Looking for someone with experience making items on Shapeways.

Do you collect other toys besides Transformers? Maybe you've got a Masters of the Universe collection you'd like to show off, or maybe you like Thundercats, Voltron, G.I.Joe, Power Rangers, Star Wars, Wrestling, or any of the various comic book toy lines. Please keep the discussions here to non-Transformers toy lines.

First off, sorry if this is the wrong place for this topic. I don't frequent these parts of the forums that often.


As some of you may know, Takara has released their rendition of Wheeljack. And most of you probably noticed, he is completely devoid of color without his stickers.

Now when I saw that, the first thing that came to mind was "That thing is perfect for a Marlboor Wheeljack mod! With a new head and a decent Reprolabels sticker sheet, it would be perfect!"

Since then, I've been sketching up different designs for a Marlboor Wheeljack head that would fit in with the Prime Universe. I've finally come to one that I like, but there's a problem is: I have no means of producing a physical rendition of the head.

So here's my plea. Would anyone on here with 3D rendering and Shapeways experience be willing to help me test this design?

And if that goes well, maybe I'll pitch Ol' Reprolabels a request...

P.S. I've been toying with the idea of making replacement weapons instead of the standard swords for Marlboor. What do you guys think would be better, replacement guns or alternate swords?
