    Lol, understandable. I usually spend my shapeways proceeds on my own products. Money is hard to come by.

    The attached images show off my Alpha Trion prep (day 1). It's going to be awhile until I completely finish this project since I'm still designing the arms, waist and legs. Hopefully I can find a cheaper alternative to make this set cost less. In the end I hope it is going to be my cheap Hasbro version of the Ex Gokin Alpha Trion.

    Small Update
    School has been quite a struggle, but I have been working slowly towards completing these projects I have started so long ago. Working in Blender has helped me gain control of it and I am more confident in my ability now. I finally fixed the galvatron head to my liking and am working towards Alpha Trion's completion. All I need to finish now is the legs. I really don't know if people are interested in this still but ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ . I now own a very cheap 3D printer, but it has proved to be very shoddy in its quality, I hope to invest in a better quality one later. I will post prints when I get the chance (Probably after AP Tests and Graduation when I have the time).

    Do you happen to have a "Big Cannon"? I'd be interested in seeing your head adapted to fit it. :D

    Thank you!

    Depends, I may if I feel the head it is not up to par, or if someone requests/commissions it so.

    Sadly, I do not own Big Cannon. It is too expensive at the moment, (Senior Dues took out a lot from me) but if you can send measurements I may be able to.

    Interesting to see where this will go.

    Will he be able to transform based on a stock Scourge ? What kind of elbow joint do you have in mind ?​

    Thank you!

    Big fan of your work! Yes, he will be a kit based on stock Scourge, but I currently do not have a transforming scheme set up for him. It's kinda hard fpr me to imagine A3's alt-mode with his G1 cartoon appearance. I currently have a ball joint set up for the elbow, but I am considering on changing it to a swivel-hinge.

    Thanks & Goodluck !
    I usually find that Shapeways joints tend to become a bit more loose after usual amounts of play, so I can recommend to design the elbow joint with that in mind - of course, it should not be too difficult for any potential customer to assemble it either.

    In general, the Floro Dery aesthetic is very interesting, because it makes for quite a challenge to engineer a transforming toy around.

    Prom just passed and the end of the school year is incoming, that means more time for my projects (well at least after I finish designing some Caps and completing some personal art projects.) I am almost done modeling the kit. I just have to make test prints and some minor adjustments.

    Also here's another project I completed for myself and my portfolio, A Krang Megablok head and suspender replacement and a seperate Megablok minifigure scaled Krang (My 3D printer is having difficulty printing the figure but I assure it works) If enough people like it I may upload it to Shapeways.

    I really want to see that Alpha Trion finished. That would be awesome.
