    "If there is any idiot who embodies honor on the battlefield, it's Dyno-Commando. How do you expect to win if you can't stab someone in the back? He actually challenged me to single combat over command of my Bi-Borgs. Of course I did the only thing a leader should do in that situation... I had someone else shoot him in the back and left for dead. I hear this moron challenged Leader-Prime to a similar contest, and LOST! What a pair of buffoons. Now he's serving that goodie-goodie. Still, he would be useful in battle. I may have to try cloning him and make a superior version for myself!"

    "Sword-Slinger has no loyalty to speak of. I know he's just in it for the loot he skims off the to of my missions to liberate funds for my research. As long as he doesn't become greedy, I let him keep his due. Still, if he takes too much or betrays me, he may have to learn about the small explosive devices I placed in his brain compartments."

    These are cool. Strike-One-Strike Two and Nuts and Bolts are the two early favorites, for being the most unique looking and being symetrical. Not too shabby a price for a 7 inch figure too. They really must be giving you an better deal to get that size under 20 (or even 30 I think you said?). Shapeways would easily get upwards of 50-60 for that same size point.

    Thanks for the interest. At this point the figures are likely to end up on Thingiverse.com for private home 3d printing.

    Several of the heads and a few other parts are derivative of creative commons parts found there, and I would have to credit their creators. In fact at this moment only Nuts 'N Bolts is entirely original work by me, the rest have at least one CC part on them.

    If you have any suggestions or requests, I always looking for ideas.

    Free, as files on Thingiverse, to print on a home 3d printer.

    Or if you prefer at Shapeways at cost to manufacture.

    I mean while I put a bit of work into them, I realize they are currently little more than specialized building blocks shaped like robot parts.

    I could do a Skeletor easy from Sword, but would have to make many He-Man parts from scratch, so it might not be something I do quickly. Personally I prefer to make pairs both good or both evil, but since they are easily swapped, a Skeletor/He-Man would be possible, even if I could normallt choose to make something weirder like He-Man paired with Silverhawks Quicksilver or Thundercats Lion-O.

    Or did you mean Merman/Skeletor? Because I had a fish man already in the works from Machine Robo.

    Well, it was about that time that I noticed that Scaleface was about eight stories tall and was a crustacean from the protozoic era...

    "Bones was a former minor mystic with big plans and little foresight. Constantly surrounded by bungling minions. I took him in and bonded him with Dragon, a minor mystical beast. The pairing resulted in an unstable, but powerful cyborg sorcerer. I expected him to take try to take over, but he seems to be the model lieutenant. I bet he has some uncharacteristically clever plan to wait for the right moment, so until then I have one cybernetic camera on him. Prefers to work alone."

    Not final colors or details, but I finally have enough printed parts to make one whole figure!

    Worked out two parts that might have potential in the future. Torso pieces with carve-outs for Titan Masters. I made a robot mode and head mode one.

    So applying this to Dyno-Commando, it becomes a suit for something like Titan Master Clobber.

    So now all I need to do is design a cover plate to close in the Titan Master. Then you have a Pretender shell!

    Another option is Titan Master weapons. Check out the Masterful Sword!

    Just worked out a knee joint in the humanoid leg design, so I will be updating all the designs to have knee joints.
