    "Meet Yellowarden. A reserved yet tough 'bot on the ground, he unleashes his true firepower when combined with his buddy Crimsonic. In vehicle mode, Yellowarden pursues enemies across even the roughest terrain."

    Yellowarden is a 100mm tall Robot armed with twin blasters.
    Transforms into an armoured ATV.

    Articulated with ball-jointed: Neck, Shoulders, Elbows, Wrists, Hips, Knees, Ankles.
    Designed for use with 3mm-compatible weapons.​

    It is highly recommended that prints of Crimsonic and Yellowarden be produced in the same material, to ensure compatibility between models.​

    Congratulations of the successful design and implementation of a fully 3D printed figure.

    Personally I'd spring for a little nicer, less rough plastic but that's just me. Otherwise, looks great!

    What about squaring off the back of the feet so they can better come together to form a front bumper?

    Transformation Instructions for Yellowarden added to the OP.

    Thanks. The print shown is White Strong and Flexible, due to Yellowarden's size, requiring a durable material for its joints.

    As for the back of the feet, the shape of the bumper is slightly compromised here, but their round shape will come into play when Crimsonic is revealed. ;)

    Wow, I'd completely forgot about that toy. Yellowarden does disassemble and reassemble in some ways, but he's definitely not related to Dead End. :D 

    Thanks. :)

    Assembly Instructions for Yellowarden have been added to the OP. Note: Parts connected via pegs (upper leg, upper arm, backpack, chest panel) are intended to be detachable, but do not detach during transformation of Yellowarden.


    Thanks :)

    So looking through all your shapeways figures, wondering how a GI Joe would look on this guy. It reminds me of the ferret! I had the tigerforce version so even the yellow looked right.

    Oh, and if it was blue, it could transform into a rumble, and make the ferret cannon into his pile-drivers!
