    Easily my most challenging project to date, based upon Warpers stunning design...apologies for the poor lighting, if anyone wants to request any close up shots or what not, I'll be happy to take them come daylight.

    Anyway, without further ado - heeeeeeeeeerrreees Menasor!

    Thanks guys. Its funny how I considered Slingshot to be a challenge, and then somehow manage to pull off an entire Gestalt without too much trouble - now lets just hope Mustardwketchup finishes her Aerialbots designs so he can have a Superion to rumble with!

    In the meantime, who to make next...?

    Brilliant, just brilliant. I remember a guy at my school used to make Dinosaurs out of Blu-Tac, they were STUNNING. He detailed the scales an everything... But this is still pretty badass, I love his face, I don't know why, but it looks very Menasory

    I'd say its the way the artist designed it - the low position of his kabuto and his flat nose gives his face a real look of brutish stupidity perfect for the character.

    I'm really pleased with the way all the colours work together on the piece, when you hold him he looks good enough to eat!

    By Primus...!
    That is part cute, hilarious and awesome... all rolled up into one gestalt form!
    This is amazing!
    You took in almost every detail of the Stunticons and and Menasor and gave him depth (such as adding the cockpit thing and fins of Drag Strip's, as well as Dead End's yellow strip.)
    Amazing.
    I gotta ask, though, is why are the spikes very thin-like? And can he stand on his own?
    Anyway, thank you for doing a 3D take on my TFA Menasor. ;)

    Something I'm very grateful to this site for, is showing me the sort of wonderful artwork that has motivated me to get back into creating my own - so naturally I'm always thrilled when the artists who inspire me approve of what I produce in response :) 

    In answer to your questions, he stands perfectly well, probably due to the weight of his legs compared to his torso, which is mostly formed from crumpled up newspaper with a blu-tack skin on top. The spikes are made from cocktail sticks, which I felt would be the quickest and most durable way to reproduce them from your design.

    Now I just need to find an artist to do some designs I had in mind!
