    It has been a while since I posted my upgrade kit for Classics Optimus Prime.
    I decided that it was time to get Ultra Magnus up to standard.
    So, here he is.
    I haven't done his feet yet and I haven't done any painting but most of the basic kit is now installed.
    I also may have to modify the foot design to fit the Fansproject Commander set.
    Thanks

    Hi Declan.
    It is me. Well spotted. How are you?
    I had some issues with the printer last week. It was a bit of a nightmare and at the same time I had an order for a couple of bits from the OP kit.
    So, when I got up and running, I thought I would get UM done at the same time.
    I'll be getting back to Soundwave soon though. Printer issues are now resolved. Thank goodness.

    I heard on FB, but forgot to comment. Bummer. Hope it wasn't too much of a hassle. Will look around for a Soundwave, as I think it would be cooler to have one of each (one normal, one upgraded).

    New feet done and here is UM next to his buddy OP. The new feet work with the FP kit.
    The shins shown here do interfere a little with the positioning of the FP armour shins but they still stay in place. They just sit a little further out from the leg. Isn't a deal breaker for me.

    Thanks very much.
    The Soundwave kit is still a WIP and is in this forum under classics Soundwave.
    It's a set of parts to bulk up the WFC figure and make him taller. Also add a bit of G1 flavor but with a modern twist. Check it out if your interested in seeing more :)

    This is pretty cool, but does it still transform? I've noticed the cab sides are gone from his arms.

    Never mind, I saw the second picture. I'm gonna have to get this set if I get a classics Prime or Magnus.

    Cool. He always used to be pretty expensive second hand, I think.
    This is the Asia Exclusive version.

    Does the alt mode look any different? That would be my only concern with this.
