    Well, It's not perfect, but here it is.
    Please excuse the print quality. I am new to FFF/FDM style printing, and some of the parts need a re print.
    The light grey is not light enough, and the dark grey is not quite dark enough, and the Red needs to be more maroon or burgundy. But this is enough to get the point. There is no painting involved, but it does need glue, #2 screws and m1.5 steel dowels for assembly. I hope to do a smaller version that will not need any extra hardware for assembly, but that is later.

    I can't try the "tank" mode until I replace a few parts to allow his shoulder components to have clearance, but I was rushed before work.

    This was printed in ABS, on an Anycubic 4Max Pro at .2 mm layer height. I am hoping to have the fixes done by the weekend.

    this is fucking amazing! its so incredibly accurate to the prototype.

    Did you manage to incorporate his tank mode too? because that would put this over the top.

    I went to Radicons expecting to be medium amazed, not completely blown away. I need this on my shelf so bad.

    Man, I feel like running around in circles like an over excited puppy. He’s here! :D

    Absolutely astonishing! Is the figure entirely 3D printed, or are these effectively upgrade parts attached to an existing figure? I'm not all too familiar with the Animated figures. Regardless of that, you've done an amazing job modeling the figure!

    Wow, to print and design something so nicely that fits together seamlessly is amazing engineering. Plus, where are you going to upload the free file?

    As a casual Animated fan (old school G1 guy) who respected the designs and appreciated the deconstruction artistically of the characters and ALT modes...I WANT THIS.

    That ALT mode is down right perfect.

    That is INCREDIBLE!! You replicated the prototype so well I had to do a double take, I thought you photoshopped colours onto it.
