    For how long ive been working on this project? 4 or 5 years?

    As you might remember i based my work on TFMaster RiD Menasor, and since then have gone through many revisions. I have never been fully satisfied with each result i was getting and with the different takes on Menasor, new ideas kept coming

    1.- Motormaster got a new pair of legs, from Cybertron Prime. He still transforms the same way. Ill show pics later on the week once i get more epoxy to add the panels from UM. Also i need to get both leg cannons (for now im using my GF Convoy for display)

    The best part of this configuration is that i can use these legs for support for Menasor!

    Hands will be changed for Primus, as well the head

    The upper legs will be beefed up with more details as well Wheels ;)

    2.- Dragstrip kept his rubber wheels and i added more yellow detailing, later ill paint red accents like the recent release

    3.- Wildrider will be a simple repaint of Hot Rod... when i get a new one since thats the one of my collection. Still need to work on the leg conector

    4.- Dead End will be a repaint from Prowl, no major changes there other than the head

    5.- Breakdown, some might remember the Ford GT Roadbot i posted months ago, like i said i wasnt fully satisfied with him, so i decided to make a new one and instead of using the Universe Twins, i made a reshell with the Roadbot Lambo :D  Bot mode pics will come later once i fill different panel lines :)

    Awesomeness!! He's got some serious arm span there!

    I like the Primus Forearms, but might I suggest Unicron's hands? It seems Primus' hands are a tad smallinsh given the height of your Menasor! Unicron's hands may help scale him out better, and make the arms not seem so long/slender.

    But either way, you got a good thing goin' here! Keep up the good work!:thumbs2:

    Two new pics up :) 


    I though about that, but the main problem using Unicron hands is the size of Motormaster forearms for combined mode, they look really outa place :)

    i love your motor master, it takes the best elements of RID UM and adds some great poseability options. i certainly can't wait for more pics of him.

    Head is not attached, as well the leg cars, but the leg configuration is almost done

    And he can stand on his own! although for security reasons he is leaning to the boxes on the back i had to fill both legs with epoxy to add weight

    I'm really liking the reshell for Breakdown, great work getting all the paneling to line up so well. It also adds some bulk to the robot mode, which is an added bonus. I can't wait to see your finished product!
