    Here, maybe we can suggest ideas for any shapeways creators willing to try, instead of pestering each creator on their own.

    my first suggestion, an add on kit for thundertron's paw parrot mode, thunderbeak, so he is more bird like without modding, maybe the parts can form a sheathe or something to store his sword on the hip coats for those of us that modded it off the mechtech?






    Any creations done because of or filling a desire in the thread will be listed here.

    As a Shapeways seller and CADD designer, how would you guys feel about a weapons upgrade for FoC Bruticus? Larger cannons for Onslaught, bigger gun ( more G1 ) for Swindle, actual guns ( instead of swords ) for Vortex, and maybe a large gun for Brawl?

    Omnibot Overdrive Conversion/Kit Idea

    A FOC Sideswipe to Classic-verse Overdrive conversion/kit with new head & weapons.

    That would an awesome idea...would work as well for customizers...I'd even suggest a )Moonracer (G1 - Transformers Wiki head and melee weapon...

    I like it! Yes, please!

    Let's take this one a step further, how about making multiple heads for G1 Cars that could pop onto FOC Jazz or Sideswipe, Prowl, Bluestreak, Sunstreaker, etc,.

    One I would like to see in the future and I am sure it might happen is seeker heads and weapons for the tfc eagle mold as his alt bot mode resembles a seeker and its thier jet.

    Though I rarely post in these sorts of threads anymore, I would like to point out Onslaught has already been done:

    Treadshot's Shapeways Thread


    FOC Onslaught Upgrade Kit

    [​IMG]

    So it would be rather meaningless for another kit to be produced, given that Insane Galvatron's "Twin cannons" and Ellamin's wish for help with the alt. mode are already covered.

    The cannon he comes with has two sets of holes since the mounting points on his vehicle and torso are different widths. That looks like it only has one set. Am I just not seeing it right?

    As for not making another set, my idea would look different and all the weapons would combine. I'll go ahead with it since it only costs me time. People like having choices. :)

    My set actually adds to the green cannon. I'm about to post the results, actually, once real life gets out of the way.

    The set is made to actually add an extra attachment point on the vehicle mode for the green gun, and thus reduce stress.

    The post linked above the picture has more pictures and an explanation of how it works.

    Ah, okay. I'm going to design complete replacements. That green gun is crap.

    I don't know how possible this would be, but I think creating a sleeve for the diecast torso tab on the MP seeker body would be nice. iGear remedied this by making it longer on their versions, but it's far too short on the MP-03 and MP-11 molds, respectively. I think it's especially worse with the latter. Basically, I'd be interested in something that could fit snugly over top of the existing tab that can also fit into the halved portion of the nosecone section.
