    After wishing for a while that there was a single place for people with ideas but less than the requisite amount of 3d modeling talent to put their most-wanted ideas for 3d-printed upgrades, fixes, custom pieces, etc. in the hopes that some of the heavy hitters might see something and run with it, and not finding any existing thread, I finally decided to just make my own and hope for the best.

    The Titans Return line has both a ton of potential for customization and more than a few fixes that could really be helpful in making almost-winners into must-haves. I'd love to see:


    • Heels for the Rewind mold. Pieces that don't require partsforming probably would be difficult, given the limited space to work with and how the transformation works. At this point, I would buy partsforming pieces without question.
    • Highbrow is one set of shoulders away from being the LSOTW Rotorstorm that I've always wanted. Even just the current design with a nice hinge on the shoulder wings that allows them to fold back would work.
    • I really like Scourge. I like him even more after having flipped his legs around. I'd like him even more still if I had a set of replacement pieces for his former-shins-now-calves that allowed for proper leg articulation and were less obtrusive in his altmode.
    • Alpha Trion...jeez, Alpha Trion. To finally get one after all these years, only for it to be...well, what it is, is just so disappointing. I'd love to see a conversion kit for this, a la Javaco's excellent IDW Whirl and Pyro kits. (I already contacted Javaco to see if he had any plans, but he says he's out of the large-scale conversion game for now.) I would throw more money than I probably should at something that gets rid of the beast form pieces that can't just be removed (paws and legs can be taken off without much issue, but the shoulders need replacing), restores the cape (give him a solar sail in vehicle mode or something), and maybe even replaces some of the egregious miscellaneous errors (the robot mode feet, the codpiece).
    • And since I just happened to see the thread for johnbonhamtron's cancelled kit, I wish someone would do a CW Battle Core Optimus-to-Thunderclash kit. I have Venksta's head and gun, but this thing needs some beefing up.


    I'd love to see what other people might love to see, and even more so if designers take interest.

    ok this is a great idea was just thinking about something like this when i was going to sleep last night after loking at my display and mp ironhide ratchet

    what i would like to see someone make is something to fill the gaps at the side's thats left after taking the door kibble off and maybe fill the bum out a bit ...don't need to be incorperated into the transformation ( just make it a partsformer )

    How about replacement feet parts for the new astrotrain mold to give it its classic locomotive front and rocket booster back?

    A skeleton face for Masterpiece Delta Magnus, to turn him into SG Mags (and maybe a sword too)

    Some new feet for MP-29, to get rid of those little ballerina toes and add a smidgen of extra height. Bonus points if they could be incorporated into the transformation somehow

    Something like this (sorry about crappy shoop):

    A little target master for TR wheelie that turns into a slingshot and can chill in the car mode.

    That would need a full production run!

    Also a tower insert to replace Cerebros when TR Fort max is in city mode. Just looks too small.

    A full-functional head+neck swap for TR Galvatron that would remove the Headmaster gimmick and let the head store in the chest

    Bro there's already like, ten versions of null rays on Shapeways alone. I'm sure you can find a satisfactory design

    Sis! They are all for the generations figure or Masterpiece seeker. None of them match the cartoon or are made for the G1 seeker mold. I'm not looking for a 'good enough' option. I've waited 30 years already and I don't mind to see what the next 30 years bring.

    Cool!

    here you go. The original seekers need them, but the coneheads need them the most. In the cartoon they wield the same null rays but in black. You think you can whip this up as a set? Like 2 times 6 pieces?

    I don't have the original seekers to hand but if you can get me the peg hole size and lenngth you want the null rays I'm sure it wouldn't take long to make them and put them on a Shapeways store for you
