Do you have a link for the feet? I hate the current magnus one and I kinda want the Kingdom Mags
Go Better finally posted stock pics of their Nemesis Primal kit, which is a recolor of their Optimus Primal kit:
The next Go Better kit is...replacement smokestack panels for MPM-12 Bumblebee Movie Optimus Prime. Their solution is to replace just the panel, and not the arm. These will most likely hit the market 1st (and very soon) compared to the other announced replacement arm sets. Go Better's solution for Neko Truck is to add an extra hinge. They also do a more accurate deco. This does require pin removal, however.
This is a video link of the MPM-12 kit:
Juqi is making a set of fillers for The Ark:
【Pre-Order】Juqi Toys JQ03 Gap Fillers for WFC-K30 Titan Class Autobot Ark Upgrade Kit
I don't have the Ark nor plan to get it, but after looking at stock Ark pics, I see where they go now.
Two large covers for the sides of the rear section, one cover for the rear of the bridge, and 4 cannons.
The ship will be wider.
Stores and fills in the calves area in bot mode.
As I was typing this, Sweetmall also put up a listing for these and a new LED eyes kit, which is different than the Shockwave Lab one. Also appears to have a magnet throw. Also has replacement lightpiping eyes / lens.

As for the MPM-12 panels, sweetmall already put up a pre-order with release in about 2 weeks. They also put up pre-orders for the Shockwave Lab Unicron eyes.
OK, even more stuff. It's like I hit refresh and more stuff keeps popping up.
Sweetmall posted a SS86 Slug / Slag set, which I think is also Juqi:

Feet gap fillers, choice of gold or silver horns:
I did want to ask, does anyone have suggestions for weapons for the new Retro Headmasters with their unique color schemes? I'm mostly talking about Brainstorm since I don't think I've seen a kit for him period, but I also know that Hardhead and Chromedome are missing weapons in their color proper.
got the go better sets for Dinobot, BW Megatron and huffer. accidentally broke part of the one of the thigh gap fillers for megatron but was able to put both pieces in and seal it with some floor polish, thankfully its on the back part of the filler, but it still bugs me
Excellent, those gaps were the biggest problem I had with the Ark, and why it took a nearly 30% off sale to get me to buy it; I would have been quite happy to pay full retail price if the basic design did not have those horrible holes in it. Very glad to see someone is tackling it.
Now, is this something I will need to order right now, or will it be safe to wait and see if anyone else (perhaps Go Better, I'm really impressed by their work) develops something similar for the Ark in the time it takes for this to be in stock?
Who knows. It's unusual that any of the 3d printing groups are attempting something of this size in the 1st place. I don't think it would hurt to wait a little bit anyways. Sweetmall-1 is saying Aug 20th for release while TFSafari is saying by end of month.
Of all the groups in general, I would've expected something from DNA Design first for add-on parts of this size. Granted they take forever to get something out to market.
Do you mean the ZX / MSS kit for Dinobot? I don't recall Go Better doing a Dinobot kit.
I for one am NOT looking forward to doing fillers for that Ark. All of the other fillers I've seen are such huge slabs, I'm kind of starting to question whether or not I should even attempt full on fillers.
As a friendly reminder, TFSafari's broken front page sometimes doesn't list new pre-orders / arrivals, which may be why people missed some kits they actually carry.
Their new updates page is more accurate:
Upgrade kits page:
Would be nice if they could update their menu, too. I went through their entire list of upgrades from that menu last week, or so I thought; it turns out that this company isn't even listed there. What else is being obscured in this way?
Since I recently received Kingdom Rodimus Prime I’d thought I’d look to see if there was any add on accessories/upgrades for him available yet. I found this flaming sword attachment for the Sword of Primus that he has on EBay. The seller also offers the same thing but in blue instead of orange. I didn’t buy it but thought it was cool enough to share.

I wanted to ask real quick, has any company made plans to make an upgrade kit for Kingdom Tracks so his legs have better stability?
The only option I've heard of so far is the kit from JRC and Robots '78, available from the JRC site and eBay.
Love @MegaMoonMan 's filler kit for Jetfire Generations vintage cheers fella for fixing his issues.
There were some leg panel locks listed right here just the other day.
If you mean something that connects the feet better, then I've not seen anything yet.
If you can make them combine into a shield for robot mode, though . . .
I think that's basically one of my only options. My biggest hang-up right now, besides not having the figure, is that I feel they need to do something, anything, besides just be a panel just because the sheer size they've got to be, but I won't really be able to work anything out until BBTS ships it out. What's probably going to happen is it will ship at the same time as Scorponok, so I'll have two titans to work on at once, which will be...interesting, space-wise at least. On the bright side, I was only doing smaller stuff for Skorponok anyways, I think the largest parts I had planned so far was a radar dish set, and I wanted to do a Headmaster-readout type thing too.
If you do go for it, see if you can reduce the parts-forming on the legs
