    Shout-outs to F_R, Redline, and Moe for the inspiration.

    Here's Menasor. Hope you guys enjoy him. A BIG thanks to F_R for the original design of this badboy.

    thanks for the comments everyone

    i've added 2 double-barrel cannons on each side of his chest, to bulk him up. They are also used in Wildrider and Breakdowns alt. modes. And I added a rear-view shot, as Moe requested.

    I've also added the finishing touches, including decals and missed paint apps. Hope you guys like.

    Cheers

    I love the head sculpt and the wheels on the forearms are a nice touch as well. Great work.

    Menasor is great. He's a little be lanky, but that my assumption. But all and all he looks sweet.

    I really like this bad boy, its amazing! great sculpts and paint job!

    However, my only gripe (sp?) are the shoulders and arms connectors, i think they look too long and they could be better integrated into the cars. Have you looked into Optimal Optimus arms? that shoulder joint could work here :)

    Looks great! I like this version, a bit lanky but very agile looking! How's the poseability and balance? My critique would be how the limb bots just kind of attach to a frame. But that's been a minor gripe I've had with most of the Ptitvite-combiner offsprings! Aside from that I must give you two big thumbs up for a great custom!:thumbs2: :thumbs2:

    Excellent job on this, bro! I think anyone who attempts a combiner deserves some respect and admiration. They aren't as easy as everyone might think and while he may be a bit lanky, that just seems to make him that more imposing and agile (as big hank said). The paint job looks great and the individual bots are awesome--especially the head sculpts (I wanted to comment on them in the other thread, but instead of repeating myself, I'll just post it all here). You've done some great combiners and we've all learned a bit from each other and our various takes on them.

    Keep up the great work!

    I actually like the lankiness. Menasor is supposed to be one of the fastest combiners, not a hulking machine like Devastator or Bruticus.

    very cool!

    for some reason i just really like the feet a lot. lol. i dont really know why

    the whole thing looks great, though he almost looks like he's kinda missing something. not really sure what it is though.

    keep it up!

    You did an awesome job with this. I am happy to see the many efforts you applied to make this Menasor look different than the one which I did. I really like the wheels on the forearms, however logically they don't seem to make sense. I love the wheels on the thighs, those are perfect.
