    i have been giving this a bit of thought lately

    the idea is that i want to swap out red alerts head for transfomrers energon superion maximus's head

    with superions viking head spikes being replaced with a set of modded antennea salvaged from energon shockblasts lower left arm moutned battle shield

    and red alerts big honking missile cannon being replaced with rid dreadwing's missle launching gatling gun cannon

    i figure red alert would make for a even better transformers cybertron version of animated ultra magnus since red alert does have that hammer cannon gun and all

    done up in the right colorshceme this could totally work for magnus's new look

    Maybe if you work up a digibash of what it might look like... I dunno, I'm not really feeling it based on this so far.

    Would you replace the missile with anything? It's doable as long as you get the head right but right now I'm thinking stretch.

    A couple of years ago you wouldn't get away with it but with Animated Ultra Magnus and Fansproject City Commander people have gotten used to the idea of UM not being a transport vehicle.

    You should post a thread in Radicons. Pictures would help as well.

    It'll be tough to get any other head in CDRA's place, you'd need to completely rework the flip out breastplate to do anything with it, and probably muck up the neckhole the head flips down into. It's far from a simple parts swap as that head is (as oddly shaped as it is) specifically designed to fit perfectly with the chest piece and fold neatly into the neckhole.
