    So, I like Diaclone Magnus. His colors are awesome IMO, and he'd make a cool addition to my armies.

    But I'm at an impasse...I don't know what TOY to make him. I want something recent and nicely articulated. RiD, Cybertron, Classics, that sort of design. I don't like the Movie designs, and the TFA designs are fine but not what I'm looking for on this project (cause redoing TFA Magnus is just obvious...change the white to blue and blue to red and that's about it...).

    So I was wondering, anyone got opinion on what toy could be a good Diaclone Magnus repaint? I was thinking Classics 2.0 Onslaught might be a good idea. Possibly. Voyager Movie Prime is a very slim possibility.

    I know the obvious Classics Prime idea of course. But I'm looking for something that would look good in blue and red with some grey highlights mostly.

    Diaclone Magnus the toy can be found here, so you guys know what color scheme I'm talking about:

    Thanks.

    I've been using Nightwatch Movie Prime in my classics collection as "Powered Convoy" for a while now, though, since he's 90% of the way there already he's not much of a repaint project, but there's a lot of detail-work opportunity
