    9/7/11 Uupdate: Prototypes are here. They look good. The only issue is that the crown for cobra commander's head is too loose. That can be fixed when we recast it though.

    Here is a video.



    And pics.

    Right now we are going to print them out and then recast the set. Once I figure out how much the recasts will be, I may offer some up. keep you posted when we do.

    The parts are being "processed" by shapeways. They said I should have them by Sept 20. Long time it sucks. I cant wait.

    Ok good news. Shapeways has sent me a UPS notification. Hopefully I should get these by the end of the week.

    Update. Prototypes are in hand and tested. The nullrays fit perfectly and do not fall off. Hopefully that will stay the same with the recast.

    Posted a video of the upgrade set with starscream.

    Update on pricing. Talking with my partner and the recaster. We estimate the weapon set to be close to $50

    2x Nullrays
    2x missile launchers
    1x Cobra Commander Crown
    1x WST Megatron holder

    The weapons can be bought in matching pairs for $25 each.

    The Macross Gunpod will be $20-$25 each.

    I was asked this question:


    haha Not EVEN close. It cost me $106 in White Strong & Flexible + polished just for what you see in this pic. (Cobra Commander not included)

    You have to really understand the scale of these pieces. They are MASSIVE. So to order 2x nullrays and 2 missile launchers will easily be WAY more than $50.

    ETA on these casts bro?

    For those of use who are impatient members that wish to spend the extra cash... any chance of letting us order these from your shapeways? I'd mainly like the nullrays!
