    The Renderform "Future Board" accessory for Tailgate is now up for pre-order on Renderform.com. Originally debuting at TFCon Charlotte, last month, a second run is now available for preorder. As well, the limited version of the purple Cyclonus variant of the hover board is also available while supplies last. You can pre-order now by visiting the following link:

    New Products November 2015 Product Categories - Renderform

    Alternatively, for those who feel the Renderform items are priced too high, I have also made available the Hoverboard design through Shapeways, for those who may want to customize one themselves. To help keep cost down, no markup has been added to the 3D printed Shapeways version. This version also has not been tested, so please be prepared to sand and hand finish that version.

    Update December 12th 2015
    Hover board is now only available as a provisional pre-order. If you place a order for it now, you won't be invoiced until I've confirmed available stock on Tuesday, December 15th. At that time, any available will be offered to those on a first come, first serve basis.

    I have the one from TFcon USA. Well-made indeed; a neat accessory.

    Only thing I wish it had was a Tamashii stand compatible peg on the underside.

    Ha! Cute.

    Cyclonus having his own hoverboard was a nice touch.

    It doesn't even hover! Total fail!

    One of MP soundwaves empty energon cubes would probably work as a stand.

    The original plan was to include a clear base to attach the hoverboard too. However, that would add to the cost. I don't own any Tamashii stands, otherwise I could of tried to incorporate the board to work with it.

    The Tailgate deco is suppose to be on the top side of the board. When it was introduced originally, the comic panels made it look like the design was added on to his current hover board. But what happens is Tailgate gets a second hoverboard, which has this design on the top side.

    So awesome! :D 

    I was hoping they'd make this accessory for Tailgate, and one for Cyclonus too!

    Ha! This is awesome. I just made an order for it and a few other accessories I hadn't seen before, thanks Venksta.

    BTW, I noticed that the "categories" listing on the right column of the page didn't show all of the categories, and so some items weren't immediately browsable. But I could click "renderform store" along the top and then see all of the categories, including items that weren't in the weapons or upgrade kit categories.

    So the 2nd run, which was 50 hover boards, was all pre-ordered up earlier. At the time of this post, half of the 3rd run has been pre-ordered, which is another 50 sets. I will probably put up a pre-order "waiting list" for a 4th run. But at the moment, I can't gurantuee if I will get to a 4th batch yet.

    As of the next hour, the 2nd run will be all casted, and I'll begin prep work on it in the morning. Casting for the 3rd run will begin later tomorrow or Wednesday. I also have a video of my designing process of the hover board which I'll post up tomorrow, for those interested in that sort of thing.

    Thanks for letting me know. I fixed it up, along with some other issues.

    Could not resist. Don't even have a Tailgate, but I'll be darned if I can't wait to pose one of my figures with this. (Huge BTTF fan!)

    At the time of this post, 32 of the 50 hover boards for the 3rd run have been pre-ordered.

    For those interested in behind the scenes of how I design my custom Renderform items, here is a time lapse video showing the initial design process in making the template design for the hover board, and then the actual 3D modeling part.
