    I’ve tried to keep the Stunticon bios true to the original G1 characters. However, this one bio is significantly different. These changes, making Motormaster a far more capable leader, are needed to suit my overall ideas for how the Stunticons might fit into the Animated universe.

    Motormaster is an ambitious Transformer with a dark side. He has long been a Decepticon, recruited by Shockwave as a sleeper agent on Cybertron. Unlike Shockwave, Motormaster has never let his true loyalties become known, so he needs no elaborate disguise.

    Motormaster is a master manipulator and planner. He has infiltrated and moved up the administrative structure of the Autobots on Cybertron. Indeed, the title ‘master’ which has been appended to his name is a parallel to the title ‘prime’ used in field branches of the Autobot hierarchy. Motormaster’s has found his niche as the foremost specialist on criminal insanity on Cybertron. He advises the Autobot Council and the Elite Guard on such matters, and is the Master of the Iacon Mental Health Hospital.

    Now that Megatron has been captured, it is time for Motormaster to move into action. Of course, Megatron will not be incarcerated in the Iacon Mental Health Hospital, even if it is a maximum security facility. One so dangerous as Megatron will be given special treatment. But Motormaster will have access to the security arrangements. His carefully nurtured team will finally be brought together. It’s time for a jailbreak.

    I think he needs the cowl over his head, and a dash of purple. Especially the windows - and a purple face might not hurt either. Right now he looks more like a Nemesis Prime in my opinion. Awesome job laying down the paint, though. Really clean, and neat back story. I like the 'Master' rank idea - clever.

    I think it's a cool repaint.

    However, I don't see Motormaster. I see a black repaint of Optimus Prime. I see "Nemesis Prime/Scourge" if anything. Like AutoCon said, some purple, maybe even just a little bit of head-swapage with another character (Wreck-Gar's head with modifications) would add SO MUCH to this piece.

    I like the repaint - just don't see the Motormaster. Good work either way though.

    Thanks for the responses. I tend to view (vehicle-type) Scourge and Nemesis Prime as being later incarnations of Motormaster--they are all Decepticon attempts to counter Optimus Prime directly. Adding purple, though, is a great idea. So is swapping the head, for that matter.

    Cheers,
    Dischord
