    Just got this custom forearm with missiles and 5mm hand made by sledgehammer smithery on shapeways.

    he did awesome work! ive been waiting a long time for my grapple to look like this.

    Cool so does the new hand hinder the transformation any?

    very, i waited years and lucked out found the inferno, grapple, and artfire boxes on ebay. but i have had good luck finding shapeways creators to do custom works such as this hand/missile set. if i hadn't come across them im sure someone would do the custom work

    nope. the toy missile has to come off but it stores easily in the back between the arms in vehicle mode.

    Maybe you could request someone on Shapeways to make the head guards?

    I'm actually looking at doing the head guards myself on my shapeways page.

    Actually yes! They clip on to the crane part in vehicle mode. I'm going to try to post pics later tonight.
