Star Wars 1/6 Scale Gonk Droid 3D Printed   5 comments

I’ve been on a bit of a Star Wars kick lately, sparked in part by realizing how awesome the current 1/6 scale offerings available are.  There’s all sorts of cool clone troopers and bounty hunters and all the great, colorful characters for sale, but droids seem to get a bit of a raw deal.  There’s a couple of protocol droid and astromech molds available, but they are either old cheapie Hasbro toys or outrageously overpriced Medicom toys.  There are so many other great background droid designs that I love, so I decided to take matters into my own hands.  The Gonk Droids, or Power Droids depending on who you ask, are such a classic, simple, goofy design that a Gonk was the obvious starting point.  Read on after the jump to see some behind the scenes of my design process and lots of photos.

I Needed A Simple Design to Test Some New 3D Printed Joints so I Made a Square   5 comments

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.

Allaround 1/18 Power Suits -101 and -102 Primed   Leave a comment

I made some pretty heavy progress on the Allaround this week, including getting weapons modeled and a second, just about final geometry print built. There are two minor fit tweaks left, but from the outside, these are the prints as theory case going to be. Next step for these two is some sanding and painting. The next step for the Allaround project is to order more joints and more plastic filament for a small production run…

3A Adventure Kartel Shots   Leave a comment

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 Nightwatch NOM Commander and Heavy Bramble Wallpaper   Leave a comment

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.

The first wave of Killer Culture E.killers is still available, so you should go check those out in the Store, but I wanted to share some photos of what new toys have been occupying my time lately: Henshin Cyborg!  The dizzying array of different figures and accessories available, both modern and vintage, makes for some great characters and fun combinations!
