    Yes sir. I do understand the 3rd party deal, though there have been quite a number of interested individual on using bigger weapons for Fortis and Bovis, like those shotguns from the Colossus set. It doesn't have to be exactly like them, but another option would definitely be welcome. Thank you for at least checking my post. ;) 


    And who says that fakebusker83 doesn't respond to questions??? ;)

    Woah, has this sentiment been going around? I'd hate to have a reputation like that.

    But I must confess, I get very focused on work sometimes and it IS very hard to pull away to answer queries or comments. And what's worse is having to think of new, polite ways to say 'no' to requests and put people down nicely.

    As it were, I'm really want to concentrate on this leviathan of a project so I'm putting my foot down and stopping all requests, until I got it at least to a promising stage. Daim, there are plenty of skilled weapon modellers around you could seek them out. I'm sure at least one of them have them third party predacons to reference from.

    well, if rodimus is getting a retool of the springer mold, why not tumbler? it'd even fit him better I think, cybertronian car and all.

    Best of luck my friend. :) 

    I might still toss out a stray idea or two but like everything I never expect anything of it so feel free to ignore me.

    I look forward to seeing what you're working on. :D

    just to be sure, I wasn't requesting, just tossing the idea out, in case it gave you an idea, or someone else at zenith forge could tinker with it, just was meant as an idea, not even a real suggestion... :eek: 


    sorry though if it ended up being that though... if it is, then I can delete the posts.

    :eek:

    Hey, don't over-think it :) 
    There is merit to your suggestion and I'm sure it will make a swell conversion kit. I see you've put the idea up on another thread and I hope someone will pick it up and roll with it.

    It's fun and lots of options with it. Still working on it and needs to still be painted. ;) 

    Oh, and the shoulder fixes are awesome. Great work from FB83. ;)

    So...for those who have seen Faceoff, this is a little retool I did. Meet Faceoff's little cousin, ah...Sawoff.

    The intention of this was to create a 'carbine' version with a shorter barrel, reduced scope, no front handle and new head so as to knock a few bucks off the price. And he has clawed pincers instead of hands.

    I think I can reduce its price by as much as $6.

    What do you think? Is this be a good idea?

    YES HE IS A SHOOTER WITH NO DEPTH PERCEPTION. I LIKE IT IT'S FUNNY.

    so i finally got my Trivia in half wsf and half bsf.
    but i think i got screwed with the printing.

    the figure itself is wonderful the design, engineering, and look are AMAZING

    but he's a floppy mess. iv already put 3 coats of superglue on the balljoints but some like his feet wrist and elbow just seem like the balls are a bit too small.

    I'm hoping that paint will add that extra layer i need. this pic was taken before cleaning him up so he had some power left over and was able to stand. its kinda hard to get him to now.

    but overall i am so happy i finally got him as i love the character and this design. plus.. i tried modeling my own, got it printed and it wad a mess haha. no where near as good as this one.

    so thumbs up to you ariel lemon!

    Hi Javaco,

    Were the WSF parts polished? Sorry to hear of your loose joints. You can try adding a little glue on the sockets too to make them tighter. And yes, paint will help as well.

    That being said, the print looks sharp! I think when all is fixed and painted up he'll look amazing!

    Hey Ariel,

    What's your stand on doing a Galaxy Force Leobreaker hand for the arm/claw mode on Leobreaker and his dark cousin?
