    Here's another fix part for Combiner Wars/Unite Warriors Devastator.

    This part reinforces the connection of Scrapper's shovel, which forms part of Devastator's foot. Normally, the shovel is locked with a single tab, which can fail and cause Devastator to no longer be able to stand. This part holds the shovel in place by wrapping behind Scrapper's head and holding the crossbar of the shovel arm with hooked ends. It simply snaps on and off.

    I currently don’t have any issue with mine, but from Day 1 of owning them my first concern was that tab breaking or wearing down. Nice simple fix!

    Yeah both of mine (I had CW and then swapped for UW) have been fine, but I've heard of it failing for other people which just sounds like a huge bummer, so I wanted to make this for those that need it.

    I could look into it. I would have to figure out the exact percentage it's been downsized.

    I'm looking for someone who has the undersized KO Devastator along with a digital caliper (for precisely measuring distances) and/or a 3D printer.

    I've had a few requests to create a version for the undersized KO version. But I don't own that figure, so I don't know what size it needs to be, and have no way to test-fit my part before I put it up for sale on Shapeways.

    If anyone here owns the undersized KO figure, and has a digital caliper and could help me get some measurements, or has access to a 3D printer and could print and test prototypes, please let me know. Thank you!

    The downsized version of this part is now finally available. Unexpected side-benefit: On my copy of CBB Devastator, Scrapper's head likes to fall down/out when he's in leg mode. This part keeps the head in place.

    The STL download now includes both sizes, and prints are available from Shapeways. Links in the first post.
