Menasor the uncombiner by Jin-Saotome Menasor the uncombiner by Jin-Saotome
My first DOTM custom is a little off the beaten track. With everyone doing combiners these days I thought I'd shake things up a bit by making something new, a combiner that doesn't combine! Wait, what? Introducing Dark of the Moon Menasor done as a standalone character. The theme for Menasor is that he's been repairing himself from different vehicles over the years from opponents (or friends) that have fallen to him in battle; hence the patchwork colors reminiscent of the G1 combiner.

He's made from the Voyager DOTM Megatron, PCC Huffer's commander head (which looked like Menasor's anyway giving me the idea) Hailstorm's chestplate, Neo Shifter sword, G1-ish Mazinger hand, Bayformer articulated Gears hands, and Tomahawk's missile pods. His waist/upper legs are actually transformed backwards so that you can see the tires on his thighs, making him look different from Megatron's mold but still giving it full articulation. I'm drawn to the rounded/oversized fists for combiners because it brings me back to the detachable pieces I had left over as a kid. Even without the Stunticons to form his body, Menasor will still rise to the challenge of battling the Autobots!

Nice concept! But I think it would be cooler if his vehicle mode is a mix of many vehicle parts scraped from other transformers he killed although i think that would be really hard to make

I think it's kinda sad that I recognized the Mazinger hands before reading the description.

This Menasor custom is very original and creative, it may not split into the Stunticons, but it still transforms into a deadly truck.

Is Hailstorm's chestplate removable for transformation? From the transformed shots, it looks like it wouldn't fit underneath the grill/shoulder pads.

Yep, it can be removed and stored while in vehicle mode like the hands.

I'm guessing they store in that space under the back half of the tanker?

Honestly, I could see Menasor looking like this and not being a combiner in the movies o3o

This is awesome, and very well colored :3

Looks good! Though I think some more color added to the limbs and such would really bring out more of a 'patch work' kinda feel, and (doubting its possible) some way to mod the limbs so they each have there own look to them (again that would prop cack up the transformation)

wow thats a really cool idea. It seems a lot more fluid as a combiner. And i guess one could add extra bits but over all it pulls the look off very well. Best part is you get the poses without worrying about things getting detached or stuff like that.

Oh man those hands you have on him in the first few pics do look just perfect. Rounded and simple like G1 somewhat, but matching how the rest looks. I actually really like the bigger rounder ones a lot to though. Does he come with 2 sets of interchangeable hands?

Yep, he'll come with both pairs for you to choose. He's also going up on Ebay tomorrow.

Got em! :D Looks great. Magnetic chest piece fits perfectly.
I'd have liked to have seen it stick somewhere in truck mode but it is what it is.. and he's on display in bot mode anyway.
