Right now a Thugger costs <$10 (WSF). With the slammers and triggers, the total goes up to <$30. I'm sure folks here would buy an upscaled version if the total is less than $60. That is if you decide to do an upscaled version.

I want to address specifically the TFA Arcee subject in this reply, since I've received many comments about it.

What exactly is bad about the current TFA Arcee that warrants a replacement? I mean, besides toon-accuracy. (If toon accuracy is an issue, there are many other figures I'd like to tackle before Arcee)

I think the issue is that people would like more classicy style arms so they can use Animated Arcee as Classics Arcee. The head and arms are what really make the difference from the Animated from a classics aesthetic for a lot of people.

Yes exactly what Cybermnky said, and since the new PE Arcee coming out is so expensive i'd rather modify my Animated Arcee for a more classics style.

I think Hasbro would do that if they ever make some new TFPrime Soundwave attachments. I believe there are other items in his list of to do items that he has to work on first. Let's just wait.

Hey Fakebuster, so I recently got my order for these awesome little guys in and I just have to ask you a question.
Could you please team up with a 3rd party company and produce these guys as finished figures?
I mean building them was pretty cool and fun, but I really, really hate the material and I'm really untalented with paints. I also think that the material just doesn't do these guys any justice at all.

Addressing the Arcee arms, I honestly have no problem with her hands. I mean she can't hold anything aside from her swords, which bothers some people, but not me.

My issue is her elbows. I realize they're needed for transformation, but I'd rather have slimmer elbows. Which would make her more G1 accurate, true. But I want to put clothes on her.

Not yet...Let's see how the TFP series matures before I create anything for it.

Good suggestion, and in fact I'm in contact with a 3rd party group now and we are actively considering doing an official version of the WFC recordicons.

The thing is, we can get away with a lot of stuff in Shapeways that conventional methods cannot do, so you'll have to accept that official versions might have some compromise in design. But, be assured I'll try my best to push the envelope and make them as close to the Shapeways versions as possible.

If I'm doing a set for Arcee, it will not be soon cuz I'm still not 'feeling' the idea yet. Also, can I ask for a favour? Can we have this discussion on Arcee be moved to my main Shapeways thread? I want to keep this thread devoted to Thuggers alone. Thanks for the help!
