    THE DAY HAS FINALLY COME!

    my Pyro kit is now complete and ready for the public.
    https://www.shapeways.com/model/1308146/pyro-parts-whole-kit-w-o-gun.html?li=aeTabs
    incudes:
    head, chest, chest hinges, shoulders, shoulder cannon, knees and feet.

    to save money surprisingly the gun is sold separately
    https://www.shapeways.com/model/1307927/pyro-rifle.html?li=my-models&materialId=62

    Take this kit and convert your Universe 2.0 Inferno, RTS Grapple, GDO Hotspot, or BotCon Sparks into Last Stand of the Wreckers Pyro

    this kit is pretty big and contains a lot of parts but assembly is pretty straight forward as long as you have a screw driver.

    this was tested and final printed in White Strong Flexible Polished so thats a material i recommend. non polished would work as well but polished does feel a bit nicer and i hear it takes paint a lot better

    Painted Pics! definitely need to touch things up though.

    This looks great, I love how with a little imagination and the power of a 3d printer a new character can be born.

    I pretty much mangled a Classics Inferno and an RTS Grapple to kitbash together a (non-transforming) Pyro (with his head borrowed from GDO Hot Spot). This kit would let me salvage some of those figures (though that still leaves me with the dilemma of painting the parts). Decisions, decisions. :D

    i think i saw that in another post of yours hah.

    if only they made grapple mold with the same arms as inferno. that way you could use the inferno mold with grapples yellow arms. so little to no painting would be required
