    EDIT::: PLEASE NOTE, IN NO WAY SHAPE OR FORM , AM I ATTEMPTING TO AMASS AN ARMY OF TALENT TO BUILD MY DREAMS UP FROM THE GROUND , SO TO SPEAK . BUT AM SEEKING ANY KIND OF ADVISE FROM ONE IN THE KNOW TO THESE FIELDS OF CRAFT/SKILL SET.. IF MY POST IS OFF PUTTING, CONGESTED ECT - I APOLOGIZE BEFORE HAND... AND FYI, THE AMOUNT OF CONTENT i EXPOSE IN THIS THREAD PERTAINING TO THE PROJECT/S AND SO ON , IS PURELY INTENTIONAL , FOR THERE IS BUT A MINIMAL AMOUNT OF ACTUAL, HARDCORE FACTS/DETAILS... I`M SIMPLY PUTTING MY SELF OUT THERE IN CASE THERE ARE OTHER LIKE MINDED INDIVIDUALS THAT MAY STUMBLE UPON MY THREAD , AND HAVE SOME LEVEL OF INTEREST , IF NOT THAT`S TOTALLY FINE, JUST KNOW MY THREAD IS MADE TO BE WHAT IT IS INTENTIONALLY ... SO AGAIN , IF IT COMES ACROSS AS IN DISARRAY , AGAIN , I APOLOGIZE . CONTRARY TO HOW I MAY SOUND AT TIMES , I AM ONLY SEEKING IMPUTE,FACTS,ADVICE.. AND IF A PARTY IS INTERESTED IN SOME WAY ?, IT CAN BE FIGURED OUT LATER ON IF IT MAY BE THE CASE.. AND YES ! I AM FULLY AWARE , AND EXPECTING TO HAVE TO PUT FORTH MONIES IN UNSPECIFIED AMOUNTS FOR WHAT EVER MAY NEED TO BE DONE LATER ON , AS THE PROJECT/S PROGRESS ..THANK YOU FRIENDS FOR GIVING ME THE TIME OF DAY..AND YES, I AM SUPER STOKED ABOUT MY IDEAS.. BE PREPARED ..LOL.

    * I NEED MAJOR HELP ! ANY AND ALL IMPUTE, IDEAS, ART ,DIRECTION and ADVICE *
    Contrary to my having major ideas and wishes/wants , Any and all impute will make a ton of impact , probably change things as the project/s evolve ..So YES , I am half flexible in regards to just about anything , aside a few cherished Sub-group names ... I am utterly ignorant as to how to go about creating prototypes , with Completely original/new material( parts ) 3-D printing , direction and or help in regards as to how to go about Contacting and establishing a set contract with a MANUFACTURER , assembly line, Need help in regards to any one who knows there way around a design program , one specifically capable of physically manifesting my/your 3rd Party/SELF MADE G1 , SCRAMBLE CITY TYPE DESIGNS , as well as my BEAST WARS GESTALT CONCEPTS ....


    * CONCEPTS/IDEAS/GOALS/DESIGNS/PROJECT INFO I.E. SUBGROUP VEHICLE/ANIMAL/OTHER *

    I have 4 solid Gestalt/teams/SUB-GROUPS = Vehicles/Animals/other, I have many, many NAMES and partial BIO`s Conceptualized ., As well as Color schemes , Transformation sequences , General APPEARANCES ect ect .

