    [​IMG]So I was able to model and 3D print his neck and made a bit taller for a bit more down neck articulation :)  just had to tweak the front side of his neck for clearance as it was hindering any further down moment even with the extra height.

    It’s ~1/8” taller so you gain 1/8” more down movement. Those familiar with this figure know he has none.

    3D printed extended necks for sale:
    Transform Element TE-01 (Optimus Prime)

    I did experiment with a taller neck which allowed for more down movement, but his neck started to look like a giraffe neck....so the 1/8” extension was my compromise.

    And yes he can still transform with it :)

    Great work! Will you be sharing the file for those of us interested in printing our own? I have 4 of this mold so far, I am hoping they release a white version soon!
