    CW Rook > Strika!

    Shapeways link >> Strika Head for CW Rook

    Hi Guys, i've been working on some things for a while now and I have something that I think that there seems to be a fair bit of call for

    Basically we have a head for CW Rook to change Rook into Strika!

    Now getting CW TFs in my area is stupidly hard, and on the 'bay they're stupidly expensive for deluxes...(it'd never pass my wife's looking at the joint account statement!) So I don't yet have a Rook in hand, so i've put it in beta - i'm just doing this for the boys (and girls :)  haha)

    The model looks great (in my opinion!)

    And this is just how awesome your Rook could be!

    I've made this straight away available on shape ways, and believe me I am making cents/pence on the markup of these as I just want to see the head out there and as affordable as I can for people :) 

    Shapeways:

    I'd love to see if people want to have a go with this and maybe get some feedback - that'd be great :D

    Hopefully going to get this on my next shapeways list - although as someone *cough* johnbonhamatron *cough* alluded to I have a LOT of things to print haha

    jame5y, great design! Could this design be upscaled? I'm currently tossing around ideas for a custom whose Combiner form would be a giant Strika... would love to have her noggin around the same size as Bruticus' or Superion's... (I will still be ordering a Rook-sized as soon as possible, for the individual leader-bot.) Thanks!
