    yeah, at best im expecting an upscaled magic square menasor. at worst im expecting something like this 11914574_111080139242422_2159353283719747205_n (1).jpg

    Without the four cars it’s not Menasor though. You can’t argue a combiner with only its torso is a combiner without combining.

    I also don’t think I’ve ever seen a Menasor design I like lol.

    I think HasTak might go more G1. That has been the trend of late. That is an IDW version (would like to get to go with Uranos). When I first heard about the increased scale/pricepoint for Motormaster, I almost hoped that HasTak would go Chugsterpiece for scale, but the deluxe limb bots make me think CW it is.

    If Motormaster('s trailer) can do this and be a functioning giant robot on it's own I'll be super disappointed, but not surprised. Cause this is just bad design imo, especially since most of the time they have you rip the "arm" bots in half to stick to his arms and have an elbow.

    i mean, they could just go the direction of the fossilizers and have the stunticons break apart and reform into a monstorous menasor. kinda like the dinobot combiner that preceded volcanicus

    they could also pull a devastator and have the car bot form the upper arm with the trailer forming the forearm.

    Honestly I think starting with Menasor was a mistake because I think they will go the G1 direction (which sucks in my opinion) and it won’t sell all that well. Hope I’m wrong so we can get that Defensor!

    This but I ironically.

    Menasor... and because of that MM mold Optimus Maximus were the worst looking of the CW Combiners. Menasor needed a re-do the most. The next weakest one after that might have been Computron if you went with the Hasbro release. The TT release fixed a lot of problems, though many were not satisfied with Afterburner.

    Bruticus is one of my favourite transformers, so I hope he gets done relatively soon.

    Yeah that’s true. If it is very G1 I’m happy for those that enjoy the design but imo it is the worst designed G1 combiner. Still might pick it up though, I like the individual bots.

    well a defensor means a hotspot, who will most likely be retooled into onslaught, who becomes the torso of bruticus

    What do you think they're going to do with a Commander Class truck and trailer mould aside from Motormaster?

    :rolleyes:

    I hope they modernised it, at least the limbs. Because g1 menasor has really unique components, but the design is lacking. At least in that regard.

    Oh I don’t doubt that if the combiners are successful that Bruticus will come. It’s just a matter of when. My guess with limited information is that the pattern may be Decepticon -> Autobot -> Decepticon -> Autobot.
    So we could see something like Menasor -> Defensor -> Bruticus -> Superion -> Abominus -> Computron
    Though I don’t know if they’d want to spend over half a decade doing G1 combiners. Guess we’ll have to wait and see.

    I doubt it, we don't tend to see the Commander until later.

    But are we really that close to the Legacy reveal?
