    Upgrades for Power of the Primes (Shapeways)

    Update April 14th, 2018


    In here is where I'll post up links for all the Power of the Primes related
    3D printed items you can get from Shapeways. Click on and have fun!

    Weapon Accessories for POTP Battletrap

    This set consists of a double barrelled blaster and a sword. My intent is to have the set be
    usable not only for Battletrap, but for Roadtrap and Battleslash as well.

    That is why I chose to have the blasters split in two to allow both smaller bots to
    have something to arm themselves with in alt modes. Of course, this means that Battleslash gets
    only one barrel for his front mounted arsenal, but I think it fits him better proportionally.

    I have received many suggestions to create a propeller that can be reconfigured
    to be a sword, but I erred on the side of simplicity and decided to have a proper
    looking sword that resembles his card art. This sword can be stowed under Battleslash's
    alt mode tail, or on Battletrap's back using his rear storage peg.

    G1 Styled Swords for POTP Dinobots

    Who doesn't think these new dinobots are lacking in the accessory department?
    These swords are closely based on their G1 renditions and are absolutely
    indispensable when you're looking to update your dinobot collection.

    Sword for voyager Grimlock. 124mm in length, stores on shoulder kibble and on Dino's back.

    Sword for deluxe Snarl. 81mm in length.

    Sword for deluxe Sludge. Measures 81mm in length.


    Add-ons for Voyager Starscream
    [​IMG][​IMG]

    Almost everyone had issues with Starscream's feet, thus I made new ones for him.
    These new feet are slimmer, wrap tightly around his combiner port and are based off
    his feet design in G1. Colour shown in the photos is Shapeways blue dye, so I guess
    you'll need to paint them yourself closer to match.

    These new null-rays are designed to fill the awkward gap between his upper arms and the
    stock accessories. They come with a outward swivel to allow them to accommodate his
    chunky forearms, and they peg in real nice and sleek in his alt and combined modes.

    (Images are kinda sucky now. Will retake with better camera soon.)

    Blasters for Dreadwind and Blackwing

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]


    Pretty self explanatory. Replacement blasters for POTP Dreadwind and Blackwing that harkens
    closely to their original accessories. These can also peg together into double barreled
    heavy blasters like before!

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    I've also done a variant of Blackwing's blasters to allow him and Dreadwind to
    combine into their superset form more securely.

    Blaster for voyager Hun-grr

    [​IMG]
    It seems a pity that the entire Terrorcon team gets to have their little pewpew
    blasters except for Hun-grr. This little item solves it!
    Measuring a respectable 114mm long, the accessory comes with extra 5mm ports to mount
    all the blasters of the combiner team.

    I want to see someone can do a TLK Infernicus upgrade set for POTP Abominus, but maybe not from you. I don't want to stress you out.

    I see tabs where they might be able to combine into a mega-sword for Volcanicus.

    Eventually I'll get around to my own version.

    he's already got them up on his shapeways, these combine into something for Volcanicus while the g1 ones don't. (he said as much on his facebook page.)

    Thanks! I can't wait to get my hands on the first samples too...

    Nope not yet, I'll release them once I verified the swords work. Give or take a couple of weeks!

    Updated the first post with a bunch of images and links, but I want to use this post to highlight that yes, you can store Grimlock's sword on his dino back.
    Also, version 2.0 of his sword is upsized and absolutely MASSIVE compared to the first release. As befitting his stature.
