This will not be available on Shapeways, but keep reading...

Not with the add-on kit, but maybe in the future.

Is it just the head or maybe some stickers too?
They'll be a Gold, Silver and a Bronze pack, with stickers available in the gold and silver. More details to follow...

I'd still love an opportunity to get a copy of this fantastically rendered head.
Only available for Auto Assembly 2012, but for non-attendee package holders as well. Full details of how to pre-order will be released Monday or Tuesday.

This is what I was thinking, Prime has a certain aesthetic to capture...we'll look into it.

Wow, that's nice, but way too pricey for my tastes. With the exchange rate, that's at least US$100 for a set (plus all the AA exclusive business, but let's face it, if you're reading this forum, you just want the kit most likely).

I'll be excited to see what a finished set looks like, but this is an easy pass for me, especially since it's just the raw Shapeways head and not even a smoothed-out recast.

Sadly I'll have to agree, I was excited to see such a great product, yet shocked at the cost to get one stateside. I had already begun this project when I came across this thread, and thought I was saved from having to make the head myself. Guess I'm back to square one, excellent work on this though.

I mean, at the end of the day, I suppose turnabout is fair play - UK fans have been getting reamed for decades, now it's US fans' turn.


(and ultimately, let's have some perspective here - this an optional fan-created kit for a toy robot. it's not the end of the world if you don't get one.)

That's one way to look at it, though I have to admit, Hasbro themselves have been reaming US fans for the last year. Haven't seen jack on shelves as far as new releases go for a long time now, nothing but Bumblebees as far as the eye can see. Or as Z would call it, "The Yellow Plague".

I would like to get this though, but since I was going to make one anyway, I guess I can't complain too much. The bar has definitely been set.
