Cuteness in abundance! On account of how I'm not very good at drawing realistically?

Favourites

My favourites are an exclusive club, and the place where I put the best of the best. If it made me smile, or if it's a bit under-appreciated, or if it's just darn cool... these are all ways to get in here.

I think it couldn't hurt to try DX sized Explorer and Bartender.  Even if you only make a couple of sales on them, it's still more than you'd get if they were absent from your Shapeways store.  I think there's a bit of demand for Lost Lighters without proper toys (Rung probably being the top of that list) and a lot of people stateside are having trouble getting the Hasbro Swerve, so who knows.  Of course, I'm ignorant of the whole Shapeways process, so feel free to tell me if I'm talking out of my ass.

lol, yeah that's the whole reason that I've started w/ these characters ^__^

Of course the downside is that my figures, while slavishly accurate to the source material, don't transform.  Also, there's the aspect that they are basically model kits that require you to do your own painting and sanding and what not, and also cost quite a bit more than what you would expect a retail figure to cost. :/

I'm still planning on continuing w/ the Lost Light crew and once I've finished up the MiniBot version of Bartender, I'll start on "Wave 2" which will include a new body type that's taller than the MiniBot body used by these guys but shorter than the Titan body type used by Uber Magnum.  That will open up my line to that size range of characters ^__^
Guys near the top of my list are Psychiatrist and Dr. Leg.  I think that Database will be part of the wave too so maybe I should also do BrainSurgeon... and I'd like to include a Titan figure in each wave... maybe Stomper...

Ah, so no more Action Formers or DXes in that sort of scale then?  That's a shame.  I'd love for something in scale with the rest of my Hasbro toys.  You've still got me interested with Psychiatrist, Dr Leg and Database, though!

I hope so!  I'm really looking forward to Explorer and what else you can do with your Action Formers!

I'm in the process of converting all the Action Former figures I did into MiniBot figures (about 2.5" tall and kinda compatible with Kreon stuff, ends up looking kinda Chibi).  I was never able to get the joint tolerances where I'd like w/ the Action Formers, with the exception of the DX sized Disposal.  You think it'd be worth it to DX size Explorer?  No point in doing Bartender, I think.  What with the awesome one Hasbro is doing.
