Nice work! Are you selling those adapters? These work on the sentinel ride armors?

I won't be. I sent @ChaoticYeti a drawing of them. I think he's going to make them available.

I need to get the Sentinel RA's figured out. I have a few ideas how I want to pull it off but I haven't tried any of them yet. I'll post pics when I come up with something.:good:

I think I just figured out a really simple design for the Ride Armor's. It will be a bit before I can have them laser'd out. But it should work. If it does @ChaoticYeti will have no issue 3D printing them.

I think he's going to do the Beagle/Toynami adapters. I sent him a drawing this morning.

Here is is in all it's high tech glory. An adapter for the Sentinel Ride Armors so they will work on YetiStands. What you do is remove the bit on the end of the Sentinel stand that goes in the Ride Armor "butt" and put it on this adapter. Then this will bolt to a YetiStand. I'm getting a few samples laser'd out of stainless steel because that's easiest/fastest for me. And it allows the re-use of the Sentinel fasteners. If @ChaoticYeti is going to be interested in these I don't know.

Hope to have the sample pieces in a week. I'll post pics as soon as I get a stand set up. Right now my plan is to mount three to one stand. I imagine you could go as high as four without much trouble.

@tekering did you ever get Blueberry and King Crab?

I spent over $1300 on Blueberry Crabs -- just to ensure they'd get produced, mind you -- and multiple Kings as well, but I got stalled trying to source appropriately strong joints to articulate the Kings (I want action figures, not static models!), and... other projects have since occupied my attention.  8)

Those two were my favorite Invid build ups. 

Oh, I much prefer the Helper Crab.  Those ball-joints solve all sorts of problems.  :wub:

Hi everyone,

I share this I did:

They are the monitor screen of the Mospeada riobot.

I leave the file in .ai format, 10x10cm document size CMYK. Ready to print on sticker paper.

PS: I had to simplify several parts, because the screen is too small.
I did some tests with my epson printer and it works pretty well.

Enjoy it!
Thank you

Well, my Yellow broke during transformation. There's a metal pin the gauntlet swivels on that must have been damaged during assembly. The part was crooked in comparison to the other side and as the housing rotated (which was notably harder to rotate than the other side) the peg snapped off where the housing met the support. I drilled it all out and replaced with a 1.5 mm hobby rod. I might head to the hardware store to find a 1.5 mm thick nail and replace my hobby rod with that. My fix works but the flat head on a nail would prevent the whole assembly from walking upward during handling. I finished my review anyway:

I wonder if this method would work for that area?

No. The broken part needs to pivot while also having a hint of flexibility. CA glue has very poor resistance to torsional loads, so not only will it not work, but it'll also leave your parts caked with unsightly CA residue. Best bet would be to back-engineer the part and 3D print something in ABS.

It's fixed though certainly not as strong. I took a #16 wire nail, used wire cutters to trim it at the right length, used a hand drill to remove the existing peg both from the rotating housing and the base, then put a drip of glue in the base and set the cut nail into it with the rotating housing already attached. To ensure the housing could still rotate I kept twisting it during the early stages of the drying. For the moment, everything is fine, but I will be keeping that ball joint disconnected in armor mode going forward (it's the right arm and that makes it easier to pose anyway) and I will also only be reconnecting the ball joint when transformation is complete. I think between those two steps it should be fine.

One year later on the same event they showed a color models for both Legioss. Not to mention a Ride Armor mode display of Houquet. ;)
