This. In fact the two Megatron figures where about 35$+shipping, and they both looked raw and unfinished.
As I am living in Europe, I might go for the Shapeways route: the Drawn-steel hero designs look amazing. I'm a bit concerned about possible rub issues on the painted ball joints, though...
I'm holding Mega-Gun right now, as well as some parts I had printed on Shapeways. How can you compare the two and call MasterShooter's product raw and unfinished? It's smooth ABS plastic verses whatever that rough stuff Shapeways prints with. He is blocky, but then so was G1 Megatron in the cartoon. How is he "raw and unfinished"?[/quote]
You are right, sorry, it was a poor choice of words. By the way I was referring to the design, not to the material. Sure Mega Gun - which I know just from Peaugh's review - is casted in high quality plastic, better than Shapeways' nylon - or whatever that stuff is. Yet the design and the paint aps don't really work for me, I find them too simplicistic.
So I'd rather print the Drawn-Steel-Hero's ones and paint them myself, but it's just my opinion of course.
