    He is complete! Someone mentioned the white head, and it got me thinking, and eventually it got me repainting the head.
    Anyway, this is my Version 2.0, most of you have seen the original UM, which I got a commission off of. I don't want 2 of my customs ever looking the same, so I did some things different this time around.

    To begin with I started with a Nightwatch prime. being NW prime has no flames, all these were computer stenciled onto the body of the truck, then airbrushed. Like all my customs, UM is about 99% enamel paint.

    He's finished with a little Future floor finish, for an unbelievable shine.

    Great job F_R, I honestly like the first one better, hard to top that one though. Great use of fodder as well, Unicrons feet work surprisingly well as the forearm armor.

    first, let me say that this rocks! secondly, i agree with tony. the first one was better, but that may have been due to the "surprise factor".

    but this is definitely a piece to be proud of. it actually got me thinking of getting an LC OP to try to make my own magnus.

    thanks for all the compliments guys! I think the idea to change the head to white, came from this board. Like a few of you, I like the 1st version better, but the paint app are much nicer on this version, higher gloss, more detail, no mistakes, no "i shouldv'e done that" etc.

    Guess what is next....
    here's a 1 letter hint....

    I actually think I like this one better. Honestly, if I had to be really really nitpicky, I'd say the only thing I don't like is the supermode head, but that's it.

    You can see the legs in the flash 360 link, and also in slide #13 on my website. I'm realizing now I shouldv'e taken more full body shots.
