Beanie is a transformer that can turn into a car. He can also launch his head off! Just pull the rack puller and his head flies off, hence the name "Beanie"


Assembly is simple! The shorter wheels clip to the feet, the bolts (leg clips) clip the feet to the legs, the longer wheels clip the legs to the hips of the main body, the arm joints (bolts with round ends) go through the "shoulders" and the neck joint. Place the gear in before the neck top, with the + facing upward. Snap the arms into the round sections of the arm joints, with the forearms and claws clipping on through the joints. The head goes on the axle piece and the propeller clips on top. To launch, slide the rack pull into the slot, and then pull! To turn into a car, bend his legs all the way up, rotate the arms around, back over his head, and make sure they are flush with the main body. The claws should latch on just above the "ball holder" of the arm, with the propeller fitting in to the circles under the feet. Any questions or concerns, please let me know!

Am I not getting something? The .zip file does not seem to have all the parts. Specifically the chassis. When I download using " Download all things" I don't get some parts. When I try to download just the chassis, it opens up with a 'txt" type file.

Is there supposed to be a right claw? I can only find beaniefull-_beanie_claw_left-1.STL. No claw_right file. Can I just mirror the left claw?

Thats, a great design..have you checkout the G1 transformers wst...their transformers toys, but 1/6 the size of the original and fully transformable..

I started printing the upper arms and the little joint for attaching the forearm is way too tiny and broke right off also the tiny hole near that same joint failed to print because it too is too thin/tiny.

Gosh darn it! It's just barely outside of my print volume. I think the chassis is the only part I can't print at 100%.

the head piece was in the full file, I added it in now so you should be able to print it by itself!

HUGO! definitely has a tough competitor with this 'Transformer' like design, love it! All the best with the competition results today.

Just me or are we missing the actual head piece here?
