    This build is dedicated to Bill Koshorek (TFmaster) The d00d who taught me to go the extra mile.
    Back when I started in this hobby, I had this brain fart to build the first ever 1/24 scale fully transformable Stunticon group that could merge into Menasor. I was fairly new to kitbashing but had done autobody repair for years at this time. Didn't take long to find out Bill was building one also........in fact, he had built a couple. Anywho, I had already begun work on the project so I pressed on. The original set I built had a moddified Masterpiece Prime at the core and four repainted alts. (RX-8, Corvette, Viper, and S2000) I managed to get the set designed to have zero parts to pocket aside from the forearms. After seeing Bills, I knew I had to try and push myself further as he always did and so this idea began to bubble in my head: Fully transformable exact model replicas of the Stunticons. (Hell, I had already begun the Combaticons at the time, why not add something else I'll likely never finish) I once again didn't want any parts left over so I began designing a trailer that would house ALL the combiner parts in a usuable way. Anywho, after over two years of dedication, here it is.............................

    That thing is massive, and the fact that the trailer houses all of the other parts is just icing on the cake. Great work!

    Sir, I own the Menasor that Bill made you are speaking of. It is packed away nice and safe. I must say, your creation far surpasses the one I own.

    Good grief, what an amazing month in the world of TF customs! Jin's Soundwave, Unicron-9's realistic Predacons, Chansformers WFC PMOP Prime, Kelvin's MP Blurr, Zildjian's Dominator Megatron... and now THIS! What are you guys going to do for the other 11 months in the year? LOL! Anywho, this is unbelievable work, Wikkid! Each component of this build is truly a masterpiece in every sense of the word. I am absolutely in awe of your talent.

    This is a tremendous accomplishment.
    The amount of time and love speaks volumes by the scale of such a piece.
    The thought and execution of this project is one that should be praised by all.
    Well done Wikkid:rock

    Truly a menacing Menasor to say the least. Great to see the amount of work that you must have put into it. The trailer is very impressive. I like how it holds the extra parts.

    I've seen the individual pics of these and they look amazing. But Menasor (from these pics) looks a bit off. Not a big fan of the face (looks too animated?) Can you post a pic so it shows him straight on? Because it looks like the forearms look too obtrusive. Not enough pics! I wanna like this because the individual guy's look so freaking awesome..but it's a shame since they are hard to see when merged.

    Definitely there's much love that has gone into this. And I love reading the whole story of how this project started and how TFmaster was involved.

    The trailer idea was sheer genius!

    Wow, wow, wow. The fact that all of the extra bot parts fit in the trainer is stunning, and should shut up all those that complain about "kibble". This is breathtaking. Couple of questions.... how much does he weigh and is he stable enough for dynamic poses?

    Unreal man.... u-n-r-e-a-l.
