View Poll Results: What are your thoughts on how to release this kit?
Get Shapeways done by Spring. Painting req'd, but it will be quickly available for all 5 FOC molds 31 17.61%
Take up to 1 year to design & release via 3rd party. I can WAIT so I don't have to PAINT. 81 46.02%
Do both Shapeways (release soon) and 3rd party. (KO's will likely happen but I want the original) 61 34.66%
I just want SOMETHING to fix my Bruticus--a low-priced knockoff is all I need 3 1.70%
Voters: 176. You may not vote on this poll

Shapeways: FOC Bruticus upgrade kit (more game-accurate)

I hope you dont feel offended, im just throwing some ideas. I thought myself on doing something like that, but i dont have enough free time (2 month old kid at home) to learn 3d design on shapeways. So im doing my custom hand made.

H.C.
No worries! I'm fine to hear peoples opinion, that's why I post! I can see you desire very high accuracy...as do I, and really I made a trade off in places to get a 'decent first version' to test and improve, with feedback of course! I only have limited measuring equipment, so parts like the waist (believe it or not) are really hard to design. But with a part in hand, I can measure and resculpt more easily. Long story short: it only gets better from here, the only other concessions to make are cost (very important) and release date!

So thanks for this...

All of those are the same mold, so this set will be compatible with the said sets.

No worries, if you change it in the actual release. Maybe I can buy your prototype one or build my own from some styrene

And even if I "design them out" I can make the part available separately...
