    I assume different printers give different quality too? Plus the cost of ordering all of the various colors needed to produce each figure. That’s a lot of upfront money, but these do look great. Excellent job.

    Talk about ahead of the curve. I saw these when you dropped them, now in hindsight of the R.E.D. line reveal, you've got something special going on. These look like so much fun.

    These are fantastic, nice work!

    I'm a bit of a wargamer so I've been looking for something I can print to play skirmish games with, and these look pretty great. I don't suppose you have the original design without the articulation available? It would be easier to chop up and repose that than to try and assemble these awesome action figures from all the pieces.

    Keep up the great work, looking forward to seeing what you do next - Metroplex and Trypticon might give you some trouble though.... :p

    Make it a project, give 100 or so people one part to print them meet and assemble it together, as a group, then take your part home as a souvenir

    If the printer is well calibrated, the quality are the same. For anyone who just about to start 3d printing is "Yes ", quite expensive in the upfront. However, 3d printing will give you unlimited power to make your own toys.

    i sorry, I don't have non articulated design. Yes Metroplex and Trypticon would give me some trouble in term of their size.

    No worries thanks.

    Have you thought about terrain and playsets? Like inside the ark and teletraan 1? Or cybetron roads and buildings?

    Would love to be able to recreate scenes from episodes on Cybertron, especially with guardian robots and centurions.

    Good luck with the project, it looks fantastic.

    Some of this models have been around on other 3d prints sites for a few months now, as well. So definitely beat Hasbro to the punch.

    When you say you will make all characters, do you mean from the show or the toyline?

    If show, will you do any of the characters that only were in the Japanese shows, like the 1988 guys?
