    Does anyone know where i can get a more show-accurate black gun for my mp-04? It doesn't matter if it's first party or third, as long as the quality is decent....any recommendations would be appreciated. Thanks guys!

    The gun from MP-02 Ultra Magnus is black. I remember assigning it to my MP-04 before selling it off. I then decided to just spray paint the MP-04 rifle with Krylon Camo black and clear coated it with Future. It's too simple to screw up and the cheapest way of achieving it.

    Yeah MP-2 came with an all black gun, and versions of the first MP Optimus by Hasbro replaced the gray with black on the gun for the later versions (the gray one was actually harder to find for me when they were released). Granted the black MP Optimus gun still had the silver and light blue on it.

    But it also had garish blue paint on it.

    It took me about 4 years to find a black MP Ultra Magnus gun on its own and I found it here from a super awesome member :)

    SQ7 foresees a thread sometime in the future along the lines of, "Hey guys, I used a Sharpie on my MP Prime's rifle and now it's brownish purple. What gives, and how can I fix it?"

    Satomiblood's post provides my answer. He stole my DeLorean, went into the future to check TFW2005.com Creative General Discussion, found that thread, and then came back here. I have his Sport's Almanac, so it's all good.

    No. That is something a sharpie can't fix.

    Well, unless you want it to be tacky, streaky, and purple.

    Only use sharpies if you want your toy to look like shit.

    That doesn't help the op with his boggle, though. That toy is a much smaller size than the MP-04.

    Well, If anyone wants to trade guns I'd trade my Optimus MP-01 grey gun for a Magnus MP-02 gun..

    negative, thats the igear mp-01b trailer....I do agree that it would be an expensive way to get a black gun though.
    the 3rd party rifle in the above post does come in black but it is different but fairly inexpensive
