    I haven't seen the video since the day it aired, but I believe he specifically mentioned that Menasor could use the emplacement too.

    Yeah, Mark specifically calls out the gun emplacement being able to be wielded by Menasor as a combiner.

    YouTube (Legacy):
    He’s giving some conflicting information during that part. You cut off the part of the quote where he says it can also be wielded (As opposed to manned) by Menasor, which sounds more like he’s going on a side tangent about it becoming a rifle. Once he goes back to the subject of adjustable height, he does say that what he’s referring to is flipping the binos down to take an inch off, but admittedly his statements are a little unclear. I guess we’ll have to wait and see.

    I think the way I'll use it is: turret for Motormaster, hand weapon for Menasor, since he is bigger.

    I was a bit disappointed that it doesn't seem to come with a smaller hand weapon just for Motormaster. I'm sure you could use the cannon that way with him too,but it's too big and defeats the point of using it on the stand. (If it split into two rifles then that would be arguably just small enough, but I don't think it does that.) It's fine for Menasor though since he is partly made up of the other trailer pieces and is obviously bigger.

    Then I remembered that Astrotrain has an excess of guns and I figured he can spare one. I might even give that chunky Gatling blaster thing to MM since maximum carnage is kinda his thing. (I'm not really fused that it isn't his signature GQ weapon. For someone like Optimus it would bother me as I see his black rifle with that triangular portion as iconic to him. Same for Megatron and his fusion cannon.)That still leaves Astrotrain with a big rifle and two smaller rifles (which are only comparatively small. They are big compared to many figures. I'll likely keep them with him as they're a cool pair of wing blasters for shuttle mode). And that doesn't include the missile battery. (Actually I have two as I bought that third party section with the fin to clean up his back. That doubles as a huge rocket launcher thing for robot mode. Not that he needs more weapons, but if new pieces result in partsforming I'd rather they have a secondary function, like this.)

    I still think for the price they should have provided one more smaller gun with Motormaster, but this is a good example of where excess with one figure can aid another. Redundancy isn't always bad.

    funny how they've drawn Menasor without the cars. Conceptually, it's like Menasor is some sort of Motormaster's super mode, and the other Stunticons are another upgrade of sort to it, kinda like Cybertron/Galaxy Force Optimus with Wingsaber.

    Admittedly showing off the 3rd mode as a stand-alone feature does make the price tag more palatable (for casual consumers)... $90 for a 3 mode figure sounds better than "$90 for 2 modes, plus buy 4 more toys to make this big toy".

    Masquerade had the Autobots be exact duplicates of the Stunticons and Menasor. You can homage Masquerade quite easily by buying two sets of Legacy Stunticons.

    I can only hope Computron comes up eventually. I still kick myself for missing the UW one.

    The explanation is that Legacy Voyagers have seen a price increase while Kingdom Voyagers haven't
