Menasor

Motto: "always moving ahead to find out more"
Weapon: Brawn Blaster
This is my 3rd combiner project Menasor ,after devastator and defensor . Accumulating from my previous experience in building a combiner ,I have really taken a mile stone ahead in getting less kibble and tighter joint done .Besides all those precious experience I have gain ,I have also accepted critics in improving my previous job and also inject new ideas in my current and future project .Stunticons are always my favourite character during my childhood days where I used to collect 1 by 1 to make them combine as menasor .Making 1 menasor alive do reminisce me to the old days .It took me a few months to get those pieces of job combine into 1 and also I have spent some very good quaity time in making those individual stunticons alive by giving them a detail paint job .I coated them with a very thin layer of lacquer paint and diffuse it lightly with some very define detailing process .Took me almost near to 2 months in getting the paint job done .Its really a painstaking proccess but after seeing the overall result ,all the hard work are paid off .And here is the completed Menasor .

Would it be possible for you to make at least a short video showing off how you got them to link up?

It's rather incredibly impressive. :D

Weapon: Indepentently Targetable Particle Beam Cannons
I am also interested in knowing how you worked the limb combining/articulation...

reason being (and I hate to seem like a nay-sayer since this IS such a beautiful piece, but you did say you welcome criticism), is that none of your pictures show him with either of his arms rotated UP or his legs in any kind of spread-out/action stance...and usually in a pictorial that is a dead giveaway of a poorly-articulated 'bot.

It seems as if his arms are almost "hard-wired" at the shoulder and the only articulation is at the elbow (where it is already normally occurring at the individual bots's legs/knees) and there seems to be very limited rotation/bending at the Gestalt's knee's (due to how they appear to be attached....MM's legs appear to make up over 50% of the entire Gestalt leg).

If there IS some kind of rotator-piece there, you are doing yourself a disservice by not showing it off and posing your custom Menasor in as many different poses/stances as you can.

I'm gonna jump in here. If you squint, he's using the rotation joints that connect Leobreaker (On LOeo's back) to Optimus' shoulder for the Savage Claw Mode as the joint for Menasor's arms. Rather ingenius. It's the same plug as Prime's standrd arms go into as well. So at least for Shoulder Articulation, he should be set.

I am curious about the knees, although that may come down to a weiht issue I suspect.

Heck, I'd really like to see some piece by piece pictures. If it has to be a video, then I'll watch it, but I'd rather a series of photos. Less humdrum and not full of you trying to kill dead air time while you unfold parts...

Oh duh, that is an awesome idea. I'd completely forgotten about that gimmick.
