    Actually if anyone wants to, you can message me and I can put you down for a preorder list, and when you buy it on eBay, your sets will be already made and ready for shipping. Just private message me and we can arrange the details.

    Preordering your hands and feet won’t requires immediate payment. You’ll just be put on a list of people that I would make the hands and feet for before I post them on ebay

    I can't speak for Alpha's prints, but my own prints of those feet files have been less-than-stable.

    I mean, they look fine, and shouldn't really be a huge issue for static poses, but those ball jointed ankles haven't been working very well for me.

    We assure you that our feet’s balljoints are nice and tight. They also have a piston feature that allow the balljoint to raise and lower into the foot that allow the combiner to maintain its position, and not lose balance.

    Our hipskirts also allow the combined mode to maintain its possibility and leg articulation.

    That looks pretty cool. Still holding out hope that the oversized mega add on kit actually happens.

    You know what? I find it weird that no one KOed the Jetfire/Seekers Leader mold and shrunk it down to Voyager size. Seems like it would make for a perfect CHUG Seeker.

    I am please to say that we have completed the prototyping phase of the hip skirts. Will make a little more tweaking so the upper panels cover the full hip. But other than that, it is completed. Just give us about a month to finish moving and I’ll be able to put these sets up for sale on eBay.

    You're probably better off gluing that socket in place, rather than allowing it to slip up and down. The thingiverse socket is only a separate piece to make it easier to replace broken joints, and the socket was originally designed for a friction-fit. One of my test-prints had a loose-fitting socket, and allowing it to slide around just made things wobblier, rather than more balanced.

    Like I said. We redesigned the feet so they are nice and tight. The feet themselves are designed to have the piston feature. So it can allow stability.

    As you can see here, the piston of the foot raises and lowers depending on its angle. Again it’s kinda hard to see, but you can clearly see that the balljoint has sunk back into the foot when the figure is standing straight up, compared to when it was in a pose, and the balljoint has raised, to accommodate the extra movement.
