    Here he is! The combined form of my Stunticon team: Menasor! Essentially a detailed frame built on top of Unicron and Primus parts. I used a cut up G1 Prime trailer to make it look like the majority of him was composed of Motormaster's trailer. i also added "dummy" parts from the arm and leg components to parts of the frame to make it appear that they "grew" out of the individual bots. The smaller bots actually just nest in compartments that I built into the frame, and use attachment points that existed on the bots already (Drag Strip and Dead End's fists "grab" posts inside the frame, for example.) Scratch built head, sword (a larger version of Motormaster's), and drone, all based on the original G1 designs, help to sell him as Menasor. This whole set is for a very patient, and collaborative client, who trusted me to run with my vision of the characters! I hope you enjoy him Matt!

    That's an awesome take on Menasor. I like that you went with the illusion of parts manifesting themselves from existing bots.

    just kidding! you pulled it off perfectly, the proportions are spot on, he's menacing and convincing in gestalt mode. Pretty impressed with the ankle/foot shindig you got going on here too.

    Very nice man! I really like how you incorperated the trailer pieces it really ties it all together. Also the dummy parts are a nice touch.

    That's...pretty bad-ass. Wow. That head is exactly what i want to see in menasor. it's like he's got a touch of the japanese styling to him with those horns. dear gawd it looks like he wants to hurt me. :lol 

    proof that unicron/primus parts and parts forming can work. you've changed my mind sir, and I tip my hat at thee (if...uhm....I wore a hat).

    Randy!

    Yeah, it was the only way I could come up with to emulate the G1 look, without having to completely destroy and rebuild the component bots. That would have taken this from a months-long project, to a years-long one!

    HAH! The feet are partially out of laziness. I was thinking of building all new feet, but figured the original Unicron ones were built to support his weight and poses, so they would work for Menny. I just cut them down to look less pointy!

    Thanks guys! The head was a sticking point for me, as I originally tried to emulate the G1 figure a little too much. Thankfully the client asked for a different take, which pushed me in this direction. I think it is a nice nod to his "Decepticon General" design from Transformers: Zone.

    Thanks all! I am glad he is well received!

    Gracious me...The head sculpt just jumps out at me. The expression you gave him is just so convincing, natural and awesome.

    I love how you split the trailer up to frame the body in that manner. Very moviesque yet keeping it close to the classic aesthetic.

    Great job at this. I envy the client owning this masterpiece.

    Now this I like. It's not just cars stuck onto a frame and called a combiner. They actually look like they're integrated into the arms and legs. Very, very impressive work.

    Sigh, The quality of the work is fantastic, but I'm getting tired of seeing this type of combiner.

    How about not clicking then? Why bother posting shit like this? "Standard medium-grade compliment followed by flippant baseless opinion intended to draw negativity towards the work."



    Anyway this is amazing, the level of work here is stunning, and there are new ideas shown here that work wonderfully. My only crits are that some of the details seem unfinished or unpolished, but after all that goes into something of this magnitude, you gotta draw the line somewhere and get it done.

    Just awesome, I love this.
