    UPDATE:


    I got the second version blades in for my Arcee and they are AWESOME. You can order them here:

    And these are the pictures:

    "All I need is the hood, then I can be an assassin!"

    "I bet you have a wrestling move you'd love to show me, too, eh?"

    "My boots are stylin'."

    "I don't really blame them for wanting to wrestle with me."

    So, here's the first thing I've made via Shapeways:

    These can be ordered here: Transformers Prime Arcee replacement Forearm Blade by MisterFanwank on Shapeways

    They are sold individually, not as a set. I recommend the Polished White, Strong and Flexible material. It's really nice.

    These are nice. Is there any way they integrate into alt mode?

    Also you might wanna reduce the length of the 5mm pegs, to maybe like 4mm so they sit nearer her forearms. Most figures can still hold 4mm long pegs with no problem.

    Nice work. I like them, but do you think you could make a smaller version? They are cool, just a little too large for me. Hopefully that isn't too much work...!

    I don't really see any improvement from the ones she came with. They're not any more accurate and are just a big. I think I may have missed the point.

    if you can do a set of 2 for just $15.00, then i will bite.
    but 1 for $12.00 for just 1, is too much.

    I am not going to spend more on a pair of accessories, then i did for the Arcee figure itself.

    Meh. I would have preferred smaller show accurate blades since the ones she comes with are gigantic. It would be cheaper too.

    totally agree, since arcee came out, an accurate blade design pop out in my head. i believe that i m not the only one. since u did one, i think that i wont do mine. sit back & wait for ur improving one.

    i look forward to seeing the pics of the version 2 blades with a figure.
    And i see you adjusted the prices on the version 1 set to be more reasonable.

    Yeah, I set those prices a while back when I was experimenting with the website. Since I only see the price without markup on my stuff, I didn't realize I had made them that expensive.
