I am definitely awaiting this project eagerly!
I'm very happy to see that the Minicon port was added. That way Wing Saber can carry the plugs around with him like fuel tanks or bombs.
The V2 Incrediplugs came in and I'm happy to say that they're a complete success. The plastic is very strong--almost stronger than the actual CW Prime figure--and the ratchets work very nicely. Here's configuration one...
... and configuration two.
Unfortunately it's hard to stand in either mode due to Prime's crappy hips; I think someone's already working on a fix for those. The feet don't help, but that's a decade-old problem.
Here's how I've decided to store mine aboard Wing Saber: one underneath the cockpit, the other on a 5mm port on the leg.
There's a way to store them in robot mode as well: two can go on the turbines next to the neck and the other two can store in the open slots behind the feet. I'll take a picture of that when I get a chance; I also want to see how these work as Superion limbs.
Finally, here's a side-by-side comparison. You can see that the V2 plug on the right is longer than the V1 and has the Minicon peg.
I bought an energon wingsaber just because of these plugs!
Thanks for the review, Astrakhan! I will be taking new orders starting Monday.
First post updated!
First post updated (again)!
These plugs are fantastic!
So how's the extended knees going so far?
Hi Shum. Doing quite well actually. I should have a release candidate soon. I'm waiting on the proper screws to get to me, plus I'm doing some final tweaks. Originally, I didn't want to mess with a ratcheting knee joint. I had two other concepts, but they didn't pan out. Prime was too top heavy, and he kept bending over backwards at the knees. With the ratcheting knee joint, this isn't a problem. However, while CW Prime is fine with his drones in official Hasbro transformation, with Wingsaber he falls backward, not at the knees, but due to added height, and of course his top-heaviness. One way to alleviate this, is to turn his legs around, and have the wheels facing forward. This shifts his center of gravity to a better spot. However, I am pondering a heal extension to add to the rear of Wingsaber's turret for those who like CW Prime to be in his official Hasbro transformation with the blue sections of Wingsaber as legs.
Here's a teaser in the rough.
Thanks very much Zendai!
Looks great so far. If I purchase these, could you make an minor alteration? To add a 5mm hole in the middle of the knee.
That depends on how deep you want the hole. The internal turning elbow moves in that area. So, there may not be much depth to support what you'd like to peg in. Also, depending on what you would like to attach, I'd have to do something with, or remove the knee cap shell (the thing with the wings). However, I could extend the front of the knee outward to provide more depth for what you want to attach.
Now taking orders for IncrediKnee, and IncrediHeel! Will start on most orders next week.
Let me know your specifications, and I'll see what can be done. It depends on clearance of what you would like to attach. The nice thing about 3D printing, is things are changeable to a point.
Latest Order! You can see how much bigger the dedicated knee joints are compared to the IncrediPlug Classic joints.
The IncrediPlug Classics have a spring, and gear in the swivel. This is good for shoulders when you want your figure to hold a weapon at a certain angle.
The IncrediKnees have the spring, and gear in the bendable knees to hold a certain position when the figure needs to hold a bent knee leg pose. It still swivel's at the top, but does not have a spring in that area, relying on the friction in that swivel. The leg can turn in and outward.
Nice symbol on the knees.
