    Update 1: Quick update, he now has arms. More details in the comments

    So recently I have been thinking a lot about this un-produced animated power-master trailer from the all-spark almanac.

    I wanted to see if I could reproduce the design with only minimal modifications (as the voyager prime that would come with it would have been highly modified). This is where I'm at so far, I have completed the legs and their transformation to vehicle mode.

    I have also modelled and completed the engineering on the arms, and so am now just working on the wings and frame with the hoped of having this and my previous 2 projects all printed and painted by Christmas

    That’s awesome! Amazing job! Great to see some animated love! Any plans on making this available anywhere like thingiverse or shapeways?

    It's a pity we never got a proper toy out of this. It's kind of Galaxy Upgrade Animated Optimus Prime. But why Powermaster?

    Thanks man, I hope to make the files available somehow if I complete it, and ideally I'd keep the partscount low enough that I can produce a copy or two if people really want

    That'd be really cool, and a huge undertaking. I want to meet the hero who reproduces marauder Megatron

    Not really sure, that's just what the design was called in the season 4 info we got. Also has a touch of the RID prime to it if you ask me

    Oh yes. Hasbro should make a line like Studio Series for show characters who didn't get appropriate toys or a toy at all. Marauder Megatron would be so darn awesome. "Just take my Money". And I'm still wanting a TF Prime Airachnid with that spiderbot mode.

    No, I just made that up by the looks of it.

    Looks great so far, can't wait to see how this progresses :thumb 
    For the record (Since that image keeps popping up in reference to Powermaster Prime), that's a picture of Wingblade OP's vehicle mode, the PM version has a firetruck ladder

    Other pieces of concept art show him with a power master, noted as "Micron Accessory"

    A quick update for anyone interested, I did a test print on the arms. The mounting mechanism works really well and the joints are sturdy with the exception of outwards shoulder. I also think that his arms are a good size for the style but just sitting too low. Basically I gotta work on the shoulders, but I'm almost done with the wing pack too (at least the first draft of it) so the goal is a complete first draft by next weekend.

    Thanks man, that's high praise, but maybe save that for if I get the damn thing finished.

    I've purchased some PTU rubber filament. Tonight I will be printing the wings, and tomorrow the ladder and backpack and the PTU will be used to create tight joints that hopefully will not wear out as well as PLA normally does (inner shoulder, red of the elbow). An entirely finished prototype by Saturday night is possible. I'm also lowering the front bumper, thinning it out and adding a bit of hip skirt to bulk out the waist

    Looking forward to seeing how this goes, one thing I noticed though is that the jet intake-ish detail you have added to the outside of the trailer is on the inside in the concept art. Did you do that on purpose or...?
