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 Transformers Headmaster Jr Hosehead Reproduction Accessories on Shapeways   Leave a comment

PRHI-hosehead-03

I recently picked up a loose Transformers G1 Hosehead that was missing all of the accessories except for the head. This guy is always crazy expensive for some reason, so I spent a little time and made some 3D printed replacement accessories to complete mine.  These are available now from Shapeways in two listings, one is a sprue of all the black parts and the other is the seat/helmet.  You can pick them up now from the PRHI Shapeways Store. The pics here are of my home-printed samples. The parts are close copies from reference pictures, but not exact copies so you’ll be able to tell them apart.

PRHI Micro Moving Mecha Production Release- April 13th, 8PM EST   Leave a comment

Salespic copy

 

The newest 3D printed Prometheus Rising Heavy Industries action figure release is finally ready!  The PRHI Micro Moving Mecha production release is a project that has been in the works for much longer than I expected.  This 3 3/4″ tall, fully posable action figure is designed as a ‘what-if?’, asking what might have happened if Takara had gotten the license for Mobile Suit Gundam instead of the toy company Clover.  Based on a sketch by the illustrious Minoru Sashida, the Micro Moving Mecha depicts the Gundam as a Microman line diecast metal figure similar to the Jeeg and Gakeen figures released at the time.  The MMM is 3D printed in color, using silver plastic for the limbs and head to represent bare metal, with colored details only for the torso and accessories.  The toy features 5 mm peg construction in the major places, with 3 mm diameter hands, meaning that the MMM can hold some vintage Microman accessories, and that authentic Microman figures can wield the MMM’s Clover-inspired Beam Rifle and Beam Sabers.

The PRHI MMM will come in a bag with header and will be available in the PRHI Monster Kolor Shop (http://www.monsterkolorstore.com/prhi/) on April 13th at 8PM EST for $25.  I’ll put up a new post on the site with a direct link to the sales page on the night of the drop.  For now, enjoy the pics!

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.

PRHI 3D Printed ‘Box’ Mk I and Mk II 1/6 Scale Kit Printable Files   Leave a comment

detent-square1-01

I posted the PRHI ‘Box’ Mk I 3D printed toy a while back.  It was designed as an exercise for me to try out some new joint designs.  It’s a bootleg of ThreeA’s Square toy, with some additional detail and accessory bits by me.  I had never really planned on using this model for anything more, but I have received a couple requests to share the files.  Sort of an ‘open source’ Square bootleg.  I’m hosting a .zip folder of the STL files needed to print your own ‘Box’ for personal purposes.  The models are intended to be printed in ABS plastic, as I do not believe PLA has the elasticity for the ratchet joints in the legs to work properly.  In addition to the Box Mk I, I am posting files for the Box Mk II, which I do not believe I have ever shown off before:

PRHI-box-mkii-02

Here are download links for the two sets of files.  Each is a .zip folder containing all the parts needed to print a PRHI Box.  Parts that need to be printed more than once are labeled as such in the filename.  These are provided as-is, with no support.  If you print one and do something cool with it, send me an email!

PRHI Micro Moving Mecha (Prototype ver.) 3D Printed Action Figure   1 comment

PRHI-MicroG-Proto-01

The newest PRHI 3D printed toy was inspired by a sketch done by Minoru Sashida, Head Art Director at Namco Bandai and longtime Microman expert.  Sashida-sama had envisioned the RX-78-2 Gundam in the style of other robots released as diecast figures in the Microman line, such as Kotetsu Jeeg (鋼鉄ジーグ) and Magnerobo Gakeen (マグネロボ・ガ・キーン).  These diecast figures came about because the original toys for both series were made by Takara, so they were able to release these characters under the Microman banner as well.  Sashida-sama’s illustration is a ‘what-if’, rendering the Gundam in the same style as the other Micro robot diecasts.  I loved the drawing, and could immediately see how well it work would as a real toy.  I started with that sketch and ended up here, with a fully articulated Micro-sized Gundam.  I worked in the mecha’s classic accessories, as well as some design inputs from the original Clover toys that were released alongside the anime.  For the Micro Moving Mecha’s (MMM) debut, I had to go with the iconic black and white RX-78-1 Prototype paint scheme.  This fully painted one-off debuted at FOE Gallery’s LOOK5 show and will be available on their site here if it hasn’t sold yet: Shop FOE Store.  The first regular release of the PRHI MMM is in the works, and will be a printed in color version in blue and silver to look like a diecast metal figure.  Stay tuned for details!

PRHI 3D Printed TARS Commissions, 1/18 scale   Leave a comment

PRHI-TARS-clean-01

PRHI-TARS-clean-02

 

These two TARS were commissioned by private collectors after missing out on the first fully painted release.  Both requested a cleaner TARS without the weathering, so they are bright and shiny, with just natural shading instead of a lot of washes and effects.  3D printed in ABS plastic and painted with Monster Kolor.
