A big thanks to you guys for over 6.8K views! Wow!
Thought I'd have a crack at making a transformer, pretty pleased at the result! I'll put it up on shapeways in a little bit, but they set the price pretty high up, but I'm willing to do commissions. If you're interested in making and selling him, contact me to negotiate the price.
I have 3 sizes in the model, ~7cm, ~10cm and ~14cm (Legion, Legends and Deluxe). Simply isolate the model you want, and hit print! Legion and Legends sizes can fit on a 12x12cm print bed, but Deluxe requires at least 13x13cm of space.
The individual pieces are at Legends scale (At 10x scale to prevent corruption, remember to scale them down!), but the other files make the whole figure in one go.
I might tweak and change features due to feedback, once you've made him be sure to leave some!

Here's what gave me the inspiration:
Uploaded the individual pieces. To get them to the transformers scales, do as follows:
Loosened the swivel joints slightly, so assembly is easier
I removed the extra ankle connector that somehow ended up on the print bed.
Added a "crack" to the rib connectors so they have less trouble attaching, and fixed a slip up where I forgot to mirror the left thigh.
Added the Legion, Legends and Deluxe scales separately for ease of printing. I also improved the tolerances on the shoulder joint, so it will be more sturdy.

Whatever's best for you Strong plastics like ABS
Whatever you want
This is designed so that everything is snap in place. If you're having trouble getting the ball joints in, give them a little tap with your hammer. If the ball joints are affected by your printer's tolerances, try changing the size of the balls about 1-2%.
