    IMG_0184.JPG I have to give credit where credit is due, this was inspired by FShuler's amazing chest work for Volcanicus. I felt bad for Slash that she didn't get to combine with the other Dinobots. Fan modes abound for attaching her to Volcanicus, but they all fell a little short for me. In this configuration I imagine her as almost a minion of sorts. She combines to form a power pack, boosting the power of the already monstrous bot. I am following FShuler's format of making it two pieces so it can be printed without supports. I took that a step further so by making the hand pegs separate pieces, again to avoid having to use any support. The next step will be filling out the pack. It will have 5mm ports to hold the weapons of all the individual bots. Swoops Sword will point upward to mimic an antennae in a communications array. All of my files will be available on my Thingiverse account for those who wish to use them.

    Nice job, asphalt! This guy keeps getting better every time we beef him up. I'm looking forward to seeing the weapons stored on him.

    V6 of the pack didn't fit so well. Adjustments are being made for V7. Now with 5MM ports to hold weapons. IMG_4559.JPG

    V8 of the pack came our great. I need to adjust the holes slightly, but I really like how it came out.

    I look forward to seeing it.

    Thanks, I saw your combo. Not a way I had thought of adding her on.

    I don't have a 3D printer. Any chance of purchasing off you directly?

    EDIT: You have Shapeways. When this and the chest filler are done, can you put them there?

    Thingiverse is an online resource for 3d printable files. I honestly do not know if this will interfere with the PE Add-ons. I haven't seen their set from behind yet. But my knee jerk reaction would be that it would not.

    Thanks man. I'll wait for a free shipping sale, as postage to Australia is even more pricey.
