    Hey guys, I just finished a custom G1 Menasor. I used parts from Unicron and Supreme Starscream for the body. I did some custom clay work including sculpting the combined mode head. For the limbs I used the OS KO of FP's Stunticons. I customized Wildrider and and Breakdown so their front ends could flip onto the car's hood so they could attach with car undercarriage facing forward. For Dragstrip, I added a 3rd set of wheels and sculpted the front end to look more like his G1 self.

    This was my first heavily modded project. I intend on using him in my MP collection with my other (close to) MP Sized combiners. I hope you enjoy!

    Thanks to my wife for the awesome pictures!

    That's pretty incredible. Is there a Motormaster?

    Thanks so much! Would love to see it.

    Thanks! No, not this time. I used parts from unicron and starscream. I've thought about doing a v2 of this project to try and get a motormaster out of it.

    hah. Probably because it's a bit too big. It's got a bit of an SD vibe going. Was my first attempt sculpting, though, so I'm thinking next time it may go a bit better.

    Thx :)
