    Gestalts Upgrades
    Ran out of white filament to print my Star Saber so instead I went and do this based on my Star Saber thigh armors. I just couldn't find anyone doing this other than on shapeways and so decided to try my hand on making one. Tried doing so about a year ago and failed miserably, but I think it came out well this time

    First one done is
    Superion
    Wanted the design to be in between the non-detailed cartoon thighs + Zeta Toys Superion. These just plug into Silverbolt's 5mm forearm ports and then secured via friction on the inner thigh.

    Instead of thickening the inside of his thighs, I opted to thickened the outside, so the torso bot can also use them as forearm armor.

    Mind you, due to the pressure applied to the plastic, you'll need to apply heat to these parts so they be slightly maleable when test fitting

    Do you have thought of making an improvement kit for optimus maximus and victorion? PE kits are very expensive or non-existent

    Been trying to get a crotch/torso upgrade made for the Motormaster mold, but haven't been able to get it down without limiting the figure like PE kit did (wanted to keep the waist swivel if can tbh). For the Defensor mold, I do have plans but it works more like the C+ customs upgrade where it thickens the thighs but need to be set in the alternate fan config.

    ¿Podrías hacerle solo la cadera a este molde? para que tuviera un hip twist… creo que con solo eso seria 100 veces mejor combiner

    This is a weird "request" (not that I expect you to do it), but what about one with a more female curve? Like, not Big Firebird Nicee curvy or that, I just mean something that makes the gestalt a little more visibly feminine?

    Something nice I wanted Computron to have with the design a little bit based on his cartoon look. This one's meant to be glued on to Scattershot's feet.. Greatly inspired by Steamshield's Computron side armor.

    Oh man, "Apex" Predator.

    That's great.

    These are neat upgrades too, of course.

    Defensor
    Screenshot 2023-06-30 155628.jpg

    A waist piece + abdomen cover, letting Hotspot's legs to be left in unchanged from robot mode into gestalt mode. So now the alternate leg config can be use without the ladder getting in the way.
    Screenshot 2023-06-30 155721.jpg
    The crotch piece can also be use as a gun outside by Hotspot
    And the abdomen cover can be stored on the ladder outside of gestalt mode

    Credits to Summersideguy for his Defensor upgrade kit, I simply redesigned the looks to fit a G1 style and added some non-gestalt function as well as simplifying things.
