    Based on people's suggestions, I made some changes to the Menasor head. I added more squared off horns to better mimic the G1 head, as well as removed the teeth, mouth, and chin. I added more of a grilled look to his mouth backed with some transparent red plasting to help pipe the light through the mouth area.

    I wanted to get the feel of a movie Megatron with some aspect of the classic Menasor. It has the angular aspects of the movie verse, and the eyes, side vents and "horns" of the classic character. I think this might work well for a Bludgeon as well... :p 

    Let me know your thoughts....

    I think that would work great both as a Bludgeon and Menasor as well! For the Menasor, I'd add the characteristic little wings that come out the sides of his head, or make the ones on there stick out a little more.

    Excellent work man, I envy your abilities. The only thing is the teeth...will you be hollowing out the space behind them so maybe the mouth lights up behind the teeth??

    Looks great, Z. The nose area needs some additional depth IMO.

    I am not sure.... the problem would be the structural support for the teeth...

    I would love one of these just, to carry around and creep people out.

    I personally would have liked to see a bit larger horns, but this head looks awesome!!

    Looks much better with the mouth grill and I see you added an additional piece to the nose. Nice!!! I think he's ready, Freddy! :thumb

    the styrene work I know was a pain..looks good...

    The only thing that stands out to me is the mouth...it seems like it is "open" too much.

    Really curious to see this beast....
