The nice thing about having a set of 3D model files drawn up for something is that the files can be scaled to any size you want, and printed out. Some adjustments were needed, but once I had my models ready for my PRHI Kenner Star Wars Accessories, I was able to print the same designs out, but at lifesize! Kenner’s Star Wars weapon sculpts are iconic amongst vintage toys, with a level of detail and charm informed by how those early toys came to be. They are immediately recognizable as representative of what we saw in the films, but they are an interpretation with their own merits. As such, it turns out that they make really satisfying lifesize toys, with chunky details and familiar shapes. So far I’ve completed two of the first weapons made, the smuggler pistol and imperial blaster rifle, as well as the later-made lightsaber, and my personal favorite, the Bespin blaster. I am working through more of the catalog and will post pics when they’re completed! Now I just need to figure out how to display them.
More pics after the fold!
