    Just a fun take on the character made popular by FrogDNA awhile back. Not really movie, not really universe, but somewhere in between I guess. Love the character and when I saw Frogs version I just knew I had to take a shot at it. This guy had been a WIP for about 6 months, just sitting on my workshop table all primed up, so I got to painting it last weekend. Think it came out rather nice. He'll be displayed with my MP Magnus made by Mr. Ray of these boards, and a I-gear Ultra Leader in the display case. Thanks for checkin it out, and as always Comments are always welcome! Hope you enjoy your Easter weekend Folks!

    Man I really wish this mold was redone similar to this. It makes a great Ultra Magnus.

    And you did a really great job showing that again. Thumbs up!

    Thanks guys!

    Yeah, still transforms. Alot of paint rub points though:(  Will work on getting some shots.

    I wanted to paint the area around the front windows blue at first, but decided against it for a more "typical" alt mode look. When transformed, it's painted so that all the blue is hidden, and it's just a white and black emergency rescue vehicle.

    The swords actually came in the i-gear CC set as well. I just got 2 sets, so I used both swords here repainted. I used the other head on a TF:p rime UM as well, posted about a week or so ago here.

    That's be the gun from the I-gear city Commander set that's long been sold out. Had to modify the hand post to fit the 5mm peg hole in the Fakerbusker's shapeways hands.
    Yeah, it's easy enough to do. Hardest part is getting the head attached, though if you don't want up/down articulation of the head, a simple modification to the ball joint hole in the head might allow it to snap onto the existing LED peg that is left when you remove Sentinels head.
    Thought of doing those blue as well, but went in favor of black for truck mode.
    Thanks man. Yeah, that was definitely the inspiration here. Although I went with my own color pallete and placement. I also disliked the stacks and missile launchers he used so I incorporated them together in a way that works better IMO. Plus they peg in/out very easy:) 
    Big thanks!
