Found Grappel at a TJMaxx last month for $10 and couldn't pass him up. Originally I wanted him to perhaps do an Optimus Prime custom, but he seemed kinda "fat" in robot mode for that... plus, I've done a lot of Optimus customs already, but to-date have failed to make a good Ultra Magnus custom. (I tried doing one from Cybertron Mudflap but didn't like it enough to even take photos) Anyways, I knew I could make the head into a good Magnus simply by shaving off his ear "nubs" and giving him new antennae, which is done now, but I still didn't like the fatness of him and also the windows in front didn't say "Ultra Magnus" to me... my solution became to turn him around and swap his arms (an actual benefit since they come off easy anyway!), and voila! I think the sculpt in this mode lends itself REALLY well to Magnus... there's even a spot in his chest for a Matrix! I took the siren lights off him and glued them to the new robot front to give him more of a "T" chest (and paint will help handle making that T into an "M") Here's some WIP shots, more to come once he's painted. So far I've got him primered but that's all for now. EDIT: added more pics of updates: missile launcher, matrix cavity, alt mode HERE EDIT: started paint (still WIP), added star missiles and comments HERE EDIT: more paint, after white spray paint and another coat of red/blue HERE EDIT: added panel lining and Autobot insignia. Some fun pics HERE EDIT: FINISHED. Final shots HERE EDIT: Edited this post with new photos per suggestion.
