Anyone know if the mirage missile launcher swivels up?
I guess that explains why some people keep their 3D printer installed in a chemistry lab style fume cabinet.
More or less, though I wonder if its entirely warranted. I've seen people on facebook claim they have theirs on their desk and its really a non-issue.
I'm still bouncing around the idea of getting a Elegoo Mars Pro or the Pruisa Mini. I was set on the Pruisa, but now that I think about it, even with FDM there are plenty of people who claim it puts out deadly particles that will kill you, but I know from personal experience that the biggest threat with FDM, especially the cheap Chinese ones, is that they wont have safety features enabled in firmware, the hardware will spazz out, and the thing will catch fire.
So in that sense, the resin printers are actually much safer, as they are basically a phone screen, a specialized flashlight, some fans and motors, and a tiny computer.
Matrix Workshop upcoming upgrade kit for Generations Select Hot Shot:
Looks good but not sure about the quality.
Also, where is the knife?
I wonder if the rocket boxes are sized to fill in the holes in the back of the legs too ?
New prototype pics of the upgrade kit for Generations Select Hot Shot:
I like that. Pretty straightforward, but will help him look less like Hound.
I need those like yesterday. Was going to buy a kit from shapeways but it would’ve been twice the price of Hotshot himself
I hope they will continue doing kits for earthrise, Wheeljack needs a better shoulder launcher.
I got my Ratchet kit yesterday. Does anyone have any advice on getting Ratchet's hands off so I can use the new arm post? Those hands are on there!
Dammit, don’t make me want the Hot Shot redeco!
It's been almost a month as and I haven't gotten my order yet... is it suppose to take that long?
Context... Where did you order and have they sent you a shipping notice already? If so, you should have received a tracking number.
I ordered the jetfire antennae from tfsafari, I got a tracking number 4weeks ago almost. Just wondering if that's normal.
Just rotate them while pushing down, always works on my Ironhide.
What does your tracking number status say? Shipments coming from China can take anywhere from 2-6 weeks.
I just had that happen on a recent order from TFSafari.
It shipped on October 4th and got here around Nov 7th.
If you're worried shoot them an email. When I did they asked me to give it one more week to see if it updated and if not they'd dispatch a replacement order.
For context, I was getting orders from them within 14 days previously. This was apparently due to a holiday early in October gumming up shipping lanes. At least that's what they told me.
But like I said, for peace of mind, I'd recommend shooting them an email w/ the order number and asking. It can't hurt.
Ok I think I will wait more, thanks!
Got the make up freebie MW item in the mail today. Didn't expect them to fix the peg and port issues yet but purposely chose an item with one only peg to fix. Got the Abominus blaster, even though I don't have Abominus.
Has 1 peg, which is oversized again, and 6 ports, which are all undersized...again. So, you can't actually use it out of box like what the pictures show...yet again. The peg is a somewhat lesser issue compared to the ports. Forcing a regular 5mm peg into the undersized port will likely causing the 3d printed blaster to crack into multiple pieces. Forcing the peg into a port or hand may stress the port or crack the handle.
The peg is ~5.15mm x 3mm. Shaved down to around 5.03-5.05mm. Had to sand some of the painted handle since it wasn't masked correctly before they painted it. Used a 5mm drill bit by hand to expand all 6 ports (4.6-4.8mm) to 5mm proper.
Curious to see if anyone will ever get a kit that doesn't need some type of modding / fix...outside of Jetfire ears.
