RTS Deluxe Perceptor Accessories
Hyoumaru Any chance of this getting a hi-def black acrylate option? It feels like this'd look great with TR Perceptor.

Grumpy Old Sergeant's Face
Hyoumaru I already like it more than the stock face, but is it possible to get a closed mouth version?
Titans Return Cliffjumper Upgrade Kit
Hyoumaru @Caliburst Tamiya paints, gloss red and flat gray with sky blue for the eyes, clearcoated with Mr Hobby.
Hyoumaru @TrentTroop admittingly I ordered these parts in black hi-def acrylate, which I had to order the parts seperately in rather than the kit to have access to that material, but given you can order these in FUD I feel my comments on the molds apply to this too.
Hyoumaru This is a really great product, even if you're completely new to shapeways-based transformer modifying. The headmold is spot on for G1 Cliffjumper and fits great on Roadburn's body. The Glass Gun is perfectly sized, looks great, and can store inside the car's cockpit when in car mode. Strongly recommended for those looking for a good Legends-scale Cliffjumper that actually looks like Cliffjumper.
Cliffjumper Head for Titans Return Roadburn
Hyoumaru This is a really great product, even if you're completely new to shapeways-based transformer modifying. The head mold strongly resembles the G1 Cliffjumper design and fits great on Roadburn's body Strongly recommended for those looking for a good Legends-scale Cliffjumper that actually looks like Cliffjumper. Be sure to order in Black Hi-Def Acrylate for the best results. Tamiya-brand paint highly recommended for coloring it.

Galvatron Turnable Shoulder Pylons
Hyoumaru Was just informed by shapeways these can't be printed in hi-def acrylate, so they cancelled my order.

Galvatron Shoulder Pylons
Hyoumaru @mctheo2000 Oh geez, missed the turnable ones entirely. Guess I'll be ordering a pair of those now.
Hyoumaru The shaping works really well, but they lift just a bit too high from the shoulder surface, and as a result they look a tiny bit silly. It might work better if it had recesses to cover the front peg mount so it would look more flush to the shoulder surface.
Back Spike Thruster for TR Galvatron
Hyoumaru It was actually a lot shorter than I expected it to be, but still glad to have it.

TR: Crocjoint for reptiles v1.2
Hyoumaru To be honest, I'm fairly disappointed with how this turned out. To begin with, the pegs used to make the joint is positively tiny, I'm terrified of snapping it while trying to turn it. Secondly, the joint now being lower on the body has offset the horizontal-alligning with the upper legs, and because the joints are so weak Skullsmasher is now perpetually sitting. Can't removed the balljoints to try and tighten them for fear of snapping the printed plastic. The idea was sound at the very least, since they work great in robot mode.

Nautica's Wrench (5mm)
Hyoumaru @TrentTroop Just got a reply from Shapeways, they're refuting the claim this is a bad print, saying this is typical of hi-def black acrylate printing.
Hyoumaru Just got the wrench in hi-def black acrylate. There's some issues though. Aside from the fact the monitor-side of the wrench is covered in pockmarks, I assume from the molding, it doesn't fit very well in a 5MM hole hand. It can get slightly in there before it can't go in any further, and I fear of breaking it while trying to remove it
Nautical Femmebot head (Clear FUD/FED parts)
Hyoumaru @glaug Order the medium-size for all 3 pieces, FUD Visor Acrylate head and BSF neck to apply to TR Blurr, got it.
Hyoumaru @glaug Okay, thank you
Hyoumaru @glaug Okay, so ideally I'd want to order the transparant visor/lightpiping eyes with the solid face piece, those'll show up as versions labled as small?
Hyoumaru @glaug Unfortunately from the sounds of things then that's way too big for what I'm trying to pull off, that's unfortunate.
Hyoumaru @glaug That leads to a followup question then. Exactly how big is the medium-sized Nautica head when assembled compared to a TR headmaster head? I'm asking because ideally I would like to apply the head de-headmastering process to Nautica that was applied to Blurr, which involves cutting/shaving the internal area of the canopy piece so a Titan Master with its legs removed would fit inside it.
Hyoumaru Any chance for a TR-compatable version of this head setup?

Potential Lad's Headmaster replacement
Hyoumaru My order came today, the back of the head fits onto the faceplate just fine, but the ball socket is too loose to grip the actual ball from the neckjoint, both for the neck it came with and the ones used by the actual titan master.

Trigger  JET JOINT
Hyoumaru @luchengshangx That does not answer the question. Is this for G1 Brainstorm? Generations Brainstorm? Titans Return Brainstorm? What is it even meant to attach to?

Notorious Weaponmaster's Kibble
Hyoumaru @SteamShield Would have ordered it in black acrylic but had no idea how well that'd hold up under any kind of pressure, but moot point since this isn't a part meant to be seen at any point anyway.
Hyoumaru Got it cast in black strong and flexible, nosecone tends to come off a lot more easily than I'd like while in robot mode but still works great for what I bought it for, great piece. Unfortunately using this means the de-headmastering fix used for the mold is pointless, but it's much easier to accept Brainstorm being a headmaster than Blurr.
Skullcruncher Face, IDW (Titans Return)
Hyoumaru Best ordered in Black Hi-Def Acrylic, works fantastic! Infinitely better than the stock face.

Hardhead Face, IDW (Titans Return)
Hyoumaru Definitely worth a buy if you don't want to shell out for Takara's just for the none-faceplate version, just before to get it cast in hi-def acrylic at best, anything less and the detail doesn't come out as strongly, which will complicate things when it comes to paint.

Combat Tank Waist Support v2
Hyoumaru @SteamShield Ah okay. That leaves my only concern being the 2mm bolt. Where could I find that to use?
Hyoumaru But can he still transform into tank or limb modes with this applied?

Shockwave gun handle(short)
Hyoumaru Got it and downright loving it, solves the lack of Legends Shockwave having a handle in Alt mode AND it's a nice solution to the weak tolerance strength in the PE hands wrist piece, if you angle the handle back far enough to keep it held straight. It sticks out the back a bit in Robot mode, but it's honestly not an issue. Would highly recommend, but be sure to get it cast either purple or pink plastic.
CW Megatron - Cannon Beefomizer
Hyoumaru I'm a little confused, I ordered the part cast in White Strong and Flexible to get the "polished" texture since grainyness (the same kind I experienced when I ordered a part cast in black from someone else) would be an issue, but the cannon part arrived just as grainy as that part, if not moreso. That issue aside it fits great on the cannon, currently trying to work around the grainyness with multiple paint and as much sanding as I can apply without destroying the shape.
