    FINISHED ROTF Movie Stunticons/Menasor 7/19/09 UPDATED PICS!

    Made a new thread since I could not update the 1st posts title....

    FINALLY FINISHED! 7/19/09..... NEW pictures below!

    Has working head and chest/torso lights, all figures have individual transformations as well as combiner aspect.

    UPDATED PICTURES BELOW 6/25/09

    Connected the figures (Bumblebee & Sideswipe) to the arms. They are securely mounted and the entire figure can be held by each figure without it falling apart. Next is adding all the "extras" to build him up. The last picture has a Primus head resting on it for show and scale purposes.

    UPDATED PICTURES BELOW 6/24/09

    I was actually able to make the torso work, combine and still have full range. This guy stands on his own and balances VERY well.


    Started building this guy up.... I have been racking my brain on how to make a movie "style" Combiner with a flair from the classic G1 combiners.

    I am using the following combination:

    Voyager Optimus Prime: Motormaster
    Deluxe Sideways: Dead End
    Deluxe Jazz: Breakdown
    Deluxe Cannon Bumblebee: Drag Strip
    Deluxe Sideswipe: Wildrider
    Cyberton Primus: All the kibble and fodder for torso, legs, arms etc.

    Here is what I have come up with so far.... all figures will still individualy transform, as well as combine.

    Thanks for looking.

    awesome job man. i like everything. it would have been cool to see the leader prime mold used, to keep all of the vehicles in scale, but that's ONE SWEET CUSTOM!

    The paintjobs is simply awesome but I'm not really digging the proportions.

    I wished you could've made the legs a little longer and given him elbows, maybe sit the dragstrip and deadend a little higher on his shoulders. I'm also not very fond of having the long truck nose as Menasor's chest. But hey, everyone is entitled to their own artistic interpretation. :)

    Nice job and great pics. Great throwback feel to it. I like the new heads, especially on breakdown, feels different enough to distance itself from Jazz. The only things I might change about it are the length of the arms and a couple different paint app choices. The arms feel a little short. Dead End was my one of my first TF's as a child and I always like seeing him with his stripes. Regardless, excellent work.

    Terrific job. I think he looks very menacing. Nice paint and details too. The stunticons really look like a bunch of bad ass bots.

    Overall it's good. I have a couple of critiques. First, the paint looks uneven and thick in certain areas. It's especially noticable on Dragstrip. Did you brush paint the figures? Second, to me the arm limbs, again especially Dragstrip, looks too much like it's just a car stuck to the side of Menasor's arm. If you can somehow transform the arm bots to have elbow joints it'll look more like a whole part of the arms.
