    Well here he is...I'm at the point where I'm not sure if I should add more stuff to him or just let him be...Sorry no alt mode for now because he has not been clear coated...suggestions will be appreciated...also the pics have revealed some spots that need touching up.

    Great job. The paint actually looks like it was factory done. Keep up the good work.

    Came out terrific! Very clean and shiny, even without the clear coat. Everytime I see a protoPrime I regret never getting him.:( 

    Though I must admit, not a fan of the simplistic colour sceme with the complex figure, but that's all I'll say.:)

    seeing as how you havnt made any attempt to clarify that you were just joking, you obviously were serious so consider yourself warned. -TFW2005 Staff

    thanks guys....and i know it's not to the taste of some...but i wanted to go with the white prime approach to him...and yes i agree he is not ultra magnus...he is just magnus...i've asked for a title change but it hasn't happened as yet....i was thinking of either doing a black or grey wash on him...but i've never done one before so i'm hesitant about doing it...or maybe i'll pick up some panel lining markers and go that route....suggestions?

    Or go all sparkly clean with a light blue wash. It'll make 'im look fresh as snow. X3

    Looks very clean and I like the spots of colour on the front, my only criticism would be that his back (the backpack of meteor-mode stuff) looks -too- clean. Maybe detailing up some of the vents or other sculptings would be worthwhile. :D

    Personally, not a fan of the White Prime=Magnus repaints, but if it's gonna be done, that's a nice way to do it. Very, very sharp paint job.

    I would definitely support the panel lining as a way to bring out some of the great detail on that mold.

    Guys. next time you see a post like that, don't keep on quoting it, just use the "report post" button! So I don't have to keep editing multiple posts :redface2:

    thanks redline...i also agree with the back looking really plain...i just need to figure out the design first then i'll paint it....a blue wash sounds interesting....does anyone have a pic where it was done?
