    Well as the title states, a MP Ultra Magnus gun...half scratch built and the other half is MP Optimus Prime gun. I just wanted to show it off and get some feedback before its gets sanded and primed.


    UPDATE: 6/5/12 DONE ! ! ! Bout time!

    Pretty cool, but I'm sure you can get a MP Magnus rifle just like like that on e-bay for about $8. I got 2 of them there about a month ago. Even comes hollow for the LED customizing! Nice job on the build though, Cheers!

    ^8 dollars really? I have been looking on e-bay and the only ones I've been seeing are the ones that come with a non transforming roller and a gas pump thing,and they go for more than 8 bucks though. Thanks for the complment!

    "quote from Astronopolis "i like it! however, if i were to change anything it would be the smaller handle. id either omit it or make it shorter

    Great to hear your thoughts, I almost left it off, but I didnt because I thought it would be cool for my alternators to be able to hold the gun too.
    I do think it might be a tad too long though.

    My only suggestion would be to go back to the barrel and add the small dimples like the g1 for a little more detail, But your scratch built parts look great and as Is it's defiantly magnus's gun

    I look forward to seeing it painted.

    ^^I get what your saying,I gonna leave them out(even though I would like them on there) because I think it would be to easy to mess up. If I would have made that part of the barrel myself I would probably give it a go since then it would be easier for me to fix/replace. Thanks for the input!

    ^can ,and will do!

    Update: Well I finally got around to painting these up. Not perfect by a long shot BUT good enough for me to live with. C&C always welcome.
