    Oh Hell Yeah!!! That is what I am talking about! Love the look of the new top in ALT mode as well. So, all in all now, what is the damage for this full set?

    That waist grill looks exactly like mine. Maybe youve seen mine, I don't know.
    Yours looks great too. I suppose I'm amazed to see someone resurrect the idea. Don't worry, I didn't patent it, so it's perfectly fine. When I made mine, I fell in love with it. I think that was about 4-5 years ago. I'm happy to see the idea has carried on.

    My favorite part of this project is the feet, I love them. I'd love to order a set of just the feet when they're ready. Everything looks excellent, as I know a lot of effort and hard work went into it all. It's simply fantastic. Keep up the good work mate.

    Thanks again to everyone for their comments. I really appreciate it and it's what keeps the ideas rolling. I have a lot of potential projects for the chugs in the pipeline, so it's exciting.
    Like SuperOptimus said, it's a lot of effort and hard work; and sometimes you don't know where it's going to end. This project is a good example. It started as hands and feet and some dream of kibble less arms. Now, after great feedback, and developing other ideas, it's a new grill (which I didn't copy from you SuperOptimus, I promise; I've not seen your version), a new roof/backpack, kibble adapters, new shins and soon it'll be smokestacks and then gas tanks for the legs (if I can get them to look good enough).
    And, my aim with all of these projects is to make the parts as easy to swap in and out as possible without damaging the figures.

    Anyway, pricing is:

    Wrist 2x 1.00=2.00
    Hand 2x 1.00=2.00

    Ankle 2x 2.00=4.00
    Foot 2x 2.00=4.00

    Shin 2x 2.00=4.00

    Gas Tank? 2x 1.00=2.00

    Grill 1x 1.00=1.00

    Flat Roof Main Section 1x 2.00=2.00
    Flat Roof Side Section 2x 1.00=2.00
    Flat Roof Pin 1x 1.00=1.00

    Smokestacks? 2x 2.00=4.00

    Kibble adapters. 2x 2.00=4.00

    Plus postage.

    If you wanted a whole set I could look at discounting and if you wanted multiple sets then I could also consider further discounting.
    I believe this pricing is competitive vs other 3d printing options on a part by part basis but appreciate it all adds up, simply because there are just a lot of parts in the project.

    Any other questions, let me know.
    I still need to tinker with some of the parts to improve the designs but they should be ready in the next week or two.

    Just for future reference, is I have the Platinum 2-pack sent to your house can you set it up there? I can paint it myself; it'd just be the whole kit installed.

    Oh it's totally fine. I certainly didn't mean to suggest that you had coppied my idea, my appologies. :)  Even if someone had copied the idea, I wouldn't mind, it's not like I ever thought of selling the idea. It's just really exciting to see good work being done continuously, and I'm happy about that, and happy to see your hard work has paid off, and it will definitely pay for itself. Congratulations man, I plan to make a purchase from you asap. :cool:

    Prime kit

    That is a nice set that you've made. I'm very interested. I'm in the process of tweaking out my classics Prime and this might be something I may have to get. Why do there have to be soooo many great Transformer buys out right now?!! My poor wallet is cryin'!

    No need to apologize SuperOptimus. I'm really glad you like the kit. Its interesting that you did the same mod a few years back. Did you print it or make it some other way?

    Hi Lord Dcast.
    Whilst it's a good idea. I don't think I'd be able to take the risk on liability with the figure :( 
    While most of the parts fit very easily. Some parts do require some pin removal and there is always a risk with that, no matter how small.
    Sorry.
    I can walk you through how to add the parts. That wouldn't be a problem. It doesn't take that long to do it. Knocking the pins out of the kibble is the hardest part but they came out without too much trouble.

    I made it using 2 of the same grill from the classics deluxe Prime, and fused them together. Looks exactly the same. :) 

    I wish to buy a few of your upgrade parts. It would be an honor.

    Well, it was a scary prospect, but all the mods are reversible.
    That's one of my main criteria when I am designing upgrade parts. No damage to the figure :) 
    I was a little worried when I removed the kibble pins, but they came out without too much trouble.
