    I still haven't received my Magnus yet :(  *sigh*
    so I could NOT complete my previous WIP using only G1 magnus parts + lego

    I thought... 1 think is bothering me THE LEGS!!
    I almost decide to use these for my Nemesis but I'm glad I didn't ;) 

    So here I am trying my hardest to get Magnus (now a stand-in prime) to look his best as a City GOD Commander... so far I'm of with a good start!

    C&C Welcome ENJOY! :D 

    [again I will not allow the base figure magnus/prime to be modded]

    SO FAR:
    I have remove the hinge between the back and the middle parts.
    This will allow a must preferred less bulky leg (but might also leave left over parts as of now, then again I might find other use for those parts :p )
    Also I'll be reusing the Orignal G1 Arms from my other WIP magnus (problem was that magnus could never compete with Nemesis, so I needed a cooler one ;) )
    If cut of/away the toes that are RID God Magnus defaults, this allows the Classics leg the bend backward without obstructing and fortunately give the cab and back wheels enough space for me to construct a decent connection.

    TODO:
    work on a connection system for the classics to combiner with the RID parts.
    3rd'ly I'll work on the proportions of the arms (since that kept bothering me from my last magnus WIP :( )

    UPDATE2:
    F*CK YEAH! the holes I driller are perfect :D  the current construction is tight (check last pic added)

    UPDATE3:
    Carrier mode basics are complete, robot mode Version1 is @ 80%
    I must say I looks pretty bulky and squatted, but it's U.Magnus right?;) 
    Should I leave it like this or seriously bust my head in getting even better proportions? :rolleyes: 

    UPDATE4:
    Before starting on a new upper body.. I though I'll better have a new head!
    As suggested why not make one of all the pieces I like...
    So I have a few options (check last 2pics)
    1: RID Omega Prime with custom mounted guns for antennae
    2: default Omega Prime head (I really like that standard goatee)
    3: default RID Magnus (but I'll try to fit it into to G1 helmet?)
    4: RID Prime with Omega Prime ears :) 

    UPDATE5:
    WOW that seriously was a lot of work mixing those 2head into one :rolleyes: 
    I think it worth it, but for now I keep the other as backup ;) 
    BTW I already have a REV.2.3B but I'll continue after sleeping :) 

    UPDATE6:
    THIS IS FINAL...still haven't received my bl**dy Magnus..
    but it has to come from Canada :(  *sigh*
    anyways, Alt-mode will be revealed when he arrives...
    cuz I can't start painting unless I get the color right :p 

    UPDATE6B:
    small update pictures with other CHUG's[
    still awaiting my bl**dy 2pack to arrive, I'm really starting to worry :( 

    UPDATE7-sneakpreview:
    AWWW YEAH!!! Finally receive Magnus and got him out of his fresh cage :D 
    Tomorrow I can finally finish up alt-mode...
    (only problem now, since the prime stand-in... it now has practically no red)
    -in future I might replace it by a customized KO-

    UPDATE7B:
    OK SO IT'S KINDA LATE NOW, will make more alt-mode pics when I wake up and will put a classics car inside etc.
    I kinda like the whole white & blue, might paint so minor red details...
    or I will wait until I finally order some KO's

    I'm a bit confused as to what you're doing. Are you making a "Classics "CR/RiD" Ultra Magnus"? If so, honestly, I like that figure as is, but if you don't, knock yourself out. I think it'll be interesting to see what you come up with.

    the name GOD in the title refers to the parts it came from :p 
    (thought the GOD could also refer as an upgraded City Commander to be capable of fighting my DEVIL Nemesis Armor :D )
    classics obviously due to the current and final wearer ;) 

    and I HATE the god mangus.. since it doesn't have a normal magnus form...
    that's why I want that G1 flavour.. alt-mode trailer car carrier / magnus bot mode / ULTRA MAGNUS (GOD COMBINED MODE)

    :crazy:  I know to much imagination :drunk

    Yeah, I'm pretty familiar with God Magnus/Ultra Magnus :wink: 

    As for not having a "normal" Magnus form - if you're referring to the G1 style white cab>Prime robot>combined mode, sure, but CR/RiD Magnus =/= G1 Magnus, as they're two very different characters.

    As far as your custom goes, like I said, knock yourself out :)

    get out of my head would you, I had something close to this idea going.....

    now, lets see what you come up with. Will it be your jaw droppers or one of your "what were you thinking, what were you on, and why weren't you sharing?" moments?

    I really do love your drive and creativity though.

    Does this mean your abandoning your other Magnus project then?

    If so you're definitely taking this in a crazy new direction, have fun!

    ok.. will do :D 

    thnx.. we will see won't we :lol 

    chances are 60/40 :rolleyes2  ... thnx bro!

    hahah :tongue:  yeah since I superduper quickly finished Nemesis and this is already shaping up extremely quick and relatively good.. I'd say YES!

    UPDATE3:

    I think the proportions work well enough..but if you can manage to give him some extra height, so much the better,

    Ironic, relly, given God Magnus's crazy I'm-all-legs proportions...

    Yeah, I'd say make him a bit taller, the wide arms are a bit too much. G1 head needs to go IMO. Otherwise, I'm digging the legs so far. Did you do anything special to them, or are they just clipped in there by the lego bits?

    I had do some modding, but was not much...
    getting the lego brace to also function for altmode was even harder...
    since the cutting and un-hinging the side panels made it wobbly...
    but as you can see I've allready solved that and it sturdy as it can get..
    I must say the Nemesis armor is 5-10x thougher and more playable..
    but most of my creation are more focussed on display...

    but yeah you guys are right I'll go and work on a new chest/shoulder system\
    only problem here is I really like the truck side panels, but I'm afraid they won't make it onto Version4 :(

    what do you guys think? In my opinion there's little room for improvement..
    I've spent 2full days laying in bed playing around with different combo and mis-transformation and this here is the one that looks fine and has minimum lego and mods

    does it need any weapons? suggestions?

    okay, honestly, for me, the deal breaker is the way you have the cab sides shoveled up under the shoulders, it just doesn't look right IMO. I really like what you got going, but it still seems like its missing something.
    I like how you used rid magnus head/face, though I hope you will give it a bit of a personality change or recolor. Kinda reminds me of a kid magnus who just got his first armor. LOL

    I like how this is turning out, but I think if you squared him up a bit instead of having cab parts sticking out would do wonders.

    I would.. but there practical no other way :( 
    cuz I need the hands from prime/magnus only leaves me 2 options
    I almost found a better way, but than I had to mod Prime/Magnus...
    thus I no way in HELL gonna mod my magnus when he arrives...
    so my possibility's where very limited...

    I see what you mean about personality... it's growing on my at first...
    I would agree with you, but my resculpt skills are sucky :(

    I like the final result, but not AS Magnus. Maybe as new version God Magnus to go with some kind of G1/CR Hybrid Fire Convoy, or as an entirely new character I think this configuration could be very cool.

    I gotta get back to work on mine, but I've been distracted with a Dragstrip build :)
