    Thanks it was a good one!

    It (Wallet Crusher) will be printed in this material:
    Poly Jet White: 3D Printing & Rapid Prototyping

    It is as fine of definition and durability as any regular mass production toy.

    It's not like that I promise. This kit is a something I wanted to do to shore up the shortcomings
    of a toy I really like. Tom got on board and we hammered it out. This kit is mine and Tom's
    way of sharing the "wealth" so to speak when it comes to what modern customization can do
    with some money and patience.

    Your hand made customs are like mine, a little piece of my heart goes into that work.
    I look on the work I have done over the years. And think about how it pleases me that
    I could pollish some decent product into being some of the real gems of my collection.

    As promised here is the Creative Marketplace thread for this kit:

    Glad to hear you had a good birthday!

    I'm still interested, i think i'll go for the standard shapeways version, then paint and assemble it myself, I just need to put my payment details on shapeways, but since my bank card is in the custody of my mother (to stop me from going on retail therapy sprees :p ), i'm not sure when that will happen. :p 

    Just one Q: Which material is the best from Shapeways for durability? Exactly how fragile would it be made entirely from FUD? (I don't want it to break while handling it/putting it together)

    The current prototype is made in the FUD material. While not super fragile it does need a light touch when assembling.

    What kind of finish/quality are we looking at for the middle grade? Never ordered off shapeways, and never liked the grainy look it has.

    Is this scaled only for the voyager Megatron?

    This would be awesome for the deluxe FE Megatron, since the FE version doesn't have the blades, nor the AM version have a cannon other than the Micron.

    It was designed to fit the voyager, any smaller and the parts would be too fragile, or might not print at all.


    It would also seem that I can't post in radicons, I have no idea whats going but sorry about the broken threads.
