    Shockwave Lab's last accessory with transparent plastic (Megatron Mace) actually turned out really well. They need to keep doing non-LED kits like this.

    I got my first SW Lab set with the Trypticon lights a few weeks ago and was really impressed with the quality, so they are a company I'm keeping an eye on now. I'm not sure if I have an interest in this particular set myself, but I'm going to give them credit: that's pretty damn cool looking.

    Normally, it takes a lot for me to pick up something from Shockwave's lab, but this.... I need it.

    Wow I was just asking about an accessory like this the other day! I'll definitely have to pick it up for the big guy to wear. He seems more like a blade guy than a gun guy to me anyway

    Shockwave Lab's stuff isn't like 3d printed stuff. It's casted and way higher quality than you could generally get out of a 3d printer

    Yup. Need.

    Funny thing, I was going through my storage this weekend and happened across an old friend way in the back upper corner. He had the arm blade exactly like this.

    Pardon the dust. This guy and Metroplex standing beside him haven't been out of the storage room in years.

    No, Shockwave Lab kits ARE 3D printed. They may occasional use some other materials like metal or LEDs, but never casted.

    Factory 3D printers are higher quality than what one can typically do at home. Some factories will also perform additional smoothing steps afterward.

    Shockwave Lab quality is more like middle of the pack compared to the other 3d print groups out there. Their more recent kits have been better than Matrix Workshop.

    If you want to see 3d print quality that actually rivals injection molding, then see Go Happy (formerly known as GX Studio) 3D prints. When painted over, they do look like injection molded pieces.

    It looks so plain that I feel I can make this with popscicle sticks and paint but then I felt that way when I say the blade in those moving posters. I think I’m fine with his current armament of arm guns and massive cannons.

    I'll take 2 please!

    Hasbro Takara Tomy had better hurry up with Netflix Jetfire if they are going to do it and they better include the blade, they had to know that it would be something fans would want right?

    yeah I have been extremely happy with Gx Studio/Go Happy stuff, first time I looked at thier stuff I had to take a double HARD take to realize it was 3d printed and not injection molding, its really really good stuff. Love everyone of thier kits that I have so far. Really turned me around on 3d printed stuff.

    My kids are going to want this skyfire blade thing, so will have to get one for both of them from someone
