    Here is the Facebook page for it:

    3D printed biggest transformers

    blurb from DaimChoc's Facebook page:
    If you read through the Facebook comments, it cost him over $1000 to make the first one. Also, he said he is planning on doing Metroplex next. Based on the transformation video, it looks like a workout just to transform it!

    Impressive. I would say 1600$ is outrageous .....but I have owned TFC Hurceules, Superion and Warbatron Bruticus at one point.... 1800$ of pure crap.

    It's not big enough for me to wear it?

    Booooo!!!

    You'd have to shove a continent into the 3D printer's feed tray.

    I really want to buy this, but the resolution on his printer is pretty bad. You can tell in the close up shots. It is awesome, regardless.

    Impressive, but not something I could afford to waist money on.

    At 4 foot I wonder if a 1/6 figure would work.

    Pretty cool. Proportions on the legs look better than MP-10 but maybe I’m crazy.

    . It would be believable, but I think it would be too short. 1/6 would put prime at ~24ft and isnt he supposed to be ~30

    Well, a Metroplex at this size could work in an MP collection... I'm not personally in the market for that, but it would be the only way to have a "sort of" acceptable scale (still small, but acceptable).

    And probably lighter than the wooden one :D

    The design is based on MP10, not MP01, there's a transformation video showing it.

    The more I look at it... It looks like the upper part of MP-10 and the lower part of MP1. The moving hip skirts and Pistons in the knees are more like MP1

    Interesting that its MP-10 upper body and MP-01 lower body. At least I think it is.

    They should have upsized MakeToys Utopia tho.
