    The latest works in progress are Optimus upgrades. Rockets and shoulder stacks with new custome blast effects. What do you think?

    Those jetpack add ons completely justify the kibble imo. In fact I finally signed up for an account on here just to say that, with the addition of some gas tanks, I'd pay as much for this if not more than any of the other kits out there.

    thanks the feedback! very appreciated!

    Were you suggesting adding gas tanks on his back as well? Do you have an example picture of what they would look like?
    I could design gas tanks to fit into the 5mm ports above the rockets...

    I meant gas tanks for the legs. Ones that peg in between the wheels.

    There already are gas tank like things on his legs, well, in alt mode.

    I modded a jetpack for Siege OP (made a copy of a 3P MP Bumblebee jetpack and modded that) if you want an idea:
    Various mods (of mods), custom stuff

    I particularly Like the Foot fillers for Ratchet those add a lot. Have you considered doing a similar set up for the other versions of the mould family ?

    I think there is likely a market just for the mushroom cap fillers for 5mm ports too in a variety of colours.

    Thank you, I really appreciate it!


    That is a good idea, I thought I was only being picky about filling the 5mm ports! Although I am finding the 5mm ports are not all equal across different figures. The same cap fillers from Ratchet don't fit good on Sideswipe which is very annoying so I think a generic cap filler will not work in all cases.

    A taste of other things in progress. Sideswipe G1 shoulder missile launcher. Sword is an experiment, cause robots with swords are cool, so why not?

    I just got the Ratchet filler pieces in hand and they are absolutely amazing. The fit is perfect and they look so natural - as good or better than any filler set I've ever purchased.

    Suggestions:

    Masterpiece style blast effects (energy sphere at nozzle followed by beam taper) but with Siege compatible connector (5mm peg with 3mm port). Total length should match the length of the long Jetfire blast effect.

    Energon Mace for Megatron

    Good ideas! The MP44 blast effects are something I have on my list :)  .

    Megatron mace - could be a challenging print, I will have to look into it further...

    Optimus battle axes designed like Striker Manus'. My first attempt in lighter grey and then second revision in darker silver.
