    This is a new kit I've been developing for anyone looking for a complete* set of G1 Megatron parts. They're all scratch built in CAD and 3D Printed to the best of my ability. I might have these up for sale in a little while. Let me know if this is something you'd be interested in [​IMG]

    This is a complete set of alt-mode & weapon platform accessories for G1 Megatron! This set includes a 3-part Stock, Silencer, and Scope build, also 10x Firing Pellets (compatible with Japanese versions). These parts are designed to transform and function exactly like the original!

    These look really good. An almost perfect match to the original. I like the pellets.

    Also welcome to the site

    It may have a rougher surface due to the 3d print's nature, but I've got to agree that's an excellent reproduction of the original parts! Not only this becomes a new option to complete the look of some loose G1 Megs, but also open new possibilites to complete missing parts from other figures, not limited for G1 if we think about.

    Welcome to the Radicons community! And also, for your next works...

    Thanks! This is my first big project and it definitely opens the door to more possibilities. My current plans are to make cheaper replacement parts for the G1 toys. My next project will be Galvatron (his cannon, adapter, gun, etc.). After that I'm thinking about making some parts for the smaller Headmasters (Hosehead, Nightbeat, and Siren). With any luck, I can get this resin printer up and working to make nicer looking pieces.

    I take umbrage at the whole "this opens the door to new G1 parts" bit. People (myself included) have been making G1 reproduction parts with 3D printers for close to a decade now - the door has been open for a long time, it's off the hinges really.

    That said, these parts are a very nice reproduction. I see lots of details most wouldn't bother with.

    Bro...if I had the money, I would/ Me getting a Megat5ron was a bona fide miracle, as we got a belated b-day gift from a friend that allowed for it.

    That said: this set is very nice! Maybe someday when finances are better...
