    They should have called his sword the Mena-sword. :) 

    You didn't review the base mode for Motormaster? It's a pretty cool mode, especially when you have Trypticon to connect him to.

    Yeah, it's a pretty nicely put together set.

    Thanks for the review, Peaugh.
    Got mine today as well.
    Looks great, all is there, except I got Autobot rubsigns.

    I have him. The head posts for the combiner arms don't go into the hole socket all the way. Although they are secure, you see a teeny bit of the Stunticon faces. Also, Menasor leans forward a little bit, due to the head-post/swivel assembly on the leg components. It's nothing bad, but may require to fiddle with it a little bit. The chrome sword fits very tightly in the Menasor fists. One of mine has a little plastic stress. To avoid this, I just insert the sword just enough that it holds, rather than all the way in. Other than these minor quibbles, it's a top-notch KO.

    Most of these flaws are almost always present on the original figures as well.

    It's like this thread is hidden. Try searching the word "Menasor" in the Title in the whole forum under ADVANCED SEARCH.

    Doesn't come up.

    Strange going ons I've noticed lately here.

    These things are really hit and miss. I have a KO Baldigus that's spot on, and a 5 dollar Superion that literally crumbled out of the package. Sometimes even dirt cheap is still too much for what you get :D

    Yea', but usually you can tell if it's a crap KO just by the packaging. At least when it comes to G1's anyway.

    I always wait for the reviews, or what many others have to say on the high quality g1 KO's before buying. Therefore I will never purchase the Dinobots or Shockwave. Going original on those 6....... So $400. or so for nice minty loose/complete ones?

    3 KO's I can recommend though, are Sunstreaker, Wheeljack and Mirage.

    I've never owned a G1 Menasor (or any single Stunticons), but would this be a great set to get? I have the KO Mirage, Wheeljack and Shockwave (first is fantastic, second is ok-ish, third is kinda lame) so I'd like to know a bit more about this one.

    I quickly watched the video, not sure if you talk much about the quality of it.

    I heard that the color is off, the rubber hose is too short and his legs are loose. Those are the things I can think of at the moment.
    Researching a KO is key for me. It has to be far above par.

    I got the set as well, and to me, it's just fantastic. But then again, I get these just for diaply in box purpose--But, in the box--they really do look fantastic.
