Shapercreator's Shapeways Thread

Hello fellow TF fans, I'm here to present my shapeways designs/shop...


...alliteration is fun!
So, unfortunately what with a bad schedule and devoting most of my time towards 3D modeling and work, this is pretty much the last nail in the coffin to my old digibash thread. But since I'm working on 3D models anyway I thought "Hey! Shaper, you're letting people down! 'SAMMATAWITCHOO?! Why not give them something else if ya can't keep up with the digibashes? Make a shapeways shop and make some stuff!" And after I was done talking to myself and freaking people out at the local game store, I got working on some ideas. Hope you all enjoy my designs. There'll be many of them to come.



This is an upgrade kit I've wanted to do for ages, I tried scratchbuilding it, asking it via commission, and even tried just customizing it; but to no avail could I make it. So now i can make it and offer it. This set will turn Energon Barricade or Classics Onslaught into a classics style Ultra Magnus.
It will utilize the Maketoys Powercore Limbs to create a large scale Ultra Magnus. The idea comes from me wanting UM to not be some Optimus recolor, But instead being his own character.

Bruticus to Magnus Chestplate


This chestpiece attaches to the peg and hole on the back of the Bruticus Torso mode, giving the figure a less "flat" appearance and a more G1 Accurate Magnus chest rather than the busty Cab chest of Bruticus.
This Part has not been tested yet, but is available at a lower price.

Herculean Jaw

This is a custom face for the TFC Hercules figure. I do like the stoic face he comes with, but i feel it's not quite what i think Devastator would look like, so I made this face, which was inspired by MOTU Trapjaw. I feel it gives him a more brutish look rather than the calm face he came with or the overly cartoony "angry" face that came with the Rage of Hercules set.

This part has not been tested yet but is available at a lower price.

Deluxe Magnus/Prime Head

this head is designed to replace Energon Barricade/Classic Onslaught's head, it looks like Optimus Prime's head to mimic Magnus in his unarmored state. I will probably do an alternate version without a faceplate and less Prime looking.
Note: this requires you to remove the pin attaching Barricade/Onslaught's head to replace the head, KEEP THE PIN to pin this head on.

This part is untested but is available at a lower price.


Ultra Magnus Head

This head replaces The Energon/Classics Bruticus head.
Note: This head requires you to remove the pin attaching the Bruticus head to replace the head, KEEP THE PIN to pin this head on
This model is untested but is available at a lower price.

Sounds neat. Wonder how it will look combined. Also, PCC is not compatible with the Energon Combiners.

Would you consider using the same base to make Bruticus chest shields for the Colossus add-on?

You should read more thoroughly xD i said I will be making some new shoulders/knees that are energon to pcc... because even if they were compatible the Maketoys pcc limbs don't have knees.

will probably make some arms+legs that don't have all the epic features that the maketoys limbs have just incase someone doesn't want to get them.

The crossfire set? yeah I was thinking i would do a g1 styled one to go on the back like this one does, and making a new set of gun barrels for his new back.

ok sweet, thanks man, I've gotta get the maketoys limbs to make measurements. in between now and then i will get some tests of the current parts. I'm considering on doing an alt version of the magnus head with a less toony face.

I'd say keep it looks very good, you should try to incorporate the maketoys limbs in to some type of trailer for vehicle mode. If you were thinking about changing the head though maybe give it a faceplate mouth instead of a regular mouth to make him look more warlike I'd say make two sets of heads and make them available.
