    finally done. only regret is that i did not calculate his torso weight properly, thus the need to eliminate his hip/thigh articulation in order to support his weight.

    i made him as close as i could possibly get to his original G1 toy look.

    Motormaster sadly has no robot mode. the ko model was crap and in order to transform into menasor's torso, i had to leave out robot form. my engineering skills are not up there yet too. maybe in the future.

    I REALLY like this version of Menasor and each of the Stunticons. I absolutely LOVE some of your auto choices for them. AWESOME.

    Probably more like just over 2ft, if Menasor is 18 inches.

    This is an awesome piece of work. The paintjobs are beautiful; you've improved those figures no end. :)

    i used KO's to make him, so he IS a KO. thanks!

    Thanks man

    thanks. i like the autos too, but their bot modes suck. then again, i'm always leaving him in menasor mode.

    thank you!

    devy stands around 26'' or 27''. thanks man! appreciate your comments!

    Except they're not KOs. They're not Transformers, but then they're not pretending to be. They're no more knockoffs than Gobots were. :)

    Very nice job with this. I agree the bot modes on the individual bots suck, but combimed it looks fantastic.

    I'm curious, what is the light gray area of Menasor's torso made of? It looks chunky and heavy and is that the reason you had to remove his hip/thigh articulation?

    Pity MM doesn't have a bot mode though. I really liked the personality exuded by the rest of the bots.

    Think you could make the trailer become a giant cannon or gun for him to use? Also, where did you buy the KO's?

    I can't speak for Zonghui, but I have a couple of these figs, which I got in Poundstretcher, a discount shop in the UK. That must have been at least 7 or 8 years ago, though; I seem to recall they were about £3 at the time. Where you'd be able to get them nowadays, I have no idea.

    I see...Maybe that's why it so heavy! I was wondering if styrene sheets would be a lighter solution. Acrylic certainly is stronger, though.

    It would probably be lighter, but as Zonghui pointed out in his WiP thread, these 'bots have diecast hulls, so they're fairly heavy. Styrene would have to have a ton of reinforcement to support the weight.

    the light gray area is made from 10mm thick acrylic sheets.

    the transformation for the chest is a little like powermaster prime's.
