    My FB friend LongHaul hooked me up with Calloway's Shapeways Lockdown set. I painted it up and added it to my Lockdown! Later I might have to add some green to the chainsaw as seen in the linked thread, along with painting the figure some...

    I forgot about this! And I was the one that got him to make it attach like an extension of his arm, too, and I still never got it!

    Came out great... what material was it originally? WSF, Polished, others?

    The only other thing I wish that kit had was an IDW-styled head for Lockdown.

    I might get this, but I need to know if it was hard to get the hands removed? I have never removed pins in my life, & I don't have any on hand at the moment.

    Thanks guys! I got the set second hand, but I'm pretty sure it's WSF. That's the only material I've ordered through Shapeways so far and the set was just like it...

    I'm not very good at removing pins. I've only used a hammer and nail, including this time. I should try and get a pin punch sometime...
    The weapon attachment "hand" came out pretty easily. I got it started with the hammer and nail then was able to pull it out with pliers.
    The regular hand was harder. I accidentally bent one of the plastic "wrist" pieces. I ended up bending the other piece, too, and just pulling out the pin. The I bended them back to normal with my pliers. I was fortunate they didn't break and I don't recommend trying that...
    Also, the Shapeways hand didn't fit right at first. I had to do quite a bit of cutting away of the base by the pin hole. Before that, the holes wouldn't line up...

    As mine is right now, the arm doesn't really fit even with none of the attachments on it. The wheel on that side is propped up. Next time I work on him I'm going to see if I can shave away at that piece to get the car to rest on all four tires.
    Also, it's really hard to get the piece to bend at the pin for transforming. I think I'll probably try some cutting and shaving next time to get make that easier to move...
