I don't have a firstborn. Your bid is invalid.

@  TheMightyMol... : (01 May 2016 - 01:19 PM)

I wasn't going to go in naked, but it rotted off all my clothes. And then I was already in anyway, so......

@  Paladin : (01 May 2016 - 12:32 PM)

for the last time, stop swimming naked in the fermentarium.

@  Verno : (01 May 2016 - 01:05 AM)

Given how TM Megs suffers from GPS, I'm sure many people would jump at a reissue.

@  Pennpenn : (01 May 2016 - 12:32 AM)

Out of all the hypothetical Beast Wars things, the one I'd like is a leader class Transmetal Megatron

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 11:18 PM)

They'd make a superb duo. If TT drew the line under BW MPs after those two, I'd be perfectly content.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 11:15 PM)

I personally hope we get an MP BW Megs, especially if he has a rubber ducky he can hold, yeeess.

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 11:13 PM)

Bring on October and MP Primal so the anniversary celebrations can begin.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 11:06 PM)

oh hey lok its tecs birthday

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 11:03 PM)

It certainly has, man. If it wasn't for BW I probably wouldn't be here.

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 10:15 PM)

Yeah, I threw a link in the Beast Wars Birthday thread. I'm keen to hear as many thoughts on it as possible. The last month has proven just how dear to the hearts of fans BW is.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 10:04 PM)

I looked at it a few days ago, actually, I saw you post it somewhere here on the forums.

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 09:43 PM)

No, they're certainly after their own ends. Cheers for taking a look at it, Smokey. I appreciate it.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 09:36 PM)

Well, at least you twisted things around so the Tripredacus council aren't minions of Unicron.

I made this custom for the "In Honor of Vector" contest over TFW2005. It's made from a RID Optimus Prime. Ladder was replaced by Cyb Defense Red Alert's rocket to make the vehicle mode a rocket transporter/carrier. Color scheme for Magnus is based on Vector's Alt Magnus custom. Ultra Magnus is of course based on G1 colors. I also modded the chest to make it look more Ultra Magnus and replaced the head with a Hydrospanned (and modded) Energon Superion head. Oh, you may notice some of the pics of UM lacks the yellow highlights. I added the yellow after I took the initial pics.

Edit: Saw a base mode for the RID OP on TFU so I played around with it and came up with base/rocket launch pad mode. Pics below.

Very cool. It works great, from the additional parts you incorporated, to the paint detailing (love the little bits of yellow), to how different the small and large robots look from each other. No reason that Ultra Magnus has to be a car carrier forever and ever Amen, just because the toy that was reused to become his G1 form happened to be one.

Impressive as always. The yellow highlights on that last pic of Ultra Magnus make the figure stand out so much more. I would love to see more pictures or even a full gallery of this marvelous piece of art. Great work as always VPrime.

Of course, the ironic thing to do would be to now combine that figure with RiD's Ultra Magnus...

Onslaugt? Now that would be interesting to see. My orginal idea was to make the Hotspot/Defensor exclusive that we've seen pics of. I actually never owned this figure until a month ago when I bought it thinking I would turn it into the would be TF Club Hotspot/Defensor exclusive that we've seen (I'll probably still do that). I wanted to do a Magnus custom when the contest was announced but didn't know what figure to use. When I received RID Prime in the mail I played around with it and it just hit me that this would make a great G1/Classics/Universe armored Ultra Magnus...

I don't have my own website but I will be submitting more pics to have it on TFW2005's customs gallery a bit later.


Thanks for the comments everyone.
