Picked these up today. Shapeways had raised their shipping costs.. so me and a friend decided to pool in and order our prints together so that we could split the shipping costs. The package arrived a week back, but i was so busy at work and other stuff.. i could only go pick it up today.
The design is from a “Crusader”robot i was designing a while back.. heres a sketch
