    Recently I have seen more and more nice stuff on Shapeways, but I never know all the stuff that is on there and I think it is really hard to find stuff on the site.

    So let's use this thread to list the items worth getting on shapeways. I am about to order a couple of things, but would hate to have to go back later cause I missed something. I think it takes like 6 weeks to get stuff.

    If you can, post the item, the picture (if you have it) and the link.

    Thanks all.

    A thread like that would have to be done like Optimusfan does with the Sales and deals thread. Updating the first post with links of items, from who, what series/intened figure etc. as it becomes available for purchase.

    If people post, I could come back and update the first post. Not sure series and stuff. So lets make a template of what people need to post and I could update this.

    You should probably start by posting the stuff you're gonna get, yeah? Then scour the few dedicated threads in Radicons to people like Process' stuff etc.

    Might be easier to start with a shorter list, like makers of Shapeways stuff, since most people making anything have quite a few items up for sale.

    As well as Process and myself, offhand I can think of Treadshot A1, Venksta, Delta Star and Cashanova, but I'm sure there are more.

    This is a good idea. I first heard of shapeways thourgh cashanova. I believe we should all have a way of knowing who is selling stuff on there and be able to jump right to thier page. At shapeways, it seems you have to be specifically looking for something.

    I'm all for ths. All you guys have some pretty cool stuff i wanna buy.

    What's Shapeways? I've never heard of it. A google search brought up...I don't know what.

    I chanced upon Shapeways when I joined the forum recently. Coincidentally, I was searching the Shapeways site and got a little lost. A list like this will definitely help.

    I got half of my first shapeways order yesterday, Process' WFC Megatron gun mount for Optimus.
    The other half is the Superion chest filler x2 But they were different material, so didn't ship together. At least that's what I am hoping.

    Shapeways is a site where people can upload 3d models and then get them printed into real objects and make them available for sale - it's something a lot of the customisers on here are using to make upgrade parts for TFs.

    Not to toot my own horn but I do have some G1 inspired weapons for our modern updated Classics / Universe / Generations figures. ;)

    Well, most of the good stuff we'd be likely to want, anyway. There is a lot of good stuff made by non-Radicons, it's just not TF-related (oddly enough). ;) 

    Not tooting at all. I knew my list hadn't included everyone... :p

    I'd recommend each of you having your own thread in the Commissioner's Listing and Feedback forum. This way, we won't have one dump thread to have to search through.
