    Upgrades for Power of the Primes (Shapeways)

    Update Jan 10th, 2018

    So, my big plan was to actually do two sets of swords for the Dinobots,
    among other things. One set shown here is inspired by the art from the
    War/Fall of Cybertron games.

    The other however is totally based off G1, and I'm glad to share this photo from epic_toys
    on Instagram who got his set in today! I'll be posting more photos soon once I
    got my own set in, but have a look at how the details turned out!

    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

    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!

    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!
