    Oh yeah. I thought that a long time ago. The face may have to be changed, but he's well suited.

    Good call! Never thought of that, but it could work really well. It's the truck mode and the "box-head" that do it. Remove the liftarms and give him a new face (and a sword), and I think it would be a great fit.

    Since it looks like his backpack/cargo bay is essentially one piece, you might even be able to remove that and replace it with a box that would make him look less like a garbage truck and more like a cargo truck.

    I say do it! It could turn out fantastic!

    Dooo eet! Doo eet now!!!!!!! :D  I thought the same, but I'm opting for a partial scratchbuild myself. I want to make sure he'll be big enough in Menasor mode, and I have to have cab feet!:thumb

    I see Inferno in this mould more but what the heck, it's still a good idea. Motormaster just has to be Leader/Ultra though...

    Anyone can be made into Motormaster in the custom world.

    I was bored... so I did a quick and dirty digibash of how this could look. Hope you don't mind. :)  (I'm not actually going to do this repaint... too lazy. I just wanted to see what it might look like.) I stole the face from Activators Megatron, which of course would never work in real life because of the size. He needs a sword, and an alt mode photo... but again, with the lazy. :p

    I think it could work pretty well. His proportions and design are a little on the "friendly" side, but I think different coloring and a new face would go a long way toward making him look sinister.

    Excellent WhiteMocha! This shows that the Wreck-Gar to Motormaster conversion has potential!:thumbs2: 

    And just why the heck are your quick and dirties so much better than my long and tedious digis?
    :banghead:  <-- me doing a digibash, you watching me do a digibash -->:p

    you can force it to work, but other than a square helmet, it has nothing in common with Motormaster at all. The digibash proves my point, though I'd drop the purple on the chest as he didn't have any there. That's if you're going for accuracy, of course. He should have black thighs and silver/grey shins too.

    Well i dont think that digibash looks any less like Motormaster than TFA Ratchet looks like g1 Ratchet. Same could be said for Scrapper, Mixmaster, Megatron, Bumblebee, Blitzwing, etc, etc.

    Point being, a TFA version doesnt have to be exact to still do the old one justice.

    I suppose, but character-wise, I can't imagine MM being too thrilled about turning into a Garbage truck hehehe.
