This is truly shocking news..
It's just so surreal to read this - It really is difficult to believe..
He was truly an inspiration. Actually - many of you kitbashers here are an inspiration - but Bill made the impossible into reality. And they were flawless..
MasterPiece Power Master Optimus Prime, MasterPiece Motormaster and Menasor, War Within Megatron.. the list goes on..
He had a lot of ideas.. and a lot of projects going on at the same time..
Bill was always thinking of what to do next - what would be his next project..
I joined Transtopia two years ago because I was so inspired by the creations. After looking at TFM's kitbashes - I had confidence to do my own.
Bill's encouraging words motivated me.. I mean - the guy never put down any of the ideas that I had - he only added to them..
and for that I thank him..
After posting a few drawings here - TFM and I collaborated using the Myth Wars concept and created the Gargoyle/Dinobots, Stone/Constructicons, and MW Megatron (which was a winged, fire-breathing, horse).
Even during his working on MP Menasor he wanted to scratchbuild a MW Megs..!
I guess he always had to do work on something - always had to figure out how to accomplish/fix problems ..
I will really miss him.
He truly was the TransFormer Master..
