    Love that we finally got an Ark toy. I don’t care about the robot mode, never going to use it, but the ship mode is gappy and if you try to lift it by the rear end it basically breaks in half.

    So here’s the prototype. Makes the Ark rock solid as a spaceship so you can whoosh it around in the air.

    Look at all the pencil marks indicating where I need to fix it up.

    And version 2
    (Color change was unintentional. Ran out of dark orange)

    Version 3 is being test printed now. Printing to line up ship details with the 3D printed details.

    Love the work because it is really needed. Here's my dream. They already have the clip on sides for the back of ark that come in the package. Instead of designing something to clip on to those pieces, I would love to see somebody redesign those clips that come in the package to be fully enclosed and snap on to the side all the way up to and covering the gray piece in the middle. This way the Ark would only be a little wider than it already is.
