    I wanted to do a mod changing the shape of the head, but I actually like it like this.

    As backstory I think Soundwave copied the Headmaster technology for the combiner.:D

    It will kinda look like this:

    Still waiting on Blurr for dragstrip.
    Will use posable hands of an 1/60 Gundam Exia and feet of another set.

    Great idea, although I'd remove the smarta## Smirk Headmaster in favor for something a lil more menacing.

    :D Yeah. He does look kinda cute instead of Menasing.. but that is a bit in line with the animated feel. I think that will be a bit compensated with the colors AND a big gun/ sword ;)

    This looks very cool... tho i hope his legs aren't quite as stubby when you're finished, he might be a bit too cute!

    Will you be making the limb bots as actual extensions rather than just padding, as they appear here? As it is, Manasor's not really going to be any taller than the solo Motormaster, excepting for the bigger head.
    I do agree with Primus_feather that the face could do with being a little more menacing (hence the name :p ). The 'cutesy' feel may be suit the Animated look to some extent, but for a charcetr like Menasor, it really doesn't work. Besides, you don't see Animated Megatron looking cute, do you?

    They are padding on the upper arms. Lower arms will be from a gundam exia.
    For the leg the limbbot is the lower leg and the feet are probably from a armored core set.
    Your right that is going to be about the same size as Ultra Magnus.

    Still thinking about the cute factor. I have a couple of bumblebee heads lying around. Maybe I give him a "SKULL NECKLACE"... But I'll change the smile, maybe a faceplate.. dunno yet.

    Looks pretty cool man. Maybe just give him a new name since most of us aren't getting a Menasor/menacing vibe from him

    But your right, When its finished and I don't have a good name yet, I'll put up a poll.

    Very promissing! I don't mean to necro this, but you did link to it in another post so I feel justified posting here.

    Personally I would have the "leg" jazz facing the other way, just like lockdown. It kind of looks strange to me for him to be "hood down."

    Are you planning feet for the combiner in addition to hands?

    I love it, and I love the smirk, it's very TFA-ish.

    I think it works to it is cute, but I think it does menace in the same way the Stay Puffed Marshmallow Man was in Ghostbusters.
