to avoid having these moved in the future?

    if this is a WIP, then this should be in Radicons. especially if parts are removed, sanded and modified.

    got to admit, the pics made me do a double. triple-take. that's a good thing with me.

    Yeah, can you move it for me so I don't have to repost?

    In the future, simply state what you did in the above quoted portion that's bolded. As pictured without clarification, it looks like a mistransformed fan mode (which is cool in its own right, but is not a custom, as I previously noted).

    It's like you added Roller to the Car Robots universe and bulked him up while adding the ability for him to merge with Prime. I like it!

    Updated pictures. Shortened his combined chest, attached shoulder missiles via magnets (by total accident they can now pivot back for non-combat), attached guns to backpack via magnets, added ankle armor to change the way his feet look, figured out a way for God Roller to hold all the armor parts, and fitted the God RV (or mobile command center) together better to eliminate gaps and make it a nice brick. Still need to make Roller and the RV more solid with some magnets, need to fill out the combined mode abs, need to fill out the ankle armor a little more, need to add barrels to his over the shoulder cannons, need to add rubber soles to his feet for traction to pose better, and need to enable a combined rifle mode for God mode.

    Really pleased with him now that he's smaller he's more manageable. He's only a little bigger than leader class and smaller than Primus now.

    Looks much better than the original Omega Prime. If it looked like this, I'd consider getting a Magnus to pair with my Prime. :thumb

    I'm probably just going to keep the spare parts, I like to have a lot of random parts lying around because I do a lot of customs. The hands are just the standard Omega Prime hands.

    These pics show most of what I did. Of course I'll answer any specific questions.

    I've got to admit I LOVE this idea, and if you dont mind I'd like to borrow it and modify for a project I've been dreaming up... something I think SQ7 would get a kick out of
