Ok so I'm refreshing all my kitbashes and repaints and taking new pics... Voila!
Hmm...that looks oddly familiar...
Nice job bro! I have only one minor nitpick. The gun needs to be white!
Thanks, I did'nt realize that! in the paint shop tomorrow!
BTW onesock, is there an engineering error on this guy? I mean, what happenend
to his knees? They bend on the opposite direction
hey Ptitvite, did you maguns come with the shoulder missiles beings from the same mold, or, or can they be swaped around so the venty looking thing is on top of both launchers while on the shoulders? ....... does this make any sence to any one else?
A lot of people have swapped the thighs, to fix that problem.
Now, let's see the core robot.
Nice paint job bro. By the way you can unscrew the two screws in each thigh and swap them to get better knees.
Mine are the same mold too.
sharp lookin. yeah, mah guns are the same sides too wtf
Kickass, this is the best G1 UM repaint I've seen.
Same mold that is why I put them in this position...
Ya I checked what I could do but my brain knows his ass would be in front...
I think they mean to just unscrew the thighs and swap them to each leg. Doesn't look like a big issue. >.>
No such thing! blasphemer!
The back of the legs don't have the same details as the front but I may be willing to live with it
Dang, that's tight!
I... ...still... ...can't... ...find... ...him...
Looking at the picture, it almost looks like the legs are supposed to be the other way. The side pointing forward is just a solid bar. The back looks like it has vents and others details that ought to be pointing forward...
The original had one. Titanium got it wrong!
still cant fine magnus anywhere here..if do, price are triple..f*** u scalpers!!
They aren't supposed to be that way and they don't match up in the front quite right after you swap them(instead of being rounded the front of the leg is flat after the swap). I swapped mine out last week, you do gain a ton of flexibility in the knee BUT when you transform him to truck mode the swap raises the back tires up just enough that it won't roll.
If you are going to keep him in robot mode all the time its not an issue so the leg swap has its pros and cons.
I did the leg swap... I consider it an improvement.
Wow... after seeing your repaint and Onesock's, I don't think I'm going to be able to hold off doing it to mine... the red at the very least.
Hey, for the full G1 accuracy, shouldn't his upper legs be red too? (toy-accuracy that is)
Also tempting to buy another Armorhide, paint him up white and bash him into a core robot for this figure. Has anyone replaced the head pipes/guns on their Magnus? I find the ones on this figure are sort of... feeble.
Man, if only I could find G1 magnus and I'd repaint him as well!
