    how would you handle this?



    would it be possible to mod animated ultra magnus in such a way that the body would have cybertron optius primes head built onto it?

    and would it also be possible to mod the figures body in such a way that it would have a mid waist rotating ball and socket joint at the waist?

    and what could be done to give the body a better set of mulitjointed rotating wrist jointed hands?

    i figure with those mods and a redesigned chest and the right colorscheme animated ultra magnus could make for a much better animated soundwave/soundblaster figure

    okay i have managed to build cybetron optimsu primes head itself onto ultra magnus body using a dremil and a very small ball and socket joint salvaged from one of armada sideways minicon riders with it serving as a ball jointed neck/hinge for the ehad

    so far i have managed to completely gut the electronics from the body and i figure i wil l have to use one of those swing saw machines to cut the figure body in half at the mid waist

    i am not entirely sure but i ithink i ight even be abel to swueezee in a bionicle ball and socket joint with it serving as a mid waist rotating joint

    i am still trying to figure out how to mod the back mounted cannos to detach in robot mode to serve as a set of hand held missile cannons

    i think i just migh have to replace them with a set of shoulder cannons from cybertron downshift

    still no clue what i will use to replace magnus chest with to give him soundwaves classic looking tapedeck chest

    maybe i can just salvage the chest from cybertron soundwave and build it into the ultra magnus chest itself

    I'm no kitbasher but I think it could be done but would require quite a bit of work to pull off.
    Plus this thread should be in the Radicons section.

    Never been crazy enough to think of something like that, but it could work ... I guess.

    Having Cybertron's aesthetic mixed with Animated's might not look too good.

    I think you'd be right about the Bionicle joint fitting in there, but i have a custom Gestalt in the works with a Bionicle joint as a waist, and the weight of 3 Deluxes is enough to make it topple. I'm not sure how heavy Magnus is, but it might not be strong enough. Just sayin'. I'd see about a ratchet joint personally. Something like a Energon combiner peg and socket would at least give rotation, and it's stronger than a Bionicle Joint.

    Good luck with it, though.
