    I love Nightbeat for nostalgic reasons. I always thought Generations Nightbeat needed a proper G1 style chest. Beezleboss one is nice but its $30 unshipped, reportedly didn't screw in right in some cases, did not further lock down his chest in bot mode effectively, and not G1 enough for my tastes. Although, I did admire their decision to make his chest look like an actual chest. So based on G1 and a few of the cues from beezleboss, I designed and printed a new chest that looks more G1 and fits the way Nightbeats chest should have from the beginning.

    Picture 35.jpg
    The gun is Gen Arcee/Nightbird's. I just thought it looked nice on him and it can store on his 'boot' as it should. The Autobot sticker is from Reprolabels.

    Suggestions for changing/refinement etc are welcome!

    Although I have tested it extensively on my Makerbot 3D printer, I have not tested it with Shapways. So, act now and you can get it on Shapeways at cost!

    Not currently... Did you have something in mind? :) 

    Minerva perhaps?


    I haven't made it public yet but I will soon. I have a bunch of other stuff I'm working on in parallel.

    Looks nice, but the Beelzeboss kit is well worth the price tag. I bought it and have no issues, I also bought a different chest piece and torso extender for him prior to the Beelzeboss kit actually being released. I'm currently painting mine similar to that chest piece

    This is still my favorite Nightbeat chest design. I hope you can fix the overall design and upload it to shapeways again.
