Over the past month or so I've really gotten into the Diaclone reboot with my kids. We love how the pieces come together to form different configurations. Because of this I immediately saw some potential for making custom pieces or whole toys that would interact with the real parts. So I'm starting this thread to document some of the experiments and things that I come up with. Most of it'll be sketches, 3D models and then 3D prints. Right now I'm limited to PLA prints but might send some off to Shapeways or upgrade to an SLA printer. I hope folks find some of this interesting. Here's the first piece I've done. I posted this in the Diaclone Reboot thread but didn't want to clog that up with more stuff. It's a transport that accepts the mech suit "pods" and can transport them. Right now that's the thing that excites me. Creating a vehicle that'll carry two or four of those in some sky crane type configuration. This is a first pass sort of experiment. I hadn't done a 3d print in a while so I'm mostly trying to figure out the fitment of the print and diaclone parts. I am getting a longer print bed so once that comes in I'll try the 4 mech transport and be able to try more configurations. Right now this one is too stubby for my liking but I dig the Space 1999 Eagle vibe and might keep some of that. I also found a pic of a ground transport for the pods that looks like a proto takara never when through with.
