    Screenshot_1.png Another Update:

    Sadly it looks as for now that this guy will not be produced after all. It has been months since I have heard any updates at all from GCI so I am taking it that things have come to an end. With that I am going to try and find other means of getting this guy out to you guys. Soon as a stop gap I will have it on my Shapeways store for those who may want to buy it, but it will end up being expensive, close to $100. Thanks for the support of the past years and I hope I have better news for you all soon!

    The first test prints came in today. I printed using WSF polished so the joints are loose. I am the process of making things tighter. I am also going to take crack at paining so that should also make things tighter.

    My latest creation is Guzzle based on Nick Roche's Last Stand of the Wrecker design. He is my first full figure design so there was a lot to consider when coming up with the transformation and concept. This will be a set available on Shapeways. He stands about 4" tall to the top of his head and will be in scale with the Generations Wreckers. I will be ordering test prints within a week or so there will be some time to make slight changes so please make comments and let me know what you all think.

    Aw snap, I thought I had enough stuff to wishlist on Shapeways. Super excited to see this tiny mean machine all printed and painted and standing next to the other Wreckers.

    Model is great. But I prefer the look he had on his toy packaging.

    Looks great! I'm really surprised that no third party has given us an IDW Guzzle yet.

    Thanks man, I think between you and myself we have about every Wrecker covered haha. I would like so see your progress on the Guzzle you started.

    Thanks, I usually don't paint my prints but I am going to make the effort for this guy.
    Thanks. What packaging are you referring too?

    Thanks! This has been a fun project to work on.

    Thanks! yeah, it seem that Guzzle does get overlooked. It could be because of his size. not really a legend or a deluxe.

    Thanks! I tried to base his proportions on the comics by scaling his profile compared to Kup so he would be in scale with the current Wreckers.

    This is awesome! You should see if nonnef can make it into a full-fledged injection molded figure.

    He looks amazing. An almost perfect rendition of Guzzle.

    Though if I'm honest, I kinda think the tank mode is meh. But it's accurate to the source material, so I'll let it slide.

    It's a bit hard to tell from your renders, but can the main cannon rotate upwards to face vertically at all?

    Otherwise, it looks like a solid effort!

    Thanks! Yeah I would like this to be more than a Shapeways project so we will see how things go.

    Thanks! It was hard to make the transformation interesting with a simple alt mode but I tried to add in a lot of moving parts to make him more than just laying him on my stomach.

    Dude, he looks great, why did you stop working on him? In early development for Guzzle I thought about using that mode as a base but decided I wanted to try a full figure intend. this was the right choose for me because it turned into a lot of fun and actually easier than trying to match up parts.

    Thanks! The barrel of the gun is on a large ball joint so it does have some movement. Wont be sure on the exact range until I have the test prints in hand.

    I don't see that being a problem. Just not sure how many figures the ball joint would work on. I'll let you know when it get that up on shapeways.

    If you offered it in parts (head, chest as separate pieces) I would be game for using it as part of my own bash. Maybe even the arms as I like how the hands transform. Oh, and the gun!!! Dammnit!!! now I should just get the whole bot.

    Very nice design and good size to fit any Classics Wreckers collection.
