It might be worth talking to Nonnef - that guy does solid work with limited-run castings.
And... They are up! Finally grand max, waverider primemaster shells. Also Grimlock

Just to note. I made a few changes to what is pictured, mainly changes to waverider who i made his helmet and face bigger, also his belt is bigger.
Waverider and grandmax can be bought in one print which will save than buying them individually.
If anyone was thinking of grabbing some the other shells i did, they will be the price they are until the SW prices go up on old stuff sometime towards the end of February.
YES!!!! Can't wait to put in the next shapeways order. Thank you so much.
I kinda want that Grimlock one for Clobber, actually...LOL
I would love to get these, but I have had bad luck with the fragility of the smooth fine detail plastic. I would guess that I have broken about 25 per cent of the pieces that I have had printed in that type of plastic. If they were available in the WSF (I know that's not the name of it anymore, but I can't remember what the new terminology for that plastic is) I would buy them in a heartbeat. I would gladly sacrifice some detail for the added durability.
What were you printing? I have had a couple of the shells break(no weapons) on me but those were the test prints and only really broke because they did't fit and i wrestled with it to much, think doing so i dropped one and it broke. Also the test prints were weaker and less supported(since be changed). I dropped others various times and nothing happened. I have a warning on the listing just for awarness sake, i design them to be as strong as i can muster(i have spent time doing this) and i have to be confident it is as strong as i get before i put it up for sale. Still a good rule make sure you look at each piece you have and identify how susceptible or fragile parts can be as it will vary.
So really unless you are applying some excessive force to weak points or being really ruff with them you shouldn't have a lot to worry about it. Wsf is really not suited for these, i realise these are pricey but they are worth saving/paying the extra for that detail, wsf would be a waste of money as detail would go to mush.
So i have been trying to get on top of the painting, hoped to be further ahead but i am about 80% there maybe. Still some work to do but took some quick pics. More work needed but these will have to do for now.
May change some colours, not final...
Gosh I can't wait receive my "chief" shell. Should be here on Wednesday.
Thank you for the hard work.
