I have a Makerbot 3D printer so a few months ago I decided to design and print my own original transformer and name him after my long time forum name - Quaternion - kinda like "If I were a transformer, I would be..." Backstory I haven't worked out his backstory yet entirely (I am not basing it on my own life or anything). He will probably be an Autobot by affiliation but is primarily a lone wolf. He is known to be a bot of few words, straight and to the point, and loathes small talk. He prefers using his blades but will use the turret if he is in grave danger. He probably has a dark past or something or he lost some one close to him in the war etc etc. Modeling/Scale He is about leader/ultra class size. He transforms into a blue (my favorite color) Helitank - half apache helicopter / half tank - because I couldn't decide whether I wanted to be a helicopter or a tank. There are some parts of the helicopter body, the face, and the tank turret that were not originally my 3D models. I got them from thingiverse.com and then heavily altered them. The rest was done from scratch on tinkercad.com Articulation He has the following articulation: universal neck universal shoulder joints double jointed elbow bend elbow swivel wrist swivel ankle tilt universal hip joint upper thigh swivel turret swivel turret barrel up/down rotation spinnable rotor blades Accessories: also the rotor blades detach and can become two swords or a hand held spinning rotor. The turret can be a backpack or detaches to be hand held too. Transformation His transformation is rather simple and mimics many standard transformations of transformers. But note that he does fully transform and is not a parts former. Pictures I haven't painted him yet but I am planning sliver and yellow highlights. There is a digibash in there to show a potential paint scheme.
