    Yeah, I’m not a fan of that part of the transformation. I had that piece in front of the tire break at the hinge the first time I went from alt to bot using a spudger. Waiting on a replacement part from FT.

    It's miniscule for the most part but damn my OCD levels of attention to detail feel for you.

    Yup. Add me to the list that finds Spoiler’s transformations as joyful as as root canal without sedatives. Geez. Those really are tolerances from hell.

    I want Deadend yesterday!

    Also, I personally don't think Spoiler is that much of a chore to transform. Admittedly I've only been around the block twice but still, both times I found hassle free. Emgo was helpful.

    Maybe it's my articulated fingers? (although I do have a f*&%ed up finger from a basketball dislocation which I never got seen to early on in the pandemic because I didn't want to go into the Hospital for such a superficial injury considering what was going on at the time)... now the bone a fused and it sort of sticks out at a 45 degree angle, which doesn't exactly help transformations.

    You guys running with typewriter-syndrome?

    No new info, but this was answered in January of this year.

    Especially if those stumps are not a uniform grey - by this token they will be striped.

    Maybe there will be parts that cover them?

    That's the first thing I realised, when they decided to change colour of the trailer to dark grey.
    I am sure they won't leave it like this, and probably add a pair of fake hollow pillars to the skeleton structure, that will cover MM arms (or at last the unwanted colour).

    Yet another element to add to the list. If Motormaster had simply been a transforming cab that just used the second trailer...

    1. Weight and stability issues would be reduced
    2. Motormaster would scale more accurately
    3. Motormaster wouldn't have gray on his arms
    4. Motormaster wouldn't have a backpack
    5. Motormaster would just have one trailer, instead of two
    6. Transformation would be simpler
    7. Menasor's shoulder pillars would automatically be the right color



    Maybe Fanstoys should bring back the Perfect Fusion line to do an alternative cab-only Motormaster that is smaller, more toon accurate, and lightweight, which would still combine with the Fanstoys Menasor trailer. That way everyone wins.

    I can't see anything that resembles a trailer on the Menasor's skeleton, I wonder whether the pieces just store inside a trailer or FT did a very good job with the transformation.

    I imagine it'll basically turn inside out.

    I really wish they would give us a render of Motormaster with the double trailer. It's hard to imagine that they could form the entire skeleton from a trailer the same size as his current one. Will he end up with one small trailer and one big trailer? Or will the second one just be obscenely long, DX9 style? Come on Fanstoys, as least give us that little scrap of info.
