    Why the heck did you customize a Botcon figure when you could've just used a mass release version of the mold?

    *sigh*

    Oh well. Whether you paint him or not, at least get rid of that G2 Decepticon insignia.

    agreed, since you can get an onslaught for what? $10/$15?
    i like the idea...just not the base mold colours,

    The head is awesome. Since I don't own the mold is there any way of replacing the head with the original again? Only so that you can paint a regular retail release instead.

    Yea, I'm kind of wondering why the hell you even did this to a Botcon exclusive. I'm all for hacking apart figures, but you could've just as easily bought up an Onslaught or Hardhead to use as the base figure. Anyway, I'm liking the new head. With enough work, this could just as easily become UM. I'm still scratching my head over the decision to use a Botcon figure, though. But it's yours and you can do whatever you wish with it.

    I don't mind what you do to that figure honestly, but as cool as the work you did, i'm getting a much stronger Overlord vibe off this guy for some reason, the head just looks a lot like the Last Stand of the Wreckers comics.

    Don't let the comments discourage ya, as long as it's not a cherry G1 figure, cut er up and make what ya want :D

    Actually, on Last Stand of the Wreckers, it looks like, using that head, you could make an excellent Pyro! :D

    I could see this working. Vehicle mode kind of gives me an Animated UM vibe, for whatever reason.

    I'd definitely would like to find out where the head came from.
    Personally I hate the mold, onslaught, hardhead, clench.
    Though, I do like the triple gatlins, would like to know if that actually came on clench or not, if not, where or how did you do it?

    i want to cry, why couldn't you just used a regular onslaught!

    now there is one less clench in the world, and the figure is already limited enough....you did a great job, but it does make me sad to see such a figure was used

    Well the head is from - iGear Transformers IG-TF001 The City Commander Ultra Magnus upgrade package - you get an ultra head so i used it

    YES i know it botcons exclusive - and i have also HardHead too for customizing. but its doing something out of the box - taking something that it is :so calld exclusive and changing it - it is the same mold as the univers with small modification i like the blue colors - dont like the head and the pink parts.
    I know its not magnus is aSOMETHING new and crazy by me ...
    Ohh and yes i can get the HEAD back
