    I had already cut up a Nightbeat to make it so I could glue in a Titanmaster port from one of the vehicles when I was talking to @Weirdwolf. He said he'd like to put the Takara GoShooter head on his million publishing GoShooter, but didn't want to take a dremel to a $100 toy. That got me to thinking. I'll design an adapter to put a port on that mold. Here's the problem. The neck hole is too narrow. There is a thin wall limit on Shapeways and anything thick enough to pass, would be too thick to allow a head to fit in. So I did the best I could. It turned out pretty good as best I can tell. Mine works good, but only for Nightbeat. I can put in Loudmouth, but I have to turn him sideways. There isn't enough room in there to make the universal flexible clip all the Titans Returns deluxes have. So I designed it to fit Nightbeat. Other guys won't fit, and if I widen the hole, Nightbeat will fit too loosely. Anyway, here's the pics. You can find the part by searching "Detective Adapter" on Shapeways. 14247795_10208504903633145_560849167_o.jpg 14303806_10208504903793149_1132932041_o.jpg 14247640_10208504903593144_81818090_o.jpg 14273333_10208504903913152_1460881209_o.jpg 14285331_10208504903713147_359758682_o.jpg

    Äs did I. Hence why the pics are of GoShooter. This is a good alternative for those that don't want to cut up the toy.

    Yeah I currently had to get two of them. 1 for my Nightbeat cause like tigatron2002 I got the Beelzeboss kit and the way I originally did it wouldn't work anymore. I also bought a Goshooter from a guy in Singapore.

    I'm painting the headmaster that's why he's not there

    I just got two of the revised adaptors, printed in the untested BHDA. They're a bit tight, but no breakage so far!

    Got the adapter printed in black strong flexible material, worked very well per the instructions for my Generations Go Shooter with the Takara Legends Go Shooter head, thank you so much Insane Galvatron! The Generations Nightbeat on the right uses a neck socket cut from TR Nightbeat's mini vehicle to accommodate the Takara Legends Nightbeat head - I wish I had waited until I could have gotten your adapter, would have been much easier and cleaner!

    Scratch that! One of them broke. It was worth testing, but I don't recommend it. I'll order a pair in strong flexible. The adapter is so minimally visible that the graininess won't bother me too much.

    I joined the group after seeing your post. He is out sadly. I hope he gets more.

    Thanks for the feedback. I'll remove that as an option so no one else gets one and has it break.

    They came with the legends scale 3rd party Iron Factory Sonictech (Blaster) set (also comes with their version of Ramhorn/Steeljaw). There was a bunch of guns in that set that can combine into some sort of drone. It doesn't resemble the g1 guns for Nightbeat and Go Shooter 100% but I think they're close enough.

    I also made a G1 Nightbeat inspired gun, but with a seat for the Titanmaster in car mode.

    Yup, I had a little problem giving them their G1 guns, because of the short pegs. Had to wrap some tape around the pegs to give a firm grip. Those guns of your's look quite fitting.
