The lights are on
A savvy custom toy maker is selling figures that reveal what one of the most popular Transformers might have looked like had he appeared in War for Cybertron. Custom toy creation has become big business in the age of adult collectors and eBay. One of the coolest video-game related projects in recent weeks is this custom Ultra Magnus set, modded from what appears to be the existing Optimus Prime War for Cybertron figure. The two versions of Ultra Magnus, which are being sold together as one lot by custom toy creator blacklion29, reveal the two classic looks for the character -- one is a stark white repaint of Optimus Prime, while the other expands the existing figure with added shoulder cannons and a new head. You can check out the eBay auction right here while it is still active over the next four days. In the meantime, check out some additional photos below.

Haven't played the game and I'm a tad bit young to be a Transformers fan but the figures look awesome.
White Optimus Prime? Very nice. The vehicles look just like the one in the game.
They look awesome as robots but really lame as vehicles. They look almost IDENTICAL as vehicles, some red should be visible on the one
Nice. I still haven't gotten around to playing this game.
Now those are some cool toys.
Would definitely be interested in picking up each of these. Nice work.
Holy crap. Now that's cool
