    thanks man. always good to hear from you

    thanks PK. the arms are definately my favorite aspect of the gestalt.

    thanks man. He does require kibble for combined mode. waist/thighs, hands, feet, chest plate, and head/shoulder section.

    I know what you mean!

    thanks a lot. i'm glad you like him. This custom is one of those projects that magically came together during the build stage.

    thanks!

    not quite kibble free ;) 

    thanks guys!

    thanks again bud! glad you like him.

    thanks man. I wish I could have delivered something like this, way back when I made that old menasor for you.

    Thanks dude. looking forward to seeing yours completed.

    thanks mack!

    thanks a lot for the comments guys!

    thanks man. I wish Menasor's thighs were actually a part of motormaster, but they arn't. If I was able to accomplish that with the same look of the combined mode, I probably wouldn't be selling him lol

    Holy spank, that is awesome. If I can ask what did you use for the hips and thigh section? ( feel free to tell me to mind my own damn business) my only complaint with this guy is that he isn't sitting on my shelf at home :)

    haha thanks man. and no problem. the waist/thighs were made from multiple parts. the waist is G1 scorponok/G1 piranacon display stand. the thighs are from a M.A.R.S. bot/cybertron prime/U. Silverbolt

    even though the pseudo forearm is an extra piece it really integrates well with the rest of the arm to make look like an arm (and not cars attach to an arm). Hand seem a tad small. Overall great work.

    Easily the most impressive combiner I've seen in a looooong time. You did everything right and it all works. About the only thing I'd crit is that it'd be nice if Wildrider was a lil bit darker but it may be the lighting.
    Anywho, I wouldn't be surprised if this became the new Menasor standard.

    Love It!
    THE CARS ARE ACTUAL ARMS!!!! too many of these have had the cars mounted on the combiner arm. same for the legs
    Very creative combination. Really diggin how Motormaster is upside down in menasor mode,
    His head is SOOO G1, in a good way. perfect

    I totally agree here.

    The only thing I'd comment remotely negatively on is the usage of Cyb Prime. I think the mold looks a bit too futuristic in comparison with the rest of the cast. I do think you did well with trying to incorporate it into the "gestalt" (not "combiner" but actual meaning of the word) of this. I think the modifications to the Prime trailer add to that as well.

    Great work, bud :thumb

    Interesting take on the chest transformation! Very fresh!

    This guy looks great... the only thing I find myself wanting is maybe some shading/detailing around the brow/eye area on Menasor... there's something a little bland about the face, and some dramatic shadow around there could give him a bit more... uh... menace. :)

    This is very nicely done. I can see that it's easily connected to any G1 fans out there. Such a well build with great proportion.
