    Another idea is using the helicopters as something like booster rockets on their backside.

    You say it doesn't fit Optimus, but can I see an example anyway? Just to see why it doesn't work.

    Now all that's needed is a male-to-female port extender with a 0-45-90-degree ratchet joint in the middle.

    To allow combiner figures to be attached at different angles. You could even attach two or more in a line if you needed a figure to be spaced further away due to kibble issues.

    So it looks to me that it is tight on the little part that extends out into the port? Or is it just a little too snug around the box. Both are easy fixes. I can tweak it a little this afternoon and update the file. If you can let me know specifically where the tight spots are. Anything else I should change on the file to help it fit a little better?

    I had no specific plans for this, it came up as a specific request in one of my other backpack threads. I hope somebody can have fun with it. I will try to whip up another one that extends them vertically from the shoulder joint rather than horizontally once I get feedback on how to adjust the grip.

    While they do connect, I mention it not working well because they have to be connected at strange angles. This is the best that I could do to get something dynamic[​IMG]

    The part that extends into the port is perfect, slides in and out just fine. It's the boxes (What holds the combiner connectors on the arms) that are to snug. Currently, Sunstreaker is stuck.
    I can't notice anything else that might need to be changed. maybe as Farsryder said:
    It could be fun to connect them up and down too. I have no clue if that would fit, but I've got the plastic to test it!

    Oh, and once I'm a bit more awake, I fully plan on getting the printer up, and printing that Swoop backpack piece you made for Volcanicus along with another two of these ports to make my Asura combiner.

    Awesome, I will extend the walls of the box slightly and upload a new version of it to thingiverse. The dimensions for the box are the same on my swoop pack. So until I get it expanded it will be pretty snug as well.

    Could the combiner peg be changed to be more like a standard combiner peg, so that it could be inserted at either orientation?

    Just uploaded this version to thingiverse. It should be able to be inserted either horizontally or vertically.

    Definitely tempted by this. I'm not an expert on 3D modelling/printing, but would it be possible to get a file with two of them side by side so you can print two at once?
