G1 Spoiler for Titans Return Hot Rod
Quixtrike @carloj2011 My apologies for not getting this to you sooner. I was struggling with nearly constant migraines this summer. Here's a picture of where/how to break the original spoiler so that the new one can clip on over it easily.
Quixtrike @carloj2011 Ha, very good point, I guess I never added that picture I'm referencing, or perhaps it was removed last time I updated file for this model. I'll have to take a closer look once I'm back at my home computer. Thanks for the heads up!

MTMTE Megatron Shoulder Detail
Quixtrike @fbc739c First off, let me say, Thank you for the comment! That's a complicated aspect of these parts for me to explain, but when I've shared these pictures on Facebook I've endured a number of complaints from people saying how the plastic doesn't match and they don't like Shapeways... but the silver metallic plastic really does look pretty awesome on this figure in ways that don't seem to come across well when photographed; can't quite figure out why. I think you need to put it in a lot of light to get a good photo of the detail, but the extra light blows out the very subtle contrast difference between the colors/shades and reflective properties of these different plastic materials and extenuates the difference too much. Either way, I always look at the pictures and think "it looks WAY better in real life than it does in the pictures", but saying that in the comments makes me feel like I'm just trying to sell it, or lie or something, so I appreciate you mentioning that. Anyway, I have definitely considered creating some leg pieces, as I would personally like having that as well. Right now my attention is diverted to figuring out how to fix my broken 3D printer, so I can do my own quick/cheep prototyping. Once I get that up and running again, I want to finish my MTMTE Rodimus parts (which I've had quite a bit of inquire about) then I just may turn my focus back to Megatron, so it may take me a while, but long story short, yes Lost Light Megatron leg parts are indeed on my list ;^) Thanks for the Feedback!

MTMTE Rodimus chest (Part 1 of 2)
Quixtrike @fbc739c thanks! the Rev 2 version needs some revisions. My home 3D printer is not great at thin parts, so it's been hard for me to prototype at home at has taken me longer per prototype rev cycle and I got busy with Lost Light Megatron because prototyping at home was much easier. I'll definitely get back to Rodimus though I want a finished version of this project too! If you follow me, or my shop I'll let you know when I get the fixed version up for sale.
Quixtrike @fb9f61e This rev. 2 version should (hypothetically) allow for transformation, but that hasn't been fully tested yet. DailyDurian just ordered this new version of the parts, and I'm working on getting myown personal 3D printer set up for quicker prototyping, but yes, the plan is for this chest piece to eventually allow for transformation as well. The leg armor (not yet available) will not stay on for the transformation. All that said, it's definitely designed to preference the robot mode aesthetically. The version in the side-by-side picture currently above is rev.1 which does not allow for transformation, and is also a bit smaller than rev.2 will be. I'll post new pictures when the new parts arrive.
Quixtrike @DailyDurian I think I'd recommend the Red and Yellow polished strong and flexible plastic that I have listed. I've had mixed experience with the black high def, and particularly seeing as these are not overtly detailed (like a head sculpt) I think strong and flexible is probably the way to go. Thanks for the heads up about the incorrect link; Fixed.
Quixtrike @DailyDurian I designed this in two parts for the purpose of printing it in two colors and not needing any paint (seeing as these colors happen to look great on that toy as is). I was quite pleased with the resolution/quality of these prints in the flexible red and yellow, and seeing as they are quite thin, the flexible material might be better. If you're still interested in the black High Def, let me know, as I would rather fuse the yellow and red parts together and upload a new high def option; that way it would be much cheaper than ordering two different parts separately.
Quixtrike @DailyDurian Ha! I'll admit, I'm quite surprised that you found it considering the fact that it's not for sale and I didn't post a link on Unicron.com. Thought about not posting anything about it until I had recieved rev 2 parts in hand, but I figured why not post a bit of teaser ;^)
Quixtrike @DailyDurian Thanks for your interest. This is rev. 1 which does not allow for Transformation. After I received the first prototypes, I made some significant changes, and have to upload these new parts. Hoping to get the chest piece available soon. I could upload those and make them available beta if you're interested.
