G1 Ultra Magnus
Designed to scale with MP Prime so that Prime can tow him along in vehicle mode.
About this creation
Ultra Magnus transform from a car carrier into a robot, designed to scale with MP Prime. In his vehicle form, he even hooks up to Prime's cab and let Prime tow him along.

In the original Toy, UM is a white truck that transform into a robot that merges with the car-carrier/trailer. And he has alot of separate parts to be connected to fully transform him. And to top that off, he's a brick.

My version here is a standalone car carrier, so I have designed it in way that he can still transform into a robot without the truck in front, and he doesn't have any separate parts lying about. And his limbs and body parts are fairly proportionate. Cool huh! =)

   This little peg is the connection point to MP prime.

   Yeah I know, the cars will have a HARD time getting onto this trailer.

   Transformation step 1, unhook the top ramp to become the arm.



Enlarge image
   I use a different method to transform the arm. Instead of sliding into position, I am doing a double-flipping to shorten the ramp to become a proper arm, and still mantain the articulation for the elbows.

   The side-plates flipped out

   Stand him upright

   Then the back ramp flipped up to become the feet

   To lock into place, I use LEGO doors and rotate them into position, so the side of the leg won't fumble.

   Remember the sideplates just now? It's now rotated to the back, and will be flipped down again...

   ... and dangle at the back of the legs.

   Push the front panel of trailer into position

This protuding plate will form the chest for UM

   Transformation complete.

   As you can see, this guy doesn't have much of a back.
