    In the TFCon 2011 comic/magazine, the character of Stronghold is depicted with his to-be-famous signature weapon.

    It was not, for some reason, included in the TFCon Exclusive kit, so I figured I'd give it a shot.

    It will work on any other Transformer, of course, since it uses the standard 5mm pegs. There is an additional peg on the back of the sword to holster it on Stronghold's back.

    Feedback is welcome, this is the first Shapeways project I'm sharing here!

    Cool sword. Pretty sure many would welcome another weapons crafter.

    I like that it can attach to his back.

    The picture looks CG. Do you have any actual photos of the sword to post?

    I'm guessing it doesn't come painted.

    I've never ordered from Shapeways. What's the difference in the plastic options? what's best?

    I'm still waiting to get mine. I'll add pictures as soon as I get it.

    The plastic options are all described on Shapeways site, but my recommendation is the expensive Frosted Ultra Detail. It's clear and transparent, will take to dye so the piece can be died red, and then painted over in black.

    When you get this in hand and have some actual photos, feel free to create another thread. 3-D renders go in Fan Art, though, so here we are!
