    Is a there technology available for me to duplicate a plastic piece (Specifically the MasterPiece Starscream null rays) into a clear plastic, sort of like the new "Ghost Starscream" figure?

    UPDATE Can someone offer me to do this? For a fee of course.

    Or failing that, there are 3D printing facilities available, if you can draw up the object in CAD.

    On the resin suggestion. How tough is resin? I've heard of it, but never handled it.

    @Treadshot= Any facilities you can think of?

    THanks all of you.

    you should email or PM darkov directly and ask for a quote.
    he's one of the few guys with his own vacuum chamber
    for recasting clear resin bubble-free.
    for solid colors, just about anybody who has done recasting
    can do it.

    The clear resin he uses is described as hard but brittle
    as long as you use it as a null-ray (not a load bearing point)
    you should be fine.
