    Thanks for the kind words. While waiting for revised 3dprints of the shields to finish I was inspired to do a mashup with my Rivet Wars figures.

    Up-armored mechs and quad stugs escort the Griffin's Hammer artillery piece into range.

    Work on the shields. I only have photos to go from but this is good because I didn't want an exact copy of the DA-27 shield. I have no idea what's happening in the back :) 

    I'm going to try making a silicone mold of these. Then I can cast them in all kinds of colors. Fingers crossed.

    Those should be pretty easy to put in an envelope mold.

    Cripes. Well, looks like I have some window shopping to do!

    Any favorite stores or sellers to recommend?

    Because of the interest in the project I have put some Diaclone compatible shields up for sale in the Etsy shop.

    Diaclone Garnet Shield elite forces. This is the most dangerous part of the mission. The great weight of the power suits makes balancing the transport more difficult for the pilot.

    Some of the shields are still up for sale in the store - Etsy Store - Shields
