    I added a new blaster accessory for Hun-grr! Now he won't feel so neglected when he's standing
    around with his teammates.
    Measuring a respectable 114mm long, the accessory comes with extra 5mm ports to mount
    all the blasters of the combiner team.

    Found some time to pot up images of the Battletrap set!
    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.

    Hello,

    Would you happen to know if there is a difference between the old material SWF and what is shown now for the set of 5 sword print, with this new material Red Processed Versatile Plastic?

    Do you have a picture of all 5 Dinobots with the swords from the 5 printed set? And is the Grimmy sword the 1.0 version or 2.0 version in the set? Are both 1.0 and 2.0 possible to print?

    Do you know where to find discount and coupons for Shapeways products? or know when they become available?

    Do you sell directly off Shapeways perhaps?

    Thanks!

    I believe the old [Color] Strong and Flexible is the new [Color] Natural Versatile, and the old Strong and Flexible Polished is the new Processed Versatile. I don't think the actual material has changed, just the name.

    Hey there,
    Thank you for your questions.

    Apart from the name change, Strong Flexible and Versatile plastic is basically the same thing: 3D printed (laser sintered) nylon.
    The only image I can recall of all 5 dinobots with their swords is this one I posted on my Facebook page:
    [​IMG]
    This image shows Grimlock's version 1 sword, so it's quite the small one.

    I have since retired version 1.0 Grimlock's sword, so the only available version is the latest one.
    Shapeways does offer discounts and promotions, but expect them to do so later in the year near Black Friday period.

    Hope this helps!

    The Battletrap weapons are a brilliant idea - definitely going to order them!

    Do you take requests or commissions?

    Love the Starscream pieces!

    Talk to me about the feet please....they attach easily? And as for color? I see them come in blue from the store already? Will they match, or will it have that obvious grainy texture compared to the rest of the blue plastic on the figure?

    I'm interested in these for sure.

    edit: does it make more sense to buy them in "smooth white" and paint them, or get them in the printed blue?
