    First thing first, i ve to claim that the original idea belongs to a group of people i respect in deep of my heart, Headrobots. i just luv the figure & the idea of add-on with targetmaster so much, & feel lost if this fade away. so i did it myself & mean no offense to them.

    The models ve been test in WSF Polished, & after some issue, v2.0 is here including:
    - duo-sword which transform rotors
    - chest replacement piece
    - rotor wings

    The headmaster is order separately, including:
    - headmaster transform the new head
    - neck joint apdator

    Order links:


    Moreover, a commission job done recently to convert Skyhammer to airborne Megatron. You could order it at the following links:



    here re the pics FYR, Pls check the last page if u need installation guide of this set:

    i luv my skyhammer, but what really could make the figure better is a good set of guns, a two rotor version could be great but all the customs so far use parts forming, maybe using the 5mm peg holes on the arms to hold them and then make those rotor blades transform into something(a wolverine like blades or a railgun(made of the rotors folded) or something could be great, i do 3D but havent had inspirations so far XD)

    I had just commented the other day to a friend of mine that I thought Skyhammer would make a nice Highbrow. I think you have something going here, but reserve judgement until the final product.

    When Headrobots first announced their Savant kit, I ran out and bought a Skyhammer. I've held on to it all this time hoping that Headrobots would finally make it, so I am incredibly interested in how this'll go.

    14 Apr update:

    ::Installation guide::
    You need screw driver. Artwork cutter & super glue might need to fix the small parts, since inaccurate print may cause un-fit joint of peg.
    First of all, let s take out the original head & rotor.

    1. Turn Skyhammer to back side, put down the wing part so that you could un-screw as shown in the pic.
    [​IMG]

    2. Separate them & find the screw of the origin rotor. un-screw it & rotor out.
    [​IMG]

    3. Keep them in safe place if you will sold him in somedays.
    [​IMG]

    4. Place in the neck joint adapter. There is no front side or back side.
    [​IMG]

    5. About the chest plate, just plug it in.
    [​IMG]

    6. Screw the things back together, we re done here. Just plug-in the targetmaster head to the updater.
    [​IMG]

    7. Follow the pic if you find hard to hold your Duo-sword.
    [​IMG]

    8. Wings & blades could attach like this.

    Instruction of Targetmaster & blades is coming up.

    Very nice work, I still wish Headrobots would complete theirs. This is a great option if that never comes to life. Are you going to do a Mindwipe upgrade too?

    With a different head and chest plate, this might be an awesome way to turn Skyhammer into a Megatron with an homage to Animated. But still, an awesome looking set.

    Hi
    Got this the other day & it's great but did have two issues with it.

    First was the pin for the rotor blades. Great idea but the print on mine was no where near sharp enough to work with both the x on the pin & it's intended hole. Got it to work by using an alternate pin. This was my first shapeways order so I'm not sure if it's a shapeways standard issue or something that needs fine tuning.

    Second is I can't figure out how to transform the headmaster without removing the legs and reversing them. Any help?

    Love it overall and will post pics when painted up

    Cheers

    JL
