DT/PG Workbench: TFP Megatron Upgrade Kit

At "Distant Thunder" we have not been idle while waiting for prototypes
and business details to finalize for the TSD-Alpha project.

In the mean-time some of us have been working on giving TF: Prime
Voyager Megatron his armament dues.

Here is some basic concept line-art of what we have been working on:
(Please keep in mind that these are preliminary concept art and are not
by any means technically accurate drawings of the final product.)

Cannon:


Cannon with replacement alt-mode mounting block:


Cannon with arm mount/sword assembly (Blade Retracted):


Cannon with arm mount/sword assembly (Blade Extended):


The current design we are working on will have a light-up feature
for the main-gun. The arm-mount/sword assembly will likely come
with the sword parts in both tansparent and opaque.

We are also working on some other items to include in the kit to give
the figure more combat options as depicted in the show.

When it is finished and test printed it will be available from Shapeways as a kit.
Or through DT/PG as a painted and completed version.

The completed version will come with the light-up mechanism
completed and installed.

As it will on mine as well.

I like the base mold very, very much. But the "clockwork horror" he comes
with is positively terrible. So after looking at a lot of sample art and screen-
caps. Me and one of the team decided to rectify Hasbro's mistake.

With a little luck it will be ready for order from Shapeways by the end of
March. Keep in mind we may have to wait a little while for Shapeways to
get our proof models in hand. After it passes an "in hand" inspection it
will be made available.

Do you think it's possible to adjust his height so he'll be at least tall as the FE Voyager Optimus figure?

We haven't really put any time in on his superstructure.

Maybe some replacement feet with ball jointed ankles could help?
What is the height difference between them?

Oh and after clearing it with him, I can share who is helping with the TFP Megatron upgrade kit.
I am pleased and honored to have...
>>Drum roll
MoonBaseTom on board as the 3D technician on this project. I figure when
making a cannon find the best cannon maker around.

We should have some progress to share in the not too distant future.
