    Love those! Did you get the figure or are you just going with 5mm pegs? If you do have him, would you mind doing up a hinged satellite dish for his existing Canon? I just want to make his alt a lil more.. believable!

    Haven't found him yet. Worked off some pictures and used the 5mm standard.

    Hi Trent,

    You might want to look at the handle length of that Sounders blaster handle, it looks sleeker than the G1 weapon but his forearms are still a bit chunky enough that they may hinder pegging in if it's too short. I had to kitbash an extension for the G1 version to fit mine.

    Looks like I'll need to make a special version for TR Soundwave. About how tall is that extender, in mm?

    Also:

    Shapeways has altered their pricing for the "Frosted Detail" plastics, their high-end semi-translucent high detail materials. In doing so, for most items on Shapeways the cost of Detail plastic is down, and the change has resulted in drops of cost for those materials on all of the Prize Inside! store. Literally everything we offer in these materials is now less expensive, with some larger items being 2/3 to 1/2 their previous costs.

    This is a bigger change for Frosted Ultra and Frosted Extreme than than you'd get out of most of Shapeways' coupon codes or sales.

    The store, as always, is here.

    It's 15mm in height, Trent, you could probably get away with 13mm post though as when held it has about 3/3.5mm clearance of the forearm.
    Out of curiosity I also measured his standard rifle, turns out it's about 1mm longer than the adaptor at pretty much 16mm, perhaps a hair under.

    So question.

    I really want to buy these to turn Roadburn into Cliffjumper. However, I'm not sure what the best material would be to order it cast in.

    My experience with "Colored Strong and Flexible Polished" has not been good, at least as far as faces and heads go. The details always turn out soft or melted-like, which only gets even worse when paint is applied. Black Hi-def acrylate seems to produce better results, but the pockmark protrusions created from where it was cast are a pain to clean up and often result in scarring the surface as a result of trying to remove them. I've never ordered parts in frosted ultra/extreme detail before, but what I've been told is the tradeoff for good quality with that material is fragility, which seems like a risk given this part needs to bend in order to apply it to the neckhole.

    What's the best way to go here?

    So I just bought several parts for a custom in both WSF Polished and Black HD Acrylate, ALL of the BHDA parts broke very easily (not as easily as FUD) and all the WSFP parts held up and actually have amazing detail, more than in the past. Hope this helps.

    I haven't had any problems with acrylate like shapercreator14, but I've used it primarily for heads, faces, and guns and I try to keep my designs sturdy, but either acrylate or one of the frosted detail options is the way to go for a sharp print.
