    This is a WIP for what could easily be a NEARLY perfect figure. FIXXED the most obvious issue he was lacking as more surprises are coming. Stay tuned.

    Ooo, perfect timing for noob me, as I picked up a Siege Magnus a couple weeks back for some tweaking myself.

    Are those KFC hands for Masterpiece Magnus? Or something else?

    They are
    Fan Style PH-02 Articulated Hands for MP-17 Prowl Masterpiece Transformers

    A word of caution about using them, they don’t fit exactly. What I did was take a piece a very thin plastic and put them behind the mushroom peg on the new hands to add a little bit more resistance. They turn without a problem and stay in place very well now. I’ll be posting more pictures soon I’m working on modifying some thing for Magnus’s window. Lamentably the plastic cracked while I was cleaning off the battle damage, so I’m going to have to do something different. I may just remove it so you can see the truck underneath. What does everyone think of that idea?I’ll be posting more pictures soon I’m working on modifying some thing for Magnus‘s window.

    I need a hammer he can actually hold. Part of the problem is there needs to be some kind of hammer handle with slots that he can hold it in those masterpiece hands. Anyone have ideas?

    If you have an existing 5mm-handled hammer, maybe something like this adapter would work?: [Shapeways] Handle Adapter (Sword) for KFC Hands

    Happened to catch this thread, I designed a 5mm compatible Magnus Hammer specifically for this mold a while back. Design wise its a fusion of the Animated one and the Forge of Solus Prime from Transformers Prime. It's available both on my Shapeways Shop to purchase and on Thingiverse for free download. It is designed for the stock hands however, not custom ones. Maybe it will still work for your purposes though?

    You know, with a piece of crazy straw, a small pin and Ultra Magnus has big old booty makes a pretty nice hammer

    I did this for a hammer, as a suggestion as I find that it works quite well and makes use of a Siege Battle master, keeping it in the same "family":

    Painted gunmetal and red eyes, handle extension is using a glowstick (but it was too flexible/soft, and the paint doesn't hold on this type of plastic, so it's now switched with a cut piece from a 5mm knitting needle). The adapter still doesn't hold the paint all that great so I had to try a few things to get it to stay on better.... still not perfect, but useable.

    Problem is the fingers are not strong enough to hold the hammer that’s why there’s a slot in the hand. The problem is we would have to have a hammer that has those slots. Unless Someone would like to do the honor of designing it
