    Hey guys!
    After I bought BH Prime I got him home and was playing around with him and I felt there was just something off about him. I couldn't put a finger on any one thing except maybe the open face plate. Then it struck me. He looked more like Ultra Magnus then Optimus.

    I removed the horns off the front bumper and his chest and gave him a repaint. Also took his blasters and shoulder armor and put magnets in each so they can connect. I broke him down into parts and gave him a coat of primer and then totally repainted him using spray paints and acrylics that were hand painted. I was trying to stay as close to G1 coloring as I could with this mold, and I am quite pleased at the results.

    I also custom built a hammer for him to carry into battle!

    Well on to the show! :ev:

    This should have been magnus in the first place. Great work man; I love it.

    Only thing I would recommend would be something that covers the arms and sides up in vehicle mode. Maybe 3 pieces of styrene and a couple hinges to make it become a shield. Other than that, he looks perfect!

    Nice! Not a fan of that head though, maybe switch it with the PRID Magnus head?

    The colouration and the paint job is superb, and honestly fits the figure very well!
