    This. What a crappy figure. I love Motormaster and all, but that doesn't make this appeal to me in the slightest.

    You want this guy? I've got a BM Optimus I'll paint right up for you. Then all you have to do is petition reprolabels to make some stickers.

    Release a G2 Menasor before you waste the plastic on this dud.

    Universe 1.0/Energon was the time period when I got into collecting. I wish we still had a line of wacky repaints, or at least that Generations could use any of their pre-FOC molds.

    Because G1 Motormaster is obviously a much better mold. :p

    Haha, true, it's not that great. But I'll bet you a lot more people would take a G2 Menasor than this thing. To each his own.

    I guess I just don't ever see the point of Motormaster with no combining Stunticons, in any line.

    Don't know if it's been mentioned but that truck mode looks just like the one for TF4? Hmmm
    Will we get a Stunticon combiner for the new movie line?

    It's really that prototype Octane that interests me the most. The colour palette aside, it seems to be a step up from what we got without the cumbersome shield kibble. A shame about the sticky-uppy parts on the trailer.

    There were several unused concepts for this line. Motormaster would ahve been interesting, but I think there were at least a couple other unused concepts that could have been better.

    Looking through the other page, some of those prototypes/concepts could have been interesting. Most especially what would have been G2 Laser Prime's trailer, and then when that mold got repainted as Scourge for RID...:drunk 
    Other than both being cab-over styled semis...I'm not seeing the comparison.

    Plans changed, and they ended the line earlier.

    There were going to be several store exclusives that got canned, too. That's where the ever popular Toxitron came from.

    When I saw the design the first thing I though of was the cab-over new semi from the filming. Might be coincidence...might not. There is supposed to be controversy over which character this is. So, I am thinking it's either going to be called Menasor (not Motormaster) or it's a Con in which we would not expect to have a Semi alt-mode.

    Yeah, with the face sculpt, this was MUCH more suited for Motormaster than Prime. Too bad this never came out. Heck, I'd still buy it, too, if it got released in the 30th line or through the club.

    I would suspect this was designed to be a companion piece to the Universe King Atlas & Universe Soundwave toys.

    It looks like Space warp - I wonder if the folks who make the KO Thunderclash have seen this image ?

    I have been looking for a suitable thing to combine with a potential deluxe Energon Scourge for a while other than slicer - so this might work character wise if this deco was used on Energon Rodimus - especially as there's a Titanium 6" Rodimus repaint that also helps justify it too.
