    That sounds fantastic! There are SO many Beast Modes that never got any love. It'd be great to see some unusual animals made into Transformers.

    Hey man, have you considered selling the files for this? It's probably too big and complicated to successfully sell on shapeways, but people would probably pay $10-15 just for the file to print themselves a copy. Maybe more, just a suggestion, but I know I would

    This is awesome, man! Gives me a Beast Wars II/Neo vibe. What program did you use to model?

    Damn! That's gorgeous. Wonderfully done! I know many have asked about purchasing copies and your future plans for making more (I highly recommend keeping it up!), but one possibility I haven't seen mentioned might be to create molds or vacuforms after getting one to the size you want. Casting afterward would take less time and cost less for mass production. Something like a Patreon for funding development of new ideas, and then crowdfunding for mass runs might be a viable option for someone of your skill. I know I certainly am trying to make my own custom figures from other figures, but I know I have a lot of ideas with no figure close to build off from... And I'm sure others feel likewise. If you ever do decide to go into business making custom ones or mass-produced original third party ones like this, you'll have an investor in me and I'm sure quite a few others here.

    Thanks again to everyone else that came here and said more nice things!

    The rubberized parts in the joints is definitely an idea worth considering, I dont know if my printer is capable of using filaments like "ninjaflex", but that is something I will consider in the future when making changes to buckshot

    Autodesk's 3D Studio Max. Probably would've been easier if I had used a software meant for engineering like autocad or fusion360 but I managed. Everything I did here could easily be done in free software, like blender, as well.

    And for the sloth lovers here I did sketch up a design for a sloth-former! I call him SlowThrottle!

    Amazing! I love how the arms are hanging on him like there’s another sloth on him.

    I love your deer design, and that sloth needs to be a thing! That said, it pains me to point out that female deer typically don't have antlers.

    May I remind you that beast wars inferno is male despite having the ant mode of a female. Waspinator is the same as well.

    Awesome! Get her primed and painted. It's more of a carbot MP in terms of parts count (no deluxe has all of its joints articulated) than a deluxe. I get an Avatar vibe from her. She can flip her bow around to use like a Klingon Bat'leth.

    Digger's right, I decided it would be sort of weird for alien robots to conform to one gender of an alternate mode that matches their own, even though the other gender can defend itself better. If Buckshot saw two deer and one had antlers when she was scanning for an alt mode, she'd go with the one that already came with weapons. Gender is probably not something she'd even consider.

    Not something I had considered before but I'll keep it in mind

    Dude, you've had me brainstorming all day... I've got so many ideas for unconventional beast modes... would you happen to have a Deviantart account? I think tour talents would be greatly appreciated there.
