    I was always disappointed with the fact that my Classics Sideswipe figure didn't come with his iconic shoulder cannon. I also missed out on the upgrade set for this figure and Red Alert released by Beelzeboss.

    Using my skills as a civil engineer, I picked up Autodesk Fusion 360 and got to work on my own solution, and it's now available on Shapeways for everyone to purchase!

    The cannon mounts on either of Sideswipe's shoulders in the 4.1 mm hole. Be sure to raise the shoulder slides as far as they can go so that there's enough clearance between the back of the cannon and the roof on Sideswipe's back. In car mode, the cannon stores on one of the roof's available slots near the windshield. See the pictures below.

    The kit has two pieces: The mount with the C-clamp and the cannon itself. You may want to pinch the C-clamp portion of the mount enough to deform it to make it fight tighter on the cannon, but be careful and don't break it!

    My stretch goal is to finish my design for a trailer for CW Optimus Prime and Motormaster, but this may be too expensive to put on Shapeways! Please note that I'm not accepting commissions at this time.

    Might you consider making replacement lower arms for Titans Return Cerebros that have retractable hands (or hands that fold in)? It could be done with a simple two piece design for each arm.

    Sorry I didn't notice this reply earlier! If you still desire a set for your Cerebros figure, please PM me and I'll see what I can do. I do have a Fortress Maximus figure to help me design that.

    I received a request from a TFW2005 member for Powerglide-Style Booster-Guns so that person could modify a CW Air Raid figure into a Powerglide combiner limb much like the one found here. However, I have found that this style of Booster-Guns looks great on Alpha Bravo as well. Perhaps he can now keep up with his jet brethren?

    The model is now complete and up for sale on Shapeways in pairs!

    It's been awhile since I've posted anything here. I moved into a new home this past fall and can now print stuff without risk of giving my whole family lung cancer (yay!). I am open to requests to print stuff, but here's stuff I can't do:
    • Anything other than print in PLA right now
    • Anything other than black and white PLA (plan on painting stuff if you want a different color)
    • Heads and face sculpts (I'm not that good at faces; not enough practice)
    • Anything bigger than 110x110x110 mm, otherwise it will have to be made in pieces
    I use a FDM printer, so there will be layer lines and probably sharp edges. I'm assuming these prints are going to adult collectors and not little kids, so you've been warned. I won't do any sanding or smoothing of parts unless it's necessary for part construction or for my own safe handling. I'll leave the finishing and coloring to you.

    PM me with what you want. Please send me dimensioned drawings of what you want. If you have an STL file and don't have a printer, I can print it for you. I'll let you know if I can do it and provide a quote that includes printing and shipping. Whatever I make or print will probably end up in my Shapeways store for sale if I feel like it.
