First Look – Hasbro Transformers Generations Combiner Wars Menasor Review

Hasbro Transformers Generations Combiner Wars Menasor 01

Hasbro’s Combiner Wars Menasor figure is the gestalt combined form of the Stunticons, Decepticon characters based on Transformers Generation 1. The characters all can transform from automobiles such as cars, a truck, and race rars and are the rivals to the Autobots Aerialbots and their combined form Superion.

You will need the following figures to build Menasor:

  • Blackjack
  • Dragstrip
  • Dead End
  • Breakdown
  • Offroad
  • Motormaster (includes sword for Menasor)
  • Brake-Neck (G1 Wildrider and optional left arm for Menasor)

Thank you to Hasbro for sending along the figures needed to build Menasor to us for a first look and review.

Sculpt:

In combined form, Menasor stands at roughly 11-3/4″ tall and includes the limbs of five Transformers figures with a sword that can break apart and become a gun and a smaller sword for Motormaster. With Menasor becoming the torso and head, Breakdown, Dead End, Dragstrip, and Blackjack become his limbs and you can transform them into an arm or a leg if you wish. If you wish to keep it G1 accurate, Blackjack was used sometimes as Menasor’s chest. Break-Neck on the other hand was always intended as a limb for Menasor.

The sculpt itself is pretty stable, with all limbs sliding into place and the hands and feet are made up of accessories that come with the individual figures. The elbows are hinged if you swivel the figures arms 45 degrees to use the hinged joints, as seen on the individual figures legs. His legs can easily spread apart once he’s lifted, so you have to keep them pushed together to get him to stand upright once put back down.

Accessories:

Combiner sword (included with Motormaster)

Overall:

Menasor is an excellent figure with a great G1 likeness and the massive size and attention to detail and sculpt on him is just incredible.

Highly Recommended.
