And they look great too! I love the Long Haul one and at first I was thinking that it's so big in the front that it would be impossible to keep that vest in the alt mode I have planned... BUT, can a neck post fit through the hole in the back? If it can then that'd be awesome as the front of the dump truck. If not.. then I'll have to think of something else... lol
Most of these look like they'd be too big to work in the alt mode, but for bot mode they look fantastic.
Are you going to be working on the Preds as well?
These are all based on the likenesses in the cartoon and Marvel comics, neither of which were particularly interested in retaining the physics necessary for getting Transformers from one mode to the next.
That being said, I can pretty easily toss together a customized-custom (a double-custom!) Long Haul with a deep, 4.9mm port on the back of the chest plate. Actually, if I get rid of the neck brace and the back stud, you could probably attach it to a Lego neckbrace and then slide it over the neck stem when you want.
My suspicion is, however, that most people willing to pay for and then paint these vests would not want to be transforming their Kreons...and they'd probably be just as likely to buy a second Kreon to have in the alt mode. (Remember, kids, Shapeways products are not toys and should not be given to children to play with. They are for decorative and display purposes only.)
