Awesome! Are you going to be selling these on shapeways or anything like that?
I don’t have a 3D printer, so I have to outsource my prints. I have extra because it made more sense to print a few instead of a single one for a print job. I don’t need the rest so if anyone wants them I can sell what I have left.
Thanks for the interest
Yes. Ill take one.
I'll definitely take one!
I’ll take 1 plz
Ok $5 shipped is a good price then.
Please note that given the small size, I will mail in a regular stamped envelope/ regular mail service (no tracking) within the US. Please PM me if interested.
Any international shipping, it’s extra pending cost.
I’ll respond to PM, sorry fir the wait.
Great - pm sent!
Funny thing, whenever I show people my 2 MP Primes they always say they like MP-10 better. And I can see where they are coming from, but man TE-01 just is Prime to me.
Well, for a random guy crossing the room, MP10 will always be the best.
All the Hasui era MPs with realistic details etc are just better looking if you don't care about 'accuracy'.
Same thing for MOTUC: if I ask somebody, classics look cool, Club Grayskull look like cheap toys for kids.
But if you are a fan, well, then it depends on your priorities.. no, wait. You need both, of course
Yes, tried to the tighten the screw, but it already so tight it will not move. It is like the teeth are rounded off, but I have genuinely moved the figure a handful of times.
So, anyone know the contact info for Transform Element to see if I can buy/request replacement parts for the right shoulder?
excellent! I want to take one.
And there is one suggestion.
Gray part in the original TE. Is it possible to 3D print the waist front part and waist side hinges in near white?
Yeah that's exactly it. MP-10 has all those gorgeous details and TE-01 just looks flat compared to him. But TE-01 also looks like he just walked off my tv screen. So for me he's perfect. And I do notice that with posing, and proportions MP-10 is somewhat limited. Great to have both!
I suspect most people if they didn't know any better and were never told any different would assume TE-01 is simply an action figure, and not a 'Transformer'. I know a few of my friends thought that very thing. The figure looks too sleek to be able to flip into a truck.
I don't fully support how TE have handled the mold. With the constant 'updating' of the figure and releasing new versions very 3 to 4 months, they have milked the shit out of this mold and their loyal customers... However, I do fully support the designer of the figure it self. The man some how managed to capture lightning in a bottle.

When the outline symbols arrived, the shoulders changed and additional chest panels were manufactured.
I accidentally dropped him on the floor concrete from a height of 1m!!
I prepared for the damage ... but he was just a small wound and nowhere was broken.
Recognized the robustness of TE-01.
MP-44 may let go, but the TE-01 will not. I like TE.
There isn’t an available filament color that’s a match. Even the light gray color I used for my 3D neck adapter is darker and the white is too light. There would still be a mismatch unfortunately. Sorry

My beloved YOTH “Ninja” Prime! Yeeeehaa! Seriously...I don’t like the gold...but the rest of the color scheme on this one is great. Never will let go my copy.
TE01 is my deskbot at home and I have it in front of me during my night work at my band's last album... And I was looking at him and thought: its head is a bit too small... What if they put in the box a new bigger head with true season 2 shape (not pointy mask!!!)? It would be awesome, perfect final prime. Maybe with a bigger head it could not transform, but if you wanted to transform all its needed would be to install the standard head.
Would be perfection!
Anyone is thinking that the head is a bit on the small side?
I love it the way it is, but I can definitely see your point of view, as TE01 is a very bulky-looking figure.
Your best hope is Shapeways I think. Maybe some designer could help you out on this if you prefer it that way!
I love it the way it is too... Shapeways could be of help, but the "rough" finish on surfaces is a no-no for me... Mine was just a wishful thinking more than a real need. It is an awesome figure and I am waiting for a V4 to see what new features it will come with.
If at TE are smart, they will start selling more accessories for this prime!
