    Oh, wow. I got Rhino mixed up with Jackhammer. Sorry, I had both and had a brain fart.

    Yeah, I was planning on using TR Voyager Prime for Bruce Sato/Rhino, but TR Quake isn't a bad idea, if I can't think of someone else. As it stands, it looks like Miles Mayhem/Switchblade will be first, though...I just got a TR Highbrow and am waiting until I get paid Tuesday to order the Viper faceplate. I promise I'll post a pic here when it's finished, though.

    If I could make a suggestion that might further offer more body possibilities with continued face molds? Titans Return neck socket to balljoint adapters. A small offset from a normal balljoint location to put a Titan Master there instead of the previous head, without removing the Titan Master head for it to work. I know I'd certainly buy at least a half dozen, and think quite a few others might buy some as well.

    I'm amazed there isn't a Nash Gorey/Powerhouse faceplate, I think it would look awesome on TR Octone (of course, re-painted to look like Outlaw =D). Also Vanessa Warfield/Whip would be interesting on a Chromedome base - maybe with a bit of extra modification to make it more Manta and less Chromedome, lol. Of course, can't do the jet mode without some extreme modding, but the car mode is definitely the right shape ^^

    If I might make just a general, open suggestion to Trent and any other Shapeways creators...what about replacement front pieces and weapon parts for the Prime Master "decoy" Pretender armor? They're just held on with friction pegs, and they seem to be uniform otherwise.

    Now that all the names have been changed, what is the best material to order? What is the closest to an actual Hasbro product?

    Professional plastic is the old hp nylon so that’s probably the closest they currently have aside from whatever the old frosted ultra detail materials are now called

    I'm never gonna be able to order any of these unless I can see a side by side comparison in hand. I'm not wasting my money on garbage like I did last time. I bought 4 heads, waited forever for them to ship & they eventually ended up in the trash can.

    UPDATE: I ordered Cybertron Sideways/Noisemaze in Smoothest Fine Detail Plastic. It looks great! Not like the rough colored shit I ordered in the past.

    I was just in another thread saying somebody need to make full Pretender shells. Just like with the deluxe Insecticons, Hasbro never retooled Kickback into Ransack, an obvious no-brainer. I was hoping for Bugly & they failed me again. I wish somebody on Shapeways would finish the Pretender shells. Mainly the Decepticons Bugly, Iguanus & Finback.

    Smoothest Detail is what used to be called Frosted Ultra Detail, and is the best for sharp sculpts.

    [​IMG]

    What was strong and flexible is now known as versatile plastic, good for larger items and kit-figures like the Weaponizers.

    [​IMG]

    Professional plastic is a ultra-tough, sort of satin-y finish that detail wise is between smoothest detail and versatile, I like it for big weapons like Cerebros' sword. While it works great with the 5mm peg versions, it does not like clips or pop-joints designed for the other materials, so I don't offer it on the kit-figures.

    [​IMG]

    The other thing I like to recommend for small items is metal.

    [​IMG]

    That is Rhodium Plated, Bronze Polished, and Gold-Plated steel, I believe.

    And here's polished nickel steel:

    Can the Titans Return faces be printed in metal? GI Joe B.A.T. & Viper in silver would look kick ass! Or a Cylon face in silver or gold.

    The prints shown are, yes. There was an older "metallic plastic" which was powdered aluminum inside a binding material (I think) but that was more like versatile plastic and is no longer being offered. The prints in the picture are made of actual metal.

    Metal has certain thickness requirements that won't work with a Titan faceplate because of the requirements of the back-panel. Basically, the ring around the screw hole isn't thick enough, and the way the screw and the back of the figure are designed keep me from making it any thicker.
