    No. This is one of my items. The MST banner is just because I used their product image of Megatron, and didn't want to spend the extra 10 minutes to remove it.

    That's cool. I had no idea it was possible to 3d print clear plastics.

    Yeah, there's clear acrylic you can print with. That's how I'm doing the head domes on the Sentinel Guards and blast effects.

    The clear piece in the render is a stand in for an arm segment from these stands, that a lot of Legends collectors use:
    61jaM4d0Q1L._AC_SL1500_.jpg

    The base is designed to use one of those arm segments if you already have one of those stands, or I'll have a printed piece available to use if you don't have one of those stands. The printed piece might also be hollow if I can pull it off, so that you can run wires through it if you want to put an LED inside of Vector Sigma.

    It's funny when I saw this on FB I instantly thought it might be one of yours for some reason!

    Looks awesome as ever.

    You're making blast effects too? Ooh, I'd definitely buy those.

    dx9, mst, & na:

    dx9_mst_na_megatrouns.jpeg

    stacked:
    megatrouns_stacked.jpeg

    longest to shortest: dx9, mst, na
    handle perimeter, largest to smallest: mst (~11 cm), na (~ 9.75 cm), dx9 (~ 9.5 cm)

    Excellent news, DX9's Menasor can firmly grip any of these three guns (though NA without the stock, as it's too short to run past the forearm to elbow). So he can dual wield your megatrons of choice.

    which of the 3 alt-modes did it best?

    Compared to the real McCoy:

    I think MST comes the closest.

    I'd be curious to see them without the barrel extensions.

    My only wish is that I could use it on my phone but I don't feel like using a different mobile browser that allows extensions.

    Still, that extension is an amazing feature!

    Also, to stay on topic, I ordered myself a Megatron and Optimus from Show Z store. I don't have a tracking number yet but I should have them in a few weeks hopefully!

    Rockstar!

    I'm gonna have to go with NA on the sans slincer look. MST is just a little too stubby in the barrel department. Must be a cold day there.

    Anyone else still not gotten replacement chest parts after they received there’s the week it came out and it looked like a container of glue was dropped on it?
