    Hi.
    I've been working on Menasor and Defensor since January!! It's taken a long time, but Menasor is finally complete and here he is.
    There were times when I was close to throwing the bloody thing up against the wall!! But after a lot time and effort I got there.
    Menasor isn't perfect. I wanted a 'box' head for Motormaster, an extra set of wheels for Drag Strip, but apart from a few minor points I'm proud and happy with the overall outcome.
    All the Stunticons transform with ease, and connect very fast and smooth to combine to form Menasor.
    Mainly acrylic paints, some metallic and some enamel.
    I always wanted to make Menasor with classics Optimus Prime/Nemesis Prime.
    Menasor's head sits on a balljoint, so loads of movement.
    Drag Strip and Dead End act as limbs, lots of rotation there, and the hands rotate.
    Unicron's lower body makes the bottom half of Menasor, so again good articulation.
    iGear and Dr. Wu parts used, and some lego technic pieces.
    I want to say 'thank you' to a friend of mine on these boards.
    Stormbringer85 told me after my previous Menasor that it was a good effort, and a stepping stone to something better. He gave me motivation to make a better Menasor, and I think I have.
    Lastly, a thank you to frenzyrumble and thyvipera. I read their conversation about making a combiner. They said to experiment and don't give up. They gave me added confidence.

    Hey, thanks for pointing that out. The balljoint/pin can press down a touch more. Also, I pointed the head up a little, it can lower and totally cover the pin so you can't see it at all. I might have to take another photo. Thanks very much for your observation mate.

    I really appreciate that, thank you.

    Here's a few more pictures, showing the size of Menasor compared to Henkei Hound.
