Great guys, glad you like them. Thanks for all the feedback!

I have posted a couple of pictures of the parts attached to the stock, for those that don't want to loose the parts in alt-mode. Note that because of the pegs on Hegemon, they end up assymetrical on the stock (it's not horrible, but it's not ideal, either)

The parts are up for sale! I've added a link..(main page)

Yeah, making it work into the transformation wasn't a goal, but they at least attach to the stock (or any other 5mm peg or 5mm hole)

Also for your leg pieces can it fit in alt mode or are they any plans for it in alt mode?


Now as for the hercules I am gonna buy a set for the thighs soon any plans coming up for the tfc uranus.
I've posted detailed instructions for painting on Shapeways including the paints.

I will likely do parts for TFC Uranus, hopefully the chest sheild, but it will be a ways off because I'll need the figure in hand to measure and design the new parts. In the meantime stay tuned, I've got lots more projects on the way for Herc and others.

Hmm...will consider this. I'm not familiar with the toy so I'll need to take a look.

Yes, I put up the polished version! Note that there still might be a bit of stepping but it's way easier to sand out then standard grade. Also note that polished can be tighter than standard, so I updated the peg design to help any fit issues.

Thanks again guys!

Oooh. Oooh.....


Now, if only you Shapeways folks (or a 3rd party reading this) could make a G1 accurate silencer and stock kit, so the extra pieces actually DO something. That's the one thing about Hegemon that I don't particularly care for.

Hello, thanks to Echo for parts. With them, articulated hands and a bit of painting so as is my Hegemon.
