    This is astounding. I vote that the non-descript 3rd party figure name be Petita-1.

    But how many people own 3D printers? I’d wager not many. I thought about buying one, but I just don’t know how much use I’d get out of it. Now once I go to grad school, then I might use it more

    Agreed

    A lot of schools and public libraries have printers for general use. The quality may not be great, but for test run stuff? Probably okay?

    You'd be surprised how much use you get out of it, especially when you know how to design. For around $170 you can get a very decent printer, and a $20 roll of filament can last a long time.

    It makes me sad to see awesome designs like this go unshared - the nature of 3D printing is about being able to reproduce whatever anyone else comes up with. Not being able to take part drives me nuts.

    I applied, they turned me down

    I have plans for a velocity to go with my Arcee, but I have a few bits I gotta work on first

    Right now only a couple of my simpler designs are available as you've seen, the Shockwave armour and the Animated The Fallen Kit. I have not kept them to myself to bait the public, its just taking a design from "I can just about build one" to "people could fairly reliably build one" it an incredibly time consuming process, especially as there are often between 60-120 files. Then I need to do assembly instructions, transformation instructions and additional test prints for all my revisions. If getting to the stage you see here takes 60-80 hours then getting them ready to release is comfortably another 30, which means I often prefer to make more than wrap up the design fully (partly lazyness, mostly a desire to realise as many ideas as possible). That said, my Lugnut files are in final test printing phase, my IDW pipes design is in the instructions making phase and Star convoy is about to go for final test printing, so hopefully, all three of those will be made available in the coming weeks. The animated armour will be made available by the end of the year, it just needs heavy joint revisions as I've been working on it so long it has quite a bit of outdated engineering

    That's a shame. I just recently watched a good video on Hasbro's toy division and was shocked to hear it was only 30 some employees.

    I keep looking over these pics and I'm convinced that witchcraft is involved somewhere. ;)  Perhaps the engineering is beyond what HasTak would allow for budgetary reasons, but it would be great to see such an incredible design put into mass production one way or another!

    I guess he's too good for them. They would need to pay him actual money instead of the notes from unsold Monopoly games.

    Pretty sure the main reason they turned me down is I have an engineering degree not a design degree. Though I'm also pretty sure they never actually looked at my portfolio. I'm now doing some design work for MMC, so who needs Hasbro

    That's the way to go :thumbs2: 
    I hope you'll work on their Reformatted line. I love those designs.

    I apologies that was actually the wrong quote, I've corrected it now. But the actual answer is I've now glued many of the joints so she holds together and I gave her to my dad as he likes to keep the prototypes

    To my knowledge, there's no such thing as a separate "design" degree; everything Hasbro does in its toy department is Engineering.

    ...so... Is that why we don't have a video here yet? She up for an MMC figure now or something?

    Hehe... Partial kidding aside... Hope MMC commissions fare well for ya.
