    There are not enough figures for female transformers, IMO. So I decided (based on some gentle nudging from BScorpinok75 and Stormvapor) to design some heads and accessories that could potentially help people make more female Transformer customs.

    Shapeways store: Quaternion's Creations by AutobotQuaternion - Shapeways Shops

    Not all of these are on Shapeways yet but I am adding more all the time. Check back frequently for updates! And please feel free to make requests!

    Also, please let everyone know if you have an an idea of how you would like use these heads / accessories in your own customs (e.g., what existing figures would you put these on?). Then I can deal with pegs sizes and ball joints and such. Adapting my current heads/accessories on Shapeways to different bodies is often pretty simple for me.


    HEADS
    Models so far: G1 Lancer, G1 Moonracer, G1 Firestar, IDW Lancer, G1 Elita One, IDW Greenlight, G1 Greenlight, Vibes, Esmeral, Small Foot (Gobots), IDW Strika, Slipstream, Crasher (Gobots), Spay-C (Gobots), Snoop (Gobots), Maxima, IDW Roadmaster, Strika (Beast Machines-ish), Ripclaw, Lyzack, Vamp (Gobots), Nancy, Alana, IDW Victorion, Twirl, G1 Chromia, IDW Elita 1, Mistress of Flame, Ariel, Override, Airachnid, Roulette

    NOTE: Several of these currently use the same female face model. This is just for demonstration purposes. I'm planning on making them have different faces in the future.

    ACCESSORIES
    Firestar's gun from Legends and a stylized fire axe for her.

    Maxima's Blaster and Side Arms

    Combiner Wars Car Chest plates:
    G1 Greenlight, G1 Moonracer, IDW Moonracer
    chestplate1.png chestplate3.png chestplate2.png

    Combiner Wars Onslaught/Pyra Magna chest plates
    Firestar, Strika

    Mistress of Flame Hammer (and IDW Elita One head and chestplate)

    Feedback and future suggestions for heads or accessories are welcome!

    Suggestion: Slipstream head for Prime (RID) Voyager Starscream.

    Does it matter if she has a Prime-looking face?

    Nah. Firestar on Pyra Magna/Hot Spot. We need more voyager fembots. :p 

    Heads look interesting. If I had to pick what molds I'd choose for them it would be the following:
    Elita: Generations Arcee, Generations Drift.
    Moonracer: TF: Prime Knockout or Classics Sideswipe
    Firestar: Generations Sergeant Kup
    Lancer: TF: Prime Starscream, Cybertron Hotshot (car version), TF: Prime Wheeljack.

    I don't know what molds Moonracer, Lancer and Greenlight I'd use with these heads, but I'll be glad to buy them once I figure that out. For Firestar though, I'm also one who has been wanting a head to use with the Generations deluxe Swerve figure.

    Thanks but the credit for the idea of making a bunch of fembot heads goes to BScorpinok75 and Stormvapor. They suggested that there was a niche to be filled there.

    Sweet, they look really cool!

    About War Within Vibes for either Generations Arcee or Reveal the Shield Jazz?

    So awesome to see someone finally hear the cries of those that love the fembots/cons like myself and @Stormvapor

    The Pax mold could work because one could possibly swap out ghe chest piece for a custom piece bearing her G1 chest design...GDO Swerve works as its a near ringer for her TF Legends appearance...in alt mode...

    300px-Generations_china_import_deluxe_swerve.jpg 472.jpg

    Moonracer looks to be able to be customized by using either Prime Knockout for a near IDW look...or...Titan Returns Wheelie for a more G1 look...IDW Lancer (see below) looks to have blades on her back so perhaps a helicopter would suit her...if possible one that coukd have a chest plate customized ...IDW Greenlight (see below) looks to have two wheels on each leg...and...she looks a bit boxy...maybe some sort of truck...NO idea for either in a G1 style...E1 could be made from almost any Blurr...or...Blurr retool...as could Override...

    I am very, VERY interested. And not in a creepy way. At least not yet...

    If this goes up on Shapeways, I intend to purchase. I just hope that it's done in the style of a two piece head with the eyes coming through from the back half. That makes it a lot easier to paint the eyes.

    Yeah, these would be great, not just for intended characters, but OCs as well.

    Good idea! I will work on that.

    Here is another idea. How about a 3 piece head? So it would be helmet, face, and eyes. That way the face is easier to paint. Having the face separate makes it easier to paint for me, but I'm not the greatest painter in the first place.

    Not perfect perhaps...though perfect would be those characters having molds developed specifically with them in mind...but...if you possess the above three molds...then workable customs of the Tlalakan Alana, Junkion Nancy & Dreamwave Vibes...

    That would be the awesome...makes sense...

    2016-09-13 01.37.50.jpg

    I imagine more work would be needed to get a decent IDW Moonracer from Knockout...but...the digibash shows its not impossible...would need more feminine bits here & there...

    2016-09-13 01.41.41.jpg

    Titans Returns Wheelie doesn't look half bad as G1 Moonracer...toss in a peas hooter & slingshot...can the forearms be replaced on this mold...???...

    2016-09-13 10.38.05.jpg 2016-09-13 10.38.33.jpg 2016-09-13 10.40.51.jpg

    As previously stated...either the Prime Kup mold via Ironhide...or...the Generations Kup mold via GDO Swerve...could serve as good jump-off points for Firestar...

    2016-09-13 10.53.47.jpg

    For those that "upgrade" the Blurr in their collections...or...just have an extra Blurr lying about...a Velocity head could be a start for customization of the Camien with an Earth mode...

    2016-09-13 11.02.21.jpg

    If you've the Calvin Johnson redeco of the Thrilling 30 Megatron...but...crave more femcon...Ywirl would be the perfect candidate from this figure...

    2016-09-13 10.55.35.jpg

    And...doesn't current comic Elita-One look like she has a lot in common with the on-screen design of RID15 Sideswipe...makes me think she could be customized from his RID15 toy...

    Great ideas! I've got all of those molds except for the cyberverse ironhide one. When I get around to doing some test prints I can try some of these out.

    I think that Greenlight head would look cool on the generations Hoist mold. I dunno tends to like them with more junk in the trunk. Your doing great work though! I gotta challenge for you if your interested. Can you pull of a fem with a faceplate?
    Maybe something similar to a princess in disguise. Not necessarily the same just an idea.
