    DW1.jpg DW2.jpg DW3.jpg DW Missing Handle.png DW Missing Handle 2.png DW Missing Handle 3.jpg So I found a Prime Universe Legacy Dreadwing today. Bought it. Opened it up. Checked to make sure everything was there ...

    It wasn't. It's missing a handle piece in the gun. I've already looked in the box again to see if it just snapped off, and I have a photo (blurry though it is) to show that it came packaged like that.

    My usual toy site of choice doesn't have him in stock, and Amazon is charging a markup for him (same as it was ever was) so I can't really get a replacement without spending even more money than I already did for him.

    But I do have access to a 3D Printer. Only, it's my roommate's 3D printer, and I don't 3D print much, so I wouldn't know what the specifications would be to replace the missing part. Can someone help me with this?

    It's the ball joint handle that's supposed to let him hold the gun with two hands. I've attached photos of my copy and photos from the TFW2005 boards with highlights showing the missing piece.

    I had a few spare minutes so I copied mine. It's simple and rough but it should do the trick, the important measurements match. Download and print it, your roommate should know what to do. If anyone wants to take the file and add more detail, go for it.
