    Got you covered. The space his head fits into is about 15mm wide, and his actual head is about 10mm wide minus horns, 14mm wide with horns. [​IMG] Wreck-Gar's head is also about 14mm tall, and about 10mm long (front to back), but with the way the Groove mold works you've got some space to make the back of a head a bit longer if needed, though there is a chance that a longer head would end up sticking out in Vehicle Mode/Combiner Leg mode. [​IMG] I can take some more pictures if needed, so just let me know if there is anything else I can do to help!

    I need two more measurements. I need to know the height from the base of the peg the ball joint is attached to (essentially the base of the 'neck' to the top of the torso-hole, and the distance from the base of that same neck to the top of the ball-joint.

    Certainly! Base of the peg to the top of the torso-hole is about 5mm, and same for base of peg to top of ball joint - also roughly 5mm. A headless Wreck-Gar looks like this:

    I'm a little envious of you, Trentulas. When I'd get requests, I'd never get proper measurements. Usually they'd request a kit for a figure/mold I don't have on hand.

    I just wanted to help out a fellow Shapeways designer. I had the figure sitting on my desk and just happened to see the last few posts of this thread as I was surfing through the Radicons so I figured why not? Keep up the great work Trentulas! :) :D

    New Titan / Prime Master Faceplates in the Shapeways store:

    For Large-than-Voyager types, we’ve got Robots In Disguise Megatronus, masked and unmasked, from a commissioned set. The unmasked version is a style-match to the G1ish face plates of Titans Return, and both were designed with Sky Shadow in mind:

    And in addition, Cybertron Soundwave, now available solo and as a 2-pack with Cybertron Sideways:

    They don't let us know about sales in advance, so unfortunately can't say accurately.

    Hmmm. Okay. I was going to get your Heatwave faceplate, but I figured I would get some more stuff if they had a sale.

    What material would you reccomend? I want the best detail, and the face is going to get attatched onto a head that will never really be manhandled so I’m not worried about it breaking.

    Smoothest Detail Plastic in that case. Prints clear with a slightly frosted patina, highest res material.

    I love that you can fit a Diaclone pilot inside!

    We're also going to have a budget kit that is 2" tall and doesn't have the opening hatch, but the whole idea was to make it work with the Diaclone-pilot Acroyear figure.
