    Yeah, that's the Black Mamba one.  If you still have the box that's their BMB logo on the corner.  I personally don't have it, as I'm not super into collecting Bayverse figures, but I got Ben's review (that's Ben's Collectibles, or Ben's KOllectibles) and he seemed to really like it.

    Yeah I hear you on Bayverse Transformers! I hated the designs they looked like Bionicle to me. However I did like Sidesipe's design but hated the movie Revenge of the Fallen!

    That looks like Gigapower's Swoop (and that pic right there show's why I passed on ToyWorld's Prime- I don't know why they thought they should scale it with the 3A Prime that already exists instead of MP-10, around which almost every other transforming Prime is scaled).  But what Sideswipe is that?  The Black Mamba one?

    The Side Swipe is the LS-08 Corvette Assassin, I'm assuming this is Black Mamba? And yes it is Gigapower Swoop. The scale matches my MP-01 so I'm fine with it Still waiting on the issue with the head antennas to be resolved!

    Nah, I imagine it just got jostled around too violently in the tray; there's nothing securing it in place, after all.  I can't imagine it happens very often, though.

    Did it come from ShowZ, @RedLion?

    Yes you are correct! Also the packing inside of the box allowed the main box to slide around during transit!! The antenna and parts of the body are made out of a model kit quality plastic instead of more durable ABS. It is an outstanding piece of work however some of the material choices are questionable for that price!

    How does that even break like that, in the tray?  I want to guess cracked at the factory, before or during putting it in its tray. 

    Yeah they had nothing securing the body of the robot in place and also the box that the main box was in didn't have proper packing so the inner box slid around during shipping like a pinball in a pinball machine!

    Yea this one has the wings but I like the custom more without them because of the more imposing silhouette it has vs. the show.


    I can dig that! That pose is Boss!!

    Is the figure in this shot from Dragonar? I've never seen this one!!

    It looks like the site administrators are finally aware of the problem, but are taking their time with the fix. They suspended all paid transactions for now, it doesn't seem like a region thing.

    I'll let you guys know when I've migrated the files to a new site.

    Thank you so much!! Cheers!

    While we're playing with renders, here's what it might look like with minimal paint/stickers.


    Very Nice! The ARMDs look very god as well! I'm still not able to download the files, I wonder if it is because I'm in the USA? Please let me know when and if you have plans to publish the files on another site!

    A resin printer would be ideal. I think if the model is scaled to 1.2x, it'll hit the 12 inch mark. I may have some options for making a short run of kits, but the biggest roadblock is shipping - way too expensive from here.

    It looks like it's a problem with the Stripe payment processor on their end. It could be a mobile device or region thing?

    If the problem persists, I'll look into migrating the files to another site.

    I will try again  later today and on Friday. If I have any issues I will let you know. Also are you planning to release the Armed Carriers soon, and where are you located?

    Also I would only use the resin printer to print mold able parts, then cast the parts in the proper color. Even though I know that would take a lot of effort!

    In theory, the model is designed to be cast-friendly. I suppose under ideal circumstances, somebody could make a production quality version.

    I stuck with the TV version because it's mechanically simple compared to the DYRL version. (And less parts/detail to model).

    There's a enough room to fit a simple electronics package with some modification - if it's printed large enough, you can install all sorts of gimmicks.

    It's about 9 inches tall in Storm Attacker mode.

    Nice! I wish I had an resin style printer and mold making abilities!  9 inches tall is a nice size I would like to see it 12 inches tall if electronics were inside. You should consider a way to make this into a kit so that you can be rewarded with all your hard work! Be careful of Etsy, if you upload a Manufacturer in China could steal your design and do a short run, making a fortune off your design! 

    With all that said, this need to be made into a product similar to the 3rd party Transformers!!

  10. This is Awesome Global's Pipe Holder! I don't know how I missed this post?! Everything about this design screams fun and would be cool with Lights & Sound! This compliments the joke machines very well, and I wish Bandai would bring them back!

    It would be cool if this was a kit that uses ABS with some die-cast so the final assembly would be a more toy / hobby grade product. You could also offer swap-able main cannons, Bridge / Head, Feet, and arms to switch between TV and movie SDF-1's. 

    I would love if this design had an effects sensor in it so while you transform it it would make the sounds effects. Light up thrusters and bridge with sound effects would be cool!

    How tall is the 3d printed toy in Storm Attacker?

    Mandarake actually canceled my order, as the YF-19 had already been sold. 


    I'm actually slightly relieved, as that was kind of a lot of money to spend all at once, considering I payed the Nippon-Yasan markup for the DX VF-1A. Going to wait a little before re-ordering, I think...

    Mandrake cancelled mine as well. We will have to wait for the YF-19 YF-21 2 pack from Bandai!! Don't worry it will probably be less than $1000 US dollars!

    Mandarake has it from Y26000 to Y28000. Nippon-Yasan has it for Y31500. But those without shipping yet. So more or less you will play safe within the budget from $250 to $300.


    Thanks  I will check this out.

    One just came up in the for sale section for only $250.  Shipping is $50 from Australia, but that's about the same total that I paid from Japan.  I think there may be another for $280 iirc.  Might be sold though.

    Thanks for the info. Where is the store?
