The vehicle mode is a little underwhelming, but this is one of my favorite Ultra Magnus toys ever made by Hasbro. Shame that he shipped looking like a blue lego block. Inspired by a few people's customs, I did a little detailing of my own. Not enough to noticably help the vehicle mode, however. Note that Elmer's paint pens were the primary coloring agent. They stick nicely to plastic, but even when thinned don't go on factory smooth. I choose to interpret that as battle wear. Now if one of you had a secret for how to get that to look smoother, I could run a junkion-style repair on him. Some other time.
