PRHI Solid Leg Kit for GI Joe up on Shapeways   Leave a comment

There’s a new product up on the PRHI Shapeways Shop for customizing your GI Joe 12″ figures! Following on from the PRHI Solid Arm bionic arm kit is the PRHI Solid Leg for getting your wounded Joes back up on their feet! The kit will fit on vintage GI Joes as well as reissues and Costwold Elite Brigade bodies. The Solid Leg consists of a shin, foot, and ankle (the ankle and wrist are the same part). You can order a Solid Leg using the listings in the PRHI Shapeways Shop here. You can also pick up a PRHI Solid Arm using the listings here.

PRHI Blasters up on Shapeways   Leave a comment

More new 3D printed blasters for your 6″ action figures are up on the PRHI Shapeways Shop! First up is big mac-daddy blaster for the recent Marvel Legends Cable. He comes with a decent over-sized impractical gun already, but mine matches up with the classic Toybiz figure’s ridiculous weapon.

Next up by request are some classic toy blasters. First is the iconic vintage Lazer Tag pistol, which fits larger figures like Cable really well. The grip on this one is real chunky, so I’ll be offering a smaller version for more regular-proportioned 6″ figures soon.

Last is a weapon that needs no introduction. Pick up a Zapper so your figures can light up whatever enemies they face!

PRHI Masudaya 1/5 Robot B-9/YM-3 Replacement Claws Now on Shapeways   Leave a comment

 

I recently picked up the incredible vintage Masudaya Robot YM-3/B-9 1/5 scale talking vinyl kit from Lost in Space at a local comic show. It’s a gorgeous kit that I quickly build up, but the claws that come with the kit are a letdown in accuracy compared to the rest of the kit. I designed a simple, drop-in replacement part that is more screen accurate and fits your robot without any modification, available in red (and other colors) plastic now from the PRHI Shapeways Shop. You could potentially cut the claws apart at the middle and make them articulated the same way the stock kit parts work, or leave them as-is for a no-effort upgrade to your trusty bot.

PRHI Roadkill Rodney Debuting at Toy de Jour’s TMNT Group Show   2 comments

prhi-tmnt-bots-01

Toy de Jour in Chicago is hosting an unofficial Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles-themed Group Toy Show opening on Friday, March 3rd.  I was happy to get the opportunity to contribute to my first gallery show in quite a while, as it gave me the motivation to finish a new figure design that I’ve been working on for a while.  The Roadkill Rodney robots appear in the original TMNT cartoon pilot season, as well as the early games as really obnoxious enemies.  They are great little designs that play an important role in the show, capturing the animals used to make Bebop and Rocksteady, and causing the Turtles general grief.  Unfortunately, Playmates never released a toy of them in the original toyline.  Now, you can purchase your own fully 3D printed Roadkill Rodney figure, debuting at the show in an exclusive chromed up finish!  Also making his public debut is my MACC figure from one of my favorite episodes, Attack of Big MACC.  MACC has made a few brief appearances on my Instagram before now, but this is his first release, also in a swanky chrome finish.  Both figures one-offs will be available at the show on Friday, and I am planning a regular production release of each for the summertime.

Here’s all the info for the show.  I wish I could be there in person, as I’m sure it will be a great time!  Thanks to Toy de Jour for putting on a show with such a cool theme.  I cannot wait to see what other folks have come up with.

The Rodney figure turned out great, and I’m really excited to get them out there.  Each figure features articulation at the ‘waist’, wheel, and shoulders, with a swappable tentacle part.  The display stand is removable and the wheel really rolls.  I’ve been having a lot of fun with these early test figures, and have some plans for further tweaks and options down the line.  The chrome finish was a bit of an experiment that I’m pretty happy with the results of.

MACC features articulation at the neck, shoulders, guns, and waist.  It’s a goofy, awkward design that makes for a fun little figure that looks great alongside your Turtles.

More pics after the cut!

PRHI Space Walls Connectors Now Available on Shapeways   Leave a comment

prhi-space-walls-connector

A friend of mine told me about an awesome product known as Space Walls, which are unofficial Death Star corridor backdrop segments for use with your Star Wars action figures.  The main line is designed for 6″ Star Wars Black scale, and the individual segments look great.  Unfortunately, when my friend purchased some Space Walls, they did not come with any sort of connectors to attach the wall segments or help them stand up, which limited their usefulness.  He asked me if I could fix this, so I now have four types of PRHI Space Walls Connectors available through my Shapeways Shop.  The four types accommodate the two different styles of wall as shown below, plus pieces to help the walls stand, and corner connectors for more intricate displays.  You can purchase the connectors now to improve your setups!

prhi-space-walls-connector-b-02PRHI Space Walls Connector Type B for wall segments with light inserts, sprue of 2x of two styles.

PRHI Star Wars MicroGonk Available on Shapeways   Leave a comment

Here’s a little for fun item available now in the PRHI Shapeways Shop.  I had a request to make a version of my Gonk Droid toy in 25 mm scale for gaming.  The mini Gonk is available in Shapeways’ high-detail plastics for use with your minis, but you can also order a teensy weensy baby Gonk in Stainless Steel!  Shown above with a vintage Kenner 3 3/4″ Jawa.  The detail came out far better than I was expecting, and it makes for a delightful little bit of hand-gokin.  Pick up one today from the shop!
