    I couldn't afford to swap out all three of my MP-11 Seekers, so I bought Maketoys Starscream and kept MP-11 mold TC and SW. They always annoyed me with their stupid feet though, so I designed a replacement "rankle" assembly for them. Looks better, poses better, the whole 9. These will be in my Shapeways shop soon if anyone is interested.

    Yeah. Nothing about the positioning or function of the feet has changed.

    Awesome. Going to buy three sets of these.

    Now if you could just fix that waist. :) 

    Do you think Black for Skywarp and Thindercracker and Grey for Starscream?

    Shapeways unfortunately doesn't have a grey option for some reason... You'd need to go with black or white. But you can always paint them too, which I'd recommend.

    @ultraman zoffy
    Is it possible to take a closer look the upgrade parts and how they stall?

    I had done some upgrades to my SW and Dirge long ago....but none of my parts we’re 3D printed But was looking to see if a swivel could be incorporated...but never got around to it. But this looks promising so I’m interested to see how it works :)  thanks
