    Hey gang. Here’s my 10 minute Ultra Magnus Hammer custom.
    2138B120-C49D-4124-AC7C-1502A79F2029.jpeg

    There’s gonna be a bunch of pix, but mostly to show those who don’t know how to detach that front piece of the truck mode from the main figure. Let’s start with that:

    first, start with robot mode on the inner robot:

    Next, untab the shoulder joints & open out a bit. Then spin the figure around at the waist:

    Next flip down the codpiece, then slide the upper body forward:

    now that we’ve isolated that front part of the truck mode on its sliding mechanism, just slide it all the way down, & wiggle it off the slide past the codpiece:

    If you’ll notice, there’s 3 screw holes inside. They’re all 5mm holes. Which comes in handy for most standard weapons nowadays. Altho the center screw hole is pretty recessed and not very accessible:

    Now that we have the cab chunk off, I decided to add a 5mm hole on the top-it’s hidden in truck mode, doesn’t ruin the tiny display stand hole on the other side, & can be used when still on the back as an extra weapon mount:

    Next I wanted a handle. I experimented with a couple things from my junk bins but when I saw this I knew it was my best choice. IIRC it’s a convention exclusive version of Energon Skyblast’s weapons:

    I popped the spear tips off and added a 5mm peg on top, to mount the cab chunk. Then I carved out the spear bits a bit so it can still be used as a spear:

    Lastly, I just plug the chunk onto the spear handle & TADAAA:

    Due to the spear handle design, Magnus can hold it by the tip, or the built in handle towards the head. He can hold it with both hands, the hammer head can spin around depending on my preference, and I can plug the spear tips onto those screw holes for added flair. Flip Magnus’s red backpack down, and you can stow it on the back too. And of course the inner robot can use it too.

    thanks for looking!
