Thats good.. I can't do those kinda of fixes... can't do anything really.

@  Telly : (25 September 2017 - 03:52 PM)

one of his legs was tight so i had to do the fix. hes all better now

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (25 September 2017 - 02:53 PM)

Why are you doing surgery to Tripty?

@  Telly : (25 September 2017 - 02:49 PM)

got my trypticon. currently doing surgery on him. so nertz to you paladin :p

@  Bass X0 : (25 September 2017 - 01:56 PM)

It takes all kinds of critters to make Farmer Vincent fritters.

@  TM2-Megatron : (25 September 2017 - 01:35 AM)

Sad to say, I'll likely be picking up The Last Knight this week. If nothing else, it should look fantastic on 4K Blu-Ray, and my 4K OLED is still new enough I'm willing to watch things I hate if they look stunning

@  TM2-Megatron : (25 September 2017 - 01:34 AM)

Yeah, I picked it up last time when it got the 3-D conversion re-release treatment

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2017 - 12:57 AM)

To be honest I think I'd rather a copy of The Lion King over a copy of The Last Knight, and I already own a copy of the Lion King on bluray...

@  TM2-Megatron : (25 September 2017 - 12:36 AM)

I spent some time looking for a thread about The Lion King before I figured out the movie you actually meant

@  Noideaforaname : (24 September 2017 - 11:47 PM)

I kinda want to post in that "Win TLK on Blu-Ray" thread, but I don't want to actually win...

@  wonko the sane? : (24 September 2017 - 06:29 PM)

well TS to the toy gods. Website went back up, and I ordered it anyway. Wasn't even for me, it was for my brother...

@  Telly : (24 September 2017 - 05:50 PM)

its the toy gods telling you that you dont need whatever it was you were gonna order

@  wonko the sane? : (24 September 2017 - 02:49 PM)

Arrrg! Just as I was about to make my first purchase from BBTS in years: their website up and dies on me.

@  Msol : (24 September 2017 - 02:35 PM)

Picked up Slugslinger. Awesome figure except for some unfortunate mold degradation. His fists are so loose and held just by friction. Hopefully they don't start falling out randomly.

@  Steevy Maximus : (24 September 2017 - 11:21 AM)

Probably in October/November as retailer flush out everything they can to make Christmas sales

@  Echowarrior : (24 September 2017 - 10:35 AM)

Will Thermidor and PRiD Twinferno ever hit US retail?

@  BlackMax : (23 September 2017 - 01:28 PM)

Found Infernocus at the local TrU today, he's still TFP Legion Abominus for sure, but metal as hug. Pretty cool for $5 more than a Voyager.

@  Shrug : (23 September 2017 - 07:52 AM)

Your PS3s traded souls.

@  2017 : (23 September 2017 - 07:04 AM)

Oh, odd coincidence, this afternoon my PS3 wasn't turning on. I seem to have fixed it tho.

@  Pennpenn : (23 September 2017 - 06:21 AM)

Oh great, my PS3 stopped reading discs. Brilliant.

@  BlackMax : (22 September 2017 - 08:38 PM)

Nope, that is a keen idea though. My team was Sentinel-Hulk-Haggar, Team Huge.

@  Bass X0 : (22 September 2017 - 02:17 PM)

Did anyone have a Prime team in Marvel vs. Capcom 3 consisting of Sentinel, Nova and Nemesis?

@  Robowang : (21 September 2017 - 10:06 PM)

Ok, I can't find the "Savage on a Ravage" pic that soneone pisted. Can anyone link me to it?

@  wonko the sane? : (21 September 2017 - 12:47 PM)

I'm also sure you don't sparkle like a disco ball, otherwise someone woulda run you over by now.

@  Dracula : (21 September 2017 - 12:40 PM)

anyway I don't die in sunlight, I just get tired.

@  Dracula : (21 September 2017 - 12:40 PM)

correct

@  wonko the sane? : (21 September 2017 - 11:46 AM)

I'm pretty sure most vampires would cause a gremlin infestation just for the giggles.

@  Noideaforaname : (21 September 2017 - 11:42 AM)

Hmm, a vampire would have a hell of a hard time getting rid of a Gremlin infestation, wouldn't he?

@  OrionPax44 : (21 September 2017 - 11:13 AM)

Well then there's yellowing but isn't that all of them. I like to leave all my TF's in a hot car all day long to let all their joints turn to jelly.

@  Telly : (21 September 2017 - 11:12 AM)

what about sunlight??

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 September 2017 - 10:50 AM)

KAIJU NOT FOR SALE

@  Dracula : (21 September 2017 - 10:49 AM)

don't get any water on your trypticon, and don't feed him after midnight.

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 September 2017 - 10:42 AM)

I've had mine for two weeks with no problems. Just don't be a hamfist with it.

@  Paladin : (21 September 2017 - 08:36 AM)

assuming they survive transport...

@  Telly : (21 September 2017 - 07:37 AM)

quiet you!

@  Paladin : (21 September 2017 - 06:46 AM)

and the hips should break by Wednesday/.

