    Mostly paint/chrome changes. The man serisously needed some red on his chest and some detail on his truck cab.

    One structural change: Smokestacks on the side of the cab? That don't make no sense... I put new ones behind the cab where they belong.

    Sorry for crap photos.

    What kind of red did you use?

    Also, can you take pics of his robot mode next to a Classics figure? I want him to replace Classics Mags, but I'm afraid the scale won't work...

    Sweet work, man. It's amazing how little changes can improve a figure SO much, especially those new stacks.

    Wow. That's damn good. I do think you should add back in al ittle bit of detail to the chest though like the vent things on the lower chest

    How did you make the changes to the stacks, and which ones did you use. I want to do the same to mine.

    The red is Model Master Acryl "Gaurds red" number 4632.

    While I don't have the picture you seek right now, I can tell you that Magnus is a full head taller than Mirage, but significantly shorter than voyager Magnus.

    The stacks were easy. I simply sliced off the old ones with a razor knife. The new ones are simply super-glued on. No drilling or anything like that.

    The toy the stacks came from was so generic that I don't really know what to call it... It was a die-cast garbage truck toy in the toy section of the local drug store. Super cheap. Just look at generic toys until you see something for five bucks that has the stacks you want.

    I'm surprised you didn't add red to the shins... but it definitely looks better. I decided I'd do those very same changes the moment I saw the final pictures of the toy... just havn't gotten one yet :(

    I haven't seen this toy in stores yet. I've also never seen a Rodimus, but I was able to order him online. I may never see an Ultra Magnus. :(
