The difficulty would be in the fact that right now Megatron is completely proportionate. Realistically, the entire figure would have to be scaled up about 10% to be the right height compared to FE Prime, and 5% compared to RID Prime. Since all of his proportions are right, you couldn't just add height to the upper legs between the balljoint and the swivel joint, and all the other joints on him are held together by pins, which is beyond the ability of most casual customizers and wouldn't be worth the time invested.

Looks like we are a bit early on the update:
Here are the images of the model we are about to put through the
prototype phase: (The fourth image is all the parts in the kit.)
Also, The cannon does light up when completed.

Wow, looks awesome.

I really need to do a big shapeways haul soon...warbot heels, some stuff fakebuster made, and this.
Allow me to play doubles advocate here for a moment. For all intensive purposes I think you are wrong. In an age where false morals are a diamond dozen, true virtues are a blessing in the skies. We often put our false morality on a petal stool like a bunch of pre-Madonnas, but you all seem to be taking something very valuable for granite.

We are working on sourcing the kits.

It looks like we can offer it in a few different options.
Option 1: Through Shapeways.
This would be a two stage order of opaque and transparent parts.
Pros: Cheaper
Cons: texture and quality have been unpredictable at shapeways lately.
Other: if you send us a copy of the receipt email and your address we
will send you the parts and batteries for the light-up gimmick.

Option 2: Through us directly DT/PG
You can order it through us here at the 'Group' and we can get a much, much
better quality print. We do this by ordering the production through a different
company. To do this optimally we have produce them at least two at a time.
We also can install the electrical harness and prime and/or paint the kit for the
purchaser.
Pros: Much higher quality product all around, LED gimmick installation, and
we can offer finishing options.
Cons: More expensive. Also it may take a little longer to get in hand.


Some of our options are that you can order partial versions of the kit.
A: Main gun: The gun parts and the front peg only.
B: Gun and Altmode mount: As above plus the replacement vehicle mode mount.
C: Bracer/sword: Just the bracer/sword assembly.

When we have final solid numbers on production costs I will post them here with
ordering instructions.

Let me know the price and date of when you want to do it as the "Group".

I'm in as I'm loving all the mods for the PRID toys.
