Apex Set for GenScrg

Apex Set for GenScrg 3d printed Figurines Miniatures
If you want that extra "WOW" factor in your collection, the Apex Add-on kit is what you need!! (Model shown was printed in Frosted Ultra Detail) Only a print of the digital model is included-all other items sold separately. IMPORTANT: To attach the Apex add-on kit, unscrew and remove the front portion of the toy’s old head. Align the Apex head with the back portion still attached to the toy. Mark a drill point on the Apex head through the screw cavity. Drill a small hole from the marked point-careful not to puncture the front of the model. Finally, attach the Apex head to the toy with a small screw. No screw is provided. (If desired, you may disregard previous instructions and simply glue the Apex head to the toy) The toy is fully transformable with the Apex head attached and "DOES NOT" require any modification to the toy. The pics above show the "Frosted Ultra Detail" material, how it may be attached on the Transformers Generations Scourge toy and an artist's paint application on the Apex Set.

@TecromDesigns , by all means hit me up! It would be very interesting to be involved any form with a toyline. Hopefully we'll be in touch!

@Solomus LOL, if I ever get my own toyline and need a toy consultant or an IT guy, don't be surprised if I hit you up. BTW I think Mattel tried to do the robot/mech thing with their Hot Wheels brand a few years back. It was really short lived, so I guess it didn't live up to expectations. Mattel should definitely revisit the robot thing though, but not as a direct competion to TF, but something along the lines of Robotech or Exosquad. TF is too much of a juggernaut to go up against. Remember Hasbro tried to compete with Barbie in the 80's with JEM, and its taken almost 30 years for the pinked haired rocker have another go with the new line.

@TecromDesigns i guess I'll have to live vicariously through you. :), I have no doubt if you want to work for any toy company they would be luck to have you. FYI, I used to work across the street from Mattel. They are local and based out of El Segundo. I always wondered why they didn't want to try to compete in the transforming robot category. I'm sure there are some properties they can pick up or create and with designers like you they could probably have some thing. Wishful thinking, lol.

@Solomus An IT guy huh? Wow, that's some technical stuff. Yeah, its quite a bit to know and its definitely a competitive industry. Well, most of my work in the industry were traditional sculpts. Along with a team, I worked on models for Fantasia 2000 (statues), Six Flags (characters seen around the park), V.I.P.(TV show: figurines), Godzilla (toys), Star Wars: Episode 1 (busts), Scooby-Doo (PVC figures) etc.

@TecromDesigns, lol I may have to rethink this. I have a background in IT/Web Design/Linux System Administration. My hobbies include drawing/arts and crafts but probably not at a professional level. I would take aim at TV/Film/Entertainment. Thanks for the info, I'll check out Maya, 3D Studio Max and Zbrush. Is there any piece of work you are particularly proud of? I'd like to check it out. It's be cool to say hey I sort of know the person who worked on this. Thanks again.

@Solomus If you want to learn how to design, the ability to draw is extremely helpful. Personally, I'm a traditionally trained sculptor and took up digital modeling a few years back to broaden my skill set. Graduating from Long Beach State with an art degree gave me a good design foundation that helped me land jobs in the entertainment industry in the past. I've done contract work for Disney, Warner Bros., Tricon, Creation Ink etc. However, if you have the means, and would like to be educated by the best and the brightest in the entertainment industry, I'd highly recommend, the Art Institutes, Cal Arts, Stan Winston's School and my favorite the Gnomon School of Visual Effects. However, if you want to get started, you've got to ask yourself, is this for a hobby or a career? With recent advancement in rapid prototyping i.e. 3D printing, there is a lot of competition out there and it will only continue to grow. However, if you want to get a good clean jump on design, you've got to know what industry you'd like to pursue, if any. To give you a basic idea, the TV/Film, Game and Entertainment industries use Maya, 3D Studio Max and Zbrush. These three are pretty standard for those industries. For Industrial Design (designing parts for almost everything under the sun including Mechanical parts) it’s Solidworks, Rhino, Spaceclaim and CAD based programs. For Engineering (Planes/Cars etc.), it's Catia, Solidworks, Rhino etc. I hope this helps.

@TecromDesigns, cool. I may go to botcon too. I am in the la area as well but more inland. I Would like to learn how to design, any suggestions on where I would begin? And good luck with Hasbro, you should really go for it! If I had the skills I would too!

@Solomus Thanks for the picture and suggestions bro. I seriously think that arm mount "makes" that character. Yeah, the Exosuits were really fun and I'm glad they were well received by the community. I was afraid they'd kick me off the boards for modeling organics. lol. Mmm...an homage to the Go-bots. I'd love to see Hasbro take a crack at it. As for the BOTCON sets, they've had some fun characters in the past and I'm digging a lot of the figures in the set. Man it'd be awesome to work for Hasbro, Boss Fight or TFclub. I'm in L.A., so I might be a good idea for me to attend. Maybe they're looking for a few modelers. Well, thanks again and keep up the good work. And don't forget to say hi on the boards!! -Tecrom

I'm giving away a trade secret!!! Lol, u can get it @ walmart. Can be handle within 1 hour to be safe (label says 15 min.). I believe fans would like a lot of the expensive/hard to get items. Ex: (botcon exclusives) Devcon, figure itself is hard to get & expensive. Not to mention you have to buy the whole set of figures when you may only want 1 of them. My advice, create a cannon mount for this set as I did. Your exo-suit idea was great, new/fresh. Your alpha trion head is a great service to fans as well. Haven't seen either of these anywhere else. Gobot Leader-1 head would be nice for a generations seeker seeing the 3rd party Cy-Kill & Turbo on the way.

@Solomus Hey can you post a quick pic of the spray can you used? There are a few guys who've inquired about a good no mix shade of blue to use on these heads. But yeah, please check out and "like" my facebook page at www.facebook.com/tecromdesigns I'm going to start posting up teasers of upcoming models. I'd love to hear your thoughts on what you think and what other interests TF fans are into. A lot of time, its just a guessing game for me. Thanks again!!-Tecrom

@TecromDesigns thank you for the custom set! Used blue fusion plastic spray paint. They don't make different shades so I guess I just got lucky with the color. Custom cannon mount was made with the usual quick setting sculptors putty & sprayed w/the same paint. I may order you impactor set as well. Can't wait for your next design!!!

@Solomus Wow that came out real nice!! Stellar job on the paint apps- you color matched the toy perfectly. It really brings the character to life and by mounting the blaster on his forearm, you completely sealed the deal. It totally changes the feel of the base figure. Great job all around. You should post it on TFW. Well, if you like this model as much as I do, I have a feeling you'll get a "kick" out of the next. Please stay tuned. -Tecrom

Added custom removable sticker autobot sticker, blue deception sticker and custom removeable arm cannon mount. No paint apps because I always like my customs to be able to revert back to the original figure.