    ****( SUB-GROUP NAMES, IDEAS , GESTALT AND LIMB BOT INFO/STATS ) ****
    ( 1 ) The SPACECON`S/GALACTICON`s/CELESTICON`s -- leaning towards `` SPACECON`s ! A 6 Bot team( SUB-GROUP ) ,An original G1 SCRAMBLE CITY TYPE COMBINER , But insead of Decepticon HEAT INSIGNIAS ( RUB SIGNS ) , I will be using BEAST WARS PREDACON HEAT INSIGNIAS , As well as PREDACON STICKERS , ( NEED HELP ON THE ORIGINAL STICKER front as well ? PLEASE , LOL.. This COMBINER is my first and main goal through out my venture into creating this NON-CANON story ark/characters , That revolves around the Time frame when AUTOBOTS transition in to MAXIMAL`s , And the DECEPTICONS transitioning in to the PREDACON FACTION ...
    As far as I know , there is no actual indeapth glance in to that portion of the G1 to BW era ?, if so ?, please reiterate ? .. But I have a story , full of characters and situations that take place during this time frame. And bbecause of the amount of transition going on , I INVISION G1 SCRAMBLE CITY COMBINERS , BUT AS PREDACONS ...... I have a Beast Wars type of gestalt , with BW TOOLING?/TRANSFORMATIONS?/APPEARANCES ? ...BUT AS AN AUTOBOT . And so on ... you get the idea ?, I hope ..lol.

    ( 2 ) The TOXICON`s -- A 6/7 member team , that utterly embodies the full concept of what it is to be a DUOCON, BUT A GESTALT simultaneously ...So 6/7 Toxic/POISONOUS ANIMALS , AS WELL AS THE VERY FIRST G1 TYPE PLANT BASED ALt mode , AND A Combiner bot to boot ...

    ( 1 ) SNAKE:NAME IDEAS-*SCALES/( TYPE UNDECIDED , MAY MAKE IT GENERIC/FANTASY TYPE OF ALT MODE? HELP ? -Legs/ARMS and TORSO ? BOTH ?
    ( 2 ) POISON IVY MONSTER:NAME IDEAS* BLOODROOT?/ ( PLANT ) ARMS/LEGS/BOTH?
    ( 3 ) SPIDER:NAME-*REDIPS* SPIDER SPELLED BACKWARDS ( UNKNOWN TYPE ) ARMS/LEGS/BOTH ?
    ( 4 ) EMPEROR SCORPION:NAME IDEAS:*WHIP-LASH,DEVIL STRIKE?/DEATH GRIP? OPEN TO SUGGESTIONS ?ARMS/LEGS/BOTH?
    ( 5 ) CENTIPEDE:NAME-*CENTIGRADE*( VERY FIERY PERSONALITY WITH THE WEAPONRY TO BACK UP HIS NAMESAKE ;)  ) ARMS/LEGS/BOTH?
    ( 6 ) JELLYFISH:NAME-*WETDEATH?/PISS-DIVE?/

    This is quite the list , but I`m just so discombobulated in regards as to how these guys function as a unit...?...
    THE G1 , ROBOTIC ANIMAL ALT MODES DO NOT TRANSFORM IN TO INDIVIDUAL ROBOTS ( THIS IS HOW i ENVISION IT CURRENTLY, AND TBH, KINDA LOVE IT.. BUT I`M OPEN TO IDEAS?
    THE G1 ROBOTIC ANIMALS WORK AND FUNCTION MUCH LIKE THAT OF * G1 TAKARA , LANDCROSS * WITH NO INDIVIDUAL BOT FORMS,( AS OF NOW ANY WAY .)
    BUT EACH TOXICON ANIMAL TRANSFORMS INTO EITHER A TOP OR BOTTOM HALF OF A G1 DUOCON TYPE OF COMBINATION .... SUCH AS THE SNAKE TRANSFORMING INTO A WAIST LINE AND A SET OF VERY SCALY LEGS ( LMFAO ! )AND , SAY FOR EXAMPLE , THE EMPEROR SCORPION WOULD TRANSFORM INTO A A TORSO, HEAD ( ? ) AND ARMS, COMBINING WITH THE SNAKE , SERVING AS WAISTLINE , HIPS AND LOWER LEGS/FEET. THE SNAKE COULD EASILY BE MANIPULATED IN TO A WAIST , WITH THE SNAKE BASICLLY , BENDING IN A CONTINUOUS ANGLE, EITHER TO A FAR LEFT/OR RIGHT .. LEAVING THE CENTER OF THE SERPENT EXPOSING JOINTS OF SOME NATURE , SO THAT THE SNAKE CAN BE BROKE INTO ( DEPENDING ON HOW YOU LOOK AT IT ?) 4/7 SEGMENTS ...WAIST,THIGHS,SHINS,FEET.
    AGAIN, THE LIST BELOW IS QUITE LENGTHY , BUT THEY ONLY SERVE AS OPTIONS/EXAMPLES .... ALL I NEED , IS TO SIMPLY CHOOSE ALL OF THE LIST ABOVE , DISMISSING THE ROCK SCORPION, OR VICE-VERSA AND ADDING ONE OF THE OPTIONS BELOW, BUT AGAIN , AS STATED PRIOR , i WOULD LIKE TO CREATE A 7L BOT TEAM IF POSSIBLE?
    SO MAYBE 2 FROM THE FOLLOWING LIST?

