    UPDATED PICTURES IN POST 11



    As soon as I saw Magnus I knew exactly what I wanted to do with him

    I made a casting of an original Thunderclash chest plate and trimmed down. I’ll likely mount it to the original Magnus bumper so it looks more natural in truck mode. Pics below are from various points of progress and testing. most recent at the top. I’ll likely just do a second casting

    Paintwork is temporary, not intended to be final, I intend to strip back and do properly not that conditions mean it is warm enough in the UK to bust out my airbrush.

    Once happy with this I’ll start deciding on how I want the armoured up Hyperdrive form to look colour wise

    That looks awesome! I love Thunderclash and I wish there were more toys of him. Your custom looks great! How'd you go about getting that face sculpt?

    Guess I should post an update on this since I made real breakthroughs today.

    I’ve been trying to cast the chest shield for months but got fed up of it just not working so just used an original junker

    With some cutting of the slider for the bumper and drilling I can mount the chest as a removable piece using Lego, technically a partsformer and it’s unfortunately offcentre but it’s functional and looks good

    Went a little mad with the bumper, originally just added the yellow ochre to the grill (can’t be bothered with gold though my apply sometime) then I noted the turbines in there and will all turbomasters they need to be purple with yellow ammo and just carried on

    Looks busy in it’s own but great in truck mode

    Holy moly. If this was official (and not covered in silver paint splatter), I would buy it.

    Can't wait to see supermode!

    I do have a recreated version I could print off as a waterslide decal, am likely to do that once I finish painting the trailer up

    Dude, the paintwork on that is beautiful. It almost looks official.
