    Question 5mm post Gatling pistols

    Does anyone know if a gatling pistol accessory exists with a 5mm post?

    I'm looking to give this as a weapon to some of my Transformer toys.

    Construct-bots had something like that but it didn't have a pistol handle.

    Question

    Is it still possible to obtain those accessories?
    Or find the toys that come with them?

    I've never really noticed the Constructobot line much.

    Do you have any pictures or figures that had one?

    In the end, it was just as a lot simpler to design and 3D print my own Gatling pistols:

    If designing and 3D printing yourself gattling guns is 'simpler' then you have some serious talent. You should consider uploading your design to shapeways,as its a cool looking set you've made and I am sure others would buy it. Incidentally if you feel like printing a spare and selling it, send me a pm.
    On the lookout for MISB Headmaster Highbrow, Takara or Hasbro. I'm sure I could make you a sweet deal!

    I'm not that great at 3D designing and printing, but I've got enough talent to make some basic items.
    I haven't tried some of my advanced concepts yet because I'm still working on some Dinobot swords which are complex to refine.
    Maybe after the second print run/trial of those swords is done, I'll look into making some of my more advanced concepts.

    Mostly the problem is relating it to a real world item, for example, I made a simple item to fix a design flaw in Siege Sixgun and even though I'd measured every angle and dimension precisely, the item ended up being a failed print because it was like 1-2 mm smaller then it should have been and therefore, dropped out of the sockets because the fit wasn't tight.

    Still wondering if there's a way to scan a real world item to model a physical object inside/around it.
    The one time I tried it as an experiment using someone's homemade 3D laser scanner, the resulting file was just a incomprehensible blob.
    Not exactly what I expected when I was scanning a G1 Sixgun arm.

    If anyone wants these weapons, then they just have to buy a set from Shapeways:
    Gatling Pistols Dual Set

    It's that simple.

    For the record, I'm not making a great deal of profit on this, 2$ USD is my overhead.
    I'm more interested in offering cheap designs that everyone can have for a reasonable price then making a professional profit from it.
    So most of the money goes to Shapeways for the printing costs.
