SU&TM$ :ic$:

I am fully down for a FP Menasor and at this point only a FP Menasor! I will still be joining the TFCC subscription club and getting their Breakdown (to go with my HTS Dragstrip) but this needs to happen. Poor little Superion, now there's going to be two bid bad combiners to hold him down while the third just wales on him! :lol: He's going to need some backup too eventually. I just hope they use a design similar to the one in the Ongoing for Motormaster.

Oh god, for a moment there I thought you would use the R word. :shock:

I like this news, hopefully everything will be available through normal stores as well and not just the Core with the insane shipping rate.

So you guys over here at Seibertron have had no idea that FP were working on a Menasor? A FP member, who was at BotCon 2011, showed a bunch of people photos of various designs prototypes for their Menasor combiner.

It's funny that we see that post... It's been stated on the OP, that FP is coming out with not-Menasor. Anyway, thanks for your help Venksta! Appreciate it much. :BOWDOWN:

Venksta, it's been an unconfirmed but common rumor and assumption here that they're making one but no proof or confirmation was ever provided here. I'm on TFW as well but I stick to the Radicons section there. Are any pics or design sketches available?

The only saving grace to me as a toy with the original MM was his colorscheme and the fact that he WASN'T an Optimus clone......this way he pretty much will be. Hope I'm wrong there, and yes I get that keeping MM in scale with scout sized Stuntis pretty much rules out a combined trailer/cab design but even so......


If you are talking about a "classics" style upgrade, which most of FPs stuff has been, and not a straight upscaling of a G1 design, it would be possible to make Motormaster more of a box truck, and not necessarily a tractor trailer design.

I picked up this Hotwheels truck and stuck on a couple Decepticon reprolabels.
Viola! Instant mini Motormaster!

I don't see why the 3rd party guys couldn't use this design for MM.

Yea I got that, but reading the sentence up to that one point my mind just wandered in that direction, maybe because it seems to be the hottest topic on the internet at the moment.

So the Menesor rumour actually has some foundation other than wishful thinking getting repeated?

No, I get that. I live in PA and one of my friends is a hard core Penn Stater and it was like pulling teeth to get him to realize that it was about the little kids and not the damn football team. He has since told me he was being an ass.

Evidently, and it's just what I've been waiting to hear! :DANCE:

Crossfire Bruticus, Green Giant, and now an actual Fansproject Menasor! It's a good time to be an adult collector!

Always nice to hear the FP Menasor get confirmed again. Hopefully, we get to see these prototype pictures Venksta mentioned soon. If they had prototypes at last years BotCon, I can't believe we haven't seen anything yet.
