    Alright, a little story behind this one. I wanted to somehow incorporate Magnus's "White Prime" into the movie line. So I was talking to a friend, and we came up with an idea. What if Magnus had a previous mode before he scanned an Earth Mode? Well, here's what I thought it would be.

    Nice, but the color is a little too solid for my liking.

    The feet are good, but the green crotch scares me.

    He needs a wash, or some other type of highlights somewhere to break up all that pure white.

    That looks great! Really clean paint job. I would suggest some panel lining to give it a little more detail. Great job with all these Magnus customs.

    The solid white is making him looking a little bland. A wash would really help enhance the details, and what's more, you could give his arm gaurds a blue wash while his chest gets red. See where I'm going with this? Other than that, really nice. I'd be impressed you left no spot unpainted, but then this is you.

    I wish people would read...

    His protoform is white Prime. He scans an earth mode, and gains his armored form. Henceforth, the last picture of protoform in front of the earth mode.

    I was thinking it but you said it. :lolol 
    But really a nice paint job all it needs is that wash and it would look pretty sweet.

    Clever idea, making the White Prime his Protoform instead of his inner robot. :)  Nice little adjustment to the mythos.

    I'm one of the small handful of folks who love white Primes, so it's always good to see another one. This one looks really nice! It just feels like it needs something to break up the severity of the white a bit. Maybe some drybrushing or a wash of some sort... or some blue detailing on the legs... or color on the faux-tires. I dunno, it just needs something else. Right now, aside from the head and the pelvis, it kinda has a "just primered" look.

    Hmmm..... new character..... Optimus Primer? Primer Prime? :)

    i agree. white can be done using grey underpainting, then grey/white drybrushing and highlighting.
