Review – Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles “It’s Pizza Time” Oversized Glass Mug

Battlegrip.com - 25 May, 2015 - 07:38
Thank you, Entertainment Earth, for shipping this Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles “It’s Pizza Time” Oversized Glass Mug* to me for review. I strongly suspect either someone over there knows that Gina and I collect decorative glasses . . . well, it’s that or there was some dumb luck involved in this landing on my doorstep.

1982 Jawa Artwork by Tim Truman?

Battlegrip.com - 25 May, 2015 - 01:15
Not quite a Jawa, but this cover to a 1982 issue of SPI’s Ares Magazine definitely made me think that the Star Wars Jawa character design at least partially influenced a character shown in the Tim Truman artwork. Above, the cropped part of the magazine cover shows you what caught my eye. The overall painting is a fun design and... Read more →

West End Games’ Star Wars RPG in 1988

Battlegrip.com - 25 May, 2015 - 01:05
West End Games sure got a lot of use out of the existing Star Wars artwork back in the eighties. This July, 1988 Dragon magazine ad for the Star Wars roleplaying game (Amazon.com search*) shows us how the company used the art to create some of the most attractive ads in the game industry. I am certain the license was... Read more →

3D Printed Pulsar LED Watch for GI Joe 1/6 Scale

Prometheum5's collected works - 24 May, 2015 - 12:48

PRHI-GI-Joe-Pulsar-Watch-01

 

I was working on a James Bond-themed 12″ GI Joe kitbash based on the first teaser of Daniel Craig from SPECTRE, wearing a simple garb reminiscent of the duds Roger Moore wore in Live and Let Die.  The parts list was pretty easy overall, but there was one critical piece missing, Bond’s watch!  Moore’s Bond actually wears a gadget-laden Rolex Submariner for most of the movie, but in his first scene of the film he has on something far cooler, a Pulsar P2 2900 LED watch!  I have a bit of a fascination with LED watches, so I knew I needed to make one to complete my Joe Bond bash.

 

PRHI-GI-Joe-Pulsar-Watch-02

 

The trick with this model was keeping it small and in-scale looking while representing the metal link band and the shape of the face.  This project really pushed the limit of fine detail capabilities from a home-grade FDM 3D printer, but with a little paint the results look the part.

“Mad About Max” with Heavy Metal in 1985

With all of the excitement surrounding Mad Max: Fury Road (which I’ve seen twice, something I don’t normally do) I thought it would be fun to poke at archive.com and see what classic Mad Max information I could uncover.

Jim Starlin’s “Rampaging Hulk” #4 Cover from 1977

Yesterday, at a Waco bookstore, I ran across a few issues of Marvel’s 1977 Rampaging Hulk magazine. The price was super low, which meant that the magazines just had to come home with me. These are great fun to flip through — I’m sure some Marvel historian out there will let us know when Marvel put an end to these... Read more →
