    Working on a custom Marvel UK Galvatron and specifically wanted an angry/shouting face because, well, it just wouldn’t be Galvatron otherwise. Found only ONE on Shapeways, ordered it and just had an email telling me they can’t fulfill it as it can’t be printed. Slightly miffed about this now - does anyone else know of a suitable Galvatron head on Shapeways or elsewhere?

    Frankly, the first one doesn't look too shabby for 15 years old, but he messed up the helmet sides a little.

    Shapeways came back to me and suggested I try one of the non-polished materials, so I've reordered in metallic plastic. Fingers crossed!

    It's a nope. It cannot be printed at all. Oh well, ordered the second head instead.