    POSSIBLE ?( 7 ) DESERT ROCK SCORPION:FLAT-BACK?/KILLSTRIKE?/
    POSSIBLE?( 8 ) WASP ( JAPANESE HORNET/TARANTULA HAWK?)
    POSSIBLE?( 9 ) TREE FROG ( DART FROG ?)
    POSSIBLE?( 10 ) GILA MONSTER?
    POSSIBLE?( 11 ) ?
    SO , I WANT A G1 ,PREDACON ,7 BOT TEAM/SUB-GROUP, CONSTRUCTED IN THE LIKES OF DEVASTATOR/LIO KAISER/RAIDEN IN MIND., MORE SO DEVASTATOR , IN THE SENSE THAT THE MERE APPEARANCE OF HIS COMBINED FORM BRINGS TO MIND , JUST HOW MIX MASHED , UNORGANIZED HE APPEARS -HES IN UTTER disarray , AN INCOMPLETE PUZZLE, THAT IS SOME HOW AN IMPERFECT TYPE OF AWESOMENESS AND PURE INSANITY DRIVEN POWER ;) ..LOL.

    ( 3 ): THE MYTHOBOT`s
    A 4 BOT COMBINER , DESIGNED IN THE FASION OF THE FIRST AND SECOND WAVES OF TRANSFORMERS BEAST WARS , MUCH TO THE LIKES OF MAGNABOSS/TRIPREDACUS/TRIPLEDACUS/MAGNABOSS II ..
    BUT WITH FOUR MYTHOLOGICAL CREATURES , REALISTIC IN APPEARANCE .... THE MYTHOBOT`S ARE AS FOLLOWED ............

    ( 1 ) DRAGON( UNKNOWN AS TO IF IT WILL BE AN ASIAN TYPE, WESTERN TYPE OR A WYVERN ( GAME OF THRONES ) TYPE ?
    ( 2 ) PEGASUS: TEAM LEADER: MAIN BODY OF GESTALT.
    ( 3 ) UNICORN:SMALLER , LIMB BOT FROM ITS EQUALLY HORSE LIKE COMRADE .
    ( 4 ) GRIFFIN/Ursagryph ( UNDECIDED AS TO WHICH ONE? , UNLESS SOME ONE HAS OTHER SUGGESTIONS ?

    * I HAVE SKETCHES, DRAWINGS,BOT CONCEPTS, NAME IDEAS ECT*

    I HAVE PAGE AFTER PAGE OF BOT/VEHICLE /CREATURE illustrations, BOT AND SUB-GROUP NAMES, IDEAS ECT ... BUT I NEED ANOTHER MIND OR 3 , TO DIVERSIFY MY CONCEPTS, TO UNIVERSALIZE THE SITUATION A BIT. ;) 


    *

    so, again , with out congestion ....
    1. SPACECON`s and or GALACTICON`s/CELESTIACON`s ( G1, SCRAMBLE CITY STYLE COMBINER )
    2.MYTHOBOTS ( BW type COMBINER )
    3.TOXICON`s ( G1 , DEVASTATOR,RAIDEN,LIO KAISER TYPE OF COMBINER )
    4.SWAMPCON`s/SWAMPBOT`s? ( maybe a fusion of a G1 and a BW type of hybrid combiner , something along the lines of ( slightly, sort of ) The TRANSMETAL`s ? IDK .. just an idea .. open to suggestions?
    5.? OPEN TO IDEAS ... WOULD LOVE TO CREATE A DEVY/RAIDEN/LIO KAISER-( MAYBE EVEN MONSTRUCTOR )TYPE GESTALT, WITH VEHICLE ALT MODES ,WITH A MAXIMAL FACTION ( AND YES , i WILL/WOULD USE BW MAXIMAL HEAT INSIGNIA`S ( RUB SIGNS ) .I guess I`ll get there ...

