    100% with ya...and to add to it, if parts forming will make the bot and alt modes better too, I'm more than happy with that also

    My only concern of Motor Master, he better have cab feet. Bitches love cab feet.

    Photo's are nice, FP's one does look nicer I'll give it that all day long (or until a 3p does something with the FOC one), sadly they don't show the hell of having that thing FP made fall apart on you all the time, destroys it own joins and just how off the robot mode of the 3 non FP ones are.

    I don't have FOC Bruticus so I can't comment but FP's one to me is not a fun toy to own and have limited play value due to the shear number of parts you need to keep track of.

    Looks wise FP wins it but for me it not just how good something looks.

    I respect your opinion, but I absolutely disagree with it. Well everything except the destroying it's own joints part. My FP Brut's knee joint on Munitioner is almost gone, but the shoulder joints are just fine.

    Nothing falls apart on mine. The play value is off the charts for me. And the number of parts and how they are used in the three different modes are the biggest part of that.

    I really just wanna thank FP for making Menasor. He's always been my favorite combiner, and in their styling and with their vehicle mode choices, just...dammit I TOLD MYSELF I WOULDN'T CRY

    Huh, really? I have never had that issue with the Colossus. The only thing that tends to pop off on this is the cannon mount on the back.

    And to be honest part of the fun for me is the lots and lots of small bits, part of why I like the PE scouting force, but different play patterns I guess.

    Still I have to admit that I have been really disappointed with the FOC Bruticus and at this point would be happy to get rid of it for what I paid for it.

    It is totally each to there own but honestly I feel the way FP part formed that one is just to much, if you had compared say giant I would probably have agreed with you, its just a lot of the extra weapons in lone robot mode most of, feel very tacked on. Like the shoes on onslaughts back, yes got missiles in them but they are still a big old pair of shoes on his back, or the missile pods on vortex that basically make him fall over.

    I know it cos of what they had to work with so I should be more forgiving but really I just want a better toy for the money you have to spend on that.

    I know this whole thing probably makes me a hell of a hypercritical as I love TFC Herc and two of them have hands hanging off their backs, but I guess there is a line somewhere for me and FP landed the wrong side of it with that one.

    Although put up railracer from RID and you'll find a fully integrated combiner can be done and look freaking awesome.

    Well, it couldn't be helped considering that they were modifying a preexisting gestalt. Can't be helped, I guess. I'm personally pretty middle-of-the-road when it comes to parts-forming gestalts.

    Considering a combiner is, by its definition, a parts-former (very big parts; entire robots in fact), I'm okay with a certain degree. But I'm really not down with gestalts that are just vehicles glued to a giant robot; which is unfortunately exactly what Menasor looked like most of the time in the old show..

    Yeah, I knew there was something wrong in the very moment I typed that :D 

    That's what I've thought initially but they should be legs, why a port in the center of the figure? Unless they are going the Scramble City Route:confused: 

    Why does this seems to me the most logical explainaton? :eek:

    Just a guess after seeing that silhouette pic, but it looks like Motor Master's cab may connect to these guys by those ports. Car in front of Menasor leg, MM's cab in the back (calf-ish)?

    I was thinking of something similar to what MT did for giant on the arms, but with the "skeleton" being part of the voyager center fig, or his trailer.

    My only point of trepidation concerning the Menasor silhouette is that his elbow joints appear to be placed rather...high. Will probably look better when we see it in full.
