    This Ultra Magnus is very unique for me. The Bot mode is excellently done. The alt mode is, meh...

    Decided to go with chrome-y finishing this time (for the silver part) instead of just shinning silver. It's more reflective in real life. Chose a darker shade of red for this, as I didn't want the red to over power the chrome.

    Due to moving, I still couldn't get the best setup for photos. This will have to do for now.

    I just picked Magnus up yesterday and you've realized the paint scheme I had in my head. I'm so impressed with how this turned out! Fantastic job!

    I love everything about it except the yellow light marker on the legs, but I can see the G1 vibe in that.

    Best Magnus custom ever. I didn't notice until you painted the roof silver, but the truck cab definitely gives off a God Magnus kinda vibe.

    With different lighting... you'd be convinced this was a CG shot from the show itself!

    Either way... looks leagues better than the stock paint.. that's for damn sure.

    That's the best part! I might have even taken it a step further and made the middle light orange. :) 

    I also love that he now has a red torso with a blue vest. Much better scheme.

    And I'll be danged if the alt mode doesn't look respectable now. Maybe the person who designed the lines for the long truck didn't ride in on the short bus after all.

    Beautiful work. Some of the pics looks like actual CG renderings.

    I was never a fan of the alt mode, but somehow that metallic paint job makes it look so much better.
