    So here it is, all done. I posted it as a new thread this time because he is all complete. The things I added since the last post are all abdominal metals, windshield and lining, fender lining, rear tail lights, windshield visor, side of head details, and overall touching up.

    Looks awesome, Magnus is yet another that missed the movie line-up that shouldn't have (such a long list too.) I'm feeling the urge to get back to my Leader Magnus that I shelved a while back, there's just one missing piece I have yet to find though.

    Thanks!

    So what's the missing piece for yours? I think in the 3rd movie, I already saw a new Ferarri as an autobot coming in (guessin it's Hotrod). I think Prime will die, Hotrod will come up to replace Prime, and they'll bring Magnus in (hopefully) and Grimlock too! It'd be cool to bring in Skywarp and Thundercracker too.

    That would be pretty sick, though Bay might find a way to screw em up. The missing piece I spoke of is still top secret, mainly since I havent found it on the shelf yet and I dont want it to become more scarce if you catch my drift. When I do find it, the WIP will begin, and it will be very clear why I wanted it.

    Great paint job.
    The metallic dry brushing really brings it out.

    That's what I was aiming for, the metals contrasting the cleaner white. Good eye and thanks! I was actually going to add some red striping but then when does Magnus ever have red stripes so I left him as close to Magnus (classics more or less) as possible.

    Well of course a lot of liberties are taken by us fans, and while the appeal of a white clone of Optimus Prime is indeed awesome, I loved how he became more than that in RID.

    2 sides of the same coin, yours and mine.

    Keep up the awesome work.

    Maybe the city commander it looks like on some parts it would fit besides the foot area i personally dont have the city commander to much money if it was like 50 bucks id buy it.But in the head and chest area eams like a perfect fit imo.

    I wish man, I actually have that figure too and it's too small. I am really waiting for that voyager class jetfire/armor which is due for this upcoming fall I HOPE!

    Thanks for the comment ljjnico, I'm in the process of making another one of these and when the voyager class Jetfire comes out, I'll be making his armor definitely. In the mean time, I am about to post another Magnus with full armor (different mold though).
