Mandingo Rex of TFormers.com has just updated a thread in which he shows us high resolution pictures of a printable Teletraan-1 display set and the Autobot Ark interior. Mandigo Rex has been working on this project for about a year or so and has finally given us links to access his awesome creation.





As evident by the pictures, this model was designed to be in scale with Transformers Alternators figures. Mandingo Rex does state that you can scale down the pictures for any other series also.

Beauty is a rare thing. I've got to print and build this asap! Very much appreciated.

Wow, didn't expect this to be posted as news! Haha.

Thanks guys, it's actually that the designs are done, the final high-res files have yet to be finalized for print...

So the ones you see on the site are only test proofs, I've recently color corrected them to match the Ark panels (the Ark panels ARE done, and ready for printing on 11x17).

The Teletraan-I unit is pretty much done, design-wise... I'm still waiting to print it out and assemble it all together. I've been super busy these last few weeks, but I hope to get the final high-res files available within the week.

Sami (SamiWCP) is helping me test the prints to make sure everything lines up, I actually don't have full access to my work plotters for a few days. Right now, the design files allow it to be printed at 30" tall, at max size, but that's a tad big I realized. I intended it for MP/Alternator scale at the largest, went a TAD big.

This thing is so purely awesome I had to news it. It's beautiful, it's what the fans want and you're not charging for it. Thats a story!

That is a gorgeous piece of work, if I can work out how to scale it down to Classics/G1 size I am there! Impressive job, and I like the Alternators too, there are not enough good Ironhide figures floating around.

Hey guys, I have new files posted with slight edits. Check the original post for updates.

Thanks guys! By the way, the custom Alts use Valkfan's heads, but sadly I just lost them recently in a fire. They were my favorites!

Here's the temporary low-resolution images. The high-res files are just too big for now, I hope the traffic doesn't cripple my site.

They have been color corrected to match the Ark plates, and scaled down slightly. They're 200dpi and should still work well for a 24" tall unit, if people so desire.

I'm not promising that everything lines up just yet, but keep checking the original thread for updates.

Ah yes. I'll be heading over to Staples for some heavy weight paper tonight. Just amazing.

If I were going to print it, I'd want to do it on some cardstock at a print shop.

Great work! I might just have to download these when they are all finished.

yea, same here, good quality cardstock would be necessary here...and also though it may seem to be free, this print out is gonna use up a heck of a lot of ink, maybe a full cartridge or two

FRAC I don't have a working printer :(

I wonder if some sort of arrangement can be made with Seibertron.com to host the finished files? Would bring some traffic to download the files.

The panels would also be nice to tint purple for some Nemesis backgrounds for decepticon displays.

Excellent work man!

Which is why it would be vastly cheaper to print it up at some sort of print shop, where they have industrial gear.
