"Seismus. The 'S' is silent."
Credit first goes to Cybermnky on the TFW2005 boards for proposing this idea and thinking up the
initial transformation scheme. I was captured by the awesomeness of the idea and I agreed to do it.
Seismus belongs to a clan of war crazed robots called the Smashmasters, who eschew the
cowardice of ranged combat in preference for getting into the thick of things. There's nothing
Seismus likes better than to smash some heads together and prop up whatever remains on the tip
of his trusty spear.
He transforms into a mighty war hammer, powerful enough to level a skyscraper in one hit, or
that's what he likes to tell the guys over energon shots. Whether that is true remains to be seen.
Seismus comes armed with his spear, shield and his mini-Seismus, which unfortunately does not
transform into anything. He also comes with conversion sheaths to allow larger figures to wield him
in Hammer mode.
You can smash some heads at:
Smashmaster Seismus on Shapeways
Seismus comes with a bunch of accessories. When you receive your print, make sure all the whole
set is there. Leave the accessories aside and concentrate on assembling the main bot.
You might find that some parts will be too loose, and some too tight. It is an unfortunate side effect
of Shapeways Strong Flexible. Don't panic. Add thin layers of glue to loose joints to tighten them up,
and shave of joints with a blade or sandpaper to loosen them up.
I've engineered the model to be as sturdy as possible even with the idiosyncracies of the material,
but nothing is 100%. Bad prints shouldn't happen that often, though.
Comments, critique and happy conversations much welcome!

First there were headmasters. Then there were targetmasters. Followed by the powermasters. Now... the hammermaster, Thorbot!
