    i have tried. The ball joint connections are hold in position by friction. However, it is hard to accurate in this size of 3D printing, little smaller, like less than 1mm inaccurate print will make it lack of friction, resulting the joint fall.

    i would like to have more try when i m free & i have cash, becoz i have been printed 4 fail test model of that whip & this is kind of hurt (of my wallet).

    Hey cnomis, is it still possible to get the gun portion of the Beevolution kit separately? I see the link but when I open it, it says not for sale.

    Cnomis (or anyone),
    1. Can you tell me if Bumblebee's AOE missile launchers if they are printed in yellow are a reasonable color match for AOE Bee? I've tried painting to customize before and I'm just not good at it (unfortunately).
    2. Can Cade's gun be wielded by a 1:18 scale figure? If not any chance of making a version that can? I'd really like to make a Cade figure some day (though again I'm not good at customizing).
    3. For Slog's neck extension I was wondering if Shapeways has any kind of material options that might somewhat match the dark translucent plastic look.
    4. Wouldn't the Stinger kit actually be a better match for Bee too? In promotional art he is shown having four Shuriken also.

    Thanks

    1. Well, not really. It doesn't look exactly the same, but you could use it.
    2. Any input, cnomis?
    3. No.
    4. There's already a BB Kit. Stinger has many doohickeys that aren't on BB, like elbow missiles. BB has his weird crescent gun things.

    Also, you can mix and match/mod the kits.

    But, bumblebee scanned stinger in the movie, and they both displayed the exact same abilities throughout, sooooo... technically couldn't there just be one kit that includes everything from the bumblebee and stinger kits?

    He never scanned Stinger. He scanned a passing Camaro.

    Also, they have different alt. modes.

    True, guess I misremembered, however that doesn't change the fact that they were identical in bot mode aside from their colors and head, and both had the same weapons and abilities.

    14 Oct update:
    i ve received my test pieces, including Bounty Hunter's & some idw & some CW. My Bounty Hunter's hand still got to work a bit more, i will show you guys some pic on this weekend.
    Stay tune.

    Yes, xNemesisPrimex, i just have 2 Lockdown, i will when i tweak my test piece, there is something wrong, gosh...

    Thx Sentinel Lynx answer for me. & about Cade's gun, i don't really have 1:18 figure, thus i dunno what size their hand hole is. If you provide me information, i definitely could do it for you.

    Prime135 got it right. Let me make some complement.

    Bee & Stinger never the same in alt mode, one is Camaro & one is concept car of Pagani Huayra. However, they turn much similar in their bot mode. Same battle mask(though different faces while they off-mask), same body structure, same shuriken on back, similar weapon design.
    Thus my beevolution kit is certainly for Bee & Stinger.

    i could make it altogether Prime135, but i have been told that not to becoz they want specific part. So, let me deal with my testing piece, after all i will get you a complete set.

    Really? No G.I. Joe figures hidden away? I figured most of us TF fans had a few. Anyway, it's not a big deal I wouldn't want to trouble you on something I imagine would have a very small demand (possibly just me). Thanks though.
