yes its on there now: Strika head for Universe Onslaught by AutobotQuaternion on Shapeways
So, @Quaternion now that...Power of the Primes Slash...is out...and...about...I was wondering if you'd consider a weapons kit for her...as well as...a new alt mode head...all would be inspired by...(Fans Project Lost Exo-Realm LER-05 COMERA) & (Fans Project Lost Exo-Realm LER-06 ECHARA) respectively...if you wanted to...and...had enough interest...you might even offer the headsculpts of the figures...but...the alt mode head...allowing for conversion to a Pachycephalosaurus...and...giving Slash a sister (maybe Slam)...should be enough...oh also noticed the feet are slightly different...hopefully if there'd be interest...you'd consider...(pics below...shared from Kuma Style website...depict the Pachycephalosaurus alt mode...and...the weapons that come with the figure)...
This is a fantastic idea. I love love love Slash but I never cared for the overly-sexualized Lost exo bot designs (or the prices for that matter). I am being heavily delayed by life at the moment, but I am very excited by this idea. It is at the top of my list of projects i want to do.
Awesome...I'm glad the idea...is to your liking...and...I truly understand that life is has your focus...cannot wait to see...what you are...able to do with this though...when the timing is right...
Slash / Slash sister (Slam) weapons renders:
Slash / Slam Weapon test prints.
Yeah that last one is a bfg. Slash is bad ass enough for dual wielding 2 of those, IMO.
So Slash and Sister Slam will have a ton of weapons but basically no weapon storage yet in alt mode. Not sure how to deal with that yet. I might be able to craft like some kind of crazy weapons turret / rack thing for her dino mode back in place of a prime master sitting there. But I havent thought that far ahead what it would look like.
Muahahahaaa...a REASON to buy more Slash figures...
dammit I forgot the loop on the kunai before. fixed.
Yup. Bought another today off of ebay for $11 shipped. Amazon had it for like 25 or something insane and I'm too lazy to go hunting at brick and mortar
Awesomely done Q...
test print of the Pachycephalosaurus head. Tucks in in alt mode too just fine too. Requires pin removal and reinsertion.
still messing with the proportions a bit to make it a little taller more like a Pachycephalosaurus
better Pachycephalosaurus head proportions, i think. transforms fine still
working on a Slam head that is somewhat inspired by Echara's ninja look but has more dino cues, that is teeth.
only problem is that removing the existing head is a real pain. there is a pin in the chest that would need the soldering iron treatment I believe to get it out.
ultimately I might just do a repaint instead of the head replacement and call it a day. if anyone haws ever tried taking her head off, let me know.
yes! slam is needed! *adds to mental wishlist*
i'd ask for a parasaurolophus head to homage the pcc dinobot one, but the body clearance is an obvious issue.....
Love Slam, but what about homaging one of the smaller pachycephalosaurs, such as the stygimoloch? Would be better scaled, as the Pachycephalosaurus would have to be a small deluxe. Not that you'd want to rework the mold, but just an idea. There could be a series of heads for smaller dinos, like the Oviraptor, Dilophosaurus
An army of dino fembots! Sweet! I just wish the robot head was easier to remove. I got it part of the way out by hammering a punch into one side but i need a longer punch. Trying to pull from the other side after that started to stress the plastic and I think the pin is too long for the soldering iron trick to not just met the hell out of it.
But if you are ok with all sisters to have the same bot head, then it's not a problem
yay! i'm perfectly okay with them having the same head!
The other day a randomly stumbled upon Spacewarp: Spacewarp - Transformers Wiki
I really like her story and I want to do a version of her. I do not want to use Armada Jetfire for this. Any suggestions?
The most obvious one which is pretty easy to do is TR Astrotrain. Do a different head, extend the wings (they have ports on them that will let me extend the wings without modification), and then the Transwarp Blaster is just supposed to be the minicon space team, but I might just make a blaster to look like the Transwarp Blaster, but bigger than the minicon team's combined form, perhaps.
In other news, expect my Slash/Slam weapon set and dino head to go up on Shapeways soon. I'm just waiting for my 2nd Slash to come in the mail so I can paint her up and show her with all the weapons.
Also, I made a weapon rack for the dinobots since they had so many weapons. It's big and way too pricey for Shapeways but I could put in on Thingiverse if there are those interested.
here is a render of Spacewarp's head, with and without mask.
Spacewarp from TR astrotrain with new head, wing attachments, and thrusters that attach to wings and can be used as guns. I'm not gonna redo the Transwarp blaster since I like it fine with the Minicon space team. Now I just need to find a decent minicon to be Foldspace for her since I don't have a Commetor and he was like $19 on ebay. I'm not paying that much for a minicon.
also, I did a version with a cy-gar as mentioned in her tfwiki bio.
Pretty sweet...I'd probably just toss...her TFCC Minicon self...in as Foldspace.../...the Transwarp blaster...gotta find the Takara Astrotrain tooo...but...this is on my list ...