@  Telly : (20 September 2017 - 09:00 PM)

just ordered tr trypticon. should have it monday :)

@  OrionPax44 : (20 September 2017 - 04:57 PM)

@Robowang I have one somewhere and I can send it to you. Don't worry about it. Just let me find it

@  Bass X0 : (20 September 2017 - 04:43 PM)

Sometime last week, I purchased Hasbro Windblade online then a day or two later, Takara Windblade was announced for only £4.99 more making me instantly regret buying Hasbro's Windblade. Guess I'll be giving Hasbro Windblade to my nephew for Christmas then.

@  Shrug : (20 September 2017 - 02:24 PM)

That whole flat-rate shipping thing makes the math easy.

@  Shrug : (20 September 2017 - 02:23 PM)

4 bucks

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 September 2017 - 02:15 PM)

Hmm. How much is shipping from BBTS?

@  NightViper : (20 September 2017 - 02:09 PM)

Set of the four is still $22 at BBTS

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 September 2017 - 02:00 PM)

Ramhorn is currently available from a third party seller via Amazon for $27.

@  Robowang : (20 September 2017 - 11:47 AM)

Anybody have the TR PM OP trading card they don't want? I lost mine! Will pay you for it.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (20 September 2017 - 11:35 AM)

If you don't need her I'll take her off ya.

@  BlackMax : (20 September 2017 - 10:04 AM)

When I get that power-batteryOptimus I swear I will carry it everywhere. It'll be like having a useful tool AND being six years old again all at once.

@  Robowang : (20 September 2017 - 09:58 AM)

I guess he's gone now. Oh well.

@  Robowang : (20 September 2017 - 09:56 AM)

I saw Ramhorn all over ebay for $16 a week ago or so.

@  Shrug : (20 September 2017 - 09:02 AM)

Just ordered Arcee.  I don't need her.  But she's pink.  And a robot.  A combination I love.

RAMPAGER REX & TERRIFYING TYRANNOSAURUS ARE COMPLETE!
The tyrannosaurus rex is the first complete Combat Creature design, Nick Tyranno tested the design in Shapeways’ Full Color Sandstone material and Strong & Flexible plastic versions are successfully out of the printer. The upper arms have been reinforced based on Nick’s feedback and the figures are ready for general purchase.
 
I have applied a markup, I only make about $5 per figure once they are tested.

 

Rampager Rex is here.

Terrifying Tyrannosaurus is here.

The white polished Rampager Rex that I ordered came in today. I'm really quite impressed with the smoother finish that still keeps all the details.

 

The arms are quite tight and after reading Nick's comments I'm treating them extra carefully. But that's the only "problem" that I'm having as it's otherwise pretty damn awesome!

NV: It should be less of a problem with the polished plastic, since it can bend. I'm glad you like him thus far.

Muty McFly Parody Figure (Beta)
The 80s are back in all their technicolor horror with Muty McFly, a horrifying time-displaced combination of man and insect. Who could have predicted that plutonium, time travel and an untrained teenage test subject could go horribly wrong?
 
Muty comes with two points of articulation and is in full color for Full Color Sandstone and (eventually) Full color plastic. He is roughly the size and style of a 1980s Battle Beast figurine. 
Muty is the latest Combat Creature pending testing in full color sandstone before cost markup is applied to his model. He is the same size as a Battle Beast, with a 3mm grip and two points of articulation at the shoulders, which are 5mm pegs.

I got my first test prints of my Combat Creatures,Titanic Triceratops in colored sandstone, Rampager Rex in Full Color Plastic, the combat creature minis in green polished plastic, and the still-awaiting-SuperFanArt approvals Beastformers Twilight Sparkle.
 
They’re shown with the Battle Beast Hippo in the first shot for scale.
 
What I’ve learned from these prints:
 
Full Color Sandstone’s tolerances are so divergent from the Strong and Flexible Plastics that I’m going to be putting up two files for each creature. The one done for Full Color Sandstone will not have arm articulation, it doesn’t work well even when the pegs are the right size. This means that until Shapeways offers Full Color Plastic for sale the full color versions will only be available as non-articulated figurines. 
 
Full Color plastic is really nice. The shoulder joints fit perfectly and the color is very pretty (better than what shows up in the pics.).
 
That said, full color sandstone is also spiffy. It has a nice heft and isn’t as fragile as feared, but it is meant mainly for display statuettes. I don’t see this as a big deal, since how many of us are smashing our desk toys together anyhow?
 
I’m going to be updating my models accordingly throughout the afternoon/evening. Check them out here.
 
Keep in mind that prices on strong-and-flexible plastic will be changing (mostly dropping) on the 7th. If you want something in sandstone or detail plastic, however, those aren’t changing and you can order immediately.
 
Also, a new creation!
 
tumblr_ncwwrsicC61qlxixqo4_1280.jpg
 
Fetid Fly!
 
I went more TMNT with this one, with dripping ooze, a garbagecan backpack (rusted out bottom revealing trash inside, etc). He, of course, reuses parts of Muty McFly.

Shapeways altered their pricing formulas on the "Strong and Flexible" plastics. While this has required the addition of sprues/runners on some models, the cost to produce most of my models has dropped, in some cases quite substantially. I've gone through and updated the prices accordingly.
 
 
In addition to the Combat Creatures, there are 5mm Transformers-compatible weapons, a pack of Jack-Kirby inspired Masters of the Universe compatible 4mm-grip weapons and some other fun surprises. Check it out!

Shapeways resolution tends towards sandpapery unless you get the more expensive materials and finish.
