  1. I have all three of these, and they're still on display and still some of my absolute favorites. The core figures aren't really parts-forming, except for the lower fairing/backpack and exhaust becoming a weapon. The parts-forming is mostly storage of weapons and accessories, which I am totally ok with. These are great figures and what got me into 3p.
  2. Possibly. The 3-d printing is sort of a side gig for me, but my main job is 95% work from home anyway, so the shutdown hasn't really affected me yet. On the other hand, if clients start getting worried about the economy and get nervous about spending money where it isn't absolutely necessary, then yes, I might find myself with some free time there.
  3. I keep meaning to 3-d print all the various upgrades I've come up with, but even with 6 printers, I never seem to get around to it.
  4. Still frustrated that by the time I got the metallic Yellow it was too late to send away for the special box and parts.
  5. Love it. Too bad I haven't been able to get my hands on any Rideback items other than the original manga.
  6. During my engineering days, I sometimes did like materials with like, but sometimes dissimilar made more sense. if you knew that there was going to be wear, but one part was easier to replace when it wore out than the other, then you made that part out of the weaker material. Not saying that's the case here, but that was the theory. Of course, other times, it's just cost. You want to make parts plastic, but it financially makes sense to use off the shelf metal pins, so you use those with plastic surrounding them.
  7. I'm very happy with the Arcadia one. Honestly, I like all of the others too, but don't think they're worth it unless you get a really REALLY good discount off the asking price. The Arcadia is, in my opinion, worth what they ask (considering the niche market, of course).
  8. Sadly, life has been keeping me pretty busy lately. Still watching the threads though, just not buying as much fun stuff...
  9. Heads up, all: The windshield is BARELY supported in there, but is retained by a thin enough piece where, if not aligned perfectly when transforming, the tab holding it in breaks off. Supergluing now...
  10. Well, looks like DHL lied about that Monday delivery... because both my Yellows just showed up.
  11. DHL says my Yellows should be delivered on Monday. Definitely looking forward to this.
  12. I have to say, this is looking like a much more robust design than I was expecting. I'm actually a bit impressed.
  13. Read Furman's Transformers: Re:Generation One (or whatever it was called... from like 5 years ago, when he continued his original run from the Marvel TF at IDW, as opposed to his early world-building IDW stuff). He's been phoning in garbage for a while now.
  14. This isn't the Arcadia one, right? I thought that the Arcadia one was pretty much ready to go at this point.
