    hey guys this is my latist custom some of you may have noticed im fond of doing different vershions of primes lol. a while back another member posted an ultra magnus made from a star wars cross over toy and i loved it. had to do my own. mines in a very different style and the colour scheme is much darker. hes not finished yet he needs allot of touch ups. but at this point you can see my overall concept. little bit of back story so i can try and fit him into the move verse here

    20 years after what has became known as the incident dark moon ultra magnus hears of a new threat on earth. untill this point he had been upstanding from the war growing tired of the constant deaths and untold destruction. now that Galvatron has risen on earth fuelled with the power of unicron he fells he has no choice but to intervene. on his way to earth he stops on a mars and scans a newly operational Mars rover admiring the earthlings advances in technology and its ability to cover rugged terrain. he now makes his way on the last leg of his journey to earth hopefully able to stop galvatron with his brother optimus once and for all

    again hes not finished but please let me know what you think of the concept i know hes a bit rough round the edges lol

    Great job, I also like the (unintended?) homage to the diaclone version of Magnus; well at least the inner robot of Powered Convoy.

    It looks like a bendy Prime head, i.e. the one from the armada deluxe mold.

    The work here looks REALLY good! I'd like to see some white as well as some red being a bit more prominent. I think that the color palette and scheme need to be altered ever-so-slightly. I hope that helps :thumb

    Looking good, from a distance he looks a bit like Nova Prime fromt he IDW comics.

    I've got one of these here to turn into a LSOTW, the problems I have found are that the legs like to pop off and the wheels tend to get in the way of arm posability, have you found any problems with yours when doing this custom?

    about the wheels the top ones on his legs came of and the model still looks really good this opens up the arms more. i left them on cus i was going for more of road look but it does look good with out them. hope this helps
