    I expect them to be on clearance in the very near future (certainly by the end of the year) so at least there's that option.

    Oh whoa, are these new shell fronts supposed to be for the prime masters that didn't get one?

    EDIT: Also I'd definitely pay for a whole shell.

    I guess it might be wise to start stock piling Prime Masters huh? So will the covers work with any of them or will they only work with certain molds?

    Certain molds, there are four kinds of primemaster pretender molds as i mentioned.

    For instance the doubleheader and stranglehold shell front I have coming are intended to work on the landmine/metalhawk mold(the bludgeon is the same except his arms won't accommodate the shoulder pads i have lined up). The longtooth i have will fit the skulgrin/bomburst molds.

    Are they meant to be homages to the original pretenders, or just new shells for the other prime masters, or the actual pretender armors for the other prime masters that I missed somehow?

    Hey buddy, been off grid for awhile on holiday. Sadly not as far along as i had hoped but i should be ready to put in the first order any day now. So a couple of weeks i think all being well theyll be up to order. Expecting the next lot wont take near aslong as the first.

    I'm curious to see how much they'll cost, i guess they'll come in at somewhere between 15-20$ each or maybe overshoot that which is pricey but WTH.

    Thanks for the patience, almost there.

    Ha so am i, they have been hard and a little more time consuming than i thought.

    However, test orders in, works done for now and i'm waiting. Thanks. Can start the next ones. Lol

    Oh and good news, they are going to average around 13usd! Better than i thought(i may raise the price on them in 4 months of there release but they'll be 13 for a good while if SW doesn't raise the price first).

    Update: i got the test prints in. This is really the ruff side of developing products because there are more corrections than expected. I really must check them in another print to be sure, and i just finished the corrections, however don't think i can spend another cent on plastic crack until i reup. So i am alittle frozen for the time being, when i would really like to have these up or aleast moving forward.


    image.jpeg

    These came out quite well considering this was a first attempt. Some corrections i made/will make from what is pictured are tidying below the knees area. Increasing space for the primemaster to fit. Moving strangleholds head back alittle. Their shoulder pads which are not pictured didn't really fit so they have been reworked.

    With those corrections and a few similar on LT i will be happy with them. They look good next to the others shells. Sorry if anyone is waiting on these, what i am going to do is press on with new designs and hopefully won't have to double proto print those.

    There will be more and more, that is my aim, up before the year is out. Save your pennies. Thanks for the support.

    These came out amazing. I actually have I guess a request? Would it be possible that when you're done with the ones you'd want to do, if the grimlock Pretender shell could be done.
