    I wanted to make this a poll, but I don't see the option. Oh well..

    I've had the idea for two different customs using the PMOP mold. I wanted to do one as Ultra Magnus and the other as Motormaster. Thing is, I can't do both. I picked up an extra PMOP when the reissues were cheap. At that time, I only had the idea for Motormaster. I later came up with the Ultra Magnus ( and even did a digibash to see how he'd look ). Now the price has gone up on the Ginra/PMOP reissues so I can't/won't pay that kind of price for a figure I'm gonna paint/dye. So which of my two custom ideas should I do? Vote in this thread, and the winner will be the one I make.

    Tough choice, but going with UM since he combines with the trailer similar to PM Prime.
    Painting the cab mode all white sounds a little plain though. Maybe add some light blue's like MP UM has
    Filling in the hollow space on the trailer might be tough.

    Ultra Magnus using this head:

    It should be about the right size, a little on the small side, but I think it would work.

    I say Magnus since PMOP was already released in Black and it might end up looking too close.

    Magnus, since he does combine in a similar manner. It just makes sense.

    Magnus would be cooler, but I thought dying something white hadn't worked?

    Magnus would make much more sense. Yeah, the paint scheme has been done to death...but not on molds where it's really appropriate or deserving (Armada OP and MP OP, I'm looking at you).

    Josh's picture reveals how well this idea works.

    The voting is 9-5 in favor of ultra magnus. I guess I'll need to really make a decision on how to arange the blue/red/white on the trailer to make it look descent.

    BTW, here's the digibash I did before:

    Hey Josh, when did you do up that pic? Was it a quickie for this thread or something you already did in the past?

    That's why I also mentioned painting. Some parts I would die ( like any black on motormaster, or the red thighs on Magnus ), the rest would be Krylon Fusion.

    Given the popularity of this vote, this bash will have to be moved up to second spot. Right after my alt reshell. It will be my triumphant returnt to kitbashing.

    I like that. The colors complement each other really well.

    Don't take it the wrong way, but I changed some things on your digibash, to in my opinion, look a bit better. Maybe you'll like the suggestions, who knows?

    Mine compared to yours. All I did was add more blue. If you don't like all of the blue on the legs it's not a big deal, but I personally find that leaving the whole middle section of "Hi-Q/Ginrai" there blue looks a lot better than having most of him red so I'd strongly recommend considering that at least, as long as you agree of course.
