3D Printed Space Blasters Wave 1 for use with Star Wars Black 6″ Figures

15 February, 2015 - 12:00

PRHI-SW-guns-01 copy

I’ve got some new items up in the PRHI Shapeways Shop, the first wave of Space Blasters!  The first batch of blasters are all things that I have received multiple requests for from Star Wars collectors.  Two are a set of blasters designed for use with the Star Wars Black 6″ Boba Fett Prototype version, based on photos and video of the early character design.  The other is a pistol for use by your SWB6″ Imperials.  Each is available in two materials on Shapeways, White Strong Flexible Polished, and Black Strong Flexible.  The WSF Polished versions have the best surface finish, and are better for painting (as seen in the promo pic above).  The BSF option is for folks that don’t want to paint their guns and they come dyed black from Shapeways, but are not offered with a polished finish.  Head on over to the PRHI Shapeways Shop to buy some space blasters at the link below:

3D Printed TARS 1/12 scale from Interstellar – Magnemo

9 February, 2015 - 05:00

PRHI-TARS-14

Interstellar was one of the tent-pole sci-fi movie releases of 2014.  The actual movie seemed to get mixed reviews (I dug it), but there was one thing everyone could agree on: the companion robot design was incredible!  The robots just about stole the movie, delivering the humor of R2-D2 and C-3PO with the intonation of HAL 9000. To boot, they featured a phenomenal mechanical design, able to solve a variety of problems in straightforward, real-world ways.  I went home after the movie convinced that I could make a working toy of the design and got to work.  The alluring thing about the robots TARS and CASE (and KIPP!) is the way their blocky bodies can reconfigure along a couple of axes.  For a big, DX style toy of the bots, I knew I wanted to be able to move parts along two axes seamlessly, which meant using magnets.  The end result is a little complicated and awkward, like the real thing, but it does work!  I made this first version in 1/12 scale to go alongside my 6″ figure collection.

I’ll be offering a smaller, 3 3/4″ scale version for sale in the near future, so check back here or follow me on Twitter and Instagram for news!

Here’s a shot of TARS alongside Star Wars Black 6″ Han Solo for scale.  TARS is painted with Vallejo alcohol-based metallics for a smooth finish, and detailed with Monster Kolor and acrylics.  I did the ‘face’ screen displays with waterslide decals, tinted with clear green paint.  The name and logo were painted on using a 3D printed spray mask.
