    **For those of you following the progress of this project, and you saw things that inspired you from wwoptimusprime and other Radicons, please go to this thread: wwoptimusprime's Classics Menasor WiP Feedback Thread (pre-jan-27-09). We hope you find wwoptimusprime's feedback thread useful as a resource and enjoyable as the other Radicons gave some helpful feedback! ~Radicons Staff**

    Im still in the process of creating my Menasor. These pics are of my main but im working on a new Motormaster. Im trying Cybertron Prime like F_R and MoeSizzlac but a different approch to it. Moving the cab to the back/feet and the chest becoming the trailor. Im not sure if it will work but its going in the right direction. Pics of prime show that his feet are well on there way but there are still some things Im trying to figure out. Pics will come as I figure things out. Any coments?

    I think things go here if they're post January 27th?

    So, to begin, I like the feet on Menasor. I absolutely love the direction you're going in with MotorMaster! I think it's going to be fantastic! Hope you can pull it off!

    Think you'll be able to find room for Menasor's Hands/Feet/Chestpiece in that trailer? It would be awesome if you could do it. Then again you've already done a great job in staying away from too much kibble, so I think it would be great even if the hands/feet/chestpiece were kibble.

    looking good. do the feet of MM need to come off though, then reattach?

    Also, where are the feet MEnasor has from?

    Menasors feet came from the black lion thunder zord from the second wave of power rangers.

    I like where this is going. My one suggesting would be to use a set of hands from Primus. They're smaller and would look better proportioned with the rest of Menasor.

    This looks really good! I was worried with a "same" sized leader bot, but it works well!:thumbs2:

    Pics? It's hard to get a sense of how far they hang without seeing them. Do they stick out as compared to the whole leg, or could you maybe fill in the upper leg in combined mode somehow and it would look alright?

    Well, if we look back at the g1 motormaster, I think those extra big "leg" parts, the cab of the truck, folded backwards when he was in combined mode. Folding them similarly you could strengthen the back/legs, while making them look less thick on the front anyways... You could even design the snap connectors that hold the feet and legs together in motormaster bot mode to serve double duty as gestalt connectors?

    Any updates on this? It was looking really promising!

    As for the legs, I would suggest..not sure about this though, some kind of hinge, between the bottom of his leg and that additional "foot piece" that you've added on. The hinge should be closed in bot mode, and it will open and flip the foot back in gestalt mode.

    That said, I've never used a hinge, although I remember seeing a tutorial about making your own hinges with styrene rods somewhere...

    Alternative, and perhaps more usefully, if you feel up to adding a connector into his legs, you could clip on the feet in robot mode, then remove the feet and clip them on the back in gestalt mode. This frees up the first connector (which I suggest should be on the bottom of the leg) to be used to connect to the leg-bots.
