    This is great! Really love the extra play value for the Aquatic themed pretenders too!

    That's amazing! Any chance of adding a removable eye to add an optional damaged eye (after Hotrod blasts it)? Maybe some dark, Smokey "blast effects" to simulate its "ink", too?

    Also, how about a "Tako-Tanku" recolour?

    The best part is the ramp and cockpit for Titan Masters! This is so great!

    Thank you all! =D

    Heh heh, well it did get disarmed .. (dis-tentacled?) too... :p 

    Glad you appreciated the "Under the Sea" theme I was trying to go for ~


    Very interesting ideas to say the least! Kind of kicking myself for not considering swappable eyes, might come back to that.

    Inky Blast effects? Could be a followup part so gonna perhaps add that to the burgeoning to-do list.

    Recolors are definitely possible, just a matter of 3d printing in that color and then jazzing things up with a little spot of paint work ;)

    Added a base piece which will hopefully prove helpful for certain base modes. It acts to raised the piece and also sports three 5mm ports line the sides and back for more attachment points!

    Now, isn't he looking much more dapper than before?

    The more eagle-eyed may have also noticed the horizontal slots across the back ramp piece.

    These are actually sized to fit the CyberTrack Pillars, and once they are used this way to elevate the back ramp ...

    IMG_5103.JPG

    ... .. it brings things to the same height for connecting to other raised CyberTrack pieces, or Omega Supreme's track piece as shown below!

    IMG_5104.JPG

    So just a little addon which should give more flexibility and base building possibilities for you, while bringing this entire piece to a raised height for better showcasing! =)​

    Stuff like this really makes me want to get into 3D printing.

    Great work.

    The ink effect could simply be a 5mm hole and a recoloured official blast effect (possibly using "clear smoke" tamiya/gundam/model paints)?

    Do you offer a print service for those that don't have access to a printer?

    Oh, you can reach out to Collector Crafts (US) or Cybertron Surgery (AU) as they can help with 3d printing! :)
