    I posted some blurry pics in a thread a while back for someone asking about using a MyClone head on Laser Magnus. Well I was able to take a few more quick pics that are a bit better.
    As soon as I saw this guy up for preorder I wish they had of sculpted a new head. Since they gave him the big bot colors he needed the big bot head. So I took a MyClone Magnus head, chopped the post off, drilled a hole, painted it, and stuck it on the peg that is present when the Laser Magnus head is still in the ab section.
    I wanted a more permanent bash, but that would have been more work to the MyClone head I didn't have the time to do. Besides this one is removable (and has to be for transformation). :)

    Yeah, a specially sculpted Magnus head would have been pretty sweet. But you did a pretty good job. Good work!

    If they used that basic design and gave it a different chest, that would be a great way to design a Classics magnus.

    Looks good. Never even thought of using diaclone heads. Might have to paint over some of the eye's to give him the robo-squint effect, and without them looking over cutesy anime looking.

    I still would've bought him if he had that head.

    Thanks for the kind words everyone. I really wish I could've done the more extensive bash, but I'm quite pleased with this one. :)
