    You have to be quite careful with Down Force when rotating his wind shield (many people have cracked theirs). The rest are not difficult to transform just annoying and crude. I actually found the transformation from truck to robot mode for Not Motormaster quite straightforward. It's still fiddly but not so bad in the end. The BIG problem is going to Intimidator where there's a part where you have to rotate the torso connector, which can be quite scary.

    I grew to hate this combiner too with the fact that Motormaster in robot mode was crap. Agreed with other guy who dislikes this combiner, for most of the same reasons. Not fun at all. I sold it now, but when I had it, I hated how wildrider's chest hit the ground in vehicle mode, and how both wildrider and breakdown's front wheels would just buckle under rub against the fenders. Combined mode does look great, and that was probably the best time I had posing him, but even then it just felt pointless when I knew if the individual parts had so many flaws.

    But yeah, so very not fun. I'll be happy with my PE upgraded CW Menasor I'm sure.

    bullshit. Diesel is awesome in robot mode. Very posable, great take on Motormaster.

    CW Menasor is so misproportioned

    Diesel is ass in robot mode. His shoulders are too tight so they keep rotating along the combiner transformation joint and constantly push the chest piece off their tabs, the amount of combiner kibble that gets tacked onto his body renders him nearly impossible to stand without falling over, let alone pose in a great dynamic pose, putting the larger gun in his hand means it's now too heavy to lift without the gun resting against the floor, the bottom calves just come apart when you try to bend the leg at the knee, the sword has to go somewhere, and doesn't really fit properly on his back without wanting to fall off of him at the slightest shake, his face is boring as hell with literally no character whatsoever, especially given that this character is supposed to look angry and mean but instead looks like a young teenager type face, and he also takes forever to transform even if you know what your doing, and coming back to the combiner kibble, constantly rotating the shoulder mounted launchers means either the combiner hand falls out or you just untab something else that is already on him... yeah, hes a big fat pain in the ass. Sure, if you can get him into a pose, he looks pretty cool, but that's 1 hour of your time for something that really isn't that worth it.


    All CW Motormaster apparently has against him is being disproportioned. I don't find him the least bit monkey armed AT ALL. Sure his arms are long, but it's not like his legs are at all tiny, so it doesn't look anything like Cybertron Crumplezone. Once you have him in hand and actually give him a decent pose, he only looks like a big hulking brute. He has a million times more character than Diesel, and is just as poseable with the exception of ankle tilts or wrist rotation.

    I don't like Diesel's robot mode much either. For that complicated of a transformation I wish it at least had cab feet and less crotch bulge. I'm keeping my FP Menasor because it's still a great display piece in combined mode but after CW Menasor gets some third party upgrades I think I'll prefer it.
