    All limbs are scratch built from super thick styrene ....about as thick as foamboard but easy to work with...joints are the kind they use in Gundam models ...except these are sold by the parts tree

    Nice! I wonder how much Hasbro would charge for something like this? I would buy that.

    That's cool. Good luck, but sadly I'm willing to pay Hasbro's prices but probably not 3P prices.

    Understandable.....the actual plan is to offer it in several kits available from shapeways.....example being
    #1arms
    2legs
    3 lower body/tail
    4upper body..

    So a guy can order one kit at a time....then build it them selves
