Nope. WSF and Stainless Steel.
Well, I'll be damn...
Nobody else has said anything, what you got on how to fix it?
There's a diagram somewhere showing the steps on how to fix it....where, I don't know...I think maybe in the thread dedicated to Hercules fixes?
Ah, I'd forgotten about that thread. I barely even lurk on this site anymore. Okay, I'll go digging around for that. Thanks.
I actually just took him apart or at least to where I could get the knee piece out, then I used some thin styrene to make some shims. After a test fit, I think I painted and glued them onto the knee and reassembled him. Was much tighter sfter this fix!
Cool, sounds easy enough. Now, if only I can find the bugger, he's still packed up in one of 10 boxes of TFs, all clearly labeled as Box 1 of 10, rather than useful stuff like, Seekers, Combiners, and Misc Decepticons.
And they're not all in the same box either.
I've got to finish reading thru the thread, fast. I just got an email from Shapeways offering $15 off $100+ orders, which would mean I would definitely orderget the Full Monty set and the hip replacements, even though I should really still wait a couple more weeks.
I've still got 25 pages to read though.
I'd read in reverse if I was you...
I'm all caught up!
I am ordering the Full Monty and Cab Covers right now, in Polished. Gonna hold off on the hips, I haven't messed with Heavy Labor in a long time, but I don't remember his hips being too terribly loose, and I can always order them later if I need them.
And, not only do I get the $15 off from Shapeways, but I also appear to have $11 in store credit.
Due to leave SW on Nov 5, that's a long wait.
Holy crap, I love how you painted this! Are you still offering your services as a painter? cuz I am very interested in that. Otherwise, I'll be copying your paint deco, it is amazing.
Since TFC is "reissuing" the rage forearms with sixgun do you think you could make rage shoulder alternatives for people that missed out on the rage upgrade?
Sorry, I haven't been keeping up. When did they say they were reissuing the RoH kits???
Based on the context of your post, I think you meant to type "isn't"?
Their upcoming "sixgun" set for metroplex reuses some of the parts from ROH including the hands, forearms, and rifle tips. However it does NOT include the shoulder parts for herc, which is why I am asking if he can make a alternative pair.
Buying sixgun and shapeways shoulders would probably be cheaper than getting the ROH set on ebay at the moment.
There are still ROH sets over at taobao.com.
when I ordered this kit last week, Shapeways told me it would ship Nov 5. It shipped this morning, just a little bit ahead of schedule, it seems.
Of course, UPS Ground takes a week to get to me, but still, I have Hercules upgrade parts next week. Yay!
Nice! Keep us posted...
It arrived, a day early even!
Okay, now, it's been about a year or so since i last got something from shapeways (and it's been months since I even touched the last things i got from SW), have they changed their WSF plastic? cuz this stuff feels different than I remember. It feels lighter, but the polished finish is better than I remember. It's so uniform and smooth, I remember past items having a side that didn't feel like it got polished well.
Anyway, I'm really excited about it, it looks fantastic, and I'm excited to start working on it. Except now I've got to hunt down some paint. Bugger. :/
At least yours looks like they got everything right in their shipment? When I ordered mine, they sent me 2 of the same side on a few things or missing both pairs or like Long Hauls' wheels, they sent me 3 wide and 1 narrow... Got it all worked out though. Paint shouldn't be hard to find. Do you have Echo's paint match video? I need to repaint mine and use his guide this time!
Yeah, we swapped...
Yep and SW's worked out the problems on the other crap
