    Hey everyone, heres the finished figure of my WFC Ultra Magnus. You can see the WIP thread is below:

    http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/312747-wfc-ultra-magnus.html

    I made some changes since then, changing the launchers/ stacks on his shoulders, and the head. The head change was due to an...*ahem*...unfortunate accident involving a bottle of acetone and clumsy fingers....

    This figure was also my first attempt at dyeing... using RIT black die on the elbow joint and on all the tank treads..

    You can see what seems to be uneven lining between the white and red areas on his torso and on the back, thats actually a lining on steel colour, but the camera just isnt picking it up well..

    Thanks for looking.

    I like it!
    looks like it's based on the cybertron Starscream mold, is that right?

    Impressive representation of Ultra Magnus, I AM MEGATRON. Alt mode is imposing, but cool and the rest is awe-inspiring.

    I think he means a head without a faceplate/ with a face and mouth.

    Nice! :D  The mish-mash of all those bits & pieces works so well together & he fits right in with the WFC design. Now that is one sweet-ass Ultra Magnus! :thumb

    Very very very interesting take on this figure. I like the pallet used on him, but might have added a bit of silver to the head crest to break up the white and blue. But as a whole, really creative. The more I look at the alt mode, the more I feel that he really works well in the WFC universe. I'm just glad to see it in color, those black and white photos were making me want more! :thumb
