    I've already did a Nemesis Prime, which was a logical choice. (even though Im not to thrilled about the teal)
    Ive seen the Classics Diaclone Prime, but that really doesnt do much for me.
    Any Ideas?

    I had the slightly odd idea a while back of trying to turn Classics Magnus into Classics Ratchet. Sounds counter-intuitive, I know, but check it out:

    -He's mostly white
    -He has a windshield on his chest
    -His big white shoulder pieces would look great with red crosses on them
    -The very Ratchet-like head from Alt. Prowl would fit him perfectly
    -The Classics figures are all kinda amped-up versions of their old selves (Bumblebee as a rally car, Mirage as a more futuristic race car, Astrotrain as a bullet train, etc.) so a Classics Ratchet could be a kind of "industrial-sized" ambulance. In his truck mode, all you'd have to do would be to build a box-shaped piece to clip on to his truck bed (easier said than done, I know).

    Anyhow, that idea might be more work that you had in mind.... just throwin' it out there! :)

    Has anyone tried a Huffer yet? He was a lot smaller, but he was a Truck.

    Nobody (to my knowledge) has figured out how to give Magnus a supermode yet. Another thought would be a new character (or a new spin on an old one) - if you check toy aisles/TRU/whatever, you can find garbage trucks and other trucks that might be adapted into a trailer/supermode for the mold.

    Quite a few have. Most have just repainted it, but others have at least started on it. Tramp over at Transtopia scratchbuilt one. Makes him look kinda like a midget...

    Link to Tramp's finished trailer/armor, for the lazy....

    If a custom doesn't show up here on 2005, I don't usually see it. That said, that is absolutely spectacular. But as someone else here (Redline?) once put it, I'd rather take an existing toy and kitbash it than try to scratchbuild - especially something that complex!

    I really respect the amount of work and all but the end result doesn't look too cool imo, maybe with a sleeker face design it'd be better? It's also way too stocky. Again though, I respect the work done.

    What about g1 snap trap?.
    The head looks a little like primes and if you keep the smoke stacks/gun on his back it would help him look a bit more like snap trap:)

    How about Onslaught, Motormaster, Octane, or even Hotspot (He's upgraded to a Ladder Semi, instead of just a fire truck)?

    I have 3 extra Magnus', and I'm waiting until Botcon is over to start converting them into 3 of the 4 I've listed above.

    I even plan on buying materials to scratchbuild their own trailers. :D
