jeffperrin77@wargod535 Yes sir, they are. I printed some out on my own machine, painted them and I like how they turned out for me. To bad I'm moving and have him packed up, or I'd included a photo.
jeffperrin77@josh23920 I didn't like the Perfect Effect set at all. I do dig the PE G1 head, just like you. But I needed something that fixed the combiner's torso arms from untabbing. I sat and watched reviews on Youtube by John Garringer, Baltmatrix, Breaux Man, Tambeyoda...etc etc. The PE head appears to be the same width, but taller. I believe it would work just fine. I know the CW Menasor head looks lame, but I'm okay with it as long as he has these big shoulder vents, and Motormaster's arms locked in place. If you look at the photo in my reply to DeliriousFire, you'll see the clearance of the head between the shapeways part. Hopes this info helps you out.
jeffperrin77@DeliriousFire Yeah I hated how floppy the shoulders were and he didn't have those shoulder vents look I wanted. But to answer your question, no this will not work with the PE kit. My current printable model on here has a larger support bar across the back with two peg holes for weapons. The following picture is a early prototype, missing the two added points I just mentioned. My shapeway's kit would obstruct the PE's two shoulder vents when they clam shell close on his back. Hope this info helps.
jeffperrin77 Received the face plate last month, after painting and slight modification. It's glued to my Daniel's Exosuit. We spoke before about this issue I was having on designing Arcee's face. I'm so pleased on how this finishes the function of what my designed figure does. The photo isn't a portrait of your product (you can tell it's your design), but wanted to show it attached to mine, and what that looks like.
jeffperrin77@fb3f7f6 I haven't printed it out, as of yet. A couple people have and I believe it's probably shipped by now. Shapeways notified me on Aug 24 that it had a greater then 80% success rate after the first print. Just waiting on a review of it.
jeffperrin77 These are kinda cool looking displays. Just a suggestion, maybe a MASK & VENOM worded two pack. And maybe design a couple little slates along the front so someone can sticker or paint the names of the guy and mask helmet.
jeffperrin77 I'm having a slight issue with the boosters as well. When they are installed flush. When you go to open the legs for transformation and swivel the thigh into the leg cavity. The booster's wall, under the thrusters, hit a certain point and pop the whole piece out of place (considering I haven't glued them yet). It hinders the opening of the legs like TFC's Rhadamanthus (Leozak) figure. Or am I just doing something wrong?
jeffperrin77 Word to the wise, sand the handles down ever so slightly. Applying paint will only allow you to slide them in at about two clicks before you get that feeling of something about to snap or the clips start to bow out, beginning to look awkward. They make great melee weapons though and give the copter a great G1 look.
jeffperrin77 Having that peg hole underneath is perfect for me. My G1 Bruticus always had Vortex's small gun clipped at the wrist. That small peg hole allows my CW Bruticus to have that small touch that I enjoyed as a kid. Many thanks to that design idea. Not to great on helicopter mode, unless on his foot/hand piece or on a display stand.
jeffperrin77 Out of each upgrade, this is by far my favorite for just two little parts. To be able to keep the blades extended in robot and limb mode and having it sit a little higher. Wish there was a rating system, would get a 10 out of 10 by me.
