    Hey guys, I felt the time was right to reveal a project I have been working on since August!

    Some of you might know, Menasor is my favorite combiner. So it was only natural that i wanted to make an ROTF one. I was very inspired by Digilaut's entry into the TF2 make a TF art contest, so i hit him up and asked if he'd mind if I ran with his idea. He had no problem, so here we go!

    Motormaster in this incarnation is going to be a flatbed truck. He will eventually sport a new head, but for now he is made from 1.5 Mixmasters and some Hot Wheels playset pieces.

    Enjoy the pics! He is a work in progress. He won't require much of a paintjob, as much of the original Mixmaster colors more match Motormaster anyway.

    Yes, there are plans to combine, yes, the others are in progress, and I will reveal them soon. This is not your father's Menasor :)

    NICE!! This is a welcomed change of pace for Motormaster! I love the four armed idea for a core combining robot , I mean Mix had SO MUCH robot stuffed into that truck that expanding the vehicle only makes sense.

    Do you plan on his arms being combiner limb?

    Is he going to have a Prime-esq trailer, or more car carrier being he's menasor?

    Will his cannon be removable so Menasor gets a BFG?

    I loled at that :) 

    This project is already looks kickass from that 1st picture, and I can't wait for the big reveal of the rest of the components and combined mode.

    I can assume Menasor is going to look very different, just as Devastator looks different from his toon?

    All the best. I'll keep an eye on this one. :)

    primus feather - His arms (two of em) will factor into the combiner process, but not how you think. as for his backend, i gotta clean up what you see, but he's pretty much a tall flatbed. I do have a spare cannon, but the cannon on Motormaster is not going to be removable, as it plays a role in the combiner process as well.

    stormvapor, bacem - thank you, i really wanted to do something different.

    highcon - Thanks for the support!! there's way more going on than i have revealed, this is definitely going to work.

    shane - thanks, a basher's job is never done! I did find a cool solution to the distribution of weight in combiner mode...to be revealed soon.

    fakebusker - YOu got it - Menasor will not resemble his G1 shape - he will be more in line with a very exclusive club of TFs...

    Eric - dude, i hadn't thought of that - good call! (goro)

    bakublade - i feel where you're coming from, but to me it's the other way around - Mixmaster looked too much like Motormaster to begin with. the new head will help differentiate the two.

    spikebuster - Thanks!!! wait till you see the rest! Though i will say Motormaster is one of the more experimental ones.

    JSP - Yeah when i saw Digilaut's stuff i was quite impressed, and knew right away i wanted to make his work a reality. A couple pieces of artistic license here and there.

    And another clue - could there be Cybertron's first baseball team in the works?

    Earl - you know it. I can't stay away!!
