    I wanted an Ultra Magnus with a little white Optimus, and dangit, I will have one!

    First off, several parts need to be removable/removed leading to minor parts forming (unless you count them as weapons, wink!)

    Secondly, Hasbro QC screwed me over and my CW UM has no wheels on his trailer section.

    I will answer any other questions.

    Wait. He had no wheels on the trailer? Now that is sad.

    Anyways, lovely job with the mod. :thumb

    Yep, came out of a sealed box with only cab wheels, but i bought him at a convention cheaper than retail would have been, so it's not too annoying, but I need a new one or at least wheels soon.
    Thank you for the compliment as well!

    Since your not using the cab, can't you just pop the wheels of it and put them on the trailer?

    Tried that, they are slightly too small, like a millimeter or two.

    I got CW UM for 39, a rotary tool for 10, and exacto knife for 3, a screwdriver for 1, superglue for 2, 2 rare earth magnets for 3, and Classics UM for 20, even including the time and effort, I'd say this is cheaper at around 80, and a more G1 accurate trailer, since I don't have much money and most of this is reusable.

    Nice mod, it's definitely better than having the very small stock cab in there. I'd be curious to see how well a Deluxe Prime like the Classics one that was released a while ago would fit.

    As I see this Magnus is not Magnus at all.. Its a armor shell for Minimus Ambus. I never saw this as the True Ultra Magnus...but a completely different character pretending to be Ultra Magnus.. But I do like how you integrated the Classics Magnus with this Trailer..
