    That is looks awesome. I have been eyeing the Toyhax backgrounds; those pieces would add depth.

    Awesome! Thanks FdT! This is an absolute insta-buy for me! Space-wise and money-wise, legends scale is perfect for playsets and the like; so glad to see something like this coming to fruition.

    I hope the orange matches the Toyworld/Magic scenery display bases, but will definitely buy regardless. What a time for Legends!

    yessssssssssssssssss!!!!!

    When that MP scaled cardboard set came out I wished it to be downsized for legends, but this is much MUCH better. This is so exciting!!!

    Edit: So reading the Facebook post, looks like it will be $120 for the legends scale set. At that price for the size, I'm guessing its 3D Printed and not a larger injection-molding operation.

    I'll still probably splurge and pick it up, but it'd be nice if some 3P company would work with them to do a proper and less expensive release...

    I don’t exactly need or want this, but I look forward to the photographs and play that this will yield.

    However, I would probably bite on Swerve’s bar.

    Now, not the whole bar, naturally, but the counter, some bar stools, the vats of Engex—be they just acrylic or, perhaps, lil lava lamps :p , and of course some lil glasses with various colors of beverage.

    Of course, I could also get MakeToys Manga Mecha Swerve and Gears, since those are still generally available.

    Still—and I find myself surprised to even say it, I think I’d like a little cybertronian tikibar :oops: 

    Then again, I should maybe get some little Energon cubes to start :D

    Eep, missed that part. Maybe less than an insta-buy then and more of an ask Santa (the girlfriend) for X-mas type thing.

    LOL. It looks cool but there are a LOT of things on my $120+ ask-for-it-as-a-gift list that would come before this. :)

    Ya... I feel like $50-$60 would be a no-brainer. $80-$90 would be "well that's painful, but this is really cool". $120 is more like "well, lets hope we don't have any other big expenses coming up.."

    I made a comment on DSA's FB page asking about parting with a 3P company to mass produce. Their response was:

    "Deep Space Arsenal If a legit company like the ones you mentioned approaches me to mass produce this set and is willing to make me a fair deal with a written contract I would 100% consider it. Until then I will continue to print my own small runs. Also, while I do 3D print my parts I use high-end, high res machines so although slow (compared to injection molding) the quality is top notch- very similar to molded parts. If anyone reads this and knows someone with a 3P company tell them to get in touch."

    If anyone has contacts at IF, DX9, etc... please please try and put them in touch with DSA.

    I think those are test colours or something they look way off

    (DX9)Optimus Prime
    (IF)Ultra Magnus
    (IF)Jetfire
    (DX9)Grimlock
    (DX9)Ironhide
    (DX9)Ratchet
    (DX9)Blurr
    (MS)Blaster-
    (IF)Drift
    (DX9)Kup
    (IF)Arcee
    (Takara)Slammer
    (Has)Bumblebee
    (IF)Dai Atlas
    Fortress Maximus-no current version (For the love of god Unique toys, make a battle ship maximus)
    (Takara)Metroplex

    Decepticons:
    (DX9)Megatron
    (DX9)Starscream
    (DX9)Skywarp
    (DX9)Thundercracker
    (IF)Shockwave
    (DX9)Soundwave
    (Has)Shadow Striker
    (Has)Shrapnel
    (Has)Bombshell
    (Tak)Kickback
    (IF)Onslaught
    (IF)Blast off
    (IF)Vortex
    (IF)Brawl
    (IF)Swindle
    (IF)Sixshot
    (IF dark version)Scorponok I'm hoping to replace with a city sized version if Unique Toys make it possible
    (Has)Trypticon

    Destructicons:
    (MFT)Galvatron
    (Henkei)Cyclonus
    (MFT)Scourge
    (DX9)Nemesis Prime
    Unicron-(Make a giant and I mean giant as in more than double the size of TR Fort max and I'm happy)
    I can never find a consistant scale to fit my preferences so I have to make Jetfire, Cyclonus' rival as a sort of giant jet battlebut I have no clue which Cyclonus will be better for scale the Henkei or the mft versions, I'm hoping it's Henkei as I don't like the mft version even though the henkei looks off to Gavly and Scourge. Magnus can go against Sixshot since they were also rivals. Does anyone have any recommendations

    Custom human figures, from JohnnyG, posted by daimchoc on Facebook.

    From the looks of it they've produced multiples. Sales possible?
