    thanks to robotkingdom for the thing:

    Here we received some photos of a new third party item named ML-AO-001. From the picture you can clearly see that this item is a add on part for transforming your TFP Ratchet into another form.

    Hey, it's the parts Wheeljack (from the radicons section, same guy who made the iGear Coneheads) made for his swerve.

    Thanks for looking out fellas! :)  these guys didn't rip me off but I'm also not the 3rd party. They might produce this kit if there's enough interest, and it's a potential tester for the inferno upgrade. I figured add ons would look better if they're factory made and be cheaper if enough people wanted them.
    Basically, if you're interested let them know. :)

    Interesting... I'd need another Prime Ratchet for this... to which I've not seen one recently... =.

    A factory made version would be nice because it'd be pre-painted... something I'm sure non-customizing folks would love.

    I like the idea of high end customizers turning their designs over to friendly third party manufacturers for mass productions. I hope the designer gets a couple bucks and some credit on the packaging.

    So is this just what Third Parties do now? Rip off shapeways stuff?

    So, wait, are you in contact with them?

    Yeah he is. Not a rip off of shapeways stuff, something that was created in shapeways and brought to the attention of a third party to create the upgrade kit. :)
