    I'm not sure if this constitutes a news worthy item, but I've had a few requests to put the old Roadbuster kit I made on Shapways. So, here's the link.

    All the proceeds will go to a friend of mine who helped me out when I was in a bit of a jam.

    (mods feel free to move this somewhere more appropriate)

    I've been keen for your set, but have no idea how this site works. Does it ship internationally?

    any chance you can put the animated Optimus Prime axe on there as well? That would be awesome. I don't have the mold to put the roadbuster stuff on, but I've been wanting that axe since you announced it years ago and would buy it in a heartbeat.

    It all depends on the material and how much you want to spend. But in all truthfulness if you are getting a transformers scale weapon the white strong and flexible looks great. It has a fine texture, but that just makes it easier to paint.

    would get the head, but the color matching would be tough and not a great painter......

    Third arty add-on would be great.

    Hi, why don't you re-put once again the kit in production as a 3rd party item? There is enough demand I believe, and a lot of people will buy it.. ;)

    Question for NatoBot:
    Do you think the RB head would work/be a Good fit on the Marvel Crossover Humvee mold (Cap/Ironman)? Has this head been used on that mold? This head kit doesn't require the Universe 2.0 Roadbuster Head, does it?
