    Okay Guys this is very early in. Menasor is such a great character I have seen so many great customs I thought I'd try my own its going to be very movieverse and evil looking as pos. The jolt mould wont make it on to the final cut but its connected for perspective. Enjoy !

    The Soundwave and Insecticon bits are pure genius! Can't wait to see how this turns out!

    One thing though: are the cars going to be stuck on the limbs like that (ala G1)? That's definitely something that you might want to work on - if you aren't already - especially since in the movie bots every panel twists and turns.

    Off to a great start!

    Wow, LOVE that head and hand! Definately very menacing and sinister, though I have to agree with Digilaut on the car just being stuck on top of there. But that should be easy to change, no matter what molds you end up using; just mistransform the parts a little, maybe even pull out a leg or arm to cover something up and add to the look. Regardless of what you do though, I'm sure that it'll end up looking excellent. :thumb

    Pretty damn cool. Looks like you are going for more of an animal/bug like robot form. Very interesting take. That is what is cool about the movie verse, you have room for interpretation.

    Is that the head? It looks like an owl and Unicron had a baby. Needs more menace and less googly-eyes.

    Also not a fan of the car-stuck-on-arm. Not only does it look strange but it doesn't have a movie-vibe at all. If you can't get rid of the need for the exoskeleton you should find a way to wrap the car around it and fix both problems at once.

    The hand is cool, I do like that.

    have to agree about the googly eyes! devastator's face and eyes were pretty tiny compared to his head, which helped emphasise the scale and helped give hte trademark insecty look.

    [​IMG]

    how about just remove / paint over those blue googly ones, and leave the small lights below as being the eyes? eg:

    Awesome start!

    His eyes/face looks a tad friendly, but I'd kinda hate to see it changed too much.

    I got so far to go with this thing. I'm trying to use some different moulds for this one. The cars wont be just stuck on as illustrated they will be attached mistransformed to look like part of the arm etc. I think i'm gonna stick with some exo skeleton and see how it goes. I want as much articulation as possible on all parts. The head will stay much the same with more sculpting around the eyes to make them less googly. I have it in my head how i want it to look just gotta get it across on plastic. I am looking to use 6 stunticons all together. I do want some uniformity with the limbs thats for sure. Expect slow progress but hope to complete by the new tf movie.

    Really like what you have done with the head shot thats clever stuff. I was thinking maybe blade style eye lids to make it more sinister and fitting with the movie asthetic. Menasor would be far smaller in comparison to devastator. Its all good though man opinions welcome get the old creative juices flowing : )

    Beautiful head!
    I believe that if you mistransform (a lot) the car, it will be perfect!
