    Man, I love my 3D printer... so I've been going through my collection and revisiting things that always bugged me about certain figures, then designing and printing solutions for them. CW Megatron, always loved the figure, but his feet looked stupid to me and all the aftermarket upgrades for him gave him gigantic clown feet. Came up with these feet parts that just tab right in and are sized just right to avoid giving him super sized feet. They also add a rocker to the feet for better articulation. On to the next idea to print...

    Looks great, do you have these on Shapeways?
    Been waiting for a pair of feet for this guy since i saw this.
    How do they connect to the feet?

    Might put it up on Shapeways tonight. I was waiting for that SND set too, but decided to just make my own. My feet have 3 tabs that fit right into the 3 rectangular holes in the bottom of the Megatron feet. I made the tolerances just right so they fit in very securely. It's 2 parts to allow the rocket pivot, but I need to clean up the edge on one part to make the range of motion smoother when pivoting the foot.