    * I AM DEADLY SERIOUS ABOUT GETTING THIS PROJECT STARTED ,AS WELL AS COMPLETED*

    PLEASE DON`T LEAVE OVERTLY RUDE , AND OR OUTTA THE WAY DEROGATORY AND DISRESPECTFUL , COMMENTS, IDGAFF ( FORGIVE MY CRUDENESS ) IF FOR SOME REASON I MAY RUB YOU WRONG, AND OR YOU FOR SOME REASON , FEEL / THINK MY POST/THREAD IS RIDICULOUS , STUPID , WASTE OF TIME --- OR `WHAT EVER` YOUR REASONING MAY BE --- I`M ASKING IN A RIDICULOUSLY POLITE MANNER , JUST DON`T BE A HATER ;)

    Not trying to be rude but there are lots of people out there who want to be the "idea man." What's rare is the talent to make them into anything more than ideas. Rather than fishing for people to make your ideas a reality, you'd be better served to try to learn how to do it yourself. To that end, may I suggest taking up 3d modeling? There are programs or there that are free to use: I use Blender but my personal recommendation is Fusion360 - last time I checked it was free for student and/or hobby use and you only have to pay for it if you start using it to make more than a certain amount of money a year (can't remember the amount - never looked into it that closely).

    Next, research design theory as much as you can. Both general action figure design and transformers design as well. I'm not really sure what resources are out there but I'm sure you can find some general action figure guides.

    If you're able to get partway there at least, you're far more likely to find interested parties to join you.

    I agree with Snaku. I, for example, am able to do all you just described. What would be my motivation to do all that work for your vision? Because it is a lot of work. I have my own ideas, and that’s mostly why I don’t make them a reality; I just don’t have the time. So, basically, you’re asking someone else to do the heavy-lifting with the promise of a joint venture. If you want to bring your ideas to reality, I’d suggest you hire a someone to design them for you if you’re unwilling to learn.
    Also, I know you’re excited, but try to be more discreet about your ideas. You gave away a lot.
    Good luck!

    WOW! I must have led some in to thinking I am wanting folks to do this for me, if you notice, I list off what I am ignorant to , and blatantly , clear as day as far as I`m concerned ? if I`m wrong my bad , but instead of posting these negative , preconceived notions , you probably could have asked me to reiterate ? regardless, my post is ment to hopfully locate folks in the know , in regards to what I have to do ... I am with out a doubt , utterly ignorant as to how to go about any of it ... So let me help you 3 understand that it is in fact EDUCATION i am seeking from sincere , like minded individuals , that may be could suggest design programs that are more simple to use and or navigate ?, Also , looking to get "EDUCATED" in how and who I can contact to achieve my project ... IN NO WAY , AM i ASKING ANY ONE , TO DO MY WORK FOR ME - LET THIS ABSORB PLEASE ? and for the love of any God , stop restating the obvious , for I was clear in my original post...
    And thank you Snaku for the awesome suggestion , for , again , that all I seek... my speech in regards to providing any one who helped me , as you just did , if you where interested , I would with out any doubt provide you with a sample, out of appreciation , as well as seeking advice in regards to design, execution ect... so , truly , THANK YOU DEARLY for the help.

