    MR Optimus Prime here,

    If some of you don't know, I have in my possession TFMaster's Alternator MENASOR !!!

    I purchased this five piece set from him because he knew my favorite combiner group was always the Stunticons.

    Here is my problem, it did not fare well when it was shipped, or the numerous moves it has had to go through.

    Is there anyone willing to be paid to do the work to repair a few little parts and what not?

    This set means THE world to me, but I have NO talent in this area what-so-ever. Being in Baghdad right now leaves me no other choice but to ask you all.

    Maybe you can pm Frenzy_Rumble. He just finished an awesome Menasor, so he may still be in a Menasor frame of mind! He is always interested in commissions as well, he may be up for a repair job! Good luck on it!

    So you're the owner of this great custom. After the unfortunate death of TFM, I asked his wife if I can buy this custom since she was selling alot of his stuff to make ends meet. She said it was sold already. Now I know to who. You are one lucky guy as I think this is truly a masterpiece. What exactly is wrong with it? Which parts are broken?

    Some small antenna pieces, a few things on Motormaster. Some paint apps could probably need finished.

    I would be honored to have THE Viagra Prime in on this, but any help is appreciated. Money is not on object.

    Big Hank, would you mind linking me to that other Menasor?

    First off, Classics Menasor =/= Alternators Menasor. That's no comment as to whether frenzy_rumble has the skills or not. However, just because the character is the same doesn't necessarily mean the customs would be similar.

    I'd say that VP would be the go-to guy here if he's up to it. Also, TheDevastator is a good choice since he knows TFm's work better than anyone, imo. I'd also think it important that one who can focus on restoration rather than customization necessarily would be more pertinent. I've done quite a bit of restoration to figures myself (it's one of the things that led to my own work), and I know restoring figures and customizing figures can be two different animals

    Regardless, we need this custom in our gallery, so I hope you can shoot many photos of it, before and after restoration. :wink:

    Ill see what I can do about pictures when I get back to the states in December, unless I am able to ship this to someone for repair before then.

    Off topic here, but while I was on the phone with him talking about Menasor, he said he mentioned me to his son...

    and told him that his heroes are real.

    NEVER forget that for the rest of my life.

    Wow! That's pretty much what got me into kitbashing. I was so amazed by how someone could turn five separate Alternators into a working combiner. I can't wait to see new pictures of it!
