    I really like the washed look, and that head is badass! Cool mold for a Magnus.

    I love the use of Beast Wars 10th Anniversary Primal's head! It actually fits very well with the movie styled body. It also is really neat how Defender Prime's color actually works very well as an Ultra Magnus. Good Job!

    This is a great piece. I think I'd like a lil' more color in the chest and waist, but a great custom. The head choice really pulls it together. :thumb

    Nice! Simple and effective. I recommend going a bit further with the blackwash and detailing the face and center chestplate, then maybe adding a few metal highlights to the parts and gears and such.

    Great job so far, nice to see new members posting their work!

    I usually frown on going G1 color scheme on the movie molds with the flat white thighs and hands, but you have made it work on this mold. Awesome call with using that head also.

    Overall, great job on a mold that everyone and his mother has kitbashed. :thumb

    Thanks for all the love.

    I've been hangin' onto that head for a while now.
    I found a banged up Primal @ a flea market and was hoping to use it for a Magnus.
    I was going to try and do it with the original voyager prime, but I'm not much for painting. "too much red to cover".
    I prefer the search for the perfect part, in the perfect color, & I'm quite the dremel ninja.
    p3@c3!!

    Looks great man, kind of reminds me of marble stone! Katch, I've done 2 cybertron prime customs already, Ultra Magnus and Motormaster! It is an awesome mold!
