The goodest boy.
Will you ever make a beast wars uprising emperor imperious delirious head? No one has made one yet and I have always wanted one
New in the Shapeways store, Cap'n Beakamax, a postapocalyptic cyborg mutant video pirate vulture, and his less augmented minions and the Frogs of War, including the #eyepatch-waring Terror #Toad, the tongue-lolling Sad Froggerson, and that third one, lets call him Steve.
Available for MegaConstrux, BattleTribes/Glyos and MOTU-scale 5.5" action figures.
These and many more are available here.
I'm a few test prints off from being able to make printable bodies compatible with the Mega Construx heads. Due to limitations with Shapeways (particularly in regard to sprue thickness) the full Mega Construx articulation isn't viable, but I'm pretty sure I can produce a six point figure (hips, shoulders, waist, neck) where any of those given parts can be swapped for their MegaConstrux counterparts and visa-versa.
Once those parts are verified, a lot of my larger 3d printed figures can be down-scaled and rearticulated for this format, and I can start making articulated Combat Creature kits you can customize with easy part-swaps. Suggestions and ideas for that are welcome, and I'll be sure to post when commissions are on the way.
Ok you are TOTALLY speaking my language with these! These are gonna be great! Also the Halo Brute parts are a good start for limbs for battle beast style figures.
New in the Shapeways store: The Transformers Forged to Fight Star Saber in 3mm, 4mm, and 5mm grips, and four different options for replacement blasters/barrels for Transformers: Siege Blowpipe / Caliburst, including the Star Saber, Key to Vector Sigma, and Sixshot!
The connector for the Blowpipe barrels has been tested as part of a commission for TFExpo that needs to stay under wraps for now:
All the new releases are here.
You really make some cool stuff
Curious if the autotrooper head would fit the Fall of Cybertron Jazz...it fits the new siege line better than potp Jazz and really want to make 3 of that mold into troopers.
Do you have a measurement on FOC's neck balljoint? That an a photo of the space the head sticks in vehicle form (preferably with the head removed) and Ic an estimate that.
Well crap. Id actually never took his head off before. Turns out im gonna need a head and a neck joint. The ball joint is attached to his head. I have no measurement tools but im looking to get some. Any recommendations for tools? Here is a pic of foc jazz head though.
Best tool is a set of digital calipers, in my experience.
Today's new item:
A commission from the forum, I presume for the Crossovers Millennium Falcon, Solo Blaster 5mm action figure weapon, available in your choice of material/color (including real metal options!) with and without Transformers:Siege energy effects!
picked one up today...got 2 different readings 3.97mm and 4.04mm so I am gonna go on a limb and say its 4mm. Saw someone had a 4mm neck adapter for head to body joint...may go ahead and give this a go...
@Trentulas Do you have any plans to make a Blowpipe/Caliburst adaptor like these...
...but with a 5mm port that would fit TR Slugslinger's off-white blaster on the front of that body buck in gun mode? And, if not, what would the commission price be for making one?
I don't really have anything like that planned, were would you want that port? And are you talking adapting the existing guns or a new one?
Sorry for the delay in reply, Trent, but I needed to get some snaps to better illustrate what I'm blathering about. I've put together a wee custom toy-colours Caliburst using a blowpipe and an Aimless pats-swapping, and was messing about trying to figure out if there was a way to integrate TR Slugslinger's single-barrelled gun onto his gun mode.
And, whilst messing about, I realised if I could add a 5mm port about in-line with the Blowpipe components short barrel tip, then I could create a "proper" G1-homage gun mode for Homebrew Caliburst.
I went back to the bits after your reply, tape measure in-hand...
...so if you were to design a backplate with a 5mm port that is 15mm distant from where the Battlemaster feet are pegged in (with 3mm or less of material in front of the peg due to the rectangular projection at the front of the off-white blaster) it would work as a TR Slugslinger Battlemaster Caliburst adaptor to create a more G1-homage gun mode using one of the TR figures weapons. Having had the tape measure out now and realising the limiting factor of the rectangular projection I wonder if it might end up too fragile due to that, and so it may not be feasible.
I do also worry that an alternate single-barrel conversion method might be something that undercuts your mystery TF Con project?
That's...actually pretty clever. I think his project might have something to do with Movie Breakaway, because of the cyberkey-compatible part. One could easily do a powermaster for the figure using the port.
Dunno if you're still doing TR faces, but any chance of doing a Wings Universe version of Flame War? I have an extra TR Hot Rod I have laying around, and figured I might kitbash it into her.
...did you mean to post this here?
Dang it i clicked wrong thread lol
