    * Updated 2/16/2017 : thread cleanup & addition update.

    I love my TR PMOP....but a few things bug me about him:


    - The hollow arms
    - His inability to wield 5mm peg weapons
    - His lame copy cat Magnus guns

    So, I designed an arm upgrade set and a new rifle set, both in 2 variants

    My TR PMOP Arm Uprgade Set A is a set of arm fillers which feature a 5mm peghole 'hand', which fits into the existing articulated hand. This set enables TR PMOP to finally wield weapons with a 5mm peg weapon. As of January 19th, 2017 : final version which guarantees a perfect fit in any of the Strong Flexible Polished materials.

    The TR PMOP Arm Uprgade Set B is the same as above mentioned Arm Upgrade Set A, but WITHOUT the 5mm hands.

    The TR PMOP Rifle Set A is a set of 2 rifles which feature long 5mm pegs and it is specifically designed for the Hasbro TR PMOP, with details to match the TR aesthetics. This set works with TR PMOP Arm Upgrade Set A, or any other Transformerw with 5mm peghole hands.

    The TR PMOP Rifle Set B is the same as above mentioned set, but with the SAME handles as the stock guns which came with Titans Return Powermaster Optimus Prime. Therefor, this set only works with that PMOP and/or CW Ultra Magnus.

    * Added pic of truckmode with the Arm Upgrade Set and Rifle Set in startpost. As you can see, the arm fillers do not hinder transformation.

    Ok, update 22 Dec 2016 : Based upon in-person experience with the first prints, adjustments were made to the arm fillers, for a perfect fit and a slightly deeper 5mm peg hole 'hand'.
    This version is now designated TR PMOP Arm Upgrade Set A.

    I realized there might be people who just want arm fillers, but without the 5mm peghole 'hand', so I simply derived this from TR PMOP Arm Upgrade Set A, now designated as TR Arm Upgrade Set B.

    Links to these items in the startpost.

    * btw, Shapeways has a 20% discount code until January 1st ; FAREWELL2016

    This is an excellent idea! I especially like that chunky design you did for the guns.

    I hope to put on a foundation of varnish onto them tonight. Weather has been crap here today, so trying to spray paint them black now would not be great idea.

    So by tomorrow the varnish should have cured onto the porous wfsp material...and then hopefully, the weather will be better for spraypainting.

    Btw, if anyone wants these guns to be available in other wsf colors or materials, just ask me, then i'll enable the option in my shapeways.

    I like the arm fillers. But the weapons look like grenade launchers instead of laser rifles.

    Well, the rifles are - just like the Hasbro Pmop - a modern interpretation. The one thing about the rifles which I did keep G1 however, is the rifle diameter which is 1cm.

    Both the Pmop stock "Magnus" guns and the Takara Super Ginrai rifles, have a smaller diameter....really gives off the impression of lesser caliber than the G1 rifles ; hence I made my version as beefy as the G1 versions.

    Anyway, I managed to paint them all black today. Very pleased how the black paint brings out the detail. I'll apply a final Tamiya clear coat layer tomorrow, then photography and finally a day or two to fully cure before usage.

    I think the launcher look is from the short length of the barrel. And the handle being close to the center of the length of the gun.
