I can see that being very, very useful!


The Huffer hood actually worked really well (in my opinion)...the neck attachment is a little more snug than I'd like, but it fit without breaking.

I'll get some pics up shortly.

I just placed an order for test runs on all of my pieces.

Eeveryone cross their fingers that my aim was true.

The vests, if they work, seemed pretty reasonably priced, actually.

The backpacks, on the other hand, well...I think Huffer might be a liability. His hood will probably have to be scaled down...unless, of course, it turns out that Huffer has some kind of cult following for whom price is no object.


Anyone feel like taking a gamble on untested, non-refundable prototypes?


Sounds good to me

Here are the models for some new vests: Kup, Ultra Magnus, Hot Rod/Rodimus, and Blurr:

I'm very suspicious of Hot Rod's flames. The edges slim down under the 2mm minimum that Shapeways says it needs for details.

I'm not quite satisfied with Kup's vest just yet. It would probably be more convincing in color.

Ultra Magnus is a piece of cake to build using the cartoon version as a model...I might have gotten carried away making it project out too far, but the higher contrast pieces seem to come out better.

Weapon: Battle Blades
Minimum is actually 0.7mm for wall thickness. You can dip below that for surface details I think but they probably won't print too well.

The new designs look great, I think the higher contrast relief of these designs will print nicely :)