    heltskelt
    - I Have every intention of spending money , I don`t understand why you would think I simply put fourth an attempt to amass an army , to create,build my ideas , and me not invest and or attempt to obtain the information I need to know I am doing it right ... I honestly detest the over all outcome of my having posted this thread ( that`s on me ) In my mind , you can`t have regrets , so there fore one must throw them selves in to unknown territory , take chances, any and everything to at least say - you honestly tried ....But I absolutely love the fact you ( btw ,for no real reason I can see? ) filled me in on the fact you posses the knowledge I so direly seek ?, but yet ,for some reason dangled it above my head in such a way that can only be perceived, even just slightly? ,as ridiculously , unnecessary to even be addressed ,for in no real way is it relevant to anything , just a character flaw type of statement Were cool though , it`s not hard at all to misconstrue , and or be misconstrued by others , just slightly harsh in a sense , IDK , I`n no way am I too thin skinned to handle any type of blunt, brutally honest feed back ?,for tbh , I seek absolute honesty , and I return the respect when its given ...It`s just that there`s such a thing called TACT , Again though, It`s unclear to me as to why you felt the need to make sure that I understood that you too, have ideas , ok? cool? regardless , one could perceive that as simply dismissing me and or my post, as if my words are unimportant , or what ever the reason ? an odd display of
    facetiousness ? Idk ., But its a no brainer that all of us here , specifically in this particular section of the site ,redefining the saying " cup runneth over " with creative ideas, especially considering the fact that most posts pertain to something not unlike my post here . I honestly would have been overtly appreciative had you and I engaged in a fashion , that most of us do-one Transfan to another , But I digress- A simple, miniscule suggestion directing me towards the `THE START LINE `so to speak , it would have made an entire world of difference . And Btw , my level of visible love/longing for this project to begin moving forward,even in the slightest, is in no way a subject of substance to feel the need to call me out in the most polite, strangest way possible ? , but thank you for pointing out that what I need , is to seek "education ". , which by the way , is exactly my reasoning for having taken the leap of faith to make this post , and put my self out there... ;)  I figured that by my clear as day post , explaining that any and all comments negative in nature should be kept to ones self , and if you have a rebuttal in mind , In regards to * EDUCATE ME " further , buy possibly ( ?)telling me how wrong I am in regards to my reactions to the 3 posts I received , it`s over , I still get how or why you may have felt inclined to ( maybe in your mind ?) attempt to shake me awake in some way , make me aware of whats in front of me? Idk , but were cool. But , seriously , if you feel compelled to reply , and it Isn`t friendly advice ect , then please lets just not ? Last but not least , your having remarked about the amount of material I opened up about , was 2 things .. Absolute, unadulterated apathy - If some one sees my thoughts and feels compelled enough to react, and use any and all of what I disclosed , then have at it.. the mere finalization of one/2 of said projects is the only thing I truly care for .. Who doesn`t need money , life can be a challenge .. but I see it as though my dreams would come to fruition in some way or another ... Especially if I for some reason falter/fail in my attempts . And (2) I have nothing but pride in this material , and would feel honored having my concepts recognized , even if said thief intends to and succeeds in making a profit some how , Idk why , but I`m not to bothered by it. Tbh, beyond proud of them, and would be beyond flattered if taken notice by a passerby/Site member ect.... Not to mention , I had intentional misleading statements/words / names ... I omitted about 90 percent of what I actually have conceptualized . ;) 

    Artork312- Again , In no way , contrary to how I may have come across in regards to my levels of interest , and or a possible overuse of Verbs ? when some one posts condescending comments ,as if spoken to like a child, intentional or not , it absolutely comes across as patronizing, I`m not 7 years old , nor am I in Grade school, nor am I in need of a stimulant . suggesting ( by misconstruing ( some how ? ) the way I worded ,presented my self via post) that I merely just need to drop the world, and some how read the nuance of an industry , and everything inbetween, All the while, not ask questions , but see , asking questions is how you learn , to whole heartedly run,jump head first into a situation , attempting to scan, evaluate , process the going ons , while spending monies , ect ect - That to me is absolutely insane . I`ll ask the dumbest of questions sometimes in others eyes , but to me , your only dumb if you don`t ask questions ... it`s a major form of growth and development , and in relation ,there`s only one way to speak as well as present yourself , and that is non other than HONESTY (I it`s purest form )


    Lets not continue this, please ? but at the same time , in some way , I appreciate you all even taking the time out of your personal lives to comment on my modest thread . TY!

