    "Feuer Frei!" Scatter Blaster for DOTM Megatron
    Update Feb 24, 2012


    [​IMG]

    Since Dark of the Moon came out and fans realised that none of the Megatron toys come
    with that awesome looking fusion shotgun, the number of requests for it is amazing.
    After a long, long wait, it is done!

    [​IMG]

    Made to be as movie accurate as possible, I had to alter some aspects to allow it to be
    used with standard figures. The main challenge is to incorporate the original curved
    handle design into a 5mm peg. I've also received requests to modify the handle to allow
    an unmodded Megatron to hold it.

    Now, unfortunately the peg on the handle is too loose to fit on the slot inside Megatron's
    hand. I've edited the model so subsequent orders will have a thicker peg. It's thicker to
    the point of overcompensation, so if it's too tight, use a blade to shave down the peg.

    For those who have already ordered the scatter blaster, you can try thickening the peg
    with super glue. Didn't really work out for me, but you might have better luck. If there's
    any consolation, the blaster fits his forearm peg really well!

    Edit: After about 5 coats of careful super glue application, hey! the peg worked perfectly! Vary to taste.

    There are 2 auxiliary pegs midway down its length that you can use to store the blaster
    on Megatron's back or alt mode.

    Measuring about 9.6 cm long, it fits in that comfortable size that works with both voyager
    and leader figures. Although if you feel that this version is too small for leaders, I've
    included an enlarged variant. Link is below.

    Comments and critique appreciated!

    You can order the scatter blaster here at
    "Feuer Frei!" scatter blaster on Shapeways.

    You can order the larger one at
    "Feuer Frei!" scatter blaster (13 cm) on Shapeways.

    I would recommend printing this in Strong Flexible, as I think the details shown up well
    enough in this material.

    Thats pretty interesting. Love the design, not sure if it fits the character. But it might be cool for someone like classics Kup.

    that is amazing, just what the doctor ordered man, thank you. i'll be ordering one as soon as im not broke.

    2 questions though: 1, are ye going to botcon? 2, if so then have ye considered printing a big honkin pile of your pieces and selling them at the show?

    Is that the small or the large version that he's holding? I don't have the DOTM voyager to compare. :(

    Awesome, then the big one should be exactly the right size. Shapeways still has that "only orders over $25" rule, right?

    Since the handle is supposed to work with any 5 mm holes, it should be able to be held be Classics figures, right?
