    This is my first upgrade kit that I've designed.

    TAPE RECORDER KIT
    The kit consists of 3 main components:

    Arm Fillers - TP1 - the flaps that cover the gaps and hide fists in alt mode

    Back Adapters - TP2 - they change the transformation sequence and give Soundwave his iconic cassette tape player mode

    Tape Fillers - TP3 - as the name suggests they cover the gaps in the altmode, in robot mode they fold up and stay behind his legs.

    Nice work! I hope the Earthrise mold gives it a good clean cassette player mode. Especially without all that ugly battle damage, that really ruined the seige figure.

    Amazing work! Are you planning on publishing these upgrades?

    Are you going to put this upgrade kit on cults3d.com or thingiverse.com or are you going to sell this on shapeways.com

    Thanks!
    Yeah, that was my first 'big' upgrade kit. Before this I've designed missiles for UT Unicron and accessories for PotP Octopunch :D 

    I might put those files on cults. I still haven't figured out if I want to sell the prints tho.

    Hi guys! I've decided that I'll do both. I will try to sell the files for a nominal fee and I'll sell printed parts for those who can't print these on their printer. I still need to see how these will work with ER Soundwave that got leaked tho.

    Well I've got to say this but Im not paying $12.00 when I can get it for free on thingiverse, your kit looks very similar except the filling in the cassette mode. No deal m8.

    Yea, but these are stl files not the physical thing. Besides thingiverse has these for free. Smarter not harder.

    It takes time and effort to make these things and with rising prices in everyday things it would be nice to support them

    You don't know if those on thingiverse actually work and how they work. Mine are tested by many people and were actually sold in Poland so it's a verified product. And also those are highly detailed to match the Siege style. I've spent a lot of time on these and for three different sets of parts that actually work and move I think it's a decent price.

    The amount of proof in this sentence should be enough for anyone to agree with

    It's interesting to see that folks are still making different versions of a design concept I came up with and sold way back in March 2019. =)

    If ever I thought it would be useful to have a downvote button it would be for that guy’s post...
