    Cheers. He got back to me and confirmed that.

    That's wonderful. However, you commented at a public site, meaning that our comments are subject to the scrutiny of others and everyone has the right to critique said comments.

    Also, please be aware that joining, reading and replying to comments regarding a subject of your choice at an online website might also be considered taking such subject "seriously".

    Hope this helps.

    Updates are one thing, but changing it is another. A tank version of Megatron is an update; a Headmaster, triple-changing version is a change.

    Please note, I've been a part of these boards for 13 years longer than you have and have over double your post count, and almost 4 times the liked posts on this site, so I must be doing something right, but please continue to try and make me out to be the idiot. If you want slavish recreations from something 30 years ago maybe you should consider sticking to masterpiece

    also a change can be an update, again use my examples of the universe figures. many of them did not have the same alt modes as their original versions, but they were still UPDATED versions of those characters.

    Alas we are getting off topic so let's get back to discussion on how awesome renderforms work is

    I know this is a small scale, made to order kit, but....I still can't wrap my head around that price. My TR Galvatron is sorely in need of an upgrade like this, but to have the kit cost move than the original figure? What?

    Yes! Both heads store inside the chest, with room for the flip down mask to still fold in as well. :) 

    I've had requests for just the head. I just need to figure out the best option for it seperately. Most likely, it'll come with just the "neutral" face, and no accessories. I'll make an update later this week for it.

    As for the headmaster guns, I only offer the brainstorm gun in legends colors, since his color is very different from the Hasbro one. The rest seem to be close to their takara counterparts. If you want the weapon set with the legends brainstorm guns, just order the set, and request the change in the comment section. :) 

    Theres alot of cost and work to make these. If I could snap my fingers and have them appear magically, I would give them away for free. But that isn't the case. As a independent designer, its easier to just offer my designs through shapeways, which would have similiar pricing, and no work for me. However, you as a potential customer would have to do some painting and assembly. And you wouldn't be able to get things like light piped eye effect. Plus the surface quality would not be anywhere near what I can offer with my hand made versions. For the nature of these items, yes, most people will find it pricey. At the same time, I need to charge what it costs to make them. Luckily, there are alternatives on Shapeways, if price is a factor. :)

    To any on the fence buyers concerned about the price be aware that you aren't getting Shapeways product. It's excellently modeled and cast to ensure it really feels like a solid retail item. They're wonderfully painted and I'm honestly not sure how Venksta color matches them all so well. I've bought a bunch of different items from him and have never been left looking at them with regret. The weapon kits are lovely but the new heads are in a different league.

    I've never bought a 3p add on for a toy, but I am seriously considering it.
    Nothing is too good for my lord Galvatron!

    My sentiments exactly, looks essential if you want the best Galvatron you can make with the base TR figure.

    I'm debating on whether I should get this shapeways neck hinge kit to see if I can get it to work with the new head once it arrives. I just don't know how secure the neck peg on the head will be and I don't want end up damaging anything. Plus I'm also concerned about how well the shapeways material would hold up.

    This is really nice and you did a great job as usual, but $45 is a bit out of my price range. Great sculpt on the faces though

    That particular shapeways piece is to remove the necessity of partsforming, i.e. Keeping the head attached for transformation. The renderform head requires removing the head to transform

    If you get it working be sure to post it. The combination of Renderform head plus no partsforming would take TR Galvatron from good to fantastic.
