    Well, the is movie hot and heavy. I must admit, I really enjoy working on the movie figs. But pretty soon I will be getting back to our roots. I figure it is time I step up to the plate and add something that can be inspiring. Big thank you to all you guys who have done this before!!!

    I have almost all the parts in place and the plans are done, I am almost ready to start my Menasor/Stunticons.

    My objective is to bring G1 Stunticons into the real world with out pushing into movieverse!!!

    Motormaster=RID PRIME, 1/25th Cabover model, trailer, and other stuff
    Of course the others will be sunstreaker mold, Rodimus Mold, dragstrip mold, and prowl mold.


    I really pushing myself on this. All components will be incorporated into motormasters base mode.
    I am taking artistic liberties in the way the body will be. In Menasor mode, it will not be just parts snapped together, but have "hydrolics".

    Articulation will be:
    FACE..Think of animated Megatrons face
    Ball joint neck
    shoulders will rotate and move forwards and backwards at the chest
    Chest will rotate and tilt
    waist will be 360 degrees
    and of course the other basic joints.

    All car/bot modes will have headlights and tail lights ran off of individual battery boxes per car. Then when connected as Menasor, all will be powered by the same supply, therefore, making it easy to turn off/on all the lights. Menasors eyes will light up as well. Big Hank, thanks for the info!!!!!!

    Clean repaint using DuPont automotive paints. And modifications to cars where need be.

    Ummmmm, I think that is it. I usually do not start a thread this early in the game, but I a welcoming ideas from the start.

    the lights will make his combined mode pretty cool. good luck. and I'd like some more insight on the hydrolics schematics. And hats off for Big Hank, he's been a good help with LEDs.

    Oh yeah. I will try to make it as g1 as I can
    Not movie verse. Well, I still want to retain the over all "boxy" cartoonish feel, but bring it into the real world. Instead of just cars on clips or what not, everything will be inter-graded. There will be exposed "hydraulics", wires, and such, but not on the movieverse level. I can't really describe it much more than that.

    This sounds like a killer idea!! I like the mechanical approach of meshing G1 with real world physics! Hydraulics as musculature are something that I've also been toying with, mostly on the drawing board but you will see a real application very soon! I also wanted to try and incorporate facial features as well. Like you said, mouth that opens, but I think brows too (done like Leader Prime's window visors) are easily possible. I would like to figure out how to make a 'bot sneer as well!


    Hey Encline Waaaaaaay off topic, how long is Leader Jetfire in SR-761 mode from nose cone tip to tail tip? You are one of the few I know that has one on hand!
