    Trivia the Cruciverbalist (Shapeways)
    Update December 1, 2013


    I'll start of the thread by saying this: Always support official product as far as you're realistically able.
    And now back to regular scheduled programming.



    [​IMG]

    This is Trivia!Trivia is a small, 3 inch tall robot and he is quite articulate in more ways than one.
    There are joints in his neck, shoulders, elbows, wrists, hips, knees and feet.

    He features 5mm peg compatible hands. Those who want 3mm compatible hands do let me
    know and I'll cook something up.

    Assembly

    Assembling Trivia is simple enough. Put the limbs together as shown.
    Note that besides the hands, thighs and lower legs, the rest of the pieces are effectively symmetrical.

    One side of each lower leg has extra detail on it. That side should face outwards in bot mode.

    Plug the limbs, head and backplate onto the torso and you're done!

    Actually...I think it does!
    Not on original G1 Soundwave, but Soundblaster, Encore Soundwave and MP Soundwave should be able to accommodate him.

    I love the bot mode, but confused as to what his alt mode is supposed to be.
