    Smashmaster Seismus
    Version 3.0
    Update April 14, 2012



    [​IMG]
    "Seismus. The 'S' is silent."

    Credit first goes to Cybermnky on the TFW2005 boards for proposing this idea and thinking up the
    initial transformation scheme. I was captured by the awesomeness of the idea and I agreed to do it.

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Seismus belongs to a clan of war crazed robots called the Smashmasters, who eschew the
    cowardice of ranged combat in preference for getting into the thick of things. There's nothing
    Seismus likes better than to smash some heads together and prop up whatever remains on the tip
    of his trusty spear.

    He transforms into a mighty war hammer, powerful enough to level a skyscraper in one hit, or
    that's what he likes to tell the guys over energon shots. Whether that is true remains to be seen.

    [​IMG]

    Seismus comes armed with his spear, shield and his mini-Seismus, which unfortunately does not
    transform into anything. He also comes with conversion sheaths to allow larger figures to wield him
    in Hammer mode.

    Assembly Instructions

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Seismus comes with a bunch of accessories. When you receive your print, make sure all the whole
    set is there. Leave the accessories aside and concentrate on assembling the main bot.

    You might find that some parts will be too loose, and some too tight. It is an unfortunate side effect
    of Shapeways Strong Flexible. Don't panic. Add thin layers of glue to loose joints to tighten them up,
    and shave of joints with a blade or sandpaper to loosen them up.

    I've engineered the model to be as sturdy as possible even with the idiosyncracies of the material,
    but nothing is 100%. Bad prints shouldn't happen that often, though.

    Comments, critique and happy conversations much welcome!

    First there were headmasters. Then there were targetmasters. Followed by the powermasters. Now... the hammermaster, Thorbot!

    Shapeways are never front-paged AFAIK. Closest thing to it would be the MasterShooter stuff, which was originally based in Shapeways...

    That said... AWESOME little bot dude.

    EPIC! I love it! :D 

    Now how much would it take to retool this model into a Signal Lancer? :)

    That's where I originally got the idea from actually.

    As I said already, it's an awesome looking model. I have two sitting in a cart waiting for payday.

    Need two of these... any chance there are any pics of him painted, or colored renders? Just want to get a feel for how he looks painted up.
