    I just got the prototype of a cobra casseticon that I've been working on from Shapeways. I built him in Google Sketchup. I don't have a name for him yet, but I'm leaning towards "Hypno" or something like that.
    I'm going to redo most of his hinges and tweak a few of his tolerances to make everything sit together a little better. The sprocket holes need to be a little smaller too. I should have made them 5mm. I just wasn't thinking there. Apologies to anyone who's bugged by the one fake hole. It just had to be.
    He fits nicely inside MP Soundwave's chest, and even works with the advancing mechanism. Unfortunately, he's a hair big for G1 SW (but so are all of the MP tapes, so he's in good company.)
    Overall, I'm pretty happy with him. What do you guys think? Is this something that you'd like in your collection?

    Thank you both! I'm glad you like it. There's so much I want to improve, I was a little nervous.
    Encline- Your stuff is always an inspiration to me!

    Ingenious how you use the tape to be the snake's cowl. Will you be adding detail?

    I really want to like this, and I do. I think you can do better though, add some more details, maybe rework it a little, let's get a full hole for the right side of the cassette. Keep it up, I'll be checking out your stuff from now on.

    As an homage to the Beast Wars character, who's beast mode was part cobra, this can be Generation 1 Quickstrike.
