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 Space Walls Connectors Now Available on Shapeways   Leave a comment

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-space-walls-connector-d-02PRHI Space Walls Connector Type D corner connectors, compatible with both wall segment types, sprue of 4x.

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 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.
