My first attempt at a transformable Lego model, based on the character Ultra Magnus.
About this creation
Here's Ultra Magnus in his vehicle mode: a white fire engine. Not the cleverest disguise ever, but I didn't make this character up.
A hind view of his vehicle mode. Now, let's go ahead and transform him.
Step 1: Straighten out the ladders (I call them ladders, but I really don't know what those are supposed to be...) like shown.
Step 2: Stand the model up so that the truck cab becomes the feet.
Step 3: Pull the back of it up so that it's straight with the rest of the model.
And, there's Ultra Mags in his robot mode. Pretty crappy, I know, it's my first attempt at a transformable model, as noted in the introduction. Not much articulation, all you can do is rotate the arms.

And, as always, a close-up on Mags's crappy, unarticulated, completely 2D head. I know I did a terrible job here, but we all start somewhere.
