    Heh heh, nice.

    I personally always love seeing Animated customs, especially when it comes down to combiners like Menasor.

    I personally had once thought about using Soundwave as a leg (I am surprised at how good he works as said leg too, never would had thought that it would have a build in foot too), until I settled on using Rodimus Minor for a leg (who too has a nice build in foot mode when mistransforming him around) for my own Animated Menasor custom (still working on it whenever I have the time for it).

    I really am interested at seeing what you'll be using as hands and as combiner connectors for your version of Animated Menasor; will be following this one closely man, good luck!

    Another Menasor masterpiece from you, this time in Animated form.
    Awesome work, Edmund. :thumb 

    Can't wait to see it finished.

    will be interesting to see on how you mistransform the hot rod as leg component.
    how about some teaser?
    will post a step by step when i start with the disassembling for paint.
    this round of mod is pretty straight forward as i dun have to deal with the weight issue of MP01 as main torso.

    thanks for the compliments and time to look see for all who dropped by.

    Nice! A long time ago I was thinking about trying this myself. A few country moves later and all I got are pics of limb-mode concepts.

    Your arms choices are the same as mine, and I chose Rodimus and Lockdown for the legs. I have a digibash of them all in bot and alt modes on here somewhre -- either in this forum or in artwork.

    I was hoping to use the feet of Jazz and Blurr as Menasor's hands somehow, but never did finish the concept. Here's some pics I took while living back in hometown P.E.I. Seeing that your currently working on this I thought I might as well post up these old pics. Perhaps they'll help you or someone else somehow, I dunno.

    Good work so far. I'll be watching this.

    thanks for sharing primeROLLER.
    here're some pics for those who are interested.

    i have tried BB as well as leg mode.

    very promising but looks too thin from side profile and may have issue in sturdiness. though it does have some articulation for the instep. credit to primeROLLER for sharing it.

    lockDOWN as wildRIDER

    soundwave as breakDOWN
    I was tempted to use this as wildRIDER
    (looking at the tattoo and black/red colour scheme)
    :: the legs have been flipped

    Looking spiffy. This is the first TFA Menasor that doesn't have obnoxious combiner kibble. Well done!

    Well I've basically mistransformed the figure the same way as prime roller, but with the arms resting behind against the legs to give it a little bit of bulk (check link below)

    http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/attac...-moriamurs-wip-corner-possible-leg-mode-2.jpg

    I have a WIP thread buried around Radicons somewhere... An other mistransformation is the same as Prime Roller, but with the arm spread out forward, kind of giving it a 2 toed foot mode like look

    your mis-transformation of rodimus is brilliant as well.
    thanks for sharing. rodimus as breakdown should be just as good.

    BB may have issue when it is used as foot to step forward. furthermore there's nothing at the back (it's a curved profile on the hood) to support unless i add kibble to it.

    soundwave's knee pad will be used as heels for stability. it's pretty solid with its bulk.

    i haven't really tried out rodimus's stability yet

    thanks henry :)

    I am looking forward to this project's completion. I too am interested in a less kibbly Menasor, even if i am guilty of a very kibbly one. My Motormaster is just too beastly to be held up without extra support :) 

    Either way, glad to see this resurgence of TFA Menasors.
