TFC Uranos -- full "Echo" upgrade kit
echotransformer Thanks Furran. I used Tamiya Acrylic paints for this, and mixed their white, yellow, beige, red, black, and silvers to various amounts to tweak the colors to match the TFC plastics. What I would do is add small drops to a mixing tray, blend them, then check against the TFC plastic. I'd thin them out to be very watery, and paint directly on the Shapeways part (no primer). It's important to do light colors first because it bleeds. Then I'd just keep building it up with minor tweaks to the color with each coat until I was happy. It's much easier than it sounds...it's actually a lot of fun. Here's a video on the Hercules parts (unfortunately I don't have the exact recipe for Uranos, but I can tell you it was WAY easier to match than Hercules green and purple!) https://youtu.be/ajkkOLN6W_c
Echotransformer Hercules Upgrade V5  drill only
echotransformer @peterballard13 Hi Peter the drill is 30mm diameter at the base and 60mm long.
echotransformer @chrisprime0479, sure, does this pic help? You can see the size compared to the Rage forearms. The proportions are intended to mimic G1...
echotransformer @Moonus88 when both halves are pegged together, the peg is 5mm and should work with many Transformers
Echo Herc Kit V5  Crotch flaps only
echotransformer Hi Jon, unfortunately I can't say as I don't own one to test it on. I might work as some knock offs are pretty accurate but I am unable to guarantee it.

CAB COVERS V1
echotransformer Hi Nzekt, yes the rectangles are windows, I painted mine black and they looked pretty good. Here's a pic of them installed on their respective figures. http://i1058.photobucket.com/albums/t404/echotransformer/cab_covers_mockup2_zps56f1e754.jpg
echotransformer @Nzekt Hi there, these cover the back of the little cabs on Structor, Neckbreaker and Exgraver...for example you can see the open back of Structors cab in leg mode and this covers it.
TFC Uranos Backpack upgrade "Echo" kit--rev5
echotransformer @davea27742 No, unfortunately I don't have any plans for longer legs for CW Long Haul at this time. But I agree, they are too short!

D part1  REV2
echotransformer @jtsangnj that is good information thanks for the report. My test results were different--the printed nylon held up much better however I have noticed variable density and quality between various parts that Shapeways prints, perhaps a poor quality print is why the part failed sooner than expected...
Uranos Thighs V4--THIGHS ONLY
echotransformer @davea27742 yes, unfortunately those are out of tolerance. I recommend contacting Shapeways customer support. They may ask you to take measurements to show the parts do not match the CAD files I provided them.
echotransformer @davea27742 the parts have been tested and should fit just fine, however, sometimes Shapeways builds the parts too small--they are out of tolerance. I recommend contacting their customer support and raise a ticket. Thanks, Steve

Herc Hip replacements  REV2
echotransformer @yutada : no this does not come with the D-ring, yes please order separately. To my knowledge, Shapeways doesn't allow a kit of two different materials, that is why you need to buy separately. I have tested the Shapeways D-rings with the Shapeways Stainless steel hips and have I proved stability over stock...they will wear with time (also better than stock) but now are easy to replace. I do not recommend using the Stainless steel hips with the stock d-rings. Please note that some filing of the Stainless steel hips may be required for an optimum fit. I used a Dremel rotary tool. Please also use R/C car gear grease for maximum life.

Echo Herc V5 the full Monty
echotransformer @yutada: yes the parts are available, you should be able to add them to your cart, you can enter your location in Malaysia and the Shapeways website will tell you if they can ship there. (I'm pretty sure they do)
echotransformer @nguoibantot071789 yes, unless you are okay with Shapeways white, black or purple you would need to paint them. I have created videos on how to paint...these videos on my YouTube channel which should help...it's actually not that difficult and uses easy to clean Acryllics with a brush! :)

Wrecktifier Sheild Kit
echotransformer @GamorreanJedi Sure have a look at this video...fast forward to around the 11 minute mark to see how it attaches in combined mode: http://youtu.be/E8THCBhq8hI
Echo Herc Kit V5  Covers Only
echotransformer @djstudiant sure I have added that option for you...
Thigh Filler for Boosticus and Wrecktifier
echotransformer @chrisprime0479@chrisprime0479 Not exactly...although this backpack works with Wrecktifier and the thigh fillers and the treads, there will also be a new pack pack kit with risers for the treads coming soon. It really depends on what you want your Wrecktifier to look like in the end...with raised treads, or treads on his back. :)
Wrecktifier Hand Kit--V5
echotransformer @GamorreanJedi the plan is to eventually release all the parts, see my Facebook page at Echo.TF.Toys for more details!
