    Updates! I test printed the sword and spoiler, Both of them failed! I'm pretty sure the spoiler's fine it's just the printer, But the sheath/scabbard for the sword needs to be bigger, I might also make the sword a bit thicker. I also might add blast effect ports but then I'd have to make the sword a lot thicker. Heres some updates for now.

    (The scabbard didn't print properly for some reason, and the spoiler melted on the bottom)

    Also since i didn't glue the sword together yet he can have the Prince Zuko dual Half-sword/Dao look, It's kinda fun so i might keep it like that.

    (also nonnef and trentroop have already some really nice kits/parts, so if i can't make mine as good as theirs i probably won't sell it)

    Fixed the wheels! (For like the 80th time) the last version was symmetical, But I didn't really like the lines running through it. So I redid them from scratch again, and they seem better now. Also something i forgot to mention in the previous post, What do you guys thing of the size of the sword, ie. Length, width etc.

    Sorry about that, I'll see what i can do once i'm done. That was the original version and since then i've re done the wheels multiple times so the cost might be a bit cheaper. (also shapeways tends to be kinda on the expensive side)

    Sorry, I can't really change how Shapeways prices things. I only make a dollar each set purchased even though I spent hours on this, I'd also rather not put it on thingyverse or my mini-factory. If you're that concerned about the price i already mentioned Nonnef has a much better version for $10 and if you just want the sword or wheels trenttroop and others have them on shapeways, I'm just doing this for fun so it doesn't really matter to me if anyone buys it.

    It's ok, I get that Shapeways is overpriced but it's because SLA printers are expensive and they want they have to make profit somehow. And as much as i'd like to sell it for cheap, There's really no way to do it. (I mean you've seen the price for Dr.Wu Upgrade kits right?)

    Awsome work, man! ;) 
    Will it be possible to attach the wheels like nonnef's via those hinges?

    Because shapeways is the current standard for selling 3d prints. Just cause you're not happy with the price doesn't mean that people should sell for cheaper.

    Otherwise, great work OP. I'm loving the look of this kit.

    Ok, I'm just saying it depends on if this was meant to make money, I think it's a good set just a little expensive

    That seems like a great idea! The only problem I see with that is the spikes on mine are a bit longer, So I’ll probably have to create a second version with shorter spikes.:D 

    Sorry, I’d rather not put them on thingyverse, I know I’d be easier for everyone else, But I kinda have a sense of accomplishment when someone cares enough to spend they’re money on a project I made. It’s not that I want to stop people from buying them, it’s just that I’d prefer to sell them.

    Thanks!:thumb
