    Thanks. And yes, the black part has a 3mm hole in it (I know it's hard to see due to the dark color). Once I get a Frumble in hand, I'll look at redesigning that part a little. I would like to make it cover his entire hand, but, I'm not quite sure of the dimensions I need to design to just yet.

    I'd love to see more Macross style missiles:

    Other idea comes to mind with Titan Masters, making a smoke effect to simulate the landing of the head:

    And maybe something like a Captain America throw effect:

    Just suggestions! if you put 'em on thingiverse i'll try them myself :)

    Thanks man! I was thinking of doing another version of the Gundam missiles with a larger number of smaller projectiles like the pic you posted. I'll add it to the list. The TM smoke effect looks fun too. I'd need pics and dimensions for Cap's hand and shield in order to do an effect like that since I don't own that figure.

    Thanks, man. They kind look like they would go with Ironhide's hammer/cannon thing since it appears to fire an array of small projectiles. But, I'm making a set with 5 smaller missiles...kinda like the Macross missiles @Kitsunemx posted, that might look more "realistic".

    There's going to be more goofy shit too:

    Here's a draft of the Macross missiles. I still need to run this through Blender to, well, blend things and add some variation and detail to the vapor trails. Let me know if you would like things adjusted.

    Blendered:

    EDIT: @Fallout may like these more?? The missiles themselves are about 2/3 the diameter of the 3-missile effect Sideswipe and Ironhide are holding in the pics in this thread. Plus, there's more of them...and the smoke trails look less like scrubbing bubbles and more like smoke. Lol.

    love it. found out today that soundwave's back kibble/jet mode engines are somewhere in between 4 and 5mm, you can barely fit effects in there... so i may have to order these for him now.

    also i'd totally recommend something like a laser blast effect made for megatron's cannon. that's one that we don't have any real options for that don't look pathetic.

    Awesome. I'll start putting this stuff on Shapeways in a day or two...I don't expect they'll be terribly expensive.

    If you can, post a sketch or picture of the kind of blast effect you'd like to see for Meg's cannon. I'll see what I can come up with based on your preferences.

    just something that's either a straight tube shape or a half-tube that kind of morphs into a more... boom-y effect at the end. as toon accurate as it gets, pretty much.
