    I'm planning to customize an RiD Ultra Magnus, I'm adding heavy artillery to his counterpart Optimus Prime. The versions I'm modding are the Sam's Club Yellow Prime and the Sam's Club Black Magnus.

    Optimus Prime is having his sirens replaced with short cannons that will double as over the shoulder cannons, having 2 missile pods attached to his vehicle mode using his makeshift minicon ports and his ladder is being replaced with a long range cannon.

    I need ideas on what to do to Magnus to change his alt form. I was thinking of maybe adding shields to him to make him an armored transport but I'm not quite sure. I was sort of thinking of adding flip out panels to him to give him the effect of deploying energy shields for himself and his convoy.

    something like this:

    I was wanting their combined form to be the perfect warrior, having both tremendous firepower and superior defense. I'm also going to be getting that new master sword looking upgrade kit for them.

    I also need names for them.

    I need a name for the yellow Prime, Ultra Magnus and their combined form.

    anyways thanks for reading.

    Ebay:
    armored core weapon PVC Figure Store

    the weapons and shield-projector armored bits are in the link above.
    you just need to find which one you want.

    Yellow Fire Truck: how about FLAMEBURNUS? (FLAME-BURN-US)
    Black Automotive Transporter: how about GUARDER? (since he's defense)

    the paints for those 2 are already great, just give it a good panel-line
    with black enamel panel washing.

    Hmmm thanks for the link.

    For their separate names I was thinking:

    Yellow Artillery Truck: Crossfire.

    Black Transport Truck: Blockade.

    Combined form: Dreadnought.

    Another name I'm thinking of using for Magnus is Overload.

    Unless you're really locked into these two variations, my recommendation would be to sell both of them, get the chunk of change and buy some cheaper RiD versions, customize them, and spend the left over cash :)

    They aren't even worth that much money, I see them go on eBay for $30 or less all the time. I got my yellow Prime loose for like $32 shipped.

    Call me silly but I would love to see you use Ultramagnus...paint him pretty much all silver as if it is armor, and give him a shields and all other types of defensive weapons. That's your Defense. Prime is the offense (give him as many rediculous guns as you can...but only one gun that they have to use as a combined force. Defense and Offense are their names...put them together you get one hell of an ass kicking team called Blitz (or Giants if you live in NY:wink: ).
