    Will you be selling a pack of your upgrades or the files, especially the hands? They look amazing!

    Thanks very much.

    Yeah. It’s weird how legends figures get these add ons but deluxe/voyagers never did.
    You’re right about all the crazy ways the designers make different joints for the figures. You’d think they could standardize hands so they could all just flip into the forearm under a panel…but….nope….lol

    Thank you. The files will be up on Cults3d soon.

    Will buy feet, get them up! Keep them separate from the rest if possible, feet are all I need. Backpack looks good flipped up but partsforming the other thing is a deal killer.

    Just got Sideswipe and while I do really like him I admit those stock feet are unacceptable. Considering how much better my Barricade is after applying your parts I'll be eager to give Sideswipe the same treatment once the files are up for sale.

    Thanks. When I upload to Cults3d, it will be a package for all the parts. That way you’ll have access to the other files if you decide to try them at some point, plus any new stuff I add to the package over time.

    really glad you liked the barricade upgrade.
    I meant to get the package on Cults3d last weekend but I will for sure do it this weekend.

    Thanks for the feedback :)

    Awesome!
    Liked and saved in my upgrade kit collection.
    I'll pick up a copy in a couple of weeks.

    Yes, that hand variant is designed to hold a 5mm peg.

    Excellent, especially since it gives wrist swivels.

    Hard to tell from the pic, are you only cutting the black shin part that is getting replaced, or are you cutting any of the red part underneath as well? It looks like you have to cut off the red circle part. Might want to take a clear pic of the finished cut part without the new part attached.

    Kinda have to agree there, at least some kind of installation pointers for all these would be nice.

    Downloaded and complete. Works well, transforms clean. Had to shave the doors down a little to get them to tab in for robot mode, they pressed against the new shin parts a bit.

    Yes. You’re right. It’s not super clear. Tried to describe it but a picture would be much better.
    You do have to cut off the red circular plastic piece at the bottom of the lower leg, leaving a flat surface for the new parts to be installed against. I will take a pic later and add it to the Cults page. I also thought about doing a video….

    If nothing else the new Barricade feet Omega made that I already had printed from Shapeways turned out great. They just took forever to actually be produced and shipped.

    I'm hoping for just as good quality with these.
