    Motormaster is finally complete. Managed to get most of the things I wanted squeezed into it. All of Menasors combiner components transform to become the trailer with no parts leftover. (Not including weopons) Motormaster sports a riffle type weopon with fold-away stock, the sword can be wielded by Motormaster and Menasor, The scout car (Named Motorola by Kingbotz) has hidden canons beneath the doors. Other things to note are functioning doors on the cab and trailer.

    very nice, looks like he's squinting a bit though. There is no denying that you're definitely one of the heavyweights when it comes to stuff like this.

    I love him even more this time around. I really like that you went back to make him better then when you first finished him. I think most people would have left him alone and would have been happy the way he was.

    Dude. Excellent stuff, and great work on the Stunticons, overall.

    So, this Motormaster - the feet look great, the design works really well; not clumpy like a literal G1 throwback would have been, but you still got the basic design cues in there. Partsforming, yes? How much has to come apart, and how delicate or poseable are they once attached?

    My word, that's rather awesome. I'm not entirely sold on the face, but the engineering is incredible, the paintwork is brilliant, and it just screams Motormaster. Which is what you want, really. :p

    I just realized I forgot to put his eye lenses in. Opps. Good to see you're still interneting Rotorstorm, been a long time since I've seen j00 around.

    No parts-forming at all on Motormaster. Usually I do a transformation sequence for customs but he still works the same as V1.0 only cleaner and smoother. The only delicate part on the figure is the truck fenders which are attached to the sidestep/gas tanks and they end up on the back of the leg. Given they are only styrene, laying him down for any reason could break/twist them. The sleeper shells may seem delicate when in transformation but they are a good quality plastic as they come from the M.A.S.K. RHINO truck, but once they fit into place they get good and solid again. The Sleeper window sections clip onto the feet of the figure but remain attached by the exhaust stack. I'll be relocating the mounting point though as the stacks stick out too far in robot mode when they originally were flush with the leg.

    Probably my least favourite part too. I'm not very good at scratchbuilding faces so I had to opt for one I had in stock. (May change later should a good one pop up) Come to think of it, you pointed that out back in the Transtopia days too. [​IMG]


    Thanks for the props and honest feedback d00ds. Always an invaluable source for self improvement.
