    So it's pretty hard to find G1 Missiles for ultra Magnus, especially the short missiles and missile holders.

    Anyone using a different missile and holder for the new Classics CC upgrade set?

    ideas?

    Some people are using Animated Prowls missles. Also, check the around the Radicons forums. There are guys on the boards making some.

    I'll vouch for darkov. I just bought some from him, they are very good. Contact him, buy from him. You'll like it.

    Do the launchers for the reissue work with the original missiles?

    I have a Hasbro reissue Magnus and I modded the missles to look like the originals. They don't fire anymore but that is not really important to me.

    First I used my Dremel and sanded down the 2 missile guiding ridges in the launcher. Then I cut the missiles in half and inserted them. You can glue them if you like, but mine are tight enough that they will not move. Look just like the originals.

    it's the prowl idea for me. Love everyone's work but $7-15 is too steep for missiles when I can get an additional figure for $7.

    thx everyone.

    so how do you actually get the universe prowl missles to fit onto magnus? There is no post to stick in the port

    "that's what she said."

    takara's reissues? yes, hasbro's? no.

    topic opener:

    the g1 launchers/missiles do not seem to go for that much, but seem to be much rarer now that every one wants a pair of each. but they are g1 parts, so expect to pay about $15 for a set.

    I lucked out and found a G1 UM cheap. it was missing the left large fist and small prime fists, plus one of the ramps were the wrong side but I only wanted it for parts anyways.
