    This Menasor is definitely up there (and better than your Superion), but lose the filters and give us more pics

    Damn! He looks good! Looks like you used Prime's thighs. Very cool. What about individual bot modes?

    Looks great. Would like to see a few more pics without the photoshop filters though.

    Are the upper legs from MP Prime?

    I actually like more photoshop filters, try adding lens flare too! ;-)

    Great job, I have to ask about the dragstrip and...the other arm...are the lower halves add ons, or do those parts transform? Because they look like a solid chunk.

    good eye. Are those actual sealed together legs on both Wildrider and Dragstrip....and a swivel type peg added for the wrist articulation? Couldn't see that with the PS filters, but noticing that now. Actually, they look like clipped on parts OVER the existing robot's legs

    I really like it man the added bulk to Motormaster just makes it look soo kickass. only improvement I can see is make the hands bigger they look really small almost not even there

    thanks!

    i think theyll still be happy with their purchase because mine is just a different style used, they still own a 1 of a kind handmade and most likely handpainted custom that you just cant run to the store or order online to by.

    man im sorry about the filter! ill get those swapped out asap. crotch plate is actual g1 plate bulked up.

    no problem thats what im here for.

    Menasor isnt 100 percent yet, so i still have some things to finish up as for the LEDs i have like 4 different heads i still have to wire up,
    crotch is original g1, upper thighs i destroyed a 100 dollar anniversary prime, man that hurt. bot modes? man your going to make me take them apart...lol.
    your correct g1 chest.

    sorry was just going for a cartoon feel.

    WOW man thats a lot of homework you just gave me...lol, ill try.

    Greatly appreciated!! especially coming from you.

    thanks i guess...lol. yeah i had to go with the smaller hands because there wasnt a lot of room to work with when using the entire bot as arms, very little mounting points and joint strength when considering arm articulation.

    sorry about the filters jin, just wanted to say ive admired your work for years!
    yeah i was just messing around with the pics sometimes i get carried away ill have those swapped out.

    YOUR GOOD! bot modes coming not looking forward to separating and transforming each one..lol.

    thanks

    let me know if i can help, glad you like it.

    unfortunately yeah, RIP Optimus..

    THANK YOU BOTH

    I don't understand why people keep thinking I'm Jin Saotome. Someone from another forum asked the same thing.

    h

    Ya he looks awesome, the only things that is a problem is his tiny lady hands, you need some big monster hands so he can rip apart bots.

    I like this one better than your superion, it seems to have a better use of the vehicles as limbs.

    Some bot mode pics would be great, and as other has said, lose the filter.

    yeah took me a while to just find hands that i could mount to dragstrip and deadend they have very little mounting points which is why i think a lot of people dont go this route but these were the only hands i could get to work.

    Menasor looks insane! I really love the combined look, but I'm also looking forward to seeing the individual bots and how these combine (mainly Motormaster in bot mode and combined mode).

    Keep up the great work! This is my favorite of your combiners so far.

    lol--I think people just skim over things without reading more carefully. They see "satomi" and it registers "saotome", similar to how you can remove certain letters from words in a paragraph and still be able to read it (the mind is smart enough to pick up on the missing letters and keep you reading, but at times like this, it skims and reads what it wants to). Easy mistake for some, I guess.
