Fiction

Generation 1 cartoon

In envy of the Autobot's vehicular modes, Megatron stole various human vehicles and customised them so he can have his own car team, the Stunticons. Before they were given life, he brought them out for a test drive via remote control, forcing them to flip, somersault, fly off the road, drive up cliffs and bash through forests without a scratch. Having satisfied Megatron's idea of normalcy, he headed to Cybertron to get redneck Cybernetic personalities for them, save for Emocon. They join to become ugly animated Menasor.

At some point in Cybertron's recent history, the Stunticons were deemed psychotic and too dangerous to function in society, and as a result were placed into perpetual stasis lock inside of a prison facility. Later, in an attempt to create a diversion while he set his final plans in motion, Shockwave arranged for the release of the Stunticons. They formed into Menasor and ran amuck for awhile, until Ultra Magnus arrived and began insulting them. Unable to reconcile with this, the five Stunticons began to bicker with each other over whose fault it was that they were failing, temporarily stopping Menasor and allowing Ultra Magnus to ram the combiner in the chest, forcing him to separate into his component parts and disabling the Stunticons.

Toys

Generation 1

  • Motormaster (Stunticon, 1985)
Japanese ID number: D-50
G1Motormaster toy

If his feet are made out of a truck cab, he should be like, three times taller than Optimus Prime. But apparently it's just a tiny truck.

Motormaster transforms into a black Kenworth K100 Aerodyne sleeper truck pulling a long dark silver trailer. Unlike many Transformers truck toys, his trailer is pernamently attached to the cab. Motormaster can assume a base/repair bay mode which can connect to the Decepticon city Trypticon or the Autobot city Metroplex. A small black scout car that is included can be used in this mode.
In robot mode his is armed with a long purple 'cyclone' rifle and a large silver vacuum-metallized sword. He also forms the central body of Menasor, with the small car becoming his chest piece and Menasor's mask covering his face. He also comes with Menasor's hands and feet.
Motormaster's Japanese release included a Optimus Prime like launcher mechinism for the base mode that can propel the Roller Car down the ramp.
  • Drag Strip (Stunticon, 1986/1987)
US team number: S4
Japanese ID number: D-52
G1Dragstrip toy

I turn into a real race car, I swear.

Drag Strip transforms into a Tyrell P-34 Six-Wheeler race car. He comes with a purple double-barreled plasma energy cannon that attaches to the back of his vehicle mode.
In robot mode he is armed with a small purple laser pistol. Since he was designed with the Scramble City-style cobination, he can form the arm or leg to any similarly-constructed robot combination, though his nominal placement is as the left arm to Menasor.
  • Dead End (1986)
Japanese ID number: D-54
G1DeadEnd toy

Cheer up, emo Decepticon.

The original Dead End toy transformed into a maroon Porsche 928. He comes with a black double-barreled laser cannon that attaches to the back of his vehicle mode.
In robot mode, Dead End's legs transformers similarly to Breakdown's, flipping and inverting. He is armed with a small black laser pistol. As he was designed with the Scramble City-style combination, he can form the arm or leg to any similarly-constructed robot combination, though his nominal placement is as the right arm to Menasor.
  • Wildrider (Stunticon, 1986)
Japanese ID number: D-53
G1Wildrider toy

If you don't buy this toy, then the terrorists have... lost, I guess?

Wildrider transforms into a dark grey Ferrari 308 GTB sports car. He comes with a large, black double-barreled laser cannon that attaches onto the back of his vehicle mode.
In robot mode, Wildrider is armed with black laser pistol. He usually forms Menasor's left leg, but as a Scramble City combiner limb, he can also occupy any other limb position.
  • Breakdown (Stunticon, 1986/1987)
US team number: S2
Japanese ID number: D-51
G1Breakdown toy

What're YOU looking at?

The original Breakdown toy transformed into a white Lambourghini Countach. He comes with a blue double-barreled laser cannon that attaches to the back of his vehicle mode.
In robot mode, Breakdown's legs transformers similarly to Dead End's, flipping and inverting. He is armed with a small blue laser pistol. As he was designed with the Scramble City-style cobination, he can form the arm or leg to any similarly-constructed robot combination, though his nominal placement is as the right leg to Menasor.


Combined form

  • Menasor (1986)
Japanese ID number: D-55
G1menasor toy

Not Optimus Prime and the Autobots in cosplay.

Menasor is formed by transforming Motormaster into his torso mode, attaching a chest plate/scout car, waist armour and mask on him, then connecting the other Stunticons into the appropriate limb slots in Motormaster's arms and legs. Fists and feet are then attached to the limbs. He is armed with Motormaster's sword and cyclone rifle.
Menasor is the smallest of the Scramble City-type combiners in the 'Generation 1 toyline.
Menasor was sold individually as the Stunticons or as a giftset.
An Japanese VS-A set with Superion was planned, but unreleased.