    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! PLEASE FOLKS , I AM MERELY TRYING TO OBTAIN OTHERS , WHOM ARE FAMILIAR WITH STAGES, PROCESS ECT in side a 3erd Party operation/And or advice from any and all Toy designers whom have worked with/for Hasbro ect ... I am not interested in getting others to do any thing , all I want is the chance to have PERSONAL experience`s , Best materials to be used , prototypes , how to contact a manufacturer ?, price estimates , who is trust worthy, reliable , who to absolutely avoid , are there any scammers out there looking for folks like my self to financialy r*p*?
    ANY AND EVERYTHING is what I seek, and if you share interest in my ventures , the more the merrier :) 

    I will not respond to any further posts that in noy way relate to my adventure.. Will NOT REPLY TO ANY FURTHER DEROGATORY POSTS, REMARKS OR UNRELATED ?`S ...
    SO AGAIN , I ASK AS A FELLOW TRANSFAN TO ANOTHER ?, IF YOU HAVE ANY ADVICE ECT TO THROW MY WAY , ANY THING AT ALL , PLEASE FEEL FREE TO RESPOND, HIT ME UP ...

    Thank You greatly for having shown the interest to take a gander at my humble thread ... I look forward to hearing from you friends . :)

    Making toys, especially ones that transform us extremely time consuming and very expensive. You could design and make a 3d printed one out of resin. Resin however won't give you the flex that plastic has. Resin shrinks a bit too so you might have to rework where parts meet. I d say it's a two years project and couple of thousand invested. Also if you want to do casts. The parts have to be designed so they can be casted. Silicon offers more flex than a steel mold so you can get away with a bit when it comes to draft angles. However you d probably need a pressure chamber to remove the bubbles. 3d resin printed parts have to de designed so they can be printed upside down. So be prepared so lots of headaches.

    My advice: focus on one toy. Research how toys are made. They use surfacing softwares for the most part like fusion, rhino etc...

    I m working on a toy of my own and I can tell you it takes many many hours

    Ok but just to let you know the tooling for toys is very pricy. Think 100k usd.
    Its obly worth it if you made thousands of units. The alternative is casted parts but as some know it's better for static models. Plastic is not brittle like resin can be. I might be wrong but I think the minimum investment to get a toy made would be around 150/200k usd. As far as I know mold maker charge 200usd an hour for consulting. However if you decided to make non transformable figures which can be casted then a resin printer + casting equipment would run you about 3000usd (cheaper if you can print on a anycubic photon) so unless you have deep pockets, make a static one

    1. Would lead 3d modeling
    2. Invest in a 3d printer
    3. Test prototype
    4. Finished prototype
    5. Find company to produce it
    6. Or create the mold and you produce a short run.
    I have design 3d model for my toy and printing them out. Not an expert, but it's fun trying stuff out. I would not get discourage if u failed. That's were you learn from. Practice, practice and more practice. Come up with a schedule on time, design, print, etc. Follow tutorials even if for something that not interested in. That's how you develop skill for other task. Have fun.

    Thank you very much , you have no idea the timing in hearing you say that. Super helpful... I just wonder were one specifically , might be able to put themselves into a purposeful setting/scenario to gather possible positive interest , ( I do NOT expect any and all to just conform to my specific idea , I`m beyond flexible .I just need a few specifics...I can and will do this for my self, but it seems the best outcome ends with me owning multiple copies for personal, and leaving me with extras, I figure ,maybe there's a person or three , somewhere, out there with similar interest not so much unlike that of my own ? Just let me know ? And you could convey wants/interests ect to me in the midst of the over all creative process , and on into the later fazes /finished products ect …It Could be a nifty G1 Style ,Scramble city type of Combiner/s bot/s ? A pet project, A random thing, souvenir , or just even out of curiosity ?- Do it as a Why not? ..LMBO... just being silly folks, its been a long day ..But yeah , Again , thank you deeply :)  Truly .

    What is it you exactly want to do? Some people would not advice or help they may see you as competition. You can get some one to design and pay for it. But it will be costly. For printing can test print in shapeways. But again it will be costly. What is your skill in 3d drawing? Exactly what is it your trying to do?
