    I've had this little guy in my "wanted" thread for ages. I have soundwave, a custom soundblaster, ravage, frenzy and a custom rumble...but no laserbeak or buzzsaw...I finally accepted that it was never going to happen so I decided to do it my way. I spent a few hours tonight putting this together so I can "print" two of them out and paint them up as LB and BZ.

    Also, if anyone has any requests for future projects, please let me know!




    Update! - 01/03/13

    I decided to give the full color printing process a go on Shapeways, so we've got two versions here. I altered the sculpt of buzzsaw enough so that he wasn't in the exact same pose as Laserbeak. I also made the faction badge areas bigger so that the Decepticon symbol would fit better.

    Here are some pics of LB in both materials. I'm currently waiting on some paint from gamesworkshop before I finish them up.

    These came out perfect and they balance without any rocking and are completely stable.

    Holy wow! You know Shapeways can do things full-color with the Sandstone material, right? It might be more user-friendly to just go ahead and color up as many different Evil Cassette Robot Birds as you like and offer them that way...

    (Offhand, you've got Laserbeak, Buzzsaw, Sundor, and Garboil, plus their SG versions...)

    Awesome. I really wanted that Prowl too, and the RiD set.

    I miss Robot Heroes.

    Yeah, I noticed that as well. I'll be making some adjustments today before I send it off.

    Thanks for the feedback everyone, I really appreciate it.

    I'm actually thinking about doing a HOC Shockwave next :)

    Can't wait to see one done,those feet are the the most difficult thing to make him stand in that pose, but it is fantastic.

    And watch after you do this they will magically get released somehow, ha.

    Yeah, the feet are pretty wonky. Would you suggest altering them into a more pose friendly position? I tweaked them a bit so he'd be more balanced, but I'm not 100% sure on how that will turn out.

    Thank you very much. I really appreciated your initial critique. Sometimes it's difficult to see simple stuff like that after looking at the model for so long and the final changes I made make it look so much better. I was just planning on repainting this one as BZ, but I can make some model changes pretty easily to create something different. I'll revisit it later.

    I have plans to create a Robot Heroes Steeljaw and Ramhorn next followed by Eject and Rewind.

    I'll be releasing something cool tonight though!
