    Those are some old knock offs of a micromaster combiner team called Six Liner. Can't remember the individual names. They were released in Japan, and I think maybe in the Universe line in the US.

    Longshot but: Anybody have a link to a printable flight stand that's worked for their TFs?

    Specific figures I'd love to get up up and way include Kingdom Air Razor, Beast Wars Silverbolt, and the Classics Seekers, but happy to hear about stands that wouldn't work for them / would work for other figures too.

    I have clear resin, which on the one hand seems perfect for a flight stand (it's clear!) but on the other might have trouble supporting heavy bots (it's resin!). (My impression is resin is less strong than ABS, but correct me if I'm wrong about that -- I'm new to this 3D printing thang).

    The strength really shouldn't make a difference for something like a deluxe figure. I haven't seen any flight stand models floating around, but they should be stupid simple to design on something like tinkercad. All you need to know is that the port is 3mm

    Hi there everyone, first of all, all the models that you have done are gorgeous I'd never guess that there were people that actually made thier own transformers. Well going to the reason behind my post: have anyone made or teach me how can I make it the legs for the warbotron version of Onslaught, I got the complete set but it was the die cast KO version that doesn't have leg articulations or knees, I'm already doing some experiments to get them some wraist articulation, but I couldn't get Onslaught legs :( :( :(

    Something like this?

    It was designed to have an upside down tripod shape to hold up figures securely, or can be used to peg into any available 5mm port since that struts are sized that way too :)

    Hey, got a question regarding a custom and here seems relevant. So Im after a Titans Returns faceplate suitable for Optimus Primal. Ive found one result on shapeways but im in Australia and dont want to spend that much on shipping. I cannot personally find anything that fits on the sites that instead sell the 3d models to print myself. Im wondering if anyone here can help.
    What would also work is if there was some existing model or specs for a TR faceplate I could work from, as I have experience in 3D modelling but absolutely nothing in engineering, and i dont have ready access to the printer i would use for trial and error. Or if people take commissions for this kind of thing id maybe rather spend a lot of money doing that than on shipping to a big company.

    If it's for your own personal use, go ahead! I just don't want people changing up a few things and then posting it and then claiming it wholly as their own is all, and, god forbid, making money from it.

    I wanted to make a comment on how cool it is that someone actually reads and respects someone else's request. Then even better when the original designer lets them know that they are cool with changing it for their own use. You both are awesome.

    I had a question: I don’t have a 3D printer myself, but really want to print that savage claw mode upgrade for the siege Galaxy upgrade Optimus Prime. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4636256/comments
    W
    hat would be the best way to go about trying to get this printed? Apparently some parts have to be mirrored and the fingers have to be printed in multiple. Wish the original designer was just selling it on Etsy or something lol.

    I'm in the same boat as this guy, except I use a 3D printing service that's local and I'm looking for a head that could be suitable for a Siege Ratchet custom. I've looked around on Cults and I've come up empty, and my own attempts to 3D model a head based on my 2D artwork are uh...
    Let's just say not pretty.
    Can anyone help a brother out?
