    UPDATE 10-7-08: not much happening, still waiting on the trailer but I did see new images from Fansproject about a possible varient they might be doing. It's for the SDCC Nemesis Prime but I thought it might be better to use it (if they do it) as it looks like a lot less painting. So I changed up the teal colors for purple to match my MM. I really hope they do this varient.

    UPDATE 4-30-08: I just finished the digital version of what Motormaster will look like in full robot mode. I decided to go with the gray trailer instead of the black one, this gives him a G1 feel. Hope y'all like.

    UPDATE 4-29-08: I got my garage reset up for painting and I will start up again soon now that its warmer and I have my plans in place. And yes one of them will be repainting Motormaster to a GOOD purple color not the pinkish/purple it came out. Also in addition to the trailer below I will be getting the City Commander trailer and painting it for my Motormaster. (I know I am one SICK person and my wife agrees I need psyc help :drunk  ). But as soon as I saw that I thought would wicked for Motormaster also. This will give him his combat trailer or a everyday mission trailer.

    OLD: Thought I would give y'all a glimpse of how my Motormaster project is coming. I just got my drimmel so I will be adding the head soon but until then here he is in vehicle mode and trailer (trailer is in early stages but you can see the direction I am going).

    Um hate to tell you but MM is not pink

    *looks in the mirror* nope definately not pink ;) 

    I do like the addition of the grill though. With some more vertical bars it will give it a nice bit look.

    Cool. I like the updated feel it has. Especially using more purple (looks pink because of the flash?) than most people would. The only thing I think doesn't look quite right, is the size of the trailer. It looks a little small compared to the Prime mold. Other than that, it looks great so far. Keep up the good work :thumb .

    LOL!

    I love the girlie pictures of decepti-chicks hanging on the wall of his trailer!! Now that's how I see a brutish gearhead like Motormaster decorating his digs! :) 

    Nice touch.

    I also see that a GIJOE Polar Battle Bear gave it's life (or at least it's armaments) for the cause! ;)

    Unfortunately these were quick photos and the flash made him look pink. He actually is a metallic purple. :lol

    The "pin ups" are cute, and I like the bull-bars.

    I like it a lot. It doens't have to be conventional Motormaster looking.

    Now I'm just waiting for a Movie Voyager Optimus Prime -> Motormaster repaint :D

    I like the Elita-1 (Aelita One, Aelita-1, One-Liter, pick one!) mudflaps. However, if you applied the upper-portion of the flap to the inside of the wheelwell, it would look a lot better. Im sure if you popped the rubber of the wheel you'd have no problem getting it lined up evenly. If you cant do it by hand, try using tweezers and a toothpick to adjust it.

    I was wondering how long before someone noticed. Those are actually temporary. I'm actually building perment flaps to apply the decal to. If you saw the other side you would see white paper. Thanks.

    Hmmm a metallic purple you say... sounds interesting. Any chance you could take some pics without the flash so we can get a better feel for the color?

    You bet, once I get the head mounted I will do the whole gambit on him. The trailer will be awhile as it is in the early stages of construction.

    I don't see how one could say there was any form of competition, its a completely different take on the Character. This looks nice and original.
