After the most recent Paul Kaiju show at FOE, I got a chance to stand outside in the cold of frosty Northampton and talk shop with Sanjeev Teh Jerk, master of all things 3D design. While I have been going headlong into home-grown ABS printing, Sanjeev has been working on some face-meltingly cool multimedia affairs for production through Shapeways. Production method aside, we are both always looking to existing toys for inspiration. Sanjeev mentioned to me how he had recently cracked open a vintage Gokin and found a joint design that we both were pretty sure would work in 3D printed ABS. We talked, froze our asses off, and then I went home, and the gears were in motion.

I recent posted a review of 3A’s Nefarious 10 Finger Gang figure over at CollectionDX, and I ended up with some extra shots of the other figures I used in that review, so I figured I’d toss them up here for fun. The Adventure Kartel line makes for some of my favorite 1/6 character figures, and once I got to taking pics I couldn’t help but go a little overboard.
3A deliveries are the best. The new portable Dropcloth is insane. They managed to replicate the 1/6 bot at half the size perfectly, to a fault. The hands are really too delicate to hold the weapons, so I added a pin to the right palm that hooks into the weapon handles like on Gundam kits.
I made this image using photos from my own collection and my 3A NW NOM Commander and Heavy Bramble, which I have really been enjoying lately. After the fold are hi-res versions for 1920 and 1680-width monitors for your wallpaper use, if you are interested.
