    [UPDATE MAY 10 2019]
    I'm using now this Premier, It is a lot thicker, and it looks a lot better after painting. 2019-05-10 12.36.40.jpg details looks better now as you can see in the pictures below

    [UPDATE APR 2 2019]
    STRUCTURAL PIECES
    I created a couple of pieces to help with the stress in the calf cover pegs and also to help keeping the whole calf cover together with the figures, Please check this video to know how to use them, to all people who already bought the kit, I will be sending you the files to your inbox so you can print them in any local 3d printing service.


    [UPDATE FEB 24 2019]
    Some tolerances issues has been found in the 1st and 2nd batch, I will contact all of you to fix those issues, in case a piece is needed I will send the piece required, with this issue, in case you don't have a tracking number yet, you won't have those issues, I already fixed most of these problems, please before using the kit take a look to this video. I made my best to tune up the tolerances, and I hope the future people wont have these problems

    thanks


    Note: A sandpaper 600 grit will possibly be required, please try not to use a Dremel, it almost always heat the plastic.
    [END UPDATE FEB 24 2019]

    Hello guys, my set is already available to acquire, I tried to make it available for all public some weeks ago, but I had 2 problems 1st, the prices were too expensive when I posted the files in sites, like 3dHubs, Shapeways or I-materilize, 2nd the materials they were using to print the files were used at the same density, and some pieces had to be printed harder in some places and a bit flexible in other parts, and these sites don’t accept configuration files, so I decided to do it by myself.


    Complete set including Chest Plate: The pieces that you are receiving in this set are as described in the following table
    [​IMG]

    There are 27 pieces in total.

    Recommendations: Always be careful, some of these pieces have to deal with a lot of stress, remember some of them have to articulate legs and arms and other parts lift the weight of some parts of the combiner. I cleaned up and tested most of the pieces but you have to understand I’m not a company, I’m producing these pieces by myself and 3D printers can make some error, or also my own mistakes, so please be careful. I’m using PLA plastic at different densities, I tried to make pegs and holes to perfectly fit each other or a little tight, but in some cases you will need to sand some pegs to fit into the holes. Don’t bend the pieces. Remember it is PLA, and PLA is some kind rigid, it is a bit flexible for example when you plug the chest, it has some flexibility because of the way it was designed but one part itself is not very flexible. In conclusion please be careful, J


    Sanding and Painting:

    The items are 3D printed PLA so they can have some rings in some places very soft rings in others are noticeable, besides that 3D printing could have some defects and don’t look professional, that is why I deeply recommend painting the pieces in the table that are marked as need paint, I sand it first, with a very soft waterproof paper, then prime it with Rust-Oleum primer and filler, 2 or 3 layers of it, then sand it again, then 1 layer of Rust-Oleum paint color you prefer, you will see the big difference.

    Payment: I made my best to make it as cheap as possible, my initial idea was to make it for me only, but I realized that it solidly works, so I decided to share the set with you, they are lot of pieces 27 in fact, and very big items in some cases, creating one set takes around 30 to 35 hours, then I have to clean up the pieces and testing them. I’m making each of these pieces by myself

    The complete set is being sold in USD 100, plus shipping. I can paint the paintable pieces as well if you prefer, in that case I will charge USD 40 more for that work. In Case you are interested please send a PM to me and I will send you my PayPal address so you can pay for your set.


    Shipping to USA USD 15.

    Shipping to Europe USD 20.

    Shipping to South America USD 15.

    Other shipping costs or in case you are only interested in some parts of the set please pm me.


    Delivery and Shipping process:

    The process to create each set is about 4 or 5 days, and then I have to clean up the pieces and tested them so I will send the tracking code after about 7 to 10 days. Thanks for reading.

    OLDER POST WITH OLD PICS

    Hello , I've bought all Unique toys combaticons except UT Onslaught, I think UT Onslaught is not show accurate, so I bought Zeta Onslaught instead, I created a whole set of adapters and pieces so we can use UT limbs in Zeta torso, I will be posting some videos of how to use them. :)

    Pretty cool, I like the calf enhancers especially. But do the feet have any articulation left?

    Great work. Haven't paid much attention to the UT figures but you can see how the Zeta arm ratchet system works better for added joint strength

    Holy Shit!!!! I have been waiting for someone to do this ever since UT showed just how piddly their Bruticus was.
    This is the best of all worlds - UT has great limbs and the nice Zeta Onslaught, giving a Constructor sized Bruticus.
    I would happily pay you to print these or if you’re willing to share the files, I would love to print them myself.
    I kind of find Shapeways plastic is pretty medicore quality and expensive so that’s probably not the best option - but it will do.

    But please share this work with the world, anyway you can!!

    Can't wait to buy the chest plate. Tigerblade did the same, but unfortunately did not upload it to shapeways. So I'm really looking forward seeing this!

    Same boat here. I actually planned to sell my UT set when I finished Zeta but haven't been able to bring myself to actually let them go despite the fact that I DON'T display combiner teams in both modes. I really like the UT individuals better. This may solve my Bruticus conundrum, lol.

    20181217_133827.jpg 20181217_134632.jpg Hello guys I modified the chest gold/brown part , because even when ithe looked fine in real life , in pictures it looked like a frame around the purple part, so I modified it a bit and I think it looks more cartoon accurate now

    Hello guys I've already uploaded all the pieces to shapeways, but it is too expensive to sell them by there, only the hand adapter is about 45 USD, so I was looking for other alternatives, I'm looking for a partner in case someone is interested to make it available to you guys. Im leaving some pics here, I had some time the last weekend and I could paint the whole combiner, and then took some pics of each Combaticons and then Bruticus, Merry Xmas 20181224_180842A.jpg 20181224_004423.jpg 20181224_005710.jpg 20181224_011157.jpg 20181224_181742.jpg 20181224_183220.jpg
