    Hmmm.... Superion eh?


    I am getting close to finishing the mods on my TF:RoTF Ultra Magnus.

    I am not 100% happy with my head choice as of now, mind if I borrow your idea?:thumb  If it looks better, I may run with that. I do realize I'll have to do some work to make him more movie like, but hey. That's what we do!

    My UM uses two Voyager Primes to make a "perfect transformation" car carrier, been workin' on it off and on for 6 months! :banghead:

    Dude, I recognized the Superion head right away, never knew it would make such a great choice for Magnus. Very nicely done!

    I was initially skeptical, but this looks pretty much right on for Magnus. Nice call.

    Wow, missed this yesterday.

    Very nicely done. I would say, if I did not get the Fansproject upgrade armor, this would have been a great option. I have always liked this mold for Prime, it's just hard to find for a decent price. Too bad all the KOs are gone for Ebay :(

    lol, i stared at that thing for half an hour, trying to figure out how to get in the insides to take the prime head out.

    i wound up taking a hack saw to the prime head (awesomely, i was able to save it). And I made magnus a neck and I glued his head into the rotator. So the head still has the same articulation as the Cyb. prime head.

    That's inventive!! :lol  You can take a soldering iron to the two pins that hold on the back torso cover. Once you slide that off, you can slide the head right out.

    Great job, man. makes me want to do another Magnus.
