Cool mace. Just so you know, the proper term for that is a flanged mace.

nifty mace, although I think it might be cool to have the mace bit be a stylized Con symbol!

Coolness... Better looking than the ones already on shapeways. Would be nice to see an Axe version that can go against the Corbot War/Carnage Axe.

Awesome looking mace! I was hoping to make a similar one for WfC Megatron. Is there a chance that you could make some fists for Megs to fit with the mace?

isn't better that the maze handle splits to fit in every 5mm compatible hand and then reattaches? i mean like the handle of the perfect effect ratbat trident or the fansproject black rodimus scythe?
instead of making new hands or being exclusive for only a few robots?

Thanks for the advice, I'll definitely keep it in mind. I did end up getting a very basic airbrush, a cheapo $22 Testors starter (camo stencil) set that uses cans of aerosol and special screw-on caps for small acrylic/enamel paint jars to attach to the airbrush itself. It's not the most controlled or accurate set up but the price was right.

You asked for WIP photos of my MP Starscream; they're at the bottom of this page: http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/transf...nd-pics-6.html

I think he's coming along well! Already started adding a bit of paint on his face (the lines across his eyes, and adding better gold accents to his "nose" and mouth next). Along with the airbrush and Dremel, I think I'm ready for those Shapeway SS hands soon! Obviously, I'm taking my time with him but it's fun learning and adding parts along the way!

I might try to track down a cheap HFTD Leader Starscream on clearance at a Ross or TJ Maxx somewhere in the future and try my hand at a complete repaint of it, complete with the new hands too!

Those came out great and look much better and in scale than his default mech tech sword things! Can only imagine what a little paint TLC will do to make them really pop on the figure! The size and engineering look spot on too, though I wonder, how do they look transformed as jet booster parts on Deluxe Screamer? What Shapeways quality are these in the photos? White, strong, flexible material?

I happened to procure a second custom-painted DOTM Deluxe Starscream; the first was with a darker gray/black color scheme much like in the last two movies (sans the tattoos; his jet mode looks realistic) and the second a brighter silver/steel color scheme that mirrors his original TFTM look.

I really do dig the mold and definitely plan to pick up at least two sets of the DX DOTM Screamer weapon sets and paint them up accordingly.

Thanks for sharing!

PS - Shapesways sword blades for Sidearm Sideswipe would be pretty cool, and I dig the wrecking ball claw design for Grapple! Makes me want to get those two figures now!
Congratulations on your upcoming marriage! I wish you eternal bliss dude!

Not a fan of those aerosol powered airbrushes...You need to buy refills if anything runs out and I'm not a fan of that. I rather invest in a good air compressor and a gravity feed airbrush.
Your SS is sweet looking man. Did you do anything to the jet boosters? They look like they are painted, which looks awesome btw. Good luck on the SS hands

I have my sample of the deluxe SS weapons. Looks okay and I wanna make some changes. They don't really look right mounted on the back though, cuz they sit too far apart and too high to be accurate. I'm still thinking of solutions to fix that.

Presently I'm still mulling on how to make those tiny joints reliable. So sorry for the delay folks. But the good thing is I've been learning from my experience in making those leader hands, some tricks which I plan to use on Rodimus.

Lol put $60 in an envelope and post it to me...That's how much the MP is isn't it?

Maybe...? Is there any comic or animation references I can look to?

Yes Yes Yes guys...it's Meg's flanged mace! (thanks Gryph )
Actually I think the High Moon guys did design the axe with reference to the Con symbol. The similarities are too many to be coincidental. Anyway I referenced the appearance based on screenshots of the intro trailer.

Corbot's Axe is amazing, I must humbly say I have no idea how am I going to top that.

That will be an upcoming project...

Well...I've already planned for that, but thanks for your astute observation!


Since we are on this topic, the mace can split into 2 sections: The main mace and a smaller auxiliary one for dual-wielding purposes. I might make the bottom end bigger so the aux. mace looks more aggressive.

@FB: If only I have an MP Rodimus, I would have sent it to you... As for the mace, what's the length (combined and in two)?

80mm, 50mm separated. About 13mm total length.
It's pretty substantial.
