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-a-02 PRHI Space Walls Connector Type A for regular wall segments, sprue of 4x.

 

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

 

prhi-space-walls-connector-c-02PRHI Space Walls Connector Type C connectors with footer supports, sprue of 4x.

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!

PRHI 3D Printed Lifesize Kenner Star Wars Weapons   1 comment

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.

PRHI Kenner Star Wars Accessories Available on Shapeways   1 comment

There are a number of new items available now in the PRHI Shapeways Shop.  You can now complete your vintage Kenner Star Wars figures with some 3D printed weapons!  The PRHI Kenner replacement weapon series is available in multiple colors of polished Strong Flexible plastics and grey metallic plastic.  Each gun comes as a sprue of four, and each weapon is marked with a ‘R’ molded into the handles for easy identification.  The first series is available now, with more on the way.  Check after the fold for a link to each, or check out the PRHI Shapeways Shop for a whole selection of 3D printed toy accessories, now revamped with better organization and categories.

PRHI Star Wars Black Gonk Droid 6″ on Shapeways   Leave a comment

PRHI-gonk-shapeways-03

The previous PRHI Gonk Droid 3D printed release was one of my most popular projects.  I get so many requests to offer more, but have not had the time to make another batch myself.  I finally spent the time to make a version of the PRHI Gonk Droid available through Shapeways.  This revised Gonk Droid is sold as a kit in two parts, the body and a leg sprue.  This means you can purchase the body printed in a nice bright color, and get the legs in black.  You could just block in the face details and have a great looking figure, or go all out and do a fully painted custom.  You can order the Gonk Droid now for a total of $60 using the below links to the PRHI Shapeways Store.  The kit snaps together with no glue needed, and I am really happy with the fit of the joints.

PRHI Space Blasters – Star Wars Black 6″ Shocktrooper Backpack and RT-97C Sandtrooper Rifle   4 comments

PRHI-SH-BP-08

Today I’ve got two new 3D printed Star Wars 6″ scale accessories available now in the PRHI Shapeways Shop.  First is a backpack for the Star Wars Battlefront Shocktrooper, and the second is the RT-97C Heavy Blaster Rifle wielded by Sandtroopers in the original film.  Both parts are available in Black Strong Flexible material and can be used as-is when you receive them.  I added the lightest bit of drybrushing and blocked in a few details for these photos to show off how sharp the prints came out.
